About Robbie Ann Crawford

Our cabin has been host to numerous family members and friends over the last 13 years. We are semi-retired, and decided last year to get the cabin ready for "paying" guests!! I am a retired RN, and Mike is a well water treatment specialist for AquaClear Water Systems. Originally from Memphis, we decided to come to a calmer, slower part of Tennessee in 2000. We took a deep breath, and moved to the mountains! We rented a house in the woods for a few years, to see if I could stand the "bugs & the critters & the snakes". I managed quite well, so we began to look for a property in the mountains. When we found this home, the guest house was a bonus! Now we have decided to let others enjoy the calm, laid back charm of the Great Smoky Mountains.. The mountain valley where we live is very diversified. You will find million dollar homes, and mobile homes, but everyone is friendly, and I have never felt safer anywhere i have ever lived. So come visit Mike and I next time you want a truly idyllic vacation.

Robbie Ann Crawford purchased this cabin in 2003

So much more than we expected !

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, well appointed and secluded. (absolutely no cell service was actually a +) More of a home than a cabin, with Sat TV, WIFI, landline, laundry, attached garage and able to comfortably host 6. Fridge and cupboards were stocked with all the essentials when we arrived and left a true feeling of a home away. Incredible value for the $. Our hosts, Ribbie & Michael, were more than accommodating, going above and beyond by bringing a stack of DVD's and even offering a credit/extended stay due to "bad weather".Totally unexpected and greatly appreciated, Thanks again !

We'll definitely be back :)

Great location, spacious cabin

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here with three friends and it was perfect. Mike and Robbie provided us with more than enough food for breakfast. The cabin was the perfect size for us. The internet/Wi-Fi connection was a big deal for me as I am taking college classes online and it worked perfectly. The hosts were very welcoming and were not intrusive. If we happened to run into each other outside, they would always check to see if we needed anything. Tail of the Dragon is a short drive away. We also went to Gatlinburg to go ziplining and sight see out that way for a day. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone and will definitely be staying there again!

Great stay in the Great Smoky Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were kind and attentive yet unobtrusive. Every morning we got a show of dozens of hummingbirds. We were in the area for the eclipse, and having this home as a base added to a truly magical experience.

Awesome! Just the best!

  • 5 of 5

Robbie and Mike are just the best, most gracious hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

The location was very convenient to the dragon and not too far from the tourist areas either. Just perfect for what we were looking for... access to amenities and natural attractions. Highly recommend Cades cove via the Happy Valley access. Foothills parkway is an excellent artery, and you may stumble across a young family of turkeys as we did.

The remoteness was awesome, as was the hospitality. An excellent value if location is a priority for both adult and child attractions!

Our rental cabin is located 6 miles from the start of the famous "Tail of the Dragon" motorcycle trail. 318 curves in 11 miles thru some of the most scenic and majestic mountains God put on this earth! Several photographers line the route to snap pics of you and your party to "save the moment!" The end of the ride winds up in Deals Gap, NC, where you can stop, rest, shop, and meet new bikers from around the WORLD!!!

Dont forget to bring your camera!!!!!
