My husband and I spent our 10-year anniversary at Terrapin Peak, and we had a wonderful experience! Genny and Chef ‘What’s His Name’ are two wonderful hosts, and made sure we were welcome, comfortable, and satisfied with our stay. The cinnamon rolls were delicious, and the relaxed atmosphere is just what we needed! We will definitely be back and will bring our kids when they are older. Terrapin Peak is a real treasure!
We had the most wonderful time here! Genny was outstanding she went above and beyond for us! Even letting us go into a personal room to watch a show that my boyfriend and I really wanted to see! The room was beautiful and very clean! It was an amazing get away! And Chef Whats His Name was an outstanding chef! His breakfast burritos were out of this world! And he is pretty dang good at pool! :) The big thing was when the tornados hit Moore and they knew we lived there and I got a special email from them making sure we were ok! Thank you so much for the hospitality!! We will be back!! Summer
We discovered this gem in July when scrambling for lodging for a last-minute trip to the Lake Tenkiller area, and just went back for a long weekend with friends. Perhaps the best way to describe our experiences is to say that we are already looking at our calendars to figure out the next time we can go back. Genny and Gregg are two of the most welcoming and hospitable personalities we have the pleasure of knowing, and they pour their hearts into surpassing their guests expectations. From the elegantly homey cabin rooms (stunning photographic lake murals, handsome woodwork and fixtures, comfortable beds, and plush robes for guests' use) to the porches and decks that just beg you to sit down and enjoy your surroundings, to the well-appointed main house, complete with theater space and pool table, you could not ask for better lodging. But Terrapin Peak is so much more than a place to stay. Genny and Gregg will make you feel at home from the moment you pull into the drive, and the countless details they attend to throughout your stay is astonishing. This time we were lucky enough to enjoy two dinners made by Gregg, as well as a breakfast, and they were every bit as delicious as some of the best restaurants we've been to in our travels. We even got to enjoy the leftovers from our steak dinner when we returned home tonight (and I am carefully rationing the best mashed potatoes I have ever had). And their delightful company truly enhances the fabulous meals. I can think of no better way to enhance a visit to the area, no matter your primary reason for visiting, than to spend a few days at Terrapin Peak. Genny and Gregg will make your visit whatever you want it to be. We look forward to many more visits when we want to escape from the real world. Liz S., Wichita, Kansas
My wife and I stayed here while researching the Tenkiller Lake area. Genny and Chef What's his name will make you feel at home, no worries. We intended to stay two nights but after the first booked another night. We had the pleasure of their company for three nights and had the Chef make us a special dinner one night and a special breakfast. Over the top food and service. Book this trip now. Great place and great hosts. We will stay here again.
Can't say thank you enough to miss Genny and chef what's his name . From the simplest of details to the most serene and cleanest place by far I have ever stayed . No detail to big or small . Miss Genny helped me in planing the details of diet needs to surprise anniversary cake! Not only was chef what's his name an amazing cook but gave great advice on boat rental to great spots to fish. To packaging our abundant left overs and Miss Genny's fresh baked cinnamon rolls . They truly thought of all the details for me to enjoy our stay . We were very well taken care of. Wondering whom we would bring with us next time .Perfect for two or a group of ten .
The bed was the most comfortable of any I've ever slept in. Jenny and Chef what's his name (Greg) made us feel right at home. Food was beyond good. I would recommend this B&B to everyone. Can't wait to go back myself.
It is a definite YES that we will stay here again. We were greeted by Genny and Chef What’s His Name, shown around the common areas and then shown to our room. Wow, the room was so clean; you could eat off the floor! The large room had very comfortable beds (we had two queens), a nice bathroom, and an eating area. The two covered decks were also immaculately clean and very peaceful. There was wild life all around. Breakfast was so yummy… LOVED the cinnamon rolls! Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel like we were family. Stop looking for a place to stay when at Lake Tenkiller because Terrapin Bed, Breakfast and Beyond is (in our opinion) the only place to stay!
We spent a beautiful Spring weekend at the Terrapin Peak and Lake Tenkiller. Great common house with theatre room and tons of movies and even vinyl records! Wonderful dining area, and we even got a tour of a spotless commercial kitchen! Cabins are very nice, and everything is extremely clean. The whirlpool tub is in the bathroom, not out in the main area, and the rooms aren't fancy over decorated types, but very well constructed, clean and functional with lots of nice touches. (Fridge, microwave, bistro table, walk-in closet). Hosts are very personable and work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The hot breakfast option (extra) is worth the money! We forgot to call 2 weeks in advance to make dinner reservations but bet it would be great. I meant to ask if we could bring our own groceries and have the Chef cook... that might be a fun option, too!
My fiancee and I decided to meet at Terrapin Peak Bed, Breakfast, and Beyond for a weekend - and it was a fantastic experience that went beyond our expectations! We were warmly greeted by the Greg and Genny, the innkeepers, and given a tour of the facilities (to include the spotless kitchen). Then we were escorted down to our cabin. Greg and Genny definitely know how to pay attention to detail - for example, they provide paper plates and plastic silverware in each guestroom to use to heat up leftovers, etc. (which came in handy). The amount of work that Greg and Genny have put into constructing and maintaining their B&B is absolutely amazing - it's definitely worth a visit!
From making reservations through the time we left, the experience at Terrapin Peak Bed, Breakfast & Beyond was excellent. The room was perfect...beyond clean and beyond comfortable. The food was absolutely awesome thanks to Chef What's His Name. The food was way better than what we could at nearby restaurants. Hospitality? Beyond expectations and noticeable better than other places. We were taken care of exceptionally well. This is genuinely a great place for a getaway. We will visit again? Absolutely. I don't give positive reviewseasily and it's nearly impossible to exceed my expectations during a stay anywhere but Genny and Chef What's His Name did exactly that. 5 stars all around!
What a great place for my 3 long time friends and myself to meet up for a little getaway. We met in Tahlequah for lunch, visited a flea market, then on to the B&B. We were warmly welcomed by the innkeepers, given a tour of the facilities and then shown to our rooms in Cabin 2. The whole place was absolutely spotless with no detail overlooked to make a great stay. Out of this world breakfast the next morning. We took a nature walk, watched a movie in the media room and had a marshamallow roast over a campfire the night before. Can't wait to go back and maybe I'll let my husband go with me.
We hardly know where to begin! My wife is of Cherokee descent so we decided to spend a few days touring the Tahlequah, Oklahoma area. Checking with the Better Business Bureau in her search for lodging, she found Terrapin Peak BBB which has an excellent record. We were not prepared for the warm and sincere hospitality of Genny & Chef "What's His Name" and the cabins that were so clean and comfortable. The property is beautiful and a great place to watch the abundant wildlife from the comfort of a covered porch. Every aspect of our stay at Terrapin Peak Bed Breakfast and Beyond was over and above our expectations. Terrapin Peak is truly the place you didn't think existed anymore...anywhere!

Owners, Greg & Genny have the most peaceful, private class act of a bed & breakfast with excellent food, extreme cleanliness, fantastic fellowship. They aim to please, and they do it very well!
This is truly a unique place to visit. The service is beyond outstanding. Absolutely two of the nicest people you will ever meet. You will not believe how clean everything is there. From the professional grade kitchen to the full covered porch, you will simply not find a spec of dirt. (NOT exaggerating) My wife and I only got to stay one night so we didn't get the pleasure of trying "Chef Whats His Name's" cooking. But we are in the process of arranging for our next visit, which will include a steak dinner. (I gave the dining a five star rating because I just cannot see how it could be any less.) I am very excited to return. If you are thinking of trying Terrapin Peak B&B I will full heartedly recommend it to anyone that would consider giving it a chance. ;-) J&K
This B&B is absolutely amazing. Food is great. Cleanest cabin I've ever stayed in. Bug-free and cold A/C. Would recommend to anyone. Will be going back, and hopefully really soon. Nicest people running the place.
From the moment I booked our weekend getaway our service began! Genny was amazing and went above my expectations. Once there, everything was spectacular! Our room, the food, the friendship was more than you could expect! We will be going back!
