Overview

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.



Thanks,

very spacious property

  • 4 of 5

What i loved the most is that the property is closed to everything like attractions & groceries. Also I liked the fact that it has 3 king beds. Comfortable bed though. The indoor pool is a plus...the kidz love it soo much and it's also heated. The only negative thing i could think of are the towels coz it smells weird and looks like it wasn't dried well. Over all the house has a lot of characters. We enjoyed our stay.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property with two other families (12 people in all) in town for a baseball tournament. This house suited our needs very well. Large enough for each couple, the older teenage girls and their younger 12/13 yr old boys to all have their own spaces. With 6 preteens/teens in the house, there were no complaints about the wifi availability. The pool served us well with the convience of being indoors and to keep away from the mosquitoes. The rooster is very real and true to owners description. This is an older home with a quirky layout which we enjoyed. The owners were very nice to work with and the welcome letter spelled everything out clearly. We stayed for 6 nights and would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our trip to Clarkston, Georgia. The house was big and had plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 children to spread out. Dining room fit us perfectly and the location is close to everything we wanted to do. LaCretia is a wonderful hostess and very responsive to the one concern we had. Would stay here again if we come back to the area!

Large House With Many Beds and an Indoor Pool

  • 4 of 5

As you can see from the title of this review, it was important to us that we have plenty of room and an indoor pool. We were not disappointed! It is true that there is a rooster next door so be aware of that. However, it is a nice wooded area with a creek in the backyard, and a place to have a hot dog roast, which we did. We even made s'mores! It is an older house which gives it a certain rustic feel. It is in a good location to visit all of the area attractions. Shopping and restaurants are not very far away. It is a nice, safe neighborhood where people walk in the evening for exercise. Much better than staying in a hotel. Great for a family reunion with kids and grandkids or a small youth group activity. We would definitely go back.
