Jackie has a well stocked home!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for me. I stayed 10 weeks as I started a new job and looked for our permanent home in the Asheville area! Thanks for everything, Jackie Vale is a wonderful hostess and her properties are well cared for!

Great cottage in a terrific Black Mountain location

  • 5 of 5

Lulu's is a very attractive and extremely well-equipped one bedroom cottage and the landlady (Jackie Vale) is quick to respond to any request while remaining unobtrusive otherwise. We stayed there for the entire summer (4.5 months) and could not be happier! The location is great as well, just off lovely Lake Tomahawk Park and a few blocks from central Black Mountain village with its many excellent shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.

About the only negative is that the unvented gas fireplace cannot be used for more than 20-30 minutes without roasting the occupants. Cannot be used simply for enjoyment unless it is very cold outside. Great for quickly taking the chill off the house in the morning, though!

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay and liked having a good kitchen and roomy LR. Great landlord and response when needed. Across from the town park and lake which expanded the outdoor space by walking across the street. My own preference is Central AC during hot times rather than a window unit, but I opened the wall of doors to the porch when it was cool, which was nice. Otherwise, really liked this cute place a lot.

Great Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at LuLu's Cottage over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful vacation. Our family (myself, husband, three year old, and five year old) chose this home due to its close proximity to Lake Tomahawk park as well as the downtown area of Black Mountain. The home was very clean and in a quiet area. We hardly used the fireplace because the outdoor temperatures were above normal but it would definitely be a nice addition to the HVAC on a very cold day. The bedroom is separated by French doors from the living room (that contains a sleeper sofa). There is a small deck located off of the kitchen that is nice to sit on and enjoy the mountain air.

We would suggest this home to anyone and hope to visit again in the future.

Lake Lure is a well-known destination for thousands of visitors each year from around this country, Canada, and abroad. The Town of Lake Lure is a beautiful place to visit and a wonderful place to live; it 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. The Rocky Broad River winds its way through a series of rapids down through Hickory Nut Gorge, and the crystal clear water flows through the valley that feeds Lake Lure. The Town of Lake Lure encompasses 13.25 square miles including the lake with a large central body of deep water, three long bays, an island of seven acres and many small bays and inlets with a background of forest clad hills and mountains. The climate is unusually temperate as Lake Lure lies in the “thermal belt” of the western North Carolina mountains and foothills.

The lake is the number one attraction and the reason so many families visit Lake Lure year after year. 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.

History records that the idea of a resort community in western North Carolina was the vision of Dr. Lucius B. Morse. Soliciting the financial backing of his brothers, Dr. Morse purchased 400 acres around Chimney Rock in 1902 to create Chimney Rock Park. Additional acreage was acquired over the next several years to bring the total to 8,000 acres. Dr. Morse conceived the idea of building a dam on the Rocky Broad River to create a lake and a year-round resort. The dam was completed in September 1926, forming the lake which was named Lake Lure by Dr. Morse’s wife, Elizabeth Parkenson. 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 pleasure boating and water skiing. Both motor and non-motorized boats enjoy the lake; however, a lake permit is required to place a private boat on the lake.

Linville Caverns

Located in WNC near Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns are worth the visit. Deep beneath Humpback Mountain, nature has sculpted a veritable masterpiece in stone.

The cavern was discovered in the 1800's by men intrigued by the mystery of fish swimming out of the mountain. Since then, extensive research has been done to acknowledge the history, folklore, geology and biology of Linville Caverns. The mystery is still alive.
