The Bay Escape

Very Good


10 Sleeps
4 Bedrooms
1.5 Bathrooms

Banjoe Vacations invites you to The Bay Escape. Step out onto the screened porch overlooking the lake and you can almost hear yourself relaxing. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom getaway is situated on Tryon Bay, a sheltered cove on the south side of Lake Lure. There is a dock, and we provide kayaks. The house is within walking distance to The Lake House restaurant (the locals still know it as Larkin's), and the Ingles Market grocery store is less than a mile away.

Inside, the house is decked out for serious unwinding. There are four bedrooms, including one king-sized bed, two twin beds, and the bunk room that has a bunk bed and a full-sized bed. The remodeled kitchen has a gas range and a variety of pots and pans, with plenty of counter space for preparing your group meals. The full bath on the upper level has been recently remodeled with a large walk-in shower. Everything you will need during your stay is provided, including linens, paper products, soaps and shampoos. All you need to bring is your food, drinks, and a bathing suit**. All the bedrooms are located on the upper floor, leaving the open floor plan on the main level devoted to the important business of relaxation. Just outside the main door is the gas grill.

**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 SUPs will be put away. However - there are plenty of other fantastic activities in the Lake Lure and Chimney Rock area during the winter season!

Total access to the whole house and all of the porches/decks/docks you can handle! This house does require you to navigate a few staircases so it is not well suited to people with mobility issues.

The house is located in a quiet and rural area. You will be able to relax in this private setting.

We are located right in the middle of Tryon Bay Circle, a one-way road that meanders around the cove. We have room for three cars to park off of the road.

Our screened porch with the ceiling fan and outdoor TV is perfect for dining, playing games, napping, or listening to music (and it’s big enough for everyone). The outdoor fire pit by the water is a great spot for enjoying making S’mores and reconnecting. Be sure to head out to the dock for some incredible stargazing.

This was a super last minute trip for us and Bruce was amazing! The home is convenient to the local Ingles and lake front restaurant. Plenty of room for our family of 6. We loved waking up and fishing off the dock. Would definitely stay here again!

A few things we loved: being so close to a grocery store (we went often), the beautiful setting, kayaks available to use, family friendly house! The access to the water and life jackets, noodles, lily pad, etc. was amazing. A few things to note: the rooms are all close together and the doors have gaps at the bottom, so if you’re a light sleeper, be sure to use the sound machines. And don’t forget to bring keurig or nespresso pods.

Great home in a quiet neighborhood. Being on the lake was so nice. The kids swam for hours and it was fun to have kayaks. Loved the porch. The house was fully equipped and so comfortable.

we had a great time at Bruce's place for a guys annual weekend. the house had everything we needed and included many more things in the house than you might with a typical rental i.e. pots, pans, towels, etc. the cove is very peaceful and quiet with a shallow(ish) depth right off of the dock. probably 4 feet or so deep. perfect for most adults to stand in and talk. would highly recommend and will likely visit again in the future.
