There is more attraction available than you can possible do in a weekends stay.  There is the adventurous side of hiking to zip lining to horseback riding and water skiing.  Then there is the leisure side of a stroll on the flowering bridge before dinner to wine tasting or beer tours. Then there are the things in between such as golfing, antique shopping, gem mining, a boat tour of the lake or spending a day reading at the beach.  That doesn’t even include all the thing to do in Historic downtown Hendersonville or Ashville another favorite that is a short drive away.

Meet the Owners

Rich and Kim Both went to the same college in 1989 at (PSC) Paul Smith’s College in upstate NY for this industry. Rich’s degree is in Culinary. He is a trained chef. Kim went for Hotel/Restaurant Management. They purchased the property December 2016. Many updates have been made to the Breakfast room, Covered Deck and the Sleeping Rooms since their purchase. They are enjoying themselves just a bit too much with this new chapter in life. Their wishes are for you to come visit the Lake Lure area and stay with them to decompress and rejuvenate with some beautiful mountain therapy.

“We were even served vegan pancakes made by Rich that were delicious before our hike to”
