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.
My wife and I stayed at Creekhouse for a week in November. We were highly pleased with how very clean this sweet country house was and how very comfortable the beds were. The care that the owner has taken with art pieces tastefully placed throughout the house and even in the rock garden outside, reflects the thoughtfulness given to their guests with a very special caring touch. The kitchen provides all you need to make any meal, and although we didn’t use it the outdoor grills and the inviting outdoor screened-in porch call you to enjoy the out-of-doors to the fullest. I enjoyed fishing in the stream where I caught trout for breakfast. I went site seeing and hiking on the famous Roan Mountain, which presents a scenic view to this sweet get-away gem. If you have an appreciation of art and artists, you will love Bakersville, with its long time influence from the Penland School of Art and Crafts. The community galleries, coffee shop, and local gathering places are frequented by artists of the area; so you can get to know them as well as their art. The National Historic Landmark that is the Penland School is not to be missed. My wife thoroughly enjoyed taking a class in jewelry making while I fully enjoyed the out of doors even in November. We will definitely plan another stay in Creekhouse; hopefully in Spring or Summer when we can make full use of the outdoors where we can enjoy the Creekside pergola or porch, or sit around the special place provided for an evening fire, or just simply relax in this really fine country get away. I can tell you from experience that November, or any time of year is a time to while away the hours at Creekhouse and forget your troubles. I was so inspired by the winter views of Roan Mountain, I completed a painting influenced by it during my week stay there. You will not in any way be disappointed if you choose your vacation stay at Creekhouse and we do look forward to our next stay there.
Stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed it. Everything was just as the listing portrayed and actually better than could be expected. Laura (owner) was extremely pleasant and enjoyable to meet. The grounds were super and the creek was spectacular. Of course the turning of the leaves were beautiful. Hope to return some time and stay longer.
This home and property were very comfortable with all amenities. Both had beautiful touches of Fall decor. The large porch is beautiful overlooking the walkway to the creek. The sounds of the creek could be heard from most any room. We loved the prayer garden and the fire pit by the gazebo. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. We would highly recommend this cottage.
The Creek House is just a happy place, our bluegrass trio came to play music at some local venues and rest..........the creek house gave us a place to relax,and clear our minds. you can tell that Laura puts her heart into making this rental a home. It is a magical place inside and out...........It is not your typical vrbo...........Thanks for sharing the Creek HOUSE with us.
As soon as you enter the Creek House you get a warm welcome feeling. The house is beautifully decorated, flowers everywhere, the kitchen is fully equipped and the large screened porch is assume.
The surrounding property is excellently landscaped has a secret garden, decks all around, gazebo and of course the sounds of the creek.
If you want to relax, meditate, or enjoy nature the Creek House in the fabulous North Carolina mountains is the place to go. Our only problem one week was not enough hope to stay two weeks next year.
