Weekdays 12:00PM-3:00PM

Fan of the movie Dirty Dancing? Then you MUST know about Lake Lure. I still haven't been (it's on my bucket list) but this is only a short car drive that you can kick your heels up to! There are water activities, great food, shopping and more. If you want to stay in the area, the historic Lake Lure Inn (1927) is quite charming. 

What better way to cool off during these hot summer days than at the lake?

North Carolina is full of great lakes to visit. We hear the most about Lake Norman or Lake Wiley around here because they are so close, but my personal favorite lake in North Carolina is Lake Lure.

I had never even heard of Lake Lure before the pandemic. During the pandemic, I started dating my now boyfriend, and he was living up at Lake Lure with his family. We’ve been together 2 years now, and I’m obsessed with going up to Lake Lure!

I was surprised the other day when I saw it on the news. If you’ve been there, you know there’s usually not a whole lot of stuff going on. Lake Lure was in the news because of a viral TikTok video.

The video showed a house on the lake that had a MASSIVE waterslide.

Turns out, this house is actually an Airbnb that you can rent. Now, I will warn you, it is not cheap but if you and your family/ friends want to ball out at Lake Lure, this is the house for you.

I have definitely seen this house while on the boat at Lake Lure, but had no idea the slide catapults you that far. I will admit, it does look very fun!
