Little Switzerland...

With breathtaking views around every corner, waterfalls, wildflowers, gem mines, unique lodging and dining and with many things still handcrafted and homemade, we're one of the last true escapes for relaxation, cool temperatures and clean mountain air.

Little Switzerland received its name from early summer residents of the area who thought the scenery resembled that of the Swiss Jura Mountains. Spruce Pine, with a population of approximately 2,000 people, is the largest town in Mitchell County. Bakersville NC is the gateway to Roan Mountain and the popular Rhododendron Festival.

Mitchell (at 6,684 feet, the highest mountain east of the Mississippi) and 18 additional peaks with elevations exceeding 6,300 feet.
