Clarkston House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Library, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

This property is great for family gatherings and outings to the surrounding activities at Stone Mountain and downtown Atlanta. This property is not available for parties and the owner does not allow parties.

The home has 3000 sq. ft. of space over three levels, and features several decks including a catwalk across the back. There are 3 large bedrooms & 1 full bath on the upper level. Bedroom 1 has a double and a queen bed, bedroom 2 has a king bed, and bedroom 3 has a king bed. The master bedroom with a queen bed, master bath, office, living room with fireplace, 1/2 bath, kitchen and dining room are on the main level. The upper level and main level are all wood floors. The third level has a law library with a tiled floor and an indoor heated lap pool. There is a metal slide-lock on the pool door to prevent children from getting to the pool unsupervised. The pool is 27 ft x 8 ft, and has an ascending depth of 4 feet to 7.5 ft. A corner couch unit in the library makes into 2 twin cots. The house easily accommodates 10-12 people.

House: The house is cedar and stone, built on two wooded lots bounded at the rear by South Fork Creek. The yard remains in its natural state. The property is in a culturally diverse subdivision built in the 1970s. Our neighbor has chickens and roosters, and the early morning barn-yard sounds create an experience distinct from the cars and horns of city life. The pictures are current, but it is not a new house. It is better described as an old comfortable house with some unusual and unique features. It is clean with fresh linens and plenty of towels. There is enough furniture to provide plenty of comfort and closeness for large family gatherings.

The house has cable and wireless Internet. This property does not have a hard telephone line.

Stone Mountain: The quickest way to Stone Mountain is to travel West on I-285 and take the next exit (Exit 39B East , Ga. 78) about seven miles. A slower, more scenic route is to proceed east on East Ponce into the Village of Stone Mountain and look for the entrance to the park there. In the day you can hike up the trail to the top or take the skylift. The mountain is circled by an antique railroad. There is a petting zoo and a number of historic exhibits. They have recently added a rope adventure feature for kids. In the summer there is a laser show after dark. In the winter the park hosts Snow Mountain for children's skiing pleasure. Check their website for other features.

Decatur and Downtown Atlanta: Traveling west on East Ponce de Leon Rd. toward Decatur you will pass the Dekalb Farmer’s Market on your right. On your left you will pass the Avondale Marta Station where you can catch a train to downtown Atlanta. There are many interesting shops and restaurants in Decatur. If you continue on Ponce DeLeon you will pass the Fern Bank Science Center. You will also pass some of Atlanta’s oldest large homes and eventually reach Peachtree Street near the historic Fox Theater. In Atlanta you can visit the Varsity, Georgia Tech, Centennial Park with it’s fountains, The Aquarium, The World of Coke, Phillips Arena, The Georgia Dome, the State Capital and Turner Field.

Payment: For ease of payment, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We DO NOT accept American Express.

About LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy

I practice Family Law in the greater Atlanta area and have an office in the North Buckhead part of Atlanta. I have always preferred to stay in a home or condo instead of a hotel room. I like the use of a kitchen and I enjoy swimming laps at the Creekhouse pool, especially after court or after working for several hours. I always feel as if I am in the woods or mountains instead of in a subdivision near a major metropolitan area. Because of my work,I am sometimes not available to respond quickly to e-mails. If you would send a copy of e-mails with any questions to both email addresses listed,we can respond quicker.

LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy purchased this house in 1995

Why LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy chose Georgia

I like the location of the Creek House because it has easy access to I-285. It is minutes away from Stone Mountain and a few miles from the Dekalb County Farmers Market, Emory University, DeKalb Medical Center, Fernbank Science Center and the DeKalb County Courthouse. It has easy access to downtown Atlanta by surface streets or interstate. Use Mapquest or google maps for 1066 DeLeon Drive, Clarkston, GA 30021-1027

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love it when we get a good review. We frequently only speak to guests by telephone right after they arrive and we just assume they had a good stay. But when they tell us they enjoyed it our efforts are rewarded.

Exactly as anticipated

  • 5 of 5

House was just as advertised. Owner was responsive including replacing the worn charcoal grill with a brand new gas grill with side burner on day one and having an electrician check out a light fixture. House was perfect for family gathering of 9 adults and 1 child. Location was perfect for our needs, going into downtown, Stone Mountain, and surrounding areas. Would definitely stay here again.

My family and I booked this home for a family getaway. I contacted the owner with questions and he responded instantly. The home was beautiful! My family members were very impressed as I was. A lot of room for a big family. The home was very clean and I loved how the home felt so secluded. The interstate is minutes from the home and there are several businesses around. The neighborhood was very quiet and we loved it. I would definitely recommend this home to any one with a big family and looking to get away. I also enjoyed the Atlanta area and definitely look forward to one day visiting again. Thanks for making a great home experience!

We just really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Lots of room and very clean. My twelve year old niece, when she came to visit declared that one day she was going to buy this house! Very convenient to Stone Mountain Park. Stocked with everything you need. Would definitely book here again!

Interesting property. Pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

This house is nestled in a nice quiet location not far off the freeway with easy access to Atlanta and minutes from Stone Mountain. The house itself has plenty of room for a multi-family vacation. We were traveling with my boyfriend's Daughter, Son-in-law and two young grandsons. The house is big enough to accommodate separate quiet areas for both families and yet still caters to a family atmosphere. The main floor master bedroom is a little difficult to stay cool in the early summer heat however was still comfortable enough for a good nights sleep. The indoor poor was a great distraction for young children after a long day at the Atlanta Aquarium. We would definitely use this property again if we visit the area.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place for a family/friends getaway. We had an amazing time with our friends. There was ample space/beds for everyone to sleep. The pool was amazing. Both kids and grown ups enjoyed a lot. The deck with the swing was just perfect for us. We also walked down to the little creek behind the house. It's a nice quiet neighborhood but close enough to the highway and the grocery stores. The owner was very helpful and also attended to our phone call late in the night. Lovely house and a lovely place. We enjoyed a lot. :)

Family Reunion Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, and our twin boys reserved this house for a family reunion & mini-vacation with the family. We also picked up three additional family members, two adults and a teenager, from the complet opposite sides of GA to stay in the house with us and there was more than enough room. We were able to go as group to Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank Museum, and Stone Mountain on three seperate days during our stay since all were in a 20-30 minute drive from the home. I was also able to host a reunion dinner one evening for additional family members because the kitchen was well appointed and supplied with dishes/utensils/cookware/etc.

Every evening we made use of the pool (mostly to wear out the twins for bed) and all the beds were comfortable and well appointed. The studio area was nice since I had online school courses to complete and having a washer/dryer on site to clean everything so we didn't arrive back home in AR with a ton of dirty laundry was a massive plus for us. The only "down" side was some very minor maintenance issues (not unusual in an older home) and a rooster crowing at dawn every sunrise (neighbor's pet or something). But, I guess you could consider that "nature's alarm clock" as that little bugger made sure we were up and at 'em early each morning.
