About the property

Relaxing Rental on the Rocky Broad River at Elysium Lodging. The cabin is 100 feet from the riverbank, NOT water front, nestled in the woods below the Chimney Rock at the top of the driveway. It is just a short walk to the stairs and river front, all on the same property.

Location: Chimney Rock, Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA. Minutes from Chimney Rock Park, one mile from Lake Lure and the beach water park, and 25 miles from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. The Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah’s Casino, Sliding Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Sugar Beach skiing, are less than two hours away.

Accommodations: Two-story cabin with one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, and great room on each level with laundry and hide-a-bed sofa on lower level. Sleeps two to six. ALSO: we have a new paved driveway! No more issues for any vehicles and comfortable for the short walk to the riverfront!!

Elysium (from Greek mythology meaning 'a place of ideal bliss or complete happiness; paradise:) Lodging offers restful rental at the end of a dead-end street that runs parallel to the Rocky Broad River near the village of Chimney Rock, North Carolina.

The two-story cabin has an open porch on the 'treetop' level with porch swing and barbecue grill. The view from every window is wooded treetops and Bald Mountain. The dramatically illuminated Chimney 'Rock' can be seen in the evenings. The sounds of the rushing river can be heard at night from just a few yards down the driveway where steps lead down to a beautiful riverfront with two swings and a hammock.

The Rocky Broad is wonderful for fishing, wading, duck watching, rock hunting, and tubing and is just a short walk from your door. The cabin is just a few short blocks to the village of Chimney Rock, filled with charming shops and restaurants and a mile from the beach at Lake Lure with boat rental and pontoon boat rides around the lake. Chimney Rock Park offers a day of climbing adventure or just a birds eye view of breathtaking miles and miles of beautiful mountain area terrain in all directions. On a clear day it seems you can see forever. The months of May and October are particularly spectacular.

Amenities: Air Conditioning, gas wall heaters, shower, towels, and Jacuzzi tub in large upstairs cabin bath, lower level of cabin handicap accessible, full bath and shower, Cable TV, Full Kitchen with microwave, stove, refrigerator, cooking utensils, washer and dryer in lower level of cabin, barbecue grill on upper cabin porch.

We loved our stay at Elysium Lodging. The location was perfect for Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The house had everything we needed and was super cozy. We would definitely come back and stay again!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED our time in chimney rock. It was too short :(

The rental way perfect. We traveled to UNC Asheville everyday to watch fall practice ball. Enough room for my son's roommates to come join us for dinner. Wish we had more time to spend around the cabin and area of Chimney Rock. We are starting to plan our spring trips and will definitely be coming again.

Amazing Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a week end and the cabin it's just amazing!!!

It has anything you need to stay in and its in a short walk or drive to the town main street

It can accommodate two couples and each one can have its privacy on each level of the cabin

A plus for us the river that our son enjoyed so much, and one of our high lights was the time we spend around the bonfire at night

We never saw the owners so we felt the privacy but when we contacted them, they answer right away to our request and were super accommodating

We left very happy and already planning on coming back to this beautiful place

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Love it! The house had everything you needed plus more. It was great. One couple stayed upstairs and the other down. We both had our own living room and kitchen. Then we had times we were all together! It's just a great cabin in walking distance of eating and shopping.

This property is located in heart of Chimney Rock. Good location.

  • 2 of 5

The outdoor area is quite nice. The home itself could use updating. Some of the furniture is soiled and not very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Carol, We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback so we can make visits more enjoyable in the future. We try in many ways to keep our rental prices low and DO NOT charge a cleaning or pet fee. Once a season we professionally clean the carpet, upholstery and mattresses. We are very sorry you found the furnishings dated and or not clean. It will be evaluated immediately and addressed if necessary. Thank you again for your visit and feedback. Deborah
