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 sole-based tourist economy through the beautification of public and private places, the provision of public access to the Rocky Broad River at designated locations and by providing an overall environment for our guests, visitors and residents.

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


Our quaint village will welcome 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.
