My daughters and I just returned from Chimney Rock, and we loved the Carter Lodge. The room was clean and the property was well maintained. Joe and Linda went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a special one, and they gave us great advice for places to visit and where to eat. We cannot wait to return... More

My wife and I have been going to Chimney Rock for the past 15 years and we have developed a love for The Carter Lodge. The owners, Joe and Linda Carter are just like family to us and every year we visit, they welcome us with open arms. Every time we have stayed there, the rooms are clean and very... More

My son and I just spent two fun nights at The Carter Lodge! The owners are so nice and have put so much care and thought into the property. We loved playing checkers and corn hole right beside the river! There is also a great spot where you can play for hours in the river jumping from rock to rock.... More

Folks were very friendly here and the motel was peaceful. It was convenient to walk to places to eat. Nothing fancy but not bad either. The beds were rather hard, and unfortunately, ours squeaked loudly every time someone turned over. We also caught wafts of sulfur smells coming from the bathroom sink (well water?) We appreciated the tip to breakfast... More

The rooms are always very clean and comfy. I would like to see microwaves in the rooms, that would be nice, even though, we will be... More

This place is really nice. You couldn't asked for a better location. The owner is so nice and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. It would be fine for a family or just a couple. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was really nice to sit out on the swing by the river.

This place is just at the entrance of Chimney Rock Park. The rooms were really clean and we took the balcony room which had very nice view of river and Chimney rock. Lots of local shops and restaurants near by. Stay at this place really made our stay memorable. Would really love to visit again.

I loved the attention to detail at Carter Lodge. Such friendly staff, nothing is a problem and everything is very thoughtfully organised for your stay. Don’t hesitate in asking for suggestions of places to eat or things to do, the owners where lovely and very knowledgeable. The accommodation was so very clean and well cared for, it’s a pity we...
