Patio with Seating

In Georgia that can be anytime of the year with our mild climate. The patio area has table seating for eight to dine outside. It has ceiling fans to keep you cool on a warm day or night. You can rock out to music through our system playing one of our preset stations or from your phone, iPod or iPad.

Patio seating

Fire Pit

Enjoy a warm fire and tell stories until the wee hours. There is wood and kindling to burn, a lighter to get things started, gloves for safety, Adirondack chairs for relaxing and sticks for roasting hotdogs or marshmallows.


There is a two-car parking pad next to garage with signage that says ‘Guest Parking’. Next to the parking pad, alongside the left side of the house is a flagstone path that will take you directly to the entrance of the terrace level apartment. An additional guest spot is located next to the carport in front of the house. Again, a ‘Guest Parking’ sign designates the assigned area. If additional parking is needed, we will direct you were to park on the property – there’s 11 acres, we’ll find a spot!

Additional parking


The retreat makes bringing in your luggage and crafting supplies even easier with an elevator. The entrance is just inside the garage, so park in the driveway for loading and unloading. It only takes about 40 seconds to go up or down. The elevator lets you out inside the terrace level apartment.
