Nestled in the mountains of Little Switzerland, NC, this Swiss style Chalet offers fantastic vistas of the Catawba Valley and Pisgah National Forest with mountain ranges as far as the eye can see. With a brand new deck and hot tub, three/four bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 living areas, this unique house spans 3 stories, connected by a custom spiral staircase. Impressive hand built stone fireplaces made from local stone have a chimney that rises from the ground floor to the peak of this A frame. The house will accommodate up to 6 people ideally (can fit up to 8) and has 1 king, 1 queen, 1 full, and 5 twins. If you are a party of 7 or 8, we would like to learn about your party and know the details of who will be staying. We prefer party sizes of 6 or under, but do permit 8 for special situations (family get together, etc). Set on a steep mountain side, this special retreat offers privacy while near to many area attractions. Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, the house is close to restaurants in the nearby eclectic township of Little Switzerland, shopping and more restaurants in historic downtown Spruce Pine, water adventures on the Toe river, gem mining, the Altapass Apple Orchard featuring local music and entertainment on the weekends, hiking and trails, horseback riding at Spring Maid mountain and much, much more. Come take advantage of the cooler mountain temperatures in the heat of the summer and enjoy the breathtaking views. Witness the spectacular fall foliage as winter approaches, you will not be disappointed.

Why Kris & Jim chose Little Switzerland
We fell in love with the beauty of the area, and this property really captures the essence of Little Switzerland. The setting is a dramatic overlook of the Catawba Valley and the surrounding mountain range. In a quiet residential neighborhood, this house offers a peaceful place to unwind and really get away from it all.

What a gem!
This was our third year visiting Little Switzerland and our first staying in this home. We fell in love with the comfort, convenience, amenities, and views this house offers. The location is so convenient to driving to the small town center or hopping on/off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The owners were so nice and responsive with communication. During our stay, a very strong wind storm knocked the power out for about 15hrs for all the residents in the area. We kept a fire going in the fireplace and were fine. The owners were helpful with tips about firewood, candles, water contingency, etc... We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next one!
Breathtaking Inside and Out
Who needs to go anywhere when you have views like this and such a charming and quaint place to stay? You are literally on top/side of mountain with no obstructions of the scenic mountains--large deck wraps around one side of chalet, all window A-frame for views, and even an extra deck along a path not far from chalet with spectacular views.. Situated near the parkway and not far from many attractions (hiking, mining, winery, apple orchards, brewery, fresco, antiques, etc.).
Absolutely wonderful: owners, Chalet and view of the Blue Ridge Mountains!
Kris was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She treated us like friends that she was happy to welcome into her family's home.
Our family owns rental property and we appreciate that...
My family would stay in their Chalet again in a heart beat!!!
The Chalet has a lot of character and the games, videos and foosball table were a big hit with our 7 and 3 1/2 year olds.
We only marveled at the original dollhouse replica of the Chalet after fixing the disheveled dollhouse furniture arrangement, clearly left that way by prior renters.
The Chalet was spotless.
What will surprise you is that the mountain views far exceed the pictures you can view online or take and send to your family and friends. You cannot take a picture and convey to someone what you got to see and see at anytime.
We will not soon forget, and as North Carolina natives, that the Chalet is positioned BETWEEN the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Between?
Imagine getting to spend 3+ days, with access to a huge deck, that has the view you pull your car into an overlook to see before getting back in the car to go to the next overlook.
The view is beyond words!!!
I hope to retire one day to a home that has the MILLIION dollar view their Chalet has.
Thank you Kris!
Neat house with amazing views
We had a great stay at the chalet in Little Switzerland. Can't wait to come back!
We stayed at the chalet in mid-August 2016 and it was fantastic. Despite a heat wave elsewhere in North Carolina, we enjoyed perfect temperatures day and night. The house is outstanding--full of character, but totally clean and up-to-date for our needs. The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen were spotless, and the amenities were spot on. The house is close to great hiking, mountain biking, swimming, and eating. We plan to visit again as soon as possible.
You can't get a better view of the mountains!
If you want to enjoy a wonderful view and a cool evening breeze this is the place. Overall nicely appointed. Very comfortable sofa and chair on the main level. Main level bedroom can use new larger bed and mattress. I think the daybed makes the room a bit crowded. One in our party stayed on the lower level, but we were mostly on the main level. We did buy some charcoal for the grill and grill some steaks on the driveway around back. Worked well as we just added some foil and was an easy clean up. We were careful to avoid using too much water as there is currently a drought, but this did not hurt our stay at all.
It's worth a trip just to sit on that beautiful wide deck watch the hummingbirds and view the mountains.
