Open concept living with beautiful stone fireplace and hardwood flooring on the main level with Large Master Suite with king bed. The lower level has super nice stained concrete flooring and 3 more bedrooms, one with a king bed and private bath, one with a queen bed, and one with a full and two twin-size beds.  This level also has a gathering area with a large stone fireplace and a large Hot Tub on the back patio. There is also a really cool swing and hammock on the back patio to relax and enjoy the views!

Super comfortable throughout to kick back and enjoy your time at Lake Adger.  This amazing home is 11.7 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, 11 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, and 7.5 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).

If you are feeling energetic and looking for a fun activity, this home offers two kayaks and a flat-bottom boat for your use near the water, which has a deep water boat dock. It takes a bit of energy getting back up to the house as it’s 124 steps but great exercise and lots of pretty views to stop, catch your breath and enjoy along the way.  We’ve heard the fishing is pretty great at Lake Adger!

Get your family and friends cooking in the gourmet kitchen, or go out on the large patio and grill under the stars. Relax on the deck and enjoy the sounds of nature and take in the incredible views.  This home is well equipped if traveling with little ones; there is a Pack N Play, basinet, safety gate at stairs, high chair, booster seat, and portable play yard.

In addition to all that Lake Adger offers, Lake Adger House is about 11 miles from the Lake Lure beach and Chimney Rock State Park and village. National Geographic Magazine ranked lake Lure as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. There are water sport rental options (kayaks, wakeboards, boats, etc.) and pontoon tours of the lake.

The iconic Chimney Rock, for which the village and State Park were named, was featured on Arthur Frommer`s Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Budget Travel magazine. The park received the platinum award for Favorite State Park in Blue Ridge Country’s 2013 Best of the Mountains travel poll, with voting every five years and covering seven southern states in the Appalachian Mountains. There are also several excellent golf courses nearby, including Apple Valley Golf Course, Bald Mountain Golf Course, and Etowah Valley Country Club and Golf Resort, which Golf Digest rated as one of the top 50 golf destinations in the US.

This home is located just 30 minutes from Bat Cave; 40 minutes from Hendersonville; 55 minutes from Asheville; and about 1.5 hours from Charlotte, North Carolina. Also nearby are Pisgah National Forest (less than 1 hour from Lake Lure), which has over 500,000 acres of protected forest, and DuPont State Recreational Forest (1.25 hours from Lake Lure) with over 10,000 acres. These forests feature hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, horse trails, exquisite waterfalls, and beautiful mountaintop views. If you and/or your children are fans of The Hunger Games book and movie, a scene with Katniss and Gale was shot at the Pisgah National Forest. A few small but significant scenes were also filmed at the DuPont State Recreational Forest.

The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock/Mill Spring area is conveniently situated for outdoor adventure, including horseback riding, tubing, water sports, hiking; museums and theater; the Biltmore Estate and Village, shopping and restaurants; and so much more.

Thistle Ridge is perfect for every season! Enjoy the beautiful snowy weather in the winter, where a cozy mountain home feels just right. Stay warm by the fireplace or relax in the jetted tub in the master bath. Visit in the summer when the weather is perfect all the time, and you can enjoy the soothing summer breezes and beautiful sunsets from the scenic porch overlook. No matter the season, this mountain home and the beautiful area will provide you a weekend getaway or vacation that you and your loved ones will never forget!

Just pack some clothes, pick up some groceries (shopping nearby), and then enjoy all Thistle Ridge offers. If you visit once, we are confident that you will return for the beauty, fun, comfort, and hospitality. We look forward to you being our guest.
