              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Mark is an architect who was raised in Alabama not far from the lodge. He respects and apprecaites the beauty of nature and tries to use natural and environmentally friendly materials whenver possible at the lodge.

              Why the Owner Chose Centre:
              We would like to share a little history of how Terrapin Creek Lodge came to be. In July 2005, during a family reunion in northern Alabama, the Bragg family first saw the house and 5 acres on Terrapin Creek we now call Terrapin Creek Lodge. Because we thought the property was unique and beautiful, we began pursuing its purchase as a vacation home for family reunions and holidays. Through various twists and turns, we were finally able to obtain it in September 2007. At the time of purchase, the house needed extensive work and the cabins (and bathhouse) needed completion. We lovingly renovated the property with quality and warmth as a place where we wanted to live. We used natural materials and handmade furnishings whenever possible. During construction, we were constantly told: “This would be a great place for a reunion, family vacation, church camp or wedding.” “This is a beautiful and peaceful place, will you rent it?” “This is such a warm and beautiful place – the handwork of God is everywhere.” It seemed that friends, neighbors and almost everyone we met asked to use it. During the renovation, we let family, friends, and our family’s church use it. The overwhelming, positive feedback has convinced us that it is a place to be shared. Consequently, it is being made available for individuals, groups, families, businesses, churches and others who we hope will appreciate and care for it as we do. Sincerely, The Bragg Family

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              The 5-acre property is surrounded on three sides by over 2,000 acres of uninhabited land so the views of the creek and mountains are natural and spectacular. There is alot of wildlife- deer,wild turkey, beautiful heron and other wildlife to watch. This is a great place for business retreats, church retreats, family vacations, family reunions, weddings, fishing trips to Weiss lake (we are 9 miles up the road), RTJ golf outtings, Chief Ladiga bike trail riding, Little River Canyon exploration (just 25 minutes away) and fun shopping with all the great flea markets and antique shops all around.
