    The owners bent over backwards to accommodate what we needed. They even printed out our boarding passes. I go to Chimney rock often and will not stay anywhere else. The property is well maintained. Fresh coffee in the morning and right on the broad river.

    Not in your room but they prepare some early in the morning in a room on bottom floor. They ask when you check in if you drink coffee.
