City: Little Switzerland, North Carolina Property ID: 369426

grand total: From $155 total Per Night

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
    Enjoy a romantic retreat with this 2-bedroom, 1-bath vacation rental cottage in the heart of Little Switzerland, which sleeps 4. Rightfully titled 'La Petite Chalet', this sweet property is filled with charming decor and a Parisian atmosphere that will transport you into a state of European ease. With stunning views of the Catawba Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains from the private tree house, you'll soon fall in love with this quintessentially Swiss and fabulously French traveler respite.

    THE PROPERTY

    Bedroom 1 (Victoria's Room): Queen Bed | Bedroom 2 (Richard's Room): Full Bed

    ‘La Petite Chalet’ is perfect for those looking for an adventure to a mountain cottage filled with charming personality and unique touches.

    The vibrant living room is filled with one-of-a-kind pieces - from the vintage chandelier to each couch or chair you'll cozy up on. This theme is seen throughout the cottage, with modern amenities sprinkled in between so the space is up-to-date.

    As you venture into each bedroom, you'll find that they have personalities of their own. Check-in for the night in 'Victoria's Room', a MacKenzie-Child's inspired haven with a plush queen bed, or in the classically checkered 'Richard's Room' just down the hall, which boasts a full-sized bed.

    Spend your mornings with a teacup of coffee in hand, listening to the local wildlife rustle through the forest from above in ‘La Petite Chalet’s’ private tree house.

    Make sure you take the time to walk the garden paths where you'll find incredible architecture, unique art pieces, an outdoor fire pit for evening marshmallow roasts, and a Swiss waterwheel. You'll be amazed by all the interior and exterior inclusions - Consider it a traveler's respite rather than a vacation rental!

    THE LOCATION

    While this town may be 'little', it's filled with plenty of things to see and do! The "Switzerland Cafe and General Store" as well as "Books and Beans" antique bookshop, coffee and pastry shop is just across the street for your morning and mid day creature comforts, or meet some of the weary travelers in for a pit stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    If you want to spend the day with the travelers, take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway yourself. This national parkway is notable for the winding roads that take you on a tour of breathtaking views and the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina.

    Once you're back and ready for more local excursions, an 8-minute drive will land you in Emerald Village, the premier gem mining attraction in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This historical location has 7 real mines that host underground tours, gold panning, and a chance to prospect for gems!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful Petite Chalet with us. We loved everything and all the attention to every detaii. We love the location - so close to oll the many amazing hikes including the fun hike to the Grassy Creek Falls right here in Little Switzerland. Books and Beans was a highlight!
    Loosing power in the middle of the night was unexpected but What winds! Thankfully you supplied extra down comforters in the closet and a flashlight! We enjoyed it all.

    A Little Jewel

    Dear Jack, on rare occasion one wanders into a setting that is right out of the pages of House Beautiful or Varanda, and is blessed to call it home for a brief period of time. This is what happened to me, after an early morning flight from Florida, and a drive from Asheville. Weary from a long day, I climbed the steps to the front door, opened it, and the interior of this lovely cottage, said “Welcome” !
    Being a decorator, I have a keen appreciation of how much of himself, the owner, Jack, has put into the design and decoration of this beautiful little gem! His attention to detail is apparent in every tiny detail and nuance. This cottage combines the very best in elegance but also extends an invitation to make yourself at home, put up your feet, and relax! It takes talent to combine these into aspects of design with such success. The best of French County elegance. kudos to,you Jack!
    The outside of this cottage has certainly not been neglected, either. Lovely pieces of sculpture mingle with nature to provide interest and beauty. There is a lovely little stream that flows through the property, giving a feeling of peace and tranquility. And what better way to end the day than gathering at the fire pit to roast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate.
    Jack, you have put so much love into the development of this little jewel, for your guests comfort and relaxation. This is home away from home for me and I can’t wait to return.

    Many Blessings!

    Jack, we have so throughly enjoyed our time here in this storybook cottage/ chalet. The area is georgous and there are so many trails and beautiful waterfalls in the area. We will come back again to enjoy our time and some much needed relaxation in the fall.

    We had an epic weekend here at the Chalet. Shortly after arriving we lost electricity one night and although it was cold outside, we didn’t worry - the ambiance made up for it. You home is warm cozy and quaint! This beautiful place will always be special to us, as it was our first time meeting in person. While it seems crazy, it couldn’t have been more comfortable. This weekend would not have been the same anywhere else! The coffee shop across the street was a lovely addition. We throughly enjoyed each other while sitting in front of the warm fire having our morning coffee.
    Our afternoons were spent hiking the local trails. Our favorite hike was Crabtree Falls. The waterfall is georgous, even more the second day with the mist and fog making it as if we were in a fairytale. This experience is one we will never forget.! Thank you Jack. We gratefully appreciate your hospitality. You met....and EXCEEDED our expectations.
    Best, Melissa and Duff

    There's no doubt that this property is absolutely gorgeous! The Chalet is decorated with an incredible color scheme which is very welcoming, spotless and comfortable. We loved our accommodations and used the fire pit once the rain subsided! The glass house seemed like it was on another property up the hill so we didn't want to trespass to get there. We would definitely recommend bringing your own meals either ready made or pre-prepared from a grocery store (microwaveable) since the restaurant across the street is only open a few hours during the day with only one or two other restaurants in the area. We didn't find any restaurants serving breakfast nearby. We were fortunate to attend the art show across the street which happens once per year. There is easy access to Wal Mart so if you are thinking of staying at this property, you have access to a variety of items. Overall, the location of the Chalet is at the center of Little Switzerland and close to all sorts of outdoor activities so if you are contemplating visiting this beautiful little town, don't miss this property!

    Just book your stay already! :) You won't regret it!! Seriously one of The most fabulous places we have EVER stayed!! Clean and so very private. If you love the quietness of the mountains and beautiful views and also have an appreciation for art and cheerful decor, this is a must see. We loved the Gazebo best, but every spot just has character of its own! Unfortunately it rained our entire trip so we did not get to use the fire pit but the host keeps this stocked so you don't have to worry about bringing your own in. We would definitely return to this retreat!!!

    We loved our time at the Fairy Tale cottage. Great character, clean, spacious - all you could ask for with a great location. We brought some wood (although there was some there) for a nice fire in the cool crisp all air and was perfect location to Linville Winery, Orchard at Altapass Pisgah National Forest and Blowing Rock. The town is very small, but across the street is a great coffee shop/book store with very welcoming people. Incredible views from the "tree house" and listening to nature as you sit outside was just what we needed to unwind from our very busy lives. It would be nice to have wi-fi at the house as we had NO reception. While it was a nice escape from the cell service, would've been nice to at least be able to research some of the activities to do via a wifi connection at least. We'd highly recommend this to a couple or family.

    This was exactly as it was advertised. Such a beautiful, charming cottage with breathtaking views all around the area. The home was tastefully decorated and had everything you would need for a vacation. The glass gazebo was so peaceful and great for reading and enjoying the woodland views. Our host was wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed. This is definately our "go to" place when we are in the Little Switzerland area.
