Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath cottage on mountain stream

Creekside Cottage is a distinctive guesthouse known for its congenial atmosphere offering a cozy and comfortable mountain getaway. Our family's mountain cottage is furbished with Ralph Lauren bedding and bath robes for your comfort. A perfect location in a very peaceful mountain setting close to all area attractions, downtown Blowing Rock and Boone. A bold stream runs under rear deck and hot tub and around property providing a reassuring and restful presence to these serene surroundings.

Relax in the private hot tub on the deck right outside the back door after a long day on the numerous hiking trails winding through the Blue Ridge Mountains. A short hike from the cottage, through the woods and a boulder field, connects to The Mountain-to-Sea Trail. Soaking in the hot tub under the bright stars on a clear night is a soothing conclusion to an exhilarating day on the slopes.

Nearby ski mountains are Appalachian Ski Mountain (4 miles), Sugar Mountain (22 miles) and Beech Mountain (28 miles). Everyone enjoys snow tubing at Hawksnest (19 miles).

Shopping and gourmet dining in the Village of Blowing Rock is a short five minute drive. Additional shopping and dining available in Boone, only ten minutes from your front door. Area ski resorts and golf courses are only 3 miles from Creekside Cottage.

Lodging for fewer than required minimums will be considered if inquiry is less than 5 days before arrival date. One-night lodging is not available at any time.

About Eddie Walters

Our family resides in the small coastal town of Sunset Beach, NC. Eddie and Carol are vacation rental managers and real estate brokers. We have two daughters residing in Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

Eddie Walters purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Eddie Walters chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

While attending Appalachian State University, I fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our family enjoys the many hiking, rafting, skiing and sightseeing opportunities. We enjoy occasional breaks from the coastal summers to enjoy cooler days and nights at this elevation.

What makes this cottage unique

I found this cottage on VRBO several years ago and brought my family on a winter vacation to see snow! Living on the coast, this was a rare treat for my daughters. We enjoyed the fantastic location, great stream and rustic, cozy feel of the cottage so much, we decided to buy it! We hope you enjoy your visit as much as our family does.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed our stay for fall break with our college kids! Peak leaf season was a treat despite some clouds and rain. We were cozy and comfortable and enjoyed your cute cabin in the woods!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this cabin is great. It is only a few minutes drive to Blowing Rock or Boone. It is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway so it was easy to get to some great hiking trails. The cabin was clean and the hot tub and fireplace made it very cozy and relaxing. We also enjoyed listening to the stream that runs behind the cabin. The owners were very responsive. I highly recommend this cabin for a couple or small family.

Nice

  • 4 of 5

Nicely appointed and clean cabin. Pillows were not comfortable which made resting difficult, however. Enjoyed listening to the stream at night.

The perfect week

  • 4 of 5

We spent our 40th anniversary at Creekside cottage - it was wonderful, and will forever be a sweet memory. It is set back far enough that it is very private; we loved the hot tub! We made the decision to come back home & get one! The back deck is so serene, with the brook running underneath, and an area with a fire pit that we really enjoyed one evening. all in all, it was wonderful & I hope we get to return some time.

Great for a summer stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks here in July and it was great! The location is hard to beat--easy drives to Blowing Rock and Boone, and right on the Blue Ridge Parkway for hikes and sightseeing. The creek that runs near the house is lovely; if you leave the bedroom windows open you can hear it chuckling away during the night. The fireplace and hot tub make chilly nights and rainy days very pleasant!

Though afflicted with some unfortunate design choices (no bathroom upstairs means that a perilous descent down the stairs in the dark if you need to go in the night, and if you're very tall you'll bash your head on some light fixtures), the cabin is very nice and reasonably priced. The owner is very responsive and helpful in dealing with any and all questions.

We had a great time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway!

Peaceful and perfect

  • 5 of 5

...in all ways. We loved our stay in this cabin. It was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Loved the rustic decor. My daughter had a great time playing in the creek during the day, and at night it was pleasant listening to the sounds of the creek while sitting by the fire. It's location was ideal for any kind of outing, whether it was a hiking trip or just driving to the grocery store. Thanks for a great vacation!
