Property description

'The Shack' at Murder Creek Plantation in Jasper County, Georgia, is a renovated tenant house from the 1920's. It is located on a large pine plantation near Charlie Elliot Wildlife Preserve. Being far from a big town definitely has its advantages, especially if you like to do bird-watching, astronomy, hunt, fish, hike in the woods, and just enjoy the great outdoors in general.

'The Shack' has an open floor plan with three bunk bed sets, enough to accommodate 7 people with a queen-sized mattress on one of the lower bunks. There is a dining table and chairs, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a living room with big leather sofa and gas fireplace. No, you don't have an outhouse--there is a small but modern bath with a shower. Just out the back door is a large deck with a grill. There is also a fire pit in the back yard.

If you want to dine out, the famous Blue Willow Inn is just a few minutes away. Reynolds Plantation and the Ritz Carlton at Lake Oconee are a 30-minute drive.

Get away from it all at 'The Shack' at Murder Creek Plantation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Monticello:
Jasper County, Georgia is full of wildlife--deer, turkey, ducks, rabbits, birds, wild boar, bobcats, fish. We like to be outside with our dogs and enjoy the beauty of nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Charlie Elliot Wildlife Preserve is just down the road. Also the Blue Willow Inn and its great buffet is a few miles away in Social Circle. The cities of Madison, Mansfield, and Monticello are close by for a quick shopping trip. Lake Oconee, Reynolds Plantation and the Ritz Carlton are a half hour away. Athens is close by for those football game days in the Fall. The famous Deer Festival in Monticello in November each year is lots of fun for all.
