Come stay and relax in our romantic, newly renovated 1900 sq ft luxury condominium located high (2600 ft) on Renegade Mountain in Crab Orchard, TN. Our condo is located beside the 18th green of Renegade National Golf Course (currently undergoing renovation). We are located 100 miles east of Nashville, 60 miles west of Knoxville, and 60 miles northwest of Chattanooga.

Our condo is centrally located for many major vacation destinations in the Southeast. Located just 5 miles off of I-40 (exit 329), you are only minutes away from Crossville, Fairfield Glade, and numerous great public golf courses, state parks, wineries, and great shopping in Crossville and surrounding areas.

Our guests receive guest rates and tee times at the 5 Fairfield Glade golf courses (Stonehenge, Druid Hills, Heatherhurst Crag, Heatherhurst Brae, and Dorchester).

You also have the use of all other regular Fairfield Glade amenities and activities including the community center, pool, and marina with your free guest pass.

Day trips to Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg (1 1/2 hours east on I-40) are a great way to see these sights without fighting the large crowds and commercialism during the rest of your visit to the area. Nashville, the music capital of the US, is located 2 hours west on I-40 and is a terrific location for live entertainment, great food, and excellent shopping. Sixty miles southeast is Chattanooga, home of the Aquarium, historic Lookout Mountain, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, Ruby Falls, and Rock City. Closer to the condo, you can hike in the local state parks, visit Angel Falls (5 miles) or just walk or bike along the gravel roads and cart paths atop Renegade Mountain at your own leisurely pace. There are also a number of excellent wineries within a short drive of the condo.

About John Peters

John and Melanie Peters live in Decatur, Alabama. We discovered the joy and beauty of Renegade Mountain by accident several years ago. We purchased a chalet on the mountain in 2009, then purchased and updated this condo in 2011.

John is a business owner, golfer, and avid photographer. Melanie is a professional grandmother looking after a herd of 6 (and growing) grandchildren. She is learning to play golf in her non-existent spare time.

John Peters purchased this condo in 2011

Why John Peters chose Tennessee

We love the peace and solitude of Renegade Mountain (and the old golf course located beside the 18th green) and the close proximity to the many golf courses in the Crossville area. There is much to do and see in the Crossville area and we discover new adventures on every visit. There are hiking and biking adventures available the second you step outside and your feet touch the top of the mountain. We invite you to come and experience this mountain beauty and soltude for yourself at our luxurious and comfortable condo. We offer amenities that both husbands and wives will enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

We provide a luxury condo with plenty of room and all the comforts (and more) of home in a remote mountain setting. The condo is close to Crossville and its many golf courses, but still provides the quiet, peaceful isolation of a beautiful, quiet setting. You can lose yourself in nature as soon as you step out of the condo, or stay inside and enjoy all the comfort and convenience of a very comfortable home.

Beautiful, secluded, mountaintop getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is my kind of vacationing. I wish we were staying longer. The condo is so very spacious that it held five people and dogs without any of us getting in each others way.

Beds and furniture were both comfortable and pretty. Kitchen supplied with everything needed.

We will definitely consider this our place

when we return. Hoping it is always available!

Amazing and so relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beyond what my husband and I expected. The pictures do not do it justice. It was beautiful inside. I would love to see what the mountain top looks like during fall season. So comfortable and relaxing for a couple's getaway. The jacuzzi tub felt awesome after long day of golfing. The people around were very nice and respectful.

Very nice vacation condo.

  • 4 of 5

The condo provided most all the modern conveniences that a family would need. It was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the hot tub very much. The weather was very nice. We were very pleased that when we discovered the washer didn't work, the owner had a new one installed expeditiously. The condo is remotely located on top of the mountain with a few other condos but is reasonably accessible to the things we enjoy doing such as golf, shopping, and the playhouse theater.

Lovely condo in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a few days here while our girls were at Flipfest in Crossville. The condo is lovely and has really nice views on a nice night. The history of the area is interesting to read and we hope they get some investors who will rebuild the area, because it's offers breathtaking views.

We didn't spend a lot of time in the condo, but it's a nice central location for short day trips to Chattanooga, Gatlinburg, Knoxville, and Nashville. There is a Whole Foods and a Trader Joe's in Knoxville, only 50 minutes from the condo.

The condo is well-equipped and very comfortable. It does need a corkscrew, wine glasses, and a pizza cutter, but it had everything else we needed. The neighbors were really nice and the area is beautiful. We did not take many hikes along the cart paths but we did walk up the hill to the water tower and the former clubhouse around sunset, which was gorgeous.

When our girls return for Flipfest, we will definitely try and book this place again.

Golf with the boys

  • 4 of 5

Pretty cool place. It was exactly what we were looking for. It's a little further away from the golf courses, maybe 30 minutes, but not bad at all. The view was great. It looks like it is in an abandoned golf community which was too bad because I think the old clubhouse was right behind our condo, that would have been nice ha ha. It was clean and kept up nice. 3 flat screens, comfy couch, beds were very comfortable. We weren't in the condo much, really only used the coffee maker but it seemed like there was everything you would need to make your own food if you wanted to. If I had to pick a negative, the water pressure was lacking but it's on top of a mountain so that's what you're gonna get. All in all I'd stay there again next time we come up without hesitation.

Lovely condo with lots of amenedies

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this lovely condo and would definitely stay again. The space was big and had a great view. My children were ready to move in!! My family and I were there to see the surrounding areas for possible relocation. The place was super clean and the beds were comfortable. It was centrally located and nicely decorated. Very pretty and cozy!

I only gave 4 stars for a few reasons. A few things you should know when you stay.... The wind is very strong up there on the mountain. I would guess that is why they are putting a wind energy farm in Crab Orchard. It blows really strong at night and against the backside of the condo. It is really loud. I had a difficult time sleeping soundly due to it. I am usually a very sound sleeper so it made it difficult to rest.

The master bathroom was very dark, could barely see in the shower. There were several light bulbs out including the one in the heater, which really effected the lighting in there.

There is no instructions on how to use the hot tub/jacuzzi. We had to call the grounds keeper. Luckily there was someone there who could turn the water back on to the tub (which wasn't located in the condo) so we could fill it. Which brings me to the next part, there was maintanence being done to the place while we were there, yet the grounds were full of downed branches and tree limbs. We had to move several in order to park.

A few things I could suggest the condo needs: pizza cutter, instructions on how to operate the hot tub, coffee maker, stove (I live in FL, we use electric appliances and the stove is gas) and the fireplace.

Owner's Response: The wind can be strong at the top of the mountain, although no other renter has complained. This is basically the first mountain the wind will encounter east of the Rockies, so there is nothing to slow a strong wind down coming up the mountain. It is generally a breeze, not a wind, which is greatly appreciated in summer.. There was maintenance being done on the exterior of the condo by a contractor. He was not a property employee and was hired to fix a few problems on the exterior of the condo. There had been an severe ice storm on top of the mountain earlier in the week of this visit, and there was no time to remove the downed trees around the condo before the guest arrived. This is a mountaintop condo and the weather can be pretty tough at times during the winter. The Jacuzzi was an oversight on my part. It had been turned off for preventive maintenance, and I did not get it turned back on before this guest arrived. John Peters Condo Owner

We are centrally located among 15 great golf courses, Cumberland Mountain State Park, Cumberland Trail State Park, and a number of local attractions.
