Located in picturesque Lake Lure, North Carolina, the Inn was first opened to guests in 1927. The Grand Lobby and hallways exhibit original antiques, furnishings and srtwork. The Lake Lure Inn and Spa has expanded to include inviting gardens, wedding locations, restaurants, and an elegant spa. Designed with leisure in mind, the nostalgic atmosphere of Inn is apparent the moment you enter its historic foyer.
In 2005, the Inn enjoyed a full restoration to its historic splendor, and now features an outstanding collection of period art and antiques, duplicating the aesthetic experiences grand hotels of the 1920's provided. The Inn offers gracious accommodations and a choice of guest rooms, suites and bungalows. Many rooms feature our signature beds, restored tiles and nickeled fixtures from the original baths. All rooms have satellite TV, and telephone.
