Sunset at Max Patch Bald

We have a guest book at Turtle Mountain in Trust that where we encourage guests to leave their comments.
Maybe it’s a comment on the home itself, and things you experienced in the area during your stay.
Customer loyalty is important to us, and we want you to return!
Your comments can help us address anything that we might be able to improve on for future guests.
These are some, not all, of comments that we’ve received:



“Just to let you know we really enjoyed our stay at you beautiful home. It was everything we dreamed of and more. The amenities and the accommodations were amazing! You absolutely provide everything! Everyone was more than comfortable, plenty of room, we couldn’t have had a better stay anywhere else. …  Again, thank you so very much”.

“What a perfect place Turtle Mountain in Trust was for us. We, too, have a family cemetery on our property and so visited Susan’s with the appreciation and love we have for ours. Accompanying us on the trip was my cousin and her four children, who lost her husband / their father in a vehicular accident a couple years ago. It was their first family vacation and very healing. Please tell the owner how much we needed and enjoyed this little mountain retreat, that’s lovely in so many ways”.

Nicole, from South Carolina

Our three daughters had a blast creating memories around the fire and the late nights looking at the stars from the hot tub.  We have never traveled to the mountains before but we will definitely do it again, and this will be our first choice to stay.

We hosted a wedding & reception in June 2015…
here’s what the newly married couple had to say….
This week has been absolutely magical for us!  The house and amenities were perfect for spending a few days with our families here before the wedding.  The kids LOVED the big yard & the big, open room upstairs. The yard was perfect to set up the big tent for our wedding reception, as well as lots of space for yard games and dogs and kids to run. 
 Our dog had a very relaxing vacation here, too!
We want to thank you/Susan, Martha, and Ron for all of your help planning, prepping, and coordinating all this wedding stuff.  So glad we didn’t try to do it without  you!
Everything was just perfect.  
All of our guests exclaimed about the beautiful location and area.  
It was also super helpful to have the other rentals nearby for family to rent 
and to park cars at.
We could not have asked for anything more. Our wedding and reception were so great and we are so thankful to have these beautiful memories for a lifetime.  
We will definitely be back.”
Much love, and gratitude,
Mr. and (the new) Mrs. Cole
Simone (dog)

“Thank you Susan very much for hospitality.  We had a wonderful time there, enjoyed the lovely house in every corner. Either had morning breakfast or late dinner in the charming dining room or night songs sitting in the family room, or spending unforgettable times near fire pit.  They all were the best times we had during our friends vacation, very enjoyable and lovely.  Thank you, thank you.  With respect for the owners of this home….”
