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 bought an other 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 they 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 High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

The moment we saw this property we wanted to call it ours. The serenity of this property just magical. It is a large lush landscaping to maintain with private creek bordering the land and a pond but is worth every effort, it is a labor of love.

Deer, wild turkeys and many different birds are daily visitors here, magical to watch them from the large screened porch. Experiencing this property is a life changing experience as many of CreekHouse guests cal it.

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 private boulder garden located just to the left of the screened porch is a total unexpected delight. I feel closest to God when I am at the Creekhouse.

Truly a Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure we have found! Beginning with the warm and friendly greeting we received, toy blocks and toy trucks set up for my two little ones, coloring Easter Pages, as we were there easter weekend, and a sweet welcome note on the kitchen table with easter bunnies and other sweet treats. We felt so at home! Walking out onto the screened in porch you can hear the water running behind the house. The yard is large and perfect for my 2 outside loving boys to run around. We loved playing in the yard but especially playing in the water. It is shallow enough on the edges that we could sit and watch the children splash in the water, throw rocks play in the mud etc. It was no doubt their favorite spot as they asked to go there as soon as they woke up each morning. Each evening we cooked outside on the grill and ate outside on either the screened in porch or on the table on the outside porch and enjoyed the evenings outside.

The inside of the house is really clean and cozy and very home like, beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything that you could need. We honestly didn't spend much time inside as the weather was beautiful and the outside of the property is beautiful and so peaceful. It was the perfect weekend getaway spot and we cannot wait to come back again!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and for all of the extra touches truly making us feel at home.

Wonderful Stay at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage. The home was filled with little touches and lots of love. Our hostess left us home-baked cookies, which the men ate and left no crumbs. The house was immaculate, and they even had a welcome flyer printed just for us. Thank you for the apples. We would certainly like to buy in the area. Thank you, again for your hospitality.

Unplug and Enjoy Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This property provided the perfect opportunity to disconnect from technology and connect with family. The screened porch was a great place to enjoy games, read and have dinner. The backyard was large with several areas to enjoy.

The owners made us feel very welcome! We opened the front door and heard soft music, smelled a candle warmer and saw a welcome sign. If you are looking for quality family time, check out this property!

Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home located outside Bakersville. We enjoyed sitting outside on the back porch listening to the creek below and watching the fireflies in the yard. Our children had so much playing in the creek. We visited Linville Falls, Mt. Mitchell, Altapasss Orchard and the Mountain View Restaurant during our week long stay.

Thank you so much for sharing your Creek House with our family.

Lovely home on Little Rock Creek (with trout!). Nicely equipped and landscaped yard

  • 4 of 5

With family in the area, we've stayed at a number of properties around Bakersville. The Creek House is one of our favorites, and we stay there whenever possible! The house and porch are very comfortable, and the yard and the creek add to the enjoyment. Not fancy, but very nice and well appointed. New owners are very helpful, including leaving toys and books for our 3-year old granddaughter during our recent stay! Highly recommended for small family or two couples.
