“Peaceful, Quiet Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Just came home from a 1 night stay at the Lodge and I'll give everyone a play by play! I was excited to do this because we truly had a lovely time. It's very secluded, so expect to travel on some winding mountain roads. The whole area of Lake Lure almost actually has an alurring sense about it. Pardon the pun. Everything seems a little mystical from the gentle haze covering the mountain tops, to the lake way of life that you witness while driving along side the water and view the water-front homes. For some, you can tell they have vacation homes, for others it seems like a daily living spot. The houses along the water are so unique and interesting. Ok so back to the LODGE! We stayed in room 2 (half and half) and it was perfectly adorned and comfortable. The shower was delightful because of the Thymes toiletries that I personally love. There is no tub in this bathroom. The remote to the TV has a non-functioning channel up/down button but that was the ONLY thing I noticed that needs some attention. The balcony was delightful with a 75% view of the lake and stairs that lead down into the garden. Bring your walking shoes. We did not dine for dinner, but we did dine for breakfast. The self-serve complimentary breaksfast bar had homemade biscuits (delish!), toast, cereal etc. and juice. We also had the option of ordering french toast or eggs benedict. All complimentary and QUITE delicious. The french toast was amazing - made with cinnamon bread. The staff are all very friendly and accomodating. Be prepared for there to not be a refrigerator in your room, nor for there to be free beverages. However, there is free coffee and tea so that is great. Just bring some bottled water of your own, or some soft drinks and ask for ice if you need it. All in all, the Lodge is supremely kept and a wonderful visit.

We went to Chimney Rock in late April 2011. We stayed at The Lodge on Lake Lure overnight. It is a beautiful bed and breakfast. Our room was one of the less expensive rooms at the lodge and it was still fantastic. We had a balcony that overlooked the lake and plenty of privacy. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice with a large jacuzzi tub and separate enclosed shower. The lodge itself is wonderful. We had complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine in the lodge in the afternoon with some of the other guests. There was coffee and pastries out for the guests around the clock. Breakfast was wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed our specially prepared omelets along with pastries, fruit, coffee and juice for breakfast the next morning in the lodge with a gorgeous view of the lake. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We left the next morning and went to Biltmore House. We really enjoyed everything about our stay at The Lodge on Lake Lure.

Room Tip: We had an end room on the 2nd level.

We've wanted to stay at the Lodge on Lake Lure for several years and finally made the time for a visit - at the peak of foliage season! There's not much to add to all the previous reviews - it's a great spot. We had room overlooking lake and it was super comfortable. Service was great. Breakfast is terrific, with buffet of self serve baked items and fruit - and you also get a hot cooked-to-order entree. Common areas are super comfortable. We interacted with Andrew, Billy, and breakfast staff - all were great! This will be a regular get away spot for us!

We don't normally stay at Bed and Breakfasts but found the Lodge on the internet when looking for somewhere to go for our anniversary. Everything was just as depicted on the website and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff were friendly and helpful, but not bothersome. The rooms were well appointed, clean, and had great views. Although there are things to do in the area, the Lodge itself is quiet and peaceful and perfect for a get away from a busy life. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding and definitely gourmet (not your typical complimentary breakfast) and if you choose to have dinner at the Lodge on Friday or Saturday, you will not be disappointed - it was excellent. We will be back just as soon as our schedules allow.

Room Tip: We were in room 12. I believe it is one of the largest with a huge bath including a jacuzzi tub. I...

My husband and I recently kicked off a fall vacation with a few days at the LOLL. We found everything exactly as advertised on the Lodge website. The service was helpful when needed and otherwise unobtrusive. This was out first stay at the lodge and we didn't realize breakfast was available and complimentary until we got there. This is NC hospitality at its best.

Also, if you stay here and happen to be a barbeque fan, don't miss the Lake Lure Smokehouse. The boat tour around the lake is also fun for first time visitors.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 16 and found it to be comfortable (for two), clean and convenient to the main buil...

Excellent escape locale for those looking for a high-class yet casual and intimate inn. Although billed as a B & B, the Lodge on Lake Lure seems like a small boutique hotel. The breakfast is served at your private table in the dining room, the rooms are located along several halls, all with their own private deck and baths. Very plush linens! And, the view! Beautiful! Wonderful friendly staff as well.

Room Tip: The rooms on the end of the halls have gas fireplaces. Rooms on top floor are quieter and on the s...
