Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Tifton - Cottage by the Pool

1400 square foot cottage with 1 queen bedroom, full bath, walkin closet

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.

About Garlan or Pat Booth

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

Why Garlan or Pat Booth chose South Rivers Area

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Very quiet, peaceful, relaxing, safe, and near all areas for shopping, medical facilities, churches, and schools.

Paradise in Georgia

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very clean and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

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.

The best in charm and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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
