IRRESISTABLE CHARM AND TRANQUILITY
If you're looking for the quintessential log cabin getaway on your own private creek, you've found it! Nestled in the woods along Old Fields Creek, Creekside Escape is the ultimate in charm and personality. It's a small home with a big heart, in an unbeatable location.
The setting is utter perfection for anyone seeking stress-relief and the serenity of nature. Although the trickling song of a "babbling brook" may sound cliché, there truly is a unique and irresistible lullaby quality to it that eases the soul. Enjoy the delight of just sitting on the deck, or at the edge of the creek, trailing your feet in the water.
Unlike many mountain cabins, this home also offers a grassy yard for the kids and dogs play, complete with lawn chairs, a hammock, a fire pit and a tiny, separate "studio" cabin - a great escape for reading or indulging your creative energy. The spacious deck is equipped with comfortable seating and a dining area, including a propane grill. Since the deck is just steps from the kitchen, you'll find this to be an unbeatable spot for tranquil - and yet convenient - dining al fresco. You won't know true relaxation until you've been in a hot tub in the woods, surrounded by trees, listening to the creek, with stars overhead.
The interior of the cabin is cozy, with a cathedral ceiling, gas fireplace and unique, appealing decor. Tasteful decorating fills the cabin. The open floor plan inspires socializing, as it brings the kitchen, lounging and entertainment areas together, directly adjacent to the large deck. The well-equipped kitchen accommodates wonderful entertaining and at-home meals, complete with a dishwasher for easy clean-up. After dinner, enjoy the fireplace and TV from the attractive and comfortable couches.
You'll find a number of sleeping options in this well-designed cabin, including a loft with a queen-sized bed, a delightful enclosed sun porch, also with a queen, and a hidden cubby-hole "bedroom" kids will adore.
This home gives you the chance to get away from it all, at an affordable price, in a setting you'll still think of fondly, years later. And you can still connect to your world with wireless internet and satellite TV.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"An excellent stay overall!! Cabin is exactly what we expected and the sound of the creek was just incredible. We are strongly considering another trip there in the fall. Our only little nit picky criticism is wishing the stairs were a bit bigger up to the loft, we ended up leaving our suitcases downstairs which wasn't a big deal for us. Loved the place though and miss being there terribly. "
"Very quiet, private, yet close to major roads in the area. Close to hiking, well outfitted, comfortable. "
"The creek side cabin was cozy, warm, beautiful, and well equipped for relaxing. It was the absolute perfect place to stay for our winter vacation. Although it was complete on its own, it is in a convenient location to visit all that the area has to offer."
"I couldn't have had a better weekend vacation. The cabin was perfect in all aspects"
"We loved the cabin and totally enjoyed West Jefferson and surrounding towns. Did a ton of shopping and scenic driving. My only advice would be to add some outdoor lighting on the deck for evening, we love to sit outside by the creek and it was so dark, had to use a flashlight. "
"The same things that didn't work (stove, dining room light, lamps) described in the 10/10 visitors from Raleigh were still in same condition for me. Cobwebs on the note board by the kitchen sink and dusty bookshelf area.... Place was peaceful and in good location. I will come back. "
" The setting by the creek with gazebo, hot tub hammocks was lovely & private. However, maintenance needs attention. Broken see saw, tired, old porch furniture, worn sofas, 2 lights broken at switch,non working clock, couldn't turn on dining area light fixture. 2 downstairs beds are in nooks (not a room ) All heat provided by fireplace gas logs. It works but takes a long time to warm.One burner out on stove. About one third of outside lights work."
Response from StayBlueRidge:We are very sorry to hear that some things did meet your expectations. We do want our guest to enjoy their stay. We encourage all guests to contact us upon arrival if there is anything they are not pleased with. We are happy to do whatever we can to ensure that you enjoy your visit.
"Quiet, yet close to town."
"Got just what we were looking for: quiet, relaxation (especially the hot tub), much cooler than the city, and only 2 hours away. Everything was as advertised, cabin is nicely decorated and all furnishings and such were very adequate and abundant. Would definitely stay there again."
"Nice, cozy, quaint cabin getaway. Love the feeling of isolation even though you are close to everything. Would definitely stay here again."
"Another great experience! We enjoyed the small cabin and it's great location close to West Jefferson. We love visiting this quaint town. The cabin is a short drive to Todd and Fleetwood areas as well. We always go to the Green Valley Park near Todd. The cabin is warm and cozy for a couple or small family. The creek running through the property is relaxing to listen to it as you sit on the deck or by a campfire and roast marshmallows. The hot tub on the deck is inviting and relaxing even when it's cold outside. We enjoyed the fireplace and it warms the cabin nicely. I love the layout of the small kitchen. We look forward to our next visit!"
"We loved this cabin! Perfect hideaway after a long day of hiking in Grayson Highlands.
Clean, comfortable and cozy!"
"Everything was perfect from the time we arrived to the time we left. The fireplace and hot tub were both on awaiting our arrival which was perfect and no setup needed. It was the perfect and most quaint getaway stay and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much for sharing you're perfect Mountain getaway home with us."
"This little cabin is adorable! The pictures do not do it justice. It is in a central location between all the “hot spots”, which was nice if you plan on visiting all of them like we did. The only complaint I have is that we did not get to stay longer!"
"Had a wonderful peaceful weekend. The hot tub was clean and very relaxing. The house is very quaint and clean. We had a wonderful Tim shopping, relaxing and just spending time together. "
"We had an amazing week. Can't wait to come back"
"Nice get-a-way from everyday routine. Can't beat the creek in the backyard."
"We arrived around 10pm so it was very dark but the moment we stepped out of the car and heard the stream we knew we had found the peaceful escape we were hoping for. The cabin inside was so cute and well maintained. The only down side is the light switches are very difficult to find and the gas log fireplace inside didn't work. However since we spent most of our time on the porch that wasn't a big deal for us. I will absolutely be booking this cabin again!"
"The cabin is really easy to find....especially after you pass the driveway the first time. It is really private even though it is next to the road. It doesn't take long at all to get to town for supplies or shopping or just meeting folks downtown. Don't forget to checkout the Churches of the Frescoes that are in the area as well. The cabin is quite comfortable and many places to sleep if you want. We will probably be back very soon."
"Great getaway. Relaxing. Cabin is very cute. My son loved playing in creek.
Only complaint is the water in shower stinks like rotten eggs.
Would definitely recommend."
"Had a great time relaxing at Creekside Escape - very peaceful setting for a quick weekend getaway! The property was very clean and fit the description provided on the website perfectly!"
"Go when the wind dies down in the mountains...late June is best. Lot's of deer to see and even a bear or two if ur lucky. Try trout 's fun and you get to eat well afterwards. "
"Cabin was outstanding. The property was very nice. It was so nice sitting on the deck or by the creek in the evenings. We really like the area. We have been staying in Ashe and Allegheny counties for over twenty years but this was the first time in a cabin. It was a wonderful experience and we hope to be back to Creekside Escape in the future."
"We are so grateful that this wonderful cabin’s owners share this beautiful property. The cabin is comfortable and welcoming, the site is serene but filled with life and interesting, the rental management company was helpful and considerate. There are lots of things to do, indoors and outdoors, very close by. But relaxing at the cabin, listening to the creek and the breeze, was more than an activity, it was a gift."
"Love the location! Close to West Jefferson where we enjoyed eating breakfast at Hillbilly Grill and supper at Smokey Mountain Barbecue! We always visit Ashe County Cheese Factory, usually more than once! Small but perfect for me and my husband! Enjoyed sitting outside looking at and listening to the creek behind the cabin. The hot tub was very relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit!"
"We loved this cute little cabin. A few little problems upon arriving but the wonderful rental company took care of things right away. We loved sleeping in sunroom listening to the creek. Quirky light switches..or trying to find them. But cabin has everything needed for a great stay. Close to everything but you still feel extremely private. Thank you for allowing us to occupy this cute little cabin. Cabin was extremely clean and well kept."
"Nice place with nice views"
"Our visit to the Creekside Escape Log Cabin was Fully Wonderful!! The location is perfect as all the amenities for the cabin. We would choose this place again!!"
"This was one of the best weekends ever. The cabin is cute, clean and cozy. It has everything you need. The fireplace, tub and hot tub were my favorites."
"close to town but private. fireplace is great. "
"A great place to relax and unwind."
"We had a wonderful long weekend at the cabin. The stream was so peaceful and the layout of the cabin was precious. Loved how close to town it was and how it still felt like you were deep in the woods. The hot tub was such a treat. "
"This cabin was beautiful and the yard was relaxing, sitting by a brook while roasting marshmallows in a fire pit was,soooo relaxing. Plenty of amenities including wi fi and a full kitchen. Great stay well worth it."
"This cabin is so perfectly situated! It is secluded and quiet, but close to downtown and lots of outdoor activities. We absolutely loved it and were really able to unplug and relax."
"This was our second stay. Did experience two problems. Lack of hot water and hot tub not clean. Otherwise, a very cozy cabin. Will stay again. "
"We were so pleased to find this little gem! It was clean, cozy and such a value for all it had to offer! "
"Good in the woods location, private,diappointed that hot tub would not go above 99, all the house lighters for the grill (3) were empty, no closet or dresser space, kitchen short on storage space. Despite a few let downs it was a nice place."
"Loved the cabin. The location was perfect. "
"Loved every minute spent here. Cooler temps and especially sitting on deck and listening to the babbling brook. My ONLY complaint - no coverings on windows - was a little unnerving. At least, have the option to close at night. Other than that, absolutely loved the property."
"My only complaint is, I hope everyone does not enjoy the place as much as we did...or we'll never find the place available in the future!"
"My girlfriend and I rented around Valentines Day earlier in the year. We loved the cabin so much we decided to come back while the weather wasn’t so hot. We had another fantastic time. It’s definitley a great place for a couple or small family to get away. Secluded, but close to various things to do and shopping. We love using the kitchen and cooking or grilling when we don’t feel like getting out. The hot tub is always amazing...we love a good soak in the evenings! We definitely recommend!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thanks you for the wonderful review. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
"I loved the hot tub. The stream was so peaceful. The view was beautiful. And West Jefferson was only about 10 minutes away. I liked the Famers Market and Ashe County Park. The Hillbilly Grill was fun too. "
"Peaceful and quiet "
"We had a great time on this little weekend getaway! When we arrived there was about 5 inches of snow on the ground and it was beautiful. The cabin was perfect with plenty of room for all of us. There were lots of games and movies to keep us occupied until the snow melted. It was a perfect weekend!"
" We have stayed at this cabin twice. Once as a couple and the second time with our six month old. Such a perfect cabin! Beautifully decorated, functional, better than described, romantic, beautiful setting, warm for the winter, and excellent location. We definitely plan to return one day. Great for a couple, Small family, kids, etc. it was clean and better than advertised. "
"very good need better instructions for use of hot tub Big ant problem!!!"
"My girlfriend and I decided to have a little getaway, so we drove up for a Friday through Sunday stay. The weather wasn't the best, but this cabin was an excellent place. Secluded enough, but close enough to neighbors and the town if you needed anything. The cabin was nice and cozy and very well kept. The hot tub was AMAZING and we had enough breaks in the rain to enjoy it. We will absolutely be renting this little gem again in the very near future."
"Loved it! Very cozy, warm and inviting! It even snowed! Would love to come again!"
"Our family really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. My daughter loved the hidden bed and my boys were excited to stay in the loft. We felt right at home and can't wait to go back!"
"We really enjoyed the cabin on the creek. Centrally located to lots of things to do.The best part was being there and doing nothing! Very relaxing. Thanks!"
"We enjoyed everything with the exception of the bed which was just a mattress laying on a wooden board. Loved the views and the sounds of the creek behind the cabin. "
"I am hesitant to provide a review about our stay at Creekside Escape because I want to keep this gem a secret! I was apprehensive about renting a cabin sight unseen. The cabin exceeded my expectations and I was thrilled! Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The house was clean, everything we needed was available and we couldn't be more satisfied!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:We appreciate the wonderful review and look forward to your next visit!
"This property is a wonderful hidden escape and the only regret I had was that I didn't stay longer. I enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and drifting off to the sounds of the river. The cabin is well stocked and pretty much anything you need is provided. I am really looking forward to renting from Ashe High Country again very soon. "
"This is a nice property for the money, the fees and taxes were a bit steep though. Nice location to be away from the chaos of Boone yet close enough to get down there."
"Best rental we've ever had. The cabin was conveniently located, clean, and well appointed. It felt completely secluded despite being right off the road. The staff was very friendly and accommodating during booking. We will most definitely be renting there again!"
"My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the "Creekside Escape" for our 30th anniversary. The cabin was nicely tucked away and the sounds of the creek bubbling by were awesome. The cabin was very clean and other than chasing the carpenter ants the appeared occasionally was a perfect getaway for our extended weekend. The instructions on arrival were a little confusing. They stated that the controls for the air conditioning were over the fireplace which was not the case. We did locate the air conditioner in the loft and once we got the temperature adjusted, we were very comfortable. We also note that the bulbs in the track light in the kitchen as well as the light over the stove were not working so lighting was a little dim. We spent our first day visiting West Jefferson's shops. Most of our time was spent chilling at the cabin. This was the first time we have rented a cabin and will definitely do so again in the future. "
"We had a great time in the cabin. The house was very cute, very well put together. We enjoyed the hot tub, and my kids loved playing in the creek behind. Only thing I will say, is the house was closer to the road than we thought. Can't really tell from the photos, they make it look more secluded than it is. But overall we had a great time. "
"This is our second time staying at the Creekside Escape and we will be back for another dose within the year! We recommend this to all different types of groups or just a couples getaway. Very clean, hottub very clean and ran well. Needed to pick up propane but the grill worked just fine! Cable and tv was nice to have since it rained 2 of the 4 days. We got to lounge and watch movies all day!"
"My girlfriend and I spent four days at the Creekside Escape. It was a great way to spend my birthday. Perfect romantic vacation. We love the mountains and this cabin made it even better."
"We loved the feel and look of the cabin! Truly a genuine log cabin that could "
"We loved our stay in this quaint, quiet cabin. We had a very relaxing stay with no cares in the world!"
"The best birthday ever!! We arrived on January 6 and it started snowing just before we arrived. We woke the next morning to about 8 inches of snow! The cabin was perfect!! Very comfortable and homey feeling! Great location! Can't wait to return for another trip...hopefully in February! The creek, the house, and the yard were all awesome!! We were very happy with this rental"
"Everything was great. No hidden problems. Hot tub was as enjoyable as it gets. "
"Cozy, wonderful get a away!!"
"Beautiful cabin tucked away from everything. Has everything you could possibly need. Love all the nicknaks and fun personalization in the cabin. Bed upstairs is very comfy. Our dog couldnt get up there because of the spiral staircase and he kept whining so i had to move to the downstairs bed. Our dog really enjoyed the property and the creek. We loved the hot tub outside and the fireplace inside. We are planning our next stay! Everything was perfect!"
"We spent 5 nights at Creekside Escapes on our honeymoon. We were very happy and pleased with the cabin, a lovely mountain getaway! We loved the idea of leaving bird food for the guests to put into the bird feeder. We enjoyed sitting porch watching the birds come in to eat. The property was very neat and clean. The only suggestion I can make is that it may be better to have some lighting walking to the hot tub and around the hot tub itself. It is very dark and hard to see to put the hot tub cover on. Other than that a perfect stay!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. Congrats on your marriage and we are thrilled that you enjoyed your honeymoon. We appreciate your suggestion and we are working on that. Thank you again for staying with us!
"This place was cute, and rustic. Loved hearing the creek as we sat on the porch. I wish there had been another bathroom, but overall, a great place to spend a weekend."
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. We are happy that you had a wonderful girls weekend. Thank you for staying with us and hopefully the girls weekend will continue here in the mountains! Hope to see you soon!
"My family of 4 had an amazing 5 day, 4 might stay at this cabin. It was fully stocked, clean, and felt like home. We loved the deck, hot tub, rushing creek and being secluded from the road-yet conveniently close to town . We hope to visit creekside escape again soon!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. We are happy that you and your family had an enjoyable stay. We hope to see you soon!
"Creekside Escape was a wonderful place to come back to after exploring Ashe County & Blue Ridge Parkway. Really enjoyed the wonderful, fully equipped cabin with the creek right outside. West Jefferson area is a hidden gem. Wish we had an additional night or two to spend there, maybe another time."
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. We are glad that you had a wonderful time! Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you soon!
"Considering the cabin is just off the road, it is very secluded and quiet. The sound of the creek was very soothing and made for some good sleeping. The property was very clean and well maintained. It's also close to town of West Jefferson and it's many shops. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your response. We are glad that you had a wonderful time with good sleep. Thank you again for staying with us. We hope to see you again soon!
"Unfortunately, we were only in town for a wedding and did not have much time to enjoy the cabin, but it was lovely! Very peaceful, plenty to do for the kids, just an overall gem. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you wasn't able to enjoy this cabin like you had wanted. You must put this back on your list to visit us again!
"From the moment you drive through the dense landscape and enter the idyllic grounds, you are transported to a magical place. Everything about this rental is unique and inviting, touching all your senses and instilling one with a sense of peace. Not too big, not too small....just perfect for our family of 5 adults/teens. Beds are comfy, kitchen is well stocked, as is the bathroom. Water pressure is a bit low and it was a little warm with no AC (we visited in mid August), but not a crisis. It is about 13 miles from App State...a bit further than we imagined but a beautiful drive nonetheless. This is quite the find and I would strongly reccomend the experience! We will definitely be back....."
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your review. We love our App State Mountaineers! We are glad that you and your family was able to enjoy this rental. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
"My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at this beautiful place. Our favorite memories are the sounds of the babbling brook and the rustling of the leaves in the forest. The cabin had everything to have a romantic getaway and loved the hot tub! We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and enjoyed the local state parks. "
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for your review. Happy 25 years to you and your husband. We are so glad that you had a great time to remember!
"It was a delightful experience! The cabin was quaint, ecclectic, cheerful and in a convenient yet quiet setting. The only problem was some ants were in the kitchen."
"This is a great place for peace and quite. The only thing we regret was the size of the beds. They were very small and cramped. Also the beds were not for the elderly as they were very high from the floor. My mother had to be helped in and out of the beds because of her artificial knee joints. Other than that this house is at an amazingly secluded location that is so convenient to West Jefferson. A great time we had."
"we had a wonderful time. enjoyed sitting outside listening to the water. We love the natural springs. Nice quiet house would love to come back another time. "
"We lounged on the deck, soaked in the tub, hiked at Grayson Highlands, and settled back in under the stars. What perfect privacy and the lull of the babbling brook. "
"Great getaway hidden but close to town. Only one thing I would suggest would be to gravel the drive or parking area. When it rained it was muddy."
"Great location nice and private clean and quite "
"A great little cabin. What a nice surprise. We will be back."
"We had a great time. We have watched Tiny House Nation and wondered what it might be like to live like that. It was great! The only problem we had were finding the light switches. Other than that it was like living in a play house."
"My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and it was amazing!!! The property is so tucked away and hidden but also 5 minutes from town! Perfect!!! Everything was ready to use and clean! The creek out back is beautiful and easy to get to. Our favorite was using the hot tub. SO relaxing! Soaking and listening to the creek was exactly what we needed! We have told everyone we know about it and cannot wait to get back asap!!"
Response from StayBlueRidge:Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with others! This is a great escape!
"Relaxing...restful...secluded...close to retail... Try it...you'll love it."
"The cottage was quaint, comfortable and perfect."
"Secluded cabin nestled down in a private
intimate spot with a beautiful creek running right behind it. The road is close but not much traffic and it doesn't interfere. The inside is so cozy, beautiful and clean. We will return!"
"You will not be disappointed with your stay here."
"This cabin is just minutes from downtown West Jefferson, yet sitting on the deck you feel a million miles away. It is very secluded and has great creek running through the backyard, which is great to hear while you sleep on the porch bed! The cabin has such much character and is very clean! We have stayed here twice and I wish we could live here!!"
"We had our children and 1 and 3 year old grandchildren come to stay at the cabin as we had been there before. The downstairs loft beds are comfortable, but not safe for little children. The upstairs bed is alright for children.
The internet never worked while we were there, but there is a house phone. The cell signal is NOTHING for AT&T phone service, so wifi is pretty important to have. There were two codes in the book and neither one worked, even after we tried to reset the device.
The creek is amazing, the driveway was grated nicely and the rocking chairs in the screened in porch were nice, as was the hammock.
There was no outside trash can for us to put our trash as we checked out on Sunday, like it says in the instruction binder."
"We had a girls weekend with 5 girls. There was more than enough room. The bathroom was very large so not enough space wasn't an issue. We liked how there were 3 different sleeping areas so you didn't feel like you were on top of each other. I slept in the bed off from the kitchen with the windows up and could hear the water from the creek and it was amazing. It rained the entire weekend but that didn't stop us. The hot tub was still enjoyable and we still made it into town for a wine and beer tasting and picked up some cheese at the cheese factory. It was close enough to town where you could run to the store if you forgot something but the cabin felt completely private. The pictures do not do this place justice. It's very cute and personal. We're already planning another trip. Cannot say enough about how great this place was and how great the renters were to work with. Some of the friendliest people I've ever met. Thanks for a great weekend!!"
"Cabin was secluded and perfect. Far better than advertised and exceeded our expectations. Very cozy and romantic. We will definitely be back to this cabin in the future. Property was very clean and maintained. The creek was amazing. "
"Sweet little retreat by the stream. We enjoyed our stay and found the kitchen to be WELL-equipped. Since it rained lots we did not get out too much."
"We arrived on a Saturday evening - had a little trouble finding the property as there was only a small green sign on the ground with the house numbers on it. Though it was near the road, the trees did a good job of making it feel very secluded. The creek was a lovely sound addition to the property. The cabin was well equipped and a pleasant place to get away from it all. We spent five days simply relaxing and were able to do that well at Creekside Escape."
"Close to mountain view. Hot tub and creek were super...climbing spiral staircase was difficult. Wifi always showed poor signal. Even when standing next to the unit, we could not get on. Hot water ran out quickly. Cluttered cabin...just too much stuff. Even with all of these complaints, we had a great time and would consider coming again."
