Your guide to Lake Lure

All About Lake Lure

Nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge, Lake Lure is a charming small town with stunning mountain views and a crystal-clear lake from which it takes its name. It’s known in popular culture as a filming location for cult classics, but it’s hardly a touristy stop-over. Less than an hour southeast of Asheville, Lake Lure is one of western North Carolina’s top destinations for outdoor recreation, thanks to its long bays, vast stretches of water, and a beautiful backdrop of mountain scenery. From hiking to birding, summer fishing to winter skiing, the area draws visitors seeking to soak in the beauty of nature from a cozy lakefront home base.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lake Lure

Lake Lure is located in the Isothermal Belt, famous for its remarkably mild weather despite its location surrounded by mountains. Depending on the season, air may be warmer or cooler on the mountains than the base of the 2,200-foot valley. Summer temperatures peak in the upper 80s Fahrenheit with very little humidity, dropping to the low 60s in the evenings. Winter is cooler: Temperatures average around 50 degrees, dropping to just below freezing once the sun goes down. In spring and summer the mountains act as a kind of insulation, stretching the valley’s warmer periods, making for pleasant seasons year-round.


Top things to do in Lake Lure

Chimney Rock State Park

Bordering Lake Lure is this 8,000-acre state park with hiking trails to accommodate all levels. The park is named for the famous granite monolith towering 315 feet in the air — a must-see for any visitor. It’s accessible by elevator, and on clear days, it provides views of the park and surrounding area for miles around.

Lake Lure Beach and Water Park

Open Memorial Day through Labor Day, the privately owned Lake Lure Beach shoreline stretches 27 miles and features wide expanses of sand perfect for family-friendly play. There’s an admission fee, which includes the water park: its slides, splash pad, and water balloon zone are all big hits with kids on hot summer days.

Tryon and Hendersonville

These two small towns — each about a half-hour from Lake Lure — are unique in their history and culture, and worth checking out on a day trip. South of Lake Lure, Tryon has long been a retreat for writers and artists, as well as a world-renowned hub for equestrian competitions. Equidistant from Tryon and Lake Lure is the small city of Hendersonville, home to an aviation museum and a railroad museum as well as the 12-acre Bullington Gardens.
