Breathtaking Splendor
There is a saying that automatically brings this home to mind: Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. The splendor of this landscape is boundless and breathtaking! This property offers over 10 acres to wander and relax..

Guests have called the views therapeutic. This is a retreat you will not want to leave. When you do, it is one you and your family (four-legged family members welcome) will long to return to again and again, no matter the season. 7.2 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 8 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 13.8  miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

Whether it is to get away for a long weekend  or relaxing vacation , just step inside Morning Glory Lodge and you will feel your stress melt away. The wall of windows, stone fireplace, and wood walls and floors of the great room give an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Just imagine enjoying a gorgeous sunset while relaxing in front of a blazing fire. Dine indoors or in the mountain air on stone patio (gas grill) with a fire pit to keep you warm. This is also a perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea.

With All the Comforts of Home
With three spacious bedrooms, and three (3) full baths, there is ample room for six (6) guests. The fully equipped kitchen has a dishwasher, refrigerator, range, microwave, coffee maker, and a variety of small appliances. In the lower level there is a full size washer/dryer.

The members with whom we spoke were very helpful and very professional. The rental process was simple and straightforward. The property was exactly as advertised.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Morning Glory Lodge and will consider another visit in the future. The property was very nice and well-maintained. It was secluded enough to provide the privacy we wanted, but close to resources and places of interest. Renters should be advised that there is very little soundproofing in the lodge.

Ashley was very helpful and informative with me over the phone before we arrived . I had several questions and she answered them all correctly and professionally. We had an excellent experience with Carolina Properties.
Morning Glory Lodge suited our needs. All three bedrooms have their own bathrooms. All the linens and towels and kitchen ware of are high quality. We enjoyed playing pool. I do think the hot tub could use to be drained, cleaned , and have the chemicals adjusted. I have owned a hot tub for many years and this is something that really needs to be maintained even for a family, so one used for a rental house really must need constant care. I didn't use the hot tub for this reason. Otherwise things were perfect.

Conveniently Located
Morning Glory 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 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. 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.

If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (curvy and scenic Memorial Highway) through Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, Gerton, Fairview, 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 even a stretch of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.

This 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 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.
