About Ann Cramm
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 Ann Cramm chose Cecil
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

Beautiful mountain get-a-way
The property and location were just great! Tremendous views. Close to Maggie Valley.
Everything you look for in a vacation home.
We were so happy to find this cottage. It was everything you look for in a vacation home. The views were beautiful, it was convenient to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. We have a special needs daughter and it was so easy for her to maneuver in and around the cottage. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage. Ann , the manager was so attentive and helpful. The only negative I found was low kitchen lighting but this not would not keep me giving the cottage a 5 star and we would certainly stay there again. This was one of my favorite places to stay in many years. I highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind review-please come again. I will look into the kitchen lighting-thanks for the feedback.
Great place to get away but very close to town. Hoping to return!

Great house, super clean! Nice location, great decks to sit in the sun or the shade. Mountain sunsets every night! Really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for your kind, positive review-so glad you enjoyed the property and hope you get to come again soon.
We had a very pleasant stay at this cottage. It is close enough to town but still lets you feel "away from it all". It is a perfect size for two to four people, with nice furnishings. Great porch and deck. That's where we spent most of our time. We hope to return! Nancy May
