Long time resident of Little Switzerland. I designed and built my vacation rental cabins keeping in mind what I would be looking for in a residence for my self / rental property in the mountains. Enjoy the natural beauty, quality of life and sustainability this area provides. Spend most of my time outdoor hiking and tending the garden..

The Perch Cabin has a prime location and all the amenities including a panoramic view that's unrivaled..

Located on a private road 2/10 of mile with in easy walking distance to the village of Little Switzerland

We had a wonderful stay with terrific views, winding roads, and great food. Rick was a great source of information on the area. Be sure to check out the Knife and Fork restaurant in Spruce Pine-the food and service were second to none! The cabin was comfortable and clean. Will definitely return!! Thanks Rick, loved the collard greens from your garden.

Went with my hiking buddies on our yearly trip to the mountains. For us it’s all about the view and I just don’t think I’ve ever seen a better one during our down time. We made dinner and just sat on the back porch soaking in the wonderful panoramic view from Rick’s house. The internet was an added bonus I’m not use to having too. Rick showed me his other rental and we found him to be very accommodating. Had a great week, didn’t want to leave and I’ll be back with my wife next visit.
Thanks Rick

Had an amazing time

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from an amazing stay at the Perch Cabin. The views were breath taking and the cabin was great. With such short notice Rick made our accommodations very enjoyable. He even got the hot tub ready and brought us some extra firewood for the cold nights a head. We have decided to make this our destination every 6 months. I never thought we would have as great of time as we did but waking up to that amazing view every morning made us get rid of all of our thoughts of the big city, and just relax. Thanks Rick!

Fantastic Place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I spent a long weekend taking in the views from “The Perch” and relaxing in this cozy, comfortable cabin built on the side of the mountain. We loved every minute of it!! The only downfall was that it was only for 2 nights and not longer. A weekend is not nearly enough time to enjoy all of the sights and relax. We came to do a little mining and hiking and didn’t have enough time to get it all done.

The Perch's owner was extremely prompt and helpful during our planning process. After meeting up at the Post Office so he could lead the way, He offered some great advice on some local area attractions and sights. And while we were given the peace and privacy we were looking for, we knew that he was just a phone call away if we needed anything.

The steaming hot tub was great for relaxing after a long day of mining. We got to relax, drink a little wine, have a great meal, and relax for the weekend. I think a hot tub and great views of the mountains are a must for a vacation rental.
This cabin is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and not far from Linville Falls, Crab Tree Falls, Mt Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, and the local mines. There are many charming things to see and visit very close to the cabin.

We would highly recommend “The Perch” for anyone seeking peace and relaxation among the beauty of the surrounding mountains and ever changing landscape.

We will be back for another trip when we get a chance.
I would highly recommend “The Perch” to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
