About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This creekside home provides the perfect spot for a quiet, secluded retreat. As the name suggests, this charming house sits in a wooded glen next to a tranquil, stocked mountain stream. Inside you'll find spacious accommodations including a dining/living room area, full kitchen, sunroom, 2 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, a second-floor sitting room and laundry room. And since you’re just a mile from town, it’s just a short drive or bike ride to Ligonier’s many shops and eateries.

Rustic elegance on the banks of the Loyalhanna Creek. Fall asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook in one of the house’s four bedrooms.

The Living Room is large and spacious with its comfortable furniture, working fireplace, and flat-screen television. It is the definition of relaxation. The roomy kitchen will allow you to indulge your inner chef as you prepare meals for the ones you love. Situated right off the living room, the dining room features a old-fashioned country dining room set, perfect for a memorable family gathering. If you want a spot to play a board game with the kids or just escape with a warm cup of tea, the sunroom’s the place to be.

Fire up the stone barbeque, stretch out in an Adirondack chair, or just stroll around the spacious grounds that surround the Creekside house. The kids will love running around the yard, playing on the play set, or exploring down by the creek. Plenty of fishing rods for your use in the stocked creek with bait available in two local shops.

We enjoyed our weekend at Creekside! The weather was perfect, and even more delightful was the view out every window of the beautiful rhododendron. There was plenty of space for our group of six ladies. We loved the porch! It was so refreshing to listen to the bubbling creek and the morning bird song while we enjoyed a hot cup of tea together.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. The house is amazing. You feel at home as soon as you walk in. It was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Everything you need is there. The pictures don't do it any justice. It was so much better than what the pictures show. It's in a good location for the attractions in the area and close to town for food and shopping. The owner was quick to answer questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for a great trip.

Great cabin with a good location

  • 4 of 5

Has all the amenities for a great cabin experience: about 40 minutes to the local ski resorts; a bunch of hiking trails; and the adjacent town has a cozy feel to it

Wonderful Christmas Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous Christmas trip with our adult children and my daughter's boyfriend. The location could not have been more perfect with the beauty of the Loyalhanna Creek as a backdrop for the lovely house. We enjoyed having morning coffee in the sunroom and playing games at the dining room table in the evening. All bedrooms had comfortable beds. Linens and towels were plentiful. We loved having a fully-equipped kitchen and laundry room, complete with detergent, dish tabs, fabric softener, trash bags, etc. Helped a lot! We really appreciated the Christmas decorations and poinsettias; we brought our own small tree and a few strands of lights to complete the Christmas cottage! Many special memories were made in this home over the week...memories that we will treasure forever. My husband wasn't in favor of getting a rental this year, but he kept telling me how glad he was that we did, and how much he loved the house. Thank you for sharing this special place with us and we may end up coming back someday!

Overall we had a great stay... One major issue is the staircase. It is extremely slippery. My son-in-law fell down an entire flight holding his 2 year old son. Thankfully the baby was not injured because his Dad took the brunt of the fall. There needs to be carpet treads on the stairs. One minor inconvenience but not a deal breaker is that the upstairs bath does not have any electrical outlets, a nuisance but not unexpected in an older home. The home is lovey, had enough space for my 8, well stocked with all necessities. Will definitely recommend and/ or stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are putting non-skid runners on the stairs so there won't be any more slips in the future. We hope you come again!

A beautiful home with everything we needed for a relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a quiet location with a beautiful garden and flowing river. The kitchen and laundry room was well appointed and the lounge and bedrooms comfortable. Everything worked, the heating and water was hot when needed and everywhere clean. The local town of Ligonier was lovely to walk around with very nice traditional shops and also a supermarket, liquor store, bowling alley, a couple of bats and a gas station. A great stay all in all.

We had a great time, the home is lovely. The yard and surrounding areas are beautiful and the sound of the creek just tops it all off! I would definitely consider staying again next time we are in the area!
