We had a blast!!

  • Submitted: Mar 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2012
For our wedding at Terrapin Creek Ldoge, we had all the following states represented - AL, GA, CA, MI, FL, AR, VA & TN. Everyone had a blast and felt completely at home. All three "B's" were present : BBQ, Bluegrass & Beer. We danced the night away, laughed until the sun rose. We couldn't imagine a more pristine location for our wedding and the family decided this week this will be our family reunion spot for years to come. Thank you so much for sharing the vision to create Terrapin Creek Haven.

Love
