Peaceful getaway
I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful setting..the creek is literally at the edge of the great outdoor space. There are some minor amenities my issues- toilet ran very loud, the towels are thin and it’s a little dated but honestly there is absolutely no reason not to stay here (just a heads up that it’s a simple motel with weak Wi-Fi but that’s the case in the area in general) but if you want a peaceful stay that’s convenient to everything in the area with a cup of coffee by the creek or great balcony to watch the sun set on the mountain this is your place!!

This motel is wonderful, the room was exceptionally clean, the bed was very comfortable and the view from the back patio area was breathtaking. The owners contacted us prior to our visit and gave us some info about the lodge and the area. We will definitely be back

10/10 Exceptional

This was the cutest, most enjoyable hotel that we have ever stayed in. It should be called a "Boutique" hotel. The room was immaculate and even "smelled clean". The location was incredible and the owners were absolutely delightful. We were able to walk to all of the shops in the village. Beautiful Chimney Rock State Park is just behind (and above) your room. The grounds were adorable, right on the river, with access to the river where we dipped our feet in cold crystal clear water. We have been to "fancier" hotels with all kinds of amenities, but there was everything we needed. The coffee was ready every morning at 6 in the adorable little snack/vending area. They said for us to fill up our cooler with ice anytime, where the "fancy" hotels fuss if you do that. We would definitely stay here again! If you are looking for a place to relax, this is the place to go!

What I did not like was the "You have to pay for everything you touch" little sign all over the place. Don't do this , don't do that. Made me feel like a thief.
