“Perfect location, beautiful inn, friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed October 22, 2007

My fiance and I recently stayed at Fibber MaGee's Riverfront Inn in Chimney Rock, NC from 10/18/07 thru 10/21/07. We have been to the Chimney Rock/Lake Lure area a few times before but have never stayed at this particular inn. We were pleasantly surprised! The inn is very pretty inside and located directly on the riverfront. Most rooms have balconies facing the river so you can hear the water rushing over the rocks if you have the porch door cracked a little. We met our parents there so they could meet for the first time before our wedding, so we got to experience 3 different rooms: 1, 3, and 4. Room 1 was very nice. It has a King-size bed, a large bathroom with jacuzzi tub, and a covered porch overlooking the river, mini-golf course, and street. Room 3 has a Queen-size bed, a good sized bathroom, and a porch over-looking the river. Room 4 has a Queen-size bed, a very small bathroom with shower only, and a porch over-looking the river. We also got to peek into the other rooms as they were being turned-over for new guests and we really liked all of them. Although perhaps not a true bed-and-breakfast inn, they do have continental breakfast in the kitchen in the mornings Mondays thru Fridays with breakfast sandwiches on Saturdays and a full, hot breakfast on Sundays. The food is very good (simple but good) and cooked by the owners, Larry and Carol. The kitchen is open all the time and they often had cookies and juice and coffee available. You can use the main refrigerator if you would like, most rooms have a mini fridge as well. All rooms (there are 9 of them I think) share access to a covered, screened porch overlooking the river at the main entrance to the rooms. All rooms are upstairs above the gift store and coffee shop except for one is downstairs facing the river with its own private entrance by the mini-golf course. There was no traffic noise - even though you are on the main street, this is a very small, quiet town. We met some very nice guests and the owners and employees were very sweet and quite helpful with things to see and do in the area. You also get a generous sampling of fresh ground gourmet coffee from their coffee shop when you check in to use in your in-room coffee makers or to take home to try later. Oh and you do share a common hallway with all of the other quests, but don't worry - once you are in your room for the night, you really can't hear anyone else.

This is a beautiful house with very well-appointed and nicely decorated rooms. The beds are very comfy and soft and you pretty much have all the pleasures of home while you are here. Housekeeping tidies up every day and they do a good job, everything was nice and clean for the entire time we were there. And not to mention you get a 10% discount off anything you purchase in their store (they sell Vera Bradley and Yankee Candle)! Check out their website for more details at [--]. The inn is located in the heart of the Village of Chimney Rock so there are quite a few stores and restaurants to walk to from your room.

We loved our experience and would definitely stay there again the next time we visit beautiful Chimney Rock and Lake Lure!
