Overview

About the property

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.

Nice place. Lots of room for large Family's

  • 4 of 5

We had only a long weekend for a family reunion, but there were 9 of us and we were never on top of each other. My wife and I stayed upstairs in the master bedroom with loft which had a king bed and bathroom. My 27yr old daughter slept on the twin just outside our room(loft). Our bed was a bit soft for my liking, but we heard mostly good things from those sleeping on the lower level. The location was only 10 minutes from Spruce Pine and 5 from Little Switzerland. I would not want to try to find this place for the 1st time in the dark, as it's off the beaten path a bit, but once we got our bearings it was fine. We'll definitely be back next year.

Great cabin for a large group.

  • 3 of 5

Cabin was great for a large group. There were several bedrooms that were set up perfectly for families with young children. It appears that previous guests have been pretty rough on equipment. The stair rails were loose, a chair leg was off(my husband fixed) coffee maker broken(my husband also fixed) the ceiling fans were in need of serious cleaning as well as the bathroom on the main level. The upstairs loft bathroom only had cold water. There was a sign stating not to turn on jets in the shower as it will burn out the heating element so appears a previous guest may have done this. We did love the area and the views on the drive up are breathtaking. Be sure to visit the Books and Beans in Little Switzerland!

Christmas Getaway

  • 4 of 5

December 2016

Was very comfortable with beautiful scenery, in spite of the various problems with the well and trash dumpster. Lori was very helpful and tried to make things easier for us. Would recommend the cabin to everyone, if the well is working and there is somewhere to dispose of trash on a regular basis, and you don't have an AT&T phone (no service). Overall our stay was a wonderful Christmas adventure with a few challenges to overcome.

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.
