Why We Like This Place

• The spectacular grounds of Henry Ford’s former winter retreat encompass all the grace and charm of low country Georgia. With white-fenced equestrian paddocks, ponds teeming with birds, and trees dripping in moss, your guests will be wowed.

• The Greek Revival Main House sets an elegant atmosphere for outdoor ceremonies and tented receptions. You can exchange vows on the lush front lawn and enjoy cocktails by the pool overlooking the Ogeechee River.

• Happily you can stay on, because you definitely won’t want to leave.
You and your guests can linger for the weekend to enjoy fishing, golf, a first-class spa and luxury suite accommodations at the Main House of this upscale coastal community venue.
