Want to know a bit about your hosts? Not sure about all of the amenities we have at the bed and breakfast? Looking for area activities while you're visiting? Keep on reading for all the information to make your stay at Creekside Paradise Bed and Breakfast the most enjoyable.


Hi!  Our names are Cynthia and Jeff. We love to hike, ride our motorcycles, and enjoy nature.  We came down here on a motorcycle vacation one year and absolutely fell in love with this area.  We find the mountains, creeks, waterfalls and wildflowers to be truly inspirational.  So it’s no surprise that a few years later we decided to retire here permanently.  During our house-hunt, we were taken by the beauty of this home and property and knew that this is where we would settle.  This idyllic setting, so close to the Appalachian Trail, scenic drives and spectacular waterfalls is our idea of Paradise.  And we can’t wait to share it with you and your family.

Creekside Paradise Bed and Breakfast is a log and stone lodge nestled in the Nantahala National Forest.  Our 20 acre property boasts a babbling brook right outside the front door, numerous waterfalls, and picturesque hiking trails.  Quiet and peaceful, this is the perfect escape from city life and hectic work schedules.  So leave your worries behind and come relax with us for your anniversary, birthday or romantic getaway.

Fontana Lake: Bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and known for trophy fishing, Fontana Lake is the perfect spot for a flat water adventure. Paddle, fish, boat, swim, hike, and even explore the massive hydroelectric dam famously known for being the largest east of the Mississippi!

The Appalachian Trail: Just minutes from the Bed and Breakfast, this world renowned trail extends from Georgia to Maine and practically runs through our backyard. Explore the Smoky Mountain section north of us or head southward to the Georgia point of origination. We offer package drop and shuttle services for our AT through hiker guests.

Cheoah River: Known for its class IV and V rapids, the Cheoah River is a natural marvel and home to some of the most challenging whitewater kayaking in the southeast. Featuring a limited release schedule of approximately 10 high flow events each year, this is an activity you wont want to miss. And yes, it's an awesome spectator sport for those who are not familiar with advanced whitewater paddling. Click here for the full schedule!

Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest: Named for the famous poet and veteran Joyce Kilmer, the memorial forest is home to some of the largest old growth trees in the southeast. Boasting two beautiful trails for hiking and a lovely picnic area along the stream for relaxing this spot is a must on your next trip to the area. Additionally, this is a wonderful place to view the synchronous fireflies each summer. For more information on this spectacular event, just ask.

The Cherohala Skyway: Known as the mile-high road in the sky, the Cherohala Skyway is home to some of the most beautiful views in the country. With an array of hiking trails and picnic spots along the way, the skyway is certainly worth a full day of adventure. And be sure to check out the Annual Native Flame Azalea Festival located at Hooper Bald just off the skyway.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park: Known as the #1 Most Visited National Park in the USA, we take great pride in having it right in our back yard. Best of all, we are on the quiet side of the park. Explore the "secret" entrance at Fontana Dam or the Twenty Mile Ranger station for a chance to explore the impressive trail systems, flora, and fauna without all the chaos of the Gatlinburg side of the smokies.

Stecoah Valley Center: The cultural hub of the region and home to the award winning Appalachian Evening concert series, Stecoah Valley Center is a real treat. Check out their artisan gallery for the perfect souvenir, plan ahead to attend a local festival, or purchase tickets to one of their concerts.

Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC): Hike, Paddle, Zipline, Grab a Beer, and Shop all at this award-winning riverside, adventure hub just a short drive away from our B&B. An awesome spot to start your trip adventures and gear up if you're in need of outdoor supplies. Be sure to check out their restaurants and plan for a minimum of one full day enjoying their amenities.

Smoky Mountain Railroad: Just a short drive away, the Smoky Mountain Railroad is a great spot to see the Smokies while relaxing in an open-air or traditional train car. Tons of fun for the family all year long and you can even hop aboard their annual Polar Express for a fun holiday celebration.
