COZY RETREAT NESTLED IN THE MOUNTAINS-WHISPERING CREEK COTTAGE

Little Switzerland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Looking for a beautiful retreat nestled in the mountains or a family vacation getaway - you've found it!

Whispering Creek Cottage located in historic Little Switzerland is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway with easy access to Asheville & Blowing Rock. A gently winding mountain road will guide your ascent to peace and tranquility as you approach this adorable 1915 cottage.

Whispering Creek Cottage is owned by two artists, who have added their own decorative flair to each room. This cozy two bedroom, one bath cottage has a large full kitchen/dining area, nice sized living room and sleeps four adults comfortably. You will love the heart-of-pine floors, the sound of rain on the tin roof, fireplaces in each bedroom, large front porch and original artwork throughout.

Whether sitting on the front porch or napping in the hammock you will be lulled by the babbling creek, which runs along side the cottage. The kids will have a grand time playing in the creek and with any luck will see a salamander or a crawfish hiding beneath the rocks. Summer nights bring promises of starlit skies, catching fire flies and roasting marshmallows in our outdoor fire pit.

The small towns of Marion at the bottom of the mountain and Spruce Pines on the other side of the Blue Ridge Parkway offer plenty of choices for grocery shopping or grabbing a bite to eat.

So whether spending your days relaxing at the cottage or enjoying a day of adventure in nature ... your stay at Whispering Creek Cottage will be one that you will long remember.

My husband and I purchase our cottage in 2006. We have put in a lot of work to renovate this 1915 cottage to make it comfortable for life in the 21st century while still keeping its early 20th century charm. It is a perfect place to get away from your everyday life. We love it so much that we want to share it with others. We hope you consider staying at our lovely cottage.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

I have enjoyed this area of the country for years. My husband and I are both artists and we love the fact that there are so many artist living and working in the area. We also enjoy camping, hiking and fishing and this area is great for those pursuits.

I find that when we stay at the cottage we can fully relax. The fresh mountain air and the beautiful starlit nights amaze us each time we come here,

HIDDEN GEM

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Whispering Creek Cottage. We hope to come back and bring our son with us to enjoy the cottage and all the lovely things to do along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We spent our days out hiking and came home in the evenings to the lovely, quiet cottage. The cottage was very well stocked with basic necessities. We loved the artwork and decor in the cottage. There are many interesting things to look at and we discovered something new every day. We truly enjoyed ourselves at the property and would highly recommend it to others!

WONDERFUL AND RELAXING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the porch and the hammock; I think everyone took a nap in it at one point. The kids were freaking out at first because there wasn't any cell phone service, but they accepted it quickly. We had some of our family from Spruce Pine over for dinner and they all fell in love with the cottage. This is our #1 place to stay when we visit again. Next time, I am hoping to have one day to just relax at the cottage... no running, just rocking on the porch and listening to the creek whispering.

ENCHANTED COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
Spent 4 lovely nights in this artist's cottage and we cannot wait to return. So clean and comfortable and just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We loved sitting on the porch in the morning drinking our coffee and listening to the babbling creek. It was so peaceful and quiet and had everything needed. It was like staying at your granny's house except with satellite TV. We highly recommend Whispering Creek Cottage and hope to get back there someday.

Owner's Response: What a nice response. I have been concerned with motorcycles enjoying the winding road. They can be noisy but entertaining.

Week of fall in the mountains of Western North Carolina. This is easy math. The cottage popped out of nowhere up a quiet winding road. Serene: def. The hammock on the front porch and the creek running by. If someone ever needs to get away or have a centalized place to Asheville and Hickory and then be able to get away from the "busyness" this is it. Have an obligation in the fall of 2013 around the same time frame, so will be back again

CHARMING AND WONDERFULLY PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for privacy and relaxation, this home has been set up you. Artfully delightful embellishments, and very quaint. I stayed in the home for seven months and enjoyed every day there. My only disappointment was the hot tub wasn't hooked up. The owners have really spent their time making sure that everything you need is at hand. My only regret is that I couldn't have stayed longer.

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We have gone here the last two years and are headed here again. My children beg to go. They love it. The house is great. It has everything we need. The kids love the fire pit and creek in the back. They will spend forever there. We also try a different nearby hike each year. It has become our end of summer destination. Thank you for sharing it with us.
