About the Property
Beautifully renovated riverfront mountain home in Chimney Rock/Lake Lure/West.NC
We are offering the River House for rent for family reunions, get togethers, golf groups, women's shopping/antique trips, and more. If you have an idea for a gathering and need information about amenities, restaurants, activities, etc...please feel free to ask...we can help you plan an event.
The River House is built on the river with Chimney Rock in view from the deck. (The entrance to Chimney Rock State Park is 2/10ths of a mile from our front door. There are 3 stories of guest rooms and baths totally 9 bedrooms and 6 baths. The lowest level has three bedrooms, each with a private bath and a separate entrance to a deck at river level. The main floor at street level has a cozy living room with a fireplace, a kitchen and a 9 foot dining room table with lots of room for a large family. The kitchen and dining room each have double french doors which open to a large and spacious riverfront private deck. This deck has a large grill and has plenty of outdoor tables, rockers, and nine foot umbrellas that make it perfect sitting outside visiting and listening to the river below. The main floor also has a large master bedroom and bath. This room has a huge picture window and sitting area perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening while watching the beautiful Rocky Broad River out the window. The second floor includes five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of these bedrooms can be combined into a suite with its own door and bathroom. The other end of the hall has 3 bedrooms (2 you can open the windows and sleep with the sound of the river at night) and one bath and can be closed off as a suite.
The hardwood (heart pine) floors are original from the 1940's and were cut down across the river and floated over during construction years ago and are on all levels and have been refinished during the renovation of the property 2 1/2 years ago. The main floor living room includes a beautiful rock fireplace for chilly evenings. The main floor deck, accessible from the kitchen and dining room, overlooks the Rocky Broad River and sits beneath Chimney Rock. It's perfect for outdoor dining and relaxing after a fun day on the lake, hiking, cycling, or simply putting the computer and cellphone away and reading a book. Most families gather and visit out on this deck. There is plenty of seating and a large grill for feeding a large group. There are multiple views of the river and Chimney Rock from the bedrooms and decks of the RIver House. You 'll also enjoy the serenity and calming sound of the Rocky Broad River.
We have 6 bedrooms with king size beds, one room with two twin beds (they can be pushed together if necessary for a couple), and two bedrooms have queen size beds. Most of the bedrooms have a great view of the river and you can sleep with the windows open at night and hear the river outside your window. (We do have two very large central AC units though!) The kitchen has been renovated and has stainless steel appliances and reclaimed wood countertops. We utilized reclaimed wood throughout the renovation, including the fireplace mantle and the kitchen and dining room tables. The original heart pine floors are also restored to bring out the beauty of the natural wood grain. Concepts of reuse, recycle, and re-purpose have been incorporated to make our home as green as possible. We have also strived to make our home a comfortable and relaxing retreat and getaway! I always tell our friends and guests that there is more to do in Chimney Rock/Lake Lure than there are days in the week you will stay and it's true! I think our home is perfect for a large family reunion because if you have active parts of the family, there is a lot of fun things to do right at your doorstep and if you have older family members who prefer to visit on the riverside decks, they are happy, too! If you have any questions, no matter how big or small, please do not hesitate to email or call and I will get back with you as quickly as I can! Thank you for checking our listing and hope to see you soon!
P.S. If your group is larger than 18, we have another riverfront bungalow directly across the river (VRBO listing #694086) from the big house (RH) and friends with additional homes so we can help you with that!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are a blended family of five with a mom and a dad and three college age sons. We have a spotted daschund named Bella who loves running up and down the stairs of the River House! My husband and I are high school sweethearts who reunited after 36 years apart. He has served our country overseas with his last tour of duty in Afghanistan ending in 2011. He is now retired from the Army and is working in Tampa, Florida. We plan to move to Chimney Rock and become fulltime innkeepers. We renovated this inn top to bottom and you can check out the 'before' photos on the Facebook listing, 'River House at Chimney Rock' or on our Pinterest Page...River House at Chimney Rock. I have recently added more 'before' photos. It has been a true labor of love to work on this charming home that belonged to my dear friends, the Shermans, and to carry on all the happy memories and see more families use and enjoy a home that means so much to me personally.
Why the Owner Chose Chimney Rock, NC, USA:
We bought the River House because I used to live in this area year-round with my son and love the area and love all the activities it has to offer. I think it is one of the most beautiful areas in the country and I find it relaxing and wonderful to spend time there. I also love that there is something for everyone...activities for every type person from a hiker/boater/to a shopper/antiquer or a golfer or boater!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many things to do when staying at the River House. You can go hiking (we have amazing waterfalls!)zip lining, white water rafting, inner-tubing down the Green River, rock climb, horseback ride, swim or fish in the river behind the house or you can just curl up riverside with a good book and then walk one block into town for dinner. Fill the days with activities or just relax and rejuvenate!
