You arrive by riding our electric tram (called a funicular) down to The Enchanted Cottage. As you ride down the track, you feel like you are leaving everything behind. Walk inside, step out onto the screened porch, and greet the beautiful Lake Lure! The Enchanted Cottage has arguably the most beautiful view on the lake, overlooking the main channel to the Rumbling Bald ridge across the lake.

The cottage comes with what you need for your vacation, including unlimited use of a pontoon boat, allowing you to explore the whole lake. Go looking for a rope swing, explore the coves, and catch the sunset on the lake. Back at the cottage, everything you need is provided - towels, paper products, soaps, and shampoos - everything. All you need to bring is some food, drinks, and a bathing suit.

Settle In

The Enchanted Cottage has three full baths and sleeps 12 comfortably via four bedrooms with queen-size beds, plus two twin beds with trundles (totaling four twins). Our large dining table seats 10, and nearby bar stools seat two more.

A few other details about the house itself:

All linens, towels, soap, and shampoo are provided. We have board games, puzzles, and foosball. There is a full kitchen with a coffee maker, microwave, crockpot … just about everything you need. The cottage has central AC and heat, but you may end up not using the AC, as the cool breeze off the lake feels fantastic! Gas logs are there to up the cozy factor in the chillier months.

Get outside!

One of our visitors had this to say about the Enchanted Cottage: "The house is nice but you honestly don't spend much time in it. The dock and porches are fantastic. The use of the boat is great for driving out to a cove and swimming or finding the rope swing."

We feel the same way!

Our large screened porch with two ceiling fans is perfect for rocking, dining, playing games, napping, or listening to music (and it's big enough for everyone). The outdoor fire pit is a great spot for making S'mores and telling tall tales. And be sure to head out to the top of the boathouse for some incredible star gazing!

Our pontoon boat is your ticket to enjoying all of Lake Lure: cruising the lake, fishing (permit required), and boating out to some of the lake's restaurants, like The LakeHouse. Our guests love having unlimited use of the boat, especially since pontoon boats rent for $600/day on the lake! Please note that the boat is generally in the water from April to November.

***Note that this year the town of Lake Lure will be lowering the lake from November 1st until April 1st.

I am an entrepreneur with a wide range of interests. My professional background is in acoustics, but I'm also interested in lots more. I play the upright bass (not well...), love trail running, and hiking in the beautiful mountains here in Western North Carolina. We've named our company Banjoe Vacations, after all of our names. B is for Bruce, 'an' is for Anna, our youngest daughter. 'jo' is for my wife Jo, and 'e' is for my oldest daughter Erin. We offer lots of different vacation options, from a lakefront cottage suitable for the whole family to a small rent-able tear-drop trailer.
