Best place to stay in Chimney Rock. Stayed here before and will stay here again time and time again. From the hospitality of Rondi to the quant at home feeling you get from the rooms this place is everything you could ask for when wanting to get away on vacation. Not only will you leave with great memories but you...

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The owner is so caring and sweet and full of great advice about touristy and secret locally-known things to do. The actual house and rooms are beautiful - well-appointed and clean with great views. We will be back and recommend to others. (Also we went in peak leaf season- amazing!)

After staying in another motel down the road for three nights, I needed a night of luxury for my back was hurting from their bed. I met Rondi and she saved us!

We stayed at the River House three years ago to the day on the eve of our wedding. Rondi and Bella welcomed us and immediately made us feel like family in her home. From the bedside flowers to the amazing breakfast and tranquil sound of the river below it was magical! And a special thank you to Jay for tie...

Wonderful hospitality greeted us at the end of an 8 hour drive. Our upstairs room was perfect (spotless, beautiful and comfortable) and the sound of the river was soothing. Rondi served wine and cheese on the deck and we enjoyed delightful conversations with her and some fellow guests. Restaurant and activity recommendations were spot on. Everywhere we looked in the...

We recently stayed at the River House for the first time and loved the experience. We aren't typically B&B people but really enjoyed the conversation with everyone we met. The house furnishings are lovely and our stay in the Rocky Broad Suite was perfect. Our hosts Rondi and Jay were wonderful and we really enjoyed chatting with them on the...

I have thoroughly enjoyed several stays on the main level of the inn. However, my favorite room is the Dirty Dancing Room, one of the two downstairs rooms. The room is just above the river (maximum river sound). Just outside the door, on a private deck, are two cushioned lounge chairs as well as two cushioned patio chairs. I found...

We have stayed here several times, generally in the autumn. The rooms are excellent! I especially love the River Runs Through it room with a little private deck, low down to the river. The sound of the river is so peaceful. There is a patio with grill, lovely kitchen and not a bad room in the place. In addition to...

We recently had a wonderful family reunion when we rented the entire house for our annual vacation. This was probably the best vacation we have had. The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for all 14 of us. This is the first place we have stayed where we could all sit together for a meal. The...

My extended family rented this property for the week, having the entire house to ourselves. While the second B in B&B (breakfast) isn't offered with the whole house rental, we were given full run of the facility so we could prepare our own meals, breakfast included, when we wanted and as we wanted. The home has 9 bedrooms, most with...
