Fantastic getaway! Peaceful, gorgeous, and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Great time was had by all (couple in our forties and our beagle)... Freshly baked cookies from the owners who also left s'mores supplies in the cabin that had everything! Hiking, grilling, canoeing, relaxing - it was simply wonderful!

The perfect disconnect to reconnect!

  • 5 of 5

Mitch and Bobbie have a wonderful little hideaway, literally! Thanks for sharing your home with us. We are already trying to plan when we can come back. There's no cell phone service (outside of wifi) and for someone who is glued to her phone and email due to work it was nice to be hands and mind free. We never turned the tv on once big change for my hubby and our almost 20 yr old was connected with us instead of passing thru. We enjoyed meals together chatting, talks and s'mores around the fire every night, laughs navigating the canoe (I fell in for a nice cool down) and just being us again. Everything you need is here from outdoor activities & board games, to all the amenities of home with a few extra "camping" type perks. If you want to completely disconnect to reconnect to you family, relax and not feel rushed in a normal day rat race. Come stay at the Cottage on Craig Creek, you won't be disappointed! The hubby says the only bad thing was although we saw bear scat he never got to see Yogi and he had great hopes of doing so. Maybe next visit.

Perfect river hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great trip. We went as 2 families of 4 with kids 5-8yr. The kids had a blast playing in the river, canoeing, exploring the trails, fishing, making smores and hanging at the fire pit, and having "the biggest and best" nerf gun battle. So much outdoor space!! The mommy's had a blast working a puzzle on the screen porch, while the daddy's loved fishing and trail running on the near by Loop Hole Trail. We also got in a great hike at Roaring Run (a perfect hike for kids and dogs). Everything was provided for us in the cabin-- We had a fully stocked kitchen and we had no need for anything more. The cabin was clean and well kept, and Bobbie and Mitch were both very gracious... and the homemade cookies were PHENOMENAL. We actually set up tents and camped, in the yard to satisfy the kids wishes... though some managed to retreat inside. It was a great weekend!!! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us!

Beautiful, quiet, excellent amenities, wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Although it was raining the majority of the time, the whole relaxing experience from the chocolate chip cookies to the evening at the firepit. Then round out the evenings playing cards sitting by the fireplace all nice and cozy. The rain even helped with the ambience at night with sounds of rain drops hiring the roof, very relaxing. LOVED IT!

The cabin was wonderful, clean, spacious had everything imaginable at your fingertips.. We loved the sleeping porch that overlooked the beautiful creek.

Bobbi and Mitch were super nice and brought by the most wonderful chocolate chip cookies the night we arrived and were there to answer any of our questions..

We had a great time despite the rainy weather! The cottage was comfortable and everything the description said. The property is great and very private with the cottage situated well back from the road. Craig's creek was beautiful and really more of a small river. Highly recommend cottage on Craig Creek!
