Great home! Great fun for the family!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of four and two dogs! The canoe and paddle boats were a hit along with the games offered at the activity center within the resort: miniature golf, basketball, life-size chess, large Jenga, and large checkers. We enjoyed pool at the house each evening and swinging on the porch each evening. The owner was very responsive throughout our trip, checking to be sure that we had everything we needed. If I ever return to Lake Lure, I'll definitely stay here again!

Property was clean, inviting, and very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 nights here with our 3 children. The house had everything we needed. We had a great time eating breakfast on the back porch each morning and enjoying the lake access. My husband caught 4-5 good size fish during our trip and our children had a blast going out on the canoe. The water was quite clear once you got about 20 feet past the dock. Lots of wild life - friendly ducks, water foul, and woodpeckers. We also took advantage of the resort amenities - beach, indoor pool and walking trails. There were also lots of great restaurants nearby - check out Luna del Sol. We would stay here again. Be aware that cell reception is spotty north of the resort but the wifi worked great and there is house phone.

House is large and spacious. Pool table was popular with the kids. Also the porch swing.

  • 2 of 5

Cooking was somewhat difficult as the sharp knives were not at all sharp and the pots and pans were too old and even unhealthy to cook out of. The dish washer worked fine; so did the washer and dryer. Both lakes were too warm for swimming and murky, especially the smaller one. Lake Lure was the cleaner of the two but the cottage is not on it, as I was told. Swimming was not good as the water was not refreshing; it was too warm. I had specifically asked for a mountain lake on the cool and clean side for swimming. I was disappointed.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the thank you note that was left the kitchen counter saying how much you enjoyed your stay . I surely didn't expect to get a 2 star review... As I did not hear from you all week after speaking to you after your arrival on Saturday and the lovely note was left at the end of your stay. I could have brought you new knives and a new frying pan.. I try to ensure all my guests are happy .Sorry you were disappointed with the Lake Lure and Bald Mountain Lake swimming. Mid August the lake water can be warm. We do offer 3 great pools in the resort in the summer, if you find the lake water to be not so refreshing. My advertising description is quite specific that I am on Bald Mountain Lake and would not have told you my house was on Lake Lure. The Resort where my house is located is on Lake Lure. I will take inventory of my pots and pans and correct the knife and pot issue. I cleaned the house myself the week prior to your arrival just to make sure the house was perfect for you , there are lots of pots and pans I am sorry that missed the scratched ones. I am glad some of your family members enjoyed their stay . Update. I sharpened all the knives and left the knife sharpener for the guests to use, added 2 large baking dishes and I got rid of the 2 Teflon frying pans that were scratched and added new ones.

Mountain get-a-way

  • 4 of 5

This year we decided our family vacation would be in the mountains instead of on the beach and we enjoyed it very much. We had 10 people and the house accommodated us very well with the 5 bedrooms. Both children and adults enjoyed having the pool table to use on the ground floor and it also provided a second space for the kids to play or watch their own tv shows. The cable and wi-fi worked well. The laundry area was great as we had 4 families there. We liked that the kitchen was open to the dining and livingroom and it had everything you might need but having a couple of Corningware type casserole dishes would have been great as we cooked in everyday. We were able to have a fire one night to toast marshmallows but gathering wood wasn't as easy as one might think even with all the woods around. The paddle boat was fun but only used one as the other had no rudder but that was enough. We brought along several yard games to play but didn't get them out as we were there the week that the yard wasn't scheduled to be mowed. Would recommend having it done weekly in the summer months. As for the resort, everyone loved the amenities. The kids were at the beach and pool every day and got to play putt-putt. The guys got in a few rounds of golf on the beautiful course and not to leave the girls out, a spa day was had! All in all, we had a great time and would come back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Yes I added the second paddle boat this summer. The rudder kept getting bent on the original boat from being drug up onto the grass. It is much easier to steer with a paddle. Great for boat races...
