                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About: The Crabtree Falls Company of Virginia is a Limited Liability Company (LLC) which owns The Cabins at Crabtree Falls. The company is owned by our family. We are The Norman Family and we live in Paeonian Springs, Virginia. (That is just outside of Leesburg, Virginia or about 18 miles northwest of Dulles International Airport.) My wife, Vickie, and I have been property owners here at Crabtree Falls since 1984. In 2000, we purchased Annie’s Cabin, Barb’s House and Jack’s Place from Barbara Otto, a long-time family friend. Vickie is the Vice-President and CEO of RMLC, a direct mail list company based in Leesburg, Virginia. I am the President of RMLC and The Richard Norman Company, a direct mail fundraising creative agency based in Leesburg. When we are not working we love to travel. It is our love of travel that convinced us that we could be good hosts to our guests of The Cabins at Crabtree Falls. We want to provide you with a memorable vacation experience that is everything we would expect when we are traveling. I am an especially picky traveler, so if it meets my standards, it should meet almost anyone’s! We hope you will enjoy your stay with us. After your stay, please come back to our web site and complete the guest questionnaire to let us know about your visit. We want you to visit us again many times and want to know if there is any way to make your next visit even better. Thanks for visiting our web site and we hope to see you at “The Falls!”

                  Why Tyro:
                  Vickie and I have a son, JD and daughter, Beth Anne. The Blue Ridge Mountains, and especially Crabtree Falls, are one of our favorite vacation spots. When the cabins became available to us it was an opportunity too good to pass up. Our family frequently visits here at Crabtree Falls and you may see us around during your visit. If so, please stop and say hello! We want our guests to become our friends!
