"The Turtle House" is a charming lakefront cottage with beautiful mountain and sunset views on Lake Lure. 2 bedroom 2 bath with central H&AC. Linens provided, full kitchen, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, CATV and VCR, fireplace telephones, charcoal BBQ, picnic table, canoe and paddle boat with large deck on boathouse. Take a few steps from the back porch towards the lake and you will be lured to the 12 stone stairs leading down to the deck on top of the boathouse complete with dining area, lounging chairs and some of the best views on Lake Lure. Downstairs from the boathouse deck is the dock where you will find a 2 person kayak and a pedal boat for getting around the lake. 5 universal fit life vests are in storage on the boathouse deck though please note: access to the inside of boathouse is locked as it contains our maintenance supplies (plus maybe an opportunistic otter or two). The Turtle House is located on the east side of the lake on a large quiet, cove with a no wake zone (not far off the main channel), so that swimming, kayaking and paddling are safe and fun. We are now a Certified Wildlife Habitat, an idea inspired by the turtles who occasionally come to visit our 'back yard'. For our guests who are interested in fishing, rather than fish off the dock we invite you to take one of our boats out onto the lake to enjoy the views while fishing from there. No smoking and no pets please.
