Just came home from a 1 night stay at the Lodge and I'll give everyone a play by play! I was excited to do this because we truly had a lovely time. It's very secluded, so expect to travel on some winding mountain roads. The whole area of Lake Lure almost actually has an alurring sense about it. Pardon the pun. Everything seems a little mystical from the gentle haze covering the mountain tops, to the lake way of life that you witness while driving along side the water and view the water-front homes. For some, you can tell they have vacation homes, for others it seems like a daily living spot. The houses along the water are so unique and interesting. Ok so back to the LODGE! We stayed in room 2 (half and half) and it was perfectly adorned and comfortable. The shower was delightful because of the Thymes toiletries that I personally love. There is no tub in this bathroom. The remote to the TV has a non-functioning channel up/down button but that was the ONLY thing I noticed that needs some attention. The balcony was delightful with a 75% view of the lake and stairs that lead down into the garden. Bring your walking shoes. We did not dine for dinner, but we did dine for breakfast. The self-serve complimentary breaksfast bar had homemade biscuits (delish!), toast, cereal etc. and juice. We also had the option of ordering french toast or eggs benedict. All complimentary and QUITE delicious. The french toast was amazing - made with cinnamon bread. The staff are all very friendly and accomodating. Be prepared for there to not be a refrigerator in your room, nor for there to be free beverages. However, there is free coffee and tea so that is great. Just bring some bottled water of your own, or some soft drinks and ask for ice if you need it. All in all, the Lodge is supremely kept and a wonderful visit.
