Description


Lake Front Cottage with Incredible Views. 4BR 3BA

You arrive by riding our electric tram (called a funicular) down to The Enchanted Cottage. As you ride down the track, you feel like you are leaving everything behind. Walk inside, step out onto the screened porch, and greet the beautiful Lake Lure! The Enchanted Cottage has arguably the most beautiful view on the lake, overlooking the main channel to the Rumbling Bald ridge across the lake.

The cottage comes with what you need for your vacation, including unlimited use of a pontoon boat, allowing you to explore the whole lake. Go looking for a rope swing, explore the coves, and catch the sunset on the lake. Back at the cottage, everything you need is provided - towels, paper products, soaps, and shampoos - everything. All you need to bring is some food, drinks, and a bathing suit.

Settle In

The Enchanted Cottage has three full baths and sleeps 12 comfortably via four bedrooms with queen-size beds, plus two twin beds with trundles (totaling four twins). Our large dining table seats 10, and nearby bar stools seat two more.

A few other details about the house itself:

All linens, towels, soap, and shampoo are provided. We have board games, puzzles, and foosball. There is a full kitchen with a coffee maker, microwave, crockpot just about everything you need. The cottage has central AC and heat, but you may end up not using the AC, as the cool breeze off the lake feels fantastic! Gas logs are there to up the cozy factor in the chillier months.

Get outside!

One of our visitors had this to say about the Enchanted Cottage: The house is nice but you honestly don't spend much time in it. The dock and porches are fantastic. The use of the boat is great for driving out to a cove and swimming or finding the rope swing.

We feel the same way!

Our large screened porch with two ceiling fans is perfect for rocking, dining, playing games, napping, or listening to music (and its big enough for everyone). The outdoor fire pit is a great spot for making Smores and telling tall tales. And be sure to head out to the top of the boathouse for some incredible star gazing!

Our pontoon boat is your ticket to enjoying all of Lake Lure: cruising the lake, fishing (permit required), and boating out to some of the lake's restaurants, like The LakeHouse. Our guests love having unlimited use of the boat, especially since pontoon boats rent for $600/day on the lake! Please note that the boat is generally in the water from April to November.

summer escape

Awesome location on the lake with spectacular views. Plenty of space for the kids to hang out downstairs while adults relax on the screened in porch. Kitchen is small but has everything you need, and we took advantage of the grill available.The host was very responsive and helpful, and the boat was great to have. I would highly recommend. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay all week because it was already booked!!!

Guys Getaway

Had a great trip. Cottage is a great blend of old school lake cabin with modern touches. You feel like you are all alone but yet have Ingles and restaurants within 10 min drive. Great views from the decks and outside living areas. Boat is nice and well maintained.

Slice of Heaven

Our family cannot say enough wonderful things about our time at Lake Lure and The Enchanted Cottage!! From the welcome music and a bottle of wine to the amazing mountain and lake views, everything was spectacular! The VRBO description and pictures are spot on, and it’s the perfect place to get away from the real world and relax. We look forward to returning to The Enchanted Cottage!

Awesome!

What a great weekend. We had to move in the middle of the Coronavirus mess and I sent my kids and husband to the house for the weekend before the statewide lockdown. Bruce was incredibly responsive and accommodating and what a HUGE treat it was to have the boat! I can’t wait until I can join them on the next visit. Thank you, Bruce!

Slice of heaven on the lake

We had a wonderful experience at the enchanted cottage. Thanksgiving dinner was cooked and there was plenty of room for everyone in the kitchen and at the table. Property is well maintained and clean. The porches give you beautiful views and the boat dock is even better. The tram down to the cottage is a bonus for easy unloading and loading. Parking was a little tight but we made it work. We will definitely be reaching out again for our next stay. Possibly during boating season. Thanks for a wonderful experience!
