Parts of the year the B&B is a vacation rental house. We rented it in July for a party of 15. Rondi is one of the owners and was very accommodating! Great location, as you can see Chimney Rock out the back, right above the house. Walking distance to Chimney Rock Village.

This was my first time staying at a B&B so I realized it's not going to be the spotless experience of a chain hotel with hundreds of employees. But it came very close.
