About the Property

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!

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!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
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!
