The host Patrick was awesome, helped us locate the best spot as well as hooked us up with firewood and a burn barrel. The ranch is secluded and beautiful, with friendly animals and a great lake view. We will be back for sure

Such a unique and amazing experience! Patrick and Melanie are some of the nicest people we have ever met, so accommodating, caring and considerate. Always checked in on us and helped us in every way we need, they even helped me break into my car when I locked my keys inside. The site was wonderful, very open land but we felt very in touch with nature and woke up to the cattle around us and Apple (one of their lovely dogs) was always with us. My dog had a wonderful time running around the ranch and playing with their dogs. It was amazing to be so up close with the animals. They let us feed one of the newborn lambs and the cattle even started eating out of our hands. We spent one of the afternoons at Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge which is about a 40 min drive away but there are a lot of hikes and activities. It was one of my personal favorite camping trips and I highly recommend it to anyone.

The best part is coming into the ranch. There are two amazing dogs (apple and Stevie). They will greet you! Apple will be your best friend but watch out she likes to take things in the middle of the night. The lake in the middle of the property is so beautiful. There are cows, lambs, emus, two roosters, a horse, and a beautiful orange house cat. This place was more than I could have ever expected. They will have fresh meat to sell soon. Melanie and Patrick were more than hospitable. I will definitely be coming back!!!

We couldn't get there till almost dark, but Patrick met us with a barrel full of water for our camper and helped us get set up. Absolutely beautiful location, right on the pond, no lights to compete with the stars, just enough shade during the day. The kids were in heaven, and so were we! So peaceful - we could watch from across the pond while the kids helped feed and play with the animals.
I can't say enough about the hospitality and the experience in general. We will be back!!

We had such a great time!! Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to meet Melanie, but Patrick was very kind and helpful. If you are looking for a place to be at peace with nature and some amazing animals, then this is the perfect spot. We had lots of fun with the 2 stars of the farm; Apple and Stevie. They kept us well entertained and stayed by our campsite almost the entire time we were there. The animals are all well cared for and very friendly. We brought our goldendoodle, Bentley and he had an incredible time playing with Stevie and Apple as well as swimming in the lake. We all had a wonderful time and didn't want to leave. We will be back for sure!!!!!

If you are looking for a quiet off the grid place, this is it! Our host was beyond kind and helpful. He went out of his way for us a couple times. Since we were on bikes, he helped us thru a section of road that was too sandy to ride, and ran an errand to town. We had a wonderful time! 😊

This place was a simple kind of wonderful. It was exactly as the host described. We were camping across from the spring fed pond most of the trip. We both relaxed on floats, canoed, and swam in the pond. I even caught 4 large mouth bass. Most of the animals were happy to see people and loved the attention. Especially the lady sheep named pearl. She followed us anywhere we took her. My girlfriend was able to take lots of pictures and really enjoyed the trip. Patrick also took us for a walk to a cool place called willow. We had their pet doggie named Apple stay with us most of the trip. She even protected us and chased away a Fox in the middle of the night! The optional breakfast made for us was well worth it. The farm is not luxurious by any means but that’s not what we wanted anyway. It was full of heart and hospitality. We left feeling relaxed and really enjoyed our visit. We both hope to go again!

What an awesome place! Patrick and Melanie were the best hosts. The animals were kind and well kept and the "farm" was a great spot to bring our 3 year old. We set our tent up right next to the lake and the sunsets were incredible. Pat went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. There was plenty of firewood already gathered and even more to collect throughout the property. We will definitely be back!

Nice property off the grid. Melanie helped me out when I got in a jam. My son enjoyed fishing with Patrick. The fishing stories have already begun. Great times. Ty.
