“A Country Home”
“A Country Home”
The Lodge at Mablewood is located in scenic Decatur County, Georgia. This beautiful lodge is centrally located in a quiet country setting between Bainbridge, Georgia and Tallahassee, Florida – just a few miles east of Highway 27. The Lodge has five beautifully appointed rooms for up to six valued residents who will call Mablewood home.
Built on a beautiful 125-acre farm where tobacco and peanuts once grew, the Lodge at Mablewood was completed in October 2013 and was uniquely built and furnished so that when you enter, you know that you are at home and above all, welcome. This beautiful country home will bring back memories of days gone by, a simpler time when things moved at a slower pace and folks appreciated the serenity of country living. Residents will be able to visit and enjoy the original home-place of Willie and Mabel Cooper. Built in 1887, this little treasure of Southern history remains on the property and is just a short stroll down the sidewalk from the Lodge.
The property is planted in tall, graceful Loblolly pines with stands of native hardwoods that attract local wildlife such as deer, quail, turkey, fox, squirrel, raccoon and all kinds of birds and butterflies. In addition to the abundant wildlife on the farm, the Lodge is home to three fun-loving donkeys, Blanche (mother), Rose (daughter) and Donnie (son). They are not only great pets, but they are part of our Mablewood family. The Lodge also maintains free-range chickens that provide farm-fresh eggs for our resident’s home-cooked breakfasts every single day.
Not only will all the animals (wild & domestic) keep you entertained but residents who enjoy gardening are invited to put their horticultural talents to use at our spacious greenhouse. Then, when the seasons begin to change and there is a hint of fall in the air, residents may want to enjoy the abundance of fresh air & sunshine by sitting with a good book on one of 6 spacious porches or take a leisurely stroll around the property. If walking is a bit of a challenge but being outside is a true passion, then just ask one of our friendly and dedicated staff to take you for a ride on the property and enjoy the beauty of Mablewood; your new country home.
