We loved our Christmas vacation at Sheldon’s Way!
My husband, daughter and I and my in-laws enjoyed a week long stay in Mill Spring and could not have loved it more. (Well only maybe if it snowed.) The house is better than the pictures show, the land/yard and neighborhood were lovely, and a fire in the fireplace every night topped it off. The house was fully stocked with all we would need (except groceries of course) and we loved the extras this property afforded. We could travel to what we wanted to do for the day within 30 minutes to an hour but the journey was everything - - amazing views through mountains and pathways to waterfalls and trail hikes. We would definitely come back - - summer or winter. Thanks to Carolina Properties for answering all of my e-mails timely and for providing a wonderful home away from home experience for our family this Christmas. Sheldon’s Way is a true gem.
The house was great!! The rooms upstairs still like dog pee. But over all it was a nice place
Great family getaway
Spacious home tucked away in the hills near Lake Lure, NC. The quiet at this family getaway is deafening. Surrounded by porches on 3 sides you find great places to enjoy morning coffee, the deer, hummingbirds and wildlife that surround you.
Valted ceiling family room, well equipped kitchen, and spacious bedrooms provide space for family meals, games, and personal quite time.
Nice but far from Lake Lure
Home was very comfortable and clean. The house feels relatively new and sits on a private lot. I agree with the previous review's issues. Also the home is at least 25 minutes from the property managers building (Carolina Properties) and 30 minutes from Lake Lure Beach. Some of the route is very curvy and can be difficult to follow at night.
Thank you for staying with us! We currently have 24 homes available and most are in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock with just a few a bit farther away. If you can visit our area again, please don't hesitate in contacting us and we will help you locate a property closer in to your desired area. Happy Travels :)
Comfortable, but with some issues
This is a very nice home, but with a few issues that potential guests should be aware of.
1) Little to no toilet paper is provided - you are asked to bring your own, so be prepared.
2) Garbage bags and paper towels are not provided. Again, you must bring your own.
3) Well pumps and hot water heaters are turned off when you arrive, so especially if you are renting for a horse show, be prepared for a 30 minute wait upon arrival for the water to heat up to take a shower.
4) There is no garbage pick up in the neighborhood, so you are asked to haul your own garbage to the dump.
5) Property management indicated that the home is 15 minutes to Tryon International Equestrian Center. It is closer to 25-30 minutes.
Other than these issues, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well stocked with utensils.
This home is 12.7 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC), 13 miles from the Beach at Lake Lure, and 14.3 miles from Chimney Rock State Park. The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock area is conveniently��situated for outdoor adventure including horseback riding, tubing, water sports, and hiking; museums and theater; the Biltmore Estate, Winery, and Village; shopping and restaurants; and so much more.
If you enjoy scenic drives, head out of Lake Lure on Alt-US 74 (Memorial Highway). This stretch of road has 14 hairpin turns and runs through the Hickory Nut Gorge communities of Chimney Rock Village, Bat Cave, and Gerton. Continue toward Asheville to pick up what many consider the most beautiful length of road in this country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you have not traveled any this of road, it is something to add to your bucket list.
