Planned a trip to meet some friends to take our Jeeps to Turkey Bay for the weekend. We got a cottage for 10 for both our families. The cottage was very nice, plenty of room. Kids enjoyed the pool and air hockey table. I enjoyed having a grill to cook out on and a full kitchen to make breakfast in... More

My boyfriend and I planned a trip to Kentucky so we could ride UTVs at Turkey Bay. After discussing our preferences for a place to stay, we thought it would be nice for us to stay off site at a cottage/motel with its own television, shower and toilet. After doing some research we decided that Aurora's would be a nice... More

First of all, thank you for your compliment on our friendliness. It is our goal to make our guests feel welcome. We would like to address the issues you raised in your review: The first issue about the lack of upkeep around our area, is unfortunately not something that we can control. The nearby resort that has been demolished and... More

We are just returning from our stay at our great cabin here. My husband is a fisherman and has stayed at this facility multiple times, with other fishermen on trips. Being this was our family vacation of 5, for 4 nights and 5 days, I wasn't expecting much at all, but I was pleasantly surprised. No complaints here from this... More

Really didn't know what to expect but got to our cottage and wow this place is a diamond. Nice clean and quiet. Would recommend this place to all atv riders coming to turkey bay. Staff is friendly and very courteous . Cool playground for the kids.

I will start by saying that the owner's of the property are very nice and welcoming. When we booked this vacation we were told we would be staying in a older mobile home but it would be clean. Perfect, considering we had eight kids, we didn't need fancy or top of the line. It was older so that part was... More

My husband and I were pleased with this little spot. For the price, you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The cottage is definitely not top of the line, but worth what you pay for. The staff are awesome, and very accommodating. If you're looking for a place to get away for half the price of the other... More

We agree with all the comments that the owner and staff were very friendly. They were very accommodating to give us fresh linens, toilet paper, and garbage bags as needed. I'm struggling with what words to use to describe the condition of the resort and cottages, though. I want to give an honest review for any other families that are... More

Owners are very nice, but don't expect it to look like pictures. Needs a ton of work. Only means of heat was small space heater. Would hate to list everything that needs repairing. There are better places than this for price.

Hello - we're certainly sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at our place. It is indeed an older resort, but we certainly do not agree with your definition. You're right that the pictures are outdated and need replaced, because we have spent thousands of dollars replacing furniture, carpeting and such. The space heaters have been used here since the place... More
