My husband I stayed in June 2014 what an awesome relaxing time. Quiet, peaceful, secluded and just what we needed. The owners are such sweet people and made sure we had everything we needed. Very Clean!!!!!

We had the opportunity to stay in 2 different cabins due to our late reservation which worked out perfectly. The Rustic cottage is superb and is located where no one else is so if you're looking for complete seclusion then it is it. The 2 bedroom has plenty of bass to catch off the dock which is down only a... More

Our trip to Barren Creek Cottages was "off the hook" ..the fishing and peaceful quiet alone time was spot on ... can't say enough about the area, rivers, owners and wildlife ...trust me for the price it's better than any stress releasing therapy on the market.

We just returned home after three days at Barren Creek Cottages. I will admit ~ I shed a couple of tears locking up the place after packing. It was nothing short of amazing. If you are tired of the hustle of everyday life and just need somewhere to unwind ~ this place is where you need to be. There is... More

These cabins are fabulous. We are planning our return trip this summer! Off the beaten path but cabins have every thing u need. We stayed for a week and can't wait to go back. Fishing, tourist attractions just a short drive away, cabins are very well equipped, spacious.

We happened upon the site five years ago while looking for a place to vacation that was on water, affordable and out in the country. We decided to try the cottages. Now, our annual visit to Barren Creek Cottages is a tradition. We... More

Me and my wife Jennifer decided we were going on vacation in this area but had no idea where to stay. It was during hunting season so finding a cabin was very hard to do. I browsed the internet and found barren creek cottages. When I saw their website, I didn't think much of the site but I figured for... More
