“Great Place to stay even if you don't golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2007

The Bailey Creek Cottages are about 7 miles from the town of Chester. We stayed in a one room, non-view suite for 2 nights. (The view rooms look directly onto the driving range. Our room's "view" was of the next building.) Our mid week AAA rate was approximately $134, which was a great deal for such a nice place to stay. According to the Bailey Creek info, the one room suites are 600 square feet. We aren't golfers but there are package deals that include golfing & lodging.

There is a small kitchenette area with sink, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender, some dishes & utensils. The room has air-conditioning & heating w/ additional heating provided by the fireplace. (Since we were there in summer, it would have been nice to have been able to use the gas fireplace with heat blowing into the room.) The rooms have DVD/VHS players.

The bathroom is huge. There are double sinks with a lot of room between the sinks. The bathroom has a large, jetted tub & a separate, large shower with 2 shower heads. Lots of towels are provided. The toilet is in a small room off the bathroom.

The continental breakfast consisted of dry cereal, instant oatmeal, cups of fruit, bagels & muffins.

Each unit has an enclosed garage. Daily housekeeping services are not provided but they will “fresh” the room on request. Since we only stayed two nights, I don’t how often they do provide housekeeping for longer stays. The deck has 2 chairs & a small gas grill.

We thought we might have to go into Chester to eat but we ate one night at the nearby Peninsula Grill. The restaurant was expensive for the area but the food was excellent & the service friendly but very professional. The other night we ate at a nearby pizza/pasta restaurant which was ok.

I look forward to staying at the Bailey Creek Cottages & eating at the Peninsula Grill again the next time we are in the area.
