About Chris and Susanne Andrews
We are so happy to share our mountain retreat with you. We live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but get to our little piece of mountain paradise as often as possible. We love the outdoors year round. Hiking, fishing, backpacking, river rafting, camping, snow shoeing, cross country skiing-our cabin location let's us do all these activities within an hour's drive.
Chris and Susanne Andrews purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Chris and Susanne Andrews chose Spruce Pine
We bought Misty Ridge after visiting the Little Switzerland area for 15 years. We were told of the cabin the day it went on sale as we were vacationing. We saw it and fell in love. Bought it and made a few updates, like adding in a picture window in the kitchen to let nature in. To us the cabin is magical for the tranquility it offers us. In fact, we even got married on our deck! It will forever be a special place for us and our family.
What makes this Cabin unique
We fell in love with this cabin for its large deck and the amazing views it offers. It has a ramp as an option to enter the cabin rather than steps, so we knew it would work for some of our elderly relatives. The inside décor with the wood work and stone fireplace was just what we had envisioned for a cabin. The large windows and skylights lets nature take a step inside.

Beautiful View of Mt. Mitchell
Comfortable cabin on Strawberry Ridge within sight of the highest point east of the Mississippi...Mt. Mitchell.
A delight for your senses!
First time ....in many years renting through VRBO/Homeaway that I haven't wanted to leave the place during the day. Next time... I will stay longer...
From the birds to the chipmunks and that beautiful landscape.... it is one of the most peaceful places I've stayed. Very clean... kitchen was perfect. And if you stay....FEED THE BIRDS... it's like an aviary near that kitchen window. We stayed seated at the bar for many many moments!
Thanks for sharing with us...
I'm still so sad to leave...

Beautiful cabin with amazing views.
We loved our stay at Misty Ridge. It was beautifully appointed with great instructions and suggestions for local things to do. We loved hiking Crabtree falls and just sitting on the deck watching the wildlife overlooking the mountains. We will definitely look to come back.
Cozy cabin with a beautiful view
We stayed at this cabin in July for a motorcycle trip, the road is gravel coming off of the main road but we were able to navigate fine with the motorcycles, just had to go very slow. We had four of us stay and there was plenty of room, in addition to the two bedrooms there was a pull out couch in the living room which worked out great for our son to sleep on. The cabin was stocked with everything we needed, and the kitchen had everything we needed as well. Each bedroom had their own bathroom which was great. The cabin was clean and well kept. We loved sitting on the big deck with the beautiful view of the mountains right there! It was really humid the last few days so the central air came in handy, otherwise we kept the windows open and the cool air was very nice at night. There were a lot of activities near by and the Blue Ridge Parkway was minutes away which was nice for our motorcycle rides. We loved Crabtree Falls which was about 10 minutes away, and also shops and restaurants were minutes away which was great. We would recommend this cabin and would stay here again if we come back to this area in the future.
Way beyond our expectations
We had visited this area many times in the past as my mother was born in Spruce Pine. We would always say that next time we would rent a cabin in the mountains. Well, we finally did and it was so everything we hoped it would be and more. The house was absolutely adorable and had everything you could possibly need. We would visit relatives during the day and shop in the nearby unique shops but looked forward to getting back up to the cabin so we could relax on the deck and drink in the beautiful view. My mom would just walk around the cabin and remark about the beautiful wood and all the attention to details - it was a perfect layout for my mom and sister and I. We were only able to stay 3 days on this trip - we were afraid that my mom, who will turn 100 in Sept., would remark that this would probably be her last trip to the mountains but instead, she said, "next year we need to stay here for an entire week"! That's the plan! Thanks for offering your beautiful home for all of us to enjoy!
Cabin is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy lunch at the Little Switzerland café then take a short stroll to a waterfall. Plan day hikes on the Appalachian Trail. In the fall, visit the Altapass Apple Orchard to pick your own apples. Begin the morning with coffee on our deck and end the day watching the sunset there. Visit Mt. Mitchell and the Mineral Rock Museum. Winter activities include skiing and tubing less than an hour away.
