If you are interested visiting the cabin during these months we highly recommend getting in touch with us as soon as possible. Holidays, spring, and autumn are also extremely popular. The winter months are your best bet for a "last-minute" reservation, but we generally have many bookings even during these months. Please contact us ASAP so we can reserve your spot and make sure you have a wonderful vacation in Lake Lure!

Lake Lure has over 27 miles of shorelines and 1500 acres of water surface area. Anglers can catch a variety of fish ranging from Lake Trout to Largemouth Bass!

We want to visit Chimney Rock Park!

It's just a few minutes away. The Chimney itself is just hidden from view as you look out from the back deck (the rock face you're seeing is to the right of it.) Besides the fantastic view, there are also nice hiking trails up there. Getting to the top is a 26-story elevator ride.
