10 1/2 beautifully landscaped acres suitable for walking, bird watching, or whatever your pleasure might be. Enjoy relaxing by the pool, or strolling down to the pond for a little fishing. We are short distances away from several tourist attractions, or you may just want to relax and enjoy the surroundings. This is your own 'home away from home'. Enjoy the porch with comfortable seating overlooking the pool. There is a gas grill for your enjoyment, along with ceiling fans to keep you cool. There is also a 1/2 bath outside stocked with beach towels for your use. If it is too cool for swimming, you may enjoy the chiminea by the pool, while star gazing on a clear night. Step inside to your large open living area that includes a new 42'' tv with cable, vcr, and dvd. There are many movies, books, and magazines for your enjoyment. This open area also includes your modern kitchen with all modern appliances(side by side refrigerator, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, icemaker, keurig coffee maker with specialty coffees and teas, and regular coffee pot). Small desk area for your work station. Island with seating for four. You may enjoy limited fishing from our well stocked pond, or watch while the fish are being fed. You may also enjoy feeding the ducks or geese. Relax in the Adirondack chairs, while reading a book or just enjoy the sunset...very relaxing! You may see deer walking over the property, and many birds. You may even hear a whippoorwill or owls at dusk. There are also picnic tables and umbrellas around the pool and pond area if you should like to picnic.
We are both retired. We enjoy our home and property. We had our home built in the early 1990's, and moved in the spring of 1993. We both love working in our yard. We have four children and seven grandchildren that we love to spend time with. We enjoy meeting new people.
Garlan or Pat Booth purchased this cottage in 1981
We located this property while living in downtown Tifton, and wanted to get out of town and have some space. The building site was perfect, and we have had the opportunity to develop it the way we wanted it to look. It keeps us busy doing what we enjoy doing.
Very quiet, peaceful, relaxing, safe, and near all areas for shopping, medical facilities, churches, and schools.
My wife and I spent a night here on the way home from our North Carolina vacation. We chose this over a standard issue hotel room, and are glad we did.
Our accommodations were great. You’re essentially renting a building beside their pool that is, for all intents and purposes, a small house (plenty big, just smaller than a standard size house). The bed was comfortable, the place was very clean and nicely decorated. We had everything we needed and some. Everything was in excellent condition. My wife enjoyed the kitchen. There was a bird bath outside where there were a great many, colorful birds stopping by to take a drink or a dip. It was relaxing and fun watching the show.
The grounds are scenic and well-kept. The walk around the pond was relaxing. There were numerous fruit trees of various kinds. The owners were friendly and accommodating. They live right next door, although we never felt any lack of privacy. The reservation process and billing were handled very professionally.
Overall, we highly recommend this place. It’s a great alternative to a hotel room, and it’s very convenient to the highway (but far enough away that it’s peaceful and quiet, no one slamming doors or talking loudly as they walk by your room door at 2AM). We vacation in the Carolina mountains every now and again, and will keep this place in mind as a good overnight stop for those trips.
Our stay at Pat and Garlan's amazing estate property was nothing short of paradise. The guest cottage at poolside was spotless and beautifully decorated with every amenity one could want. The property was easy to access from the interstate, yet completely quiet and private. We took a swim, but our highlight was fishing from the fully stocked private pond on the property. At our request, Garlan provided poles, worms, and some helpful tips. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling through Georgia, or who might want a delightful private getaway with southern hospitality.
My family stayed for a week . The house is very clean and stocked. We had plenty of room for family of four. The sorroundings is very peaceful and beautiful. There is plenty of things to do! My family went on a picnic, hike, swimming , fishing and visited downtown areas for shopping. The owners are very nice and hospitable . My family will never forget our wonderful vacation and the owners of this beautiful property.
We were in town for a softball tournament. Our team stayed in a hotel but we stayed in a home. The grounds are beautiful. The owners of the home are very nice. We didn't see them until we were packing up to leave. I wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the pool and lake. Great proximity to the hwy. We would certainly stay here again.
This review is a long time coming and has been weighing on my mind to make sure I came through and told of our awesome experience. My wife and I stayed 2 nights of our honeymoon here and it was perfect. The grounds are kept very clean and manicured, sitting by the pond is as peaceful as it gets, the living quarters is like being at home, its sincerely one of the fondest places we have stayed, ever. Last but not least, Scooter and his wife are some of the nicest people we have met in a long long time. They welcomed us onto their property and were just so nice to talk with. If anyone is thinking of passing through the area and needs a place to stay, please don't hesitate to reserve your night, we just cant say enough good things about our experience.
sincerely, David & Tracy Lloyd
We had a wonderful time. Pat and Garlan are fa ulous hosts. Garland
helped my grandson. catch his first fish in their stocked pond. Wonderful memories were made.
