About Alicia Ahlers

My husband Glenn and I have been married for almost 30 years. We have 14 children and 7 grandchildren. My husband is a builder contractor and I have stayed home to educate our children. 5 of our children are adopted from Liberia, Africa in 2006 And 1 more in 2017. Their stories of war, hunger, and heartbreak has led us to continue to travel back and identify ways to help. We are in the process of developing a Ministry called Pepper Coast Ministry, Anchoring Hope Orphan Side to serve the Orphans, Widows and underprivileged in countries such as Liberia.

Alicia Ahlers purchased this guest house in 2000

Why Alicia Ahlers chose Pendleton

46 acres to ramble and hike, there are horses and an outdoor pool and hammocks out in the spring, summer, and fall. Lots of quiet nature and privacy. The property is bordered on three sides by creeks and they are always filled with fossil and critters.

What makes this guest house unique

We are out in the country with all the privacy and quiet but only a few miles off the highway to anywhere!

The Waterfall Walkout Is Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our group included myself and my husband and my 2 sisters and their spouses and my 2 nieces and one adult child and we had sufficient space. Every amenity was provided for and great care has been taken to make sure every detail of every need is met in the house. The screened in porch was really nice for visiting. I would say this would be a great space for a get away where you are not going in and out of town a lot and also, it's not necessarily the best place to take toddlers and children below school age just because it is geared toward adults and the kids like to mess with all of the pretty stuff that is around. The driveway is single lane, steep and long but not impassible with normal passenger vehicles. There is no cell service in the house and limited service occasionally outside. Since we arrived during storms the internet was down but it eventually started working again and they had wifi there as well as a landline. This is the perfect getaway for relaxing, no doubt. You hardly knew anyone was there even though you know a whole family was above you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. The decor lets you know they love God and are praying people and you also know you are supporting a good work by staying there! Thank you Ahlers family for making such a lovely space!

This was the perfect spot for our group of ten women.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was great and had everything you would ever need. The porch and outside space were great as well. Since it rained we were able to sit outside and play cards and hang together. Most of all, the family was really lovely and welcoming. They all came down and, being a choir group, we sang for them, and their daughter Hope sang for us a couple of songs she had written. They were lovely. We all visited together for quite a while and it was the highlight of our trip. and although it is in the country, it is very close to La Grange, which is a cute little town. We also went to a botanical gardens and Artisan Distillery for a tour. They were both great and really close by. It was nice to go on an outing and have a great space to just be together with your friends. I would recommend it to anyone.

Tranquil getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The homeowners put all the extra touches one doesn’t get at a hotel! Bath salts and toiletries. And of course the beautiful waterfall view which was lite up at night to make the stay extra special! The owners were very responsive to all questions since I this was my first booking at HomeAway. Big kitchen and bedrooms. Saw lots of wildlife from our living room window!
