Had the pleasure of staying in the Katydid, a nice cabin for 2 people. It was well equipped with a full kitchen stocked with the necessary cookware, dishes, and utensils, a gas fireplace, bedroom with a window air conditioner, wireless Internet, cable tv and DVD player ( which we did not use) and nice outdoor items like rockers, porch swing,...

We stayed in the Gatehouse Cottage (Actually just outside the entrance, would probably make more logistic sense to be the office). It was decorated in excellent taste, with all the modern conveniences and comforts and dressed with antiques in tone with the mountain motif. Everything was impeccably clean and in good condition. We loved sitting on the porch swing and... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. The environment is tranquil and the staff is great. They go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. I brought my grandaughter (15) with me and she loved the cabins, the stream and the starry skies. We went horseback riding, to Sliding Rock, stargazed with a telescope and hiked to the top of...

My wife and I spent the weekend in the Whippoorwill cabin. Great accommodation.

What a wonderful place for what we wanted and needed. To relax and get away for a couple days.Because our original cabin ( The Cricket) was undergoing renovations, Kate upgraded my husband and I to Willow Creek. Great choice!

I was skeptical about our lodging, having never been to the area, but it took 5 minutes to feel perfectly at home in an immaculate cabin by a beautiful brook. It was truly love at first visit. But..... the best part was the management. We met three lovely ladies who charmed us right out of our socks. They were efficient,... More

We were very favorably impressed with the size, condition, and amenities of cabin #5 (Whippoorwill). Loved the antique and rustic furnishings, not to mention the granite countertops and large fridge. Two porches with swings, rockers, and settees -- outstanding -- and then there was the brook and the birdsong. Some folks might not like hearing a rooster from across the... More

Thanks for the review. And thank you for your suggestions. The screens went up on the cabins today. I take them off in the winter to let more light in. I was a bit late getting them up this year. I don't see the existing cabins getting dishwashers, but it is a consideration as well as additional baths with the... More

Mountain Springs was the perfect place for my wife and I to stay for our honeymoon. We stayed in Cabin #8, The Chickadee, which was a good fit for us.
