Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family discovered Creekside in 2007 and we've been hooked ever since. We have stayed at the cabin 5-6 times now (Fall is the best season) and every visit leaves us with the fondest of memories. The Belle family has thought of EVERYTHING and we don't feel like we are staying at a rental cabin. The home is warm and stocked with everything one would need from things in the kitchen to games for the kids. The location is ideal as it allows one to do a variety of activities during the day and come back to the cabin to relax in the evening. Proximity to Charlotte, Asheville, the Smokies, Lake Lure, etc. make it easy to plan for a full week of vacation. The hardest part always is leaving. My kids always say they wish they could live there! Thank you Belle family for sharing your home.

Splendid Cabin for getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is nestled in a beautiful wooded location. Easy access, directions are straight forward. Our winter getaway weekend with friends was wonderful. The place was clean, comfortable and spacious with modern amenities. Kitchen was well stocked with essentials. Owner offered an excellent line of communication upon arrival; fortunately we didn’t need to call on him for anything. Friends enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and back wooded area for walks. Great place to stay, I highly recommend and would gladly rent again.

Terrible managemente

  • 1 of 5

We had an inconvenience at the property, and the way the manager of the property handle it was very terrible, the way the lady call us, spoke to us and refer to us was very poor and undesired.

Owner's Response: As the owner, I am sorry that you did not appreciate the interaction with my cabin manager. The Chimera (fire place) you moved onto the wood deck from the fire pit area resulted in numerous burn marks on that wood deck and a 1/2 acre fire in the field below the house from the embers burning the deck being kicked into the woods. Unfortunately, the 1/2 acre fire burned unnoticed and this created a lot of tension with my cabin manager during her conversation with you. As you can see from my 32 - 5 star reviews, I take considerable pride in the property and do what ever is possible to provide my guests with the ultimate Creekside Cabin experience. I would ask that you would consider revising your review based upon your overall experience at Creekside and I hope that you enjoy your vacations in the future. Thank You.

Creekside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We used this cabin for a weekend getaway with a group of 11 people. The place was fantastic. It was clean and accommodating. We had multiple discussions that it was the "small things" about the cabin that made it unique and enjoyable: toiletries provided in the bathrooms, clean towels, a Keurig with K-cups provided, spices in the kitchen, fire wood for the stove, and plenty of items in the kitchen for cooking our meals. Highly recommend this location and company!

Return to paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Creekside for the past 8 years or so and absolutely LOVE staying here. It truly is a special place for our family and one where we have created many lifelong memories for our children. The weather wasn't great this past week so we spent more time indoors than usual but didn't mind it one bit! We enjoyed the fireplace, sitting on the back porch enjoying the view, cooking in their fully equipped kitchen, getting in the hot tub and playing board games. We had a wonderful time as always and we were just so sad to leave. We know we'll be back though! If you're looking for a great place to stay and sight see around the area, the location is great. We spent time in Chimney Rock, Asheville, Hendersonville, Grandfather Mountain- all easy day trips. Thanks so much to the owners for truly making this place a home away from home.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our grandkids are still talking about our time at the cabin this summer. We especially enjoyed being on the very large deck nestled in the trees for meals, games, reading and napping! The cabin is more than adequately equipped to entertain and accommodate a wide range of ages with games, a large yard and creek to explore. We enjoyed fishing and swimming in the river and walking the development meeting the friendly neighbors. The kitchen is fully equipped to feed a large crowd. The cabin itself is inviting and clean. We felt quite at home. Malena is very fair, conscientious and easy to work with. We had a wonderful week and highly recommend this rental property. The Equestrian Center was very impressive and provided a fun evening for everyone.
