About Yindra Vylet

The magic of CreekHouse brought us to North Carolina. We lived at different parts of the word and spent the past decades in California but after visiting the CreekHouse we decided to leave everything behind and move to Bakersville North Carolina where we first bought another house. Few months later the CreekHouse got on the market, we couldn't resist and decided to buy it for vacation rental. The mountains surrounding Bakersville is the home of many artists, many of them have the similar stories; once they visited the area, decided to move here. We both studied art in Europe but life drifted us to other carriers, but now we have the opportunity to continue our broken path. The beauty of the natural scenery is just indescribable; everyday is a wonder. When we are not at the CreekHouse, we are hiking, creating art, remodeling our other house, visiting galleries, taking pictures of the wonderful wildlife or practicing culinary art. We enjoy making people happy by sharing the CreekHouse with our guests.

Yindra Vylet purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Yindra Vylet chose Bakersville

The moment we saw this property we wanted to call it ours. The serenity of this property just magical. It is a labor of love to maintain the large lush landscaping with private creek bordering the property and a pond but it is worth every effort.

Deer, wild turkeys and many different birds are frequent visitors here, magical to watch them from the large screened porch. Spending time at CreekHouse is a life changing experience as many of our CreekHouse guests called it. We like the fact it is in the center of many activities; ski area, waterfalls, hikes, ziplining, gem mining, horse riding, rafting, Asheville, Johnson City, Burnsville, Spruce Pine. All within 45 minutes of drive which is in Los Angeles traffic term: “very close”.

What makes this cottage unique

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 spiritual private boulder garden located just to the left of the screened porch is a total unexpected delight. I feel closer to God when I am at the Creekhouse.

Incredible Mountain/River House

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best VRBO experience I've ever had. The house was immaculate and everything was set up to be so hospitable and welcoming. We loved the homemade cookies! The house sits on the most beautiful property, there was so much room for my dog to run and explore, we had a light snow while we were there and the setting was perfect. Will definitely be coming back!

Beautiful place, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful place was perfect. The hosts are wonderful. They have thought of every detail. The whole place was decorated for Christmas, with a timer turning on the Christmas lights at dusk. Every room was stocked so well, we could have moved in and lived there. They even left a card and some baked items for my husband's birthday. I can't wait to go back in summer when we can enjoy the river and the pond. It was wonderful.

Clean; well maintained; would love to return in the spring when it's warm! Enjoyed the generosity of the owners in providing so many amenities in the house.

Too cold to enjoy outdoors, but is a beautiful place.

We are looking forward to your visit in spring.
