About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Cottage on Mountain Stream

Creekside Cottage is a cozy mountain cabin known for its congenial atmosphere offering a comfortable mountain getaway. Our family's mountain cottage is in a very peaceful mountain setting close to all area attractions, downtown Blowing Rock and Boone. An active stream runs along the back deck, under the 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 or cuddle next to the fireplace 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 Hawks Nest (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

Eddie and Carol live in the small coastal town of Sunset Beach, NC. We enjoy boating, fishing and walking the beach. Our mountain home provides a nice change of scenery and climate, as well as a place to decompress from our work.

Eddie Walters purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Eddie Walters chose Boone

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 cabin unique

I found this cottage on VRBO in 2007 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!

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Creekside Cottage! It was extremely cold (record breaking cold) but we were able to stay cozy in the cottage. The hot tub was perfect after a day of tubing at Sugar Mountain. We enjoyed cooking at the cottage although we also tried several local restaurants that were great. The Gamekeeper for a special dinner ($$$ but really neat place), Vidalia for Sunday brunch, and Our Daily Bread for a light lunch (fantastic sandwiches). Overall we had a great time. The owner is great - very responsive to messages and questions. Definitely 5 stars!

Thanksgiving getaway 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family & I really enjoyed our Thanksgiving getaway to the mountains! The cabin was perfect for our family of four. It was very clean & had everything we needed. Our boys (ages 11& 8) loved their area upstairs in the loft. Cabin is in a great location & was close to Tweetsie & other area attractions. The weather was great & we enjoyed many hikes. Hope to come back soon!
