The Cottage at the Creek is a popular dedicated vacation rental located about 15 minutes from town and most area attractions. It is under new ownership and management as of Jan 2017. WIFI for streaming has been added among full furnishing facelift. It is at the end of a sublime meadow with direct access to S. Sylamore Creek (pronounced like Sycamore). You will experience remote Ozark Hollow Living and most creature comforts for 4 people. This place has a lot of charm and coziness. It feels guilty to admit it but it's probably a favorite of the owner's several vacation rentals. As it's at the end of the meadow, there are lots of exploring options in the woods and field. THE SPACE: Cottage is 650sf+-. It is on one level with a few steps leading up to it. It is located about 100 yards above the floodplain of the creek. You amble down the meadow to access the creek. Creek is good always except in high water events. You can expect it to be about 1-3 foot deep on average. It is spring fed, year round, gin clear and healthy. Trout will run it winter months. Smallmouh fishing is possible during higher water levels. (Please catch and release the smallies) There is spacious bedroom with and a comfy queen bed that looks out on the meadow. The kitchen is fully appointed with a stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a washer and dryer combo for your convenience. For dining there is a bar with seating for four. In the living room area we have two chairs and a very comfortable sleeper sofa. ACCESS: You have access to the meadow and the creek frontage within the property boundaries that are clearly marked. The woods and boulders behind the cottage are great for exploring. There is abundant wildlife such as eagles, turkey and deer. INTERACTION: This is my friend Emily's cabin. I've been living on this creek for 10 years. My hospitality hobby is now my profession. I will manage all details of your stay and insure you have all questions answered and are a satisfied and returning guest! I'm in touch by text, phone and email before during and after your stay. I can help make intros to local musicians, outdoors folks and artisans if you ask. Most likely you'll never see me, but I'm not far at all. Gravity keeps me pretty close to this creek. Speaking of, have you heard about our local craft brewery? Gravity Brew Works? OTHER THINGS OF NOTE: * We rent 2 additional cabins in this valley. One sleeps 2 and the other sleeps 8+. The satellite image included here shows you proximity. *Last 1 mile to the cabin is steep gravel road. Sedans can make it ok. If it snows while you're here, be prepared to stay a while. As mentioned I live downstream a bit with a 4x4 truck and can assist - after it's melted some. If you're iffy on gravel, hills and occasional branches - be forewarned. An old Taurus can and does make the trip often though. *Cell signals iffy depending on carrier and location at the cottage. There is a booster installed. Wifi calling and texting now available on newer model smart phones. Needs to be activated in advance. Also plenty of apps on the market that can keep you connected via wifi. *Dog friendly property. Please state your pet guest intentions upon booking. Dog fees: $45 for 1st dog and $15 for each additional. No more than 3 dogs allowed. We go to great lengths to keep property welcoming to those not dog friendly. (and we have several rules you must adhere to if bringing your dogs. We love dogs by the way and oh boy do they love it here) The cottage is in a valley surrounded on all sides by mountains, and is located 15 minutes from the court square and most area attractions. Upon booking confirmation you will receive an area guide and recommendations from myself and some pals. This will also include more details about the immediate environs. Directions. Keyed access. Trash. Etc
