There currently is no water in the lake, but there is a creek that flows through continually as it is a naturally spring fed lake.
We offer 6 houses for rent year round for a relaxing family vacation getaway! (3 of them are PET FRIENDLY) Or if you feel a house is too large, we have eleven charming one-bedroom Cottage Rooms that surround our Main House, circa 1930 with nightly rentals from $85 per night. (Open April 1 - October 31)
Mountain Lake Inn has offered efficiency lakeside cottages for over 50 years. All our cottages are completely furnished for your comfort, including TV, microwave, linens, AC and heat. Enjoy our relaxed atmosphere with an evening BBQ, drop a fishing line, take out a canoe or kayak, or simply enjoy an evening stroll around the lake. (1.6 mile shore line) Our quaint cottages offer that easy mountain charm only minutes from downtown Hendersonville.
Our guests are welcome to use our canoes to enjoy the water for free. Life jackets are provided. Fishing is permitted with a NC license (click to purchase a North Carolina fishing license). If boating and fishing aren’t your desire, rise early in the morning and let the mist on the lake take your breath away, or find an unfrequented place to sit, read and enjoy the quiet. A fire pit available to enjoy at night and make smores.
Being only 2 miles from Main Street in historic Hendersonville, NC you will be able to take advantage of all this charming town has to offer.
