River House at Chimney Rock

Traveller (59)
Room & Suite (39)
Dining (1)


The River House sits on the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock, NC. We are just steps away from the quaint town center and just a quarter of a mile from the entrance to Chimney Rock National State Park. You may rent single rooms or the entire house. There are 3 rooms with private entrance and outdoor decks. We have one room on the first floor that is convenient for wheel chair access and two suites on the second floor. One suite has 2 bedrooms with a kind and two twin beds. The other suite has 3 bedrooms with a king and 2 queen size beds. We serve breakfast from 8:30 am - 10:00 am when we operate as an Inn. If the entire house is rented out to one person/group, you are welcome to use the kitchen to make your own food. There is also a main deck off of the kitchen/dining room where you can look up and see Chimney Rock. Or, you may choose to look down and watch kayakers, fishermen and rock climbers in the river.

We had a lovely experience at the River House at Chimney Rock. We enjoyed the room down by the water! It was quiet except for the sound of the river....which we loved. Breakfast was wonderful. Chrissy was a lovely hostess and always took time to talk but never was

Loved our 2-nite stay. Chrissy met us at the door after a long, tiring, rainy drive. She greeted us warmly and made us feel so very welcomed. My “crew” had the three-bedroom River View suite. It could not have been more perfectly suited to our needs. One room overlooked

Hello and thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the Dirty Dancing Room and the River Runs Through It Rooms are right on the river with their own private decks on the river. Bella Room is one back from the river and has it's own private deck. The other rooms which have beautiful huge picture windows with great views of the river are the Rocky Broad Suite and the TreeTop Suite. Hope this helps and if I can help further, please feel free to call me at 828-625-4335. Thank you! Warm regards, Rondi Jennings

We are thinking of visiting around the second week in September, what is the weather and temperature like then?
The weather can vary so much it is really hard to say. I have been in Chimney Rock when it is still quite warm in Sept. and other times when it is cooler. The best thing would probably be to read the averages online for the month of Sept. on one of the weather sites. The responder above is correct in everything he told you esp. about the leaves in October. Sorry I am not more help! :) Rondi Jennings
