Lake Lure

Lake Lure is a cathedral of mountain cliffs and our forefront is a rushing river and a serene lake. Here romance and charm converge with a storied history in a stunning setting. Relish in outdoor adventures, a hike in the woods, a thrilling mountain bike ride, a climb on a sheer rock face, a day on the water fishing, boating, or kayaking. A multitude of lodging, dining, and shopping options await you, all tied together with a big dose of genuine hospitality. Whether it’s climbing, paddling, water-skiing, or hiking, it’s little wonder that Lake Lure tops North Carolina destinations for multi-sport adventurers bathed in a setting of unrivaled scenic beauty at every turn.
