Incredible Deal - 3BR/2Bath Lakefront Home w/Resort Amenities

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 7 Sleeps

At MIXON'S LAKE RETREAT, relaxing will come easy! This great, 3-story LAKEFRONT HOME on Bald Mountain Lake sits inside the gates of Rumbling Bald Resort, and comes with full access to all resort amenities (listed below).

This home's unique style is a reminder of vintage memories of years gone by, when life at the lake was much simpler and time moved at a slower pace. It blends a bit of nostalgia with modern conveniences such as wireless internet, fully-equipped kitchen with all new appliances, TV with DVD/VCR, washer/dryer, iron/board, and hair dryer.

Enjoy your morning coffee or that evening glass of wine, from either the upper or lower deck, while taking in the stunning views of the lake and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.

In addition to the living room/dining area & kitchen, the main level of the home features the master bedroom w/queen bed & full bath with tub & shower. Upstairs you'll find two guest bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full & 1 twin sleeper sofa) and a 2nd full bath with tub and shower.

The lower level is the entertainment room, with air hockey, a game table, flat screen television, a great sitting area, and...a large selection of board games.

Use the private boat to explore Bald Mountain Lake for the perfect fishing hole, or just soak up some sun and enjoy the beauty of mountain lake living!

Mixon's Lake Lure Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Nothing fancy but perfect for a week-long golf retreat. This is our second stay at Mixon's and we will likely return next year. The cottage is spacious and clean. The TV and Wifi work well. There is a new large capacity clothes washer. The beds are comfortable. It would be nice to provide more than one roll of toilet paper and one pack of dishwasher soap even if the charge were increased a few dollars. But, there is an Ingles store in Lake Lure which is well stocked with anything you may need. The view of the small lake is an added plus.

Very dated.

Internet and TV didn't work well. Limited channels also. Steps going done to front door were not level and need to be straitened up. This house has a lot of potential. Beautiful lake.

Mixon Place

The instructions for the lockbox location were incorrect and the combination for the lockbox code was incorrect; however was easily remedied with a phone call. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. It's a nice, quiet getaway.

Wonderful, relaxing in the mountain scenery in this peaceful lake setting

  • 4 of 5

Overall great experience. Not ideal if you have an aversion to stairs. Spiral to the basement game room is narrow and steep and the steps to the dock are many. However, the home was clean and spacious with a very home like feel. Great for an extended family group or couples.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from July 27-30 & had a blast! The house was clean and very roomy! I wouldn't recommend parking in the gravel driveway, as it looks as if you could easily get stuck ( unless you have a four wheel drive) We went to the beach within the resort instead of using the dock thats located at the house on private lake.

thanks for sharing your home with us!! We will be back!

Excellent location for our golf trip.

  • 4 of 5

I travel with a group or men every spring. With three bedrooms, this location was perfect for our group of three men. We were grateful that the property had wifi. The kitchen, bedrooms and central dining and living areas were more than adequate. The setting is peaceful and quiet.

There is a dock with a rowboat which we did not use but did fish there. Some of the decking and outside stairs have been replaced but many need repair urgently. I believe the owners are in the process of doing this.

While we were very happy with the property and location, we were put off by some small surprising issues including the fact that the owners supplied only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom and never allow a check in earlier than 4 PM or a late check out after 10 AM even if the unit is not rented the next day.

The air conditioning and heating worked well. This is a rustic property as you would expect and not the location for those looking for a gourmet kitchen with updated appliances. All the basics were there and in good working order.

We will try to rent again next year.
