I was a little hesitant to travel to a more remote area but my husband insisted and I loved it! Lots of hiking and fishing. The ten minute trip to the lake offered even more hiking. Brought my two small dogs since they have a dog park. Beautiful area and cute restaurant across the street. Thinking of taking another couple... More

I have been coming to Christopher Creek for a while now and I have to say, everytime I come here they have fixed something or put up something new to improve the property. I noticed this last time the new wedding or concert place they put in. It was already the best for me and I would not even look... More

We made a last minute plan to get away for the weekend and found Christopher Creek online. We booked a cabin and had a great time. It is in a great location and our cabin was perfect for our family. Pet friendly was a real plus for us and the dog park was great. The Lodge Manager was very helpful... More

Stayed in a cozy room right on the creek. Staff was very friendly. It would be a great place for a family reunion. Nice weekend getaway or longer, fall was the perfect time to go. Restaurants within walking distance. Kids would have fun walking the creek and exploring the area.

Great for family reunions, perfect for a family get away, relaxing for 2 or a peaceful place to hide. Christopher Creek Lodge is your place. Rustic cabins, pine trees, wildlife, fishing, hiking, creek, walking distance to a restaurant, beautiful landscapes...perfect anytime of the year.

Great set of cabins located off the creek and wonderful staff. Rooms are furnished with full kitchen, stove/oven, fridge, microwave and coffee pot. Fishing spot just outside the backdoor. If you want to connect with your family and enjoy nature and life this is the place.

I loved this place. Our room had birds-eye wood walls, knotty pine or some such, and a wonderful loft bed over another bed. Climbing up into it and seeing treetops outside was like being in an aerie, so snug and cozy and yet connected to the outdoors. Everything in the room was fine, and with the door open we could...
