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.

Truly a Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure we have found! Beginning with the warm and friendly greeting we received, toy blocks and toy trucks set up for my two little ones, coloring Easter Pages, as we were there easter weekend, and a sweet welcome note on the kitchen table with easter bunnies and other sweet treats. We felt so at home! Walking out onto the screened in porch you can hear the water running behind the house. The yard is large and perfect for my 2 outside loving boys to run around. We loved playing in the yard but especially playing in the water. It is shallow enough on the edges that we could sit and watch the children splash in the water, throw rocks play in the mud etc. It was no doubt their favorite spot as they asked to go there as soon as they woke up each morning. Each evening we cooked outside on the grill and ate outside on either the screened in porch or on the table on the outside porch and enjoyed the evenings outside.

The inside of the house is really clean and cozy and very home like, beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything that you could need. We honestly didn't spend much time inside as the weather was beautiful and the outside of the property is beautiful and so peaceful. It was the perfect weekend getaway spot and we cannot wait to come back again!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and for all of the extra touches truly making us feel at home.

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.

Creekhouse

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Robert and Kay, thank you for your review. Yes, it was chilly this December...almost down to 20 F...we are so pleased to hear you had a good time and were keeping warm inside with the help of the central heating, buck stove, fireplace in the bedroom, heating blankets and the patio heater at your disposal. We are looking forward to your visit in spring.

Gorgeous house and property, superb hospitality

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the house we felt welcome. There was a personalized welcome letter and banana nut bread waiting on the table. The house was wonderful, from the cute dishes to the beautifully arranged screened in porch. The master bed had a headed blanket which was perfect after a day hiking. The grounds we breathtaking; morning view from the porch, a private moment in the rock garden and relaxing in the gazebo next to the creek were just the highlights.

We were just a quick drive from town. We took the opportunity to drive over to the Grassy Creek Falls. We completely enjoyed the weekend and were sad to leave.

A Peaceful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left, everything was perfect. Upon entering Creek House we were greeted by softly playing music and an aura of peace. A personalized greeting and bundt cakes awaited us in the kitchen. It was obvious a lot of care, love and attention to details have been put into this home. We were only there for two nights, and on Saturday we hiked to the top of Roan Mountain. It was glorious. However, you don't need to go anywhere if staying in and relaxing is your goal. The grounds are large and well maintained. There is a beautiful enclosed porch area that overlooks a gazebo which will lead you down to the rushing creek. I could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our time here. Oh, and if you like to cook, the kitchen has all the tools you will need for a gourmet meal, and there is a grill outback for hamburgers, or whatever you want. A wonderful experience at a beautiful location that I highly recommend.
