My husband I stayed in June 2014 what an awesome relaxing time. Quiet, peaceful, secluded and just what we needed. The owners are such sweet people and made sure we had everything we needed. Very Clean!!!!!

We had the opportunity to stay in 2 different cabins due to our late reservation which worked out perfectly. The Rustic cottage is superb and is located where no one else is so if you're looking for complete seclusion then it is it.

Our trip to Barren Creek Cottages was "off the hook" ..the fishing and peaceful quiet alone time was spot on ... can't say enough about the area, rivers, owners and wildlife ...trust me for the price it's better than any stress releasing therapy on the market.

These cabins are fabulous. We are planning our return trip this summer! Off the beaten path but cabins have every thing u need. We stayed for a week and can't wait to go back. Fishing, tourist attractions just a short drive away, cabins are very well equipped, spacious.

Now, our annual visit to Barren Creek Cottages is a tradition. We...

Me and my wife Jennifer decided we were going on vacation in this area but had no idea where to stay. It was during hunting season so finding a cabin was very hard to do. I browsed the internet and found barren creek cottages. When I saw their website, I didn't think much of the site but I figured for...
