Property description

Enjoy a touch of history in this charming three bedroom 1780 restored log cabin. Step out your front door onto the brick sidewalk of SW Virginia's oldest and town and most charming town and you 'have arrived'! The Crooked Cabin is a perfect location for exploring our beautiful area. Surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains, the cabin is in the heart of the historic district, close to fine dining and shopping as well as museums and galleries.

An easy walk or bike ride takes you to world famous Barter Theatre and the Virginia Creeper Trail. A short drive will take you to Mount Rogers, White Top Mountain and many other recreational parks as well as the Appalachian Trail. For winter sports enthusiasts, North Carolina ski resorts are 1 1/2 hours away.

Explore the history of area music by following the Crooked Music Road. Visit the Arts Depot and William King Regional arts center as well as the new gateway to Virginia Artisans, Heartwood.

Only 25 minutes to the Bristol Speedway and the many scheduled NASCAR events, guests can also enjoy special annual festivals and events throughout the Tri City Area. The Virginia Highlands Festival in Abingdon and Rythm and Roots in Bristol are two annual events which draw thousands to our area.

A short drive will bring you to TVA lakes and the Holston River as well as other nearby rafting and kayaking centers. Enjoy our lakes and rivers and the many activities offered such as fly fishing, boating, skiing, kayaking, rafting and floatboat rental.

The Crooked Cabin is lovingly furnished with antiques, charming accessories and local artwork. Built in 1780 on the Campbell farm, the cabin was moved to Main Street in the early 1900's and served as a blacksmith's business for many years. Hardwood floors and wide beamed ceilings make the living room a favorite gathering spot. The cozy warm morning heater is a great place to visit with friends and family during the fall and winter months.

Hand-painted walls and furniture add a special touch to the decor. The dining room which seats six is next to the fully equipped kitchen. Fine linens and fluffy bathrobes as well as other amenities make guests comfortable.

The three bedrooms are located on the second floor. Each has its own sink set into an antique dry sink. The house has one full bath with tub/shower and 2 half baths. Beds: queen, double, two twins, plus extra sofa bed in sitting room of master.

Complimentary pastries and juices will be provided for your arrival morning. We also leave guests a supply of coffees/teas and cocoas for their stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: We opened Crooked Cabin Properties in 1995 with the original Crooked Cabin which was lovingly restored and furnished. We have restored 3 more properties, all located in the historic district of town. VRBO 383767

Why the Owner Chose Abingdon:
We chose to buy our properties in the historic District of Abingdon, Virginia because we feel it is important for guests to have the feel of being in the heart of town and having easy access to all the wonderful events and activities that Abingdon has to offer. After staying in cottages in the middle of Colonial Williamsburg and seeing how fun it was to actually be in the center of things...we decided that we would like visitors to experience the same fell in our town.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Easy walk to The World Famous Barter Theatre, Virginia Creeper Hike and Bike Trail and great shopping and dining! We are close to TVA lakes, Appalachian Trail, Bristol Race Track, and the Country Music Road. We provide our guests with complimentary passes to the Coomes Recreation Center, a state of the arts facility just minutes from your door...indoor/outdoor pools, tennis courts, exercise facilities, playground, walking trails and skateboard park. We also provide complimentary pastries, juices and coffees/teas on arrival morning.
