Imagine a charming, picturesque mountain house in a beautiful landscape
Step back in time when houses were made from local materials found right on the property. Experience the charm of construction before the days of levels and perfect fits, yet the craftsmanship was so remarkable that somehow things not only fit, but held up well against the trials of time.
As you climb the stone steps in front of the house, note how each step has a different height before you arrive on the stone deck where rocking chairs and a wood bench await your use and delight. A truly great front porch and beautiful sunsets await you!
Inside, lovely rooms will greet you with quality furnishings as well as modern amenities in the kitchen and baths. Started in the 1920s (with outside kitchen and bath during the early days), the house has had several additions as it was enlarged and modernized. Today, it contains 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, large kitchen with dining area, and a large family room. Although rarely if ever needed, air conditioning has been added to insure your comfort.
The house is configured whereby it can be easily enjoyed by 6 people as an extended family or group, or by 2 or 3 couples or family units with separate sleeping areas in the 2 bedrooms and the family room.
Each of the living room and family room are equipped with a television with cable service and a dvd/vhs player. Also in the family room are a convertible sleeper couch and lounge chairs, a stereo system with cd player and floor speakers, and a bumper pool table.The house is heated primarily via gas heaters that helps keep this area warm and cozy even in the coldest weather. An extensive and varied collection of vhs movies are also available for your viewing pleasure.
All rooms are furnished with comfortable and suitable furniture and furnishings, including high quality mattresses in the bedrooms and plenty of closet space.
The kitchen contains all new appliances, including a refrigerator with ice maker, stove, and dishwasher, as well as all normal kitchen utensils, pots and glassware. Stove and oven are gas.
A utility room contains the electric clothes washer and clothes dryer, as well as a gas powered water heater.
One bath has a tub and shower, while the contains a shower.
There is also a ï¿½mud roomï¿½ if needed to clean your feet before entering the house, and this is also a suitable area for storing skis or other outdoor equipment.
Enjoy a unique experience when you stay in this very cool house that is literally a taste of history, but with modern cooking and plumbing facilities as well as modern comforts and features like TV and Wi Fi . It is conveniently located close to stores and restaurants, but in a rural/natural setting. Where else do you get on the Blue Ridge Parkway to get groceries, but you are only 6 miles from a 24 hour WalMart Super Center, and a variety of other stores?

Very nice and peaceful. Judy what we needed. Thanks Judy
Our stay at the Stone House was great. Looks quaint, but has an impressive amount of room inside. It's close to some good restaurants and is directly in between two great gemming locations.
My wife and I were looking for a quiet weekend and Stone Cabin provided that. The owner and property manager were very friendly and provided detailed information about the property and how to get there. Afterward he was very prompt in returning our security deposit.
We felt very cozy and welcomed in this charming cottage there was ample space and the bumper pool is a super fun addition
We had a wonderful stay here. It was easy to find and the owners/property manager were easy to contact if needed. Lots of Little Switzerland is closed in the winter unfortunately, but otherwise a positive experience.
