About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)


Named for the creek that flows beside it, Laurel Creek Cottage is a wonderful retreat beneath the High Knob of Roan Mountain. Located half way between Bakersville, NC and the Appalachian Trail at Carver's Gap, it is a beautiful drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Our area is known for the Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain and for the many Christmas tree farms, as Mitchell County is the Home of the Perfect Christmas Tree. Our communities have great public areas for swimming, fishing, jogging, tennis and bicycling. These creek side and river side parks are pristine and relaxing. Other area activities include tubing, kayaking, gem mining, studio tours for local artists, museums and entertaining evenings at local restaurants and gathering spots.

As hosts to our visiting guests, we strive to make your trip enjoyable and comfortable. Our master suite is a soothing place with a king bed, cathedral ceilings and skylights. The double door access to the creek side deck invites one to explore the outdoors and the nearby waterfalls. Laurel Creek is a native stream. The sound of the rushing water has been a lullaby for many of our guests.

Our guest room has a double bed with a single bed bunk above. Another full bath is right next to the guest room and deck access, just steps away.

The cottage has all the conveniences of home. Linens and towels are provided. The living room adjoins the kitchen and dining area, and there is a 'mud room' entrance for those snowy days.

Asheville's Biltmore Estate is a leisurely drive of just over an hour. The slopes of Boone and Banner Elk are within an hour's drive. Our area is conveniently located near other exciting adventures. Packages are available as well.

Keywords: Relax on the Cool Deck or Hike the Mountain. Fall Asleep Listening to the Creek from the Master Suite

Perfect for a romantic mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was one of a kind experience for us, what with all the beautiful fall colors! The cottage was very clean and had pretty much everything you'd want. Our favorite part was having breakfast by the creek which is right outside the bedroom and also the cute skylight on the roof. The mountain it is on is so very beautiful and picturesque. It felt like a whole different world with so much beauty and perfection. Would definitely go back and rent from Charles & Jo Ann again :)

Beautiful and relaxing !!

  • 4 of 5

This place was great! We spent two nights here and it was so quiet and peaceful. We loved having the creek right outside the bedroom. Listening to the sound of the water was very relaxing. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The owners are right there on the property and were also very helpful. We will definitely keep this place in mind for our next trip to the mountains!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Really this should be 4 & 1/2 stars. The only issues for us were the slight mustiness due to being by a creek-we both have allergies-& the kitchen sink handles working backwards. But we would definitely stay there again. The location was perfect for my son's wedding at Lavonia Crest + we were so close to Roan Mountain that it was easy to get there for a couple of hikes. The cottage was extremely clean & well organized with everything you could possibly need. Charles greeted us-such a nice person!-& Jo Ann was wonderful with communications pre-trip. Even though they live right across the street, we had plenty of privacy. We definitely recommend this little cottage in the beautiful valley of Bakersville!

Wonderful, no other words will work

  • 5 of 5

Arrived a few hours before my wife on Friday. Greeted immediately by Carter. Once I gave him some of my beef jerky, we were best friends all weekend. Carter was the families dog. Unfortunately Jo Ann made him go back to his house, but my wife arrived and we had a very wonderful experience. Loved the place. Clean, quiet, end of the road. Long drive to civilization, but that's why we came. If you trip over the threshold in the master bedroom, you might fall into the creek. Cannot begin to explain how close the water is, and the sound was so perfect. Slept with doors open to hear that all night.

We came to the area to watch the Night Race at Bristol. Only got 30 laps in before the rain stopped it. We couldn't stay Sunday to finish the race. So between all the travel and child care and planning, we didn't achieve our purpose for the trip, but would do it all over again. Hiked the Appalachian Trail, enjoyed the beauty of this great country, and loved every minute.

Next time I want Carter to hang out more, but other than that it was amazing. I would recommend this to anyone!!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you all had a wonderful trip in spite of the rain at Bristol. The areas around Laurel Creek Cottage are surely some of the best! Our dog Carter is not a regular visitor at the cottage, but we do appreciate you all being so kind to him. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
