Overview

Chimney Rock Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

River Rose Cottage is a charming cottage on a dead-end street that runs along the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. Just a short walk over the bridge and you are in downtown Chimney Rock. Built in 1921, the cottage retains many charming elements from its past, such as 10 foot bead-board ceilings and a natural stone fireplace with gas logs for chilly mountain evenings.

WE HAVE A LOCAL MANAGER AND CARETAKER WHO CAN PROVIDE ANY ASSISTANCE YOU MIGHT NEED DURING YOUR STAY!

The cottage has three porches furnished for outdoor living and dining, complete with rocking chairs and ceiling fans. The back screened porch overlooks the river and the open front porch is directly below Chimney Rock, affording a beautiful view of 'The Rock' which is dramatically illuminated in the evenings. However, our guests say their favorite spot for reading and relaxing is the large screened side porch where the sounds of the rushing river often lull you to sleep.

The Rocky Broad River is excellent for fly fishing, wading and tubing and is just steps from your back door! It's a River Rose Cottage tradition to spend an evening with family and friends around a campfire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows down by the river. Located within walking distance to village shops and restaurants and less than a mile from Lake Lure, River Rose Cottage is perfect for a family vacation, or a romantic getaway for two.

PLEASE NOTE: We have a 5-night minimum in the busy summer months and a 3-night minimum on holidays the rest of the year. We turn over on Sat or Sun in the summer. However, sometimes scheduling allows us to accept less than a 5-night minimum in summer, so please don't hesitate to inquire. However, we always have a 2-night minimum. We are sorry, but we are unable to accept one-night rentals.

IF YOU HAVE A LARGER GROUP, WE ALSO HAVE CRIMSON COTTAGE FOR RENT ON THE SAME STREET (VRBO #110939). COMBINED, THE TWO COTTAGES CAN SLEEP A MAXIMUM OF 14 PEOPLE. GREAT FOR A FAMILY REUNION. TENANTS RENTING RIVER ROSE COTTAGE RECEIVE A 10% DISCOUNT OFF CRIMSON COTTAGE.

About Sharon Ryan

Our family enjoys staying at River Rose Cottage because it is located on a charming village lane and is just a short walk over the bridge to Chimney Rock Village. We enjoy visiting the shops, sampling the family oriented restaurants, gem mining, and walking along the River Walk. We play mini golf in the village and enjoy the beautiful mountain and river views.

Sharon Ryan purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sharon Ryan chose Chimney Rock

We love outdoor activities and they are abundant here. You can walk down to the river in the back of the cottage to fish, wade or tube. Hiking and exploring Chimney Rock State Park is lots of fun and the entrance to the Park is very close by. The Lake Lure Marina is just a mile away where you can take a run (or walk) on the pedestrian trail, rent a canoe, play a game of tennis while the kids enjoy the playground equipment, or swim and enjoy water games at the Lake Lure Beach,

What makes this cottage unique

First thing in the morning, we walk to the Lake Lure Marina and run on the pedestrian trial that weaves along the shoreline of Lake Lure. On the way back to the cottage, we walk along the beautiful Flowering Bridge that spans the river. At the cottage, we have breakfast on the screen porch overlooking the river. If we are in the mood for hiking, we pack a picnic lunch and hike in Chimney Rock State Park. Our sons really enjoy the rock climbing tower there. After a strenuous day hiking, my wife enjoys a soak in the Jacuzzi tub that we recently installed when we renovated one of the bathrooms. We have dinner in one of the lakefront restaurants in Lake Lure and sample the local trout. However, if we're feeling lazy, we just enjoy spending the day reading while sitting in one of the rockers on the screen porch and listening to the soothing sounds of the Rocky Broad River, right out the back door.

Charming, cozy, and relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old daughter and my 2 teenage daughters. The cabin is located so conveniently to downtown Chimney Rock that we spent much of the week walking to the shops, while my husband would relax and watch TV in front of the WARM fireplace. We also slipped off to Hendersonville one day, which was wonderful. The kitchen was very well appointed and I loved all the windows looking out over the river. We absolutely loved everything about the cabin, and had such a wonderful vacation that it was so hard to have to leave! I already miss being there, and am so looking forward to coming back next year!

I stayed at River Rose Cottage from 10/6-10/10. The purpose was to spend sometime with my daughter who lives close by, and can not travel to see me. Not only did I get to do this, but, also got to relax and enjoy the wonderment of peace and quite. The cottage is lovely, and felt just like home. Sitting on the screen back porch, and listening to the river brought only smiles to my face, and a comfort of peace that is hard to maintain in our everyday life.

Vacation at Chimney Rock

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this cottage and our stay in Chimney Rock. The cottage was impeccable and comfortable for our family. We found it a relaxing haven after a day of hiking around the area. We enjoyed the screened-in porch both morning and evening with the sounds of the creek. The management of the property was welcoming, professional, and helpful. I highly recommend this cottage.

Thanks so much to you and best wishes. Sharon and Heather

Charming and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at River Rose Cottage was enhanced by the beautiful location by the Rocky Broad River and by the charming cottage itself. We spent our morning coffee time out by the river watching the wildlife and listening to the sounds of the water tumbling over the rocks. The cottage is very well appointed and comfortable with plenty of room for 2 and (later in our week) our small family for a total of 6. The cottage itself is a historical structure with beautiful hardwoods and bead-boarding such as I remember from my grandmother's farmhouse. It was a wonderful step back in time that included all of the modern amenities that we are accustomed to having. You can easily walk into Chimney Rock Village to visit the shops and restaurants, and each proprietor that we had contact with was welcoming and friendly. Lake Lure Marina is a very short drive (less than 5 minutes), and we enjoyed our boat tour and the beach at Lake Lure. The cottage's porches provided ample and relaxing room for conversation (and naps!), and the furnishings on the porches provided extra seating for meals and reading. I would recommend Laura's Restaurant for a hearty lunch and any of the river side diners for a drink and music. Historic Downtown Hendersonville is an easy 20 minute drive for a day trip to visit museums, antique shops, and bookstores, along with several restaurants and bakery with outside seating for people-watching. I highly recommend River Rose Cottage through Distinctive Mountain Lodging. Sharon Ryan is a true gem! She helped us to plan the perfect anniversary and family getaway.

Owner's Response: Hi Beth, Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful review of River Rose Cottage. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. We love the cottage and the village of Chimney Rock, and we're so glad you did as well. We've posted the picture of your grandsons down by the river on our Facebook page. It is an adorable picture. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon. Sharon and Heather

Wonderful time at River Rose Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together for a week at River Rose Cottage - some of us from Canada and some of us from Southeastern North Carolina - to celebrate our daughters' birthdays and have some time together. It was the perfect place. We hiked, kayaked, toured Asheville, enjoyed great meals on the porch and conversations while sitting on the rocks beside the river. We couldn't have asked for a better place than the lovely and quaint River Rose Cottage.

The cottage was well cared for, clean and the beds comfortable. We love to cook together and found the kitchen to be quite well equipped. Our stay was flawless and we had everything we needed to fully enjoy our family time.

Thank you to the owners and manager of River Rose Cottage for a perfect family week!
