There is a local rock climbing wall which is man-made nearby in the area. There is also one in Chimney Rock Park at the top. Tennis courts and basketball courts are down the street at the City Recreational area /office grounds and picnic area. Boat Tours of Lake Lure are also located on this same property and are lovely. Lake Lure also has a water park with tube slide and other attractions on the Lake. FISHING is right across the main street in the Broad River and locals use whole kernel corn to catch 3 type of trout. The three types of trout stocked in the Broad River are Rainbow, Brown, and Brook. People LOVE to walk down Main Street and just go into all the various shops to purchase items, many native handmade. The Fudge Shops and Restaurants are wonderful. Every type of food to choose from including burgers, Mexican, bistro sandwiches, ice cream, native trout and seafood, home cookin, and Italian. If you love hiking, there are so many trails, there is not room to mention just in the Hickory Nut Gorge area, not to mention the Joyce Kilmer Forrest right outside Hendersonville near Etowah.
While you are in the area, check out Playhouse in Flatrock, NC, Carl Sandburg home and many other attractions in the Hendersonville area.Hendersonville has a 'Little Theatre'.
Back at Chimney Rock, try your hand at GEM MINING at one of the two mining companies. The State Park at Chimney Rock is an awesome place. Climb or ride to the top of the ROCK and see on a clear day for miles in all directions. A snack area is located on top with all glass walls. Take a Boat Tour on Lake Lure while you are at it; very beautiful. Periodically, Lake Lure Ski Club sponsors demonstrations on the Lake and all the skiing you will see is a sight to remember. Try some homemade CIDER and many fruits/vegetables grown and juiced locally and while you pass these 'stands' frequently, try some of the BOILED PEANUTS. They are wonderful. Take home a half bushel of your favorite apple in the Fall. The home grown cabbage is out of this world. I always take several head for friends. Riverside Stables for horseback riding is very near and open year round. Drive is approximately 5-6 miles. If you want a soothing massage or a full day at the SPA, Lake Lure Salon and Spa is your country hideout. Located on the Main St. of Chimney Rock, right across from the Recreational area.

Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: As my husband and I grew up, our families often made trips to the mountains sometimes just to buy locally grown apples. As children we loved to hike in the woods and I especially loved seeing the deer, chipmunks and other wildlife. As we grew up we knew that finding a home to purchase was in our future.
Why the Owner Chose Chimney Rock:
My husband and I chose the Blue Ridge Mountains, specifically Chimney Rock, NC area, because over the last 30 years, it has been the area that we would frequent to relax and enjoy nature. We always wanted a place of our own and purchased the original home in the mid 80's, then late in the 1990's we added on and did a major refurbish. The people in the area are very friendly and welcome strangers very easily. Also, being outdoor spirits, we had so much to do in such a small space. Often times, we brought our boat and used Lake Lure for skiing when our children were young. Our children/grandchildren also love the mountain activities in the Chimney Rock area.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
quietness, nature, relaxation, not wearing a watch or punching a time clock, water sports, fishing and eating the fish caught, smells of the woods/flowers, sounds of the river and birds, mountain temperatures in the evening, friendly locals, boating, eating out at wonderful diverse restaurants, mountain views, festival activities held often, closeness to NC cities such as Asheville, Arden, Hendersonville and Edneyville.
