JUST WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have found a more perfect place for vacation ever! For the three nights we were there, there wasn't another person on the river, it was peaceful, quiet, and the weather was 75-80 every day. We fished every day, sat overlooking the river and by the fire pit, and just relaxed. It was all we could do to tear ourselves away to go home. This was a FIVE STAR CABIN if there ever was one! We'll be back!!!!

My dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5
I loved the adorable cottage. We had everything we needed. Everything was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and decorated beautifully. The hosts greeted us, showed us around, taught us how to operate everything, and pointed us to some great local attractions. It was amazingly quiet. We enjoyed listening to birds and insects. Canoeing was so much fun. I want to go back!

My husband and grandchildren came to Craigs Creek for a few days of R&R. My grandboys along with a grandaughter had a wonderful time. They were able to spend time in the creek fishing, swimimg and using the kayak. It was such a good family time, it had been some time since I had heard a whip-a will so it was an absolute pleasure. The cabin is stocked with all needs its just a great place to hang out and the most wonderful thing was the cell phone did not ring (no service in the cabin) There is a land available if needed. The grandchildren were able to see a bear, turkeys and Mr. Door (the lizard) hangin arounf the door. Lovely cabin and the pecan pie was wonderful. Thanks Mitch and Bobbie we will return.

Perfect vacation!

My husband and I came here for our 1st anniversary last year, and it was spectacular. I can't imagine a more relaxing, pristine place to spend our time.
It was so cool to wake up and look down at the creek - the sleeping porch is amazing!
It was raining the weekend we were there, so we didn't get to swim in the creek, but we did take the canoe out and have fun on the water. It was great to have the boats there at our disposal - nice touch!
Bobbie & Mitch were so generous and thoughtful, setting up wood for the fire pit, leaving us goodies in the kitchen... we couldn't have asked for better hosts.
It's been almost a year since we were there, but I had forgotten to leave a review! We have since moved to Colorado (from DC), and I'm looking for a place to go for our 2nd anniversary. I'm hoping I can find a place that's even half as great as this!
Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful.

Perfect Spring Break!!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to spend spring break! Waking up to beautiful Craig Creek each morning was a fantastic way to begin the day. The cabin was so cozy and was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The dogs enjoyed chasing the wildlife and we all enjoyed the kayaks and canoe. The hiking trails at Roaring Run Recreational area (only 5 miles from the cabin!) are a must do for anyone who enjoys waterfalls and beautiful photo ops. We are looking forward to a return trip ASAP!! Thanks Mitch and Bobby for sharing your little piece of paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Cottage on Craig is a place for exciting, beautiful interactions with nature. Virginia bluebells are blooming, fawns are being born and turkeys are calling. The rhododendron will soon be blooming all along the creek and roadways. Come back soon.
