We come to this area of Georgia every Christmas to visit family between Madison and Athens. We typically stay in a chain hotel, but this year w/out the kids decided to change it up and find a B&B to support local small business owners. We could not have been more pleased and delighted. This Inn, and it's tranquil 100 acres of farm, trails, and warm friendly people (and animals) could not have been a better choice. Crystal and Ellis, the owners, are warm and inviting, really fun and engaging. Breakfast was amazing each morning, hand made by Crystal, and included items directly from this organic farm, including goat cheese and duck eggs. The property is clean, comfortable, and 'takes you back' eventhough the actual barn and farmhouse/rooms were built in the 1990's. Every detail is attended to. We stayed in the "Garden Room" which was large, comfortable, and supremely quiet. Take a hike down the river trail- the first "Certified Forest Therapy Trail" in the US. The two farm dogs, both Great Pyrenees pups- "Mudpie" and "Zorro: took the walk with us, all the way down to the goregous dock on Lake Oconee. They actually took care of us- running ahead but waiting for us at the end of the trail to be sure we returned safely just before dusk. There are chickens, turkeys, cows, horses, a donkey, peacocks, and 3 ducks (Huey, Duey, and Louie) among a legion of cows. The property has a large solar panel that follows the sun's path all day and provides something like 33% of the properties power needs daily. We were there in winter, but the organic farm was expansive and we look forward to seeing it in the spring and summer. There is a church/chapel on-site that is always open and accessible if you want to visit. And of course, the obligatory tire swing. Pricing is not that different from a 3 star hotel, but a world of difference in comfort, ambience, peacefulness, and fun.…
I recently stayed at the Farmhouse Inn on Hundred Acre Farm, and already, I cannot wait to return. Not only were the owners and staff brimming with warmth and hospitality, their animals on the farm were a true delight. My favorites were the two Great Pyrenees—Magpie and Zoro—who watch over the chickens, ducks, turkeys, and peacocks! The donkey and horses along with the peaceful nature walk through the forest by the pond made me forget all about the hustle and bustle of city living. I slept like a baby in the comfy king bed! Peach French toast along with fruit, grits, and sausage for breakfast was delicious. Looking forward to the next trip!
Stayed while in the area for a business meeting. The owners were so hospitable and welcoming! The room was clean, cozy and comfortable... the food (breakfast) was fresh from the farm... and the grounds were idyllic!
The Farmhouse Inn is a charming inn set on a beautiful, peaceful property. The owners, Ellis and Crystal, are pleasant and interesting to talk with. In downtown Madison, we were told that Crystal was the "Martha Stewart" of Morgan County and she certainly lived up to that! Our breakfast of blueberry pancakes and a goat cheese frittata was wonderful. My husband and I took turns kayaking. The Apalachee River joins Lake Oconee just before this property and the kayaking was enjoyable. Only 8-9 minute drive to downtown Madison. I highly recommend a stay here!
My Husband and I spent a peaceful overnight at the farm. Beautiful setting with many animals. Crystals breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We were greeted by Cyndi and Found her very informative. If you want a escape from this hectic world I would definitely recommend a visit to the farm. There is a charming 100 year old church on the property.
