Lake Lure, NC is one of our favorite places to visit and the Lodge on Lake Lure one of our favorite spots. Many guests come to the area to visit Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock State Park or golf at the nearby course, however, to us the Lodge is the destination. The lake is so beautiful and we love to jump in for a refreshing swim and then relax in any number of welcoming places on the property to read or nap. If you enjoy taking a leisurely bath, the tubs are amazing--either old timey claw foot or jacuzzi tubs are available as well as separate showers. The breakfast is always a treat. I had the best eggs benedict and french toast ever the last morning of our stay and the fresh, homemade treats with coffee/tea are always a treat in the afternoon and evening. The staff is so welcoming and always available if you need anything.

We recently visited The Lodge on Lake Lure with another couple and had a wonderful trip. It was so serene and beautiful! It was close enough to visit The Biltmore in Asheville but far enough away do nothing but relax and enjoy the scenery. It was fantastic. I would highly recommend the Inn to anyone. The food was fantastic and the staff so friendly. They go out of their way to keep their guests happy. Our room faced the lake and it was so nice to sit and watch the moon over the water and hear the crickets. I wish I could go there next weekend!

We spent four nights at the Lodge in the Magnolia Room. The balcony offers a view of the lake and the beautiful grounds. The room was very comfortable and furnished with antiques. The common areas are spread out and allow for privacy. The breakfast each morning is cooked to order and delicious. The late afternoon appetizers and wine are also delicious including at least one hot dip as well as cheese and crackers. This afternoon event allows for fellowship among guests and we met several enjoyable couples and shared a couple nights out with one of them.

This trip is our first to stay at Lake Lure but we will definitely be back for another stay at the Lodge. The hospitality was perfect.
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary during the stay so the inn providied complimentary champaigne for our special day.

The complimentary canoes are fun for a few hours out on the lake to relax and enjoy the mountain views. The grounds are well manicured with lovely flowers and vines.

Don't miss this special place.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Lodge on Lake Lure. It was very beautiful and peaceful. Our room had a view of the lake and Chimney Rock Mountain. I have travelled all over the world and can't think of any place I have stayed that was any nicer. Our room was very cozy - immaculate & the bath was to die for. The soaking tub overlooking the lake was the ultimate luxury. We enjoyed the "wine @ 5" with snacks as well as the first class breakfast. I will definitely come again.

The woman who runs this lodge likes kids who are "seen" but not "heard." There is a grand piano in the lodge, but as she pointed out "it is only for children who have had years of lessons!" Some adults were instructed to not let their 14 year old children be unaccompanied without an adult in the lodge. Thankfully this was not an issue for our family. She has lots of mean-spirited quips to make, but mostly stays out of your way.

Our room was extremely small, it had a king bed and a pull out bed for one child. We were not told that the room only accommodated 3 people until after we arrived. However, we were charged an additional $38.00 per child for, "extra towels and their breakfast." I thought $300 dollars a night seemed extremely excessive for the level of service and the unpolished room decor.

This hotel's major asset is the lake setting. We enjoyed the lake location and the restful nature of the hotel. The lodge great room is spectacular and some of the staff are approachable and good-natured. I found the food at Lake Lure to be deep friend and not healthy and fresh. My recommendation is to go to Asheville to eat. It's only a 40 minute trek through the mountains, but well worth the entertainment.

We were later told that sometimes the $38/kid fee is waved - but it wasn't for us. I believe the fee is totally unfair and jacks up the price to an unreasonable amount. I think this is a wonderful place for a couple who wants romance but not for a family with kids.
