Swiss Mountain Village

Address: 2324 Flat Top Rd, Blowing Rock, NC 28605

Phone:(828) 295-3373

More a retreat than a resort, Swiss Mountain Village offers daily and weekly rentals. The log cabins at Swiss Mountain Village are built of natural materials that blend into the surrounding environment. Cabin walls are made of rough-hewn logs, complemented by a native stone fireplace. The Swiss chalets feature a unique architectural design. The stairway to the loft actually takes you over the stone fireplace. All of our units are completely furnished with towels, linens, complete kitchens, washers & dryers, and gas log fireplaces. There is nothing fancy about Swiss Mountain Village. Our style leans more towards comfortable mountain home than bright modern condo. Our log cabins and chalets have two to four units per building.

Located convenient to Blowing Rock, near the intersection of US321 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Ski Mountain is just minutes away.
