After operating The Cabins at Crabtree Falls for five years, owner Richard Norman decided that The Cabins needed to offer an accommodation that featured the best of the antique Appalachian cabin in Annie's Cabin as well as all the modern conveniences of a new home.
We found an authentic Appalachian cabin that had been relocated from Kentucky and brought it to a beautiful homesite here at Crabtree Falls. Rebuilt on a new stone and concrete foundation, the old log cabin 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.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen-sized bed for two. 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. Richard's Retreat has a TV with satellite as well as a DVD player for entertainment.
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 cabinets and countertop space.
Off the master bedroom is a sun deck with a table for dining al fresco and another deck featuring a large, beautiful hot tub! There is a private back yard with a fire pit for campfires.
The furnishings in Richard's Retreat are all 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.
For all weekends, we do have a two night minimum for each cabin (you must book a Thursday and Friday, Friday and Saturday, or a Saturday and Sunday stay).
