    Our family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful property over New Years. We were provided with everything we needed to cook, and feel comfortable. The fireplaces, indoor and outside, and the Hot Tub further enhanced our stay and enjoyment. The management team was very responsive and helpful when needed. If the opportunity presents itself, we will do it again!

    Our Lake Lure Christmas vacation was amazing! The home had a wonderful view, and room to spread out! My only complaint was not enough bedrooms for a family of 10. Great location, and close to grocery stores and restaurants.

    We were part of four couples that rented a house in Mallard Cove on Lake Lure for a week. House was amazing with great features and lots of room. Also had a huge area for parking. The location can't be beat. We made use of the kayaks, paddle boards, and pontoon boat. Enjoyed every day. Buffalo Junctions was very easy to work with and help make sure our vacation went off without a hitch.

    This house was amazing! Very clean and the location was great! It was very close to Ingles...which made it very convenient. I was there with a group of ladies and we had the best time. The house had everything we needed and more. The boat deck and large porch area seemed to be where we spent most of our time. The beautiful outside stone fireplace was very nice. The agents, Steve and Sue Gage, were super nice and very helpful. They were always available to answer any questions we had. I would most definitely rent again. Trust me when I say...you won't be disappointed in renting this one.

    Jonathan G from Irvine, NA recommends this vacation rental

    Even though we went the weekend of Hurricane Ian, we generally escaped the wind and rain that came with that and had a good time.

    The house was clean, very well equipped and we enjoyed the use of the hot tub and pool table.

    It is close to the supermarket, several restaurants and all the Lake Lure attractions.

    Back to Hurricane Ian. The town lowered the lake 3 feet in anticipation of a lot of rain that didn't come. As a result, we couldn't use the pontoon boat which was a big disappointment. However, the agents gave us a rebate which they didn't have to do, which was good karma for them.

    We will be back.

    This place was perfect! The location is ideal; private and secluded. Having access to the kayaks, sup and pontoon boat was spectacular! The home was very clean, kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils, etc.... Make sure you bring your groceries so you can cook all your meals. You will not want to leave the property. Hope to return someday SOON! ❤️

    Our family had a wonderful week in this lovely house. Lots of places to visit with the numerous young children with us; lots of room for the multi-generational group. Lots of fun in the lake. There is often a beautiful sunset from the middle of Lake Lure, or we lucked out on sunsets! Would recommend this home.

    Rachael M from Lawrenceburg , Indiana recommends this vacation rental

    This property had EVERYTHING we could have possibly wanted. We had a hard time leaving to even go exploring the beautiful surroundings. The kitchen is so well stocked with anything dish, cookware, and appliance you could think of! The house was so spacious that you could be by yourself or with the group and feel so comfortable. The teenagers want to go back next year!!! (So do the adults) the property managers were so friendly and helpful. We got email updates leading up to our stay that evening included recommendations of things to do in the area!

      Thank you Rachael for your 5 star review of Mallard Cove! We so appreciate hearing that your stay was a positive experience and we look forward to your return next year. Buffalo Junction Properties

    Theresa E from Fayetteville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    Private Cove on Lake Lure was an amazing place to stay! The home was built with a lot of detail and comfort. We have two grown children and their spouses and one grandchild and we all had plenty of space. The hot tub, the pontoon boat, the paddle boards, the KITCHEN! All of it made for a wonderful family getaway. Friendly note: If anyone stays in the master suite and do not like the morning light, bring an eyemask. All other rooms have blinds.

    • Manager Responded on 6/17/2022

      Hi Theresa - great to hear all had a wonderful family vacation at Mallard Cove! This amazing lake home is truly perfect for larger family gatherings and we are glad it was a positive experience for all. Buffalo Junction Properties
