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.

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.

A Little Piece of Heaven

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.

Wonderful Week

Even though the weather was not cooperative, we had a wonderful week at R Place. It is as if you have been invited to someone's home. Everything we needed was provided and clean as possible. Restaurants and grocery stores are just a few minutes away. We hiked Mt Mitchell, Linville Falls, drove to the Hemlocks Rec area and walked down to Grassy Falls in Little Switzerland. Also, found the trail down Grassy Mtn to the Parkway. We will be back in a month or so for a long weekend.

Thanks again,

WONDERFUL, RELAXING, and BEAUTIFUL haven to escape to

My wife and I spent 4 days/nights there and with each day we grew more and more relaxed! The view is spectacular, the facilities are very nice, comfortable, clean, and most accommodating! The cabin is secluded enough for some solitude, but still close enough that one doesn't feel isolated should an emergency arise. The owner was very helpful and informative about the directions to get there, and there is provided a notebook of nearby restaurants, attractions, etc.

We can't say enough nice about the place, the people, and the stay!
