Call or email for Special Rates! This charming 1000 square foot cottage is private, quaint, welcoming and exceptionally clean. Come sit on the back decks and enjoy over 200’ of private creek frontage, cook hot dogs and marshmallow at the campfire, or sit on the double swing overlooking our two small waterfalls and relax on a half acre of frontage on Hickory Creek. We like to boast that we have one of the best view of the Creek and Hickory Nut Gorge and surrounding mountains. Discover the magic of Hickory Nut Gorge and Chimney Rock!
Chimney Rock Cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or small gatherings of up to 6 people. The Cottage has one king-size bed, a double bed in the second bedroom, a queen-size sofa bed in living room, a Franklin stove with gas logs, three AC window units, Washer and Dryer, fully equipped kitchen (except no dishwasher), televisions, DVD players and outdoor grill.
Guests love to share breakfast on the deck at the intimate Creekside table for 2 and watch the sun dance over the small double waterfalls below. There's also a larger outdoor picnic table for additional seating. Beyond the deck, an inviting boardwalk beckons you to enjoy nature's playground of over half an acre of shady woods and creek frontage in a park-like setting. The crystal clear waters of Hickory Nut Creek are perfect for wading, fishing or just splashing around to cool off after a hot day. The less adventuresome can laze away the day in the hammock, lulled to sleep by the rushing water sounds of the creek, just a stone's throw away. In the evenings, it's a cottage tradition to gather around the fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows and sharing a picnic supper down by the creek.
We would also highly recommend that you visit Chimney Rock State Park for hiking and the town of Chimney Rock for gem mining, shopping, eating, especially ice cream, which are only a 3 minute drive from the cottage; Asheville, only 20 miles from the cottage is fantastic for shopping, dining and entertainment. Charming Hendersonville also has a quaint f=downtown and variety of shopping, dining and entertainment and is a quick 15 minute drive. Explore too while you are here the beautiful Lake Lure a 7 minute drive with 360 degree panorama views, fine dining, a manmade beach and water slide, rent a boat or bring your own and of course fishing.
Finally, after a full day exploring this beautiful area, fall asleep at the end of the day to the sounds of rushing Hickory Nut Creek which can be heard from every room in the cottage. As our guests often note at the end of their stay, 'Chimney Rock Cottage was all you said it would be . . . and more.'

Sports & Adventure Activities
We really enjoyed our stay at Creekside Cottage! It was perfect for our girl's getaway!
This cottage was perfect. The house was clean and we had everything we needed but the best part was the backyard right on the beautiful creek. The porch was wonderful, as well as the fire pit and there is a perfect place for a hammock overlooking the creek. The sound of the rushing water was very relaxing. The back yard is very private even though the cottage is on the main road and very easy to find. We hope we will be able to visit again.
Everything you Needed
It was a great little view and the cottage has everything you need. It felt like a home away from home.My family enjoyed the stay and the mountain escape.
Customers tell us that this cottage and the location is wonderful comfort and relaxation.
We enjoyed our stay. The creek in the backyard with the fire pit is so relaxing.
Very old cottage. Not enought clean as I expected.
Very old cottage. Not enough clean as I expected. We have 3 mice in the house..we could not sleep the 2 first nights. Finally, we bought sticky mouse trap, and killed the mice. The cottage has to be renovated to look more pleasant.
We do get an occasional mouse in the cottage especially during winter even though we have a pest service. It has to do with the location of the cottage being in the woods and right on top of water.The cottage is cleaned after every booking and deep cleaned twice a year. This is the first time I have heard that furnishings need to be updated. Most everyone loves this cottage and setting.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Horseshoes, Boating, Miniature golf, Shopping Though still somewhat of a hidden gem, Rumbling Bald Climbing Access is considered to be world-class bouldering and technical rock climbing with some of the best terrain in the Southeast. It contains an estimated 1,500 bouldering problems that are easily accessible in this non-fee section of Chimney Rock State Park. The most popular climbing seasons are fall and winter. A new half-mile hiking trail from the parking area to the climbing area was completed in December 2012 with the help of a group of local volunteers, including the Carolina Climbers Collation, Friends of Chimney Rock State Park and Carolina Mountain Club. Visitors may park in the designated parking area located off Boys Camp Road. Cars should not be parked along the entrance drive, on the grass or along the wooden bollards. Additional parking is available at the Town of Lake Lure's municipal parking lot on Hwy 64/74A, from which you can carpool. For directions and the latest information, visit www.ncparks.gov
