Why Maggie Johnston chose Double Springs
We bought this place for the pure joy of owning a remote piece of Nature on the banks of Clear Creek!
What makes this Cottage unique
There is nothing quite like communing with nature in a beautiful place near a moving stream. You will find it valuable to spend some quiet time just sitting on the porch or gazebo and listening to nature!

Off the beaten path
If you are looking for the normal attractions, this might not be for you, but if you want to get away from everything and everybody, this is definitely for you. We took a walk down to the private beach, and while the water was cold this time of year, we enjoyed the creek and sand. Another day we decided to take a hike. No idea where to go, so off we went. Passed three or four ponds, up and down hills, found another beach and wonderful sites. One morning a doe and two fawn were walking around the house. Beautiful experience.
Thank you for the beautiful description of our property! Come back anytime! You left the house in immaculate condition.
Peace and Quiet
We’ve had a wonderful long weekend. The kids loved hiking the trails. The secret beach is absolutely picturesque. Thanks Maggie and Mark!
This cottage was perfect for a quiet escape. Cell service was ok for AT&T but terrible for Verizon...which was just fine with me bc the solitude was much needed. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. The property is pretty. Nice walks around the property and a shaded hike to the creek. We enjoyed the porch swing in the afternoon. Will be back!
Thanks! There is something to be said for reconnecting with family and disconnecting with technology!
This was an awesome stay. Maggie is great to deal with. We had a great time.
thank you for your kind comments and care for our place!
Very private but not too far from Double Spring and Bankhead. Beautiful woods and awesome creek with access. Lots of amenities including washer/dryer which we took advantage of.
Excellent stay in a quiet, country escape.
Remote enough for total privacy, but close enough to run to the store, this cabin was the perfect escape from the bustle of our everyday. The secluded, riverside beach, with a surprise adventure down through a mystical wooded cavern was our highlight. The accommodation was slightly dated, but clean and equipped. We enjoyed the grill on the porch and the tubes provided for reclining on the lazy river. Our host was very communicative and helpful. All in all a great stay!
Tubing on Clear Creek, miles of walking or mountain biking trails, hiking and backpacking in the famous Sipsey Wilderness Area, sitting in the gazebo overlooking the shoals of Clear Creek with a glass of wine or cup of coffee!
