The home was equipped with everything you could imagine - it was a dream! We loved the firepit, the multiple grills. We can't wait to return.

    Rebecca R from Temple Terrace, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The property is beautiful, and the views of the lake were perfect. The spacious kitchen gave my "foodie" son lots of space to enjoy cooking. There were many spaces to gather, and we all loved the main floor deck for hanging out. With one family member wheelchair bound, we so appreciated his ease of access to the main floor and house entry and exit. Our "girl's movie night" was the best. Hope others will enjoy the space of this home, which gives you both gathering space and privacy.

      So glad you found your stay at Buffalo Shoals Lookout to be most positive! This home does offer a very well equipped/stocked kitchen, is conveniently located to area attractions and the game and home theater room make this rental a great choice no matter the weather! We hope you will visit again - the autumn colors are a stunning sight at this home . Buffalo Junction Properties

    Michelle T from Longwood, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The pictures do not do this house justice because with the natural light it was even more beautiful than you can see in the pictures. The view of the lake and mountains was amazing. Our 20's aged children used the hot tub , theatre room and pool table every night. It has a lot of great spaces to be together and plenty of space to be alone. We were a party of 6 adults but there was plenty of room for two families to stay together. The kitchen had more than enough supplies for us to make dinner every night and we really enjoyed using the "egg" grill. We had great communication from the owner about all the details of our stay. We enjoyed going tubing, white water rafting and chimney rock. We would definitely stay there again for another week next summer.

    Each year 3 couples get together for a week someplace in the North Carolina mountains. This year we decided to be a bit lower but have a lake view. Buffalo Shoals fit the bill. Great house with a nice view from the decks out back of beautiful Lake Lure. Plenty of room in this house for our group. Spacious bedrooms,a fantastic game room, a home theater and a great kitchen for our amazing cooks! We did enjoy a couple restaurants for lunch located on Lake Lure.

Hot Tub, game room and movie room are excellent amenities for families. Weather it was rain or shine this house offered a nice place to have a relaxing weekend.

    Pictures do not do this house justice. It is beautifully appointed and has everything our family needed. From the well stocked kitchen to the multiple coffee makers to the theater room , game room, hot tub, privacy, comfortable beds and beautiful views this house has it all. Extremely clean and beautifully decorated! Sue and Steve were awesome. They answered questions before we could ask. The house is so well maintained we never needed them after check in. I did like the call Sue requested we make after check in. A perfect time to ask any questions and we were given an update on everything pertaining to the house.

    We had a wonderful vacation in this spacious, comfortable, and beautiful home. The views from the deck overlooked Lake Lure and all the spectacular fall foliage surrounding the house. We enjoyed the fire pit and had fun in the game room. The home theater is a true bonus. There’s plenty to do in the area from hiking to playing in the beautiful Morse Park with our grandson. We’d return in a second.

    We began our vacation with the arrival of strong thunderstorms and severe weather warnings; what an awesome home to be stuck indoors playing pool, enjoying ourselves in the saloon and catching up on some of our favorite movies in the Theater room! Once the weather broke and the sun came out the breathtaking views from the hot tub were second to none. The house and property were excellent and our every need was anticipated. We look forward to our next stay!

    My family had a wonderful stay in May at Buffalo Shoals Lookout. They had everything you could want and more... movie room, game room, hot tub, fire pit! And plenty of space for many guests. Large kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Lovely view of the lake and mountains from the deck. Close enough to a large grocery store and several restaurants to keep you well fed. Lots of lake activities, and hiking trails. I was even able to bring my mountain bike and try the steep trails at Buffalo Creek Park nearby. Asheville is about an hour away with lots of options for things to do as well.

    What an amazing stay I had, it was the perfect break I needed! The view of the lake was terrific and the house itself was stunning. If it wasn’t so beautiful outside at the fire pit I would have been in the game room or movie theater all week! The house was very well decorated and it fit exactly what I was looking for. Next time I’ll have to get in the hot tub more but overall I had a wonderful stay here

    Anna S recommends this vacation rental

    This house is beautiful inside and out. Every detail is impeccable, from the matching kitchen appliances to the decorations throughout, the house had absolutely everything we could need.

    We spent nights in the basement having pool, poker, and dart tournaments. Most nights also ended up with us in the hot tub, enjoying the stars and peacefulness of the mountains. It was huge and the jet settings were strong and adjustable. Highly recommend!

    One day we drove 25 minutes to Chimney Rock State Park and took the stairs to the top. We liked lunch at Burnt Shirt winery afterward. Try the mead.

    We're already dreaming about our next trip to Lake Lure and can't wait to stay at the house again!
