The Queen of the Lake
Lake Lure Vacation Home

It’s time you had “the time of your life.” Donated by Mr. and Mrs. William W. Owens, this beautiful 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is located on majestic Lake Lure, where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed in 1987. The comfortable furniture and large great room will entice you to grab a book and settle in, but you'll still be attracted to the wonderful scenery of Rutherford County and nearby Chimney Rock State Park.

Three of the bedrooms are on the main floor. The master suite has a queen sized bed and the other two each have sets of twin beds and share the second upstairs bath-with a new marble shower. Downstairs is another queen bed with en-suite bath, plus a hide-a-bed that sleeps two. (All bed and bath linens are included.)

You'll enjoy numerous spots for sunbathing and swimming plus other outdoor activities and nearby tourist sites. Otherwise you can cozy up and read or watch your favorite TV or DVDs, and there’s enough space that one part of your group won’t interrupt the others. Also included are two paddleboards and two kayaks.
