My husband & I took a spontaneous trip to Chimney Rock. We reviewed the photos of River House online & we were impressed by what we saw. When we arrived there, Rondi showed us some rooms & we decided on, "The River Runs Through It." We had our own deck overlooking the river & it was exactly what we were...

So, my husband is not a B & B guy. I said, come on give it a chance. We did and he is converted (at least to River House). The owners are truly down to earth warm people (Rondi is generally the one there and she is so cool). You feel like you are staying with friends. That being said,...

My husband & I arrived later than expected at night & Rhondi (Owner) met us there, showed us around & made us feel right at home. What a beautiful, relaxing stay it was. The room was clean & comfortable. Our room was called, "River Runs Through" & the sound of the rapid flowing river behind us made it so easy...

This was my first B&B so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a pleasant hostess, Rondi, and a wonderful room on the river, Dirty Dancing room. The room itself was fantastic! The bed was more than comfortable and the linens were so soft. I When you get in bed you can hear the sound of the...

This place is perfect for rest and relaxation. The accommodations were perfect. Sitting by the stream, hearing the water right outside your window, or door. The owner Rhondi Jennings, made our time spent very nice, she was so helpful, and made sure all our needs were met. I would recommend this place to anyone, who wants all the best you...

I just love this small town in the mountains. The thing that makes it just perfect is staying at the River House B&B. Not only is everything about the property just amazing, the owners are so nice and caring that you just don't want to leave... we will be back for a 3rd time VERY soon!!!

This is our second stay at River House at Chimney Rock. We decided to add an additional night to the stay to relax from the Festival work. As it was last May, the property and owner could not be better. You can walk to all that Chimney Rock has to offer. Lake Lure is only a mile or so away...

Thoroughly enjoyed this lovely B&B, on the banks of the Broad River and with views of the Chimney Rock Mountains. Accommodations and hospitality were above expectations and made for a unique experience. Also River House is very convenient to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park as well as the village shops.

“The Dirty Dancing Room was our favorite! It has a porch situated directly over The Hickory Nut Gorge.”
  • The beautiful view from our private porch and room window.
  • It was our 15th anniversary! We found this welcome sign in our room!
  • And fresh flowers!
  • This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!
  • We spent a lot of time listening to the rushing water sound and relaxing on the covered porch!
  • There were two paintings of Cardinals which were my grandma Avis' favorite birds! Happy memories
