Definitely will be back
Jane O. Oct 2022
This was a perfect place to get away from the hustle of everyday life. The house was clean, comfortable and the creek view was amazing along with the sound every time you walked out the door. There was really no reason for us to go anywhere else. The peace and quiet we were looking for was there! We would 100% stay again!
Dorothy N. Aug 2022
We loved the wonderful view and sound of the creek. Also enjoyed hiking trails close by. The hot tub was very nice in the cool evenings.

This was one of the best Vacasa stays I've had.
1. The view. You simply can't beat the stream view you get from the living room and deck. The stream is pleasant to listen to, not too noisy. Very relaxing to just sit and watch.
2. When I'm on vacation, I like to cook. The kitchen was well equipped to handle any meal I wanted to prepare.
3. The hot tub was great, easy to use and easy to remove the cover and replace.
4. The gas grill worked great - they provided an extra tank of propane that I ended up swapping to when the first ran out.
5. Beds were very comfy.
6. Washer and dryer worked good, definitely a bonus.
7. The recliner was my favorite place to sit and relax while I worked on my novel.
8. Very clean inside and out.
9. I wish I had explored the gazebo earlier. It's a great place to enjoy morning coffee.

A few things to note:
1. There were two doggies that paid me a visit several times. I am pretty sure they were owned (one had a collar), so I didn't feed them or anything, and encouraged them to go on their way. Just a bit of a surprise when you look outside the sliding doors at 2am and see two doggie faces staring back at you.
2. I would have enjoyed having a screen on one of the sliding glass doors, so I could open it and listen to the stream at night. Just a friendly suggestion to consider.

This is definitely a favorite place of mine, and I will be back soon. Just a great getaway.

the location was awesome. The home was great, hope to return again. After visiting here, a cabin in the mtns is not the same.
Bob H. Feb 2022
Deck view was awesome interior renovations very nice.
Dorothy C. Dec 2021
I loved this place!! The pictures don’t do it justice! I didn’t expect the creek to be as big nor as close! It was a perfect setting!
Chris B. Nov 2021
The setting is Devine! Very quiet and ultimate privacy. Situated right on the edge of the stream you could hear the water babbling by 24/7. Leaves were changing in the area so it was pretty chilly, so we got good use of the hot tub. We had a lot of trouble getting a good fire to burn. Not sure what was up with that. Fireplace was a little smoky.
Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and everything was in good working order.
Clara P. Oct 2021
The home was beautiful, it is a wonderful experience standing on the deck and listening to the creek. The hot tub was very nice. I wish the outdoor furniture had been in better shape. Housekeeping needs to clean and wipe off every time they go to the house. Spider Web’s and spiders under the chairs and around the deck and doors that lead out onto the deck. But beside that we had a great time and it is a beautiful home.
Carol Lynn (. Sep 2021
Home is gorgeous. Location on the creek is fantastic. Could use a different cleaning company.

Absolutely everything ,the home, the creek ,it was perfect ,we
had looked forward to this trip for months and it was everything we dreamed it would be , we are old school nurses , friends for 54 years and needed to get away to rest and regroup, the place was perfect and we left relaxed and refreshed ! ( well except for the key disappearing from the counter where it had sat the whole 4 days ) and we had to leave to get to the airport on time !!
Chase W. Sep 2021
The sound of the water rushing as soon as you step foot out of your car says enough, the inside is completely stunning, and the view can not be topped! Def will be coming back!
Paula C. Aug 2021
Beautiful home nestled in the woods on a babbling brook provides serene place to escape and enjoy family. The kitchen is well stocked and the living room comfortably furnished. The sound of the creek is so relaxing!

This cozy cabin had all the essentials we needed for a relaxing weekend and weekend. The hot tub was clean and enjoyable while listening to the river.
DON S. Jul 2021
The house on the creek is wonderful. Everything was good with the house. Water pressure was not the best but ok
Lisa J. Jul 2021
Being right on the creek with the relaxing rushing water sounds, hot tub, house was imaculent, beds very comfortable. Everything there needed for meals in kitchen. There is a gazabo on the property. I will definitely be back!!
Darla S. Jun 2021
This place is so private and quiet! We were able to really relax and enjoy nature. The house is exactly as pictured. My fiance spent a lot of time enjoying the screened gazebo. He said it was nice to sit in there and not worry about getting bit by bugs. It also had a fan and light. I sat out there a few times with him and it was so peaceful listening to the creek! We enjoyed everything on this trip and would recommend to anyone!
Walter V. Jun 2021
The Creek view and hot tub
Melissa J. May 2021
Stepping out of the car and hearing the rushing water was so exciting! This location is absolutely perfect. Having coffee on the deck and watching the creek was so relaxing. There was a full kitchen with every cooking utensil we could need. The fire pit was lovely and we appreciated the complimentary wood. A beautiful property with amazing views. I can’t wait to return.
Bonnie W. May 2021
Outside. The creek. The wild life. The Gazebo!!!
Manager response:
We are very sorry you weren't able to use some of the amenities. It is always our goal for our guests to be able to use everything the home has to offer. We hope that the refund that you were given has helped with some resolution for the issue you experienced. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Alice R. Apr 2021
Loved the chance to be back home in my mothers cabin. Upgraded kitchen and baths lovely. Being outside on the deck with the sound of the creek priceless. Would have been extra special if the hot tub was working.
Susan V. Nov 2020
We love this beautiful home perched right on the creek. The view is amazing and the home is filled with light from the huge windows. Kitchen has everything we needed, the beds are comfy and the decor is fresh and welcoming! Spotlessly clean, too!
Erin J. Oct 2020
This cabin is truly an absolute gem. It sits at the end of a gravel drive on a pretty nice sized creek. The cabin itself is cozy and has been maintained well. We had such a wonderful time sitting outside on the deck in the mornings and wandering around the creek in the afternoon. My only negative is that when we arrived the first evening the hot tub wasn't filled. We took the cover off in hopes of filling it ourselves and discovered a hole in the bottom. This was a huge bummer for me, but we still enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.
Manager response:
Hi Erin, thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear that you weren't able to use the hot tub. We appreciate you calling us immediately so that we could help assist. We hope that the compensation that was refunded helped to correct the situation. We would love to host you again in the future.
Carly W. Aug 2020
Let me start by saying what I loved. The location is great. It’s close to many things to do like hiking trails, recreation areas, the lake, Mercier Orchards and downtown Blue Ridge. It was so serene and relaxing on the creek. My son loved the water. The fire pit was great at night. The kitchen is well stocked and had mostly everything you would need (even a slow cooker)! Even on the rainy afternoons, there was plenty of stuff to keep us occupied such as puzzles, books and the roku.

The house has potential to be beautiful but it is in desperate need of a deep cleaning. The counter tops and floors were clean but there were cobwebs all over the fans, ceiling and windows. There is tons of dust on the vents. The bathtub doesn’t fill up so I couldn’t give my one year old a very good bath. The doorknob kept falling off one of the bedroom doors. The shower curtain liner is filthy and needs replaced. The dryer takes 3 cycles to dry clothes (which isn’t really a huge problem). The biggest issue for me was the spiders. There are SOOOOO many huge spiders/webs on the deck. I understand bugs will come from the forest and creek, but it doesn’t appear they’ve never cleaned the deck. All the furniture outdoors is completely filthy, covered in bugs and unusable to me. We had a large amount of spiders in the house as well. I’m not talking like 1 or 2, more like 10. They really need to send out pest control to take care of the inside bugs. While I can deal with the spiders outside, I cannot appreciate them indoors.

All in all, I don’t feel the house was up to par with the price paid but if you are looking for a camp type setting, this is perfect. It’s not what we expected when we picked this place but we ended up having a great time regardless.
Manager response:
Hi, Carly! We are so glad you left such helpful feedback for us so we can ensure our guests are as comfortable as possible. We have a new property manager for this home as of October 2020 who is actively working on addressing your concerns. Please know this home does have a monthly pest control program. Thank you for staying with us!
Christine B. Aug 2020
The view was amazing the house was well stocked with anything you might need. Even kid bowls and cups. The few small issues we had vacassa fixed right away. I will definitely be booking a vacassa home in the future and this home was great. So much we even booked an extra night while we were there 😂 definitely would go back
Tabitha W. Jul 2020
This home is perfect! From location to amenities, we really enjoyed the stay! It was just big enough for our family of six with room to relax and spread out. 🥰
Jissel F. Jul 2020
Lovely tucked away spot for resting and reenergizing. Well-appointed, clean, comfortable. Accesible and close to things but private. The sound of the river was just what we needed. My only issue is that the hot tub never warmed up. Even called Vacasa and no improvement. Still too amazing to be other than a 5.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jissel. We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure any ongoing issues with the hot tub are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

Imagine yourself immersed in nature at a romantic getaway cabin. That's what this is. The owners nailed such a fantastic spot for the rest of us to envy. Can't wait to return again!
Taylor W. May 2020
Perfect spot to get away and relax for a weekend. Loved how close to the river the cabin is placed.
Amanda S. Mar 2020

Modern and in a very nice location!

We stayed with friends to have a nice getaway for a short weekend. Such a beautiful cabin! It is obvious from the moment that you enter this sweet little cabin that you are right at home. It is wonderfully cared for and loved. You can see that in the beautiful details of the decor to the wonderful amenities that are offered to guests. We enjoyed the privacy and quiet. Being at the end of the road was wonderful with the babbling creek in front of you and on the right. Just peaceful!

We stay with Mountain Laurel several times a year. We have never had a bad stay. Even when a problem occurred it was dealt with professionaly and quickly. This cabin, Creekside, was one of the nicest we have stayed in. Especially for the money. A nice small cabin right on the creek. Perfect for a great weekend with friends.
