“Fabulous fun on a pristine lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

Lake Lure is a stunning man-made deep water lake with clear blue-green water and a lovely shoreline with many inlets to explore. Lake Lure Adventure Company offers the boating gear you need to take advantage of this beautiful environment. We rented a pontoon boat that could hold as many as ten people. We only had five but we were able to take our two dogs with us -- no problem. Navigating the lake was a breeze and the pontoon was very easy to "drive." It is a nice stable boat that makes for an enjoyable, peaceful ride. The guy who helped us was extremely accommodating and friendly -- a pleasure to work with.

The only reason this is not rated "excellent" is that you have to walk down a set of steep steps to reach the dock. It's not a problem for most, but it could be a little challenging for the very young and the very old. Keep this in mind.

If approaching Lake Lure Adventure Company from Chimney Rock, go completely past the main part of Lake Lure. You will think you are driving way past the lake, but keep going until you get to 64/74 and see the Point of View restaurant on the right. The parking for Lake Lure Adventure Company is right across from the restaurant on the left -- look for the sign.

A good time was had by all!
