“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cottage is just what we needed for a relaxing weekend. Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The screened in porches were wonderful. We loved the bench on the river to just sit and relax. The weather was not cool enough for us to use the huge fire pit but we will be going back. We were to check out Sunday, so Sunday morning we were taking in the beauty and listening to the river and had the totally unexpected blessing of an organist from the little church across the river as she began serenading us with hymns. Love this cottage.... Can you tell?

“Just what we needed!”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Where do I begin to describe how perfect our stay was at Grist Mill River Cottage? We needed a long weekend to unplug and get away from it all, and this sweet cottage and burbling river more than delivered! The house itself was impeccable, with the bathrooms and kitchen spotless. The master bedroom has a huge comfy bed and we slept better than we have in months. We spent lots of time on the screened decks, and couldn't get enough of the sound of the ruver behind the house. The backyard and the house next door are also beautifully landscaped, which added so much to our enjoyment of being outside.

We WILL be back!

Liked best: The comfy and huge king size bed, and the sound of the river.
Liked least: With so many other things provided, we were surprised that there were no coffee filters - thankfully we brought tea. :-)

We had a great stay at the Grist Mill River Cottage!!! We went with another couple (friends of ours) and we each had toddler boys with us which can always present a challenge to any stay. The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated, we really felt at home when we got there. The view of the river and the outside area was unbelievable!!! We had warm fires each nice and roasted marshmellows with the boys:) There is a great little cider mill two doors down where you can pick up some freshly made apple cider, and the town of Chimney rock is just down the road for dinner or a night out. Overall, we had a great experience and we can't wait to come back next year. We are already talking about when....

Beautiful home; A/C, great layout, cabin-like decor w/o looking too rustic. Awesome beds, great outdoor space with porches, decks, grill, fire pit, and the Broad River, then the mountains of the Hickory Nut Gorge. Great accessibility to hiking, charming towns like Black Mountain, Hendersonville, and the State Theater of NC. Good restaurants and cute shops are within a 10 minute drive. The funky vibe of Asheville and the elegance of the Biltmore estate are only 35 minutes away.
