I called with a few questions and was met with a very friendly and accommodating staff. The paperless check-in and check-out are so easy. All of the information that I needed was on the link to Carolina Properties. It worked very well.
Sheltons Way was the perfect getaway! The home is beautiful and well equipped. I especially enjoyed the cool mornings on the screened porch. The only noise was the birds! Our mission was to relax and explore the area and the mission was accomplished! We especially enjoyed the Lake Lure area. My dog even felt at home walking on the quiet neighborhood streets. I will definitely recommend Sheltons Way to my friends.

I had called Carolina properties prior to our trip to find suggestions for activities that were family and their staff was more than willing to help. The home we stayed in was clean and exactly as described. With reasonable pricing and so much to do, we've already suggested Carolina properties to friends!
Beautiful! Deer and turkeys every day! Quiet and clean. Convenient area!

Appreciated the early check in.
Super clean and well appointed. A proper grill (gas or charcoal) would have been nice. The electric grill left a bit to be desired. The only issue (admittedly quite minor) is that the house had the cheapest toilet paper I have ever seen! Great house at a reasonable price. Note from Manager: Thank you for your feedback, always appreciated. For toilet tissue we use Scott Tissue because it's Septic Tank safe.

Every team member I've ever spoken to at Carolina Properties has been wonderfully helpful and always very quick to respond to questions we've had. We have rented I believe 5-6 times with Carolina Properties and every time they have been a true pleasure to work with. Always fast to respond with any questions we have about the properties we've stayed in beautiful Lake Lure. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know searching for a place to stay while visiting the area.
Lovely views, garage parking with electronic door opener, amazing deck area for enjoying meals or just your morning coffee. There is even a screened in porch to enjoy during the rain. The kitchen is wonderfully spacious and has all of the amenities anyone could every need. Loved having a big bathtub in the master. Loved this place. Gorgeous home with amazing nature surrounding the area. Wonderfully peaceful. If you love the sound of birds, nature and tranquility ... this is the place to stay. We even saw deer every morning.

Very knowledgeable and helpful. This was a last minute decision to stay since we were attending the festival and live in Belmont/Mt. Holly area. We had planned on driving each day so we made a last minute request and you did a very good job fulfilling it.
House was great and we had a great time. Kitchen could use a little more such as bowls. Overall everything is good. All cups/glasses were "glass". With kids it would be nice to have more plastic than glass. But not a show stopper from ever staying there again. Great home, loved it.

Valerie was extremely helpful.
We loved the property. So spacious. If returning, would stay here again. My only complaint is the yard. Had fire ants. Had to be extremely careful outside. Also, the letter at house contradicts w/letter in envelope rcvd. at office. The part dealing with thermostate and turning off water and I can't remember what the other was. We followed the one at house. Hope it didn't create a problem. Again, loved our visit. One other thing, NO PHONE. Cell phones didn't work. If we had an emergency, I don't know what we would have done. Thank God, we didn't.


Conveniently Located

Shelton's Way is about 13 minutes from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and village. Lake Lure was ranked by National Geographic Magazine 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 village and State 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. 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.

It is also just 15 minutes from the quaint Village of Tryon, which is located on the first rise of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition to the Tyron International Equestrian Center, it offers wineries, golf, unique shops. On a historical note, it is the birthplace of legendary Jazz singer, pianist, songwriter Nina Simone. A statue and plaza in town honor her memory.

If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt 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 this stretch of road, it is something to add to your bucket list. Actor Norman Reedus of The Boondock Saints and The Walking Dead fame, featured the parkway on a 2016 episode of his AMC TV series Ride with Norman (Appalachia: Blue Ridge Parkway, Season 1 Episode 3). Just 1.25 hours from the home and five miles off the parkway is Maggie Valley, home to the Wheels Through Time transportation museum that features rare American motorcycles, memorabilia, and a distinct array of unique one-off American automobiles.

This 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 home 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 see our Local Area Guide.
