About John Peters
We fell in love with Renegade Mountain on our first visit in 2009. Shortly thereafter we bought a chalet as a second home and completely renovated it. As an afterthought we decided to list it as a vacation rental to fill in the times we could not use it. It quickly became a major success and we had very few times we could use it personally. In 2013 we purchased and renovated an existing home on the old golf course as a second home that we do not rent. The RavensNest log cabin is next door to our house, and was purchased and renovation begun in October 2014. We had always admired this cabin, but until recently it had never been available for sale. We jumped at the chance to buy it and update it for visits by rental guests and family. We think RavensNest has even more charm than our other rental properties. The cabin itself is very warm and inviting, and the view from the rear porch is magnificent enough to make you consider sleeping outside when you visit.

Why John Peters chose Crab Orchard
All of our properties are furnished as if they were our second home with all the quality and amenities that we want for ourselves. We have not cut any corners and that fact has been noticed by all of our rental guests. We want your stay to be enjoyable and memorable (in a favorable way). Our cabin on Renegade Mountain is a wonderful destination for a honeymoon or second honeymoon, family vacation or a golf outing with friends. Come experience the very unique experience of leisure time on Renegade Mountain. You may decide to become the next resident of our mountain top community. You might be lazy, but you won't be bored.
What makes this Cabin unique
Our cabin is isolated from the real world, yet you are only minutes away from great golf, hiking, exploring, and shopping in the Crossville area if you chose to go there. Ozone Falls is 4 miles from the cabin. The world's largest tree house is 15 miles away, and there are numerous state parks to explore within a 30 mile radius if you suffer from wanderlust. The cabin is uniquely furnished with rustic log furniture, yet has every electronic device you need to stay in touch with the world if you choose. The view from the back porch is breathtaking, with views of Black Mountain, the old golf course which we keep mowed, and some of the best sunsets you will ever want to see. Spend evenings in the hot tub watching the stars, which are amazingly clear due to the 2650 ft elevation. Cook in the kitchen or grill on the back porch. Spring, summer, and fall, dine on the porch and enjoy the view. Enjoy the massive rock fireplace with its gas logs when you feel a chill. This cabin generates a 'Wow' response from all who enter. We invite you to come and experience our hospitality for yourself.

A Visit with Mother Nature
This is just a wonderful cabin! We’ve stayed in so many but this is the first time my husband has repeatedly said “we need to come back here”! We really enjoyed sitting on the back porch reading, relaxing in the hot tub and just listening to birds and wind in the trees. We had all we needed to cook a few meals and slept soundly in the King sized bed. While there are other homes nearby, it felt very private. Communication from the owner was very helpful.
I almost hate to recommend it so highly because I don’t want it booked all the time! Can’t wait to come again!
A great weekend getaway
We came up to Ravens Nest to escape for a couple of days. Mission accomplished. We are “local” but needed the girl time. A lovely setting with an amazing sunset. Thanks John!
Very nice cabin
We fell in love with this property! We absolutely will be back!
Our second time staying at this property and we still love it! The cabin was nice and clean. The view is beautiful. It's easy to find and not far from town. We would definitely recommend this property.
Simple easy stay
Overall, it was a good stay. Fairly clean. If you drive a fullsize truck (4 door etc) i recommend backing in from road.
Very thorough instructions and detailed communication.
This was a fabulous property with a beautiful view of the sunset. It was a little remote for our purposes as we were attending a camp reunion which was about 40 minutes away. I had thought it was just off I -40 when booking. Everything other than the distance and potholes in the 3 mile drive up mountain were great!
Relax in our secluded, romantic, comfortable and well equipped 2 BR log cabin located high (2600 ft) atop Renegade Mountain in Crossville, TN. Located 100 miles east of Nashville, 60 miles west of Knoxville, and 60 miles northwest of Chattanooga, we are centrally located for many major vacation destinations in the Southeast. Located just 5 miles off of I-40, you are only minutes away from Crossville, Fairfield Glade, Lake Tansi, Cumberland Mountain State Park, Bear Trace, more than 15 great public golf courses, state parks, wineries, and antique and specialty stores in the Crossville area. Walking trails abound just outside our front and back doors. Do a lot, or do nothing. Either way you will love our cabin and our location.
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.
Our 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.
