Owners and their staff are friendly, professional and went the extra mile to be helpful to us. The room was very clean and comfortable. Shower water pressure was great. View from our balcony was beautiful. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Carter Lodge is conveniently located between Lake Lure and Hickory Nut Falls at the base of Chimney Rock. Will definitely be staying here again.
Wife and I spent a long weekend in the Lake Lure/Chimney Rick area and stayed at the Carter Lodge. Location was the best. Look up at Chimney Rock State Park - look down and watch the Broad River. Grounds were well groomed and flowers beautiful. Outdoor games are there If you need them. Hotel is on the older side - but kudos for the cleanliness and comfort provided. Also, pretty strict rules given COVID days - which we appreciate. WiFi is almost nonexistent (we were in a room farthest from office). Don’t let that bother you - enjoy what you have been given from nature. We had a lower level room. I don’t know if upper floor is better or not. I think if we return - we would select another lower level room since they would be quieter than upper (road level).
Our early September visit to the Lake Lure, Chimney Rock area included a three day stay at the Carter Lodge in room #3. We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations and overall experience staying here. The location for this area is outstanding. It was for us, the best combination of a beautiful view of the Broad River and Chimney Rock right from our room and also close to the restaurants, shopping and also Lake Lure. Yes, this is an older motel type accommodation, but everything on the entire property is in such good taste and so meticulously maintained that it added to the ambiance of staying here. To top it all off, the owner’s pleasant manner and willingness to share his local knowledge led us to excellent choices in dining and general recreation opportunities. Upon return to this area, I would not even consider staying at another accommodation.…
We stayed at The Carter Lodge based on reviews and location. The Carter Lodge is very clean and well-maintained. The Lodge overlooks the Broad River and is within walking distance of Chimney Rock shops and some restaurants. The room is small, but not confining. The view from the room was great - we could clearly see Chimney Rock with the river below. Check-in was easy, the room was comfortable and we were able to do a lot of sightseeing due to the convenient location. We stayed on the street level, which provides a balcony out back. We did rest one afternoon in the room, and I could hear the traffic. But Chimney Rock/Lake Lure shuts down early (8-9 pm) so once the traffic leaves the area, it's very peaceful. The lawn behind the lodge is well-manicured with chairs and a swing to relax. Parking is a bit tough - plenty of spaces but close to the road, so backing in and out can be a challenge depending on the time of year you visit. Minor inconvenience for a overall good stay. It is a great place for a weekend trip - clean, comfortable, convenient.…
1ded. Very clean...Linda was very kind to me. I love the grounds. I was able to sit in the yard with the tiki torches lit and read a book. Short walk to the beautiful river Thank you for allowing me to rent a room from you. I will be back.
