Chalet
Stay in your own little haven -- a stone chalet that was once the Kilmichael Tower. This one bedroom chalet, with impressive two-foot thick stone walls and 23-foot cathedral ceiling, harks back to the days when the Kilmichaels left their mark in history on the Isle of Arran. Chalet Switz today offers Blue Ridge mountain ecology, imaginative architectural design and the perfect setting for a memorable getaway. Located on the very top of 4000-foot Grassy Mountain, the Chalet is a 20-minute walk from Little Switzerland's village center, a historic 100-year old town with quaint shops, homes of extraordinary character and fine and casual dining.

Chalet Switz today offers Blue Ridge mountain ecology, imaginative architectural design and the perfect setting for a memorable getaway. Located on the very top of 4000-foot Grassy Mountain, the Chalet is a 20-minute walk from Little Switzerland's village center, a historic 100-year old town with quaint shops, homes of extraordinary character and fine and casual dining. As you walk down a country road to the village you will enjoy breathtaking views and the countryside filled with wildlife and natural forest, passing a few residences on the way as you descend 800 feet. Your walk can easily be extended to take in a visit to Grassy Falls, about a mile beyond the village inn. Chalet Switz is made of natural materials with the finest of craftsmanship. Cozy nooks and corners include the inglenook with wood-burning stone fireplace and spectacular views of the unpolluted night skies right from your bed! Amenities for your comfort include down pillows, Ralph Lauren linens, and a Kohler Greek tub with hand-held shower in which you can relax and enjoy the serenity. The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator-freezer, stove/oven, coffee maker, toaster and distinctive dinnerware. A pleasant garden surrounding the Chalet can be enjoyed while dining outdoors or relaxing in chaise lounges. Nearby are spectacular hiking, Penland (www.penland.org) and pottery, glass, wood and other fine craft studios that welcome visitors, and the city of Asheville.
