Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Owner is very helpful and price was very reasonable. It did not feel like a rental, it felt more like home. Very close to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure - both worth the short trip.

This place is wonderful and is the perfect location if you're looking to explore near Lake Lure. The owners were great and very accommodating. My only regret is that it took me so long to write a review! I will definitely be going back.

The kitchen was stocked and had many extras like paper plates, paper towels, condiments, etc. We spent a day at Chimney Rock and enjoyed dinner at La Strada's. This home is very close to many things. Only wish we would...
