Our Log Cabin Bed and Breakfast is a short scenic drive from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Knoxville and The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Poised just 63 miles from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville on one side, and 19 miles from Gatlinburg and its neighbors on the other, Creekwalk Inn Bed and Breakfast and Cabin Rentals is a centrally located inn for your exploring both North Carolina and Tennessee. Delicious breakfasts served at private tables farm to table, 4 course dinner by reservation. All baths private, three with jacuzzis. We suggest a waterfall hike with picnic lunch to Hen Wallow Falls, trail head in the Cosby entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a guest favorite. Summer brings fun at our favorite swimming holes and Pigeon River whitewater rafting in Hartford, just 10 miles away. Plenty of Great Smoky National Parks hiking books and trail maps to plan your adventures in the area. Closest inn to Mount Cammerer, named the best hike in the southeast in Backpacker Magazine. This is a rugged trail of 12 miles so we will get up early to serve you a hiker's breakfast and pack your lunch Then sleep in the next day to recuperate! Winter days we serve indoors by the fireplace and in the library/living room area. Summers it is hard to be indoors and the large decks overlooking the creek beckon for breakfast. Enjoy our on farm cabin or if you prefer a more self-serve vacation, try our off farm cabins close to Gatlinburg at .agatlinburgcabin.

Our 40th Anniversary

3.4 on July 27, 2015

The room was quite tiny on the backside but their are much larger rooms available. Janice more than made up for it with her hospitality and delicious and unique breakfasts. She also had teas, coffee, sodas and wine available for guest. The large Inn has many nice areas to sit and relax and the creek at our backdoor was an added bonus. She even packed us a nice lunch to take for the day we went into the Smokies. No internet connection in cabin but there is wifi on porch of owners cabin. Very nice country area. And the Carvers Apple Orchard restaurant nearby is a great place for dinner.

Our March Vacation

5 on March 04, 2015

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins offered. Janice was very nice and helpful at assisting me place my reservation on a very short notice. The cabin is fairly close to Gatlinburg but still in a very secluded area. The cabin offers everything a couple needs to enjoy a week or a weekend. The pictures on the website were exactly what we walked into. It is a very rustic cabin and has a wonderful view. We were in awe from the moment we walked through the front door. We would highly recommend and will likely come back next time we visit the area.

Perfect, romantic getaway!

My husband and I stayed in both a cabin and a room at the B&B. Both locations were amazing! Janice was an amazing hostess and made everyone feel like one big family. The rooms and cabin are clean, extremely comfortable, relaxing and exactly what you need to step away from the busy world for a little while and enjoy everything that Mother Nature has to offer. AMAZING breakfasts, hiking, cold dips in the flowing rivers, horses and pups meandering around the property, close enough to civilization but far enough away to forget about it all - what more can you ask for? We will be back again in the near future!

My husband and I spent five nights at Creekwalk Inn. It was the most incredible experience; the room, the inn itself, the beautiful grounds, the creative gourmet breakfast each morning, the pure beauty of your surroundings. Janice has put together all the details to make this inn what it is today. In addition, her advice and guidance on the trails - what the mountains and area has to offer is invaluable. We cannot say enough about our stay, other than simply stating; SPECTACULAR!

Honeymoon in a Horse lovers paradise!!!!

5 on June 12, 2013

This place is absolutely amazing. We want to move there!! We enjoyed gourmet, organic, healthy breakfasts and bonded with the other guests in the house. Janice has five free graze horses. You walk out to go to your car and there are five horses right on the front lawn!! Its so amazing! We actually spent most of our time on the grounds surrounding the cabin. I mentioned that I always wanted to learn how to play the banjo, and Janice called a friend, and I got a lesson right there in the dining room. WE CANNOT STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW MUCH FUN WE HAD!!!! Also, I'm fanatical about cleanliness. I wont stay just anywhere. This place is very clean. I also have problems with my back and have a hard time sleeping when I travel. We ended up oversleeping because the beds were so comfy and soft. All in All, this place is amazing and the innkeeper, Janice....well lets just say we feel like we have extended family now, haha! Cant wait to go back next year!

Incredible Experience

5 on June 04, 2013

This was our first visit to a B&B and we loved every aspect of Creekwalk Inn! Perfect location about 30 minutes from Gatlinburg, so you are away from all of the tourist congestion but not too far away to get out and enjoy all the activities. Minutes off of I-40 and from NC so Asheville and Cherokee are close enough for day trips. The owner Janice is so pleasant and makes every guest feel like family. She made 2 wonderful breakfasts for us while we were there for the weekend, both unique with fresh local ingredients, right down to the sour marmalade she was making when we checked in! It was almost hard to leave the patio after breakfast as it was so easy to sit and talk with her and the other guests. The patio overlooks the creek, so you get to enjoy the sounds of the water and the birds as you enjoy your breakfast. Every room is unique and very cozy. You can arrange to have dinner cooked for you at the Inn through an outside company. We didn't utilize that service but another couple did and they had nothing but excellent remarks. When you make your reservations be sure to ask about the dinner services! We definitely plan on returning to Creekwalk in the future!

Excellent Experience - Love the Creek!

I've returned many times to this quiet place in the country and ask for the Ramsey Cascade room with it's door out to the creekside, where I even once saw an otter swimming! Janice and Tifton go out of their way to accommodate their guests, and the breakfast they serve is outstanding.

Overpriced and Uncomfortable

1.8 on October 15, 2012

We recently stayed in the Balsam Mountain room at this inn. The photos on the website do not accurately depict the room; the adjacent room has a bathroom that offers virtually no insulation against sound; therefore, we could literally hear every sound from the neighboring bathroom. In addition, we could hear the other guests using their in-room spa. It was quite uncomfortable. The room offered little in the way of toiletries and did not have a coffee machine or alarm clock in the room, as their website suggests. The room and bathroom were very crowded and outdated. The windows had old horizontal blinds on them and the windows were always covered in condensation, so we could not enjoy the view mentioned on their website. We paid $159 per night for this room and, although the breakfast was good and the packed lunches were a nice touch, we felt that the room was very overpriced. After seeing the room and facility in person, we would expect to pay $75 per night, at most, when compared to other facilities in the Smoky Mountains. We were never offered breakfast in our room, as the website suggests. When we requested a slight adjustment to a breakfast and lunch, the inn-keeper seemed to be very annoyed by the change (although she did make the changes). This is about a 35 to 40 minute drive from Gatlinburg and the main entrances to the Smoky Mountain National Park, so if you plan to spend a lot of time seeing the sights (besides hiking near this inn), plan accordingly. The parking was limited, gravel driveway has potholes, and we had to carry our luggage through long, wet grass. In addition, there is no outdoor lighting, making it difficult to navigate from the car to the inn. Not impressed.

Creekwalk Inn and Cabins Highly Recommended

Just returned from a fabulous get away at Creekwalk Inn and Cabins. So very memorable and full of pleasant surprises. Janice, Tifton and Kelsey are so warm and welcoming and consistently go above and beyond to ensure their guests are comfortable and having a pleasurable stay in lovely surroundings. The pie baking class taught by Janice was so much fun and gave all of the guests a chance to interact and share some laughs and recipes. Janice, Tifton and Kelsey make it all look so easy because they genuinely love what they do and definitely do it all so well. The breakfasts are outstanding and creative. Janice cooks right out there on the deck above the creek and chats with you as she piles her delicious creations on your plate. There's music and local fresh flowers on the table, a fire burning and the creek meandering below. If only every day could start like this. Brown bag picnic lunch surprises are provided for guests as they leave for a day of hiking in the beautiful Smokies and Janice and Tifton offer some great suggestions and a trail map for hikes. We stayed at the cabins which were a distance away but were secluded and charming with unusual rhodendron beds. The rooms are the Inn are lovely also. Private dinner for 2, 7 course dinner by Kelsey was exceptional. Can we give this entire stay 10 stars? Kevin and Janet M. Virginia
