Rondi, the owner of The River House, provided my family with the perfect week-long vacation retreat for a multi-generation family reunion this summer. Not only were our accommodations both comfortable and private, but the house was also very charming. Each morning we sipped our coffee on the deck overlooking the serene river, and each evening we enjoyed long family dinners... More

B&Bs are a great experience because of Inn Keepers like Rondi. Not only does she know the places to see and eat but she is also very personable. She also asked us to bring back info on the places we went that she didn't know for other guest, well done. We will be back next year, thanks for a great... More

My friend and I stayed for three days in the adorable "Tree Top Suite". It was my first time to the area and my first time staying at an official B&B. Such a wonderful experience! Rondi goes above and beyond as a hostess. She is so pleasant and takes great care to ensure everyone feels welcomed. Every room we saw... More

We stayed at the River House for our 20th anniversary, sans kids. The River House is a beautifully restored home with great views of Chimney Rock and the Broad River. It is clean, comfortable, and cozy. The location is convenient to both Chimney Rock SP and Lake Lure. The house was completely full the first night we were there but... More

We stayed in the "The Dirty Dancing room and were very pleased. Rondi was an exceptional host. Breakfast was great. Walking distance to the town of Chimney Rock. Loved the river view. Will definitely stay again.

My friend and I loved our stay at River House. We really enjoyed our room, the Dirty Dancing Room. This room comes with its own deck which overlooks the rushing waters of the river. Sitting on the deck with a good book or just enjoying the sunset is mesmerizing. At night, we opened the window a little bit so that... More

What a great place! VERY clean, quaint and in a perfect location. It's a very old restored home with charm. Chrissy took care of us. She bent over backwards to make sure her guests were happy. So quiet at night, just the sound of the river flowing over the boulders. Great fishing! It really will relax you into the perfect... More
