TROUT FISHING ON BLUE RIBBON TROUT STREAM IN FRONT YARD

Bakersville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Blessed to have stayed here.

  • 5 of 5
Well here we sit on the couch,my wife and I on our last night at the Creekhouse. I want everyone that may have even the tiniest interest in staying here to know that I began looking into staying here two years ago for our 10 th anniversary. My wife and I take turns planning our anniversary trip and it remains a secret to the other one until you arrive at your destination. Two years ago it was my turn and I stumbled upon the Creekhouse,I gave Laura a call and sadly it was too late to stay that year but I felt such a connection to the place even though I had never been in this area before and speaking to Laura was customer service at it's best and I made reservation for this year about a month later. So for two years I waited and spoke to Laura several times to ask questions about the area and she never once faltered in that great customer service. Two years forward and we arrive here and the pictures were not an adequate representation of how beautiful this place is. There are so many nooks and sitting areas around the house and property for any preference during any time of day or night,all with the soothing sound of the creek in the background. Beds are so very comfortable,kitchen stocked for all your cooking needs,skylights in bathrooms are very cool,very roomy inside for several people to all have their own space,quiet inside for sleeping,so many cool touches that Laura and her husband have added through the place ,some you don't even notice until you have been here for a bit. I would not change a thing about this place,other than we wish we could stay much longer. The people in this and surrounding towns are just what Laura told us they were "Salt of the earth" Helen's,Lee's Cafe,Bonnie and Clyde's are wonderful places to eat,heck even the people at the Exon in town are so nice.My wife was very pleased with my choice and we will treasure this anniversary for many years. God brought Laura and her husband to this place for a reason and all of us that stay here are blessed because of it. Don't hesitate to stay here,you will not regret it. Thanks Laura for providing such a beautiful home and for all your help with my planning. May you have many blessed years here at the Creekhouse.

LOVELY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the creekhouse. It was very clean and well stocked. The yard was landscaped beautifully and the fresh cut flowers added to perfect welcoming touch. The location is quiet yet not too far from town and other areas of interest. We loved catching fireflies and fishing/playing in the river. I hope we get the opportunity to return to the creekhouse. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT GETAWAY.

amazing rental property

  • 5 of 5
This is the most amazing rental property we have ever stayed at!!! It is tucked in the Valley or the Roan making for great views and wonderful activities such as hiking, swimming, biking and fishing. I enjoyed this house because it is far enough outside of town that you feel remote but still able to run into town if you need to. When we arrived the house was filled with fresh flowers and other small touches that make our stay special. We could tell the owners really try to make their guests feel welcome. I spent my mornings drinking coffee, in a rocking chair watching the fog roll off the river. I spent my nights by a fire pit roasting marshmallows counting stars and fireflies. The house has a large screened in porch that we enjoyed most of our meals, listening to the wind in the trees. We enjoyed our stay in the house and recommend it to everyone.

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!
