We stayed here in August 2006 - and we couldn't find the creek. There's a teensy-tiny creek, but nothing like the photos on the website: ----
Hmmm - we had visions of putting our feet in the creek after a long day of hiking, but no such luck.
The cabin (#11) we stayed in was: 1) very small; 2) smelly, due to the mop left in a bucket in the living room; 3) lacking amenities such as coffee filters, soap,and salt & pepper. I can see not having coffee ... but what's the point of providng a cofee maker if you don't provide coffee filters? And every cabin that we've satyed in has at least had salt and pepper in it.
We were aware that the "Resort" doesn't take credit cards, but as we returned the the key to our cabin, we noticed that another guest's credit card info was being taken. We would much rather have paid by credit card, like the other guest - guess we didn't qualify for the ability to pay via credit card.
When we checked in, we were tersely informed that the dining area (which is about 15 feet by 25 feet) "stops serving meals at 7:30." That's hardly inviting! And when we inquired about their dog (there were signs everywhere that said "Please do not feed our dog ... he's allergic to lots of food!"), we were told not to feed him anything - as if we couldn't read the signs. Strangely enough, we didn't see this dog at all during our stay.
And the website doesn't say exactly say this - but this area is REMOTE. Mineral (population 90) has one tiny store, which doesn't carry anything decent - so bring your own food! There's one restaurant in the motel, but we didn't try it, as it didn't look appetizing.
We would not return to stay at this place. No creek, a miniscule and musty cabin, and a definite lack of friendliness are more than enough reasons to never go back.
