Only meet one member and she was very kind and friendly. Carolina Properties made it easy to come and get the keys with no delay and we could start our weekend out fast. The property had everything ready for you to stay the night and not worry about anything unlike a lot of other properties we have stayed at.
The Le Petite Chateau was a perfect house and location for us. We loved every view we had from the house. We will be staying here again. Loved the house and the location it was only me and my wife but the property was designed for 2 couples and would be perfect for a 2 couple trip.

The woman who was our connection via phone was always professional and friendly.
This was an absolute pleasure for all of us. My family has decided to come back and that's good enough for me:) In fact, we were wondering if Le Petite Chateau would be for sale?

Deziree was wonderful. Ashley was most helpful.
We enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately I my Sonicare toothbrush, but the staff promised it's return. Thank you. Carolina Properties honestly represents their property. You get what you see. Communication can be a bit of a challenge is you need quick access to assistance. Le Petite Chateau was great for us (2 coupes). We each had our own private space. We enjoyed breakfast on the top level home and dinner on the deck overlooking the lake in the lower level. It's very private. Driveway access was a plus with turn around space. This property is upscale and clean. It is no cabin on the lake. It is a comfortable home. The only drawback is that this property does not provide any lake toys (floats, tubes, noodles, water chairs, kayak, or paddle board). That would have been a real plus. We will consider Le Petite Chateau on our next visit.

Team members were always extremely pleasant and helpful. They always answered the phone right away, no matter what time it was. I highly recommend booking through Carolina Properties.
The housewares in the upper apartment at Le Petite Chateau were quite lacking. There were no dinner plates at all, and no coffee mugs, only really small teacups. There were no mixing bowls or colander. The only items that could be used in the oven were a small brownie pan and a muffin tin. The lower apartment was somewhat better furnished with housewares, and it did have dinner plates and coffee mugs. Neither apartment had any tools that were really suitable for using on the gas grill. Other than that, we absolutely loved Le Petite Chateau, and found it to be clean, comfortable, roomy, and beautifully furnished, both upstairs and downstairs. All the appliances were very up-to-date, and both bathrooms were lovely, with plenty of nice towels. The dock was perfect for swimming off of, and the large boathouse provided a good place to store water toys and to escape during the afternoon rain showers. The view of the lake and the mountains was stunning, both from the dock and from the house. Reply: Thank you for your review. Not sure what happened to our kitchen ware but it will be replaced immediately. We hope you can visit again soon!

We loved the property. Beautiful setting. The only thing I would add is a large heavy frying pan. Everything was clean and beautiful. We would love to stay again.


Conveniently Located

Le Petite Chateau overlooks and offers access to Lake Lure, ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. The Lake Lure beach is just several minutes from the home. There are several excellent golf courses nearby, including Apple Valley Golf Course, Bald Mountain Golf Course, and Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort, which Golf Digest rated as one of the top 50 golf destinations in the US.

This beautiful home is centrally located, just 10 minutes from Chimney Rock Village and State Park. The iconic Chimney Rock (for which the area was named) was featured on Arthur Frommer's Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Budget Travel magazine. The park received the platinum award for Favorite State Park in Blue Ridge Country’s 2013 Best of the Mountains travel poll, with voting every five years and covering seven southern states in the Appalachian Mountains.

It is only 15 minutes from Bat Cave; 35 minutes from Hendersonville; 50 minutes from Asheville; and about 2 hours from Charlotte, North Carolina. Also nearby are Pisgah National Forest (less an 1 hour from Lake Lure), which has over 500,000 acres of protected forest, and DuPont State Recreational Forest (1.25 hours from Lake Lure) with over 10,000 acres. These forests feature hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, and horse trails, exquisite waterfalls, and beautiful mountaintop views. If you and/or your children are fans of The Hunger Games book and movie, a scene with Katniss and Gale was shot at the Pisgah National Forest. A few small but significant scenes were also filmed at the DuPont State Recreational Forest.

The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock area is conveniently situated for outdoor adventure including horseback riding, tubing, water sports, and hiking; museums and theater; the Biltmore Estate and Village; shopping and restaurants; and so much more. For additional information and activities, see our Local Area Guide.
