Coming to the creekhouse is a vacation destination.Once you arrive, you won't want to leave, so be certain to bring your food, fishing gear and books. Located just 3 miles north of the quaint town of Bakersville, you will be greeted by songbirds and sounds of rushing water. After spending time at the water, you may want to relax on the large screened porch,walk thru the woods or spend quiet time in prayerful meditation in the boulder garden. The creekhouse includes all the creature comforts such as central air, cable tv, wifi, telephone,fans in each room, fully equipped kitchen complete with stainess steel appliances,master bedroom w/private bath,tv and fireplace,washer and dryer, ceramic tile floors and all the comforts of home. But being at the creekhouse is not about being inside, it is about nature and being outside. You will start your day with coffee on the screen porch and you might want to cook breakfast out on the grill that is located on one of the several different level decks. You may then wish to take your breakfast platter to the screened gazebo down by the water to enjoy listening to the sounds of nature while you eat. To travel back and forth between the house and the water you will walk the winding stone path that also branches off to the shade of one of several botanical gardens, or you might want to check out the pond. In the evening, you can watch in delight as the lightening bugs put on a show that will take you back to your childhood memories of capturing them in a bottle. Staying at the creekhouse is certain to be a vacation you will always remember.

My husband and I currently reside in Bakersville. We love the beauty of this area. I have a real estate business in Bakersville, but when I am not there, I can usually be found at the creekhouse with my hands in the dirt...for those who come to the creekhouse, they will see that it requires many hours of hands in the dirt time.

Laura Stapleton purchased this cottage in 2005

I knew the moment I set foot on this property that it was special.It was a mobile home on unkept land in such bad shape I had to use a machete to find my way to the creek.Once we purchased it, we purchased a bulldozer to manage the land.Our original thought was to one day build a cabin and haul off the existing structure, but as time went on, we gutted and remodeled the inside and added two additions making it fun and whimsical and decided we would keep it always and probably just keep working on it. It was never meant to take the place of home, but rather always a get away place to have fun and just relax.Of course, my husband still waits for the day to come when he can go there and just relax and not have to do the 'honey do' list.

Everything about this place is unique, but sitting on the front porch looking straight up at the Roan Mountain while listening to birds chatter ceaselessly against the background sounds of the rushing water makes it a place like no other. As if that were not enough, the private boulder garden located just to the left of the screened porch is a total unexpected delight. I feel closest to God when I am at the creekhouse.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in the CreekHouse. It was warm and inviting. It was the cleanest place that we had ever stayed at. Everything that you would need was provided. Linens, paper products were all included. The kitchen was well equipped with good quality items. The grounds were beautiful as well.

SO RELAXING AND FUN

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Creek House! We arrived to 70 degree weather and sunshine. We spent those early days outside, exploring the beautiful property, fishing in the creek, and soaking up sunshine and beauty after a long winter. When the weather turned cold, we retreated inside to the cozy house to read, play games and watch movies. We also did quite a bit of hiking and sightseeing in the area. Carver's Gap was right up the road and was unbelievably beautiful. Roan Mountain State Park just over the state line in Tennessee was wonderful, too. We can't wait to return and loved every minute. It was really hard to leave. The house was incredibly clean and pretty, and had everything we needed or wanted for a really relaxing vacation. And, Laura was a joy to deal with and so hospitable. She made our stay perfect. Thanks, Laura!

WHIMSICAL AND WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the creek house. We arrived in the late afternoon, Mrs. Laura brought us a welcoming big bouquet of Daffodils. She was so sweet, informative and accommodating.
There were a lot of firsts made here; first real road trip, first snow, first snowman and first snow ball fight. What a blast!! Our nights were spent on the patio or in the Lanai, cozy and covered with a steaming cup of cocoa. The stepping stone and little accents leading to and from the house were charming. The sound of the creek was so relaxing and the adjacent area of woods were fun to explore. My daughter climbed every boulder on the property and loved the bridge leading over to the meditation area, filled with personal touches around every corner. She slept by the fireplace in the Master bed with a pillow and cover each day.
The house itself had a wonderful feeling of home and was stocked with everything, EVERYTHING, we needed and more. We enjoyed every inch of the house; the new king-sized bed, the comfy furniture and the games provided. One of my favorite items was the brick red stove in the living room that warmed us from head to toe. It was so inviting night after night.
The are is also central to many other cities; Ashville an hour away, Boone was an hour and a half and Charlotte was two hours. The Appalachian trail was 10 miles away. There was a nice little restaurant downtown, Helen's, we had lunch at. They had great burgers. I fell in love with the house and the area, we can't wait to get back to our second home!!

Owner's Response: Wow! and to think I was worried that you wouldn't have fun because of the unseasonably cold weather! I truly love it when families come and lifelong memories are made. Thank you for choosing The Creekhouse for your vacation.

AWESOME COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I can not say enough about how wonderful this cottage is. Everything about it is unique. Laura has put her heart and soul into the cottage and the grounds. Personal touches everywhere make you feel right at home. Of course the huge screen porch was our favorite! So peaceful and relaxing. We did some fishing in the creek and caught several rainbow trout. Lots of sightseeing and shops all around the area. Laura was always available and so helpful if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this cottage. Thanks Laura and Jim for sharing your home with us. Hope to see ya'll soon.

COZY AND PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I rented the cottage for a weekend getaway. We scrapbooked and watched girly movies and just relaxed. The house was wonderful with lots of fun and homey touches. The bed was super comfy, and I enjoyed the fireplace in the master bedroom. If you rent the cottage, bring your groceries with you. There's not much in town to eat. However, Bonnie & Clyde's (about 10 minutes away) is excellent!
