We enjoyed our stay. Cabin is comfortable and kitchen is well stocked. The only trouble we had is with the gate code not working which was quite frustrating. Cabin is right on the water. We were very close to the road, so we could hear the traffic coming through the gates.
Manager response:
Hello Cynthia, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize there were issues with the gate code, we do hope you contacted us so we could assist during your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope we have the chance to host you again in the future.

We LOVED the creek, hot tub, and air hockey. I would have given this five stars if we could’ve had a fire by the water (the fire pit was locked... no open flames allowed on walnut mountain?). I was particularly happy with the well stocked kitchen, and the beds downstairs were very comfortable. I understand the comments about the “musky” smell, however, it was not an issue for us. Comfortably fit four adults and an older child. The only issue we had.., the gate code we were given to get into the community didn’t work, and there wasn’t a key card on the counter. Therefore, we had to wait for another tenant to let us into the gate, and we weren’t able to come and go freely. Furthermore, we could not access the pool. We were instructed to text Vacasa for any concerns, however, several text messages were left unanswered. Finally (after over 24h) we called the number and received service. Overall the stay was pleasant and relaxing.
Manager response:
Hi Leah, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed the location and amenities available at this home. We sincerely apologize for the drop in communication due to the inadvertent high call volume our phone and text lines receiving. Thank you for reaching out to us when you experienced issues so that we were able to correct these concerns as quickly as possible. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope to have another opportunity to host you again in the future!

We loved our stay at Creek Haven! It was an easy drive up from Atlanta, to a quiet retreat on the creek. Since we were there on a cool weekend in mid-March, we checked out a lot of the local antique shops in Ellijay and Blue Ridge, and had a beer at the nearby Grumpy Old Man brewery in Blue Ridge. The house was spotless, with an easy layout. The kitchen was well stocked although future renters will need to bring their own salt and pepper or other spices. (In our experience, some rentals provide this, while others don't. We have a stash of basic spices that we bring when we travel.) The beds were comfortable. The hot tub was such a treat; we thoroughly enjoyed spending time in it while looking out at the hemlocks along the creek. We made a mental note to bring a travel hammock to put out by the creek. We talked the whole weekend about wanting to rent the cabin again in the future. That's a successful getaway!

Great accommodations for a long Girls Weekend. You could hear the fast moving water in the creek just outside. Round dining table made for easy seating in our group of five close friends. Short hilly walk to lovely level wooded hiking trail.

We loved the hot tube the best!
Peter C. Nov 2019
Great place to stay, they really have everything covered. Dishes, extra trash bags, a first aid kit. You name it this lovely home has everything you could possibly need. Made it so we could kick back without worrying about anything!

Enjoyed sitting on the porch or in the hot tub listening to the sounds of the running creek. Nice relaxing get away spot.

If we could stay a month and never leave we would.. A rest well needed.

My husband & I had the best time relaxing at the cabin and hiking near the area waterfalls. The cabin is exactly as pictured & we had everything we needed. We even had cell service! The location is very close to Ellijay and there are great restaurants. We drove to Blue Ridge and had a great day there too! We brought our pup with us and she had a blast in the creek. We even took her her in to town as there are many dog friendly restaurants.
The only thing we would change is the downstairs bed. The mattress was really uncomfortable but other than that our stay was perfect. I would highly recommend this cabin!

The sounds of the creek, sitting with my morning coffee on the screen porch was a relaxing way to start each day. The beds we all slept in were so comfortable. The property manager, Lindsey was so nice and helpful. Everything was wonderful!
We will be back!

We really enjoyed our family getaway at this wonderful cabin. The location, the decorations, and the amenities were perfect for a young family and relaxing time.
Nicole B. Mar 2019
The cabin was amazing and definitely more than enough room for two adults and three kids. The rooms were spacious and clean. The surrounding outside was beautiful and located next to a creek. The screen room was the perfect place to sleep outside and enjoy the water. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away to a nice quiet place.
