About Yindra Vylet
The magic of CreekHouse brought us to North Carolina. We lived at different parts of the word and spent the past decades in California but after visiting the CreekHouse we decided to leave everything behind and move to Bakersville North Carolina where we first bought another house. Few months later the CreekHouse got on the market, we couldn't resist and decided to buy it for vacation rental. The mountains surrounding Bakersville is the home of many artists, many of them have the similar stories; once they visited the area, decided to move here. We both studied art in Europe but life drifted us to other carriers, but now we have the opportunity to continue our broken path. The beauty of the natural scenery is just indescribable; everyday is a wonder. When we are not at the CreekHouse, we are hiking, creating art, remodeling our other house, visiting galleries, taking pictures of the wonderful wildlife or practicing culinary art. We enjoy making people happy by sharing the CreekHouse with our guests.
Yindra Vylet purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Yindra Vylet chose Bakersville
The moment we saw this property we wanted to call it ours. The serenity of this property just magical. It is a labor of love to maintain the large lush landscaping with private creek bordering the property and a pond but it is worth every effort. Deer, wild turkeys and many different birds are frequent visitors here, magical to watch them from the large screened porch. Spending time at CreekHouse is a life changing experience as many of our CreekHouse guests called it. We like the fact it is in the center of many activities; ski area, waterfalls, hikes, ziplining, gem mining, horse riding, rafting, Asheville, Johnson City, Burnsville, Spruce Pine. All within 45 minutes of drive which is in Los Angeles traffic term: “very close”.
What makes this Cottage unique
Everything about this place is unique, but sitting on the front porch looking straight up at the Roan Mountain while listening to birds chatter ceaselessly against the background sounds of the rushing water makes it a place like no other. As if that were not enough, the spiritual private boulder garden located just to the left of the screened porch is a total unexpected delight. I feel closer to God when I am at the Creekhouse.

Peace and Tranquility
CreekHouse is welcoming and peaceful, and we quickly felt right at home. Four steps lead to the front porch and door and into a beautifully furnished home. Most of our mornings and evenings were spent on the massive screened back porch which is on the same level as the home. We also enjoyed sitting by the creek in folding chairs provided by the property owners. Thanks to information we read on one of the brochures in the living room, we ventured out to an event we had not planned! Homeowners, Jindra and John readily communicated with us and always responded to messages. The description of the property on VRBO is accurate, but the peace and tranquility offered by CreekHouse can be fully appreciated only by experiencing it firsthand, and I am thankful we did!
P.S. The master bed is super comfortable!
The Very Best!
Jindra and John’s home is simply spectacular! First off, communication with the hosts was great. When we arrived at Creekhouse, we were greeted with a very nice welcome (soft music, cookies, and a lovely greeting note!). The check-in process was super easy. The cottage was very clean. My partner, my 81 yo mother, myself, and our 2 dogs had an incredible vacation here. We stopped at Ingles in Spruce Pine on the way in snd stocked up on what we needed. Ingles is a great grocery store, and they provide all you will need for any meals you may want to cook in the fabulous kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with everything you desire to make a meal. A rarity: the kitchen knives were sharp!
The heart of the home is the fabulous screened in porch! Comfy seating is so inviting, and the sound of the beautiful creek can be heard here. There is a ceiling fan that helps move the fresh mountain air throughout the porch. A beautiful walk down through the yard leads to the lovely creek. Our dog Sophie had so much fun splashing in the water, chasing sticks, and swimming!
Mom and I walked the property each evening with the dogs, and it was so relaxing. One evening, 3 deer were munching on apples in the yard. When it came time to nestle in and sleep, we were greeted with very comfy beds and linens.
We traveled to Spruce Pine for lunch at Las Cruces, a great restaurant, and enjoyed shopping at the Mica Gallery in Bakersville.
Mostly, though, we just relaxed and enjoyed our time at Creekside, a very special hideaway! For those of you who are a little nervous driving in the mountains, please note the drive to Creekside was very easy.
You will not regret booking this lovely cabin!
Beautiful property and lovely home
Wonderful location for relaxing and winding down. Property was just as advertised. Very clean and comfortable with a delicious welcome cookie plate from owner. Highly recommend visiting here if you need to decompress. Sit creekside and watch the deer and wild turkeys! Just lovely.
We had a wonderful stay at the Creek house in Bakersville! Our family really enjoyed the screened in porch, the lit up gazebo at night, and playing in the creek with the kids and the dog, not having to worry about sharing it with other families. We had it all to ourselves, which was really nice! Bring some k-cups if you enjoy coffee that is brewed like a Keurig and it also has a regular coffee maker as well. We really appreciate that it was so close to Roan Mountain. The views there were amazing. Thanks so much!
Peace by the Creekside.
Attention to detail at this property was amazing. The music was playing softly as you walked in, it smelled good, was very clean,. A personalized greeting poster was framed on the table, along with home baked cookies and fresh flowers from the numerous gardens on the property. The screened in porch is wonderful as you can watch the deer and hear the river below. The Screened in Gazebo was another favorite by the river. The River was our favorite place and we caught several fish. If you are looking for a restful peaceful place this is it. The drive up Roan Mountain was beautiful. Thanks so much, it was wonderful.
Dear Trina, thank you so much for your kind words! We are thrilled you had a restful ,peaceful and enjoyable stay at the CreekHouse !
Little Piece of Heaven!
We were welcomed by the owners, who were very nice, with a plate of fresh baked cookies, and a framed, personalized sign with our names, as well as the names of our dogs. A nice touch! Darling little cabin, well stocked with everything you might need, and perfect for a romantic getaway. Attractively decorated, lots of cute art pieces inside and outside. Never did figure out how to work the convection oven, but no big loss. The star of this house is the huge screened in porch with a vaulted ceiling, lots of wicker furniture, a big dining table, a great view of the 3 acre yard, and the sound of the rushing water in the creek at the edge of the property. We practically lived on that porch the entire time we were there, and truly enjoyed just how relaxing it was! There is also a screened in little gazebo right on the edge of the water that was terrific. To reach the creek, you do have to go down a fairly steep flight of stairs, so this would not be for someone with any physical limitations, or for very small children. The journey down these steps is well rewarded with the view of the creek however. Gorgeous! The yard, all 3 acres of it, has flowers everywhere, trees, a pond, and is just glorious! We had no cellphone reception there at all, but after the 1st day, it was kind of nice to not have that distraction. There is internet service however, and Dish TV. Roan mountain is only 14 miles away and it is a beautiful drive. For groceries or restaurants, we found that driving over to Spruce Pine, about 15 minutes away, was the best bet. Bakersville is cute, but not many choices. We highly recommend this little house, and look forward to going there again!
Dear Cheryl, thank you so much! What a beautiful description! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! We truly enjoyed your visit and are looking forward to hosting you again in the future!
