Great Getaway in a Great Location from a Great Couple!!!
I hope this review helps you to make the decision process a little easier. First off, we were looking for a getaway from the distractions of our normal week with 4 teenagers. We hit the nail on the head staying at this cottage, and in this area. I started with a verbose review and it cut me off, so here is the abridged version: Renters: Awesome communication! Jo Ann helped us with suggestions to great eateries, local stores and info. She even provided her personal number which we had to use to confirm directions on the trip up and she was happy to help! Cottage: Clean, comfortable and cozy; exactly as described. Master Suite is the best, and we didn't use any other part of the cottage. Deck is secluded and the creek is the number one amenity. We left the back door open at night, fell asleep to the sound of rushing water and the view of stars through the skylight. Was perfect! Had a deer in the front yard on Saturday night when we returned. Wen't hiking up the creek and took about a thousand pics. Just beautiful. Note: Cottage does have Wi-Fi which we used sparingly. AT&T does NOT get Cellular Service in Bakersville but DOES in Spruce Pines. This was perfect for us because we truly wanted a a get a way trip. Area/Town: Helen's restaurant was so good, we ate their twice. Highly recommended. I wish we had more time to explore Bakersville, it was very charming. The river going through the town has an awesome walkway that is lit with quaint street lamps. Can't wait to go back. the drive to and from the small town was breathtaking. Christmas Tree fields, majestic mountains and farm houses. Dollar General was very convenient for any missing items. Spruce Pine has more commercial stuff and is about 20-30 minutes away. Key Items that Would Make Us Return: - Renters - Creek, sounds and beauty - Price - Bakersville Community/Area - Distance from Our Home
Laurel Creek Cottage - Roan Mountain/Creekside
