Welcome to Chimney Rock

The Community Development Association (CDA) was created to promote economic revitalization of the Chimney Rock Village area. The CDA is furthering the solely tourism-based economy through the beautification of public and private places, the provision of public access to the Rocky Broad River at designated locations and providing an overall positive environment for our guests, visitors and residents.

Our location is unique: Chimney Rock Village is situated in the center of historic Hickory Nut Gorge, lying directly below the famous vistas of Chimney Rock Mountain and containing almost three miles of the scenic Rocky Broad River, the prime source for the renowned pristine waters of picturesque Lake Lure. 


Our quaint village welcomes you with its delightful assortment of hostelries, eateries, attractions, shops and services; the friendliness of the Villagers; the permanence of the mountains; and a state park with an entrance right on Main Street. Come linger awhile with us.
