Mountain Lake Retreat

187 West Wilderness Road, Lake Lure, NC 28746

"Mountain Lake Retreat" is just for you if you are looking to escape to the beauty of nature. This beautiful craftsman-style home is located in Lake Lure Village Resort, a private, gated community that began as a children’s summer camp. This getaway is nestled between beautiful Lake Lure and Rumbling Bald Mountain, with over 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. It is perfect for all activity levels, from easy walking to rock rappelling. Plan to spend your nights watching deer, wild turkey, owls, and flying squirrels, but please do not feed the bears! A waterfall and several creeks are located within walking distance and there is also a hiking trail just past the home. Mountain Lake Retreat also offers Lake Lure access.
