Riverside Fly Fishing Cottage in Hickory Nut Gorge
Grist Mill River Cottage had its beginnings as one of the first grist mills on the Rocky Broad River. Fully renovated into a charming cottage in 2019, it now has modern amenities never envisioned by its original owners. Today, its river location is more noted for being one of the best fishing spots in the Hickory Nut Gorge. Furnished with high quality furniture, luxurious linens and oriental-style rugs, this beautiful cottage has a laid back, comfortable elegance.
Guests will enjoy lots of privacy with two independent suites, one on each floor, and both having screen porches and decks overlooking the large backyard, fire pit and mountain river. The separate entrance to the downstairs suite is accessed via the screen porch on the riverside of the cottage.
Explore the large backyard filled with old-fashioned shrubs and flowers, and follow the winding stone pathway down to a fishing deck overlooking the clear mountain river with trout and bream just waiting for you to catch! Spend evenings down by the river and build a fire in the stone fire pit with the sounds of the rushing river providing background music.
