The Chalet Club's recreation facilities offer members a wealth of options. Because the Water Sports venues are so  numerous, they have a page of their own. 

Your exclusive use of these facilities creates a more relaxed enjoyment of your recreation time. 

Trails to overlooks,  Tennis, Platform Tennis, Swimming Pools, Horseshoes, Shuffleboard, and recreation houses with Ping Pong and Billiard tables are all on the property for you to enjoy.

While we do maintain a supply of the equipment required to participate in these activities (except mountain bikes), we encourage you to bring your own if possible.

The Isothermal EffectTrail to Pools7.jpg (63555 bytes)

 

One important element to factor into your plans is the unusually mild year 'round climate that we enjoy at Lake Lure. When there is an extreme change in topography - such as there is here with the slopes of 4000 ft. mountains abruptly dropping to the foothills elevation of 1000 ft., there is an extreme change in the weather conditions or an isotherm. Fortunately that extreme is a moderating effect that gives us winter temperatures 10 to 15 degrees warmer than our neighbors. As a result Spring usually comes three weeks earlier and Fall lasts three weeks later than other mountain communities. Did someone say Shangri -La?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hiking

Over Look16.jpg (51133 bytes)

 

The private portal to seven miles of spectacular wilderness hiking is just outside the Chalet's front door. The path can lead you from the 1500 ft. elevation at the Chalet to overlooks near the 2300 ft. summit of Pool Creek Mountain .

Mother Nature has created an incredible backdrop for your adventure in the wilderness with mountain laurel, rhododendron, and one of the most lush forests in the southeast.

These trails were hand dug by four generations of the Washburn Family and are now part of the new Chimney Rock State Park.

 

 

 

 

 

Tennis and Platform Tennistennis1.jpg (36690 bytes)

 

 

Two Plexicushion tennis courts are nestled into the mountainside on separate sites to give players the uncommon experience of playing without distraction from another match. The cushioned hard court surface gives a truer, slow bounce and is easier on your feet and legs. A lighted aluminum platform tennis court is adjacent to the regulation sized courts. With its skid resistant finish, it is a great year 'round recreation venue.

 

 

 

Basketball, Shuffleboard and Horseshoes

Basketball goals are on the upper tennis court and by the upper wood shed. The shuffleboard court is on the north side of the Main Building and the horseshoe court is below the tennis complex.
