Why Ann Adele Smith chose East

Vintage, remodeled home with modern conveniences. Boho decor for a different take on a country house. Bright, sunny & colorful vibe. Spectacular, lush surroundings, featuring nature at every turn.

The area is so serene you step into another world of calm relaxation.

What makes this cottage unique

The front porch, complete with rocking chairs, is everyone's favorite spot. You can totally relax to the sound of the creek across the street while have something to eat or a glass of wine.

Wonderful cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been using VRBO for over 15 years and I have to say, this cottage is the best of them all! Ann was so wonderful with communication before and during our stay. Her welcome basket in the kitchen was a welcome surprise after our long drive. The entire cottage was spotless and so beautifully decorated. We enjoyed using the fire pit, going for walks around the quiet neighborhood, and sitting on the rocking chair porch. This cottage is very close to Roan Mountain State Park and the Appalachian Trail, and Banner Elk, Sugar Mountain, and Grandfather Mountain are not too far away. We definitely plan to return again soon!

Another great visit to Cloudland Cottage. It's a pretty home in a nice setting. As usual it was also clean and cozy.

My favorite time of year here is late spring or early autumn. The hiking is great and the trails are less traveled.

I particularly enjoy sitting by the fire with a cup in the morning while looking out the picture window at the mist rising over the mountains.

The owner has created a lovely environment. In addition there's a excellent pizza place/bakery in Roan Mountain.

Stay at Cloudland Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I had another great stay at Cloudland Cottage of Roan Mountain.

This place is very clean, cozy, with an incridibile affordable price.

Just a awesome week.

Ann, has done such a fabulous job with the decor. She adds more perfection to her place every year. One's spirts are automatically lifted the instance you get there.

One of my favorite things is walking up the "Holler" or even better is telling friends, and family. That I just walked up the "Holler"

And, if you don't know what a "Holler" is you"ll just have to book a stay and find out!!

A fabulous Accommodation!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Great view from large living room window.

The fall colors are wonderful.

It was quite cool & we used the wood stove 2 evenings. Thanks for the wood.

Kitchen and pantry were well supplied.

We had brought food to cook for our meals, and I caution others to do the same unless you want to drive a long way to a grocery. Local grocers have essentials only and are not open on Sunday.

Close to some great hiking.

Very pleasant cottage with plenty of room fo a couple.

We would like to come back sometime.

charming immaculate mountain cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to the Roan for the last 20 years. We loved the seclusion this adorable cottage offered. Every room was decorated with the host's artistic touch.

The neighboring donkey added an amusing touch. We enjoyed his occasional braying.

We watched the beautiful horse viewed out the picture window.

Well done.

Beautiful cottage but found dead & live insects, dust & hair balls, spider webs, filthy window sills

  • 1 of 5

A message I sent to Ann the owner, after she had made false accusations of smoking and incense use indoors in order to get out of refunding my damage deposit;

From Ann- You broke 2 house rules listed on my VRBO site which stated NO SMOKING & NO INCENSE. We found cigarettes, incense & the empty cologne bottle used to mask the smell. I have photos.

My house reeked & was a mess. You drank my personal wine & it is impossible to believe 2 women could use 24 towels or washcloths in less than 24 hours.

You will receive no refund of any kind. I have talked extensively with VEBO & filed a complaint.

Ann, regarding your outrageous accusations as to the condition of your rental property at Cloudland Cottage, Roan Mtn. Tennessee, on our check out date of 9-9-16. I can absolutely tell you that all smoking done by my daughter was outside the house. I am a congestive heart patient, non smoker and could never physically tolerate smoke of cigarettes or incense in a dwelling that I am staying. We cleaned the house throughly the morning of the check out, I took true photos of everything, every room, including arrival and departure photos, insects, alive and dead, dust and dust balls, filthy windowsills and stained mattress cover. I was so careful and even thoughtful with clean up to the point of putting the used towels in the washer inside a pillow sheet so the housekeeper would not have to so much as carry them. We washed the dishes and put them away, we wiped down all the countertops and sinks. There were no rules as to how many towels and wash cloths were allowed to be used. You generously left a gift basket with a bottle of wine and snacks. There was opened bottle of wine in the fridge, which perhaps was consumed mistakenly when your gift wine was opened and chilled. Your ad invited your guests to the use of unnamed amenities. No new bottle of your personal wine was ever opened. Your comments on the website are just unbelievable and a shock, as well as complete untruth. Whoever gave this false information about the house left filthy and reeking of smoke is absolutely lying. My photos before, during and at check out are ALL time stamped. I intend to compile and send to the rental agency, a letter with proof of photos addressing these outrageous lies with which your name is attached. I am a person who prides myself of integrity and respect for others and their property. I spoke with you each and every text or call with kindness and consideration...
