Lake Lure Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Our bungalow was built in 1922 and was recently purchased by us (We own a B&B directly across the river) and is our personal cottage when we are running the B&B. When we are out of town or our whole B&B is rented for family reunions ( VRBO listing 414879 ), we offer our little cottage for rent. It is called the Little River House and is 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. One bedroom has a queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has two twin beds. Both bedrooms are small, but cozy and furnished cute and are comfy. They also both have flat screen t.v.s as does the family room. The family room is riverside and when the windows are open you can hear the beautiful sounds of the Rocky Broad River in your backyard. This little house has a front screened porch with rocking chairs which has a great view of Chimney Rock (front of the bungalow) and there is also a riverfront deck with two chaises and a grill for cooking. The t.v. room has a sectional which could sleep a small child so the sleeping capacity is 4-5 guests. The house is riverfront and you can fish, wade, hang out on the rocks, inner tube, or swim behind the house. We are walking distance to the quaint village of Chimney Rock so you can walk up Southside Drive over a little one lane bridge which goes over the Rocky Broad River, and right into town to shop or eat at one of several very good restaurants. Lake Lure is approximately 3/4 mile in the other direction and offers a huge variety of things to do. Between Chimney Rock and Lake Lure you can hike, visit Chimney Rock State Park, visit waterfalls, horseback ride, take a wonderful boat tour of the Lake including the Dirty Dancing film site, go wakeboarding, water skiing, kayaking, the list goes on and on. Additionally we are a short distance from the wonderful downtown of Hendersonville, Dupont Forest and its amazing waterfalls, and Asheville which is a great place to visit with a fun downtown with lots of art, music, culture, and great restaurants! There are truly more things to do than time during your week stay at the Little River House!

What makes this bungalow unique

The Little River House has a great location right in between Chimney Rock and Lake Lure and is the perfect escape to a riverfront property. The bungalow is cutely furnished with some custom made furniture and has been recently updated and is constantly being improved. You can swim in the river, come in, and be comfortable cooking in the kitchen looking out on the river or curl up in the newly carpeted riverfront family room and read a book or watch t.v. at night with the sounds of the river floating through the windows. You will be comfortable while you visit and relaxed and refreshed when you return home. We always are!

Cozy Cottage in Chimney Rock

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy little cottage in a perfect location. You can sit outside behind the cottage and enjoy watching the river as it flows or rock in a rocking chair on the screened-in front porch and look directly up at Chimney Rock. We liked the fact that you could walk right over to Chimney Rock Village for dinner or a cup of coffee. Our favorite place to hang out was in the family room which has a full wall of windows which you can open and hear the river. Very peaceful! Although there are other cottages nearby, it is very quiet, and everyone is so friendly.

We only used the master bedroom, since there are just two of us and it was comfortable.

The owner is great to work with!

Perfect cottage for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great experience - cottage was clean and beautifully decorated. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Chimney rock state park right around the corner and Lake Lure right down the road. Beautiful views outside of the river and rocks. Will come back and stay here again.

Just what we needed...

  • 5 of 5

We found the 1922 Bungalow to be peaceful and relaxing. It is tucked away just across the river from main street, but is still in walking distance for shopping and eating. It is comfortably furnished to enjoy TV or just listening as the river flows past. Ms. Rondi Jennings was prompt, courteous and detailed during our stay. We look forward to returning soon and would recommend this to others as a couples get-a-way.

A great little house on the river and I'm glad we found it.

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect little spot on the river where we could enjoy the sound of the water and our son could go out and climb on the rocks and explore. We had a hard time getting him to go do anything else. Rondi was great from beginning to end, even sending a toy in them mail that our son forgot. We will be back again!

Wonderful experience and a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this cottage! The Broad River runs behind the property and my son walked from boulder to boulder up and down the river for several hours every day! A convenient location to Chimney Rock and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We left a small toy and the owner mailed it back to us with no delay. We very much recommend this as a "must" for your next trip to the Lake Lure area.

Car: recommended

We are located in the heart of Chimney Rock Village over a quaint one lane bridge on a lane of summer bungalows and some annual residents. Our bungalow is located right on the Rocky Broad River so you can walk out your back door and fish, swim, and inner tube. There are wonderful little shops and great restaurants within walking distance of our cottage. The area offers ziplining, great hiking, horseback riding, visiting Chimney Rock State Park (our house is 2/10ths of a mile from the entrance. Additionally we are a short drive to the cute downtown of Hendersonville and about a 30 minute drive to Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate and winery, and the Grove Park Inn. There are truly more things to do than time when you stay for a week. You can also just relax from our screened in front porch with rockers and enjoy the view of Chimney Rock or go sit out on a rock in the middle of the river and enjoy the great views!
