Basswood Bungalow is a tidy two-level Lake Lure lakefront home with comfortable interior and expansive outside decking for your outdoor enjoyment. Lots of windows to enjoy the fantastic lake views from inside. It is ideal for a romantic getaway or just a quiet, peaceful escape (sorry, no four-legged guests). This home is 4.5 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 5 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 16.5 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Upper level has kitchen, living room, bath, and a cozy built in queen size bed. Lower level features a second bedroom with queen size bed, washer/dryer closet and another bathroom.

The boat house and 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.

Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Great location! It was a nice, quiet little house on the river. Perfect size for me and my husband.


Conveniently Located

Basswood Bungalow 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. For additional information and activities, see our Local Area Guide.
