How to Get There
Don't walk just RUN! We booked 2 nights at a cabin in the mountains , paid $435. We drove over a 1000 miles one way, to get told at 5pm the day of check in, via text messages that they didn't show we had booked the weekend and to send all our documents to them. After 2 hours of TEXTING they apologized, they had double booked our cabin but had 2 other cabins available, one would take 2 hours to clean the other was ready. So we drove another hour to a horrid disgusting crap hole, 1 bed house in town. We opened the door and were greeted with the smell of pet urine that burned your nose. Bugs everywhere, cobwebs and mold on the refrigerator. Felt sorry for our car, the neighborhood was scary. Sent several more text to them told them about the place. We took them up on their offered to refund our money. Ended up having to drive nearly 100 miles to find an open vacancy for the night. Learning experience for us. Give them one star just because they did refund our money. What a waste of vacation time!
If you are looking for rustic charm, have experience in rustic environments and want a "glamping" or "historic" type of feel to your stay, then this Inn may interest you. It is NOT a boutique hotel. The owners will create a beautiful breakfast cooked over the campfire that will warm your heart and soul. It will be creatively prepared and served with love and it will be soooooo delicious.
Here's what you can expect and NOT expect at this Inn:
-Occasional opportunities to see horses on property
-outdoor campfire you build yourself, no special services offered here
-Line dried, hard, crunchy towels
-A wonderful firefly show at night in the field
-A "camp" type of feeling complete with spiders and cobwebs, hornet and wasp nests
right over our breakfast picnic table.
-Friendly people with lovely conversation
-Some maintenance issues...some they will address and some they won't
-Flannel sheets on your bed in summer (really?)
-Help with planning your day in the area
- NO SWIMMING POOL as shown on the website (false advertising)
-Soft slouchy mattress-even when you asked for firm
-Other than breakfast, you are on your own (NO restaurant here as website suggests and states that they have "lobster tail and filet mignon"?...false advertising again...update your website to show what you REALLY have and don't have please!)
-Build your own fire policy
-Broken things in room (coffee maker and tea kettle in cabin didn't work AT ALL)
-Furniture and clutter....LOTS of it.
-Dirty dishes (they pack the dishwasher in double layers so maybe this is why?)
This place needs a good cleaning and new owners. I am sorry to say that although the current owners are lovely to talk to and make a great breakfast, they need to consider retiring and sell because they are trying to save money by doing everything themselves and don't do justice to what could be a wonderful farm. In some respects, it made me stop to reflect on what is important to me and I won't go on a vacation without reading reviews thoroughly in the future.
HOUSEKEEPING and MAINTENANCE issues leave a lot to be desired and I was really ready to leave soon after arrival. Spiders were crawling down the insides of my shower while and there was mold in the shower. We kept thinking about what we would do with this place if we owned it. I kept wanting to organize and clean and move this or that because it was so dirty and cluttered. It made me sad that there was such potential there for an amazing experience for people and when people come on vacation they want clean showers, working appliances and fresh soft towels. They want clean dishes to eat from and don't want to look at tons and tons of clutter. Build a storage room for it all if you must, hire someone to come in and consult you on how to make your place more comfortable for your guests or admit that it is time to retire. It is not fair for people to come on vacation and not get what they paid for or deserve. Possibly to keep the costs low corners have been cut but honestly, we would rather have paid more money to have a stay where we felt clean and could relax. My sense is that times have changed and this couple is more relaxed now and they do not put into the business what it needs to survive in a world that has many wonderful hotels to choose from now.
me and my wife came here for are honeymoon back in September and we were fooled by the pictures, we booked a cabin come to find out that the cabin was located 4 towns away form the office extremely narrow roads and extremely dangerous conditions and the customer service was terrible because there was nobody at the front office when we arrived to check in and when talk on the phone to explain why we wanted are money back and how unstable the roads are for the cabin to be on the guy just laugh at use and hung up the phone we got are money back after explaining are situation to hotels.com but just wanted to let people here know not to be fooled by the pictures.
In Mid-August, I booked a cabin through the owner, Janice. The trip was to celebrate an engagement and so we booked tickets to attractions in the area as well.
Five days before arrival date I receive a message from Janice that she "overbooked" the cabin and has offered me an alternate - a king room at this bed and breakfast. While I appreciate this property, it is not comparable to a secluded cabin.
I made multiple phone calls to Janice, texts, and sent emails. She NEVER responded. I reached someone (husband I am assuming, based on his attitude) at this facility. He offered no other solutions and could not justify why this happened or why I was not offered another cabin. I am not sure I have EVER had worse customer service.
I do not want someone else to experience this and plan to review their properties on each listing. Stay away.
I wrote a review (2) actually since this place is referred to as both Creekwalk Inn and Whisperwood Farms. One of the reviews I noticed was never published. Stayed here last year for (2) nights. Note unless you complain in person upon arrival, this couple that owns the place WILL NOT REFUND YOUR MONEY. I booked through Expedia and they also had no luck in helping to get a refund.
Pictures look like, arrive there, and it's not the same story. Got locked out the first night, pass code was entered, but someone else staying there dead bolted the door so pass code was useless. Had to call the owner, he came over, didn't have a key himself to unlock the door, had to go around until he found an open door... Seriously? Rooms were dirty, wife was bit by a spider, saw one repelling down to the bed while we were in it. We killed it, or at least thought we did.
Wi-Fi was intermittent, but not a big deal since this was a chance to leave technology. Place was hard to find, and no clear signs at the entrance which had a cable stretched across is when we checked in at 3pm. Another couple also passed it due to the same reason. Had breakfast next morning in the dining hall which is also where the owners decided to put a portable sauna, really odd. The biggest concern again would be the dead flies and beetles in the eating areas specifically the windows sills. If you're going for a rustic cabin this is expected but not at $225 a night. Overall a very bad experience, read the other 1 star reviews as well.
If you want to cam indoors, then you probably give it the 3-4 stars everyone else is giving. Janice is a sweet older lady (owner) and adds an ambiance to the place, until you have to ask for your money back, then you get the "Other Janice" that tells you to take a hike.
