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 Scottdale

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.

Good experience overall

  • 4 of 5

The house is really big, with suficient room and beds for everybody. The owner is kind and helpful, she always ansewer all our calls.

It’s an old house with a pool. The only comment I have on suggestions for the owner is that there’s cockroaches in the main kitchen and in the main bedroom, but my staying was a good experience overall

Owner's Response: This guest was a pleasure to have as a renter. His family was respectful of the property and I appreciated his calling me when he had questions. The house has quarterly treatment for bugs including roaches. I believe the roaches were wood roaches which do try to enter the house from the surrounding woods and forest. The exterminator was called immediately and there have been no other reports since.

The owner is great. Helped us through out the trip. Lots of room!

  • 4 of 5

I would give it 5 but we had some minor hiccups. I think it being the holidays contributed. Plenty of room comfortable beds. Slept 8 adults and 5 children very comfortably.

Great for extended families with diverse ages

  • 5 of 5

Although this property is an older home, it has been cared for, furnishings updated and has lots of room. My family came to Decatur for the wedding of a son that lives there. We were pleased with the location and the accessibility to everything we needed on a busy Labor Day weekend. The house provided plenty of room for our grown children, their young ones, and my husband and I. We have grandchildren ranging in age from teens down to age two and we still had the privacy, peace and quiet we grandparents needed! The kids enjoyed the pool and exploring outside. There was ample parking for 5 cars. When we first arrived, the ac had been turned off by cleaning ladies and it was stuffy and musty. After a quick call to LaCreatia, the owner, and using a window unit to hurry the ac along, the central air worked great the entire weekend. Overall, we spent a very affordable 3 nights and would not hesitate to return. Great place for large families!
