Bill’s Mountain at Lake Lure

Just east of Lake Lure is Bill’s Mountain, named for the creek that flows around it’s northern slope.  Not a tall mountain, it has the distinction of being the last mountain you see if you fly due south to the mountains of western Cuba. It is private, with the gated community of Vista at Bill’s Mountain being home to many glorious homes with amazing views of Lake Lure and the Hickory Nut Gorge.

It is  shown here on a foggy summer morning….

Near the base of the mountain, along Bill’s Creek, is the abandoned Lake Lure Vineyards.
