About Creekside Escape Log Cabin
If you are looking for the quintessential log cabin getaway on your own private creek, look no further than Creekside Escape. Nestled in the woods with frontage along Old Fields Creek, Creekside Escape offers sleeping for 6 with the addition of a sleeping sunroom as well as a loft. The interior of the cabin is cozy yet charming with cathedral ceilings, gas fireplace and unique touches throughout. The well-equipped kitchen and cozy dining area provide everything you need for cooking and eating during your Escape. Relax with a cup of coffee in the morning on the wraparound deck as you take in the sounds of the bold creek just below, or dine al fresco and take in the views of the surrounding woods. Or simply soak and relax in the brand new hot tub - just added. Creekside Escape delivers the pure mountain getaway experience!
Creekside Escape is located just outside of West Jefferson. Area recreation opportunities include fishing, hiking, biking, canoeing, and tubing all minutes away. Attractions near the cabin include the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Mount Jefferson State Park, New River State Park, Blowing Rock, the quaint downtown of West Jefferson and?of course, Tweetsie Railroad! Start the day hiking the Cascade Falls Trail on the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. After your hike, go for a drive along the Parkway, enjoying the many scenic vistas that characterize America's most beautiful road. Sample the local goods and harvests at the Ashe County Farmers Market and explore the many Art Galleries and cafes in Downtown West Jefferson. Continue on to Blowing Rock and shop at the many unique shops in this quaint mountain town. Next on the agenda, journey to Grandfather Mountain and a harrowing?but awe-inspiring--walk on the Swinging Bridge and a visit to the natural animal habitat. If there's time still left in the day (if not, there's always tomorrow!) visit Thomas the Tank Engine at Tweetsie Railroad or go kayaking or tubing on the New River or bicycling on the flat, scenic road that runs next to it.
If bringing more than one dog an additional $50 pet fee will be added after your reservation is confirmed. Max 2 dogs allowed.

Recent Reviews About This Property
"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 wasnt so hot. We had another fantastic time. Its 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 dont 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."
"First, let me say this is a great cabin and is well equipped. Some things to be aware of: You're only separated from the road by Some trees. Dogs can't go up the stair case. The beds down stairs are high off of the floor. Doesn't work with small dogs. We slept on a mattress on the floor. If it's hot, Bring a fan. We went to Walmart and bought two and left one there. The ceiling fan is not enough to cool the cabin. Love listening to the creek while outside. Great deck! Lots of chairs outside. Nice place in general. Would be perfect in the fall. "
"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."
"My husband and I waited to plan a vacation this year. So when we were looking and found this cabin get away we were pleased. It has sparked our look for a cabin getaway of our own. "
"Delightful and very relaxing stay at this cabin. Enjoyed listening to the running water of the stream while sitting in the hottub. Decor of the cabin was very cozy and warm. The town of West Jefferson was a great place to visit and shop. Especially, the antique shops. The hiking trail and veiw points on Mount Jefferson are a must experience."
"The cabin was wonderful overall. It's in a great location and is very inviting and comfortable. There were a few small things that could be easily mended by the rental company. The driveway had been partially washed away by rain and needed work. There were super minor household issues like the bathroom doorknob sticking and not allowing it to be opened. We also had to fish the deck chairs out of the creek upon arrival. Overall, a great place. We had a great vacation. "
"What a wonderful experience!!! Thank you so much for sharing this escape."
"Very nice clean cabin. The cabin was a great place for a nice relaxing weekend."
"I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway to the mountains. It was just the right size for us two. I was very pleased with the cabin and it's amenities (except there was no pizza cutter). The sound of the creek behind the cabin was so relaxing. "
"Me and my wife stayed a weekend at creekside escape and had a great time. The cabin is quirky but comfortable. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Very private and close to town, you can be in West Jefferson in five minutes. The creek was relaxing during our morning coffee on the deck. The Jacuzzi is very nice, large with colored lights that made it fun. The only complaint is the claw foot tub is too big for the hot water heater. The cabin is roomer than it appears in the pictures. It can accommodate five people, with a day bed in the sun room, a loft bed and nook bed. "
"Awesome cabin down in a valley. Made my girlfriend feel extra special. Had everything we needed, a warm fireplace, and a hot tub. The owners have made the cabin feel just like home. We might make this into an annual trip to the cabin. Relaxation and comfort, can't beat that. Thanks"
"Very good other than almost no hot water. Couldn't use the claw foot tub at all."
"Nice place. Quiet. Convenient to local amenities."
"We loved this cabin. Larger than what the photo may suggest. Close to the town of West Jefferson. We will definitely be back!"
