The Perfect Getaway
Posted Jun 1, 2012 on Hotels
The Creekwalk is the perfect pick for couples or individuals who want an out-of-the-way getaway in the Smokies. The Inn is about 30 minutes outside of Gatlinburg, and within 10-20 minutes of several trail heads. It's set off of any roads. The area gets perfectly dark at night, giving a great view of the stars and all of the fireflies lighting up the surrounding mountains. The building itself is a well-cared-for repurposed cabin. It features several gathering areas, including a porch and library. The guest rooms range from cramped with a bath across the hall to spacious with a hot tub and private porch. Despite the rustic feel, the room was spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the inn. Janice, the innkeeper, makes a amazing breakfast every morning, and serves it to you on the deck overlooking the creek, or at any of the lovely tables inside. Our breakfasts featured treats like quiche, pancakes with fruit, and french toast, with muffins and fresh juice every morning. Janice is always ready to make suggestions for things to do in the area, from pointing out the best restaurants to helping you find just the right trail to hike. The walls in the inn are thin, and noise travels easily, but we found the atmosphere to be quiet and respectful nonetheless. I would not recommend this inn those who wish to spend most of their time in town. The Creekwalk Inn is a place to get into the Smokies and just relax. It is a genuine country B&B experience at its best.
