Clarkston House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms + Library, 3.5 Baths, 2 kitchens, indoor pool (Sleeps 10-16)

This property is great for family gatherings and outings to the surrounding activities at Stone Mountain and downtown Atlanta. This property is not available for parties and the owner does not allow parties.

The property consists of a 3000 sq.ft. home, and a 600 sq.ft. mother-in-law suite.

The home has three levels, and features several decks including a catwalk across the back. There are 3 large bedrooms & 1 full bath on the upper level. Bedroom 1 has a double and a queen bed, bedroom 2 has a king bed, and bedroom 3 has a king bed. On the main level there is a master bedroom with a queen bed, master bath, office, living room with fireplace, 1/2 bath, kitchen and dining room. The upper level and main level are all wood floors. The lower level has a law library with a tiled floor and two twin cots, mother-in-law suite and an indoor heated lap pool.

The mother-in-law suite has a full kitchen, dinette, king bed, queen sleeper sofa, bath with shower, and a washer/dryer. Access to the suite is through a connector door in the library.

There is a metal slide-lock on the pool door to prevent children from getting to the pool unsupervised. The pool is 27 ft x 8 ft, and has an ascending depth of 4 feet to 7.5 ft.

The house easily accommodates 10-16 people.

The suite comes with the house but the owner is open to renting just the house or just the suite. Contact the owner for more information.

The house is cedar and stone, built on two wooded lots bounded at the rear by South Fork Creek. The yard remains in its natural state. The property is in a culturally diverse subdivision built in the 1970s. Our neighbor has chickens and roosters, and the early morning barn-yard sounds create an experience distinct from the cars and horns of city life.

The house is not new. It is better described as an old comfortable house with some unusual and unique features. It is clean with fresh linens and plenty of towels. There is enough furniture to provide plenty of comfort and closeness for large family gatherings.

The house and suite have cable and wireless Internet, however, the suite wireless is limited due to its location. This property does not have a hard telephone line.

Payment: For ease of payment, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We DO NOT accept American Express.

About LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy

I practice Family Law in the greater Atlanta area and have an office in the North Buckhead part of Atlanta. I have always preferred to stay in a home or condo instead of a hotel room. I like the use of a kitchen and I enjoy swimming laps at the Creekhouse pool, especially after court or after working for several hours. I always feel as if I am in the woods or mountains instead of in a subdivision near a major metropolitan area. Because of my work,I am sometimes not available to respond quickly to e-mails. If you would send a copy of e-mails with any questions to both email addresses listed,we can respond quicker.

LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy purchased this house in 1995

Why LaCretia Head-Daryl LeCroy chose Georgia

I like the location of the Creek House because it has easy access to I-285. It is minutes away from Stone Mountain and a few miles from the Dekalb County Farmers Market, Emory University, DeKalb Medical Center, Fernbank Science Center and the DeKalb County Courthouse. It has easy access to downtown Atlanta by surface streets or interstate. Use Mapquest or google maps for 1066 DeLeon Drive, Clarkston, GA 30021-1027

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love it when we get a good review. We frequently only speak to guests by telephone right after they arrive and we just assume they had a good stay. But when they tell us they enjoyed it our efforts are rewarded.

House was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people stay for a bachelor party we were celebrating in Atlanta, we just needed a place to stay for the weekend. This house had everything and more that we were needing. The owner was super responsive and answered every question. The views from the deck was perfect, everyone was happy with the choice.

Exactly as anticipated

  • 5 of 5

House was just as advertised. Owner was responsive including replacing the worn charcoal grill with a brand new gas grill with side burner on day one and having an electrician check out a light fixture. House was perfect for family gathering of 9 adults and 1 child. Location was perfect for our needs, going into downtown, Stone Mountain, and surrounding areas. Would definitely stay here again.

My family and I booked this home for a family getaway. I contacted the owner with questions and he responded instantly. The home was beautiful! My family members were very impressed as I was. A lot of room for a big family. The home was very clean and I loved how the home felt so secluded. The interstate is minutes from the home and there are several businesses around. The neighborhood was very quiet and we loved it. I would definitely recommend this home to any one with a big family and looking to get away. I also enjoyed the Atlanta area and definitely look forward to one day visiting again. Thanks for making a great home experience!

We just really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Lots of room and very clean. My twelve year old niece, when she came to visit declared that one day she was going to buy this house! Very convenient to Stone Mountain Park. Stocked with everything you need. Would definitely book here again!

Interesting property. Pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

This house is nestled in a nice quiet location not far off the freeway with easy access to Atlanta and minutes from Stone Mountain. The house itself has plenty of room for a multi-family vacation. We were traveling with my boyfriend's Daughter, Son-in-law and two young grandsons. The house is big enough to accommodate separate quiet areas for both families and yet still caters to a family atmosphere. The main floor master bedroom is a little difficult to stay cool in the early summer heat however was still comfortable enough for a good nights sleep. The indoor poor was a great distraction for young children after a long day at the Atlanta Aquarium. We would definitely use this property again if we visit the area.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place for a family/friends getaway. We had an amazing time with our friends. There was ample space/beds for everyone to sleep. The pool was amazing. Both kids and grown ups enjoyed a lot. The deck with the swing was just perfect for us. We also walked down to the little creek behind the house. It's a nice quiet neighborhood but close enough to the highway and the grocery stores. The owner was very helpful and also attended to our phone call late in the night. Lovely house and a lovely place. We enjoyed a lot. :)
