Lake Sinclair cabin description

With one of Lake Sinclair's best views, the historic Wildwood Flower Retreat and Compound is perfect for couples, families, and that special weekend away. The Retreat is completely furnished and decorated in a sportsman's theme of wildlife prints, southern college football, golf and fishing motifs. Sit in the hot tub, while watching the waves hit the lake wall!

Home of famed author of 'Go West Young Man and Don't Come Back,' the Wildwood Flower is one of the first homes on Lake Sinclair.

The Wildwood Flower was built in 1955 by the former 'boss hog'-type mayor of Milledgeville, Walter B. Williams Jr. who 'ruled' Milledgeville, GA from the 50's through the 70's. This home served as the back-drop for many of Walter's political meetings and lavish lakefront parties - complete with live bands that won many 'votes' for the mayor! The house has only had two owners ... The Williams Family and the current owner, Gary Spillers who has owned the property for the last 13 years.

The Wildwood Flower's pavilion is big enough for a variety of waterfront activities and entertainment. Private fishing areas are also available to guests.

The beautiful morning sunrise, the gorgeous panoramic lake views and a campground-feel make this renovated sports retreat irresistible!

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: Gary currently splits his time between Atlanta and Milledgeville in pursuit of commercial/investment real estate opportunities. In his spare time, he enjoys writing 'mostly true' tales about himself and his interesting array of suspect friends and the 'messes' they used to get into as told about in 'Go West Young Man, But Don't Come Back!' by Gary Spillers (2011), available on Amazon. A native of Milledgeville, Gary starred in all sports while attending Baldwin High School and took his love of football to Troy University, where he became an All-Conference linebacker and was voted team captain his senior year. After graduating with a degree in marketing and business administration in 1970, Gary launched what became a 34-year real estate career.
