Description

Nestled at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Hickory Nut Gorge across from the Rocky Broad River, this lovely riverside cottage is perfect for a family vacation, friend retreat, or couple’s getaway. From the stacked stone fireplace, earthy color palette, homemade pottery, original doors, pressed flower art, and bright sunroom with glimpses of the glistening river and boulders blanketed with moss just outside, the interior seamlessly incorporates the nature that surrounds it in order to conjure an old world charm and warmth that flows throughout the home and instantly encourages you to drift into a state of ease and relaxation.

In the morning, settle in on the screened-in porch or on the charming swing just below to sip your morning coffee or tea and listen to the sound of the rushing water before walking alongside the river framed by blooming wisteria into town. Once there, sit down for a delicious brunch of cranberry walnut french toast topped with powdered sugar and whipped cream or made-from-scratch biscuits and gravy at local favorite, Medina’s Village Bistro.

After brunch, take time to browse the many village shops, play a round or two of mini-golf, snap some selfies in front of the vintage postcard murals, explore the quirky and creative Lake Lure Flowering Bridge, hike the various trails within Chimney Rock State Park, or soak up the sun on Lake Lure’s mountain beach. In the afternoon, wind down with a cold beer at Hickory Nut Gorge Brewery or a glass of locally-made wine at Burntshirt Vineyards. After returning home, hang a hammock or rest on the boulders in the front yard with your favorite book as the vibrant camellias sway in the breeze beside you.

As evening falls, venture inside to stream your favorite cooking show in the kitchen to inspire you as you create your own savory dinner to enjoy as the sun sets on the open-air deck overlooking the river. After dinner, cozy up around the stone fireplace to stream a movie and enjoy a glass of wine before wandering to the backyard to be transported into a secret and fantastical sanctuary all your own, where legendary creatures may dwell in the caves and play atop the gargantuan moss-covered boulders that tower around you. Gather around the outdoor fire pit to swap tales of adventures taken and yet to be embarked on while looking up at the magnificent stars overhead in the clear mountain sky.

Quaint and convenient, Rocky River Cottage at Chimney Rock offers a quiet refuge that’s just a stone’s throw away from the excitement and activity of the village shops, restaurants, and attractions less than 5 minutes away—making it the perfect place for rest and recreation!

Please note: There are exterior security cameras at this home. There is a full house generator in the event of a power outage. The river is stocked two times a month, 0.5 mile up from the home, for guests to enjoy fishing (license required).

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Rocky River Cottage is located in Chimney Rock. This home is approximately 3 minutes to the shops of Chimney Rock, 10 minutes to Lake Lure, 30 minutes to Black Mountain, and 40 minutes to Tryon and Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Rocky River Cottage is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Rocky River Cottage has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD AT THE HOUSE? WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses will have a small supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store.

Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Rocky River Cottage. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

WHAT IS LAKE LURE’S BOAT ACCESS POLICY? WHERE AND HOW DO I ACQUIRE A BOAT RENTAL?

Rocky River Cottage at Chimney Rock is subject to specific regulations and guidelines enforced by Lake Lure. Certain types of watercrafts are prohibited, and ALL watercrafts (motorized and non-motorized) must obtain and display a permit issued by the town in order to be on the lake.

For questions regarding boat rentals, please contact Lake Lure Adventure Company at (828) 625-8066 or Washburn Marina on Lake Lure at (828) 625-1373.

Everything! The sound of the rushing water across the road, the view of the mountains, the boulders and trees. Location was very convenient to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure and shopping and dining. The house has so many lovely outdoor spaces. It was well appointed and clean.
