Great multi-family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here just before Christmas with 2 families: 4 adults and 3 kids. The house was perfect--roomy enough for everyone to spread out and cozy enough to spend quality time together. The property managers were excellent! The communication was superb and they made us feel very welcome. The property and resort were spectacular as well. Highly recommend this place!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful and loved enjoying the resort amenities - the pool, basketball court and ping pong. House was beautifully furnished and had everything you need. Great for two families to share with lots of room. Great location for riding at Barnwell Mountain.

Enjoyed the rest and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I loved arriving at Spring Creek Cottage - it was so welcoming thanks to our hosts. Will miss our morning coffee on the back deck. Saw a fox scamper through the woods one morning and lots of deer around HLR. Our visit was too short - may come again in the fall. Would love to see the trees changing color.

As beautiful as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

My twin sister and I plus our 4 grandkids ages 4,5,6 &10 stayed for 4 nights. The loft was a big hit, especially for the little ones. Our hosts were wonderful and available for any questions we had. We were also gifted with a banana nut bread that was the most delicious I've ever tasted. We left as very happy campers!

Lovely home and surroundings!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage! It is a lovely home! We saw a lot of deer and the ranch is beautiful! We had everything we needed at the cottage and the owners were very helpful and very nice! We traveled to Tyler and Mineola, very nice cities to visit. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that for our personal taste, the beds and living room furniture were a little uncomfortable, other than that, I highly recommend this place to stay.
