Overview

Spruce Pine Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Newly remodeled for 2015 season! Beautiful LOG Home in Mountain setting...

Come enjoy our beautiful, log home in the quiet town of Little Switzerland, NC. Relax, unwind and reaquaint yourself with nature. Enjoy hiking, rafting, fishing, golfing, and horseback-riding . We're just off the Blue Ridge Parkway with nearby attractions including Gem Mines, Craggy Gardens, Linville Caverns and Falls, and Mt. Mitchell State Park. It's a beautiful drive and lots of hiking along the parkway. Grandfather Mountain is about 30 minutes away.

The cabin is at almost 4000ft elevation, providing pleasant summers with cool evenings and snowfall in the winter when surrounding areas may see no snow. It is a very quiet area without a lot of nearby homes. The nearest 'bigger' town for shopping and groceries is Spruce Pine, NC, less than 10 miles away, via the Parkway.

The cabin uses a well and septic, so we limit the number of guests to ensure the resources are not stressed. With larger parties, we recommend shower/bath times be staggered to avoid depleting the 2 hot water heaters. There is a King bed upstairs along with a twin in the loft area. On the main level, there are 2 bedrooms, both with queen beds and one also has a twin with trundle. Downstairs, there are also 2 bedrooms with the same set up of beds as the main level.. In total: 1 King, 4 Queens, 3 Twins , 2 with trundles. The trundles are youth beds and not intended for adults. We allow pets, with a fee, but do not allow smoking inside our home. There are lots of books for reading and games for the children to play. It is our privilege to share our home with you and we want you want you to feel as if you were at home while staying there, We ask that you treat our home with the same respect that you do your own.

About Lori Vreeland

Our cabin is a Southland Home. We are fortunate enough to have family members who build log homes, so our cabin was truly a labor of love!

Lori Vreeland purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Lori Vreeland chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Our love of the mountains and a desire to have a second home, in a cool, quiet mountain area, were our reasons for building our log cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is all wood, with the exception of one tiny closet, under the stairs. For some reason, code required sheetrock! Otherwise, it's all wood; walls, floors and ceiling! It is located on a wooded lot. But every year we get a better view of the mountain from Mother Nature, as she thins the trees with ice and winds! There is a wrap around deck, with outdoor tables and chairs as well as a fire pit area for cool evenings and making s'mores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your cabin. It was all that we hoped for, both the cabin and the peaceful, beautiful surroundings.The wrap around deck is great. We're looking forward to coming back in the summer when everything is green and lush.

Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! We had plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 children. No problems with hot water. I do advise getting there before dark as the owner suggests. It became extremely foggy when we were about 15 minutes from cabin and we had difficulty finding cabin. In the daylight there would have been no problem! Walmart is about 10-15 minutes away and we were able to get everything we need. Definitely will be booking again next year!!

Owner's Response: Living in the city, we sometimes forget how really dark it can get and the fog only adds insult to injury! Glad you arrived safely and enjoyed your stay. We welcome your return! Joel and Lori Vreeland

Smokey Mts. at their best

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. We had 10 adults, some couples some single and the cabin was perfect. We were able to share space when we wanted, yet get away when we needed to. We ryde Can Am Spyders, so Walmart being so close was a blessing. Little Switzerland has THE best chocolate ever and the roads in the area are amazing to ryde. You have the Blue Ridge at your fingertips, yet some of the best twisties we have ever road as soon as we jump off.

We will be back. We personally much prefer this area over Robinsville. If you are a biker, look up "The Snake and Devil's Whip."

See you in the spring:)

Little Switzerland is the quintessential 'sleepy little mountain town'. There's a quaint downtown with a great cafe, bookstore, and general store. While it seems remote, you're with 20 minutes of 'civilization' for groceries, gas and shopping. The Blue Parkway is minutes away providing access to an array of activities.
