Beautiful View

The translation of Bella Vista from Italian is beautiful view and that is exactly awaits you at this lovely Lake Lure, North Carolina vacation rental. The area’s beauty can be seen from every room of this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. The lake and mountains are especially breathtaking from the wall of windows of the 2-story great room, the home’s 2 lakeside decks, and the semi-private lake access area. This home is 6.5 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 7.9 to Chimney Rock State Park and 18.2 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Numerous Amenities

In addition, this home has all of the amenities necessary for comfort. The great room features a gas-log fireplace and flat-panel TV with basic cable stations plus a DVD player. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a loft above with twin-size bed and a private bath with jetted tub.

A second bedroom has spacious with a full-size bed plus 2 sets of bunk beds for extra guests, and is adjacent to a large bath with double vanity, jetted tub and walk-in shower with 2 shower heads. There is a fully equipped kitchen and spacious laundry area on the main level. The unfinished lower level offers room for children and four-legged family members to run and play; and also includes a ping-pong table. Wood and tile are the primary flooring through most of the house.

Ample Opportunities to Relax and Unwind

 Just imagine . . .
. . . soaking in the upstairs jetted tub while gazing out at a glorious sunrise.
. . . enjoying the warmth of the gas-log fireplace.
. . . feeling the tension wash away in the walk-in shower with its two shower heads.
. . . basking in the warmth of the sunlight while relaxing in the cozy loft chair.
. . . wading or swimming in the semi-private lake access area (bring your float toys).
. . . daydreaming while on the lower deck chair swing or hammock chair.
. . . walking to the boat access area just minutes from the home.
. . . grilling and dining out in the fresh air.
. . . having a picnic lunch down by the lake and perhaps feeding the ducks.

Whether it is for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, this home is truly a delightful vacation destination that you will enjoy every season and year after year. Just pick up some groceries (an Ingles Market is 3.5 miles from the home) and then enjoy all this home and area offer.

Valerie and Ashley were very helpful and quick to respond. Could not ask for better!
This is a perfect place for addults and kids - we loved the space, especially the kitchen layout - able to lay out buffet meals on the island kitchen and sit at the dining room table with a wonderful view. The location was in the center of many activities, a plus when you have four kids, 10 and under!

The team was great. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and extremely helpful. The house and complete dealings with this company were phenomenal.
Hope to be back soon. The house was wonderful. There was plenty of room for everyone and the best views. Especially from the upstairs jacuzzi tub. The house also contained lots of board games and puzzles and corn hole as well as the ping pong table down stairs. We loved grilling almost every night. The house was laid out very well. My daughter loved the upstairs loft.

I couldn't have asked for a better realty company. Everything was quick and efficient on their end of the transaction
I would use your company again and again. I will not stay at this property again. It was difficult droving in and out of and the lake is a moderate/strenuos hike if you are in moderate shape.

Conveniently Located

Bella Vista 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 State Park and village. The iconic Chimney Rock (for which the village and park are 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.

If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (Memorial Highway). This stretch of road through the Hickory Nut Gorge has 14 hairpin turns and run through 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 this of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.

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.
