Since childhood, I have always enjoyed vacationing in The Great Smoky Mountains. However, some of the popular areas I remember visiting in earlier
years have now become overcrowded, overpriced, and too commercialized to provide the relaxation and tranquility I seek on a mountain getaway. That is
why I was so excited about my discovery of Creekwalk Inn & Cabins in Cosby, TN located on the outskirts of Gatlinburg. Situated in a pastoral setting,
the log cabin B&B is located on Whisperwood Farm's 47 acres enhanced by 1,300 feet of creek frontage.
The distinctively decorated guestrooms, each named after a favorite site in the area, at Creekside Inn reflect unique artistry flavored with casual elegance.
Hand-crafted rustic furnishings provide the perfect touch for this delightful mountain retreat. Each room has a view of either the creek or the meadow.
I loved staying in the Hannah Mountain master suite (center photo above) with a king-sized rhododendrum bed, a double shower, and direct access
to the creekside porch. Ramsey Cascade (far left photo above) is another popular room with guests and features a queen-sized bed nestled in an alcove,
a Jacuzzi tub, and it also opens onto the creekside porch. There are seven guest rooms at the bed and breakfast (each with a private bath), and the entire
inn may be reserved for weddings or other special events. The property also offers fully-equipped cabins and lodges available for rental nearby.
as a wedding reception lodge capable of seating 150+ guests. Every detail for an idyllic wedding may be arranged by the wedding professionals associated with Whisperwood Farm's Creekwalk Inn.
I was fortunate in visiting Creekwalk Inn when the Hayne's daughter, Kelsey, was serving as the very capable in-house chef. I decided to have dinner at the inn (advance reservations required), and it was an excellent decision! The multiple course meal Kelsey prepared and served me was absolutely phenomenal as well as beautifully presented. I enjoyed an equally delicious breakfast, overlooking the creek, while there. At each meal I took delight in being served a dish I had never before experienced, and I was amazed with Kelsey's impressive culinary skills.
The owners/innkeepers of Whisperwood Farm's Creekwalk Inn, Janice and Tifton Haynes, are knowledgeable about the well-known attractions and things to do
in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas, and they are helpful in making suggestions for excursions that best fit their guests' interests and time frame. The Haynes have a knack for making guests feel welcomed and excited about visiting Creekwalk Inn even before their arrival. Even though the foliage is spectacular in this area in the fall, Creekwalk Inn offers something just as magnificent in every season of the year from meadows dotted with colorful wildflowers in the spring to verdant pastures in the summer. Creekwalk Inn is definitely a place I would love to revisit, and I highly recommend it to other B&B afficionados!
