10 of us stayed at Carla's place it was perfect. Everything you needed. A pretty creek running behind this beautiful home. Lovely sun porch for all to gather. We all are in agreement that would definitely stay again.

We had a ladies weekend at this home and it was incredibly perfect. The screened in porch that overlooks the land was where we spent most of our time. We also got to hang in the creek (if you're the adventurous type!), it was so refreshing. We didn't want to leave! Communication with the host was perfect. Highly recommend this place.

Creekhouse was absolutely beautiful! We hosted a murder mystery dinner there and it was perfect for our 1930s themed event! That's where very comfortable and the two bathrooms on the upstairs floor made having 8 guests a breeze!

Great AirBnB, good communication, loved the screen porch, would have loved to stay longer.

PROS: Space was ABSOLUTELY perfect, my wife and her bridesmaids stayed here and got ready for the wedding the next day. It was beautiful, charming, and placed in a wooded neighborhood with a creek, so it was the perfect place for bridal party photos to be taken. Couldn't ask for a better space. CON: The only problem we had was that the host asked for a security deposit in the form of a check on site, which is in violation of AirBnB's terms and services. I wasn't informed of this requirement until the day before checkin, so it caused a bit of a panic, especially with their suspicious history of day-before cancellations. Unnecessary stress for the day before my wedding. Thankfully the security deposit was returned to us in full, I just don't think the host understands that AirBnB will take any damages out of the card that I as a Guest already have on file with them, and the paper check is unnecessary. All that having been said, would still visit here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it.
