Ledfords Landing is a picturesque lakefront retreat in a private setting. This 2600 sq foot lakefront home is spread over two floors. Upper and lower decks boast of views across the lake to Chimney Rock. The main level has a large great room with ample seating that surrounds a lovely brick fireplace. The kitchen/dining area is spacious and opens into the great room. The upper level has 4 bedrooms - 3 of which have a sliding glass door that opens onto a common covered balcony facing the lakefront. The master bedroom on the lakefront has a king bed and its own full bath. The other three upstairs bedrooms share a full bath in the hallway. All of the bedrooms are roomy and comfortable. The two lakeside bedrooms have queen beds. The fourth bedroom has two twins. For additional sleeping space there is a 5th bedroom with a queen bed that is located just off the kitchen. There is also a full bath with shower downstairs, which is also accessible from the outside, great for a quick rinse off after swimming. The large covered porch/deck located off the great room provides a great spot to read a book or enjoy the lovely views of the lake and mountains.
If it’s a water experience you are interested in, there are only 20 steps from the house deck to the lakefront over-sized dock with shaded area and ceiling fan. Whether canoeing, kayaking, swimming or just floating aimlessly in the cool emerald water, you’ll be at ease as we are situated in a quiet “no wake” cove. (We provide 2 sea otter kayaks and canoe for your use.) No matter how you spend your day, you’ll want to be on the 'rooftop deck' over the boathouse in the evening. The water changes from cool green to brilliant gold as the sun sinks over the mountain. At Ledfords Landing, you have a beautiful view directly across the lake to the mountains.
PONTOON BOAT AVAILABLE:
We have a 1999 Voyager 21' pontoon boat available at your option to rent with our home. It has a 90 hp 4 stroke engine. The pontoon rental is as follows:
Weekly $1195 plus sales tax
3 - 5 days rental is $195/day plus tax and $50 check in/check out fee
OFFSEASON rates are with taxes and fees included:

It is a great way to get see the lake and surrounding area; go for a sunset cruise, go to Bayfront Grille by boat for lunch or dinner.
In 2006, Lake Lure has passed a regulation that makes it unlawful for boats with commercial licenses (i.e.our boat) to tow skiers or tubes, etc behind the boat.**************
There are several (14) acres adjacent to the house that are perfect for playing baseball or Frisbee, picnicking, or star gazing at night. It was on this property that several scenes from the movie Firestarter were filmed.
Please note that our home is family friendly. We welcome you to use some items we've kept for your convenience - portable crib/high chair/booster seat. Also an ample supply of toys, books and videos. The porch has locking gates to help keep little ones safe and let you relax.
We love animals, but for the comfort of all our guests, we do not allow pets.

Over Labor Day weekend my husband and I enjoyed another wonderful stay at Papa Bob's. This is our very favorite place to stay on the lake, from the superb sunsets, to the fun paddle boat, and perfectly calm cove. See my previous review for a longer description, but needless to say, we will be back! We would buy this cabin if we could!
Top Notch Host
We had an excellent time at Ledford�s Landing. The house is clean and beautiful and the location on the lake can�t be beat. We didn�t have the best weather unfortunately but Tom and Jenny worked with us to get some extra time with sunny weather on our last day. They were extremely accommodating and we really couldn�t have asked for more. We highly recommend staying with them and we will do so again in the future.
Wonderfull house in an outstanding location
We (9 of us) spent Thanksgiving week at Ledfords Landing. House was great, plenty of room to spread out and have different activities going on. Couple of items that stuck out to me. Location, was quiet in a cove. The views were awesome looking out over lake, the trees were all kinds of fall colors. Kids enjoyed playing football in the field, foosball and table tennis inside. Weather was a bit cold for us Floridians but boathouse deck would be great in summer. House was clean and as described. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to be on a great spot on lake. We had a spectacular time. Thanks
Perfect location, perfect house layout, perfect vacation!
Our family vacation at Ledford's Landing was wonderful! The layout of the house was perfect for our family with an open floor plan downstairs and nice sized bedrooms. The house is located at the very end of Sunset Cove.The location on the lake was perfect with a view the mountains, Chimney Rock and a beautiful sunset every night from the deck on the top of the dock house. We enjoyed the lower dock for swimming and relaxing in the sun or shade. One the perks of Ledford's Landing is the additional outdoor space. We played corn hole in the long driveway and spike ball and bocci ball in the field at the end of the cove. We were glad that we decided to rent the pontoon boat. We enjoyed a few sunsets from the middle of the lake from the boat as well. Tom and Jenny Cox were very helpful and easy to reach to answer questions prior to our arrival. We highly recommend Ledford's Landing at Lake Lure!
Love this Place
This place was exactly what we were looking for; clean, private, great views, and right on the lake.
The downstairs is wide open making it possible for several things going on at once: ping pong, foosball, cards, conversation...all in one big room. Candlelight sunset dinners were great on the deck over the lake with plenty of room at the table for everyone. We usually cooked in pairs, and the kitchen was a great size for that; no bumping into one another. The bedroom situation was perfect with 4 upstairs and 1 downstairs with one being a master with a big shower! Two other bathrooms with showers as well. Never had to wait on each other.
We definitely want to come back next year. This is a perfect place to stay.
Best view ever!
We have stayed at Ledfords Landing several times and it is always a wonderful time. The home is clean and comfortable! Everyone had a blast on the kayaks/canoe. Plenty of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the view. The sunsets are simply spectular!! Can't wait until next time.
4th year at Ledford's Landing
This was the fourth fall we've rented Ledford's Landing for our group of five couples. Ledford's Landing never disappoints. This time we rented the pontoon boat and cruised the lake.... so relaxing. L.L. has everything we need.... plenty of room to spread out, an updated kitchen, fireplace, and lots of outdoor living space. We kayaked and canoed, and sat on the deck and enjoyed the lake and mountain view. You will not be disappointed with this property.
