WOW, BEAUTIFUL VIEWS AND WONDERFUL CREATURE COMFORTS!!!

  • 5 of 5
They say "better late than never" (so sorry Rick). The reason I can still write this review, after almost a year, is because every detail about our trip and every detail of Rick's warm and comfortable home makes me smile whenever it comes to mind along with how kind he was. He even shared some of his wonderful organic vegetables with us (thanks Rick). Also, the reason I am so late writing it is that I thought my husband had done the review and he thought I had and we were both horror stuck that neither had!!! Anyway, all that said and done, Rick was always quick to get back to us and answer ALL our questions and we had a lot:) On our arrival day Rick met us at the post office (easy to find) and lead us to The Pinewoods. How much better service could you ask for? From the moment we arrived we knew we had made a great choice!!! We found the home to be warm and cozy with the wonderful fireplace, (yes, we did use it every night even in August) the comfortable furniture and beds, oh and we never needed any airconditioning! Each evening was spent grilling out on the deck, but not before we soothed our tired bones in the refreshing hot tub with a nice glass of wine. After we ate we sat back with a roaring fire going and reminisced about our day then before bed I was off to my nightly soak in the bathroom whirlpool tub. The bathroom is quite large and has a separate shower which suited my husband. We spent most of our days at the house just relaxing with a good book since we had already been to Little Switzerland a number of times over the years and had done most of ALL the many neat things there are to do there, especially up along the Blue Ridge Parkway (really easy access to the Parkway from the house). This trip was to relax, spend time with each other and just enjoy the peace and serenity of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains and Rick's home affords all of that and more. We loved how private and secluded it was yet we were close to every thing we needed (groceries, gas, restaurants, etc.). I can't express any better how enjoyable Rick's home was and what a treasure he is:) We highly recommend this home and we have stayed in many, some of which, let's just suffice to say I was not too enthusiastic about:( You'd WILL NOT be disappointed with this choice!!! Thanks Rick, we think the job you have suits you perfect, you are a great host!!!

You will certainly not have to worry about traffic disturbing your rest.

THE PERFECT HONEYMOON!

  • 5 of 5
So first let me start with the fact that we spent 7 months trying to find the perfect getaway for our honeymoon. I found Rick's other listing and contacted him for more information, and after I explained what we were looking for he suggested this cabin instead and answered every question I had, and there were a lot. The day we arrived we were so pleasantly surprised that Little Switzerland was so cute and everyone so wonderful and friendly. As for the cabin, WOW! The pictures on here do it no justice and it was amazing! It was warm and comfy, with the most breathtaking views. Rick was so nice and made sure we had everything we needed and then some! The location is amazing and affords privacy while still being close enough to everything. We saw wild turkeys walking in the backyard and deer and chipmunks playing near the back deck. We watched the sun come up over the mountains and slowly light up the valley and fall trees! Rick, we can't thank you enough for making our honeymoon so amazing and we can't wait to come back!

PRIVATE AND SECLUDED DOESN'T SAY ENOUGH

Private and Secluded doesn't say enough
  • 5 of 5
Rick was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We set up our reservation on short notice and he met us at the Post Office in Little Switzerland to show us the property. The place is literally on the side of the mountain. It is awesome. Rick made sure all of our questions were answered and there was plenty of firewood for our stay. The cabin is clean and well maintained. There was even a starter supply of seasonings and other items so that cooking was a breeze. This cabin overlooks the Blue Ridge Parkway and is only a couple of miles(counting the driveway) from an entrance to the Parkway. We took day trips to Chimney Rock, Grandfather Mountain, and Asheville. My wife even said she would go back and she isn't one to go back to the same place twice.

This place is super secluded and there is no chance you will disturb the neighbors or that they will disturb you. It was an absolute blast burning some wood in the fireplace, grilling on the deck, or relaxing in the hottub. Even saw a few deer on a morning jog down Grassy Mountain Rd. Thank you Rick for your hospitality. Hope to be back.

LOVE THIS CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
We had the opportunity to rent this wonderful cabin last week. I can't say enough about the magnificant views from the cabin. Every minute the views were changing so I had to take so many pictures to capture each moment. The cabin was so neat and clean. It was such a wonderful location and we took day trips to surrounding areas such as Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Asheville and Valle Crucis. We also spent much time in LIttle Switzerland at the cafe, general store and the orchard. It was all so amazing. Rick was very responsive to our needs and answered all questions that we had. I would recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to stay in this area. We also hope to visit again someday!

FANTASTIC VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is my third wonderful visit at The Pinewood. The views are spectacular, beds and bedding excellent and the house is kept emaculant. This three bedroom cabin is roomy and comfortable. The owner has an organic fruit and vegetable garden and if you happen visit at the rightt time, he will share his produce with you! What a treat!
Sincerely,
Susarae

THE BEST VACATION RENTAL IN LITTLE SWITZERLAND, NC

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at several places around the Little Switzerland, NC area, but nothing has compared to my wonderful experiences at the Pinewood, run by Rick.

The views off of the deck are magnificent. You have an unobstructed view of the blue ridge mountains at their very best. It's true what they say, about "location, location, location", especially when your'e on vacation in the smokey mountains. Mount Mitchell is one of the many views you can gaze toward while on the large deck drinking a cup of morning coffee, having lunch or just relaxing and taking in the fantastic scenery.

During my stay, most days Rick delivered fresh vegetables he had just picked from his large organic garden. They were so sweet and tender, it was difficult to wait until dinner to cook them instead of eating them fresh when he dropped them off.

The Pinewood was well kept and clean when I arrived and very well stocked with clean towels, etc. Rick also knows of great local places where you can hike to waterfalls or just go exploring. Right down the mountain is a fabulous place to eat...excellent food at reasonable prices. The desserts are all homemade on site and devine.

I highly recommend the Pinewood to anyone looking for a secluded rental, with an incredible view, fabulous deck, very clean and reasonably priced.
