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.
This is one of the best experiences we had so far. The home is very close to little switzerland downtown..so we could get the basic groceries easily as we had an infant with us. There are trekking trails close by which you can enjoy. The home has 2 balconies which have the exquisite sunset view. Also, the home can easily accommodate 3 couples as it has a huge room in the basement as well. Overall, a fantastic experience. I would definitely go back.
Had a wonderful vacation with my children, grandchildren, son in law and my son's fiancée at R Place. What a great experience. It was so hard to believe this was a vacation rental as it felt so much like home. I have rented many times from VRBO but this rates at the top of our vacations. Everything we could want this house had from cooking, entertainment and the most comfortable beds. The kids loved the pool table and games. The adults loved the outdoor space and where constantly on bear watch! Unfortunately it was not to be this time. Dan the owner was very considerate and helpful with any questions we might have. We would like to come back in the fall when its a little cooler next time but will definitely be back.
Lovely long weekend at RPlace. Always in excellent condition, clean and welcoming. Feels like home. Fantastic sunsets and views. We'll return soon.
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.
An amazing home away from home! We would definitely return for a vacation to R Place. Fabulous surroundinga and a retreat for the soul. We loved the location, the views, and the tranquility. Many thanks for a most memorable time.
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.
