About Jerry crawford
We are retired bankers from Nashville.
Jerry crawford purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2014
Why Jerry crawford chose Vanleer
Old house was on the property when I bought it, so I moved it to save and restore. It is one of a kind with so much detail in finishing the home. Decorating it was a blast according to my wife. Watch out for the brown bear standing in the dogtrot.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Private 163 acres to explore. Joins a private 2000 acre game preserve . Visit old house site where the cisterns still intact with cold spring water running 24 hrs a day. Set in rocker on front porch with a glass of wine and chill out while sun goes down and watch kids play in the creek. Very serene.

Best family vacation ever
If you want peace, quiet, no distractions and a beautiful location to enjoy uninterrupted time with your family, this is the place. Jerry and Janice created the most precious retreat for us to unwind and enjoy the quiet and solitude we needed for our Christmas retreat (the decorations were dreamy!). They were attentive and so helpful throughout our stay, and really made the trip special for us. We will be back for sure and have already shared this hidden treasure with our friends in South Florida. Jerry, you will be getting lots of calls from our friends who are looking to stay at your property! Thank you for everything. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Second Stay at the Cabin
Our second stay at this property was just as enjoyable as our first stay. Jerry and Janice are such gracious hosts and really make you feel welcome. The property has a lot to offer and is a lot of fun to explore. We will be coming back for a third stay sometime soon.
This is an absolute wonderful place to stay. It is as close to the smoky mountains as you can get.
This cabin is exactly as described in the listing. Jerry and Janice are most wonderful host and hostess. There were all the conveniences of home. It’s a wonderful place to retreat from the every day hustle and bustle of life. You can play in the creek, you can walk the trails, you can ride the trails, you can fish the creek or you can float the creek. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Janice and Jerry for such great hospitality and a beautiful place to spend the weekend.
Yellow Creek Cabin Retreat...Spectacular!!!
This remarkably restored, one-of-a-kind cabin is located on one of the most breathtaking plots of land in Tennessee!!! The Crawfords have succeeded in creating a private Smokey Mountain masterpiece right here in the rolling hills of Middle TN! They are fantastic hosts who can recount in detail the history surrounding this cabin and the adjoining lands. If you like to retreat in style with all the modern day trimmings and enjoy nature in all its glory, you MUST visit this place!
Yellowcreek really enjoyed having Nanas camp at our retreat. The kids were a blast never seen so much energy. And their first canoe trip was a success with no flips . And a four mile float. And the boys caught their first smallmouth and redeyes.. they left the place spotless and we appreciate the care they took with the house. Johns woodworking skills andMadtha growing up in a loghouse made them. Appreciate it more. Please come back and stay longer. Hope the kids have a great rest of the summer.
Extended family fun
The Yellow Creek Retreat was a wonderful place to enjoy an extended family getaway with three generations. Jerry and Janice were gracious hosts, and our creek float trip just added to the fun.
Photos do NOT do justice to the beauty and uniqueness of this retreat. See it for yourself.
A buddy from the Midwest and I rented for a couple days and could not have had a nicer experience. Jerry and Janice could not have been more friendly, accommodating hosts. The lodge is beautifully and cleverly crafted and feels homey and luxurious at the same time. Gorgeous surrounding countryside. And the fishing.....well, as the locals say, there's really not much fishing TO SPEAK OF in Yellow Creek;)
