NEW THIS SEASON...COVERED DECK...ENJOY THE CREEK AND OUTDOORS RAIN OR SHINE.

OVER 100 ACRES TO ROAM - FROM BEAUTIFUL WATERFALLS TO ROAN HIGH KNOB. LONGER TERM RENTALS WELCOME!

Named for the creek that flows beside it, Laurel Creek Cottage is a wonderful retreat beneath the High Knob of Roan Mountain. Located half way between Bakersville, NC and the Appalachian Trail at Carver's Gap, it is a beautiful drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Our area is known for the Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain and for the many Christmas tree farms. Our communities have great public areas for swimming, fishing, jogging, tennis and bicycling. These creek side and river side parks are pristine and relaxing. Other area activities include tubing, kayaking, gem mining, studio tours for local artists, museums and entertaining evenings at local restaurants and gathering spots.

As hosts to our visiting guests, we strive to make your trip enjoyable and comfortable. Our master suite is a soothing place with a king bed, cathedral ceilings and skylights. The double door access to the creek side deck invites one to explore the outdoors and the nearby waterfalls. Laurel Creek is a native stream. The sound of the rushing water has been a lullaby for many of our guests.

Our guest room has a double bed with a single bed bunk above. Another full bath is right next to the guest room and deck access, just steps away.

The cottage has all the conveniences of home. Linens and towels are provided. The living room adjoins the kitchen and dining area, and there is a 'mud room' entrance for those snowy days.

Asheville's Biltmore Estate is a leisurely drive of just over an hour. The slopes of Boone and Banner Elk are within an hour's drive. Our area is conveniently located near other exciting adventures. Packages are available as well.

Comfortable house, beautiful creek, beautiful master suite, improvements could be made.

  • 3 of 5

The house was comfortable and reasonably priced! My family had everything we needed and the owners provided things we didn't even expect! There is a beautiful creek outside that you can hear all night long from your bed! The master suite is beautiful! A few improvements could be made, especially on the other end of the house, which seemed older. The bathroom is very small and has a sliding door that does not lock, next to a small bedroom with no door. The wifi worked most of the time, in most parts of the house. Overall, I am pleased with my stay, but acknowledge that it could have been even better!

Quaint

  • 4 of 5

We made last minute plans to snow tube in the mountains and found this listing available. The reservation process was smooth and the owner reached out to us in a very timely manner to answer questions and make arrival arrangements. We arrived late and everything was as perfectly ready for us. The cottage was well appointed plenty of linens and cookware. The master bedroom was nicely furnished and spacious. The kids room was small but we were fine. (better suited for smaller kids rather than teenagers) We will consider staying there again if we make it back to that area!

COZY AND PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location! One way to Roan Mtn and one way to Sugar Mtn. Super clean. Us Florida girls were kept warm and cozy during a bit of snow. The noise of the creek was just what the dr. ordered. It was easy to go and explore, and lovely to relax and hang out. I would definitely stay there again. Owners made us feel welcome, safe, and comfortable.

Perfect for a romantic mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was one of a kind experience for us, what with all the beautiful fall colors! The cottage was very clean and had pretty much everything you'd want. Our favorite part was having breakfast by the creek which is right outside the bedroom and also the cute skylight on the roof. The mountain it is on is so very beautiful and picturesque. It felt like a whole different world with so much beauty and perfection. Would definitely go back and rent from Charles & Jo Ann again :)

Beautiful and relaxing !!

  • 4 of 5

This place was great! We spent two nights here and it was so quiet and peaceful. We loved having the creek right outside the bedroom. Listening to the sound of the water was very relaxing. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The owners are right there on the property and were also very helpful. We will definitely keep this place in mind for our next trip to the mountains!
