Chimney Rock house description
Are you searching for the perfect magical place for your big event?
If you're planning a large gathering and need a unique location that can accommodate 60+ guests, The Camp is exactly what you've been looking for!
The Camp is the ultimate North Carolina mountain vacation rental for family reunions, corporate retreats, church groups, weddings, and multi-family getaways.
Our 4 houses can be rented individually or together for your exclusive use. Together, they sleep up to 63 guests.
Located near Chimney Rock, North Carolina, The Camp has everything you need, including four homes with a combined capability of sleeping up to 63 people, a 5,000 square-foot social hall, a gymnasium with a full-sized wooden basketball court, an outdoor basketball court, an arcade, tennis courts, an athletic field, a heated pool*, an amusement-park worthy water slide, and a fishing pond. The Camp is a pet-friendly, full-fledged dream-come-true vacation rental for groups who need endless entertainment for all ages, coupled with the comforts you'd expect from a five-star resort. The Camp is also an ideal escape from notoriety, offering luxury and exclusivity past its privacy-ensuring main gate.
Cloud 9, the home closest to the deck and poolside action, is an entertainer's delight, boasting a huge screened-in porch perfect for outdoor meals, two family rooms, both with oversized wrap-around leather couches, and a bar complete with a mini-fridge and a wide assortment of cocktail glasses. Cloud 9 is an enormous space that also encompasses 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and downstairs area perfect for the kids. It comfortably sleeps 21 guests. The Owner's Suite is an additional one bedroom part of Cloud 9, with limited availability, and must be booked separately. It is magnificently-appointed with vaulted ceilings and high windows that let the light pour in, a private balcony, and an old-fashioned claw foot tub.
Eagle's Nest is the largest of the 4 homes. It features handicapped-friendly access, separate quarters for the kids, and a luxurious master suite with a private bathroom and stone fireplace. There are total of 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms in this spacious, well-appointed home that sleeps up to 22 guests.
The Cottage located underneath Eagle's Nest, has its own easily accessible entrance and a private covered deck that make it truly separate. It offers a smaller, one-bedroom space for guests who may need more privacy. It sleeps up to 6 guests.
The Pond House is the newest home on the property. It is aptly named because of its location next to the fishing pond. The Pond House is just right for a large family or a group of friends, accommodating up to 10 people, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The open concept great-room of the house gives it a community feeling; while the large deck invites you to relax in a rocking chair and enjoy panoramic views of The Camp and the mountains beyond.
Each of the homes offers something unique to meet the expectations of your group; and each is fully equipped for a relaxing experience.
We also have a Rustic Bunk House that can sleep an additional 60 guests in the warmer months.
Adventure awaits everywhere at The Camp, providing plenty of chances for bonding and character building. Whether it's a group hike to 'the bear cave,' a baseball game on the playing field, basketball in the gymnasium, a jog along the paved path to take in the view of Little Mount Pisgah, an invigorating round of volleyball, or taking in the beautiful mountain views in a relaxing rocking chair, there's something for everyone at The Camp. There's even an old fire truck to add to the jovial atmosphere. In the evening, sitting by the campfire offers warm moments to share memories, tell exciting stories, and roast marshmallows.
The Camp has wireless internet, allowing guests to keep up with their 'real world' connections. A fully-equipped exercise room offers everything needed to maintain exercise routines; including Boflex machines, treadmills, and a stationary bicycle. For nighttime entertainment, there are wide-screen plasma televisions in each of the homes, an game arcade stocked and ready for a ping-pong or pool tournament, or a hot tub beckoning you to come for a relaxing soak. The Camp provides ample opportunity for both challenge and camaraderie, lending the quintessential experience of fellowship that people expect from a group retreat.
The Camp is located near many of North Carolina's most scenic attractions. The heart of Bat Cave is 4 miles away and has a general store and post office. Five more scenic miles bring you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves on the moonlit water in the hit 1980's movie Dirty Dancing. There are several restaurants in the quaint town of Lake Lure, ranging in fare from old world Italian or German dining to casual tiki bar drinks. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park whose main attraction is Exclamation Point, which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining and whitewater rafting. Asheville, North Carolina, a popular destination for entertainment and fine dining, is just a 35-minute trip from The Camp.
That being said, you'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp, making even a day trip seem like too much time spent away from your own pleasure island. Food delivery is available from dozens of restaurants. The Camp also provides plenty of firewood for your hot dog roasted on a stick and gooey S'mores that will make you giggle like you haven't in years.

Year Purchased: 2005
About: For nearly eight decades prior to its renovation, The Camp operated as Camp Mishemokwa where hundreds of children spent summers having all the classic first-time-at-camp experiences. In 2005, The Blum Family purchased the 150-acre property, spending countless dollars and tireless hours rebuilding, renovating, and giving The Camp a new lease on life as an exclusive vacation rental property.
Why Chimney Rock:
There is nothing else like it! The Camp artfully combines luxurious, comfortable accommodations with a 150-acre fun park (complete with heated pool, a 150ft water slide and a huge Social Hall/Arcade/Game Room!) set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you rent a home at The Camp, you not only get a gorgeous accommodation with all the comforts of home (and then some!), but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site (see description of amenities above).
