What Our Patrons Think
Excellent place! Will definitely use this host 10 out of 10 times. Michelle and her family were very welcoming and friendly. Also, this family works hard to be very accommodating and helpful. Very unique property with tons of history! Thank you again Michelle!
Great experience. Loved the story of the history of Laura Pope and how they are bringing her to life again. Beautiful land and artwork! Will visit again as the story unfolds.
This home exceeded our expectations! Michelle and Dan are amazing hosts and felt like old friends. The home is quite interesting with a deep history. Super clean, lot of room with a very comfortable bed. The owners’ passion for preserving its history is very apparent. Very very beautiful grounds. We will be back!
Michelle went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. As a more traditional BnB it was nice having breakfast available both mornings. We appreciated the history and passion Michelle has to preserve this site. If ever in need of a place to stay in South GA this is the place. Thank you!
