About Us - Meet the Allens

Tune in, from the rock!

Steve and Shelly Allen have been looking for a small business to purchase for years. They have found it in Chimney Rock, NC. They hope to have many memories in the River House. It is a special home in a charming town.

North Carolina, a Gem in Every Season

The Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is becoming an Allen family Thanksgiving tradition. This past Thanksgiving was our third time enjoying the beautiful lights and artful displays of color at the garden. If that wasn't enough, Santa Claus himself was there!

Northeners No More

The youngest Allen, John graduated from Clemson University in May of 2017. We were able to celebrate his achievement with him.
