Named for the creek that flows beside it, Laurel Creek Cottage is a wonderful retreat beneath the High Knob of Roan Mountain. Located half way between Bakersville, NC and the Appalachian Trail at Carver's Gap, it is a beautiful drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Our area is known for the Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain and for the many Christmas tree farms, as Mitchell County is the Home of the Perfect Christmas Tree. Our communities have great public areas for swimming, fishing, jogging, tennis and bicycling. These creek side and river side parks are pristine and relaxing. Other area activities include tubing, kayaking, gem mining, studio tours for local artists, museums and entertaining evenings at local restaurants and gathering spots.
As hosts to our visiting guests, we strive to make your trip enjoyable and comfortable. Our master suite is a soothing place with a king bed, cathedral ceilings and skylights. The double door access to the creek side deck invites one to explore the outdoors and the nearby waterfalls. Laurel Creek is a native stream. The sound of the rushing water has been a lullaby for many of our guests.
Our guest room has a double bed with a single bed bunk above. Another full bath is right next to the guest room and deck access, just steps away.
The cottage has all the conveniences of home. Linens and towels are provided. The living room adjoins the kitchen and dining area, and there is a 'mud room' entrance for those snowy days.
Asheville's Biltmore Estate is a leisurely drive of just over an hour. The slopes of Boone and Banner Elk are within an hour's drive. Our area is conveniently located near other exciting adventures. Packages are available as well.

Thanks for letting us enjoy your wonderful cottage. You have a beautiful piece of property. Enjoyed the hike to the Waterfall. Happy New Year!
My family and I arrived on Thanksgiving Eve and stayed the remainder of the week. The cottage was very peaceful and had everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. It snowed on Thanksgiving and our boys had a fabulous time playing in it. We also saw several frolicsome deer. If you'd like to get away from it all, this is the place to stay.
We were so pleasently pleased when we first walked in to the cabin. As our stay progressed we found that everything we could possibly need was in the unit including games, a small library, internet and a TV. Being lulled to sleep by the rushing creek right outside of the master bedroom was awesome.
We will certainly be returning when we can stay longer.

Everything was outstanding. We were very impressed with Laurel Creek Cottage. The new Hybrid Grill is great. What a great steak. The option of infrared, gas or charcoal is super. We hated to leave the back deck, but glad we did and discovered the Waterfall. The cottage is clean and comfortable and private. See you in July when we get our dates figured out. You guys are wonderful hosts.
We've stayed here quite a few times over the last few years and every time have enjoyed it. Everything you need is there and IF it's not, the owners are nearby to assist you. The creek is beautiful and walking up to the waterfall is challenging but worth the effort. There's privacy but yet there's convenience to one of the cutest little Mom and Pop grocery stores just down the street. Be sure to visit it just for the experience. Enjoy grilling by the creek, hamburgers never smelled so good. High elevation, cool clean air, clean facilities, what more could you want. Highly recommend. AND, be sure to go to the Roan and walk up to the Rhododendron gardens. Absolutely breathtaking.
First of all, the owners of Laurel Cottage are terrific. They will stop at nothing to make sure their guests are well taken care of. The cottage has just about anything you could need. The master suite is stunning. The high ceilings and skylights are wonderful. You open the doors to the deck (and you can leave them open, as there is a screened door to keep the buggies out) and are at a waterfall -type creek that makes the most delicious sound. At night you can lay on a king-sized bed, see the stars through the skylight, and hear the creek. It's like camping out, but in a big comfy bed! A cool breeze blew constantly even though it was June. I was here for 3 days and loved every minute of it. The cottage is a peaceful, relaxing place to stay. The only thing I might mention is to folks who are looking for solitude. The cottage is on the same lot as the owner's house (which is beautiful) and is just outside the front door. The deck area is completely private though. My stay here was just what needed!
