It was everything that they said it would be creek right there , very quiet yet only a mile out of town and it wasn't as crowded as I thought it would be. Perfect for kids. You can dip in the creek and fish. On cooler mornings u can light up fire pit! Surrounding smaller towns were perfect! Thank you had an awesome time!

Perfectly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience during our stay! The house is simple but comfortable, and it had everything we could need for a lovely time. I especially loved all the porches! We drove into town on Friday and headed out Sunday in late July. Get your groceries in Newport or another town before you get into Hot Springs because there aren't any big stores, and most places close down around 6 or 7. Plus, once you get to the cabin, you won't want to leave :)

It was raining when we arrived on Friday, and we played outside in the rain for a few moments while the boys prepared dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. Bring your own spices, olive oil, etc., but all the dishes, pots, and pans are there for you. We listened to the rain under the covered, screen-in porch on Friday and ate our supper outside. Saturday was spent creekside with a short stint in Asheville for the Southeastern Crab Feast, which we had tickets for ahead of time. About 45 minutes but a lovely drive over the mountain. I almost hate that we had to go to the Feast because I was having such a great time at the cabin. We relaxed, kayaked the small stretch of stream, explored all over, and fished (you might want to bring your own outside blanket/quilt for snuggling up by the river while you drink your tea and enjoy the refreshing morning or peaceful evening). We had car trouble on Sunday, and Melanie was so kind, responsive, and as helpful as could be. The town of Hot Springs is a delightful place, but if you're going to need car parts (or anything MAJOR), then plan to drive to Marshall or Weaverville.

I have to say that the best part for me was getting up early on Saturday morning, drinking some hot tea (bring your own but there are great, giant mugs), and sitting by the water in the comfortable chairs provided. It was peaceful, beautiful, and downright rejuvenating. I loved that we had nothing to worry about, it was quiet, and the creek is simply perfect. Our kiddo did some exploring, caught innumerable newts in the quiet little stream that feeds down to the water, and caught about 14 fish in the creek! Sad we didn't get any fish pics! I think the house may use a salt-filter for the water, so if you are used to "city water" you might want to plan to bring a few gallons for regular drinking water. I boiled water out of the tap for my tea, and it tasted fine, but the rest of my fam was a little more picky.

I highly recommend this stay, and we're already planning our next trip back

A wonderful return to Musical Waters

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin last year during the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs and loved it so much that we booked it again - and already have our dates in place for next year. It's a perfect location, the accommodation has pretty much everything you would require, and the setting with the stream makes it a real retreat experience. The beds are comfortable, but do bring an eye mask if you want to sleep in, as the sunlight comes through the tops of the windows in the morning. The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans (but missing a cheese grater and a kettle!), and has some very basic supplies (cooking spray, salt and pepper, some oatmeal) but you will need to bring in everything else if you plan to cook there. Melanie is great to work with, very smooth communication, and we are looking forward to our return in 2018.

Perfect Getaway

This cabin and property are the perfect private getaway. We loved being beside the creek and so close to the town. We hope to return for another visit in the fall.

Recharge and rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

Great clean house with everything you will need to spend your vacation .Its not for those who can't survive without Facebook, house has no Wi-Fi or internate connections but you can get text messages or phone calls. You will get non stop sound of creek and bonfire relaxation. We had wild visitors on the property- deer :)

House is secluded but in 5 min from very small town Hot Springs. WalMart in 30 min and between has more grocery stores and restaurants. What I will change in that house? NOTHING! Prefect as is. Owners make our vacation is very easy and worries free.

Have I mention that is PerFriendly? I wish I can post all video I got of good time of our boxer.

Plenty of fishing. Return soon!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week and enjoyed the whole experience. We were especially pleased that we were allowed to bring our cat Abigail. We had plenty of room and with such a centralized location we were able to visit Ashville and all the small towns in between. Less than a mile from town but with all the privacy of being out in the middle of nowhere by ourselves

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Musical Waters Cottage with Spring Creek singing to you in a very private setting. Other guests have also loved how secluded this property is yet only less than one mile from town, restaurants and all Hot Springs attractions. Two large open decks, large screened in porch and lounge chairs by the firepit next to the water...just where do you got to relax first? Thanks for enjoying and respecting our property, return soon!
