“The views from the ridge on trail III were breathtaking! And it has been too long since we’ve seen such a beautiful night sky. We hope to return soon.”

Creekside’s two hundred acres offer a multitude of beautiful spaces for you to enjoy. Relax with a quiet walk beside the creek, sit by the fish pond, or hike into the hills. At the Farmhouse Inn there are decks and porches where you can read, gardens to walk through and sit in, and the swimming pool and cottage hot tubs awaiting your refreshment. Whatever your mood, there is a beautiful place waiting for you at Creekside.
“The magic of this place and our experience here is impossible to put into words. To leave is to have my heart ache.”
D & B, Ontario, California
A stroll along the Indian Creek trail is a peaceful experience and an opportunity to see kingfishers, blue herons and minks along its banks. Sit and soak in the quiet under an arching sycamore. You might be surprised at what you see.
Our trails wind through wooded hills and open meadows where you can experience the delicate beauty of an Appalachian spring, the lush green of summer or the glorious colors of autumn.
Best of any song
Is bird song
In the quiet, but first
You must have the quiet.
Wendell Berry excerpt from A Timbered Choir
Sit by the pond and listen to the frogs while you wait for the blue heron to come and fish. You may also fish, as long as you return them to the pond after catching them.
Our flower and vegetable gardens are here for your pleasure---for a stroll in the early misty morning to the music of birdsong or in the evening as the fireflies rise from the grass or to enjoy as a place to sit in the warm afternoon sun.
Slowly, slowly, they return
To the small woodland let alone:
Great trees, outspreading and upright,
Apostles of the living light.
Patient as stars, they build in air
Tier after tier a timbered choir,
Stout beams upholding weightless grace
Of song, a blessing on this place
The common areas of the Farmhouse Inn are open to all Creekside guests. Wireless internet access is available in the Farmhouse and surrounding porches and decks, as well as at the Mountain Lodge. Books and quiet corners await your pleasure.
