We stayed in the Lower Creek House for two nights. It was very clean, and had a queen bed & two twin beds. The private bath was outside of the room, just a few steps across the hallway. It was nice that it wasn't part of the room. When we arrived, the room smelled of smoke from the fireplace, and when we left, all of my clothes smelled like a campfire. We did not attempt to make a fire while there.
I knew from the website and from the hotel staff that the walls are quite thin, and they're right! We were prepared with earplugs, but didn't need them. My cousin and his family were above us in the Upper Creek House room, and were very considerate of us & the noise. We did hear each time they walked on the floor, used the bathroom, etc., but it wasn't terrible.
The odd thing about these structures is that there's no way to lock the rooms from the outside, and there's a tiny little latch to lock them from the inside. It would be nice to have a real lock on the door that works from both outside and inside.
That said, it is a wonderful place in a beautiful setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Deetjen's.
