Beautiful home and grounds
What a great way to combine the charm of the Pennsylvania outdoors with the depth of Philadelphia's history (historical downtown Philadelphia is only 45 minutes away). Not that we had to leave the house at all - with nature trails, creek walks, the pool and ping pong the kids had to be dragged out of the house to go see Independence Hall and Valley Forge. At night the fireflies lit up the beautifully manicured grounds like a silent fireworks display. We loved every minute of our stay at the Creek House.
So wonderful to have you and your lovely family stay with us at the Creek. thankmyou for the kind words. Our home was sparkling when we arrived home.
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!
The house is great. Large and very comfortable.
Also surrounding area is amazing: lots of space for hiking.
Highly recommend anybody who is looking for a comfortable and peaceful place to stay.
Lauren is the great host, very easy to communicate!
The house was even better than pictured. We stayed with 2 other couples (6 people total), and it was the perfect home for it. There was plenty of space and bedrooms. The living room/TV room was perfect for hanging out and relaxing. Lauren was a wonderful host and very in communication in advance of the visit. She even set a beautiful table for us in the dining room. Highly recommend this property - thank you!
Peaceful and beautiful getaway!
My family and I shared one of the best Thanksgiving holiday experiences we've had at "The Creek". Lauren helped make this a festive and memorable experience with a beautiful holiday table set in advance of our arriving. We couldn't have felt more at home!
Thank you Lauren. We'll be back again to enjoy the summer season! The pool and pool house are spectacular and the trails and grounds amazing!
Best House Ever
We have stayed in several lovely homes for our family vacations. The Creek was the best. Our grown children and their little ones can't wait to return next year. The grounds and hiking trails are spectacular. The pool and studio provided enough space to host 15 people for a luncheon. The house is comfy and beautifully appointed. Even though the home is very close to any store or restaurant you might need, it is tucked away in a quiet, peaceful location which has a rural feel.
We look forward to returning!
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.
