The Enchanted is a beautiful log home located in a private community on the east side of Lake Lure. The peaceful, wooded location is just minutes from the beach at Lake Lure, area restaurants, and activities. This destination will surely spark treasured family memories for years to come (sorry, no four-legged family members). This home is 7.3 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 7.9 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 16.2 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).
If you enjoy privacy, The Enchanted offers seclusion. Lake Lure Beach and Marina are not too far away if you plan on venturing out to enjoy a weekend by the lake. Chimney Rock State Park is less than 15 minutes from the cabin if you would rather spend the day hiking along the scenic trails.
Worthy of Log Home Magazine
The wonderful two-story great room has beautiful wood floors, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with gas logs, and locally crafted furniture. The living room features a gas log fireplace, comfortable seating, large TV viewable from the kitchen, and a dining room table. The entire home is filled with extra special features you do not see in the average log home, and it is fast becoming one of our favorites! You will find a perfectly tucked-in library/reading area surrounded by natural wood and curvy staircase railings. Open and above the living room is a bright and cozy loft with an office work area for one or two who may need to keep up with work or business projects while still enjoying our beautiful area. This home does have WI-FI available.
The king bed suite is spacious and luxurious and has a magical, mystical bathroom anyone would love with many charming decorative accents. Enjoy a relaxing soak after a day spent hiking, swimming, or fishing.
Guests will appreciate the two additional bedrooms on the upper level. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has a queen and a twin bed. There is a full bath (tub/shower combination) located between these two bedrooms.
Covered porches surround the front and side of the cabin, and ample glass doors and windows offer soothing views of the woods beyond. You will enjoy the porch swing and extra-large rockers. There is also a back deck off the kitchen/dining area where guests can enjoy cooking on the gas BBQ grill with the sounds of nature.
This mountain home is perfect for every season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter, where a cozy cabin feels just right. Stay warm by the fireplace or relax in the jetted tub in the master bath. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect all the time, and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful natural surroundings from the scenic porch overlook.
Something for Everyone
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. See the Amenities and Notes for just a sampling of what this home and area offer.
If you visit once, we are confident you’ll return again and again for the rest, beauty, fun, comfort, and hospitality. We hope to see you soon and look forward to you being our guest!
If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (Memorial Highway). This stretch of road has 14 hairpin turns and runs through the Hickory Nut Gorge communities of Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, and Gerton. Continue 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 of this road, it is something to add to your bucket list.
The Enchanted is about 10-15 minutes from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and village. National Geographic Magazine ranked lake Lure as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. There are water sport rental options (kayaks, wakeboards, boats, etc.) and pontoon tours of the lake.
The iconic Chimney Rock, for which the village and State Park were 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.
Just 20 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 than 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, 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.
