Tyro cabin description

The building of this authentic Appalachian log cabin has been traced back to the 1830’s. The cabin served as the family home to the Carr's for nearly 150 years. The last member of the family to live here was Annie Carr who left the mountain in the 1970’s.

This is an authentic log cabin! In spite of modernization, it remains much as it did when built in the 1830s. It is built of native timbers and consists of one room downstairs and one upstairs. The downstairs room is a living area with a sofa and chairs, a gas furnace (which is the only source of heat) and a TV/VCR for entertainment. (Note: There is no cable or satellite hook up and TV can be used only for viewing videos. Video rentals are available in office.) There is a kitchenette along one wall and a farm table and four chairs for dining. The kitchenette contains a very small refrigerator and a microwave oven, a four-burner stove with a small oven and a sink with hot and cold running water. (Basic pots, pans and tableware are provided.)

In the 1830’s, there was no indoor plumbing and toilets were in an outhouse. The 1990’s renovation included the addition of a simple toilet and shower room in the corner of the first floor. (The only sink is the one in the kitchenette.) Guest towels are provided.

Upstairs, there are two double beds and one single bed. There is also a comfortable cushioned rocking chair with a side table and lamp for reading. Linens, blankets and pillows are provided. The roof of the cabin is made of exposed wood beams that are covered with tin. If you have never slept to the sound of rain hitting a tin roof you are in for a treat!

There is a long, narrow back porch and a wider front porch with Annie’s Old Rocking Chairs and Porch Swing. The front porch offers a wonderful Mountain View, and you can listen to the sound of the Tye River rushing over rock below! Near the front porch there is a Stone Fireplace for building campfires. (Chopped firewood is available for sale at the office.) There is also a picnic table in the front yard for dining alfresco when weather permits. Finally, there is a Weber Smokey Joe grill and grilling utensils for barbecuing. The yard of the cabin is beautifully landscaped and contains numerous flowering plants and fruit trees and is nicely maintained.

If you are looking for an authentic Appalachian cabin that takes you back to another era, this is the place for you.

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About: Our family was raised on vacations in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camping, hiking and bonfires were always listed as 'our favorite things we did this summer'. It was a logical step to buy a home in the mountains.

                  Why Tyro:
                  Here at The Cabins Crabtree Falls, we found retreat from the hustle, bustle and pressures of life with the sights, sounds and aroma of nature. A short walk from the Cabins is Crabtree Falls, which has largest vertical drop waterfall east of the Mississippi River. The serenity of nature at Crabtree Falls will renews our spirits and lifts our souls.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Located on the beautiful Tye River, the Cabins at Crabtree Falls are just a short walk from the falls parking area. Monticello, Ash Lawn, Michies Tavern and the University of Virginia are just a forty-five minute drive. The falls area is just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
