Description

Stay in an authentic Revolutionary War Fort!!! Welcome to the totally renovated, historical Russell's Fort. Now located on White Oak Point! Situated directly on Lake Lure, experience the perfect combination of luxury and lake front log home charm. Surrounded by the majestic views of the lake and mountains, you'll be able to relax and create memories. This 3 story, original hand-hewn log fort has been disassembled and restored by the hit TV series Barnwood Builders, and placed on a peninsula on Lake Lure. The renovation of Russell's Fort that was built in 1775, involved updating the home with all the modern amenities and latest technology, but keeping all the original historical beauty. The main level consists of the kitchen, which is fully equipped and includes high-end, stainless-steel appliances, and a custom made breakfast table. The living room with cathedral ceilings and a large screen tv over the fireplace is the perfect place to gather. A large dining table with seating for up to 10 overlooks the lake through the French doors. Step out onto the deck for additional dining space with seating for 8 and take in the view of the lake and mountains. There is also a sitting room with reclining sofa chairs on the main floor that is perfect for reading while enjoying views of the lake. With four bedrooms and four and a half baths, there will be plenty of room for up to 10 guests. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. Three guest rooms are on the third level, the fourth is on the lower level with a huge queen size bunk bed. A second living room with a big screen tv is on the lower level along with a private deck and hot tub. You have private lake front access with outdoor toys to enjoy fun on the lake. Also available for rent for an additional fee is a pontoon boat. Book your stay today in this home that was a symbol of protection for our nation at the time of its inception and now stands watch on Lake Lure, a timeless icon of American freedom and North Carolina heritage.

Our Cleaning Fees are backed by our Clean Guarantee, which reflects the highest level of standards, pristine environments for our guests, and a level of clean that surpasses any other vacation homes; we literally guarantee it! Home Truth: - Lake Lure will be undergoing a drawdown starting January 1st, 2024 through the first quarter of 2024(March 31st). The lake will begin to be lowered by approximately 1 foot per day until 12 feet has been reached. Infrastructure maintenance, dredging, and dam projects will be expedited during this time frame. These efforts by the Town of Lake Lure may affect access to the lake and restrict any lake usage. The lake will likely be back up to normal levels by mid to late April. While we understand this is an inconvenience, this does allow you to enjoy the full beauty of Lake Lure in the fall and holiday season. Quiet Policy: Please note that the property is located in a very private community. Parties, loud noise and unruly behavior are absolutely prohibited, and guests are expected to respect the neighbors and the peace this mountain retreat area affords. Early Check In and/or Late Check Out may be possible, depending on cleaning schedules and other reservations. If it is possible, there may be an additional fee that would be determined based on the time that you wish to check in or out and the seasonal rates. PETS: Many of our guests have allergies so we have maintained a pet-free environment so they can enjoy their vacation without the potential of an allergic reaction. If you have a pet we can recommend some alternatives nearby. Please inquire for details regarding payment, the cancellation policy, military discounts, and trip insurance. ​​​​​​​Note: Reservations over 30 days are subject for review prior to acceptance. A separate rental agreement will be required for 90+ day stays.
