I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and the creek that runs behind the cottage. Christmas is a very special time of year and so happy you chose to spend it at Creekside Cottage. Looking forward to having you as returning guests in the future. Sandy

                                                              Just lovely!

                                                              This cottage is everything and more. I loved every minute. It was the perfect getaway for our small team retreat. We had a little mishap with cold showers, but it turns out the water heater was somehow turned all the way down. Sandy was very eager to make it right and refunded a portion of our stay. I would 100% recommend this cottage for a peaceful stay!!

Sorry about the showers being cold but glad it was an easy fix. With so many guests staying it sometimes happens that people do turn the water tem up and /or down. I try very hard to keep it medium temperature but that does not always work for everyone. Please consider us again for your next team meeting. Sandy

                                                              Beautiful and Relaxing Retreat!

                                                              This beautiful property played host to Friendsgiving 2017. It was equipped with everything we needed and provided a cozy and relaxing environment for the long weekend. For November, the weather was beautiful and allowed the husbands to escape and enjoy the creekside patio. There were several burned out lightbulbs that would have been beneficial had they been working, but nothing that took away from the stay. Overall, wonderful property.

So glad it met the needs of you friends and family. The creek is so lovely and such a fun place to spend time if the weather is right and it certainly was for your stay. Thanksgiving is such an appropriate time of year to stay at the cottage since it is actually a restored church. Please refer your friends and family to come spend some time at Creekside Cottage and I certainly am looking forward to having you as returning guests as well. Thanks for sharing you experience for future guests to see. Sandy

                                                              Wonderfully Quiet

                                                              Three generations stayed in this home for a week and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. The favorite thing according to our family's unofficial poll was the back deck and the creek. How delightful to be able to catch minnows with the children! The inside of the house is beautiful. The common areas are big enough to accommodate a large family and the bedrooms are completely private so everyone can have their own space. The yard is large enough so that we could play lawn games and the parking was more than adequate for our three vehicles. Our hostess always answered our questions quickly and honestly. Another wonderful feature since we had children with us was the laundry room. We are thankful for the time we spent here and would recommend it without hesitation to others planning to spend time in the Nashville area.

That creek out back is always a draw to everyone as it allows many fun times like you experienced. Creekside is such a great place for a family to spend time together in the inside as well as the outside. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts about your stay for others to see. I look forward to having you as returning guests in the near future. Sandy

                                                              That this is designated a "cottage" is a polite coinage of what is actually a spacious, pristine, and beautifully appointed luxury home with a cabin feel. The design is beyond description as much of the wood used in the home was reclaimed from the church that was its' original function. It is modern yet has quaint, rustic features that give it an authentic feel. The home is located on a beautiful, quiet, piece of property with a creek running behind it. We discovered a nature trail nearby that allowed us a beautiful place to walk each morning. The home has energy efficient features but for those not used to such features be prepared for warm showers and for needing three hours to wash and dry a load of towels. The ice maker does not work and the fireplace was not working during our stay though Sandy was quick to offer to try and resolve that. Sandy was readily available for questions and issues and was responsive to attempt to resolve any needs. We were only able to stay connected to the home's wi-fi the first day but then established a hot spot on one of our personal cell phones that worked fine for the remainder of our stay. We would highly recommend this property. It offers a getaway while being near to "city" life!

                                                              THE HOUSE is well decorated.Clean and Comfortable

                                                              This was not our first stay at the cottage. We have been there for our girls weekend several times. THE House is nice and clean. We have always enjoyed our stay. This visit we were unable to connect into the wifi and unable to uses the DVD. We followed the instructions but were unable to get the DVD to play. Kept getting message of no connection. WE also noticed light bulbs that needed replaced in kitchen, dining area and entry area. It did look like the outside had been painted and the back deck improved which was nice. We also would like to note it would be nice to have mirrors in each of the bedrooms upstairs. Six women need more mirrors than the one in the bathroom when getting ready in the morning..

I had not idea you were unable to get the WiFi during your stay. That can happen occasionally in a rural area and that is why the information concerning the modem is in the welcome letter all guests receive. Just resetting the modem usually takes care of the problem and reset the modem so that one then receives WiFi. Only takes a second to do that. Again so sorry I did not here that you had a WiFi problem. It was so nice to have you as returning guests and hope to have you again in the future. Sandy
