Crabtree Falls Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
The Cabins at Crabtree Falls is offering an accommodation that features the best of an antique Appalachian cabin as well as all the modern conveniences of a new home. We located an authentic Appalachian cabin that had been moved from Kentucky and brought it to a beautiful location here at Crabtree Falls. Rebuilt on a new stone and concrete foundation, the old house never had it so good! We then added a modern addition to the back and side of the structure, carefully preserving the historic character of the old cabin.
The original cabin features a beautiful wood-burning stone fireplace that is the focal point of the 'Great Room'. The beautifully restored logs and chinking and the gorgeous poplar hardwood flooring make the original cabin warm and cozy. It also features a front porch with an awesome view of 'The Priest' mountain. Upstairs in the original cabin is a large sleeping loft that will comfortably accommodate up to six people. Both the Great Room and the sleeping loft feature ceiling fans but the entire house features central heating and cooling for quiet comfort year round.
The modern addition features a master bedroom and two full baths, each with a tub/shower combination, toilet and vanity. The kitchen features a full sized refrigerator with ice maker, Kohler double cast iron sink, dishwasher, and gas range with conventional and microwave ovens and plenty of cabinet and countertop space. Off the master bedroom is a sun deck with a charcoal grill and there is a private back yard with a fire pit for campfires.
The furnishings are brand new but are all 'antique looking' to add to the antique ambiance. The beds are iron beds featuring new mattresses, box springs and linens.
This is our premiere accommodation and nothing was overlooked. If you are looking for the best of the old and the best of the new, Richard's Retreat is the place for you!

About Vickie Norman
Our family was raised on vacations in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Camping, hiking and bonfires were always listed as 'our favorite things we did this summer'. It was a logical step to buy a home in the mountains.
Vickie Norman purchased this cabin in 2004
