It is well-equipped all the comforts of home plus some!  The main level has a large great room with a wall of windows, gas-log fireplace; gourmet kitchen (with granite countertops and upgraded appliances); half bath with full-size stack washer and dryer; and master bedroom with queen bed, large walk-in closet and spacious private bath. The upper level has two bedrooms with queen size beds, a lovely full bath in the hall, and large loft separating the the two bedrooms.

A River Runs Through It

Winding River House has endless options! Go tubing in the river, jump in for a swim, or grab a pole and fish—all right from the backyard or common area in the community.  

This home is 6.0 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 7.3 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 17.3 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

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.  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.

This beautiful 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.​Riverbend at Lake Lure Amenities
