Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful weekend at The Creek House. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and a perfect combination of rustic and modern. The privacy and beauty of the surroundings were just what we were looking for in our "unplugged weekend". We are already looking forward to returning to this great cabin in the mountains.

Unplugged weekend

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband with a getaway to the Creek Cottage this past weekend. Despite the torrential downpour all weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We even went for a hike on the trails, which were so lovely. I can't wait to come back during the spring or summer! We played games, read books, lounged in the jacuzzi tub, and sipped wine by the fire. Personally, I loved the idea of no TV or internet. Be aware, we didn't have cell phone reception of any kind! We enjoyed Glass House Winery and made our way into Charlottesville for a nice afternoon walking around downtown. The drive home wasn't too bad - about 40 minutes. It was such a relaxing weekend. My two favorite things - the gas fireplace and the comfy bed and amazingly soft linens.

Owner's Response: So sorry for all the rain this weekend; however, you guys seemed to survive in good shape! Was a perfect weekend to just hang out and relax, and so glad you did. Love to have you guys come back in Spring or in summer, when the pool is open and things are green once again. Thanks for spending some time in our mountains.

Beautiful cabin and great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to pull up to this secluded property! Beautiful location by the creek, and great view from the jacuzzi tub. The house and the fireplace was great for cozying up during the evening, and kitchen had everything you would need. Looking forward to returning.

A Little Slice of Mountain Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband had been wanting to rent a little cabin in the woods for a short weekend away. It was his birthday, so I decided to book this (less than 24 hours). It was so easy, and the space was pure joy. It was clean, it was stocked with everything one would need. The best part was no phones and no internet, which at first I was worried about- but turned out to be exactly what we needed. We visited a winery near by- Glass House- which was lovely. Then came back at sundown to cook a quiet dinner. We turned on the fire and listened to the wind chimes blow in the breeze, sipping wine and relaxing. It was divine. The bed was very comfy, and the sheets were amazing. I am kind of a snob about that. My only complaint; we only had one night. We will definitely be back. It was perfect.

Immaculate, secluded, romantic getaway spot for two

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable with all trimmings (fireplace and hot tub are a nice touch), ultra-comfortable bed and updated kitchen. Streamside deck is ideal for relaxing and reading. Will definitely be back.. Thanks Chuck!
