Rocky River Retreat - Peaceful Riverfront Cottage Close To Bat Cave and Chimney Rock!

Imagine spending a week or a weekend sitting next to the Rocky Broad River and yet being minutes from Bat Cave, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure Lake, North Carolina. The cottage is 4.5 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 4.2 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, 22.5 miles to Asheville, and 23 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC). Built right at the river's edge, Rocky River Retreat has plenty of appeal for an escape getaway.

Picture yourself enjoying the sounds of nature (four-legged family members welcome) and listening to the rushing water steps away. This is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea. You may want to jump into the river to play or to cool off. 

Basic but functional
It is basic but functional, offering Internet for needed work hours or searching for your next adventure, a true escape from the modern, hectic world. 

For All Seasons
This home can be enjoyed throughout the year with the area's temperate climate and beauty. Springtime brings the blooming of the dogwood and redbud trees as well as the azaleas, rhododendrons, and mountain laurels. Summer brings lush greenery, and the autumn colors are extraordinary. Winters are mild, and with less tree obstruction, the views are incredible. Add the year-round sounds of the Broad River, and you have peaceful perfection!

The Lake Lure/Chimney Rock/Bat Cave area and surrounding communities offer several entertainment and activity options. See the Amenities and Notes for just a sampling of what is available. Just pack your clothes, pick up some groceries, and then sit back, relax, and enjoy all this area and Rocky River Retreat has to offer. We hope to see you soon and welcome you to be our guest!

If you need more space, check on the cottage right next door, Rocky River Retreat II.  Just check the calendars for availability or pick up the phone and give us a call; we are happy to assist you.

Area Wide Notice: Lake Lure will undergo a drawdown from January 1st, 2024, through the first quarter of 2024(March 31st). The lake will begin to be lowered by approximately 1 foot per day until 12 feet have been reached. Infrastructure maintenance, dredging, and dam projects will be expedited during this time frame. These efforts by the Town of Lake Lure may affect access to the lake and restrict any lake usage. For more information, click here. The lake will likely be back up to normal levels by mid to late April. While we understand this is an inconvenience, this does allow you to enjoy the full beauty of Lake Lure in the fall and holiday season.   This will not affect the smaller lakes in the area, only Lake Lure itself.

Smoking is prohibited in all of our vacation rental homes.

Dogs (up to 2) are welcome. Guests are required to clean up after their pets to avoid additional charges.

Parking for two (2) vehicles.

Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. local time or anytime later.
