Large Lakefront Vacation Rental with Decks and Boat Dock on Lake Lure

With some of the most beautiful long-range views of Lake Lure and the surrounding mountains, Lured In On Holmes Lake House promises a fantastic mountain lake vacation for large families or groups of friends. So gather the whole gang and come experience one of the most charming houses on the lake. Located slightly off the main channel in a large, deep water cove, Lured In on Holmes Lake House is perfect for swimming, fishing, or exploring the big water by kayak.

Decorated with a refined, lake cabin theme combined with shabby chic style, this warm and inviting lake house has many cozy and unexpected nooks and crannies so that everyone can find their favorite spot for some alone time to relax or read a book, then come together with the whole family in one of the spacious living areas. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal, and all 6 bedrooms have high-end mattresses and luxury linens, as one would expect in a home of this caliber. Awake to breath-taking views in the top floor, private master suite, fondly nicknamed “the nest” by the owners.

Conveniently located within minutes of Chimney Rock State Park,  the Tryon International Equestrian Center, unlimited hiking trails, zip lining, fly fishing and downtown Chimney Rock Village, with its award winning restaurants and shopping, Lured In allows you to fill your days with outdoor activities, or claim your spot on the stone terrace, or on the bed swing on the screen porch, and do absolutely nothing.

On cooler fall days or during the winter holidays, cozying up in front of the large wood burning fireplace on the main level and looking out over the lake is about as good as it gets.  On warmer days, sitting down on the private beach, on the deck atop the boathouse or out on the dock just listening to the water lap up against the shore is equally magical.  (The private beach is especially a hit for parents with small children who aren't quite ready to swim.)

Shopping and dining in Chimney Rock Village are only 3 miles away, and lakeside dining options are within 2 miles in either direction. For those up for venturing out on a day trip, the options abound.  Asheville and the Biltmore Estate is 45 minutes away, Hendersonville and the Flat Rock Playhouse are 30 minutes away and Greenville and Spartanburg are both just an hour away.  For those who enjoy antiquing in more quaint towns, Tryon, Saluda and Landrum are all within 30 minutes and have charming downtowns.  This lakefront home is only 17 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center where you can enjoy watching or participating in equestrian competitions.
