Twelve Mile Escape

Lake Lure, NC 28746

Twelve Mile Escape is perfect for those traveling by motorcycle. Located in the gated covered bridge community of Twelve Mile Post, this tastefully decorated home is situated on a mostly wooded two-acre lot and is just minutes from Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and Rutherfordton. It is also near the curvy and scenic Alt-US 74 Memorial Highway. Drive that through Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, Gerton, Fairview, toward Asheville to pick up what many consider the most beautiful length of road in this country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you have not traveled this stretch of road, it is something to add to your bucket list. Actor Norman Reedus of The Boondock Saints and The Walking Dead fame, featured the parkway on a 2016 episode of his AMC TV series Ride with Norman (Appalachia: Blue Ridge Parkway, Season 1 Episode 3). Just 1.25 hours from the home and five miles off the parkway is Maggie Valley, home to Wheels Through Time. This transportation museum is a must-see for motorcycle/auto enthusiasts or history buffs, featuring rare American motorcycles, memorabilia, and a distinct array of unique one-off American automobiles. Deal's Gap and the Tail of the Dragon are a 3-hour ride from the home. On this drive, you will be traveling through small towns with unique restaurants, shopping, and more.
