Perfect Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Perfect hosts, warm, welcoming and informative. The cottage was wonderfully decorated and had everything we needed plus some! Bobbie's chocolate cookies were delicious and plentiful. Mitch showed us how to build a fire outside and they even provided s'more ingredients. The creek is exactly as described and beautiful. The sleeping porch made this experience extra special. Highly recommended and we hope to return soon.

over 3000 miles to paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband said our week at your cottage was the best holiday ever!!!!! From the "homely" feel of the cottage to the wildlife on your doorstep, we couldn't wish for anything more! Everything you needed for a relaxing time was provided (even a whistling kettle) and homemade cookies to die for.
Anyone from the UK thinking of visiting Virginia, look no further than this cottage. It is ideally situated near to the Blue Ridge Parkway and other local attractions, but also provides enough amenities to keep you entertained, without leaving the cottage. My own highlights were "tubing" down the creek watching kingfishers, and washing dishes, while catching a glimpse of Deer from the window.
You cannot beat sitting outside round the fire, looking up at the stars, planning tomorrow's adventure. Mitch and Bobbie provided very helpful information within the cottage, which was a great bonus to us, to help plan our " adventures" in the area.
Thanks for letting us share your little piece of paradise.
Kind regards from Steve & Penny from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England.

Owner's Response: Thank you Penny and Steve for the kind remarks. We certainly enjoyed meeting you and hearing about your previous adventures.
We are so glad that our "Cottage on Craig" booklet was helpful when planning your day. Come back soon and we will have the tea kettle on for you.

We were concerned about the 4 star rating and were relieved that you accidentally hit the wrong amount of stars on your phone and meant for it to be 5 stars.Thank you for asking Customer Support to change it. We want for our guests to be completely satisfied. Thank you!

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.
