Lake Lure
 
 
 

Lake Lure covers 720 acres in the Hickory Nut Gorge, a valley in the Blue Ride Mountains in Western North Carolina. Lake Lure has gained fame as the location of the 1980s hit "Dirty Dancing" and the 2006 HGTV Dream Home. Boat tours of the lake are given and include lunch cruises, dinner cruises, and evening champagne cruises. The vacation tours can also be rented out for private groups. Lake Lure Marina offers boat rentals ranging from kayaks to pontoon boats. For these interesting in fishing, Lake Lure vacation rentals provide access to plenty of rainbow trout, brown trout, catfish, and bluegill, among others. There is also a beach with water park style attractions and lifeguards. An admission fee is charged for entrance to the beach. There is a grassy picnic area near the beach which can be used for small picnics or large gatherings. Nearby attractions include a number of golf courses, river rafting, riding stables, bicycle tours, and the Biltmore Estate, the largest private home in the country.

Southeast of Asheville, North Carolina, in an unassuming portion of the state lies a true gem of natural wonder. Lake Lure has 21 miles of shoreline and unusually comfortable weather due to its location in the Thermal Belt of North Carolina. The Beach of Lake Lure is filled with clean, relaxing sand and is perfect for you and your loved ones to catch some rays. Go horseback riding through the surrounding scenic mountains through Cedar Creek Stables. One activity that simply cannot be missed is a trek up to Chimney Rock Park where you can look out of many miles of the lake and surrounding area simply breathtaking, it must be seen to be believed. Additionally, bring your fishing equipment since Lake Lure is specifically known for rainbow trout, brown trout, large mouth bass, crappie, catfish and bluegill (certain licenses may be required). Before you plan anything else, go through our listings of Lake Lure vacation rental houses to find one that's perfect for you. Vacation rentals can be cheaper and more luxurious than expensive chain-hotels. Start planning today!
