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.
