I went on-line and booked a 2 night reservation for one of their cabins. The on-line reservation system worked fine and I received a confirmation number. We invited family from out of state to come with us. Four days later I get a phone call and was told that it was a minimum of a four day stay over a holiday weekend and that their on-line booking system made a mistake. They told me that I either had to extend my stay or cancel my reservation. I even reached out to the owners, who didn't care and canceled my reservation. Most companies out there will take care of their customers when they make the mistake, obviously the Christopher Creek Cabins don't value their customers, they are just there to make money. I hear it is a great place to stay, however I will never even consider making a reservation there in the future.
Loved cabin, creek and staff but the otherwise charming and warm cabin interior is ruined by screaming bright horrid enviro correct mercury filled light bulbs and low flow shower heads etc
Don't impose your global warming Al Gore fallacy's on paying customers
The creek was absilutely breath taking. The propery is beautiful and so green it feels like you're in the Amazon. If you want the feel of "roughing it" without relly roughing it then this is the place. It was really neat to stay in a real log cabin, but yea have all the comforts of home. We will be back!
OK.....great location and you can't get much closer to the creek. The problem we had was the cabin was filthy and full of spider websmost notably the upstairs loft
Pleas make sure that you fully understand the reservations are non-cancellable and non refundable and shame on me for not knowing this prior to...(my fault as it is clearlyt stated on the web site). Anything that is non-cancellable and non refundable says something right off the bat !!!
OK, I have stayed at hundreds if not thousands of places throughout the world and have to tell you that for the amount of money we paid it was not even close to worth it. The location was great and facility (loved it, very peaceful and relaxing) but, the cabin was loaded with spider webs and black widow egg sacks in the cracks and crevices and in an old dirty shirt I found behind the bed down stairs....... After seeing the first web I made a very detailed inspection of the cabin and also found the loft was extremely filthy with all kinds of crumbs between the beds and walls in addition to more webs and dead spiders..
I understand this is in the wilderness and you will have those things but (spider webs and egg sacks inside the cabin) i would expect to be cleaned up by them not me!!
The thing that we had have the most heartburn over is we were told we had to surrender the key to the cabin when we told the front desk we were leaving the very next day to find someplace else to stay!!!
Now if I have bought and paid for those nights that are non refundable, what gives them the right to take my key? all they should care about is getting it back on my checkout day.
So we have no idea if it was re-rented or not.......I think this is bad business !!!
I'm sure many people love this place.....but for my review I say look someplace else!
I found the parking a little tricky to get in and out.. We all loved the cabin itself and the beds were great! Was a beautiful place for myself and my family - total of 5 in all along with 3 dogs. We fished out the back door. Am hoping to return this Sept. for my birthday again!
At first glance, the cabin was very cute. But after "living" there for two days, the flaws were evident. It wasn't as clean as it appeared, the beds were HORRIBLE, the bathroom was much too small and we had to request t-paper and towels.
Eight of us plus a baby stayed in the Founders Cabin. It was filthy; the floors were dirty and dusty. The attic/loft was dusty with no sheets. The dishtowels were dirty and greasy. The bathtub was rusty. The dishes were dusty and the pots and pans had all the Teflon scratched off. The screens were full of spider webs. We found a couple of black widows out on the patio. The beds were lumpy and we don't even know if the sheets were changed. The brown towels had bleach stains on them. In addition, there wasn't enough gravel to cover the driveway and we almost were stuck in the mud.
On the brighter side - the area was beautiful, the creek was fun to fish in and the thunderstorms were magnificent. We had a barbeque pit right outside our cabin and we stayed most of the time there making smores and cooking.
We visited in July and the place was so green it was like a tropical rainforest. The cabins are real log cabins and the knotty pine wood is simply wonderful! Althought there was a nearby restaurant because we had a full kitchen we cooked all of our own meals. Places like this are normall twice as much money a night. I just hope they keep their prices reasonable for a long time. We will be back many times!
Stayed at Christopher Creek Lodge recently and had a fantastic experience. The new owner welcomed us warmly upon arrival. Our cabin was right by the creek, sat out on the patio relaxing, listening to the creek... saw some other folks fishing into it a couple cabins down so we might try that next time. It was just a wonderful, quick getaway from the Valley... will definitely be going back.
Christopher Creek Lodge & Cabibns
is a great rustic place. Yes you have to bring your own sheets and blankets....Hey..you know they are clean at least. Thats for the cabins. I stayed in one right on the creek. They have a bathroom kitchen, all cooking utensils a woodburning stove in the kitchen livingroom area. A Barbeque for cooking, and a porch steps away from the babbling creek.
There is a big old firepit everyone gathers around at night. Gary, who runs the place is very accomidating, to your needs.
My daughter and I were walking to the store down the road and he came up to us with a big old wagon for us to use with a pillow and cookies in it for my daughter. We had a great time. Going back for Thanksgiving. Do reccomend you book at least a month in advance.
You can get a place if your lucky a week in advance. Its rustic but thats what we went for.
