When you arrive in Lake Lure, it’s immediately obvious why this Western North Carolina mountain town has been a top Hollywood choice as a picturesque and captivating setting for motion pictures. Many don’t know Lake Lure NC was the backdrop for movie scenes from A Breed Apart, Firestarter, My Fellow Americans, and Thunder Road. The well known claims to fame are Last of the Mohicans partially filmed in Chimney Rock State Park, and the 1987 blockbuster Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray. For many years, people from around the globe have visited the famous Dirty Dancing locations of Johnny’s Cabin, the gym, and dining hall. Lake Lure proudly hosts the annual Dirty Dancing Festival.
Today, the enchanting Dirty Dancing site is preserved by a private luxury home community called Firefly Cove. The original 54 acre site has expanded to 110 acres, offering a mix of lakefront lots and parcels of higher elevation offering majestic mountain views. Both Firefly Cove and The Ridge at Firefly Cove are gated, and the lakefront section already has an assortment of new homes and condos.
