Our famiy works and lives in the Charleston area of SC. Spending a lot of time in coastal areas , we were attracted to the change in scenery in the mountains of Western, NC. In the summer of 2008 I stood outside under the balcony at the Lake Lure Inn, sipping my coffee and admiring the beauty of Lake Lure. Later that afternoon while walking along the Lake with our two small children, my wife and I began to talk about the adventure of building a log cabin in this peaceful place. The next weekend we returned to Lake Lure and began the process of looking at property. After two years of hard work Laurelwood Lodge was finished. We built Laurelwood to be a place where families could gather, socialize, unplug and enjoy nature. We love to hear the wonderful stories that our guests tell us about there time spent here. It's great to know that Laurelwood is part of the wonderful memories that so many families have experienced in Lake Lure.
