Step back in time! Chimney Rock Village is a quaint little town nestled in Hickory Nut Gorge with views of the beautiful mountains all around. We still look similar to when the Stage Coach came through! April's River Retreat is right on the Rocky Broad River in the heart of downtown Chimney Rock. Walk to shopping, the Riverwalk, the beach and water park at Lake Lure, and many fine restaurants. Relax to the sounds of the rushing river and enjoy a BBQ on the beautiful stone deck. Asheville airport is 35 minutes away. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 600911969...Step back in time!

April was a very gracious host. The river view is awesome! Nicely remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. Location is perfect for downtown CR Village. Everything was clean neat and tidy. Beds are comfortable with high thread count sheets. Riverwalk is just steps away from the unit....More
