Overview

About the property

Riverfront Property - 2bd/2bath

Hothouse Creek is perfect for a romantic/rustic or a peaceful fishing getaway.

Enjoy the clean mountain air, pure fresh water of Hothouse Creek and actually see the stars clearly at night while listening to the sounds of rushing water.

Fish from the deck in our trout stream or relax in our two person hot tub. Want a fire? Relax by our outdoor fire pit or curl up on the couch with a glass of wine next to the gas fireplace.

If your family is like mine, the boys stay and fish and us girls head to Blue Ridge to shop and sip wine. Relax

Hothouse Creek sleeps up to 5 people and is the perfect rustic getaway for those that love to fish or just relax.

This cabin has been apart of our family for three generations. My husband and his father purchased this cabin as a fishing retreat in the 90s. They spent many of summers wading and fishing this small native trout creek. This fishing legacy has been passed to my children. They have learned to swim, fish, and raft in the Hot House Creek. We also have a family pet, Buttercup, lab mix that enjoys the fresh clear water just as much as the kids. (My husband and I are both educators and value outdoor living with our children.)

Guestbook comments from the manager

A trip to Hot House Creek cabin is relaxation at its best. The namesake creek is a beautiful wide stream—the sound of its rushing water dominates the environment from the moment you get out of the car until you reluctantly get back in to end your vacation. My friends and I spent most of our time on the deck reveling in the sound. The recent addition of a hot tub only makes that experience even more blissful, especially at night. There is also an outdoor heater and gas grill on the deck so you can fully enjoy all of this in any season. Additionally, there is a nearby firepit for the perfect s’more and roasted hot dog.

Inside there are ample accommodations for a group—we were a band of six and had our own beds and minimal bathroom sharing with two large lavatories, one upstairs and the other down. The cabin was recently renovated to allow for more guests and comfort. The kitchen is fully supplied with all the cooking gear you will need to have wonderful group meals. A gas fireplace sets the perfect indoor evening atmosphere for conversation, music, games—whatever your pleasure. Between the fireplace and the gas heater peaceful sleep was had by all—I opened the upstairs door slightly so I could continue enjoying the sounds of the Creek throughout the night.

There are lots of wonderful options nearby for any interest. We loved hiking on the Appalachian Trial near Noontootla Creek and Long Falls as well as wandering through the charming town of Blue Ridge. You can also catch the Blue Ridge Railway downtown for a beautiful trip through the surrounding countryside. Mercer Orchards is a short drive for every type of apple product imaginable. The cabin is also close enough to the Ocoee River for paddlers and rafters to enjoy a full day on the river. Perhaps not as scenic but nonetheless essential is a new nearby Engel's Grocery for everything you need for the perfect stay.

Believe me, once you stay in Hot House Creek cabin you will want to return during all seasons to enjoy everything it and the surrounding area has to offer!

Awesome

  • 4 of 5

Our cabin was just what we needed. It was rustic, comfortable and had everyrhing we needed except someone forgot to leave wash cloths. Otherwise we lovedit. Peaceful and restful,what more could you ask for. Loved the sound of the creek outside. We have a small car and had no problems with the road leading to the cabin.

Awesome rustic comfortable cabin. Quiet and secluded, just what we ordered. Even the rain didn't stop us from relaxing and enjoying ourselves. I would recommend this cabin to others and plan on coming back ourselves.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed with our 2 dogs for his Birthday weekend. We loved the sound of the water next to the cabin! My morning tea was a real treat with the relaxing view. Getting out of the driveway was a little tight but nothing major 🙂

Very quiet and peaceful! The cabin has pretty much everything you need, we stayed 5 nights and only ate out once.

There is no wifi or cell service in the cabin so the only recommendation I have is to maybe install a landline in case of an emergency.

Close to everything, and a short drive to hiking trails. It really was the perfect getaway. We miss it already! Thank you for having us in your home.

Overall it us a nice little vacation spot.

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet sanctuary. Instead of vacation it ended up being our evacuation from Hurricane Matthew so other family had to stay behind because of jobs. I wish there were better internet or cell service. We had to go out to check in on family and get updates on our home.

DON'T MISS THIS BEAUTIFUL CABIN!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely lovely, feels like a trip back in time to a rustic cabin on a stunning creek--but with every amenity & refined detail. You can tell Debra & her family love & have cared beautifully for it. The creek can be admired from the spacious deck that sits just above it, & heard even in the main bedroom, which is spacious & cozy, filled with windows & light. The full kitchen is a joy to cook in, the fireplace lovely on a chilly evening. And the washer & dryer a big plus after a day of muddy fishing!

There is a feeling of peace here that is hard to find anywhere in the world these days. Set well off the main road, the only cars that pass are those few on the private road. You can walk a long way up & downhill on this lovely road, with great vistas of the creek & mountains. Perfect for nature lovers--& of course for fishermen!

Debra was thoughtful & always helpful with information, a very gracious host. Thank you so much, Debra for preserving the beauty of this cabin & for your lovely modern expansion of it as well.
