As a long-time reader of your articles and columns, I am pleased to share a real find. My husband and I found the 11-room The Lodge on Lake Lure in the mountains of western North Carolina. We were captivated by the scenery, the lovely country B&B; lodge and the warm hospitality of the owner hosts, Alan and Doris Kunn. It is a special place. The Lodge on Lake Lure, Route 1, Box 529A, Lake Lure, N.C. 29746, phone (704) 625-2789; $50 double.
After reading Jerry Hulse's article about Idyll's Untour of Switzerland for several years, we went in 1985. We can't say enough good things about our trip.
