  • Beautiful and Relaxing


    We really enjoyed our stay here. The creek is so therapeutic. The property is well kept and maintained. There was so much space for my son and I to explore. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to make the stay enjoyable. Our dog could run and play in peace. We really loved relaxing in the hot tub. I would return to this property in a heartbeat and would recommend it to others.

  • Beautiful and quiet getaway!


    I absolutely loved staying here, one of the cleanest places I’ve stayed at and the yard was perfect for my dogs. I wish I was able to stay longer!

    I’ll be back for sure.

  • Another great stay at Shady Creek!


    This was our second year staying at Shady Creek and we were not disappointed! We had another relaxing and peaceful visit to the cabin. Our daughter and dog loved playing in the creek and exploring the property. Plus the new gazebo is a wonderful addition! We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and listening to the creek.

    Best small mountain cabin I have stayed in. It is perfect for an escape for 2 or a small family. This place is only 6 miles off a 4-lane highway and 1/4 from the main road. It feels like you are deep in the woods. The stream is perfect with water levels and flow to play in. The cabin has a ton of USB ports for modern families. Nice firepit, grill (gas), and hot tub. The kitchen had everything you need, even a coffee maker for 12 cup pots and/or Kcups. Nice washer and dryer. I have never stayed in the same cabin twice. This one I will.

  • Love this place


    This place is great. We loved the new gazebo by the stream. We played uno the first night with the fire on. Tons of hiking choices. We even made a rope swing in the big tree. We recommend and we will be back.
