About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Looking for a beautiful retreat nestled in the mountains or a family vacation getaway - you've found it!

Whispering Creek Cottage located in historic Little Switzerland is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway with easy access to Asheville & Blowing Rock. A gently winding mountain road will guide your ascent to peace and tranquility as you approach this adorable 1915 cottage.

Whispering Creek Cottage is owned by two artists, who have added their own decorative flair to each room. This cozy two bedroom, one bath cottage has a large full kitchen/dining area, nice sized living room and sleeps four adults comfortably. You will love the heart-of-pine floors, the sound of rain on the tin roof, fireplaces in each bedroom, large front porch and original artwork throughout.

Whether sitting on the front porch or napping in the hammock you will be lulled by the babbling creek, which runs along side the cottage. The kids will have a grand time playing in the creek and with any luck will see a salamander or a crawfish hiding beneath the rocks. Summer nights bring promises of starlit skies, catching fire flies and roasting marshmallows in our outdoor fire pit.


The small towns of Marion at the bottom of the mountain and Spruce Pines on the other side of the Blue Ridge Parkway offer plenty of choices for grocery shopping or grabbing a bite to eat.

So whether spending your days relaxing at the cottage or enjoying a day of adventure in nature ... your stay at Whispering Creek Cottage will be one that you will long remember.

Please note: INTERNET & Cell Service: We are unable to get Cell reception or Internet at the cottage. (Believe me we tried) You can get WIFI at the MacDonald’s in Marion, the Marion Library (90 W Court St. Marion, NC 28752) or at the “Crooked Door” coffee shop Main street in Marion. A break from technology is the best part of a vacation :) We do have a landline at the cottage & Satellite TV.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I purchase our cottage in 2006. We have put in a lot of work to renovate this 1915 cottage to make it comfortable for life in the 21st century while still keeping its early 20th century charm. It is a perfect place to get away from your everyday life. We love it so much that we want to share it with others. We hope you consider staying at our lovely cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Marion, NC, USA:
I have enjoyed this area of the country for years. My husband and I are both artists and we love the fact that there are so many artist living and working in the area. We also enjoy camping, hiking and fishing and this area is great for those pursuits.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I find that when we stay at the cottage we can fully relax. The fresh mountain air and the beautiful starlit nights amaze us each time we come here,
