Wonderful anniversary trip!

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 decided we wanted to come back before we got settled in! Very clean, very hospitable and great value!

Truly beyond all expectations.

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

Fabulous stay

Way better than advertised

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.
