This is a non-smoking cabin. Pets are welcome if they are well behaved, up to date on all shots and medicines, and certified flea free. Unruly pets will be fed to the local bears.
Our 2 BR, 2 bath cabin has a well furnished kitchen with a gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, a kitchen bar for dining, and a cozy, comfortable den with fireplace, gas logs, and 46' flat screen TV..
The rear porch runs the full width of the house with a magnificent view of the former Renegade Mountain Golf Course and nearby Black Mountain during every season of the year (except when the clouds roll in and visibility goes to zero). The windows and doors are screened, although bugs are few and far between at the top of the mountain. Even on the hottest days air conditioning is rarely needed, but available for guests having hot flashes.
The open front porch overlooks the driveway and parking area. You can sit in your rocking chair and count the cars that go by in a day in between naps, Normally this will not require using all of your fingers, and never requires all of your fingers and toes.
There is one roomy bedroom with a queen bed on the main floor of the cabin and a second, larger bedroom with a king bed upstairs. Each BR has an adjoining full bath. There is also a loft area overlooking the den that can sleep 2 additional guests if necessary.
We also offer a full sized washer and dryer so you can have clean clothes even if you forgot your suitcase.
The cabin has central heat and cooling, so you will always be comfortable. The unit is rarely needed in the summertime, since temperatures on the top of Renegade Mountain are generally at least 10-15 degrees cooler than in Nashville, Knoxville, or Chattanooga, and the humidity is also much lower. Just open the doors and windows and enjoy the cool mountain air.
For the technically oriented guest and/or the workaholic who needs to stay connected at all times, our chalet has high speed wireless Internet, a computer, and multi-function printer, The den has a 46' LCD TV with surround sound and each BR has a 32' TV. All TV's have a separate DVD player. Telephone service (VOIP), including free long distance, is provided. (Cell phone service, especially AT&T, is not good on Renegade Mountain.) The computer has over 8000 songs cataloged in i-Tunes play lists for your enjoyment.Genres include classical, pop, instrumental, 50's, 60's. 70's - 90's and country. If you like head banging music, bring your own - we don't have any.
Our location allows you to spend pleasant spring, summer, and fall days on our large, open, shaded rear porch reading, resting, or meditating while listening to the sounds of nature and watching the deer in the former fairway behind the cabin . For sore muscles or tired feet, our very private 8 person hot tub offers great therapy under the stars.
The log cabin is very well landscaped with rock features and native plants and shrubs, especially in the rear where you can sit under the trees and gaze at a serene view of the old golf course and adjacent Black Mountain, home of the Cumberland Trail State Park. Swing in one of the old lift chairs from the former Renegade Mountain Ski Resort as you take in the magnificent view. At night you can roast marshmallows and make Smore's around the fire pit. Live high at 2600 ft in our cabin in the clouds.
Our cabin is within 30 miles of at least 10 excellent public golf courses (Crossville is the 'Golf Capital of Tennessee'). We can provide guest passes that offer reduced rates at the five Fairfield Glade courses, as well as access to all other Fairfield Glade activities. Pigeon Forge and Dollywood are 1 1/2 hours away and you do not have to spend the night with 30,000 of your new best friends after your day trip.
Have a 4-wheeler? The are plenty of trails in the area to keep you entertained. Bring a GPS, because there are 10,000 acres to get lost in.
During your drive up the mountain to the cabin, and from our porches once you arrive, expect to see deer, wild turkeys, an occasional bear, and numerous squirrels, birds, and other assorted mountain critters. The only thing that isn't wild is the living. Come often - every season is a different adventure at our cabin in the clouds.

I don't understand 4 stars with this good review. The weather was terrible for their visit but that is not a fault of the cabin. Try as we might, we have not found a way to insure great weather for all our guests.
We generally are not present when our guests are staying at the cabin. We do have a housekeeper and her husband who live on the mountain, and the neighbor across the street also can help guests who may have questions or need some sort of assistance.
We are located 5 miles from Exit 329 on I-40 (Crab Orchard, TN) atop Renegade Mountain at an elevation of 2600 feet. We are 60 miles west of Knoxville, 100 miles east of Nashville, 7 miles east of Crossville, and 65 miles NW of Chattanooga. We are 1 1/2 hours west of Pigeon Forge and Dollywood, without having any of the maddening crowds to contend with. The nearest airport is in Knoxville, TN, approximately 60 miles from the cabin.
Our log cabin sits beside the former Renegade Mountain Golf Course with great views of the old fairways and of nearby Black Mountain. This is a basically undeveloped area. There are only 50 full time residents on the mountain and there are over 12,000 acres of forest you can explore on foot or on 4-wheeler. Hiking trails start virtually at the front and ...
Following are some of the attractions and activities in the area surrounding our cabin. Not all will be of interest to you and your family but some might be.
Best golf is at any of the 5 Fairfield Glade courses in Crossville, I can get you guest passes so you can get reduced greens fees and amenity fees. Deer Creek Golf Course in Crossville right beside the Interstate that might be less crowded, but I don't know much about it. It looks nice from the road. Lake Tansi Golf Course in Crossville has been a golf destination for many years. River Run looks nice from the street, but I know nothing about it.
For restaurant choices, ask our housekeeper or one of the full time mountain residents.
