A restful, rejuvenating three days. . .

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with our accommodations. It was peaceful and beautiful. As others have indicated, the view is indescribable. The expansive, panoramic view is breathtaking and as impressive as any we saw along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

We enjoyed visiting the Books and Beans in “downtown” Little Switzerland each morning we were there. We walked to Grassy Creek Falls the first afternoon; hiked to Mt. Mitchell and Crabtree Falls the second day, and Linville Falls the last day.

We cooked breakfast at the cabin and grilled out on the deck in the evenings. We actually spent more time than we typically have when we have taken similar trips, just to enjoy the coziness, the view, and the fireplace.

Rick was very professional and helpful, giving us excellent sightseeing suggestions, and promptly responding later

if we had questions.

We would definitely recommend this as a vacation destination for two people looking for rest and relaxation.

Cozy cabin with spectacular view!!

  • 5 of 5

The Perch was the perfect place to relax, unwind and take in nature at its best. The cabin is cozy, and has all you need for either a long or short vacation. It is less than a mile from the Parkway and although you would never realize it being tucked away in the mountains Walmart is only 3.5 miles away , so very convenient for groceries:). The owner Rick is a great guy, super helpful, knowledgeable of the area and couldn't have been nicer, the experience was so great that we plan to make it an annual trip!! We would not hesitate to recommend the Perch, book it, you won't be disappointed just happy you made the right choice!

Incredible view & cute town

  • 5 of 5

Rick, the owner, super friendly! The home has the most breath taking views! Stars at night and mountains in the morning! Home has all your needs to feel like home. Private and comfortable. Internet, direct tv and a grill. Hot tub was awesome at night under the stars! The town offers shopping at Walmart and a lot of free things to do like hiking, biking and small adventures. If your looking for more hip downtown action, it's about an hour drive to Asheville. Otherwise we were very content doing outdoor things!

Views are fantastic! Easy access. Cabin very clean. Owner friendly, professional & accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

Rick met us right on time. Showed us to the cabin and acquainted us with all amenities, hot tub, etc. He offered some recommendations of restaurants in the area as well as local supermarkets and areas of interests. He even brought us fresh vegetable from his garden. Would highly recommend Perch Cabin. It is 5 minutes from BlueRidge Parkway, close to restaurants and tourist sites yet it is extremely isolated, quiet and the views are phenomenal.

The best view EVER!

  • 5 of 5

I came to stay at The Perch Cabin for my first week of Lapidary classes. Since I was in class most of the day, I invited my parents to join me so that they could enjoy the house while I was out during the day. The original plan was that they would stay the first part of the week and then go home, leaving me there for the rest of the week. After their first day, they made the decision to come back at the end of the week (and even brought my sister with them)! We met Rick at the Little Switzerland post office and he led us up the road to this beautiful piece of heaven! The view is the best I've ever seen from any place I've ever stayed at before. I know everyone talks about the view, but talking about it (and even pictures) does it NO justice! It simply must be seen to be believed. The cabin was cozy and worked well for us; everything was clean and comfortable. My mother, who has loved the beach FAR more than the mountains, had a total change of heart. She said that staying in The Perch Cabin has made her want to move to the mountains! I know that doesn't seem like much, but y'all, that's a huge deal! The house has window air conditioners available, but we never needed them. Between the constant breeze blowing up from the valley below and the ceiling fans in the house, we were extremely comfortable the entire time. I was a little concerned with parking, but there was room off the side of the drive that was ideal for parking (we had 2 SUVs) and room to turn around. The drive up to the house is a single track road, but there are multiple places to pull off if you happen to meet someone coming in or out. I only met people a few times in my entire week of staying there, so it wasn't really an issue at all. With the well stocked kitchen, we made most of our meals at the cabin and didn't miss going out much because we had an awesome mountain view table whenever we wanted one. Rick was a pleasure to meet and was very accommodating. He let us know that he was there for us if we ever needed anything but was never invasive. We even had a vase of fresh flowers when we arrived. After my classes I would come back to the cabin and utilize the hot tub on the back deck to relax in and just soak in the view. It was one of the best weeks I've ever had and I simply can't wait to come back in October to take my second week of classes and stay at The Perch Cabin again. Thank you Rick for allowing us to stay in your little slice of heaven!
