Chimney Rock Village

Situated in one of the most beautiful natural settings in all
the mountains-Hickory Nut Gorge. Here on the banks of the Rocky Broad River,
which sliced its way through the high terrain eons ago, one can only stand in awe
of the magnificence of nature on display in the rugged cliffs,
the sheer drop of a 400-foot waterfall, incredible rock formations,
glimpses of wildlife, and the joyous rush of the river itself.
