The Enchanted Cottage

Starting At $350 - $875 /- Night


Banjoe Vacations welcomes you to Lake Lure! Leave the world behind as you ride the funicular (electric tram) down to The Enchanted Cottage. The indoor living space will make you feel right at home, but the real magic happens when you step out onto the screened porch and greet the beautiful Lake Lure! Situated less than 15 feet from Lake Lure on the Main Channel, this classic lakefront house features mountain ranges so close you feel a part of them, porches on three levels (one screened), a fire pit, dock, kayaks, a canoe, and our pontoon boat. The Enchanted Cottage has arguably the best views on the lake, overlooking the main channel to the Rumbling Bald Ridge across the lake, and the filming spot of the infamous water lift scene from Dirty Dancing.

The Enchanted Cottage has four bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed, plus two twin beds in the downstairs rec room. All linens are provided, along with additional blankets for chilly nights.
There are three full bathrooms, equipped with towels, soaps, and shampoo.
Our large dining table seats 10, and nearby bar stools seat two more.
We have board games, puzzles, and a foosball table for rainy days and family time.
There is a full kitchen with a drip coffee maker, microwave, crockpot … just about everything you need.
The cottage has central AC and heat, but you may end up not using the AC, as the cool breeze off the lake feels fantastic!
A gas log fireplace is there to warm you up in the chillier months.
Our large, screened porch with two ceiling fans is perfect for rocking, dining, playing games, napping, or listening to music (and it's big enough for everyone).
The outdoor fire pit is a great spot for making S'mores and reconnecting.
Be sure to head out to the top of the boathouse for some incredible star gazing!

Our pontoon boat is your ticket to enjoying all of Lake Lure. Cruise the lake (license required, but we can help you get it quickly), catch some fish (permit required), and boat to some of the lake's restaurants. If you are interested in using our pontoon boat we do ask for $550 for unlimited use (most places on the lake rent them for over $800/day). The boat is typically available from April through the October**.

IMPORTANT NOTE - our funicular (tram) adds an incredible amount of convenience, but it is not always available. Power outages or maintenance issues sometimes mean the tram won't be available. Anyone staying with us needs to understand that climbing the stairs may be necessary. We do not offer refunds if the funicular is not available during your stay. It is a fun add-on, but not a necessity for a great vacation.

** Additional note about Lake Lure:
Lake Lure is a town-funded lake that practices sporadic drawdowns. The drawdown of Lake Lure this winter will be from November 1st 2023 to the end of March 2024.
Please be aware that if you book from Nov - April, depending on what the town decides, there could possibly be little to no water in the lake. During drawdowns, kayaks, the canoe, and SU Ps will be put away. However - there are plenty of other fantastic activities in the Lake Lure and Chimney Rock area during the winter season!
