R PLACE - RELAXATION STATION ON GRASSY MOUNTAIN

Little Switzerland Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Nestled off a private loop on Grassy Mountain near Little Switzerland, a rental cabin awaits you. 'R' Place is a family-owned 3-bedroom cabin named for the Matriarch (Ruby) who envisioned a place of Relaxation, Rest, Rejuvenation, and Refreshing activities. The double-decked structure offers a view of Mt. Mitchell and sometimes a bear and her cubs. It is the perfect place to enjoy a family dinner and a movie or to plan the next day's adventure. Relax in the large Jacuzzi tub and refresh yourself with a good night's sleep in one of the Sleep Number beds.

The cabin is unique with the wood for the interior taken through the whole process by builder/owner Dan. Decorated with a mix of antiques and comfortable new furniture 'R' Place lends itself to be your vacation haven.

About The Owner

This house is owned by Dan and sister Lois. We fell in love with Little Switzerland while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway. We bought the property 20 years ago and finished this house last fall. We harvested trees from the site and the family farm in West Virginia to make flooring and poplar paneling and cabinets. Both of us are retired teachers and enjoy our time in the mountains with our families.

R Place Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had an exceptional vacation at R Place. The cabin is well equipped, very cleaned and fully furnished. The sunset and sunrise views kept us captivated to the next evening and morning events. The owner is very personable and has extensive knowledge of the area. When we come back to Little Switzerland, we will be sure to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Clyde for the great review. I thought several years ago as well as my family enjoyed Little Switzerland, others would also. So I try to provide the best accommodations I can.

Best cabin I've ever stayed at.

The owners have made this place so welcoming. The craftsmanship and the decor are amazing. We loved the privacy and the view of Mt. Mitchell. The cabin is stocked with everything you might need. Even if it was raining you can stay entertained with games, movies, books, pool table and more. I think there were 5 TVs. Great place for family get togethers. There were 3 levels giving each family their own space. The basement even has its own small kitchen. The cabin was very clean and grounds well kept. While there we visited Mountain Goat and Lavender Farm, Linville Caverns, Linville Falls and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We hope to stay there again and would definitely recommend it.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Let's see.......where do I start? Was it the beautiful cabin, decorated as if to say, "Come in, sit down, make yourself at home" ? Or...... was it the view from the balcony of the awesome mountains that stretch out in front of us by day, then when night time fell, the view of the moon and stars shining brightly and looking down on us that gave a warm, peaceful calm inside. Maybe.......it was being surrounded by woods and getting one on one with nature. This week was definitely all of the above and when you throw in the love of family, sharing life stories, and great food it just doesn't get any better than that. If you want the ultimate "Little Switzerland" experience then stay at R PLACE. You'll love the owners too! They are very special people. We had a great time!!!! Thanks again.
