My wife and I spent the weekend here in the spring. This is a very intimate space, maybe 20 rooms total. We enjoyed ourselves so much, there is a great path that leads down to the river, and is brightly lit at night

We stayed one night. The owner was very nice and offered us the rooms he had available. He handed us the key and said we could look it over before we rented. It was clean and looked great. Refrigerator, excellent views of the river and Chimney Rock. Right on the edge of town so you can walk to all the shops. The beds were very comfortable too. Only downside was the internet had a poor signal. I suppose it's like that all over town and we was told that before checking in. It was a nice place and I do recommend .

Thank you for your very kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your room, our view and our town. Our facility is very conveniently located to our town of Chimney Rock. Everything is in walking distance. I do apologize for our WIFI, but it is very challenging being in a Gorge with mountains on both sides of us. We only have one tower for our town and it is spotty at best. I just say it just gives you more time to look around at the beauty. We hope that you will come back and see us again in the future. Thank you for recommending our facility. That is exactly how we have grown our guests over these 26 years. Again, thank you.

This lodge is run by a couple that are very friendly, and aim to please. The rooms are very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. A small fridge is there, and a microwave is downstairs for our use. The huge coffee urn is ready by 6:00, which is also downstairs. The outside is full of flowers, and places to sit and watch the water. The fact that one can walk into town is a huge plus. We will definately return.
