Simply perfect

This tiny home has all that you'll need for a relaxing getaway. Though you cannot see the creek from the home, you can hear it's magical sound-- even in the far side of the home.

Perfect Romantic Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got home from our stay in the Ridge cabin. It was an absolutely perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary! The owners have truly thought out every detail. We loved hearing the creek as we sat on the porch in the rocking chairs. The hammock was so relaxing. There was a wonderful jacuzzi as well! We cannot say enough great things about what a wonderful experience we had at Chesley Creek Farms.

Chuck's hospitality was amazing. Our cabin in the woods was the perfect place to get away and relax for the weekend. We could hear the gurgling of Chelsey Creek as we sat in the rocking chairs on the back porch. Beautiful woods all around, a warm fire, and a jacuzzi. We cooked, relaxed, and watched the stars drift across the sky each night.

Thanks again for such a memorable and magical trip!

Secluded Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place! Wonderful inn-keepers, beautiful views, and a perfectly cozy cabin -- they've thought of everything one would need - right down the hiking sticks by the cabin door!

Perfect location for our honeymoon - beautiful night sky (not a drop of city light pollution) for star-gazing and crisp mountain air to blow through the bathroom windows while enjoying a bath... it was the epitome of serenity!

We will be back to visit again!

The perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were actually traveling to the area for a meeting, but didn't want to stay in a hotel. We stumbled across Chesley Creek Cottages and thought the 18 mile drive might be worth the mountain atmosphere. Man, were we ever right!

We visited the cottages at the peak season in autumn, and it felt like we were in heaven! We didn't actually meet the proprietors, however, their hospitality was apparent. We returned one afternoon to home-baked cookies.

The cottages are well appointed with comfortable beds, huge soaking tubs and plenty of books and music to relax to. There are nice decks on the cottages, with hammocks for lounging, and a place for a fire if you want to roast marshmallows under the stars. Don't plan to use your phones or internet...this is a great place to spend time with your loved-one without interruptions. It is a nice drive, and there are wineries close by if you like to visit new places.

I am really sad that this year, the cottages are already booked for our planned weekend away. I will reserve earlier next year!
