Overview

Rising from the ashes of an abandoned boy scout camp & nestled in the hills of Monroe County welcome to your personal paradise! Known as the Creek Haus, this wooded one-of-a-kind will draw you in & make you want to stay! From the decorative art sculptures scattered throughout the bluffside, to the sounds of Fountain Creek babbling this local gem is unique in nature & whimsical in character. Come enjoy your weekends or (live your whole life) exploring the extensive walking trails, mediation spots, gardens, & fishing & swimming holes. This retreat was built into the bluff showcasing extensive decking (screened & unscreened) & a lodge-like great room with panoramic views! Modeled around the fireplace (which is original to the boy scout camp), be sure to look for the emblem engraved in the stone! Master Suite features stone walls & ambitious use of a piano! Basement features storage & efficiency apartment. Not enough words are allowed to describe this opportunity to own history!
