This was our second time staying here and we still love this place. The staff is very friendly. We stay in the double bunk cabins and like it because we are able to have a stove top, microwave, and mini fridge along with a fireplace. It's really nice because the room is stocked with some cooking pans, utensils, plates, and...

For the last 3 years, April was the month we would bring our travel trailer up to the town of Christopher Creek. This year it happened to be Easter weekend and we wanted family to be up in the mountains with us. Since we didn't have room for everyone in our trailer, I reserved 2 tandem cabins at the Christopher...

My husband and I just recently stayed 3 nights for our one year wedding anniversary, and we had an amazing visit. Our cabin was great and it was so nice to sit on the back porch and listen to the sounds of the creek. It was truly peaceful and we dreaded having to leave. My husband and I plan to...

My husband and I stayed only one night in Pioneer Cabin #2. Our cabin was great, right along the creek. Nice little covered patio outback which was perfect for unwinding. It was just what we needed. Relaxing, healing and peaceful. We walked around the property , the owner's quirky sense of humor showed in the signs along your path along...

I am often up in rim country hiking and biking, and have stayed at various places up here. This place was definitely my favorite. We stayed in the motel rooms, which are their lower priced units. The room was clean, nice, and "felt" like a cabin. I think next time we will spend the extra and get a cabin right...

If you want a fancy hotel then this is not the place for you but......if you want a nice place in the pines with a fireplace, dishes & stove to cook with or just down the road from a restaurant - this is ABSOLUTELY awesome.
