Lake Lure Real Estate

    Lake Lure is a well-known vacation & resort destination for thousands of visitors each year from around the country.  The Town of Lake Lure is a beautiful place to visit and a wonderful place to call home or to enjoy as a second or vacation residence.  Lake Lure is the home of over 1,050 permanent residents.

    Located in western North Carolina, the town sits in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge, east of Asheville approx. 35 minutes. The Rocky Broad River winds its way through Hickory Nut Gorge and flows through the valley that feeds Lake Lure. The Town of Lake Lure encompasses 13.25 square miles including the lake.  The climate is unusually very mild as Lake Lure lies in the “iso-thermal belt” of the western North Carolina mountains and foothills which makes it a great place to purchase real estate for use now or in the future.  The lake is the number one attraction and the reason so many families visit Lake Lure year after year and also why so many people chose to buy a vacation home or “mountain getaway” cabin.  National Geographic has called Lake Lure one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. Visitors come to enjoy the 720 acres of lake, sparkling clean beach area, and the incredible Blue Ridge mountain range including Chimney Rock.  The Town of Lake Lure was incorporated in 1927.

    The Town of Lake Lure is a great location for sports including swimming, golfing, hiking or serious rock climbing. You can enjoy a wide variety of water activities, ranging from canoeing and fishing to leisure boating and water skiing.  Washburn Real Estate, Inc. is a leader in Lake Lure homes for sale, condos for sale, land for sale, vacation homes for sale, second homes for sale and New & Custom-built homes for sale on the lake.
