Georgetown chateau / country house description

Enjoy a special moment on this island getaway. Once a bed and breakfast establishment named The Indigo Inn, the original house is one of the oldest on Drayton Island.

Now a very comfortable vacation home with 5 bedrooms, 4 baths (two with claw foot tubs), living room, dining room, glorious screened porches upstairs and down, a very efficient kitchen with pantry, library/gallery, 3 central ac/heating units for zone control, outdoor BBQ and entertaining area with fire pit, dock, and much more.

Imagine yourself, family and friends enjoying your next getaway at The Indigo Inn. Or consider it your own fishing lodge with a sustainable paddock and pasture for your pleasure horse. For the writer, artist or musician it’s your retreat. For kayakers and naturalists there is the island/lake world to explore. An ideal retreat for meditation and creativity.

Take the opportunity to experience this secluded and private hideaway and create memories that will last a lifetime.

    Guest to pay additional pet fee in the amount of $ 50.00 per stay. PETS are permitted only with prior approval and the Pet Addendum must be completed. If you bring your pet, you are expected to have it under control. If it is not a social animal and barks excessively it would probably be best for you to keep it inside. Wildlife, gators and snakes can cause harm to your pet. Obnoxious pets and guests can cause problems and disrupt your peace of mind. If you go for walks, stay on the main road (Drayton Island Road)…the natural driveways or paths are private so you should not assume it would be OK for you to explore unless invited by the owner....moreless

Truly a throw back to old florida living. Mother nature can be humbling and also provide you with some speclacural surprises. Watch a storm rolling in from Lake George, deer grazing in the pasture or strolling up to the grove and house.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1994

Why Georgetown:
The home of a writer and his wife, a sculptor, the indigo inn is a world apart from the noise and hustle of city life. We wanted to turn down the volume of our lives; cut the speed; release the pressure; breathe the fresh air that blows across the miles of water in lake George, and recharge our personal batteries. We loved the horses, dogs, cats and bird who shared the generous space with us. We enjoy the oranges, grapefruit, tangerines and pecans on the property. The indigo inn is an ideal retreat for meditation, recreation and creativity.
