Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family of 7 adults and 6 grandchildren enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving retreat. Some threw a line in the water for their very first time. Evenings were enjoyed by great conversation. Thank you so much for this place of quiet refreshment!

TERRAPIN CREEK... AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I am a youth minister, and we use Terrapin Creek Lodge for our High School retreat for our High School teens. First, the staff at Terrapin is incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and cooperative. Melissa, Mark, and Patsy are really nice and willing to help you with your event at the lodge. The facilities our incredibly nice. The cabins are nice with most having heat/air. The main lodge is beautiful. The scenery with the creek running along next to the facility makes a very tranquil and intimate setting. The fireplace area is super for hanging around a camp fire with friends. I would recommend Terrapin Creek for weddings, retreats, reunions, or a romantic getaway for your special someone!! This place is AWESOME!!

TERRAPIN CREEK LODGE

  • 5 of 5
WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO STAY! Having recently stayed a week at Terrapin Creek Lodge, I can HIGHLY recommend it. It is a WONDERFUL PLACE and GREAT VALUE. It is on a beautiful 5-acre property with magnificent views of the creek & mountains. The home is very well and lovingly done and high quality – with hand made furniture, art & accents. It has an extremely well equipped, large kitchen and a gorgeous huge dining room overlooking the creek. We watched canoers and wildlife sitting in the dining room and on the decks. We cooked hotdogs and s’mores on the fireplaces... It was a lot of fun to float Terrapin Creek – a real, secret treasure. We also took trips to Little River Canyon (just 30 minutes away) that was fun. We really enjoyed having old-fashioned fun – swinging on the swings over the creek, playing games at night.and spending quality time together. Terrapin Creek Lodge has to be one of THE best places to stay in Alabama or the South, hands down. What fun we had! We look forward to another stay at Terrapin Creek Lodge...

2010 SISTERS TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The Lodge was a perfect fit for our Annual Sister's Trip. There are five of us who plan a trip every year to a different location. This year we wanted to work on our memories, our genealogy records and pictures without a lot of distractions and without putting everything up while working on them. We had unbelievable amount of room to work and spread out. There was more than enough bedding, a fully furnished kitchen, flower pots everywhere, herbs growing, swings over the creek, two outdoor fireplaces, tables indoor and out, Internet connection, and great views. We enjoyed watching the canoe's and kayak's floating down the creek, many of the people called out to us. The Lodge more than exceeded our expectations. We loved it and can't say enough good things about it.

Thanks Patsy and Melissa, this was a vacation we will never forget.

HIGHLY RECOMEND

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this place for any type of social gathering.The fishing in Terrapin Creek & Weiss Lake is great, along with cycling the Chief Ladiga Trail and hiking in Little River Canyon & Pinhoti Recreation Area . The lodge itself is beautiful with the gorgeous decks, outdoor fireplaces, and the big dining room that overlooks the water.
