About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)
Need a place to unwind and relax? Triple Creek Farm is on the banks of Talladega Creek overlooking the historic Waldo Covered Bridge and old grist mill. Gold used to be mined in the local area and many modern day prospectors come from far and wide to pan Talladega Creek for gold. The farm is 20 acres of oaks, dogwoods, pines and wildflowers surrounded by the Talladega National Forest, with no neighbors in sight! It is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians at the base of Cheaha Mountain.
You may want to spend your days fishing or tubing the creek or exploring the incredible spring display of wildflowers such as trillium, wild geranium and red buckeye. Perhaps you would enjoy mountain biking the miles of Talladega National Forest roads or the Chief Ladiga Rail Trial near by. Love hiking and backpacking, the Pinhoti Trail, the longest trail in Alabama, is just 2 miles away. Maybe you are a road biker and want to climb from Waldo up to the highest point in Alabama, Mt Cheaha. You can ride your bike out of the Triple Creek Farm drive way and do this.
Just a few miles away is Desoto Caverns Park, where you can explore a deep underground cave, and spend the day enjoying their many family fun activities.
Waldo is just outside the Talladega city limits. Talladega is home to the historic Ritz Theater and the annual April in Talladega pilgrimage of homes. So much fun to choose from... but, perhaps you just look forward to relaxing on the big front screened porch watching birds at the feeder and the lazy creek roll by.
Then, of course, if you are a Nascar fan... Waldo is just down the road (about 20 miles) from the Talladega Superspeedway! Planning to come to Dega to drive a race car on the fastest track in all the land? After a fast paced day of racing, come stay in the country and relax!
There is a full kitchen, but if you'd rather not cook, hop in the car and run to Talladega, 6 miles or Oxford, 20 miles, for a selections of restaurants, shops and movie theaters.
Feel free to contact Maggie for more information. She spent over 20 years exploring the mountains on foot, by bike and on horseback! You will find maps of the area and lots of information on things to do, when you arrive at the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Waldo, AL, USA:
Maggie lived at the Triple Creek Farm in Waldo for over 16 years while teaching science at the Alabama School for the Deaf. She raised goats, horses, chickens and bees. There is still a beautiful garden spot near the covered bridge being managed by a thoughtful neighbor. Maggie still loves this place!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is nothing quite like communing with nature in a beautiful place near a moving stream. Even if you are visiting for a special event like the Talladega Race or to do day hiking along the Pinhoti Trail, you will find it valuable to spend some quiet time just sitting on the porch and listening to nature!
