Romantic rooms for the nature lover in you! Several of our rooms offer private hot tubs & an outdoor campfire area for relaxing under the stars. Enjoy handcrafted rustic furniture, nature trails around our wetland area with birdwatching. Our Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast is a short scenic drive from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Knoxville & The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Poised just 63 miles from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville on one side, & 19 miles from Gatlinburg & its neighbors on the other, Creekwalk Inn Bed & Breakfast & Cabin Rentals is a centrally located inn for your exploring both North Carolina & 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. Summer brings fun at our favorite swimming holes & Pigeon River whitewater rafting in Hartford. Plenty of Great Smoky National Parks hiking books & 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 & 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.

This place is a rustic delight!

My friend and I decided to get away for a few days, and I found this place via an internet search. It is so beautiful, and the breakfasts are amazing. I love the rustic structures and all the space. The horses are an added treat.

Fantastic Host !

Our Favorite B&B!!!

4.8 on April 22, 2018

This is by far our favorite B&B! Our first visit was such a delight that when we were planning another trip through that area, my husband explicitly asked me to schedule a stay here. It was WONDERFUL. Janice is a delightful person, the room was very comfortable, the spa tub was perfect for aching muscles after a long day of driving, and breakfast was fantastic! Janice is a very creative cook who really thinks outside the box when preparing meals for guests--even difficult ones like me (due to allergies). She's also a lot of fun to talk with, being someone with a wide range of interests! Every room is beautifully decorated with beautiful quilts and rustic touches. The kitchen was extremely clean and clearly loved. This is a place to which we plan to return over and over. Thank you, Janice!

Family rendez-vous

3.8 on August 10, 2016

Hosts were fantastic! Very helpful with excursions in the area (Midnight Hole, Foothills Parkway and overlooks, local family restaurant...) Each breakfast was varied, extraordinarily delicious, fresh, and healthy. Janice went out of her way to source in-season fruit and any of our requests. Horses roaming the farm were gorgeous and friendly as we're the hosts' dogs... well-behaved but you did have to watch your step through the grassy areas outside the cabins! Our cabin had ants in the kitchenette sink and counter and the cabin had cobwebs. Our hosts quickly attended to those problems. When we requested to add one extra day to our stay we were offered a different cabin which would be available all of the days we requested. We questioned whether this other cabin had connected rooms and were told that our rooms would be adjoining. We had expected that meant there would be a door allowing us to access each other's room. We were mistaken. Fortunately, it was not a big deal for our family as our children are adults but if our children had been younger that distinction would have made a big difference.

Truly Authentic Experience

4.6 on April 26, 2016

The Creekwalk Inn was a delightfully unique B&B experience. The owners, specifically Janice - make it magical, authentic and memorable. When you stay here, you feel like you're staying with family. The food is remarkable - absolutely delicious and served by someone who not only has a true understanding and respect for nature and the surrounding landscape... but also genuinely cares about her guests and does all that she can to ensure the best experience possible. Upon arrival, Janice greeted us at our cabin with delicious homemade cheesecake and a vase of local wildflowers. That cheesecake was like heaven - honestly the best I've ever had in my life, not exaggerating. She gave us the "inside scoop" on the best trails to hike and loaned us a book/guide on wildflowers. We had an absolute blast exploring the Smoky Mountains based on her recommendations. She would even pack us a lunch for our hikes and leave nutritious treats at our door in case she missed us before we headed out. On the last day we had to leave very early and weren't able to have a sit-down breakfast - but that didn't stop Janice from making us a wonderful breakfast to go and leaving it all in the Inn's kitchen fridge for us to get before we headed out - granola/yogurt parfaits with fresh fruit, delicious brie and crusty bread, fruit salad garnished with lovely little flowers, coffee/tea with to-go cups - plus a hand-written note thanking us for our visit. In the note she kindly asked if we could text her our picture so she could remember us. It was such a small but thoughtful gesture and we were very touched. On top of all of this, the cabin was spacious / clean and we LOVED the private hot tub time and fire pit! The grounds are beautiful and private and very close to the best trails in the Smokies. We can't wait to come back sometime soon - I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different and "off the beaten path."

Above and beyond

We were so excited to experience this place and all of it's charm. When we got close I called to check in with our arrival time. I explained that we had our dog with us and had read they had pet friendly accommodations. I had mis-read the information and pet friendly was only in the off-site cabins. They quickly re-routed us to one of their cabins off property and didn't charge any they should have. We loved this cozy little cabin. The view was spectacular. The hot tub was ready for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are planning a return trip.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night and we had an absolutely beautiful experience. From our cozy little room to the magnificent breakfast which was prepared by the talented Janice, our brief time spent on the farm was worth every cent. I highly recommend staying here for anyone interested in getting away from the day to day stress and enjoy some peace and quiet. The property sits along a creek surrounded by the Smoky Mountains in the Distance. You will be right on the doorstep to some of the best hiking on the East Coast. Janice graciously packed a lunch for me as i ventured out to spend a long day in the Mountains. I have traveled many places and rarely have i felt the love and hospitality as i did at the Creekwalk Inn. I don't understand the negative reviews on here. Your in the Mountains people!! Thanks Janice and Tifton, we will be back.

LOVE this place!

We had a family reunion at the Inn in October and took all 7 rooms. It was like our own cozy country home for the weekend. Janice and her family cooked a wonderful gourmet breakfast for all of us each morning and homemade pies one evening. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and I love all the extra touches from the antiques, quilts, to rocking chairs. Our family would gather in the main rooms to play games, read a book, or just listen to music and talk. My favorite was sitting on the back porch watching and listening to the creek. The horses were a wonderful surprise because you never knew where you would see them. Creekwalk Inn is delightful and charming.

HUGE expensive disappointment

1.2 on October 19, 2015

I am not sure how this Inn can be classified as a Diamond Collection Bed and Breakfast. The property is quite beautiful and there is potential for this place to be awesome. However, it was anything but awesome. The entrance is marked by a very small sign at the bottom of a gate post. Drove by it twice! Finally, got through the gate and drove up to the office. Pick up truck full of garbage bags parked in front of the office. Not one or two bags of garbage but overflowing with bagged garbage. Not a very welcoming site. At first glance our room looked fine. Closer inspection revealed that the sink and shower had not been cleaned since the last guests, someones leftover food was in the mini fridge. Pretty gross. A beautiful twig bed that was laced in cobwebs. Now I am not Mr. Clean but this was pretty icky. The tea and coffee and sugar looked like it had been there awhile, quite awhile. The coffee pot had old coffee in it with leftover grounds. Gross! We opted not to eat breakfast there the next morning as inspection of the kitchen in the main house mimicked our room. We spent the night and left early the next morning. I simply can not recommend this place. Especially for the price. We paid Ritz Carlton prices and I wish we had stayed at the Ritz! C. Campbell

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.
