We came up to the World Equestrian Games and of course, everything was full. We found this little gem in Chimney Rock/Lake Lure. We were thankful to find a room, honestly. The owner greeted us from upstairs. We had a reservation. He introduced himself and took us into the office. As we were registering, he explained that he is a new owner....only been for a few months with several children. We were immediately impressed with the ratings on the door- A TripAdvisor mention and another rating that was very high as well (sorry that I can't remember-we were HOT and tired). Our room was very pleasant- clean, nicely decorated, and homey. We are headed to dinner at Esmeralda's. Our third visit in 18 years. We love the area and are glad that we found this place. You will enjoy your stay!

First I’d like to say the young family that owns this are amazing! They have only owned this place just shy of two months . It’s obvious they are trying hard to make something old new again. It was clean and the decorations were so charming. The owner shook my hand and introduced himself before conducting business. I was thoroughly impressed. His family owns a putt putt across the street and you get 10% off and his sister owns a coffee shop in town that has amazing coffee. Super friendly and crazy affordable. We are already planning our next visit

Really enjoyed our stay..clean room friendly staff and a very convenient location. The room we stayed in really needed a new bed.
The one we attempted to sleep on should have been donated to Goodwill years ago. Sadly with sleep being an important part of traveling, the bed was the ONLY reason for a 3 star review. Hope they make the necessary improvements.

Thank you so much for your review. We just purchased the property on 7/19 and have yet to figure out all that is needed. We will be doing some upgrading soon and the mattresses will be a part of that. Please do come and try us again.

This is a small, but very neat and clean little roadside motel. The owner is a nice hands on guy who really cares about his place and his customers. He keeps the rooms very clean and nicely furnished. We've stayed here several times just for a night on our way back from a Florida vacation. We love Chimney Rock Village and Lake Lure for its beauty and charm and this little motel with a nice view of the waterfall flowing off the mountain. Try it for a night or two and see if you don't agree. I strongly support and recommend this place and it's Owner!!!

The hotel is older but clean! You can hear everything, especially traffic because it's close to the road. Nice, small, clean place and very close to Chimney Rock! This is an older place with "classic" A/C window unit and roll around heater.
