Lake Lure typifies the natural beauty of Western North Carolina real estateLocated in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge, Lake Lure, North Carolina encompasses all the beauty that Western North Carolina real estate offers.  Originally, a resort was built around the lake, utilizing the area’s natural beauty to “lure” people to the area.  Currently, the lake is now held in trust by the Town of Lake Lure as a benefit for its citizens.  Although no schools actually operate within Lake Lure city limits, students living here attend schools in the Polk and Rutherford County Schools Systems.  Outdoor recreation is key to the Lake Lure lifestyle, with the 720 acre lake providing the primary location for a day’s activities.  Residents enjoy full access to the marina seven days a week for free and everyone is encouraged to enjoy the boating, fishing and waterskiing the lake has to offer.  Horseback riding is a popular pasttime in Lake Lure as well as hiking and biking around Chimney Rock Park, which includes a nature center, picnic areas and a gorgeous waterfall.  One trip to Lake Lure and you’ll see what the “lure” is all about.  Please contact me with any questions you may have about the Lake Lure area.
