    We had a nice stay at Creekside Cottage. The home had everything we needed and was very clean. The back porch is definitely the highlight of the home. The location is a plus too as it is very close to downtown Waynesville with all of it's shops and restaurants. The beds were comfortable and kitchen is decently supplied. It was nice to have some paper products supplied for when we initially arrived. The home is older and and more on the darker side, probably due to the trees surrounding it. While I have no complaints about it, the house has potential to be so much more. To have a home on the creek is wonderful, definitely worth investing in it to make it the best it can be, especially for what it is renting for. All in all we enjoyed our stay! Thank you for sharing your sweet cottage!

  • Charming River Cabin


    We had a great time fishing in the backyard and watching fireflies. The cabin was decorated beautifully and very clean. Large bedrooms and nice showers. We were very happy. The location is less than a mile from town too!

  • The CREEK is amazing


    The creek was so relaxing to sit and listen to. We loved the location, close to everything and quite. Chairs needed better cushions outside.

    The reservation people went above and beyond to get us an ironing board and iron. Needed for graduation gown.

    Down side.... out dated and old kitchen pots pans. List of things available in house was outdated and not kept up. Open old chips left in cabinet, waiting to attract bugs. Watch to make sure they fix the door from master to deck. Doorknob worked from inside, but didn't from outside. We got locked out. Raining we had to go around back and go in front door.

    Remember to bring toilet paper and paper towels. As you just get starter ones. 4 women go through toilet paper. 😆

    Basic kitchen spices are available, that helps. AC worked great.

    House is musty, but I'm thinking it stays damp because of how close it is to the creek. Plus it's a rock house, probably holds moisture. A dehumidifier running would help. 4 days of us coming and going and it still was musty.

    I would stay again. Loved the area, and the creek. Bathrooms and beds wear clean. Floors clean also. Towels fresh and plentiful. We used washer and it worked great!

    Kitchen pots pans and plates need updated. Even new used from a yard sale would be a big improvement.

    I Do recommend for piece and quite.

    Melodee, this owner asked us to pass along the following response: "Thank you for your comments. Per your communications during your stay, we did fix the master bedroom lock and purchased new pots and pans upon your departure. The house does sit directly on a creek and it was raining. You can smell the creek as with most direct waterfront properties. As we stated during your stay, we don’t provide everything you need for a vacation. We do provide a starter of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish detergent, etc. We did provide you with additional ketchup and mustard at your request before your arrival and tried to go above and beyond to make you comfortable and happy. Should you run out of anything, there are several stores nearby. The cottage is very old but our cleaners and maintenance do a wonderful job of making sure everything is spotless. It is not a brand new or updated home and the online pictures do show exactly what to expect on the inside. It is a cozy, clean, older cottage on the water."

    When we arrived at this little cottage, we were exhausted....when we left, we were fully refreshed! The river was a perfect setting for some tired ministers. There were some fresh cut roses out on the deck and they were the perfect touch to my morning coffee routine. The beds were comfortable. Everything we could possibly need was in walking distance and the food at Maggie's Galley was great!

    Justin was super and took care of the cable box issue right away.
