The creek house was very cozy and warm during our Thanksgiving week stay. We were in need of a few kitchen items and Kevin was quick to bring us what we asked for. It is a quiet location and perfect for looking at the stars at night. If you go during cold months I suggest taking some blankets or throws to use in the living room. The heater works great but if you are like me and like to snuggle under a blanket, bring your own. I didn’t find any at the house. No complaints about the heating system, though. In fact it can get a little too warm if you turn it up too high. We stayed at the house in the mornings visiting and then spent the rest of the day hiking. The creek house was always warm and welcoming when we got back. There were 6 of us and we didn’t have any problem with the one shower and never ran out of hot water. Again, I’ll say that Kevin was great to respond to any need we had. We enjoyed the creek house very much.

clean, comfortable and quiet

  • 4 of 5

we were in Franklin for the solar eclipse, and loved the Creek House.

It was very clean and comfortable, and so peaceful.

we could easily get into town as needed, but enjoyed sitting on the porch too (in the shade).

enjoyed watching the cows come and go in the field across the road.

the kitchen had everything we needed (appliances, supplies), and we appreciated the two room air conditioners and ceiling fans. the adjoining half and full baths worked well for us.

The quiet country, just a wonderful adventute in nature. Only 2 miles to super Walmart for supplies, but far from the hectic everyday world. Great place for families to spend time just being without having to do. Cottage has all you need to be comfortable. We will go back!

Lovely vacation, Felt right at home

  • 4 of 5

Property was lovely and house is clean and cozy and suited our family of four just fine. Many of the necessities were provided such as soaps, garbage bags, laundry, and even shampoo and conditioner in the shower! Our two boys had fun on the 3 bridges that crossed the creek to the house. Dog-friendly accommodations that even included dog bowls and a doggy place mat and the back property provided roaming area and nice walks, though somewhat limited. I give the house and accommodations 5 stars but I did put 4 stars because it was not as secluded as we would have preferred. The home sits right off the paved road and you do see neighboring homes so that was somewhat of a concern when letting our mutt roam free. The property behind the home is lovely to walk but the trails/roads are rather short. My husband was a bit disappointed that he couldn't fish on the property as the creek was very low, a mere trickle (we stayed in Oct) and the pond was small and without fish but our small boys loved "fishing" with their poles and our dog enjoyed taking dips (I recommend bringing a dark colored towel if you bring a dog... I ended up buying one at Walmart to wipe red clay off her paws after walks/swims). Overall it is a lovely place to stay. We got some great photos and it is centrally located and priced fair. I highly recommend, especially for families. April is super quick to respond to questions. Thank you so much to the Sgro's for sharing your property with us. We enjoyed our stay!
