Can't wait to come back!
Weekend trip to Chimney Rock, and decided to stay a little further away. About a 30 minute drive. We were blown away we we got to the hotel. All stuff was very friendly, and the room was great. Amazing views of the mountains. We watched the sunset on the porch, and were so happy with how peaceful and quite everything was. I kept asking the staff if the price I paid was right. I legitimately thought the price would be double what I had paid.
