Perfect Weekend Away
We loved our stay at the Creek House. The property was exactly as described (maybe even a bit better)! Lauren was a gracious host and it was easy to work with her--always accessible. We were a group of 8 who took advantage of the beautiful property and surrounding trails. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and hope to make this an annual trip! Thank you Lauren.
Absolutely amazing place!
An all around gem! Lauren was great from start to finish and the house and property are truly awesome!
The front lawn, the hiking trails, the peace and quiet of the property, the pool and pool house etc were simply perfect.
Would definitely return!
The Creek is a total oasis of calm and comfort. The owners' impeccable taste and care is evident in every detail. Such a magical spot. Thanks for sharing it with our family.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We loved hosting you and hope the magic follows you along life's journeys.
All the best,
Amazing house in an unreal location
We couldn’t believe you could find a place this nice outside Philly. The house is gracious and very well appointed for ease of living. Family/entertainment room works really well for all ages. The pool is very special and the pool house is actually a comfortable finished studio.
The location in a 1000 acre preserve is hard to describe. Just sensational.
The owners were incredibly easy to deal with despite my messing up the original reservation. We plan to rent again when we come down to visit extended family.
Thank you Lauren for all your patience!
A Homeaway Gem !
We wanted to take our grand daughter to Sesame Place with other family members. The problem is "other family members" includes our dogs :) Lauren is a pleasure to work with, and her pet friendly home in Huntington Valley is only 26 minutes from Sesame. That much we knew in advance. What we were unprepared for was the magnificence of the home (including the impressive artwork) and the majestic beauty of the expansive grounds. The pool and air conditioned pool house were the perfect antidotes for the unusual heat wave affecting the area during our stay. The best part of this location is the adjacent nature reserve. Each day began with a 2 mile walk down the road, past the goats (yes, I said goats), and along the babbling creek with its lush foliage.
One constructive comment - The house has great WIFI in the kitchen, with dead spots in the master bedroom and by the pool. This can be solved with an inexpensive upgraded Netgear Orbi router which would cover the entire property. A value added tech plus for this property is the Sonos system which further enhanced our stay.
This truly is a Homeaway Gem -only 90 minutes from Northern NJ /NYC and well worth the cost. We look forward to returning!
The property was beautiful and in a great location by the Pennypack Trail.
We had a wonderful weekend at this beautiful property. The home was very clean and spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Laura was great to deal with and very accomodating. The kids loved all of the wildlife. Thank you for making our trip more enjoyable. We would definitely book again!
Nestled just outside the beautiful community of Bryn Athyn, our home is located in the middle of a 1000 acre Pennypack Trust nature conservancy with miles of hiking trails that wined through award winning fields of native and curated grasses alive with birds. Our property is part of a small community of homes originally established by one of the leading Pennsylvania Impressionists Joseph Pearson III of the early 1900's. Indeed, we feel as if we are living in one of his beautiful paintings as he crafted the landscape and the stone walls, all constructed from creek rock. We call our home 'The Creek' as the Pennypack Creek passes through the property. We enjoy hours walking along this watershed - one of the oldest and most important in the area. Ancient rock formations line the creek bed and provide a serene quite place to rest or reflect. The lovely and unique neighboring community, Bryn Athyn, boasts a magnificent Gothic style Cathedral and other Historical Landmarks. The quaint borough offers a world class museum and historical tours to the public year round. Every Saturday in the summer and early fall months, a community founded farmers market offers up an abundance of delicacies, crafts and music. This area is beautiful and serene with a gentle and inviting feel.
