Tree Tops Dining Room at the Lodge on Lake Lure

The only accommodations perched on the banks of this spectacular mountain-ringed lake, The Lodge on Lake Lure offers the perfect spot to dine – literally among the treetops under a canopy of leafy shade.  The lodge’s Tree Tops Dining Room, located on the main entrance level of the inn, offers sweeping, panoramic views of the lake and surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. With both indoor seating as well as outdoor al fresco dining on the veranda, Tree Tops Dining Room features a relaxed ambience set amidst breathtaking natural beauty. Adjoining the lodge’s bar as well as its spacious Great Room, the restaurant over-sized windows are screened, allowing diners to enjoy the cool mountain breezes on summer nights. In cooler weather, the Great Room’s roaring fireplace creates a warm, inviting gathering spot after dinner. Furnishings in the restaurant are clean and minimalist in design, focusing attention on the richness of beautiful hardwoods and native stone. Table lamps flicker during a romantic dinner for two, or cozy corner tables provide a group of friends with a convivial and comfortable dining spot.
