  • The Butterfly Creek Estate


    Enjoyed our family vacation in this beautiful home. This home was spacious for our large family of 15 adults and a pet. It was so perfect for housing 3 families, giving everyone space and being together.. Everything was clean, modern, and abundantly provided. The place is beautiful; and comfortable. Sasha was incredibly responsive and helpful via text. She is the best. She also shared some information about the attractions and events nearby. The fire pit was a great set-up. The creek was amazing. We had an unforgettable time at the house. We absolutely loved our stay here. Would absolutely recommend it to any large group looking to get away. This home exceeded our expectations! Sasha is a great manager and meets with you to introduce the house to you and checks on you daily to answer any questions you may have and to ensure everything is going well. We will have to plan another trip just to stay and enjoy this amazing place.

  • Amazing Property


    We have stayed at this property several times and each time is a great pleasure. After this last visit we decided to make this an annual thing. The property owner and manager are very friendly and helpful. They keep the property clean and stocked with all the essentials. The layout of the home is very accommodating for a "Girls Weekend Getaway". Every year, everyone is happy with the features and cleanliness of the home. The beautiful scenery of the creek and back yard makes this property a hidden gem. We even seen butterflies on the property which makes the name so perfect "Butterfly Creek Inn". This will be always one of my favorite rental properties.

    This was our third stay at The Butterfly Creek Estate and I didn’t think it could be better than our first visit but happily it was, and continues. After our first visit the kitchen was fully remodeled. After our second visit, the beautiful grounds were even MORE beautiful with new landscaping and plantings. The landscapers are phenomenal. Our bookclub comes each year and all the ladies feel so comfortable and happy here. It truly is a magician place. We always hate to leave. If fact, we have extended our stay each time because of that. Sasha, the Inn keeper is so quick to respond to any requests. She even brought is more fire wood because we do spend a good bit of time at the enormous fire pit. I cannot say enough about her and her care over all the detail. The owners take pride and such great care of the home and area. The creek is also a great part of the experience. We will be back next year!

    Beautiful property, clean and well stocked. The creek is magnificent. That's where the good things end. Plumbing went out within hours of me arriving. Could not even flush a toilet, take a shower, fill a tub or wash dishes. Then the internet went out. Alerted property manager immediately, she was there at the house trying to find the issue until very late that night. And again first thing next morning. I had to leave to go find a restroom I could use. Plumber came at noon and did not finish until 2:30pm the NEXT day. One of my Guests arrived at lunchtime and I had to meet her out away from the house - we could not be at the house as they were repairing the water issue. The other Guests arrived at 3pm just as the plumbers had finished and the property manager was there cleaning. Still no internet. The property manager was in direct communication with the property owner. What was supposed to be a relaxing BIG birthday celebration for me - a SPLURGE as this property was outside my budget but I stretched, was in all actuality very stressful and not relaxing. Owner offered me a free extra night, which I could not take as I needed to get back to work, & my guests had left . My request for reimbursement for the incident were denied. How someone can rent a property such as this, have a major issue with the plumbing and still charge the Guest FULL Price for the stay is beyond me. My guests all felt the same and 2 are Air B N B renters. They refund issues all the time. Renter Beware!
