It has sunny and shady porches overlooking lovely mountain vistas in the private, gated community of Riverbend at Lake Lure. This cabin is 7.5 miles from the Lake Lure Beach, 8.5 miles to Chimney Rock State Park and 19 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

The location offers easy access to nearby restaurants, zip lines, hiking, fishing, boating, swimming. It is a short drive to the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park; quaint shops in Chimney Rock and Hendersonville; and music and theater in Brevard and Flat Rock.

A Shady Retreat has endless options! Go tubing in the river, jump in for a swim, or grab a pole and fish—all within minutes from the cabin in common area in the community.  

Riverbend at Lake Lure Amenities

In addition, you can also enjoy all the amenities Riverbend has to offer: swim in Mirror Lake, build sand castles on Mirror Lake Beach (there’s a play area for children); have a meal at the covered picnic site complete with picnic tables, rocking chairs, stone fireplaces to BBQ lunch, restrooms and spectacular views; hike, bike, or jog one of the many trails; or just sit and relax by the waterfall and river. The fishing is excellent and there is a bait shop just across the road near the main entrance.

Perfect Year Round

A Shady Retreat is perfect for every season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter where a cozy cottage feels just right. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect all the time and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful sunsets from every window, not to mention the awesome mountain views. In the spring everything is beginning to bloom and the area is known for the beauty of its autumn colors.

No matter the season, this mountain home, our beautiful area, and Lake Lure have so much to offer, whether it is plentiful choices of restaurants or shopping, or a fun outdoor adventure you and your loved ones will never forget!

Notes

Conveniently Located

A Shady Retreat is about 15 minutes from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and Village. Lake Lure was ranked by National Geographic as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. There are water sport rental options (kayaks, wake boards, boats, etc.) and pontoon tours of the lake.

The iconic Chimney Rock, for which the State Park 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. There are also 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.

If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (curvy and scenic Memorial Highway) through Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, Gerton, Fairview, toward Asheville to pick up what many consider the most beautiful length of road in this country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you have not traveled any stretch of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.

This lovely home is centrally located just 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, just click our Local Area Guide.
