What made this stay 5/5 stars was definitely Brian! He was extremely helpful at answering any questions we had and very quick at responding whether it was a text, e-mail, or phone call. Extremely friendly and easy to work with.

The cabin itself was also great! Perfect size, beautiful woods around, calming creek right in the back yard, and just the perfect mix of modern and "cabin-y" interior. Bed was comfy, stove was great, couch and chairs were good, shower was hot and nice, everything else was great!

The only things I would note is that we had zero phone signal there (both good and bad), there's no dishwasher, no wifi, the tv signal was spotty on certain channels at times, and the cabin is still next to a road aka not down a path and super secluded. These are minor things, but just to take note. I would 100% recommend this cabin to any and every one!

Unplug and reconnect

  • 4 of 5

The Cabin on the Creek although convenient to the Shawnee Wine Trail is secluded. It is a great place to unwind to the sound of the creek under a sky full of stars with a loved one. The Cabin presents the opportunity to unplug from many of the World's distractions. It is a wonderful place to fall in love again!

Secluded, cute little cabin.

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this cabin for my sister's bachelorette party, a group of six, and it couldn't have been better. Our favorite part was the deck overlooking the creek, we spent almost all of our time out there. There's two bathrooms, which is awesome for six women! The one bedroom has a queen sized bed, a futon that pulls down to a bed, and an air mattress. It easily accommodated all of us comfortably. We didn't use the fire pit area but it looked really nice. Yhe decor was updated and modern, it was peelected. The kitchen is nicely stocked with anything you'd need to prepare quick meals.

Brian was very nice, he checked in on us, and responded quickly to questions.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience!

A romantic gem in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin is perfect for the couples getaway. Close to the wine trails yet feels so secluded. This cabin is well appointed and is decorated in a charming way with those special touches. Owner is so easy to work with and genuinely care about your stay. Will definitely be back!

Quiet and cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin over Easter weekend. If you're looking for a quiet getaway to unwind, look no more! The cabin feels so secluded but in reality it's close to lots of things to do. We spent the weekend relaxing and found it to be peaceful. The cabin is stocked with everything you need except food and they provide a nice bbq grill. The fire pit is located away from the cabin but it's really nice. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the size of the living room. Not an issue if you plan on being out and about but for watching movies/relaxing it's a little small. The creek was great and we enjoyed walking and listening to the soothing sounds of it. Everything was nicely decorated and the owner was very responsive to all of our questions.

Wonderful Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cabin at the Creek in early March and it was beautiful. It was like having our own private creek and we didn't even have to leave the side deck!

It was a very easy transaction working with the owner, Brian, who could not have been more helpful about the location and information about the cabin.

It was fantastic to be secluded without being too far from amenities.

The cabin was complete with everything. It was great every time we realized we forgot something the cabin had it. The firepit area by the creek is awesome and we even arrived to a pre-built fire by the owner.

We would highly recommend this cabin, or any other cabins by this owner, Brian Stone.
