About Myra Southern and Rob Wright
Myra and Rob are pleased to offer our family cabin, which has been in Myra’s family since it was built in 1992. Rob and I met several years ago, hiking in the Smokies, one of many outdoor activities we enjoy. We were married in the meadow at Owl’s Hoot in April 2012. We live in nearby Maryville and seek every opportunity to “work” at Owl’s Hoot. When we’re not renovating and managing our homes, Rob and I enjoy travelling, gardening, movies, whitewater rafting, cooking and eating, arts and crafts, live music, and adoring our grandkids. Our family includes a Blue Heeler dog, who loves to play in the Owl’s Hoot meadow!
Why Myra Southern and Rob Wright chose Townsend
I grew up in nearby Maryville, and my family has a long history in and deep love for Townsend. My mom, Jo Hendren, founded Hideaway Cottages and Log Cabins in 1979—providing the very first rental cabin in Townsend. She and my stepdad later bought 20 acres in the same mountain hollow to save it from being sold to a strip-mall developer. They divided the property into 11 lots, restricted the design and placement of cabins to preserve the ecological setting of the hollow, and built Owl’s Hoot on one of the lots in 1992. I helped my mom manage Hideaway Cottages for several years. We eventually sold the business but kept Owl's Hoot in the family.
What makes this Chalet unique
We focus on anticipating our guests' needs and providing the amenities you want and need. Spices, locally ground gourmet coffee, and tea; detergents, cleaning supplies, ample paper products; organic, eco-friendly, spa-grade toiletries; and area resource books, novels, games, and puzzles. We have encased all box springs, mattresses, and pillows in bed bug, allergen protective covers. Just think of all the things you don't have to bring or buy or worry about. Now that's value! In addition to our love for Owl's Hoot and its peaceful setting, Rob and I bring unique qualifications to managing a rental cabin and providing the best customer service to our guests. For starters, we own and manage a few other rental homes, and I have 35 years of property management experience. Rob is a home improvement specialist. In addition, I wrote hundreds of articles about decorating and landscaping for HGTV and learned a lot along the way. In 2013 Rob and I took over the management of Owl’s Hoot, which had been managed by two other local management companies, because they didn’t meet our standards for cleanliness and maintenance. We’re always making improvements, but you can count on this: Owl’s Hoot will be clean, very comfortable, and better appointed than most Townsend cabins. All that, in a relaxing setting with beautiful views. What does our experience mean to you? It means that you get attentive, timely service and a tastefully decorated, well-maintained vacation home. Hey, you’re on vacation. You deserve to be spoiled!
