Grafton Lodge is nestled in the Western North Carolina mountains in the town of Lake Lure.   The lodge is here to offer you the perfect location for your time away from the hustle and bustle of urban life.

We are a Bed & Breakfast Lodge. This property is a 1 cottage (a private full kitchen, livingroom, bedroom, bathroom) and 6 bedrooms (Private bedroom, bathroom and sitting area). There is private access to each and everyone of the rooms. Many rooms either have a private terrace or a private deck. We also have 2 large Shared Decks for you to enjoy.  The first is a Covered Deck with a real wood burning fireplace and the other deck is on the second floor and is great spot for star gazing.  A Full American Breakfast for 2 is created by Chef Rich and is included with each night of stay.  We also offer Romantic add-on's to help make it a special stay.  Explore our pages to discover all that we have to offer.   And... as with all technology the are always glitches.  Here are several other ways to reach us if the link on this page doesn't work

Meet the Owner

Rich and Kim 
The husband and wife team both went to the same college in 1989 at (PSC) Paul Smith’s College in upstate NY for the Hospitality Industry.  Rich’s degree is in Culinary. He is a trained chef. Kim went for Hotel/Restaurant Management. They purchased the property December 2016. Many updates have been made to the Breakfast room, Covered Deck and the Sleeping Rooms since their purchase. They are truly enjoying themselves just a bit too much with this new chapter in life. Their wishes are for you to come visit the Lake Lure area and stay with them to decompress and rejuvenate with some beautiful mountain therapy.

Guest Review

Kim and Rich were the most excellent hosts. The private rooms with bathroom were very cute and comfortable. Rich’s Breakfast in the morning was phenomenal. Communication was quick easy and non intrusive. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Thanks again Kim and Rich!

Came up for the Spartan Race. I accidentally booked the wrong dates at the lodge. Kim shifted things around and got my fiancé and I squared away! Lodge is beautiful, owners are wonderful. Due to the race we had to be up early and Kim made sure we had coffee/ food available. Rich’s breakfast was great! Look forward to staying there again.

We were at Lake Lure several weeks ago for a wedding. Kim and Rich were such wonderful hosts! They accommodated our needs, made a wonderful breakfast each day, and ensured our stay was excellent. We would love to come back!

My wife and I enjoyed this bed and breakfast for our first visit to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. We loved the owners warm and friendly approach. We were made a fresh pumpkin spiced waffle with fresh fruit and coffee for our breakfast the next morning. Rich and Kimberly were great hosts and we will definitely go back again. They were very knowledgeable for first time visitors for things to do in the local area. Five stars plus for this business!!

Kim and Rich are excellent hosts! We stayed for three days and really felt at home in the cottage. With local restaurants and amazing hikes nearby, this little getaway was perfect. Also, the breakfast included small touches that really made it special. We can't wait to visit again!
