The Innkeepers

Patti was born and raised in New Jersey, but lived in California and Colorado before moving to North Carolina in 2003. She has over 20 years experience in the hotel industry. After receiving her culinary training, Patti opened Lemongrass, a catering and event planning business specializing in weddings and parties. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, decorating, hiking, drawing, and calligraphy. She could spend all day in an antique shop, reads cookbooks like most people read novels and loves spending time with her two beautiful granddaughters!

Patti & Bear

Michael (most people call him Bear) was born in New Jersey, but raised in Colorado. He is a General Contractor and was a chef for Lemongrass. His expertise in building was used extensively in the renovation and remodeling of the inn. Bear enjoys cooking, entertaining, hiking in the mountains, and just about anything you do outdoors. He enjoys spending time with their two labs, Charlie and Bailey, and can’t get enough of his two wonderful granddaughters!

Bear and Patti have been married for 33 years and have one daughter, Christine. They both really enjoy meeting new people, working together, living in North Carolina, and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to share their beautiful mountain setting with new and old friends.

We're happy to

The reasons we moved to
North Carolina!

Our welcoming committee... Charlie and Bailey!

Have you noticed how beautiful the gardens, trails and grounds look at the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn? Well, there is one reason for that beauty . . . Ron Mitchell!  Ron has been manicuring the property for a couple of years and he does a great job.  

Originally born in Selma, AL, he joined the Army as a young man and is now a retired veteran. To our good fortune, he ended up in Asheville and met Bear on a local construction site.  The friendship began and Ron began making his mark on our property with his natural ability working with plants, flowers and rock gardens.  He loves visiting with our guests and has some very interesting stories.  Take a moment to chat with him during your next visit . . . We are very thankful to have Ron as part of the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn family!


The next time you visit the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn, you will meet the newest member of our team . . . Rosanne Dobbins!  She joined us recently and immediately fit right in with her impressive work ethic, high standards and pleasant personality!  She has lived in the beautiful western North Carolina mountains all of her life and married her husband Mark sixteen years ago. 

Rosanne enjoys being involved in her church as well as camping, fishing and boating, but her main passion is her family!  She and her sisters care for their ailing parents, and Rosanne & Mark are the main caregivers for their niece and three nephews.  

With her background in customer service, marketing & advertising as well as her excellent cleaning skills and attention to details, we are delighted to welcome her to the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn!
