Chimney Rock Village

Visit Chimney Rock Village and retreat to a simpler time where the laughter of a child, a friendly smile and the warmth of the small-town lifestyle captivate our guests. Here, you can shop for one-of-a-kind Appalachian crafts, stock up on outdoor gear, chow down riverside with a delicious meal and a craft beer, or buy a unique memento in one of the fun shops that line the village. Slow down and take it all in as you enjoy one of western North Carolina’s smallest, small towns.

Home to one of North Carolina's most beautiful parks, Chimney Rock State Park
You can spend the entire day hiking, shopping, eating and strolling. Drop by lively music venues,
stroll along the Riverwalk, play some miniature golf or just grab a cup of fresh roasted coffee or a cone of ice cream.
