Lake Lure Land Real Estate in Rutherfordton, NC

Rutherford County, North Carolina rests along the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge mountains.

Gentle rolling hills, a long growing season, lush, quiet, abundant wildlife, comfortable climate....there are many ways to describe this unique location. Where the dogwood trees bloom for three or four days in much of the south, we enjoy about three weeks of the same flowers, as an example. The beautiful terrain of Rutherford County, the elevation changes, the landmarks like Chimney Rock and the Hickory Nut Gorge, and Lake Lure all contribute to our enjoyment and pride. We'd love to have you visit, and stay a while.


Rutherford County is located in western North Carolina, on the eastern slopes and foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. We are between Asheville (a 45 minute drive) and Charlotte (an hour and a half drive). North and south are accessed by using U.S. Highway 221, and east and west routes utilize U.S. Highways 64, 74, and 74A.
Interstate 40 is just north of the county, Interstate 26 just west, and Interstate 85 just south. See the map page here.

  The southern border of the county is the state line between North and South Carolina. The bordering counties are: to the east Cleveland County, to the north (from east to west) is Burke, McDowell and Buncombe counties, and to the west is Polk and Henderson counties.
  Rutherford County covers 566 square miles of mostly rolling hills, with mountains in the west, north, northwest and northeast area. You’ll find many rivers, creeks, and streams throughout the county. Most notably are the Rocky Broad River, filling up Lake Lure, the Broad River which exits the lake, and the Second Broad river in the eastern half of Rutherford County. There are many large, named creeks. The lowest elevation is located in the southeast part of the county at 806 feet above sea level. The highest point is Sugar Loaf Mountain in the northwest area, with an elevation of 3,967 feet above sea level.
  Rutherfordton is the county seat with approximately 4,100 residents. Adjacent are the towns of Spindale, another 4,000 people, and the more commercial Forest City, with a population of 7,500. Together, the three towns are identified as the tri-city area. To the northwest is Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, together about 1,200 residents. South is Cliffside, Caroleen, Harris, and Henrietta, east is Ellenboro, and just northeast of Forest City is Bostic. Including the rural addresses in-between these towns, the total county population is a little over 63,000.
  Did we mention we are in a rural area of western North Carolina? Our total county population is less than the town of Asheville, North Carolina, but we like it that way.
