This newly updated 5,600 SF ranch house sits tucked into a very private 7 acre Hickory forest overlooking a private 2 acre lake teeming with Bass and other game fish. Relax on the 50 foot long screened in porch and watch the water and listen to the frogs at night. Enjoy a warm bath in the claw foot tub or relax at the bar. Get a great workout in the gym and step into the large shower with body sprays. Super private and complete luxury and fun. This place has it all.

Very scenic property with over 7 acres of gorgeous forest and private lake with canoe and kayak. The property has a gazebo, two bridges and a number of very scenic areas for photographs so could be used for a retreat or family reunion, etc. Folks that have enjoyed Hickory Lodge to date have been family reunions, friends getting together, weddings, company team building, company presentations, meditation, wellness, church and yoga retreats, crafting weekends, fishing and sports get-aways, intown Atlanta folks looking to get to the country without driving for many hours, traveling rock bands, sports teams, special celebrations, men's and women's getaways and couples looking for a romantic hideaway close to home. The Hickory Lodge was recently even used as a location for a movie production due to its differing looks of the structure/property and also bands have been using it for small intimate shows.

PLEASE NOTE! I do not have 7 formal bedrooms. I have 7 private sleeping rooms of which 4 are formal bedrooms, one is shared with the home gym, one is the very large laundry/office w great view of the lake and the last is my extra large master closet with its own window, power and single bed. I've been getting hammered by people that don't read my listing. Airbnb doesn't give me the ability to list my place as having 4 beedrooms and 3 more sleeping rooms. All I can do is list it as having 7 bedrooms. If you need 6-7 formal bedrooms please do not book my place!! Thank you.

This newly updated 5,600 SF ranch house sits tucked into a very private 7 acre Hickory forest overlooking a private 2 acre lake teeming with Bass and other game fish. Relax on the 50 foot long screened in porch and watch the water and listen to the frogs at night. Watch a storm come in and hear the wind in the trees. Relax on the big deck at the side of the house or enjoy the chairs on the front porch.

The main floor features solid walnut, teak, cork and bamboo floors. Huge modern kitchen with eat in table, couch and large granite bar/island. An entire extended family can hang out in the kitchen!! Double oven, warming drawer. gas range and much more. Large dining room can seat 12 or more. Living room features grandfather clock, large masonry fireplace, grand piano, flat screen TV, WiFi and plenty of seating. Large laundry room and home office combination room that is sometimes used as a 4th private sleeping room on the main level.

Also on the main floor are jack n jill bedrooms with shared full bath and queen beds. The large master suite features king size bed, teak bathroom with large walk in shower with rain shower head and body sprays. Claw foot tub and double marble sinks. Light a candle, fill the tub, open the doors to the screen porch and listen to the frogs. There is a newly installed electronic fireplace at the foot of the claw foot tub which is beautiful. Double doors off the master suite open to the huge deck and outdoor fireplace. The house even has a full sized heated massage table close to the claw foot tub on the screen porch for a soak and a massage!! Another flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Recently the master bathroom has had a beautiful sliding barn door added that transforms the large master closet into a single bedroom when needed. This creates 5 private sleeping rooms on the main floor if needed.

The pub level of the house on the lower level is all fun. Another two private sleeping rooms and bathroom with another flat screen TV in the family bedroom. The family bedroom sleeps 5 with two queen beds and a single bunk bed. In between the two private sleeping rooms are large seating areas, restaurant booths, games, band jam area, etc. There is also another masonry fireplace, and then about any pub game you can think of. Air hockey, ping pong, foosball, bumper pool, a poker table, corn hole, golf putting area and dart board. Fully equipped home gym. The other private sleeping room on the pub level is shared with the gym and is a very comfortable sofa bed with foam topper. Very quite, dark wonderful sleeping room.

The feature of the lower level is the commercial sized oak pub, restaurant booths, band jam area/stage, salt water fish tank and wine cellar/intimate sitting room. The wine cellar is perfect for lighting a few candles and unwinding in this very dark quiet room which can seat 8+. Out the double doors to a large lower deck to play corn hole or walk down the stairs to a fire pit or further down to a picnic table, lakeside stage and the dock with a canoe and kayak. Go for an evening paddle and explore the shoreline. Throw a line and catch game fish. Immediately to the west of the dock and picnic table is a newly constructed stage (16x20) used for wedding ceremonies, acoustic concerts, yoga, sleeping outside and just hanging out near the lake. For an additional charge, a bed can be set up on the stage with bug net! A truly romantic place to spend the night when the weather is cool.

I will consider pets although I've had some bad experiences with larger dogs slobbering and dripping from their mouths on the wood floors. Sharp nails scratch the floors and many dogs bring in dirt and small stones in the pads of their feet. I also have a hard time with heavy shedding dogs. I do have a small pet deposit and usually ask folks to keep the dog or pet on the lower level which is carpeted. That's easier to clean than the wood floors and not so easy to damage. So if you have a pet you'd like to bring, simply ask and we can discuss. You'll find I'm willing to consider anything.

Go for a walk in the woods on 7 acres with two streams, two bridges, large granite out croppings and amazing old Beech, Oak and Hickory trees. The property features a g un ran ge and arch ery ran ge as well. The house is very private at the end of a 500 foot long drive but less than 5 minutes to many food and grocery choices. A fantastic location in Cherokee County horse country called Hickory Flat. Secluded but very close to all the comforts and Hwy 140 that leads to I-575 to the north and Alpharetta to the south. Downtown Woodstock, Canton and Alpharetta are only minutes away and offer breweries, fine dining, night life and shopping.

If you are into wildlife, you might wake to turkeys on the front porch or deer on either side of the lodge. The woods are full of all kinds of birds, frogs, toads, turtles and many mammals. We even see on a regular basis a Pileated wood pecker pair in the trees and King Fisher and Great Blue Herons on the lake. Hawks, Owls, Geese, Ducks and just about every song bird you can think of.

The lodge even has two sewing machines, iron and board for any clothing repairs that might be needed.

Coffee bar - being a coffee freak, the lodge features an extensive coffee & tea preparation area in the kitchen. Coffee and herb grinder, Keurig machine, french press, esspresso/cappuccino machine & 12 cup coffee pot. 40 cup pots available upon request.

To determine your party size, simply determine the largest group which will be staying on any one night and that is your group size to use for booking. I decided that how many beds are ultimately used is the determining factor as in the end laundry, wear and tear and cleaning drive price.

Cleanliness: please if you are a stickler for every square inch of a place being spotless the lodge is probably not for you. Sure I get many many reviews that the place was sparkling clean but others rate me down for cleanliness. I even just had someone say my laundry room and master closet were a mess!
Its my house!! Keep in mind this is nearly 5.600 SF of space and most groups use all of it. If I were to hire a professional company to clean every square inch of space after every group I'd have to charge a $300 cleaning fee. I keep my cleaning fee to a minimum by having a professional do the bathrooms, floors, hard surfaces and kitchen and the rest I do. All hard surfaces are sanitized, floors are cleaned etc. all according to the Airbnb standards. But if you go looking for dirt you will probably find it! Close to impossible to catch everything after every group but I sure try.

Also this place is a lodge in the woods! Critters, bugs, etc might just walk through. Well its not like that but I have people every once and a while give me a terrible rating because a Wood Roach or other bug got into the house under a door or through an opening in the brick walls. This place was built in 1974 and there ar spots where bugs get in. Its a fact of life when living in the woods. My exterminator says bugs come in and there's not much they can do about it. I've had the walls sealed and organic chemicals used. However every once and a while a bug gets in. If that's not you, don't stay here. Please!

My advice to you my potential guest! If you are a neat freak, are uptight, OCD, stressed out and have negative energy about you, please do not stay at my place. Happy, relaxed, fun people are more my style. This is a fun relaxing place and life is WAY too short for complications, complaining or stress!

I've also gotten knocked before by those that think my nightly rate is too high. I've been told that if I charge resort prices I shouldn't have a bed that squeaks or a stain on the carpet, etc. Yes my rate can get over $500 for a night like a resort BUT my rate includes many people and a resort is usually double occupancy. So for 10 people a resort might be $2500 a night and I'm $500. Really not the same. I encourage all that feel my rates are high to stay somewhere else. Fun, happy, smart, alive, wonderful people only please! No nitpicking or whining. Life is fun! Be fun.

The lodge has been recently updated and has two stages for live music. One inside on the pub level and one outside by the lake. If you are a band and want to book the lodge, let me know. We can work something out. If you'd like my band to come put on a private concert whilst you are here, let me know. We enjoy jamming for my guests. So far the reviews are rave. The Hickory Flat Band plays at the lodge every Wednesday night. If you are lucky enough to stay on a Wednesday we will certainly play for your group - usually for free. We do charge to play on Friday and Saturday nights as band members have to give up other paying gigs to play on those nights.

A truly amazing private place perfect for a couple or group. To book the Hickory Lodge you must be a fully verified guest by Airbnb which includes providing a valid government ID. I also require at least one member of the group to be 25 years old or older who is responsible for the group. I can be lenient on the minimum age requirement after some conversation, prior ratings and/or a meeting. In keeping with Airbnb rules - please no large parties where people from the outside are invited to drop by please! Fun is only for the people paying and staying unless we work something else out. I'm very flexible in what I allow at the Lodge. If you can dream it, I can make it happen.

I do offer extra services for an extra fee. Some examples are:

I do take groups out on my sexy 37' Sea Ray yacht. Watch a sunset, go swimming, relax w music, drink and sun. Its quite nice and always ready to go.

My band will play for your group - nominal fee. Its worth it! Have you ever sung with a live band? Our shows usually feature 2 hrs of live music and then we switch into karaoke mode if anyone wants to sing with the band. Then one of our singers is a professional DJ and we then move into fun as long as you want.

I will build/set a bonfire for you that will actually ignite and burn when you light it.

As you can see in the photos the lodge does have a gorgeous gold throne. Use of this is an extra charge. Free if you book the band.

I will set up the lodge with extra flowers or gift baskets, etc. Just tell me how I can make the place perfect for your group.

Massage therapists can be arranged for the massage table on the screen porch.

Performers can be hired for your event whatever it might be. The crazier the better! DJ's, dancers, music groups, etc.

A queen bed or two can be set up on the lakeside stage with bug nets for a very romantic night of sleeping under the stars.

A dance pole can be set up on the lower level. Daily rental fee applies.

Firewood - I now provide firewood that I purchase and haul so its ready for you. Its $10 a bundle (I pay $8.50) and you can pay me for however many bundles you use. Each group gets one free and then extras are $10.

Bands and musicians can rent the board, snake and PA to perform. I do ask that I be present at least to help get everything working. Please otherwise do not touch the equipment. Thank you!

You will find me to be VERY accomodating. HOWEVER, I hate surprises. Well some surprises I like. ;-) So if you book for 10 people I expect only 10 people to spend the night and only 10 people to be on the property during your stay. If you'd like to have a few people over for a meal or to visit during your stay please TELL ME. I do charge a small bit extra for extra people due to wear and tear and utilities etc. However am very fair when I'm told your plans. I've had a couple groups in the past book my place for 4-7 people and then invite 20. That's not cool and not allowed. I equate it to shoplifting. Be upfront and we'll get along just fine. No request is too crazy, wild or nuts but I need to know! Be honest about your plans whatever they are and we'll get along fine!

Thank you!!

Gdzie się zatrzymasz

Canton, Georgia, Stany Zjednoczone

This property is nestled in Cherokee County horse country - an area known as Hickory Flat. The property is extremely private but located less than 5 minutes from 2 large grocery stores (Kroger & Publix), multiple gas stations, just about every fast food joint, Mexican and other sit down restaurants, Walgreen's & CVS, banks, dentists, etc. Everything you need is a stones throw away but once on the property you won't think there is anyone around.

The location is amazing being close to I-575 and GA 400 only about 20 minutes away. Those will take you just about anywhere in the Metro area.

Also, Hickory Lodge is super close to three amazing live, work, play downtown areas that are a blast to explore and enjoy. Woodstock, Canton and Alpharetta downtown areas feature incredible restaurants, activities and entertainment.

I live nearby so happy to leave you alone or meet you and spend some time. If you have little ones that want to see horses or chickens we can arrange a visit to neighboring farms. I also have a large boat on a nearby lake if you want to go for a ride (additional expense). The boat can carry 10 guests and can be used overnight.
