Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Hi Travelers! We are Lee and Sonya Crandall, owners of the 'Sundowner' cabin. We reside in Clemson, SC where Lee works as a Professor and Sonya is a PhD student. We both have had professional careers in health care planning and public health in Florida prior to moving to the area in 2007. We have an adult son, two daughters, and a dog named Jake who all love the mountains!

Why the Owner Chose Waynesville, NC, USA:
We purchased the cabin as a weekend getaway to the mountains for our family. We enjoy visiting Cherokee, Dollywood, and nearby Asheville. We also have fun attending various festivals in Maggie Valley and Waynesville. We decided to share our mountain retreat with guests in 2014. This year, 2015, promises to be a delightful year in the mountains. Spring in the air and the freshness and the beauty of mountains is all around us!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The moment we saw the great views at the Sundowner we were hooked! It is an awesome retreat and really helps us unwind. We feel close to nature and yet close to so many amenities!
