Riverbend Community Info & Amenities


Riverbend at Lake Lure

Riverbend at Lake Lure is a prime Vacation and Retirement area. We are located in the Isothermal Belt of Western North Carolina, thus we benefit from the lack of extreme heat of summer and severe cold of winter. With excellent proximity to Asheville, Hendersonville, Charlotte, Spartanburg, and Greenville, we are ideally located for day trip adventures.

The homes listed inside Riverbend are all on packed gravel roads. The homes outside Riverbend are all paved roads. None of our homes require 4 x 4 vehicles to access.
