Grist Mill River Cottage is located on the Rocky Broad River only 3 miles from Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure Marina and Beach. The cottage offers great fly fishing and a huge backyard with fire pit just steps from the back door. Beautifully decorated with high quality furniture, it's cozy enough for 2, but easily sleeps a family or group of 7 people. The views and wonderful sounds of the rushing river can be enjoyed from the screened-in balcony off the master bedroom and from 2 screen porches.

Grist Mill River Cottage had its beginnings in the 1920's as one of Bat Cave, North Carolina's first grist mills on the Rocky Broad River.

This cottage is just what we needed for a relaxing weekend. Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The screened in porches were wonderful. We loved the bench on the river to just sit and relax. The weather was not cool enough for us to use the huge fire pit but we will be going back. We were to check out Sunday,... more

Where do I begin to describe how perfect our stay was at Grist Mill River Cottage? We needed a long weekend to unplug and get away from it all, and this sweet cottage and burbling river more than delivered! The house itself was impeccable, with the bathrooms and kitchen spotless. The master bedroom has a huge comfy bed and we...

We had a great stay at the Grist Mill River Cottage!!! We went with another couple (friends of ours) and we each had toddler boys with us which can always present a challenge to any stay. The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated, we really felt at home when we got there. The view of the river and the... more
