Saving Grace Getaway is located in a little valley that is encircled on one side by York Creek and the bluff that rises above it. York Creek is a dry creek bed for about 3/4 of the year, except in spring when rains sprout little springs along the bedrock and the creek becomes an active tributary to Onion Creek, just a little ways down stream. We have three vacation rental houses: Cardinal House sleeps 4, Coyote Cabin sleeps 2, and Cliffside Cottage sleeps 3. The houses have a shared driveway, but enjoy their own yards and private areas.

Please be sure to READ THE RENTAL AGREEMENT before sending a booking request. Here are a two important house rules that we'd like to emphasize:
- Occupancy limits are observed. We require the make and color of all vehicles in the party and managers live in a private residence on the property to ensure against crowding, excessive cars, or occupancy above the stated limit (3 people at Cliffside).
- Quiet hours are from 10:00pm to 8:00am. This does not mean that you can't enjoy a quite evening outside around the fire, or arrive later than 10:00pm - but please keep the volume down and be mindful of neighboring rentals. We are located at the base of a 50 foot limestone bluff where sound carries. We are also in a rural setting without much background noise except creek frogs and crickets, so things like slamming doors or shouting across the yard will really stand out against silence. This quite hours policy is very important to us at Saving Grace Getaway because we want to provide a restful place for all guests. We hope you enjoy the outdoors and recreate in the yard, but not late into the night or early morning hours. Similarly to the occupancy levels, the managers due live on the property to ensure against excessive late night noise levels. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
