My wife and I decided to take a last-minute overnight motorcycle trip to the NC mtns on an October Saturday afternoon to view the fall colors. Since we didn't have a reservation anywhere (didn't think we'd need one: wrong!), we soon found ourselves scrambling as everything was booked up.
We called Carter Lodge and managed to get a room reserved (the last one they had). The polite young lady working the desk was kind enough to stay up for our 10 pm arrival. We found the room affordable and extremely CLEAN. In the morning we discovered one of the nicest views right outside our door: The Rocky Broad River and Chimney Rock Mtn. There are chairs, a swing, a fireplace and a paved walkway along the river. We enjoyed our morning coffee sitting in the swing watching the river and decided we would definitely be coming back to this place.
After shopping in the village, we had lunch at Heavenly Hogg's on the river. Great food and atmosphere.
Thanks Carter Lodge for saving our trip. Seeya again soon!
