About Ginger Criswell
I am the mother of two girls and have owned this property for many years as a regular rental property. In 2016, I renovated the cottage and made it available to travelers from around the world. The cottage is fully furnished with a washer, dryer, and ready to use kitchen. There is also a fenced yard for pets and children, a gazebo porch with rocking chairs for relaxing and enjoying the woods, and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs, or baking potatoes.
Why Ginger Criswell chose Locust Grove
The Country Cottage is close to state parks, arts and culture, and has great views of the surrounding woods. The home is just 25 miles south of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and 30 miles south of Atlanta. The cottage is close to lots of fun activities and is also a great, quiet place to relax and unwind. It is an ideal place for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with children), and furry friends. (There is a fenced yard for dogs.)
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is located on a private, wooded lot at the end of a long gravel drive. Occasionally deer and other wildlife stop by. It is very peaceful. We have two Queen beds in each downstairs bedroom and 2 single beds upstairs, as well as a pull out bed in the closet. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook meals and there is an electric grill that can be used outside on the porch. There is Wi-Fi and cable TV available. The front porch features rocking chairs under the gazebo for enjoying the woods and listening to the crickets and cicadas (and maybe seeing a deer if you're lucky!). There is a fire pit outside for roasting marshmallows, cooking potatoes and hot dogs, or just enjoying the fire light.

The location is very quiet even though there are houses close by on either side. The house is comfortable and Ginger was available by phone for information. While we enjoyed our stay, we wished the bathrooms and kitchen were a little cleaner.
It was perfect for us. We have children/grandchildren in Atlanta. The proximity of the property to A
Ginger had the cottage all decorated inside and out with welcoming holiday cheer. We were also greeted with snacks when we arrived as well as some delightful breakfast items. The fire pit area was a very special surprise as we hosted our family to a campfire party with marshmallow roasting and enjoyed singing Christmas Carols around the fire. The home itself was completely comfortable and provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Ginger is a great host! We'll definitely return.
You all were wonderful guests. You made the cottage even more of a home away from home and left everything in perfect condition. Thank you so much for filling the cottage with your wonderful holiday energy. You are all welcome back any time:)
Great vacation at the Country Cottage
Our stay at the country cottage was great .. we will have many loving memories of our Thanksgiving with family in McDonough. Although the weather was less than perfect, the cottage was warm & cozy & the location worked well for us. Ginger is a lovely person and took care of all our needs. Would definitely recommend renting the cottage.
Thanks so much for the lovely review. It was so nice meeting you all and I hope you will visit again.
House is very charming. Well of the road.
Our group enjoyed our stay. We were centrally located to the places we wanted to visit during our trip. There were a few plumbing issues but we worked around it. Hope we will visit again soon.
Gorgeous home located in a beautiful quiet location.
Loved staying in Ginger's home. Absolutely loved the house and Ginger is very kind and thoughtful. It is very beautiful and peaceful here. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay.
Enjoyed having you all visit and you are welcome back any time!:)
