Space 3,600 sq. ft.

About the property

5 Bedrooms + Library, 3.5 Baths, 2 kitchens, indoor pool (Sleeps 10-16)

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 property consists of a 3000 sq.ft. home, and a 600 sq.ft. mother-in-law suite.

The home has 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. On the main level there is a master bedroom with a queen bed, master bath, office, living room with fireplace, 1/2 bath, kitchen and dining room. The upper level and main level are all wood floors. The lower level has a law library with a tiled floor and two twin cots, mother-in-law suite and an indoor heated lap pool.

The mother-in-law suite has a full kitchen, dinette, king bed, queen sleeper sofa, bath with shower, and a washer/dryer. Access to the suite is through a connector door in the library.

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.

The house easily accommodates 10-16 people.

The suite comes with the 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 house is not new. 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 and suite have cable and wireless Internet, however, the suite wireless is limited due to its location. This property does not have a hard telephone line.

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.

We had a great stay!! Enjoyed the extra space and room to gather!!

  • 5 of 5

The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were welcoming. The house has great space to gather together for eating and playing games. The pool was great at the end of a long day!! Our 12 member family had a great visit!! You can hear the rooster, but there are bedrooms farther away as well. Would definitely come back!!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for New Years and had a great time. The home was very cozy yet spacious. It is kind of "ducked off" and could use some modernization in my opinion. However, if that is the feel you are looking for then it is perfect. Great views from the balconies. Overall the house has some nice features and LaCretia made sure we had an easy check in.

Large older home

  • 4 of 5

This home is good for those wishing to be near Atlanta without the hassle of fighting the crowds. The owner did an excellent job of describing the eclectic neighborhood, age of home, and the rooster next door. Recommendations include a new coffee pot and staging the decks for use on warm days with inviting furniture.

Thanks for allowing us to bring our family together from three different states to celebrate Christmas!

Spacious house for large groups; owner is very responsive

  • 5 of 5

We had four families with multiple young kids, and there were plenty of rooms, beds, and towels to accommodate everyone; it did not feel cramped. The house was close to Stone Mountain as well as attractions in downtown Atlanta. The house is dated, but it is functional, has a lot of character, and the views of the hill side, trees, and creek out the back are nice. The pool was a nice plus for the kids. Upon arrival we noticed that the pool heater was not working. The owner had the pool maintenance man come by that afternoon to fix it. The owner was very responsive and accommodating.

Quirky House Perfect for Family

  • 5 of 5

The House was great, and the apartment was a nice separate space. There are a lot of nooks and crannies. The view in the fall was gorgeous with the leaves changing, and the kids really enjoyed the pool. We were able to cook a full Thanksgiving dinner, so the kitchen was wonderful. Overall, we were very happy.

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

Stayed from 12/1 to 12/4 and the house was perfect for our needs...we also rented the attached apartment/in-law suite. House provided ample space for our needs (which mainly was a place to sleep as we ventured to downtown Atlanta). Only negative is the neighbor next door with the chicken(s) that can wake you a tad early for a vacation. Host was very responsive to answer any questions we had. Would definitely rent again.
