Property description

Coming to the creekhouse is a vacation destination.Once you arrive, you won't want to leave, so be certain to bring your food, fishing gear and books. Located just 3 miles north of the quaint town of Bakersville, you will be greeted by songbirds and sounds of rushing water. After spending time at the water, you may want to relax on the large screened porch,walk thru the woods or spend quiet time in prayerful meditation in the boulder garden. The creekhouse includes all the creature comforts such as central air, cable tv, wifi, telephone,fans in each room, fully equipped kitchen complete with stainess steel appliances,master bedroom w/private bath,tv and fireplace,washer and dryer, ceramic tile floors and all the comforts of home. But being at the creekhouse is not about being inside, it is about nature and being outside. You will start your day with coffee on the screen porch and you might want to cook breakfast out on the grill that is located on one of the several different level decks. You may then wish to take your breakfast platter to the screened gazebo down by the water to enjoy listening to the sounds of nature while you eat. To travel back and forth between the house and the water you will walk the winding stone path that also branches off to the shade of one of several botanical gardens, or you might want to check out the pond. In the evening, you can watch in delight as the lightening bugs put on a show that will take you back to your childhood memories of capturing them in a bottle. Staying at the creekhouse is certain to be a vacation you will always remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband and I currently reside in Bakersville. We love the beauty of this area. I have a real estate business in Bakersville, but when I am not there, I can usually be found at the creekhouse with my hands in the dirt...for those who come to the creekhouse, they will see that it requires many hours of hands in the dirt time.

Why the Owner Chose Bakersville, NC, USA:
I knew the moment I set foot on this property that it was special.It was a mobile home on unkept land in such bad shape I had to use a machete to find my way to the creek.Once we purchased it, we purchased a bulldozer to manage the land.Our original thought was to one day build a cabin and haul off the existing structure, but as time went on, we gutted and remodeled the inside and added two additions making it fun and whimsical and decided we would keep it always and probably just keep working on it. It was never meant to take the place of home, but rather always a get away place to have fun and just relax.Of course, my husband still waits for the day to come when he can go there and just relax and not have to do the 'honey do' list.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Everything about this place is unique, but sitting on the front porch looking straight up at the Roan Mountain while listening to birds chatter ceaselessly against the background sounds of the rushing water makes it a place like no other. As if that were not enough, the private boulder garden located just to the left of the screened porch is a total unexpected delight. I feel closest to God when I am at the creekhouse.
