Description

Picturesque Mountain Escape
If you are looking to escape to the beauty of nature, the picturesque atmosphere of Mountain Lake Retreat is just for you! This beautiful craftsman-style home is located in Lake Lure Village Resort, a private, gated community that began as a children’s summer camp. This getaway is nestled between beautiful Lake Lure and Rumbling Bald Mountain, with over 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. It is perfect for all activity levels, from easy walking to rock rappelling. This home is 3.3 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 3.4 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 21.7 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Plan to spend your nights watching deer, wild turkey, owls, and flying squirrels, but please do not feed the bears! A waterfall and several creeks are located within walking distance and there is also a hiking trail just past the home. Mountain Lake Retreat also offers Lake Lure access.

Maximum Comfort
In the home itself there are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 2 levels, allowing you and your family (including the four-legged members) plenty of privacy and an abundance of space with maximum comfort. The main level offers a spacious front porch, living room with wood-burning stove, kitchen/dining area, 2 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. The upper level loft has a king bed, daybed, foosball table, and bathroom with claw-foot tub. 

Perfect for Every Season
Each season offers its own unique, unrivaled beauty. Whether you enjoy campfires with s’mores and an acoustic guitar, camping beneath the stars, packing a picnic lunch for the trail, or adventuring into town to see the sights; you will find that the sky’s the limit for your next getaway to remember!

See the Amenities and Notes for a sampling of what the Lake Lure/Chimney Rock and surrounding communities 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 welcome you to be our guest!

We only met ome persom who we assumed worked on the property. She was very nice, offered to take our picture, asked how our stay was going, and made sure not to be intrusive.

This was the perfect getaway for our annual friend vacation. We brought all of our own food and the property had everything we needed so we never had to leave the gate for our 4 day weekend. We look forward to coming back annually. Perfect location, had everything we needed (except extra toilet paper but we managed, and to be fair we were warned). Nice neighbors, great time of year to come. Home was cozy but not crowded, beds were comfortable, furniture met all of our needs, appliances were really nice, great value for the cost, decor was very nice (some of us are more eco conscious so not seeing some of the traditional decor that tend to be in cabins was nice).

Beautiful home on a large lot, with plenty of room for two or three families. Richly appointed with all the conveniences of home. Although the house itself was fantastic...clean, spacious, beautiful...it was a ways off the beaten path. I would have preferred one a little closer to civilization, however, all things considered...we had a fabulous time.

loved the property.well stocked clean you almost need to bring nothing it could use some small measuring cups. loved access to lake and the row boat. my dog enjoyed it it as well. saw deer and a bear. I loved the property but it's a bit far from home for me and a little to far from other places we wanted to see. roads are crazy. We had a bad rain and a tree went down when my son was 7 miles from home and had to be rerouted 2 hours to get to the cabin. loved the Lake and the little town. GOOD shopping friendly people. Grocery store a bit of a hike.

Memories from May 2017 Waking up to a cool mountain breeze ,the feel of my feet on the pine floor as I fixed a cup of coffee .Enjoying the smells of the coffee and the surrounding forest as I watched the sun light up the mountain tops viewed from the veranda. Serenaded by a chorus of mocking birds. Sharing a mountain path with a turtle as I walked to the lake . Seeing the foot prints of deer that traveled before me. This was just the first morning of my stay at this wrap around comfortable home. The photos and descriptions on this website just perfectly describe my time here. It can be yours also. Jim

Notes

Conveniently Located

Bear Moon Lodge 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 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.

This lovely 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: museums and theater; the Biltmore Estate and Village; outdoor adventure including horseback riding, tubing, water sports, and hiking; shopping and restaurants; and so much more. For additional information and activities, just click our Local Area Guide.
