“The most exceptional property in the area”. The cabin is built on large stone boulders overhanging the Rocky Broad River. Climb the cascading waterfall on the property. Fish from one of the large boulders, just steps from your door. Swim in the waterhole. Tube down the falls. Hop the stones. Or quietly watch for wildlife. You can do all of this while chatting with those relaxing on one of the 2 large decks, one of the stone patios, or one of the large rocks. It’s an experience you’ll never forget!
Take a short stroll to downtown Chimney Rock with its unique shops and restaurants. Walk to the entrance of Chimney Rock State Park. Or spend the day on Lake Lure with its many water activities.
When entering the main home, you will be stepping back to the ambience of a 1930’s mountain cabin with original wood floors, ceilings and walls. The living room and dining room have been opened to view the outside scenery. The furniture is custom-made mountain laurel. All the bathrooms have been updated and enlarged. The large fully equiped modern kitchen will be a gathering place with its elevated table. It’ll be easy to prepare for a crowd with the 5-burner gas stove and double oven. Or if you prefer, cook on the grill outside the back door.
You’ll never lack for activities for the family. There’s a firepit at water’s edge for visiting and roasting marshmellows, a large yard for yard games, stone benches for watching the sun set, patios for viewing your own private cascading waterfall, the 360 degree mountain views, or Chimney Rock and Hickory Nut Falls in Chimney Rock State Park. Or walk along the landscaped stone paths to take in the beauty of the site and the exotic trees and plants.
A one room stone cottage sits next to the main house. It sits high on a large boulder and is built of native stone 16 inches thick. It features a full bath and an efficiency kitchen. All of the above amenities of the site are available for your enjoyment. This cottage can be rented as a package with the cabin or seperately. Please call for details and rate information.

This mountain home was bought by a mother and her adult professional children. This is our dream second home and have enjoyed numerous family get togethers and quality time together since the cabins purchase.
Bernadine Darling purchased this cabin in 2011
The property is a very short stroll to downtown Chimney Rock. Restaurants and shopping are truely a 2 minute walk away as well as the entrance to Chimney Rock State Park. Although it is right in town the property itself is extremely private with the most breathtaking views of the Rocky Broad River, the mountains, a cascading waterfall outside your back door, and private paths. The property is unlike anything we have ever dreamed of as it has everything we could have possible wanted or needed as far as location and views
You can't help but relax and enjoy the nature and mountain air. We watch the river otter sunning himself on the large rock next to our swimming hole, while getting the fishing pole ready for a day of trout fishing outside our back door. We relax by the fire pit, while counting the fireflys illuminating the night sky. We get up to enjoy the sunrise while sitting on our private stone bench and eat our picnic lunch on a rock in the middle of the cascading fall in our back yard.
The very best thing about this property is the location next to the river. The kids loved exploring and climbing on the rocks- we enjoyed the fire pit for smores and taking in the starry sky. Pros of the house are the upstairs deck, large kitchen, ample sleeping space, and good wifi. Our girls enjoyed the big bathtub upstairs. However, in my opinion, the house needs some TLC. The two rooms my family slept in had sheets with tears in them. The grill has seen better days and the propane tank was empty so we could not get it to work during our short stay. The shower curtain in our bathroom was mildewed. And I agree with a prior reviewer that the house needs a deep cleaning, there was dust and dirt on the floors behind doors and on the edges of rooms. All of these things together led to some disappointment with the property.
GREAT HOUSE GREAT YARD GREAT VIEW!!!!!! We could take a walk to town but yet the way the house is set back into the rocks and trees we felt secluded in our own paradise!!!!!!! Absolutely loved it!!!!!!!! If you love the mountains and you have the opportunity to rent this house DO YOURSELF A FAVOR!!!!!!!!
To borrow the book's title, it describes 2-3 days of our recent stay; flies everywhere. Local caretaker explained "they seem to come every month or so," but we'd not been told, there wasn't evidence of preventive maintenance, and we were totally unprepared for the onslaught. The cabin's location is aesthetically terrific, but the facility itself could benefit from an improved cleaning service; top to bottom, kitchen cupboards, closets, etc. And beware: the loft type bedroom (single bed) has NO ventilation. cough/cough. Outside cottage was a lifesaver; really nice.
Everything we were looking for! Big comfy house in a somewhat private setting, but within walking distance to downtown chimney rock. The owner was super easy to work with. Will certainly book again!!
Three generations of three couples and two children stayed in this beautiful vacation cabin. Everyone enjoyed the week long stay. The cabin is large enough for individual times and for the group get-togethers. The fire pit by the river was an extra bonus on the warm summer nights. The soothing sounds of the river were enchanting. Fishing for rainbow trout right from the back yard was also a treat. The owner was easy to work with and any problems were addressed in a timely matter. Will always stay here on all our trips to The North Carolina Mountains.
Our family rented this beautiful home for my daughter's destination wedding weekend. The wedding was held at the Lake Lure Inn not far away. Three couples and three college kids had plenty of room in the main house. A fourth couple stayed in the additional cottage. The setting was beautiful. I could get used to sitting on the porch with coffee in the morning watching and listening to the river! Although time didn't allow, I would have enjoyed using the firepit along side the river too.
Property is perfect for a destination wedding location
