About The Owner

Hi, my name is Dorothy and i live in Coral Springs Fla.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Asheville Area

My family and I have been visiting Chimney Rock and the Blue Rige mountains for 10 years. We loved it so much we just had to look for a vacation property. The Blue Rige Mountains has so much to offer for the entire family. This property had everything we wanted in a vacation home. The many balconies and windows is a perfect back drop for photos and spectacular night scenes with thousands of stars !

What makes this house unique

My children just love the new addition of the large gameroom. We just put in a new pool table and poker table downstairs. All the rocking chairs off the balconies make it perfect way to end your day. The fire place is a great way to spend cool nights together. We have a large yard for playing ball and picnics. The upsatairs bathroom is new with fossil tile and a jetted bathtub and a private balcony off the kids camp room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Family Vacation ,My husband, myself and our four kids had a GREAT time on our first trip to Chimney Rock. Home is great for kids and families,the gameroom with the pool table was a huge success with the entire family. The house is centrally located to Ashville, Hendersonville,Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. Great place for a relaxing vacation!

The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. The house was better than what you see in the pictures.

It is rustic and quaint, and very clean. We spent several days their with our family of seven, and had plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen and bathrooms were recently remodeled and the furniture was clean. Several months later our children are still talking about our stay and the converted basement into a game room. I highly recommend this place for a family with young children. The owners have gone well beyond their duty in making sure that the children had plenty of things to play with. Of note, there is only one parking spot and it favors an SUV due to the steep slope. Otherwise, it's close proximity to Asheville, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure makes it an ideal place to stay.

Chimney rock house

  • 4 of 5

We arrived during bad storm, so thankful for game room. House is very convenient to chimney rock and lake lure, which makes it easy. To be perfectly honest, only problem was parking. One vehicle , ok,

More than 1 would be a challenge, and we are from Fla. therefore don't do well with

mountain road challenges . Overall cozy and comfortable.

Thanks for allowing us to stay in your mountain home this past weekend. We had 6 adults and had plenty of room for all. The remodeled bathrooms and kitchen were very nice. I would let people know that the camp room worked fine for us but was actually open with no actual door.. The location is really close to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure and that was really nice. This home was clean and Dorothy was very easy to work with. I would reccomend renting a pontoon from Lake Lure Adventure Co , eating at Larkins on the Lake and of course going to the top of Chimney Rock.

This was a lovely home to stay in. Only a few minute drive to Chimney Rock & Lake Lure. We really had a wonderful time. Nice view from the balcony and you could hear the river. Would love to stay again. Thanks Dorothy for letting us stay.
