Dockside Dreams 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 16.2 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) - 2018 location of the World Equestrian Games (WEG).

Upper level has kitchen/dining area, living room with wood burning stove, large flat screen TV, queen size sleeper sofa. Lower level features two bedrooms, one with queen size bed, and other with full/double size.  There is a bathroom between the rooms and washer/dryer closet.  This level also features a nice sitting area with lots of windows and access to the decks.

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.

The communications were awesome. I received several email and text reminders of my upcoming stay all of which covered the expectations of the owners and myself. Wonderful home that was very clean. The lake view was beautiful.
My wife and I would definitely come back to this property in Lake Lure. We had a wonderful time exploring the area. We really enjoyed the views of the lake and the cleanliness of the house. Its a great place to relax and reconnect with family.

We had limited interaction, but the phone conversation was pleasant and the email / text updates were efficient and helpful.
Big picture - the house was perfect for what we were looking for. This is a great property for a family of 3 or 4 with small kids. A couple of little things would really go a long way in improving the stay for guests - a toaster, an actual chef's knife, and a full size cutting board would really make the kitchen experience better. It should also be noted clearly on the listing that there is limited parking and that the stairs / ramps from the parking to the house (as well as from the house to the dock) are substantial. These weren't major issues for our family, but I noticed that multiple people in other mentioned it - having stayed there, I think these are fair things for the owner or prop manager to mention up front. Other than that, the house was clean and well laid out for smaller groups.

The agent that help us was very knowledgeable and very quick to respond to any questions I had. My husband and I were impressed with how quickly the agent got back to us with any questions we had. The emails came through so quickly with our receipts and the itinerary.
The property was lovely. We thought the property was lovely.It was very clean when we arrived. There are a couple of recommendations though. The skylight leaked, we did notify someone. It created a lot of noise, with twigs, and rain falling down onto it. I had to turn the tv up very loud to drain out the sounds. The walkway and steps need outdoor skid covers. I know you can't control the weather but it rained very hard and my husband slipped.

Made last minute reservations very easy. They were able to accommodate our last minute decision.
We enjoyed our stay very much. I love Lake Lure at any time. Plan to be back soon. I did leave something under the sofa cushion that I will stop by to get on my next trip. Thanks for holding. Kind regards Kenneth and Faye Wilson

Conveniently Located
Dockside Dreams 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 lovely cottage 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.
