Q: Is there shopping in Lake Lure?
A: YES! Lake Lure has some great speciality shops. One of the charming aspects of Lake Lure is that it does not have any of the larger known chain stores. So please don’t expect to find a McDonald’s on every corner. And as a matter of fact, the closest McDonald’s is around 20 minutes away. It is what makes Lake Lure such a relaxing vacation destination!

Q: Do you allow pets?
A: Yes! Sadie’s Retreat is named after our beloved Golden Retriever Sadie. We have travelled with Sadie and know it is not always easy to find some place to stay when you are travelling with pets, especially large breed dogs. So we accept all pets at Sadie’s Retreat. We do ask that you pick up after your pet, do not allow your pet on the furniture, and treat Sadie’s Retreat as you would your own home. We do not charge a pet fee or pet deposit. Please understand that if your pet happens to cause damage, we will need to use the security deposit to fix any issues.

Q: Do you allow kids?
A: Yes! Sadie’s Retreat is family friendly, as is Lake Lure.
