This home is 9.6 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 11 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 20.8 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Great Gathering and Entertainment Spaces
This beautiful resort home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and can sleep 8 comfortably (occupancy is 10 as there is a day bed with trundle in the loft and futon). With its open floor plan and 3 levels, it is convenient for a family group and equally nice for 3 couples traveling together. 

While there are private spaces, the home also offers ample spaces to gather. The loft above the main living area offers a comfortable day bed and trundle and cozy futon and large television.

The kitchen is perfect for gathering with large ceramic tile island, custom cabinetry; a great place to enjoy morning coffee. The dining table seats 6 and there is additional seating at the kitchen island. Get your family and friends cooking together in the fully equipped kitchen or go out on the patio and grill under the stars (the gas grill is near the back entry for ease of cooking near the kitchen).

The lower level is a great addition and features side by side game rooms with a ping pong table, a pool table; let the competition begin!  This level also features another kitchen and family room with large television, outside entrance, bedroom with queen bed and television, bath with shower, and more. 

Perfect Getaway for Every Season
This home is perfect for every season! Spring brings the blooms of dogwood trees and mountain laurel. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect nearly all the time. The stunning array of colors in autumn is legendary. With the absence of leaves on the trees, winter offers broader views.

I called Carolina Properties before our trip with questions about the property, the resort, and the lake in general, and I received helpful answers. We had a wonderful time at Mountain Jack's in Lake Lure where we stayed. Carolina Properties gave us all the information we needed prior to our trip. When we arrived at the property, the power had been out so the electronic lock didn't work, but we made a call to Carolina Properties, and a lady answered immediately who gave us an emergency code to get in.
The layout was perfect for our group of 8 adults. The home was clean and nicely furnished.The home was clean, and the layout was perfect for our group of eight. We enjoyed the amenities of Rumbling Bald Resort. Because there is one thermostat for the three floors, the upstairs can get warm and the bottom floor can get cold when the thermostat is set for a comfortable temperature for the middle floor. That's the only reason I'm giving it a 9 rather than a 10. The warm upstairs is more of an issue than the downstairs in the summer, of course. We did appreciate the fan provided so that we could try to blow cooler air up there. We also ran into a problem with the trash/garbage when we left on Monday (Labor Day). The people at Rumbling Bald refused to take it (told my husband they were too full or something) and the local dump was closed. We had to take bad smelling garbage (because we were asked not to use garbage disposal much) in our car for a long ride until we got to a rest area where we could dispose of it.

Again easy to work with and when I had to contact on Monday morning regarding trash and the resort not being able to take anymore due to overflow the contact was helpful and apologetic and gave the answer to the problem.
Nice and clean. Staff was very easy to work with and all of the information provided was spot on.

I didn't personally work with staff, my friend Kathy arranged the week.
Loved my stay at Mountain Jack's, relaxed and recharged! Brought our clothes and food, the home had everything else we needed.


Conveniently Located
Mountain Jack's Retreat vacation home rental offers access to Lake Lure, ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. The Rumbling Bald resort offers the Bald Mountain Golf Course and Apple Valley Golf Course. Nearby is the 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 13 minutes from Chimney Rock State Park and village. The iconic Chimney Rock (for which the village and park were 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 has 14 hairpin turns and runs through the Hickory Nut Gorge communities of 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. For additional information and activities, check out our Local Area Guide and the Visitor Guide that we provide.
