Down in a narrow mountain valley on the side of a country gravel road, you will find Critters by the Creek Retreat. If you love animals, the exquisite sound of a rushing creek, and the beauties of nature, you must come have a stay with us in your separate entrywayed apartment which sits right over the creek with a view of the aviary. With the feel of yesteryear, Critters by the Creek Retreat provides the space that artists, writers, and weary travelers need every so often.You can feed Lucy the sheep right from your porch and an aviary filled with ducks, chickens, geese, pigeons, and other rescued animals wait to greet you.
The apartment you will be staying in is in our home, which is a duplex, and provides complete privacy. It is a one-bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a full sized futon in the livingrroom. It is perfectly romantic for a couple, and three people could also be very comfortable. Our grounds are not appropriate for children to roam freely, but an infant or small child, always accompanied by a parent, would love it here.
Our location is unique. We are right near the Tennessee border. We are right below a ski resort. We are seven minutes from the highway and are central to Asheville, Mars Hill, and the quaint town of Burnsville. North Asheville is twenty minutes away, while Mars Hill is ten minutes away, and Burnsville is fifteen.
My husband began building our home in 2010. As time went on the house grew and we finally decided to make it into a duplex and now we want to offer the apartment as a vacational rental centered around the animals. I have rescued the animals over the years and adore them. It is my desire to let others enjoy them too.
Since our place lends itself to longer stays, check out our special rates for weekly or monthly visits.
We look forward to meeting you one day -- Jacki+ More
