    Off the grid, stunning location, the cabin was amazing; gorgeous craftsmanship. The constant sound of the steam was very tranquil. Centrally located to Boone and other locations along the Blue ridge parkway. Would definitely recommend. Just know that there's no internet.

    This was the second time for us staying at Renee and Doug's property. And, we LOVE it. It is the perfect place to get away. We were thrilled to have a weekend with no internet. We have AT&T cell service and did not have service at the house - which we loved. But, we could get service nearby. The house is secluded. The covered deck is amazing and we good sit there all year. Nature's peaceful symphony of rushing water fill one's ears on the deck. The finishing touches in the house are wonderful. We so enjoyed the short hike down to the stream and then another short hike following the stream to waterfalls. Our two dogs had a blast. The property has one of the largest populations of native rhododendrons that I have ever encountered. We can't wait to see them in the Spring. We will be back. And, Renee and Doug are super friendly hosts who try so hard to make sure your trip is perfect.

    We had a wonderful time at the Cabin. The setting is a beautiful escape. The constant background noise of the stream in the woods setting was so relaxing. The details of the house inside and out are beautiful and must be seen. I would recommend a more powerful vehicle or 4x4 for the steep driveway. Thanks again.

    Even better than expected!

    I had never rented a house before. The process was incredibly easy and communicating with the host was even easier. Super responsive. We were excited as soon as we started driving into the woods. It was exactly what we wanted. Super laid back, but plenty of woods and a huge creek for the kids and dogs to play in. The pictures don’t do it enough justice. You need to see it for yourself.

    The cabin is beautiful; well kept and well decorated. We had everything we needed and then some. There is no phone, internet, or cable but it was not missed! Closest store is about 20 minutes away so be sure to bring what you need. The creek behind the house is wonderful, we enjoyed rock jumping and hiking that was easy enough for our 3 year to do! The owner was very responsive up to and upon arrival at the cabin. One suggestion-have back up print directions with you as you will get to a point where you will lose the ability to use your gps! I highly recommend this destination if you are looking for time to simply relax!

    The cabin was new, comfortable and spotless. The location is pretty remote, but that's what we wanted -- a chance to unplug and get outside. The back porch overlooking the stream is a highlight. We ate outside to the roar of the water every meal. I'd highly recommend as long as you don't want WiFi or phone service.

    The cabin and creek are absolutely beautiful. It was really wonderful for our family to disconnect from our electronic devices and reconnect with each other. The owners have thought of everything. We wanted for nothing. We have stayed in many cabins in North Carolina and this is by far one of the best. The fresh flowers throughout the cabin were an extra special touch that my wife and daughter really enjoyed.

    “Up the Creek” cabin in Deep Gap, NC has a lot to offer if you are looking for a true escape from the craziness of the world right now. It’s very privately located on a 6-acre tract without any hint of neighbors. Recently finished in 2020 it offers the comforts of home with an off the grid feel. It’s only minutes from Hwy 421, which will take you to Boone, Blowing Rock or West Jefferson within a matter of minutes. The driveway is super steep, but in low gear and without 4WD we managed! I was told that in the winter it may be impossible without 4WD. The cabin sits about halfway down the property between the gravel road above and a river down below. It has AC, but we needed it only about 50% of the time. Nice, functional living space with a massive deck on the back looking down to the river. The owners had fresh flowers waiting for us, which felt very welcoming. No internet or cable. There are some spots on the property where you can have cell phone coverage, but sparse. The property is heavily wooded with all of nature at your doorstep. We saw deer, turkey, rabbits, hawks, snakes, plenty of spiders and trout in the river. If you’re afraid of solitude or the dark, then this may be a little out of your comfort zone. I will say this however, it was a pleasure to come back to the cabin after a hike, drive or bike ride and just walk down to the river to hop in and cool down. No other’s around to ruin your privacy. If you aren’t in good shape this property may be a bit difficult to enjoy due to the steep gradient. The “easy” walking trail to the river or walking up the driveway to the road will easily tax even someone in shape. If you have difficulty walking, then you’ll be limited to the cabin and its deck. I was able to ride my road bike up the gravel driveway without standing up which was quite an accomplishment with gradients greater than 14%. If you’re into fitness try running from the river up to the gravel road on one of the trails. I ran 5 consecutively, which kicked my butt! Thanks Renee & Doug for an amazing stay!

    Our family had a wonderful time unwinding, relaxing, and disconnecting for 4 nights at Up The Creek. The property is very secluded and the only sound you hear is the rushing water of the creek below. The cabin was recently constructed and the owners have given it some custom personal touches that make your feel at home. The large covered deck is the best for enjoying meals and the fire bowl is perfect on a cool night. The creek is amazing and it was fun to explore all the little cascades up/downstream. If you're up for it, there is a nice size waterfall downstream that you can walk to as well (consider wearing water shoes). The water is cold which would be perfect on a hot day but we had some cooler temps for July, however, that didn't stop us from jumping in the water. To complement the creek, the lower deck along the creek edge is a serene setting for a afternoon drink/snack. The owners carved out a nice path to the creek that isn't too steep. Speaking of steep, the driveway is one of the steepest I've experienced. Going up requires some speed but our minivan handled it just fine. Lastly, I want to thank the owners for their hospitality (they live up the road). They were very helpful in answering questions and making us feel comfortable upon our arrival and departure. I know my family can't wait to visit here again!

    It was a beautiful cabin, with lots of attention to detail! I would say 4x4 or AWD was required, our CRVS Bailey made it up the gravel driveway. There was also no WIFI, including no phone service & almost a 30 minute trip to civilization...if we did not have a GARMIN, we wouldn’t have been able to find the place, as our phone connectivity died 30 min away. If there was an emergency you would be SOL. But I am from the suburbs and not used to the isolation. I would give this cabin an 8.5!

    The PERFECT place to get away.

    My wife and I (and our dogs) have stayed at many VRBOs over our 20 years of being married - we have rented on the northern California coast, on the outer banks of NC, in the mountains of Colorado, on the coast of Maine, and maybe a few others,. Up the Creek, is our all time favorite. This is one of rare cases where the property not only looks great on the VRBO listing but is even better in person. And, it was exactly what we needed this weekend. Owners Renee and Doug live just up the street and they are wonderful. The house is very new. Doug and Renee literally built and designed the house to be their home in the future And, it shows. You can feel the love that went in every aspect of the woodwork and interior design in the house to the hand rails along the steep trail down to the creek. The master bed is a king and very comfortable. The woods around the property are filled with wild rhododendrons- some were flowering now-- others had swollen buds. Everything about the property was perfect for our need to get away this weekend-and it is the perfect get away property. There is no internet, our phones did not have service at the property (but did just down the road) and we loved it. The covered deck is spectacular to hang out on in any weather. The rushing creek down below and the deck by the creek are fantastic. Our dogs had a great time hiking with us down the creek and all over the property. The cabin is isolated on about 15 acres of woods- no road noise, but a beautiful sound of the rushing creek.. No light pollution at all from other cabins or houses or street lamps. You won't know that anyone else exists. It was truly perfect for what we wanted and we hated to leave. We will be back. The cabin is cozy. So, you might feel crowded in the house if you have several adults and/or kids. The TV gets some stations via antennae and there is a DVD player- but there is not internet and we did not get a signal on our ATT phones. We LOVED that part. It is an easy 20 minute or so drive to Blowing Rock or Boone. We spent a couple hours exploring those areas. But, mostly we just wanted enjoy the peace, spirit, and beauty of the cabin. The topography of the cabins property is steep. The driveway is steep and curvy but we had no problem navigating it. The hike to the creek or up to the road is also steep giving out exercise in addition to beauty. This is truly a perfect upscale cabin to get way from it all.

    This is an amazing little cabin. It's very comfortable but really the best part is the outside. We used the fire pit every day and there is a lovely covered porch to eat or relax and I can't say enough about the CREEK! Our dogs just loved swimming and climbing around on the rocks and so did we! Don't miss the waterfall about 1/4 mile down. You will get wet but it's worth it! The hike up is steep but if you do it 3-4 times during the day you can go enjoy all the great food in Boone!

    We have used VRBO for many years now. Out of all our many trips, this was by far my favorite place we have stayed. It’s just beautiful! You can’t see another cabin and that’s important to us because of high stressed occupations , we need the feeling of being isolated but at the same time close to town. We will definitely return. The property owner, well she gets a 10 in our book. She wants to make sure your stay is everything you thought it to be. Wonderful experience.
