Welcome to Lure Woods

Lake Lure, North Carolina

Thirty-five years ago audiences were introduced to the majesty that is Lure Woods, an enchanted forest nestled in the foothills of North Carolina's Blue Ridge.

Considered sacred, since the time of the Cherokee, this magical place is the only spot in North America that connects the states of North Carolina, Virginia and New York.

Pictured: Emile Ardolino, Linda Gottlieb and Eleanor Bergstein. If the cliffs of Rumbling Bald Mountain were ever to receive the Mount Rushmore treatment, these three folks would be my pick.

Here we have the creative team behind the 1987 blockbuster 'Dirty Dancing.' If you need to move a mountain, these are the folks to do it.

Your constant invitation has arrived

$3 per person (double occupancy)The famous Patrick Swayze suite would set you back $6. The Lincoln 4cent stamp was issued from 1954 to 1961. In today's dollars, the room would fetch a little over $60, which is less than half the current rate.

The postcard reads: Lake Lure, one of the beauty spots of Western North Carolina. Lake Lure is located on US Highway No. 74 near the base of famed Chimney Rock and surrounded by towering forest-clad mountains. The lake is in the shape of a giant star-fish, 1,500 acres in extent and presenting a shore line of 30 miles and is the central feature of a giant highland resort of 8,500 acres. Lake Lure, as its name implies, lures with a charm that is infinite and extends a constant invitation to those seeking beauty and healthy recreation.
