For the second year in a row, Nathan and co. knocked it out of the park. We had an amazing time at the Quiet Creek Inn. The cold winter wonderland outside was perfect for staying in the warm cozy cabin. We cannot wait to return. Thanks again!

The cabin and views are gorgeous! The cabins are positioned along the creek and the sound of the water was so relaxing. The staff is so friendly and the cabins are very clean! We loved the brown bag with peanuts for the squirrels! Our kids had a great time watching the squirrels come to our deck. We strongly recommend the...

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to the Quiet Creek Inn and we're already talking about returning again next year. We absolutely love coming here. The king suite cabins are very comfortable and have everything you need if you decide to stay in for the weekend. I was pleasantly surprised to see the kitchenette was well-stocked...

Welcome back home! On behalf of the QCI staff, we're delighted to hear you not only approve but were pleased with our upgrades and continued enhancements. Yes! we did upgrade the kitchenette flatware, plate-ware, and such so we could stock each room very well. While not as colorful as the last set (we went with white china for a clean...

We had a lovely two-day anniversary stay at the Quiet Creek Inn. The owners kindly gifted us a lovely bottle of wine upon our arrival and also upgraded our accommodations. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. There are comfortable chairs near the edge of the stream running behind the cabins. We will most definitely return.

Glad to hear you will not only return, but that you had a lovely stay... we always try extra hard to make sure our guests that are celebrating a special event get a little treat and, as with all our frequent guests, try to upgrade if possible wen we're not sold out. Happy Anniversary!

A lovely experience from soup to nuts. Exquisite attention to detail. We had to leave much too quickly. The landscaping is gorgeous, lots of storage in the cabins, maybe bring hangers. Just be sure to get any of your local sightseeing questions answered between 9 - 5 pm as the front desk is not staffed outside of these hours. Kudos...

Relaxing but read cancellation policy carefully I booked on booking.com and got caught in an 8 day out cancellation policy. The hotel is not pet friendly the hotel has certain pet friendly rooms and if you book the wrong room it's costly to change. The hotel is nice and relaxing and one of the nicest in the tiny town.

Marc K, General Manager at Quiet Creek Inn, responded to this review

Dear RockinLAWoman, My staff and I are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay; You're correct: like many smaller hotels and inns worldwide, our policies differ from standard big chain hotels which normally allow you to cancel up the night before. Your words of wisdom to other travelers to carefully read policies and rate terms is good advice when buying...

Dear BBlumfield, Please accept our apologies for your experience making a reservation for a possible stay at our inn. We don't have "customer service reps" like big hotels... just Nathan, Christina, Heather, and me.
