Manager info

About: The owner is a businessman who resides primarily in Florida. His work, young children and travels prevent him from spending as much time in North Carolina as he would like, thus his decision to make his property a VRBO. I am Ann Cramm, the happy property manager; I am a full time resident of Waynesville as I have been for 20+ years, and am always accessible.

Why Waynesville, NC, USA:
The Smokey Mountains in Western North Carolina provide some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. Jim's dedication to continuously improving his property and making it uniquely upscale is a testament to his love of the area. This property is located 10 minutes from lovely, historic downtown Waynesville, which being centrally located in Western North Carolina, makes us approx. 40 minutes to Asheville (which boasts the Biltmore House, the Grove Park Inn, just to name two of many Asheville attractions,) approx. 30 minutes to Cataloochee Ski Area, approx. 30 minutes to Cherokee (headquarters for the Eastern Band of the Cherokee, gambling at Harrah's Casino, and golf at Sequoyah National Golf Club,) approx. 1 hour from Nantahala River Rafting, approx. 45 minutes from Smokey Mountain Railway or the entrance to the Smokey Mountain National Park, and15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our location is perfect for enjoying ALL that the Smokey Mountains have to offer. Downtown Waynesville abounds in history and boasts a thriving main street with shops, restaurants, art galleries, breweries and more. We are proud of our two state of the art fitness centers (Haywood Regional Fitness Center and Waynesville Parks and Recreation Center,) as well as our numerous private workout facilities. We are home to the Performing Arts Center at the Shelton House where the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre produces a year-round schedule of plays and musicals which are open to the public.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Jim saw the potential in the property and gradually purchased all three houses, the whole of which is one of the premier estate properties in Western North Carolina.
