About the property

Relaxing Rental on the Rocky Broad River at Elysium Lodging. The cabin is 100 feet from the riverbank, NOT water front, nestled in the woods below the Chimney Rock at the top of the driveway. It is just a short walk to the stairs and river front, all on the same property.

Location: Chimney Rock, Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA. Minutes from Chimney Rock Park, one mile from Lake Lure and the beach water park, and 25 miles from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. The Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah’s Casino, Sliding Rock, Tweetsie Railroad, Sugar Beach skiing, are less than two hours away.

Accommodations: Two-story cabin with one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, and great room on each level with laundry and hide-a-bed sofa on lower level. Sleeps two to six. ALSO: we have a new paved driveway! No more issues for any vehicles and comfortable for the short walk to the riverfront!!

Elysium (from Greek mythology meaning 'a place of ideal bliss or complete happiness; paradise:) Lodging offers restful rental at the end of a dead-end street that runs parallel to the Rocky Broad River near the village of Chimney Rock, North Carolina.

The two-story cabin has an open porch on the 'treetop' level with porch swing and barbecue grill. The view from every window is wooded treetops and Bald Mountain. The dramatically illuminated Chimney 'Rock' can be seen in the evenings. The sounds of the rushing river can be heard at night from just a few yards down the driveway where steps lead down to a beautiful riverfront with two swings and a hammock.

The Rocky Broad is wonderful for fishing, wading, duck watching, rock hunting, and tubing and is just a short walk from your door. The cabin is just a few short blocks to the village of Chimney Rock, filled with charming shops and restaurants and a mile from the beach at Lake Lure with boat rental and pontoon boat rides around the lake. Chimney Rock Park offers a day of climbing adventure or just a birds eye view of breathtaking miles and miles of beautiful mountain area terrain in all directions. On a clear day it seems you can see forever. The months of May and October are particularly spectacular.

I would rate it a 4

  • 4 of 5

This was a family get together for the four of us. We enjoyed our stay an had a great time. Very clean and had every thing we needed. Every thing was pretty close by. I have to say this was a very comfy, quiet and secluded. Perfect for two couples. If I had to say one negative thing it would be that the bed upstairs was a bit old and squeaky, but all in all we had a great time. The owner Deborah was very nice and accommodating.

Located on our favorite street in Chimney Rock!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was the perfect layout for us. My teenage son and his friend had the upstairs to themselves and were able to come and go, walking to the shops and restaurants at Chimney Rock. I had the ground level to myself with everything I needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Saw a deer one morning and a wild turkey walking across the property in the afternoon. We were supplied with fresh towels and sheets. We were going to use the pull out sofa bed but it was not comfortable to our liking. We had brought an air mattress with us and that worked fine since we needed 3 beds. In my opinion, the cabin could use a professional cleaning but this didn't detract from a great few days in Chimney Rock!

Great people, great time, great price

  • 5 of 5

A group of four of us had an awesome time. Spent the weekend there, went and hiked chimney rock, close enough so we could do some white water rafting, beautiful restaurants on the lake front and we also caught some fish out of the river (all fishing gear was supplied by the cabin owners). The owners were exceptionally nice and very down to earth. Literally their only rule is, "Relax and have fun." Very clean beds and bathrooms and pretty much all you could ask for and a REASONABLE price. Definitely going back.

A refreshing peaceful three days

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very clean and welcoming. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evenings and were even more excited when thunderstorms came around the mountain. The swings by the river were a nice touch. We just wish there had been a spot to leave our car parked (close to the river swings) so we could drive rather than walk up and down the steep driveway. We will return to this wonderful, welcoming place. Thank you!!!!!!
