A group of our pilot friends flew into this area for the 4th. One of the group members has a house on Lake Lure and recommended the Lodge. We were thrilled with our accomodations and the wonderful breakfasts we enjoyed each day. The Lodge sits on Lake Lure and our friend was able to pick us up each day by boat. Some of us stayed in the Lodge, which is older and more rustic (but still beautiful). We stayed in the lower building just next door. This building has 4 units and is a bit more modern. There are full wrap-around decks on the ground and upper floor, but you never feel like the adjacent guest is on top of you. The rooms are romantic and roomy. Bathrooms were super big (except the shower, which my husband complained didn't have a decent shelf to put your shampoo on. There is a gas-burning fireplace in the room, but the gas was turned off for the summer. Big, comfy beds, pillows and comforters. Really nice!
The main lodge breakfast room overlooked the lake with big picture windows. Each morning we were treated to semi-sit-down service, made to order omelets, fresh scones and coffee, tea, juices. The fresh fruit was served in a parfait glass on white table cloths.
This place is not cheap, especially on a holiday weekend. I believe the prices go down on non-holiday dates.
Take someone special for a romantic weekend. It's really worth it!!
PS: Although they said the entire lodge was wireless, our new IPAD would not work in our room or the breakfast room. Ditch the computer for the weekend!
