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.
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.

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.
