My husband and I had the most outstanding bed and breakfast experience of our ives. Kate and John have perfected the entire package: they are personable and generous and their house is beautiful and comfortable and the grounds, OMG, They even have boating down on their water front. And the breakfasts, PERFECTION. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Amazing hosts who are extremely knowledgeable about the area and have myriad recommendations on where to stay. The house and grounds are gorgeous and very clean. Kayaking on the creek is a treat. Full breakfasts every morning that are VERY tasty. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Upon our arrival, we were met by the owners, John and Kate along with Wyatt, their dog. From the start we knew this was going to be an enjoyable stay. Creek Locks is a beautiful B & B that greets you with warmth. Our room was facing the creek and was very inviting. With the old, polished wood plank floors, queen sized bed....that was so comfortable...and a large bathroom, we settled in for the night. The next morning Kate served a delicious breakfast with fresh pineapple, French toast with bananas Forster, bacon, and coffee...everything was delicious. Prior to this, Kate had asked us if we had any preferences, i.e. Vegan, gluten-free, lactose intolerant. She and John joined us for conversation after we consumed this wonderful breakfast. They are both such a warm and interesting couple and I would like to say THANK YOU.

Always Exceeds Expectations

We've stayed at Creek Locks Bed and Breakfast several times, and each time the experience gets even better. John and Kate are first rate hosts. The place is well designed and immaculately kept. Kate's breakfasts are sumptuous and creative. They always try to find activities to do in the area, as well as provide complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon. As usually, we met interesting people during our most recent stay. We already made our next reservation!

The best B&B of all!

Last weekend was my second time I've stayed at Creek Locks! John and Kate are wonderful hosts who have great recommendations for dining, arts, and culture. Breakfast in the morning is delicious and hearty - and Kate is incredibly flexible with changing her dishes to best suit her guests. When I've visited I've stayed in the suite with my two friends. I've slept on the small mattress from the pull out both times and it is absolutely comfortable! The bed is made for one average sized person and does its job well! John is very transparent with the size and it is perfect for me. The room that the pull out bed is in, is perfect for hanging out, watching movies, and planning your day! I fully recommend coming to Creek Locks!
