Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath waterfront on Lake Lure

Our home is a 3 bedroom/3 bath water front home located in Garner Cove just a stone's throw from Larkin's Restaurant on Lake Lure. It is a quiet and private cove, great for swimming, and it's only 3 miles from downtown Lake Lure and Chimney Rock! The residence offers a beautifully open floor plan with all the comforts of home. The spacious Master bedroom has a king size bed. The second and third bedrooms have queen beds. There are 2 twin beds in the basement recreation room, suitable for children. Any of the three decks provide a wonderful spot for a morning cup of coffee or a lazy day of sunning. Gas and charcoal grills are located on the main deck for guests to enjoy a cookout - Ingles grocery is only a mile away! The water, just off the deck of the double slip boathouse, is shallow enough for the children to play, swim, and fish. There are boat rentals available in the area. A two seat kayak, a single kayak and a long board are available at the home for guests to enjoy, as well as lots of floats and life jackets. The basement provides hours of entertainment with a ping pong table, tv, and blue-ray player and a selection of movies. This home is Wi-Fi equipped so guests can catch up on emails or even get a little work done while on vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped and all linens and towels are provided. The beautiful vaulted wooden ceilings and skylights give the home a very open, airy feeling. Our home is located just 5 minutes from all the sight seeing, shopping and fun activities of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. We are also a short and very scenic 35 minute drive to Asheville, NC. Come stay with us, we know you will want to come again!

About Karen Cabaniss

We live in nearby Shelby, NC. We purchased this home in 1999 so that we would have a special place to build family memories. We immediately fell in love with the home and with the area. We especially like the privacy of this particular home, and the small town feel of Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. It's as if time has had no effect on this quaint little area.

Beautiful and quiet waterfront location on Lake Lure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this wonderful home on Lake Lure. The owner was very friendly and responded quickly to any questions we had. The house is conveniently located to the grocery store and in a quiet cove perfect for swimming and fishing. The house was clean and had plenty of activities including a fire pit and ping-pong. My only recommendation for improvement was the deck over the boathouse could be cleaned as the recent rain left it dirty. Overall we had a great stay at this property and would recommend it to anyone looking for waterfront on Lake Lure

Owner's Response: Thank you, Craig. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home. Thank you for bringing to my attention the need for cleaning on the boathouse deck. The deck has since been cleaned and has made lounging by the lake even more enjoyable. We hope to have you and your family rent with us again! Karen

The Ladies of Garner Cove

  • 5 of 5

The owner once again had the house ready and clean. Being our 3rd year, it is funny how the little things we forget are there when we return. We prepare all our meals there and the kitchen is well stocked and we just bring food. Each year she has done another upgrade. The new railings and checked wire on the boat house deck is a real nice touch. We enjoyed the water toys so much. Our trip was a 3 women annual getaway and our third year here. It was all as it should be except for a little more rain than we would have liked. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Relaxing week on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (kids are age 23-28)enjoyed a week at Karen's place at Lake Lure. We had a wonderful time going on hikes and enjoying the lake every day. The boat deck was a perfect way to relax. We read books on the chairs on the deck, swam off the dock, used the paddle board, and floated in the water with the inflatables provided. We even rented a pontoon boat one day and explored the whole lake. We loved the suggestions of restaurants she provided. We even enjoyed a night cooking out on the grill. Asheville was an easy 45 minute drive from the house so we ventured in for a few meals and activities there as well. The amenities in the house were perfect. Enough sleeping area as well as kitchen and laundry capabilities made for comfortable living. This was a great spot to enjoy a relaxing family vacation! Thanks to Karen!

Great location, very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and exactly as described. We have 2 small children who especially enjoyed the gradual sandy beach! Karen was available to answer questions quickly if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Everything you need to enjoy a stay on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4-night stay here! I can't say enough nice things about the property, from location to amenities! My husband and I traveled with our two teenage girls, and there was plenty of space for everyone as well as plenty to do. We took advantage of the grill, made s'mores by the firepit, and everyone enjoyed the canoe, kayak, and paddleboard. Garner Cove is a great spot on the lake for swimming as it's a large no-wake zone. Being able to walk in from the small beach is a plus. The area is quiet and so peaceful. We had one day of rain, but there is plenty to do inside, including a ping-pong table (and the included wi-fi is a plus with teens, haha) - plus, you're minutes from Chimney Rock Village and the shops and restaurants there. We took two trips into Asheville, which is only about a 40 minute drive away. We took a ghost tour in downtown Asheville and visited Biltmore House, which were fun family activities (and Biltmore is running a special this summer where kids under 16 get in free!). We would definitely come back and stay here again! Karen is super friendly and responsive to messages. We had absolutely no trouble or issues during our stay. Thank you, Karen, for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Very clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in April and had a relaxing stay. The house was fabulous. My kids loved the basement with ping pong and darts. There was a lot of space for the four of us. Thank you
