Our first time at a bed and breakfast and it was wonderful! Beautiful home and location on the river. We stayed in the Dirty Dancing Room... Falling asleep listening to the river was perfect! Cell service in the area is sketchy, but WIFI at the house works great for planning out your day. Rondi was a great hostess! Very flexible...

This was by far...one of the most relaxing weekends we have had in a very long time! I will not stay anywhere else but here. The owners are extremely nice and welcoming. The house is so warm and romantic :) The views are breath taking! Food was great! If you are visiting, you MUST stay here. Best place in town!!

We were recently in Chimney Rock NC & guests at River House B&B. My wife & I were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and River House was the perfect setting. From the chalkboard congratulations greeting to the fresh cut flowers in the room, everything was wonderful. We stayed in the "Dirty Dancing" room... with it's private balcony, complete with loungers over...

We stopped by the River house on a spur of the moment trip. Rhondi was very accommodating and so nice. She showed us the room and it did not take long to say we would take it. Breath taking views, the room was very comfortable as well as the bed. We had access to everything in the house and the...

We had the opportunity to add a few extra days to our Spring Break Vacation. We booked the River House at the very last minute. Rondi and Jay were wonderful. The house is located in the middle of a cute shopping district and walking distance to restaurants and chimney top park! Rondi recommended outstanding restaurants. We wish that we had...

The River House is the first B and B i have ever stayed in. Last minute trip to Chimney Rock and found this place on line. Had been through Chimney Rock before but had never stayed overnight.

I want to be selfish and not let anyone know how amazing River House is so we can always get a room. But.... I also can't let the amazing experience we had go without being shared. I have been going to North Carolina since I was a child and staying at River House has been the best experience yet. From...

My husband & I took a spontaneous trip to Chimney Rock. We reviewed the photos of River House online & we were impressed by what we saw.

“The Dirty Dancing Room was our favorite! It has a porch situated directly over The Hickory Nut Gorge.”
  • The beautiful view from our private porch and room window.
  • It was our 15th anniversary! We found this welcome sign in our room!
  • And fresh flowers!
  • This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!
  • We spent a lot of time listening to the rushing water sound and relaxing on the covered porch!
  • There were two paintings of Cardinals which were my grandma Avis' favorite birds! Happy memories
