My husband and I are from Florida and had never been to Chimney Rock before. We were delighted the River House was right in the very best part of Chimney Rock on the river and walking distance to the restaurants and shops. We felt right at home in this ecclectic and cozy bed and breakfast. We chose to stay in one of the bedrooms upstairs where we slept like babies to the sound of the river. We awoke to a homemade breakfast by Mandy, who talked with us about things to do in Chimney Rock and nearby communities while providing us with a hearty breakfast. We loved the homemade cinnamon rolls! River House seems to attract a certain crowd, because we met some of the most intersting and wonderful people there during our 5 night stay. We had great recommendations from Mandy and the owner on fun hikes to take and different sights to see while we went to the nearby towns of Asheville, Black Mountain, Brevard and Hendersonville. We can't wait to go back to River House and the respite it offers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The River House sits on the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock, NC. We are just steps away from the quaint town center and just a quarter of a mile from the entrance to Chimney Rock National State Park. You may rent single rooms or the entire house. There are 3 rooms with private entrance and outdoor decks. We have one room on the first floor that is convenient for wheel chair access and two suites on the second floor. One suite has 2 bedrooms with a kind and two twin beds. The other suite has 3 bedrooms with a king and 2 queen size beds. We serve breakfast from 8:30 am - 10:00 am when we operate as an Inn. If the entire house is rented out to one person/group, you are welcome to use the kitchen to make your own food. There is also a main deck off of the kitchen/dining room where you can look up and see Chimney Rock. Or, you may choose to look down and watch kayakers, fishermen and rock climbers in the river. ... more less
