Property Description

What do Little Switzerland and the NY Yankees have in common? This house! Built by a founder of Little Switzerland,it was the home of Louisa DeSaussure Duls,the author of The Story of Little Switzerland.The second owner was Clyde King,a major league baseball pitcher for the Dodgers and successful manager of the Yankees. "Echo Cottage" has been a summer home since being built in 1912.It has been updated throughout the years but still retains the original charm. Plenty of room for family and friends,the home once served as a boarding house during the construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Quaint Little Switzerland downtown, the parkway and Grassy Creek Falls are within walking distance! The separate 496 sq ft. cabin,used originally by parkway workers during it's construction,was later purchased and moved to the property. This house has amazing long distance views! There's a small creek too! If you love history, baseball and Little Switzerland, this house is waiting for you!
