PRIVATE LUXURY HOME with SWIMMING POOL
Lushly landscaped, gated property of 20 heavily wooded acres offers you the ultimate in privacy and serenity. This beautifully appointed estate showcases an open floor plan, gleaming hardwood floors and abundant natural light. The base rate is for 2 people, and to help maintain the integrity of this special home and grounds, we encourage small groups of 2-4 adults, but with four oversized suites, this large home will very comfortably accommodate 6 overnight guests. The owner makes this home available to select ADULT GUESTS WHO DESIRE A PEACEFUL GETAWAY AND NO GATHERINGS OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED. NO MORE THAN 6 PRE-APPROVED PERSONS MAY BE ON THIS PROPERTY THROUGHOUT YOUR STAY, so PLEASE DO NOT request to book this property if you are seeking a venue for ANY kind of gathering or event as this will not be permitted.
The first floor luxurious master suite overlooks the pool area, as does the large and comfortable gathering room which adjoins the bright, gourmet kitchen. The first floor also boasts a cozy library, garden room overlooking the pool area, and a soaring and dramatic living and dining room and 2 story foyer with winding staircase. Upstairs you will find 3 large en-suite bedrooms, each with flat screen TV, and 2 of which lead out to a large covered porch overlooking the pool and pond; a perfect place to enjoy reading a book, taking a nap, or simply breathing in the tranquility and views. Rounding out the 2nd floor is a game room with billiards table, table tennis, and 2 wall mounted flat screen TVs. Outdoors the property features a huge in ground salt water swimming pool with pavilion containing a fire pit (see below for details), sound system, and beautiful, private 4 acre pond (sorry, no fishing permitted). Infants and older teens MAY be considered, but In the interests of their safety, this home is not suitable for young children. We have another outstanding waterfront property nearby (see #3728463) that is family friendly. These homes are located an easy 20-25 minute drive from historic downtown Augusta and the Augusta National Golf Course.

About Lora Rutland

Lora Rutland purchased this House in 2012
Why Lora Rutland chose Columbia County
Augusta and the surrounding areas do not offer a lot of choice when it comes to luxury overnight accommodations. During the Masters golf tournament week each year many local residents leave Augusta and rent out their homes to accommodate the need for additional overnight accommodations. We began renting this house during Masters week and found others were excited about renting this home at other times of the year due to it's great location, tranquil setting and storybook feel. Many have fallen in love with this home and find it a great alternative to a hotel. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or have business or an event in Augusta or the surrounding CSRA, we know you will enjoy making this your home away from home. Stay here during your visit to Augusta GA while participating or attending events such as: IronMan, the Annual Arts in the Heart festival, the annual Westobou festival (both in historic downtown Augusta, GA and of course for Masters 2019.
What makes this House unique
Upon entering the attractive security gate and driving along the cobblestone driveway, you will be enveloped in beauty and serenity. When you glimpse the home through the lush landscaping, you immediately know you have entered a special place. Inside you will find a dramatic home, wonderful views to the grounds, comfortable furnishings, tasteful antiques and intriguing artwork. You can look forward to a superior nights sleep in our ultra-comfortable beds and bedding. Enjoy indoor activities like playing pool and table tennis while watching the game on dual flat screen TVs. Outdoor fun is abundant with the large in ground pool and fabulous pavilion with fire pit. Relax in an abundance of places to lounge, read a book, take a nap, or simply breath in the serenity and scenery. We strive to make your stay one brimming with happy memories. Be sure to check out our 5 star reviews left by past guests.

The photos of the property on the website looked so good I was worried that we might be disappointed--not so, this property is even better than the photos show!
A fantastic property and great that the owners pricing policy means that it is affordable for a couple. Everyone should treat themselves to a stay at this 5 star house.
Booking was straightforward and Lora met us at the house to show us round and make sure any queries we had were answered.
We would go back in a heartbeat!
Whole property is delightful
Guests find their own favorite spots: upstairs balcony with water view, feminine study with reading spot, gourmet kitchen, TV and reading den,etc. Everyone will love the saline pool kept immaculately clean with nearby pavilion and firepit. Always a soul-soothing stay.
Who knew you'd be back so soon after just staying with us in July? Thank you for coming to us for your Hurricane Irma "sta-cation" and as always thank you for the kind review.
Rest, Relaxation and Romance!
We found all three in this amazing home! From brunch on the patio, to afternoons in the pool and sunsets over the pond, we were thrilled to spend a romantic getaway at Chigoe Creek Retreat.
Chigoe Creek Retreat is offered to guests for the exact reason for your stay. We at SD Properties are so happy you found exactly what you were looking for in a Romantic Getaway and look forward to having you stay again in the future.
Great place! Very private and were not bothered by any one! Perfect getaway!
Thank you for the kind words in your review and staying with us for your 10th Anniversary Getaway. We hope to have you stay with us again for future Anniversary Getaways.
3rd time at this property. always wonderful
Have rented this property THREE times and each time it has been amazing.
Thank you for staying, not once, not twice, but now THREE times with us and we look forward to having you back year after year for the tennis tournament here in Augusta, GA.
Stay here but be prepared to have to drag yourself unwillingly away at the end of your vacation.
Beautiful welcoming home lovingly maintained on tranquil property with white arbor swings on the lawn and a pavilion by the lake. The saline pool is perfect with alternating shade and sun as the day progresses. A pavilion by the pool with cooling fans. A spacious second floor balcony overlooking the pool, lawn and lake. The beds are so comfortable and the spacious gourmet kitchen is there to make whatever you want from omelets to shrimp scampi.
The photos represent the home well but they cannot give you the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere of staying there. A special place like your own private resort.
Thank you for the beautiful review! Reviews like yours are just what we aim for with each and every guest that stays with us. We take pride in every aspect of the Property and to read your review stating how much you enjoyed it all means so much to us. Thank you.
