About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled off a private loop on Grassy Mountain near Little Switzerland, a rental cabin awaits you. 'R' Place is a family-owned 3-bedroom cabin named for the Matriarch (Ruby) who envisioned a place of Relaxation, Rest, Rejuvenation, and Refreshing activities. The double-decked structure offers a view of Mt. Mitchell and sometimes a bear and her cubs. It is the perfect place to enjoy a family dinner and a movie or to plan the next day's adventure. Relax in the large Jacuzzi tub and refresh yourself with a good night's sleep in one of the Sleep Number beds.

The cabin is unique with the wood for the interior taken through the whole process by builder/owner Dan. Decorated with a mix of antiques and comfortable new furniture 'R' Place lends itself to be your vacation haven.

Owner info

About the owner: This house is owned by Dan and sister Lois. We fell in love with Little Switzerland while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway. We bought the property 20 years ago and finished this house last fall. We harvested trees from the site and the family farm in West Virginia to make flooring and poplar paneling and cabinets. Both of us are retired teachers and enjoy our time in the mountains with our families.
