Pros: Excellent Antique Displays and Location
Cons: Without Antiques ....it would look like a motel 6 room
Paid over $200 for a one night stay for two.
The "free" morning stale pastry and an apple plus coffee was a joke.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
We had our wedding at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa in April of 2014. It was an outstanding weekend and I cannot say enough nice things about the staff and our experience there.
The entire process of visiting, booking of the venue, menu tasting, all the little details through the final brunch the day we left was very professional, accommodating and really stress-free, coming from the perspective of a bride who planned the event with the help of a couple key people. Our event manager was fantastic and made the whole process very enjoyable.
I know some reviewers speak to the small size of the rooms, and yes, that is true, but I believe that is also part of the charm of this historic building. This is an old Inn... We stayed in the Swayze Suite, which was a perfect home base for the bride/groom.
Also, the food was top notch!
Great Job Lake Lure Inn!! We loved every minute as did our guests.
Overall the experience was great. The bad:Our room was very small. There was only one lamp which made it hard for my husband and I to read. The bathroom wall had been repaired which was poorly done not the quality I would expect from such a reputable hotel. It could have at least been covered with framed artwork.
The good: Beautiful grounds, a Great staff, A wonderful brunch buffet with a Bloody Mary bar however the mixer used was a little too much like a cocktail sauce for my liking. The conference room used for our event was just right. We would return and stay there again. The staff was top notch.
The inn was absolutely gorgeous. The wait staff from the restaurant and the Moose & Goose Lounge were more than accommodating. They carried our food and desserts to the room both nights even though we were right there and able to do so. The front desk staff were helpful during every shift. The inn itself was so beautifully decorated and it felt as if we had been transported back to 1927 when it first opened. Pleasantly surprised would be an understatement and we highly recommend the Inn. We will definitely return the next time we visit the area.
This Inn takes you back to a time with linen table cloths and doormen. The room is smaller than many modern day places and the electrical sockets are often power cords with extensions to allow you full access for all your power needs, however the courtesy extended by the staff more than makes up for these issues. We attended an annual event her and it was one of the best places yet. The mountains are beautiful and the food worth eating. There is an elevator for the higher floors but it can be congested and slow at busy times.
After three hours of driving through Friday afternoon traffic it was amazing how easy it was to relax in the tranquil environment of the Lake Lure Inn. Our room was in the beachside building and the comfortable décor in this vintage motor lodge triggered warm memories of family trips long ago. However, the amenities were 21st century. And, walking on the boardwalk around the beach late in the evening gave us views of the moon and stars that cannot be found at home.
The only negative thing that we experienced was with the Sunday brunch. Our group was told that we would receive a 15% discount. When we went to pay for it as we entered, the cashier told us that it was 10%. We reasserted what we had been told and she let us know in no uncertain terms that it was indeed 10%. At that point we chose not to have the brunch. And, we heard another employee inform her that 15% was correct. This did not interfere too much with our good day; we joined friends at one of the restaurants nearby. And, the positives throughout the rest of the weekend earned the very good rating.
