Grist Mill River Cottage is located on the Rocky Broad River only 3 miles from Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure Marina and Beach. The cottage offers great fly fishing and a huge backyard with a stone fire pit just steps from the back door. Firewood is provided. Beautifully decorated with high quality furniture, it's cozy enough for 2, but easily sleeps a family or group of 7 people. The views and wonderful sounds of the rushing river can be enjoyed from the screened-in balcony off the master bedroom and from 2 screen porches.

The cottage offers great fly fishing and a huge backyard with a stone fire pit just steps from the back door. Firewood is provided. Beautifully decorated with high quality furniture, it's cozy enough for 2, but easily sleeps a family or group of 7 people. The views and wonderful sounds of the rushing river can be enjoyed from the screened-in balcony off the master bedroom and from 2 screen porches. Grist Mill River Cottage had its beginnings in the 1920's as one of Bat Cave, North Carolina's first grist mills on the Rocky Broad River. Completely rebuilt and restored in 2011 and then updated again in 2014 with all new furnishings and fixtures, Grist Mill River Cottage now has modern amenities never envisioned by its original owners. Today, its river location is more noted for being one of the best fly fishing spots in the Hickory Nut Gorge. The flat entrance to this mountain cottage from the covered parking area makes it easy for guests to enter the cottage. Guests can enjoy cozy, romantic evenings before the natural stone fireplace in the living area, prepare a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, and relax in the rocking chairs on the adjacent screen porch or on the huge deck with the sounds of the rushing river providing background music. On the main floor is the master bedroom with a king bed and full bath with shower. The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, beautifully furnished dining room, and living room with stone fireplace with gas logs is also on the main floor, as well as a second full guest bath with tub/shower and the laundry room with washer & dryer, iron and ironing board. The downstairs suite is completely independent from the upstairs and can only be accessed from stairs on the back screened porch. In other words, there is no interior access to this suite from the main floor. This suite is great for couples traveling together as it has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed and a sitting room with a sleeper chair. A full bath with shower completes the downstairs suite. All the mattresses in this cottage are very top quality and extremely comfortable. On rainy days, guests can enjoy 3 wide screen HDTV's with satellite service offering a football package and an endless array of movies and music channels. Use of complimentary wireless internet connection keeps you in touch with the office so no one will know that you have slipped away to the mountains to refresh your mind, body and spirit. More
