About Ann Adele Smith

Hello! I am an avid traveler with a career in Sports Television & an artist. Would love to share my mountain home with you.

I know you will be amazed at the tranquility & beauty tucked away in this corner of northeast Tennessee!

I am flexible & more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact me!

Happy trails!


Ann Adele Smith purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ann Adele Smith chose Roan Mountain

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. There is also a side deck with a close-up view of a ranch and the mountains behind it. Every window has a view of nature!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Cloudland Cottage is such a wonderful, relaxing getaway to Roan Mountain and we could not have felt more at home in Ann's lovely place. From the moment we arrived and were greeted and shown around, we felt totally at home. Every amenity was provided for and my highlight was sitting on the front porch rocker each morning drinking coffee and just enjoying the sound of the creek! Thank you, Ann, for being the hostess with the mostest!

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!

Cloudland Cottage was exactly as described. The decor and setting were exactly what we hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for four nights and found Ann’s charming cottage in a beautiful setting with a roaring brook across the road and beautiful trees turning color for fall. We also found everything we needed and more inside and a picture window with a million dollar view across a pasture with wooded hills beyond. Morning views through that window left little doubt about the name “Cloudland.” This was a perfect place to walk peaceful country roads and explore Roan Mountain above and the state park below. At night with clear skies from the side porch we saw more stars and constellations than we had been able to see in years. We even saw a shooting star together. Thank you, Ann, for sharing your lovely mountain home with us.

Would move there today!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house loved the view loved the village. Will be going back! Only suggestion I have is maybe have some battery operated candles available. It stormed while I was there and electricity flickered several times. Candles would have been reassuring. Flashlights were good, candles would be better. Thanks for loaning me your home and it was a wonderful experience.

Wonderful time of peace and refuge from life's worries.

  • 5 of 5

Roan mountain and its community will forever stay in my heart. Anne was the sweetest and most accommodating person for my family and I who were evacuating from hurricane Irma. She was super understanding and generous. She gave us an email with all the information we would possibly need to make our stay as we had hoped. She was readily available to answer the information I had overlooked in her email. This place is best enjoyed staying locally, however there is so much that can be seen if you have the need to explore in your car. Thanks again Anne for sharing your sweet and artistic home with us.
