We had a great time despite the rainy weather! The cottage was comfortable and everything the description said. The property is great and very private with the cottage situated well back from the road. Craig's creek was beautiful and really more of a small river. Highly recommend cottage on Craig Creek!

Perfect Retreat with Girlfriends

  • 5 of 5

Me and my two girlfriends met here for a weekend retreat. The location was perfect for and the cabin was delightful. We arrived to the Cabin and the owner was there waiting for us with home made chocolate chip cookies and showed us around the area. We had a great time just relaxing by the gas fireplace and enjoying meals on the screened in porch as we watched the sunrise and set. A beautiful, tranquil get away. Next time we will come for longer to enjoy the canoes and kayaks. Thank you for a wonderful place to rest.

Beautiful setting and cozy atmosphere!

  • 5 of 5

This was an extended weekend stay to visit family and wanting to bring along our beloved dog, we found this accommodating cottage which was a perfect space. It will be a great adventure when it's warmer to explore the creek and sit by the fire on summer nights. The whimsical pottery, enchanting birds and awesome amenities are appreciated. Thanks to the owners for the warm feeling when being away from home!

Spectacular Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cottage on Craig Creek was fantastic. The cabin was clean, inviting, fully stocked kitchen with enough supplies to make Thanksgiving dinner and the scenery was absolutely stunning and peaceful. Our children had a blast exploring the nearby paths and creek below. Nearby Roaring Run Furnace was a great hike for the family with history and beauty. We are so thankful to Mitch and Bobbie for allowing us to stay in their charming cottage. We can't wait to return!

Our stay at the Cottage on Craig Creek was outstanding! The cabin had everything we needed and the scenery was beautiful. We enjoyed the canoes, kayaks. the corn hole, and the fire pit. Nearby Roaring Run Furnace was an awesome hike with beautiful waterfalls. We hope to return someday.

Splendid Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully splendid time our family had at Cottage on Craig Creek. The home is charming, inviting, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is better stocked than my own! The creek is super fun. We paddled kayaks, tubed, fished, played in the creek and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for sharing your special home in such a lovely setting with us. Can't wait to return.
