I booked Up the Creek looking for affordable accommodation close to a great mountain biking area in Roberts Creek. It turned out to be much more than I anticipated. A friendly welcome from the great staff who were informative about the local attractions and where to go mountain biking, and even came to ride with me. The trails near Chris Gilker park off the B&K FSR are so much fun, talk about grin factor!
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the kitchen, dining and living areas made it so easy to relax and interact with other guests as well as to cook up a feast on the barbecue.
I particularly loved relaxing in the hammocks on the porch and soaking up the sun with a beer post ride.
The Gumboot restaurant a short walk down the road also comes highly recommended for breakfast and for dinner!
Great location for beach access, hiking and biking.
I'll be back for sure.
