About Barbie Hartsfield

Barbie (owner) designed the cabin after finding the lot during a week-end trip to the area and her and her family - built the cabin - - The mounted deer head on the wall is her son's first - - and he was a young teenager at the time and helped build the cabin - as well as his father and both of his grandfathers, one came down all the way from Wisconsin to help! Barbie now lives in the Chicago area. She lived in Tallahassee Florida where she raised her children - - and traveled to Lake Eufuala and fell in love with the area! - - just 2 hours from Tallahassee and 3 from Atlanta.

Barbie Hartsfield purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Barbie Hartsfield chose Georgia

Owner Barbie, discovered Lake Eufaula (also called George F. Walter lake) on a week-end trip to celebrate a birthday and fell in love with the clear water and sandy beaches and tall Georgia pine trees and the surrounding Alabama Hills - the lake is Ideal for swimming, boating and fishing and has many fishing tournaments and events held at the George T. Bagby State Park which is where she stayed for their week-end and later purchased the Buck Creek Cabin lake lot just 3 miles north of that State Park. Only 2 hours from Tallahassee and 3 from Atlanta!

What makes this cabin unique

She loves to fish from the dock while watching the sunset! The dock is covered and many times she and her friends enjoyed a summer rain shower right on the dock! We float on rafts right off the dock and enjoy music from the ipod player that is provided. This covered dock has a covered boat slip and large enough for the whole family to enjoy fishing - Night fishing is alot of fun too! My nephew loves the dock so much he even slept several nights on it! It is a rejuvenating - relaxing - escape "off grid" from busy stressful living - hear the wind in the pines - the birds of all kinds - warm sun in the day and cozy fire at night that keeps brisk air away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great time as usual! Enjoyed fishing from the dock - caught over 30 fish! Enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the dock - - and we will return again next year! We love Buck Creek Cabin!

Great place to relax.

  • 4 of 5

Great small cabin. If you are looking to relax and leave the stress of life behind for a while, this is the place. My family and I enjoyed our time. Cabin is small but very nice and the dock is great!! A couple notes: Power at the dock did not work , so if you want to charge your boat batteries bring a long extension cord, the cost of the cabin does not include a cleaning fee, so before unpacking , give it a good wipe down and there is not a stove/oven. There were several outdoor grilling option there so if you can grill, a plus!!! Overall, we really loved it and are planning on coming back.

Needed the break from the Stresses of Life

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time while we were there. Relaxation well deserved!!!!! The only negatives that I can say about this getaway are the lights on the dock do not work for fishing at night and the lights on the ceiling fan need replaced, the water pressure in shower is terrible. Other than that we had a wonderful time. Thanks for providing us a getaway that was well needed.

Serene and peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Adorable studio cabin on a wooded lot. Fantastic view of the lake. Not really meant for more than 4 comfortably. Very peaceful and serene if you need to walk away for the weekend.
