Shops at Switzerland Inn

Unique, seasonal shopping at its best, located directly across the street from the Switzerland Inn and Chalet Restaurant. Enjoy a refreshing ice cream treat with Artesian Ice Cream or do a little shopping where you'll find a variety of hand-made crafts, gorgeous textiles, hand blown glass works and much more.  From the Blue Ridge Parkway, exit at Milepost 334/Little Switzerland, then turn left into the Switzerland Inn compound.
