Venue: True to its name, Pine Creek Country Inn is located in a country setting. The grounds are beautiful, wooded, and hilly with a small meandering creek.

Atmosphere: We lodged in a beautifully decorated, charming room in the Creek House complete with a refrigerator. A microwave was added at our inquiry at no additional charge.

Amenities: Lots to choose from and too many to list here. Two outdoor hot tubs (one of which is semi-private with a partition surrounding it) and an outdoor pool. The pool and large hot tub are open 24 hours.

Continental breakfast is offered weekdays in your room with a Country Breakfast offered on Saturday and Sunday in the Creekside Café. Both are complimentary. While there is wifi, it did not work well in our room. We didn’t eat at the Creekside Café but it is open for dinner Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and you can BYOB. A variety of outdoor games are available such as horseshoes, badminton and volleyball.

Recommendations: If you are not a cat person, do not stay here. Upon walking up to the lodge, there were at least 10 cats lounging near the front entryway.

Service: Verify your room charges upon check in. We had 2 reservations 1 week apart and they were mixed up. The second, longer stay, was charged for the first, shorter visit. A mistake for which they refunded the difference. However, the manager assisting the front desk attendant was short and terse with the attendant during the correction process. Do note, it is less expensive to book reservations online.

Return Rating: Never. While the grounds were beautiful and the room was comfortable, we won’t return. We cancelled the second reservation. The manger’s demeanor and too many lounging cats at the entry are inhospitable to us.
