We had a two night 40th Anniversary getaway weekend at the Lodge at Lake Lure, as a gift from our daughters. As our youngest daughter was engaged there earlier this year, it came highly recommended. Our room, the Barnwood, was excellent; we found champagne, cheese and fruit to greet us. It had a nice deck overlooking the lake, so we... More

Wife and I had a very good stay here but there were spots in the lobby/sitting area that needed a good dusting. In addition, the appetizers put out during social hour should have place cards highlighting what they are, especially if they contain meat. Overall, very good but just some minor attention to a few details.

This was our second trip to The Lodge on Lake Lure. This time was to celebrate our 46th wedding Anniversary and would not have wanted to stay anywhere else but this lovely B & B. The staff was very gracious and helpful during our 4 day stay. Our room (the fortune cookie) had a private covered deck, and outstanding views... More

The trip here was a surprise from my husband and he did great. The views of the lake are great and the breakfast was wonderful--Carolina French toast--WOW. We stayed in the Mellow Yellow room which had a large bathroom and a fireplace. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and service oriented. We will be back.

We actually found a one night special on Expedia and turned it into a three night, four day stay. The breakfast was wonderful. The afternoon wine was splendid and the evening sweets were tantalizing. The room was first class, the bathroom amenities were great and the bed was awesome! The private balcony topped of the evening for a glass of... More

Very noisy, could here people walking on the floor over us, no microwave, no coffee until 8:00, shower was broken, no fresh towels. The ice bucket had mold with old water in it. The table next to the bed was full of dust. I have traveled all over the world and when you pay $300.00 plus a night I expect... More

We stayed at the lodge for 4 nights. The accommodations are first rate and the decor gives you the feeling and comfort of a true mountain lodge. Many rooms have a private balcony and overlook Lake Lure. The room was well appointed and exceptionally clean. We had dinner at the lodge's Tree Top Restaurant and the service and food were... More

We stayed in this inn years ago, it changed owners and was shut down for a long time for renovations, so we strayed away. Tried it again this year and were quite pleased. Staff friendly and professional. Room was clean and well furnished. It was a bit noisy because of a vent in the hall but this was no major... More
