Dog-friendly, creekside getaway w/ a full kitchen, furnished deck, & gas grill

Tucked away in the woods, just steps from Scott Creek, this adorable, two-story cabin offers a little something for everyone in your group. Prepare full meals in your well-equipped kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, dine together at the table with seating for six, or warm up in front of the wood-burning fireplace in the living area. Outside, kick back on the furnished deck and enjoy the view and the sounds of the creek, and when the sun sets, gather around the firepit while the stars come out overhead. For additional fun, the creek is great for kids to play in and the walking bridge and linked island are all available to guests of this home.

Clean and big house for 2 couples. No internet and we were warned about no cell service but our AT&T and Verizon phones worked well. Loved walking around seeing some old homes and lots of small waterfalls feeding into the creek. Some snow would it made it perfect

Tucked away on a mountain where all you hear is the sound of the creek and soft leaves blowing in the cool mountain air. So peaceful and relaxing.

Home was nice but my husband and i arrived at check in time the home had not been cleaned, cleaning person arrived almost an hour after check in time so we had to leaving the home rafter driving hours in order for her to clean the property, i called customer service to report the problem the person i spoke with was very unconcerned, after having to leave for 2 hours to let her clean we were told that our cleaning fee would be refunded and I’ve yet to receive it, I’ve used Vacasa numerous times but this time they really dropped the ball 😢

Tiny fire place and the pretty chair in the living room..

We really enjoyed our weekend getaway at this home. The sounds of the creek are incredibly soothing. Two large porches, fire pit, large kitchen and dining room are all great amenities. A lot of privacy given its location in the woods. Highly recommend this spot, with the money.

Rushing Creek Retreat was exactly what we got. Loved listening to the creek! What a relaxing retreat with large porches to rock on.
Enjoyed a fire in the fire pit while watching the sun go down.

The cabin was everything I was hoping it would be and more. The location was great and just a short drive to some great hiking locations. The creek outside was such a peaceful sound and could be heard inside the cabin with the sliding doors cracked. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils, pots and pans. It was very clean with beautiful decor. There really was nothing about this cabin and getaway that we did not love. We will be planning another trip to this cabin in the future!

For those with more than 1 vehicle: The driveway was very steep. We parked one car in the driveway in front of the cabin and parked a second car by the creek below. There is a stairway that leads from the creek to the cabin which made this easy to do.

Away from all the fray, the rushing waters of the creek were soothing. The house was wonderful. Getting there was no problem compared to some other descriptions of the place. You just follow the directions and you’ll get there. Town of silver was very welcoming. Wish I could’ve stayed longer. We brought our two little dogs and all is well, but we had to be careful of the area near the stairs because the slats were a little large and could allow the dogs to be able to get through so we put up some blankets to cover those areas to keep them from looking through and possibly falling down. The second-floor porch has the same slats so we did not let the dogs out on the upper porch or the lower because of the slats. They were too wide for a small or medium dog and possibly even a child could slip through. Aside from that the house was wonderful and we would surely go back again.
Manager response:
Hi, Dean! We are so glad you stayed with us and appreciate you leaving your review. The home is old enough that it has been 'grandfathered' in so far as codes go. There is wider spacing between the railings, but the slats are safe, and a child or dog would have to be quite small to fall through. Thank you!

We had a fabulous time at Grizzly Ridge#66. It was our first trip for father's day, but will definitely not be our last. The bed was so comfortable. Everything clean and kitchen well stocked with anything utensils you need. This will be our Fathers Day tradition. We will see you next year. Also, quick responses when asking a question. It was a beautiful weekend 😊

lovely sound of water ruching over rock in the creek.
