Mountain Creek B&B is a 3400 sq. ft. custom red cypress log home carved into the side of the South Mountains set on 5 1/2 acres that has three walking trails & a creek with a spacious deck for relaxing to the sound of the cascading water. The 65 ft. front deck provides beautiful views. Upon entering the property, crossing the bridge & driving up, you will see the cabin nestled in the mountain. As you enter Mountain Creek, you will be greeted by a grand log staircase, two floor-to-ceiling cypress trees and a 25 foot stone fireplace in the Great Room. Private Swedish Massages are available by appointment with our licensed Massage Therapist, Deborah Trivett. Our two king suites are on the 2nd floor on opposite sides of the cabin which gives our guests a real sense of privacy. The loft area in between the suites has a coffee station with all the amenities and has a basket of brochures of places to go and things to do as well as magazines to browse through. We serve breakfast at 8:30 AM & includes one of the following French toast, Belgium waffles, spinach quiche, or a hearty Frittata. For those guests that prefer a lighter morning meal, homemade muffins and oatmeal are always available! We also offer an "EXCLUSIVE STAY" package that will guarantee you will be the only guests during your stay with us. Please call us for details. Morganton offers many restaurants, parks, shops and local breweries. Ashville, Charlotte, Hickory and Boone are all within an hours drive.

An Experience we will always remember

A very memorable experience on our wedding night! We were treated like a King and Queen! The rose petals on the bed were such a lovely surprise. We enjoyed lovely conversation and a delicious breakfast with Nancy and Peter. Can't wait to come back! George and Sally

Genuine Warmth & Gracious hospitality

5 on November 02, 2017

Nestled in the side of its very own mountain, Mountain Creek Bed and Breakfast is a hidden gem waiting to welcome all who ascend its lovely, winding driveway. Proprietors Nancy and Peter Kampf are its hosts, extraordinaire, eager to fulfill their guests' requests with genuine warmth and gracious hospitality. When they discovered our son was running the Peak-to-Creek Marathon nearby, Peter printed us a colored map for navigation. And to welcome him back from the race, Nancy had a warm home baked cherry pie. Imagine! Mountain Creek's accommodations are truly impeccable; its breakfasts absolutely divine. This exquisite cabin chalet envelopes its visitors in grace and beauty, beckoning them to return again soon! We can't wait! Carol & Mike - Hutson House, SC

Beautiful mountain retreat

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending several nights at mountain creek bed and breakfast while planning to build our new home in the area. What a beautiful peaceful retreat! Our room was large and immaculate. Peter and Nancy were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfasts were delicious. We will be back!

Beautiful B&B with wonderful owners, we couldn't have been more pleased. Our room was perfect for us. Private bath, private TV, easy chairs with reading lights, and a king sized bedroom. Oh, and breakfast was fit for a king. Loved it. Dean and Gerry

We absolutely loved our first experience with a B&B! Nancy & Peter were exceptionally kind and gracious hosts. The room was cozy and had everything you would need! I can honestly say the breakfast was the best I have ever had. I would recommend Mountain Creek Cabin to anyone wanting a unique and fun experience! Thank you!

Awesome home and Hospitality !!!!

My husband and I stayed at Mountain Creek B & B two nights for our 59th anniversary. Peter and Nancy are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful log home. Our room was large and very comfortable, as was the bathroom also. Nancy prepares a yummy breakfast and provides muffins for a snack while your sight-seeing.and will even share her recipe. One night they even shared dessert with us. We came as guests and left as friends ! Sincerely, John and Karen Chase

Wow! What a beautiful log home! We enjoyed our 2 night stay in this home with a huge bedroom and large bathroom. Our hosts, Peter and Nancy, are two of the friendliest people we have ever experienced in a Bed and Breakfast and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay. The breakfasts were wonderful and so were the snacks! It was also very thoughtful of them to provide a bottle of sparkling cider and card for our Anniversary stay! John and Karen

Weekend getaway at the Mountain Creek B & B

5 on July 24, 2017

Where to begin? When we first arrived, I adored the welcome sign. Its the little things for me. Then once entering the cabin, we were warmly welcomed by Nancy and Peter. The hospitality that these people gave was outstanding. We were the only guests for that weekend which to me, made it so much more special. What an easy sweet lady Nancy was. She certainly gave off that loving mother vibe. For being a new mother myself, she was just what I needed for leaving our little one with family in Charlotte. And her cooking & baking... I seriously drooled when I had her food. Peter isn't in the picture as much but its the perfect amount. They sit down with us during breakfast and have nice easy conversations. I cant rave enough about my experience here and want to go back in the worst way. What wonderful friends we made by choosing to stay at the Mountain Creek B & B.

About the innkeepers

We are from Long Island, NY. While we enjoyed raising our three children and spending as much time as we could on the south shore in our boat, we wanted to retire in western North Carolina & live in a log cabin in the mountains. In 2010 we moved to Morganton NC and now we have the opportunity to share our log home with you! We love to meet new people and hear of their stories too! Please call us if you have any questions about making your reservation!

I love to bake and have some wonderful recipes for homemade muffins which include, apple, blueberry, pumpkin, banana/walnut and raspberry. Of course they would not be complete without a homemade strussel topping! If you have a favorite, please mention it when you make your reservation!
