Unplug from the world at this mountain retreat located just minutes from the Little Switzerland Cafe in Little Switzerland, NC.
Property hiking, mountain viewing, gem chasing and relaxing are all on the agenda here at Hemlock Hollow. Area restaurants and local watering holes are available should you want to pass on cooking in the gourmet kitchen offered.
2 hours drive from Charlotte and 1 hour away from Asheville - you'll find Lt. Switzerland conveniently located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.
It is a really nice place. The cabin was awesome. No mountain views but the house is secluded and in a beautiful location. Very quiet. Needed a 4x4 only because of the rain. Had a great time making a campfire and eating smore, meals on the deck with the sound of the creek below, and hiking.
The cabin was really nice and clean however you need a 4 wheel drive to get to the house without dragging bottom. We didn't have time to explore the grounds because of limited time and pre-planned commitments.
Quite remote but great to get away from traffic & noise. A little difficult to get here in bad weather I suspect & wouldn't want to have to find this place in the dark! Close to all the area attractions so overall good location to stay. Price reasonable too.
Beautiful, spacious cabin in a woodsy setting. (You'll need 4 wheel drive if you try to go in the winter, though--road is steep, narrow, and windy!) Plenty of fresh sheets and towels for the comfy queen beds. Great kitchen with plenty of nice dinnerware and cooking tools. Large refrigerator, nice gas stove. Oven is small for a turkey dinner, but we worked around that with no problem by staging the cooking. Pretty furniture throughout the house (including a nice big dining room table and comfy leather sectional in the l.r.), but a little spartan on the decor. Would have loved to have a couple additional chairs in the l.r. and some rugs to warm up the look/feel a little. The cleaning crew did a good job in the bathrooms, but did not wipe (maybe ever!) behind objects on countertops in kitchens and there was more dirt in the corners and under the beds than I'd like in my own cabin! Owners are wonderful to deal with when you're arranging your stay.
The photos do not do this property justice, it is even better than we thought. We were impressed by the cabin and the area it is located. The property is very clean and well maintained, the owner and property manager were great to deal with too. Our 2 year old loved the cabin, outdoors, and the games that were there. Wonderful local restaurants and hiking trails nearby. We will definitely be back.
