Casa Carroll is a cozy single-level Lake Lure lakefront cottage with well-appointed interior. It is ideal for a romantic getaway or just a quiet, peaceful escape (sorry, no four-legged guests). There is Wi-Fi Internet and 2 Smart TV's. This home is 6.8 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 8.1 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 18.5 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).
Upon entering there is a wonderful sunroom and then you walk through the door to a nice open living space, comfortable sofa that is also a sleeper, small tidy kitchen with island and large glass doors allowing the incredible lake and mountain views to jump right into the cottage.
The king size bed in the bedroom makes for a relaxing retreat after a day at the lake or fun area activities,and there is a full bathroom accessible from the bedroom and the living area. If you want to bring additional guests, the sofa converts to a queen size bed.
The dock at lakeside is a great place to sit and dangle your feet in the water or bring your boat for use on the lake (see the boating regulations for additional information).
Lake Lure Beauty Year Round
This home is perfect for every season. In spring the bushes and trees on the shady wooded lot and down the long drive will begin filling with leaves. Summer weather in the area is great most of the time. Autumn brings plenty of visitors to the area for the extraordinary colors. They are even more beautiful when reflected on the lake. With the absence of leaves on the trees in winter, you will see entirely new landscapes.
Plus, the Lake Lure/Chimney Rock area and surrounding communities have so much to offer including restaurants, shopping, and fun outdoor adventures you and your loved ones will never forget. See the Amenities and Notes for just a sampling of what is available.

You made it so easy. We had no problems booking paying I'm getting there the paperless was easy to do for an elderly person. I think I covered that in the first question. I had one phone conversation and it was all handled with that one call.
I wouldn't change a thing except that an elderly person cannot go down to the lower dock. I could not do this my friend did accomplish the steps. but that's okay I just stayed up on the top and had a beautiful time and a beautiful view.

All of the info we needed was provided with a helpful link a few days before our trip. We didn't need to bother anyone with any questions because they had thought ahead and provided it all before we could even ask.
We loved Casa Carroll and our sons (age 9 and 6) had an absolute blast jumping off the dock and swimming around in the lake. They were excited to eat dinner in the sunroom so we could watch the lake turn colors with sunset and then we fished every evening and caught 15 fish! This was a trip our kids will always remember and we loved that we didn't have to go anywhere to do different activities. We would love to come back again.

This is our second stay in Casa Carroll and it was great! The lake access and screened porch are amazing! We will be back again.

The person who made and then changed the reservation was top-notch!
Adequate. The swimming deck needs some work. If it were my property, I would redo all of the railing and shore up the metal steps down to the water at least. It would be nice if the house came with the use of kayaks or canoes.

Very nice, and let us know if there were anything we needed, just call.
Everything was described very well for the place we stayed. I have to say it was the cleanest place I've stayed, as if brand new. I loved that. I highly recommend your properties.
Really loved Lake Lure, and staying right in the water was nice.

Worked with several team members, all were awesome. First was correspondence relating to renting kayaks and having them delivered. We also had exchanges about the television and a recommended repair to a piece of furniture. I was frankly surprised at how quickly I always heard back. Great Job! You guys are blessed to live and work in that area. Carolina Properties staff was very responsive to my questions and comments.
You might consider leaving better directions about using the television(s). When selecting the place, the description stated that DirecTV was included but never explained that we would need out own passwords to access DirecTV programming. Who memorizes these things? So I missed my Denver Bronco football game - which was good because they were terrible - but that was frustrating. I also think Casa Carroll could be refreshed a bit. Add a floor lamp to the living room and maybe an end table or drink table. However, we had a great time and would rent through you again. Definitely recommend this property because of its' location on the water, the view, and the dock. The cottage is surprisingly small, although the owners have done well with what they have to work with. It was fine for my husband and myself and is very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings while watching sunrises and sunsets from the property as well as kayaking, hiking, and exploring Lake Lure and Chimney Rock.

Nice staff. Nice cleaning lady and check in lady.
I loved the place. We had two adults, slept in bedroom, and two teenagers that spent the night on the pullout couch. The dock was awesome to hang out on. I really wish that you would provide a canoe or something. We brought inflatables and that was great floating in the cove. Kitchen was set up well. The porch was super hot so couldnt use that room much. It would be awesome if it had an ac unit in there - we would have had all our meals there. We tried to eat in there one night but it was way too hot. Bathroom is beautiful and washer and dryer were great to have! Will stay there again!

CP employees were helpful and only a phone call away.
The only negatives were the lack of comfy outdoor seating. There is only a metal table w 4 dining chairs. Need reclining lounge chairs. Enjoyed having the floats to use. Wish there had been kayaks or canoe.
Over all wonderful stay. We would return to Casa Carroll.
Conveniently Located Casa Carroll overlooks and offers access to Lake Lure, ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. The Lake Lure beach is just several minutes from the home. There are 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 10 minutes from Chimney Rock Village and State Park. The iconic Chimney Rock (for which the area 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.
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.
