Sharon Ryan purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sharon Ryan chose Asheville Area

We love fishing, boating, swimming, running, and long walks. We chose this property because it is walking distance to Chimney Rock Village and only one mile to Lake Lure where you can fish, swim, rent a boat or take a walk or run along the walking trials. The house is large enough for our whole family and the location is perfect.

What makes this cottage unique

It is perfect for a family or group of friends who are looking for value and want to be in the center of activities. It's casually furnished, very comfortable and family friendly. It is only a short stroll across the bridge over the Rocky Broad River to the quaint shops and restaurants of Chimney Rock Village, the entrance to Chimney Rock State Park, and to trout fishing along the beautiful Riverwalk.

First family (summer) vacation in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family typically vacations at the beach in the summer and long weekend getaways in the mountains. However, this year we decided to change things up and have our summer vacation in the NC mountains. We have 2 children, a 9 yr old daughter & 7 yr old son. This makes our 3rd trip to Chimney Rock but our first time staying in Crimson Cottage. From the online reservation, I knew the upstairs game room would be a hit with the kids (and it was!). They loved having their own space and lots of games. I can't say enough good things about the cabin. It is spacious and feels like home. Plenty of hot water and A/C works great. It's nice that we could wash clothes in their modern W/D. The beds were very comfy and the location is fantastic. We loved being able to walk over the bridge and into town in less than 30 seconds! One of the kids' favorite things to do was take their shoes off and climb on the rocks at the River Walk in town. It's free entertainment for them and nice for dad and I to relax while they are exploring and enjoying the outdoors. We grilled out one night with the grill provided and had planned on making a fire in the pit to roast marshmallows but it was so very hot that we decided that would be a better thing to do in the fall. We had dinner our first night at Old Rock Cafe (we'd been there before). My husband had a cheeseburger and the rest of the week kept thinking about going back for another one, so we did on another night. We enjoy the outdoor seating and friendly staff at Old Rock. The management company was very professional, kind, and accommodating. We would love to stay at Crimson Cottage again the future. If you're researching and wondering if this cabin would be a good fit for your family, believe me, it is!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a wonderful review. You covered it all and we can't thank you enough for taking the time to write such an extensive review of Crimson Cottage. We agree it has a great location and the upstairs game room is a hit for kids of all ages. Glad you got to enjoy the River Walk on the Rocky Broad River. Next time, you must put zip lining at Canopy Ridge Farm on your agenda. Thanks again for being such wonderful guests and we hope to see you again in the fall when you can use the fire pit.

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family and extended family stayed here for a fall wedding in the mountains. There were tons of games to play and entertain kids. It was a PERFECT location, right at the base of Chimney Rock and next to the river. We listened to the river from the cottage. There was so much room! It was clean and convenient to shopping (just a walk across a bridge). The manager was so helpful, even with our really late check in. We would love to stay here again. I would definitely recommend it, especially for families.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our children on their fall break from Furman University and Virginia Tech..The location of this cottage was perfect....a very short walk to Chimney Rock center and Lake lure was only a mile away...We rarely used our car....We did so much during our 4 night stay, mini golf, kayaking, zip lining, apple picking in Hendersonville(less than a15 minute drive to the nearest orchard) and traveling to Asheville, about a half hour or so away..This is an older home with a very small kitchen, the dining room was a nice size and the rest of the cottage was spacious and accommodated our large group well...Crimson cottage is near a river making it is a little musty but has working air conditioning that helped clear the air...The bedrooms were very nice and there were also pullout couches in the living room, plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably...The huge upstairs was great and the kids had fun hanging out in their own private area, playing games and watching movies...We loved the yard and the veiw from the backyard facing the cliff is beautiful! The house is in a neighborhood but the yard is big and we had fun playing horseshoes and enjoyed sitting around the the fire we made in the rustic fire pit....Our family had a lovely long weekend and we will cherish our time and the memories we made at Chimney rock and Crimson cottage.

Wonderful start to our Christmas break!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit during the first week of Christmas break, while school was out. We had 10 in all, 4 kids and 6 adults. I cannot say enough good things about Crimson Cottage, we had everything we needed. The kids loved the upstairs room while the adults had their own space downstairs. Close enough to walk to Chimney rock village, the river, great dining (Loved Laura's house). Drove up to Chimney Rock on Saturday and with the elevator out, we decided to trek it all the way to the top. So cold and windy but the view made it all worth it! On Tuesday we took a 1 1/2 hour horseback trail ride with Cedar Creek Stables, solidifying this trip as our family's best EVER!

You CANNOT beat this!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my friend's family rented this property in July of 2013. We just got back a few days ago. I cannot say enough good things about it....and I know I'll probably leave some things out of this review. But, if you are trying to decide if this place is worth the price...and is it REALLY just a short walk into the town? Yes - yes - yes it is. You literally could throw a stone to the bridge from this house - the bridge is fun to walk over, too...my girls loved tossing rocks down below - then, once you get across the bridge - you're right there in the fun little town of Chimney Rock. Gem shops, General Store, Gem Mining, awesome restaurants- especially "Laura's" with the perfect expansive view of Chimney Rock, souvenir shops, a River Walk, and more are along the road. I have twin 3 year olds and we made that little walk to the town several times. I loved not having to get in the car! Lake Lure's beach is about a 5 minute drive away. Back to the house - it is immaculately clean (and I'm picky). There's a full dining room next to the kitchen. The upstairs game room is AWESOME - the kids LOVED IT. We had 8 people - it was more than enough room for us - in fact we laughed about how we felt like we were in separate houses at night time because we couldn't hear each other. The kids in our group ranged from 3 - 12 years. The downstairs has a large den with TV....WiFi is available. The master bedroom is huge. Up to date Washer and Dryer. Porch with lots of chairs...Lots of dishes to use. Mrs. Ryan was fantastic to work with - so pleasant on the phone. Plenty of room for two families like ours. I am thrilled to have spent time at the Crimson Cottage and cannot wait to go back! If you're like me and you are hoping you won't be making a bad decision using your hard earned money for this location - you will find that you made the right choice for your family! I couldn't believe all that we got to enjoy because of choosing this rental. Thank you, Mrs. Ryan for making our stay such a wonderful one. :)
