Great experience and superb hosts. Couldn't have asked for a prettier environment and comfortable stay. The room was excellent and beautifully furnished. Breakfast was delicious and delightful. Randy and Marilyn gave great recommendations for area places and made the weekend memorable. Can't wait to come back. Definitely the place to stay in Athens.

Wonderful food, cozy cabins, bass fishing and beautiful scenery located in a very secluded wooded area, made our 40th wedding anniversary a very special one to remember. Our hosts helped make our stay perfect in every way. See you again soon Oak Creek B & B!

Randell and Marilyn were awesome hosts! The room was so cute and well maintained. Everything we needed was available! The grounds were absolutely beautiful and peaceful. We loved fishing on the pond, hiking in the trails and the wonderful conversation and breakfast each morning. We would definitely recommend Oak Creek Bed and Breakfast who wants a little piece of heaven on earth.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at Oak Creek B & B! It was a quiet peaceful rest from our hectic Houston schedules! The only drawback was the rain! We will need to return so we can enjoy the trails and lovely property!

Randy and Marilyn truly made this an exceptional experience. This was our very first stay at any B&B and we will definitely do it again. The cottage was so quaint and comfortable, the property nice and peaceful, our hosts the nicest possible. We will be back again soon!

Peaceful retreat

Marilyn and Randell were exceptional hosts. This place is a diamond in the rough. It is located deep in the woods off a very narrow road. Enchanting, quiet, and inviting. The cabins were spotless and had a fresh fragrance. When we arrived there were brownies awaiting us, and coffee and tea ready for brewing. We were there for Trade Days, but the Tarins pointed us in other directions as well for good dining and off the beaten path shopping. A most enjoyable stay.
