Chimney Rock State Park

Chimney Rock State Park is a 6.5 mile drive from the cabin. This is a "must see" if you have never been. Be sure to walk the Hickory Nut Trail, which will lead you to the 404 foot waterfall that is in the final scenes of the Last of the Mohicans movie. There are plenty of trails to get in a nice workout; hike Exclamation Point to reach the highest peak on Chimney Rock. You can download the trail map from their website if you like to plan ahead. They also have an educational trail for children: The Great Woodland Adventure Trail. This is over a half of a mile long, with 12 different stops to educate children of the different animals in the park. At the end of the trail, they can visit the Animal Discovery Den to learn about the reptiles and amphibians in the area. You can purchase tickets to the park in advance, or in person. Check out their website for any discounts, or to see if you qualify for the Family 1-Day Pass. The park has two retail gift shops where guests can purchase local goods and souvenirs.

Lake Lure Flowering Bridge

The Flowering Bridge is a 12 minute drive from A Touch of Luxury Cabin in Mill Spring/Lake Lure. It is located in the same area as Morse Park, the Lake Lure Welcome Center, the Lake Lure Tour Boat rides, and the Beach at Lake Lure. This is the perfect free activity if you arrive in the area early, and are waiting to check into the cabin. Or maybe you have an extra half hour before your tour boat departs. The bridge crosses the Rocky Broad River and links Lake Lure to Chimney Rock Village. It was initially completed in 1925, and was used by vehicles up until 2011. A new bridge was built to replace it, and the original bridge was given to the Town of Lake Lure. Community volunteers turned it into the beauty it is today, and volunteers continue to maintain it.

Lake Lure Flowering Bridge
Officially dedicated Oct. 19, 2013, the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge blooms on the historic 1925 Rocky Broad River bridge in Lake Lure, NC. When the bridge was closed to traffic in 2011, the Friends of the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge came together to create gardens on the 155 feet of the bridge and along a pathway at both ends of the three-arch span itself.
