Lake Lure is a town whose namesake is at its core. This beautiful body of water was formed by damming the Rocky Broad River in 1927. The result is a 720-acre lake with a 27-mile shoreline surrounded by some of the most dramatic topography in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Lake Lure is a seasonal town (read: the best of both worlds) comprised predominantly of young professionals and retirees. Year-round residents enjoy the quiet – and relatively short – off-season with their 1200 neighbors. During the vacation season, population jumps ten-fold to 12,000, when the lake and local ice cream shops are brimming with young families and the whole town is buzzing with summertime bliss.
But vacation in this part of the county is not tied to the school bell alone. Leaf season is an extravagant burst of optical indulgence and crisp, mild weather that draws tourists from all over the country.
As for entertainment in the area – where to begin? The entire perimeter of the lake is incorporated into the town, which means that the city’s residents and municipality take personal responsibility for the quality and safety of the lake. This is evidenced by its pristine clarity, ideal for swimming, skiing, fishing, boating, kayaking, or floating with a daiquiri in hand.
The non-bathing suit days are spent on one of the local golf courses, horseback riding, visiting the many wine vineyards, or hiking the trails at one of the local parks, including North Carolina’s famous Chimney Rock.
Lake Lure was the film site for many movies including Last of the Mohicans, Dirty Dancing, and My Fellow Americans.
Homes for sale in Lake Lure are nearly all luxury commodities due to their spectacular views. A markedly popular real estate option is a custom-built A-frame ideal for massive windows of the lakefront vista. Stilted multi-story houses melt into the mountainside, their stature mirroring the grandeur of their natural surroundings. Even country-style homes tucked into the woods still maintain a great view and are in high demand.
