     Description 


Looking for a beautiful retreat nestled in the mountains or a family
vacation getaway - you've found it!

Whispering Creek Cottage located in historic Little Switzerland is
just off the Blue Ridge Parkway with easy access to Asheville &
Blowing Rock. A gently winding mountain road will guide your ascent to
this adorable 1915 cottage.

Whispering Creek Cottage is owned by two artists, who have added their
own decorative flair to each room. This cozy two bedroom, one bath
cottage has a large full kitchen/dining area, nice sized living room
and sleeps four adults comfortably. You will love the heart-of-pine
floors, the sound of rain on the tin roof, fireplaces in each bedroom,
large front porch and original artwork throughout.

Whether sitting on the front porch or napping in the hammock you will
be lulled by the babbling creek, which runs along side the cottage.
The kids will have a grand time playing in the creek and with any luck
will see a salamander or a crawfish hiding beneath the rocks. Summer
nights bring promises of starlit skies, catching fire flies and
roasting marshmallows in our outdoor fire pit.

The small towns of Marion at the bottom of the mountain and Spruce
Pines on the other side of the Blue Ridge Parkway offer plenty of
choices for grocery shopping or grabbing a bite to eat.

So whether spending your days relaxing at the cottage or enjoying a
day of adventure in nature ... your stay at Whispering Creek Cottage
will be one that you will long remember.

     Attractions 


Little Switzerland is one of the last true quintessential sleepy
little mountain towns for relaxation, cool temperatures and clean
mountain air. Over 100,000 acres in national forest and hundreds of
miles of trout streams, our area is an outdoors paradise. Hiking,
horseback riding, hunting and white-water rafting are very popular and
there are several fine North Carolina golf courses nearby. Several gem
mines offer the opportunity to pan for gemstones (a rockhound's
dream!).

The Blue Ridge Parkway, a unit of the National Park System, extends
the length of our area and provides splendid views around every
corner. A visitor information center is located at the Museum of North
Carolina Minerals at Gillespie Gap, Milepost 331. You'll find many
points of interest around our area.

At 6,684 feet, Mt. Mitchell is the highest mountain east of the
Mississippi River, and offers spectacular views, scenic hikes, a
museum, concession stand and restaurant open seasonally.

Crabtree Meadows & Falls, Emerald Village, Dellinger Grist Mill,
Grassy Creek Falls, Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Lake James State Park,
Penland School of Crafts, Linville Caverns & Falls, Roan Mountain
