If you are looking for a place that's secluded and peaceful, then look no further. I booked this cabin based on other reviews awhile ago. My husband and I initially stayed here in March, 2015 for the first time. We loved it so much, we went home and immediately booked another stay so we could enjoy the beautiful fall colors. The cabin is simply perfect for 2 people. It's cozy, romantic and filled with everything you may need. We loved coming into jazz playing softly and champagne chilling upon arrival. It just instantly puts you in "vacation mode". The bed is extremely comfortable with wonderfully soft linens. We hiked everyday, so coming back to the hot tub was exactly what we needed. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit, drinking a few beers, eating the s'mores (provided for us) and listening to music under the stars. The kitchen is well-equipped if you feel like cooking. Everything in the cabin is spotlessly clean so, kudos to Deborah for her efforts! Lise is great to work with and very accommodating. She's available by phone for anything we may have needed, but otherwise, this place allows you to feel like you've found your own little slice of heaven in TN. We'll be back soon.
The care and thoughtfulness of the owners was evident from start to finish. Exceeded our expectations. You had multiple areas to sit and hear the creek, even from the hot tub! Great set up for watching TV and movies. Bedroom loft was perfect. Bedding and bed were luxurious. The seclusion and setting was just what we needed.
I remember sifting through all the cabin rentals and discovering the #1 rating held by Stonecreek Cabins and thinking, how do you get this good. After reading dozens of reviews of all the properties, Creekside seemed the obvious choice for our honeymoon getaway. Private. That best describes this location. Very cute and immaculately decorated in every detail. We so enjoyed the breakfast nook and hot tub. I think if we didn't have to trek out for food, we would have never left. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge were crazy with traffic, maybe more so because it was some folks Spring Break. We didn't think about that. However, the perfect weather, probably the best week of spring the area had seen in 2015 so far, made up for the insanity in the city. We walked the property nearby and enjoyed the sound of the running creek water all day and night . We truly loved our privacy and seclusion. Only once did we see some folks from a nearby cabin wandering in the woods above our place and they kind of freaked out and turned back when they saw us. Lise was great to work with through email and was available if we needed her by phone. We didn't need a thing really the whole time we were there. We basically did what honeymooners do (no explanation needed)! No interruptions were appreciated.There were also very special treats when we arrived that were greatly appreciated. No doubt, we will go back one day. Hopefully soon!
It might sound crazy, but it feels like I was led to Stonecreek when I was looking for a place to stay while my girlfriend and I hit "the pause button" on our busy lives and celebrated her birthday. From my first interaction with Lise until we had to, sadly, say goodbye, I was their biggest fan (even though I think I have some stiff competition for that title!)
Our trip was very last minute and because of that, Lise called me immediately after I sent an initial inquiring email. She wanted to make sure we were able to talk about the details as soon as possible because of the timing and also because she knew it was a surprise for the birthday girl!
Personable doesn't even begin to describe Lise. Like I've read in so many of the reviews, I felt like we were instant friends! What a rare and special gift! She is definitely in the right field...hospitality seems to run through her veins. Even the rental agreement isn't like the standard ones you would find from the "big box" rental companies. They truly want to know who their guests are, the reason (if any) for your visit, and your likes & dislikes so they know how to personalize your arrival. It's almost unheard of to have that kind of individualized care in this crazy world and it was an absolute breath of fresh air!
I want to take a second and acknowledge the other "2/3rds" of this great team! As Lise has said in her responses to some of the reviews, she doesn't act alone. It takes 3 of them to give us such an amazing experience. The housekeeper who does an absolutely immaculate job...hmmm, I wonder if she would travel to Nashville and clean our home! And then there's Sue! While I've never talked directly with her, I did hear her voice during some of my phone conversations with Lise~she does exist! Ha! What an extraordinary group these 3 are - each with their own talents, gifts and contributions to making Stonecreek cabins the best place to get away in the Smokies!
We were lucky enough to stay in their Treehouse cabin - quaint, comfortable, romantic, cozy, dreamy, charming -- like being in a fairy-tale! No matter where you looked, or which window you were gazing out of, the view was picturesque! And whether sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee in the morning just taking it all in or relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of wine in the evening, the tranquility that you feel just from hearing the creek down below is unrivaled.
We took a few walks along their property and continued to be in awe. It is such a stunningly beautiful, unaffected part of our world and such a refreshing break from our concrete city life where it seems that if there is any patch of green or a single tree standing, some developer wants to build something on it - just like Joni Mitchell wrote, "they paved paradise and put up a parking lot". Even though these two incredible women have built cabins for our enjoyment on their property, they have taken special care to disturb as little nature as possible - and incorporated much of the landscape into their designs as well. You truly feel you are a part of the scenery instead of looking out upon it. Thank you Lise and Sue for saving a part of paradise and not putting up "a pink hotel and boutique and a swingin' hot spot"!
My wife and I chose the Creekside cabin as our honeymoon retreat and we could not have been more impressed with the accommodations. We contacted Lise six months before our stay and she was very helpful in answering all of our questions about the cabin and the surrounding area. Creekside is halfway between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but situated away from the busy areas just outside of the arts and crafts community, which makes getting anywhere very convenient. We spent very little of our time stuck in traffic thanks to Lise and her handy back road advice. She made us feel comfortable about calling her any time if we had a question.
More about the Cabin! It’s absolutely beautiful, peaceful, cozy, rustic, and any other wonderful adjective you can think of. It’s one of the nicest places I’ve vacationed in and for the price you can’t beat it! The service really sets this one apart. After driving down your private driveway and walking through the front door on your screened porch, you almost go into sensory overdrive with all of the wonderful things that catch your eye. The lights are dimmed perfectly, there’s a chilled bottle of wine on the table with a personalized welcome card, music is playing on the flat screen TV above the glowing fireplace, and everything comes together to make you feel warm and calm. A welcome cake and s’mores with the biggest marshmallows you’ve ever seen await you in the FULLY STOCKED kitchen. You don’t need to bring anything with you except for food. Don’t worry about going to a laundry mat either because it also has a high end washer and dryer. Creekside really does feel like home, or really, the home you wish you could build if you had a few extra acres and a stream. If you’re on the fence about where to stay, consider Stonecreek Cabins. You won’t be disappointed!
Over the past 10 years I have been coming to Creekside and I have to say , this is the Best place to stay in the Smokey Mtns. And I have stayed at many over a span of 25 years. It's peaceful, secluded, and with the window open , awakening to the sound of water rushing down the creek is unforgettable . The owners always make your trip memorable, if there is a birthday , anniversary.. They make it special. Over the years they have renovated, and improved on the property. They are always there if a problem should arise. If you have read past reviews you will see why they are the #1 place to stay when your visiting the Great Smokey Mts. They book up very fast so you will need to plan ahead and book early.
Loved the hospitality! The cabin was great and we loved the atmosphere!! The weather was beautiful and the hiking was awesome. The amenities were near by if necessary but the cabin felt so quaint and quiet! Can't wait for our next visit!
