It was great - communication was easy and fast and made it a seamless stay.
The house was incredible - very open and spacious, yet quaint and cozy. We had everything that we needed in the house, the beds were very comfortable and living room was perfect for our group of friends. We had 6 people, but easily could have 8 or more with the amount of space that was available. There was also ping pong in the basement, which was super cool.

Knowing we can rely on the team at Carolina Properties is one of the main reasons we have been returning to Lake Lure year after year. Carolina Properties has never let us down. They are consistently very quick to respond, provide information, and resolve any issues. Valerie and her team go above and beyond to make Lake Lure vacations worth returning for!
Perfect home for a large group/multiple families in a very convenient location! Beautiful property backing up to the Broad River, two decks and no shortage of beds, bathrooms and space. Clean and well-stocked! What a great house! We met with another family of four for a reunion weekend and thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Plenty of room! The kids loved the bottom floor with triple-decker bunk beds, ping pong table, and a tv to hook up their video games. The kitchen is well-stocked, extremely clean, and comfortable. And the property is just gorgeous. The home had everything we needed. FYI: no TV or internet, but found that to be a plus!

We booked this property for our elopement weekend and it couldnt have been anymore perfect. It was a nice surprise pulling into the neighbor and seeing it was a gated community. The house was spacious and comfortable. The 3 floors were perfect for us getting ready so that my husband and I could get ready on separate floors.

I had changed the plan of when we were arriving to a day early. When I called they knew who I was and were very proactive in getting my information on the screen. I called about a piece of furniture that was broken, and they knew who I was and the cabin name immediately. The responses I got from them were quick and courteous as well as personable. Great job putting your team together.
This was a great get-a-way cabin for a large family. We got away from home and each other when needed. We all thought the cabin was beautiful, except the lack of coffee mugs, just had to get up early to get one.

The woman I spoke to on the phone on Thursday and Friday was really really helpful.
The Winding River House was a great property and a really good location. We were very happy. However, I think there could have been a few more amenities (and/or furniture rearrangement) to facilitate use of the outdoor living area. First, they didn't have enough outdoor seating (especially for eating). There is a lot of deck space up and down, but only 1 standard dining table, 1 caf table, and 2 Adirondack chairs (1 broken). This would mostly be solved by adding 1 more dining set with chairs. Second, the layout of the living room made it very awkward to get outside (especially carrying food). The long bench behind the sofa prevents the door to the deck from swinging fully open. We ended up moving the bench, but it would be nice if wasn't there at all. Finally, I think the downstairs bedroom could use a couple more pieces of furniture--at least 1 bedside table (there's only 1)and maybe a small dresser.


Conveniently Located

Winding River House is about 10 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 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.

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.

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.
