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.

A Wonderful Retreat at Misty Ridge
My wife and I arrived at Misty Ridge the evening of August 23 excited to begin our much-needed vacation. As soon as we stepped out of the car, the fresh, sweet mountain air greeted us. The cozy, charming house was situated beautifully on a hillside with the large deck facing toward the Black Mountains and the setting sun. The inside of the house is warm, inviting, and has a feel of peace and serenity that suggests the hearts of the owners (and perhaps many of the people who are led to stay there). We found the house fully equipped with the necessities and many extra amenities. It is very clean (which is especially important to us). The natural surroundings and occasional wildlife visitors make it fun. We ventured out to conveniently located activities like hiking near Linville Falls, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, and driving over to Hickory to look at furniture. We loved having meals on the deck, walking on Strawberry Ridge, and simply letting our stress fade away amidst the tranquility of this special place. Thank you, Chris and Susanne, for allowing us to stay at your home-away-from-home. It was a delight. We highly recommend Misty Ridge to everyone. Kevin and Kelly Rudd
Peace and Quiet
What was to be a couple's retreat turned into only one couple's "off the grid" retreat. We challenged ourselves to not turn on the TV and enjoy the quietness and peacefulness of Misty Ridge. With no electronics, the peacefulness is indescribable (you must experience it to appreciate it). Ticking of kitchen clock. A variety of songbirds chirping and singing songs of the mountains. Minimal road traffic. A coyote howling in the distance. Choruses of insects gathered each evening to lull us to sleep. We watered the flowers, fed the hummingbirds, fed the squirrels, chipmunks and chickadees. If we had to build a cabin, we'd like it just like Misty Ridge - perfectly designed. We were a tad disappointed with the late summer view, as it was not as amazing as the photos led it to be. Trees grow and have leaves. Certain when the leaves are off the trees the view is better. Still quite worthwhile and we hope to return again soon!
Enjoyed this cabin very much. Very relaxing and love the wild creatures.
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...

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.
