Let me take you on a journey. A trip back in time. A place where the road ends and the enchantment of a simpler existence begins. Let me take you to Owl Creek Plantation.
Owl Creek is located on the AL/MS boundary in Pickens County, Alabama, just East of Macon, Mississippi. The yellow brick road truly does end at Owl Creek. When the lodge comes into view, it’s hard not to pull over on the lakeshore and take it in. Perfectly situated on the water’s edge, with 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, screened porches, massive dining and entertaining areas, and sunset view that are otherworldly, Owl Creek Lodge grabs your heart from first glance. The lodge looks as though it too was created “in the beginning” like it just belongs. Additionally, in the not too shabby guest house on the north end of the lake you’ll find 3 more bedrooms with another 2.5 baths. Owl Creek can easily sleep 22 guests comfortably and has not only been a family retreat for over 70 years, it has been the site of many weddings and other social functions.
If, and that’s a big “if”, you can drag yourself away from the lodge, you can begin to find your way around the 668 acres of unbelievable serenity and beauty. The improved road system winds its way through massive hardwood stands along the majestic Tenn-Tom River. Strategically located throughout the property are wildlife fields overflowing with deer and turkeys, purposefully flooded cypress brakes for waterfowl, and many deer stands only in need of an afternoon hunter.
The timber component of Owl Creek is mainly mixed pine/hardwood forest. There are a few scattered areas of managed loblolly pine creating habitat throughout the property. A new owner looking to add more habitat and recover some of the purchase price could easily take advantage of the timber market in the area.
I’ve been blessed in my career to work with wonderful families and some unbelievable properties. They have all been special. Owl Creek Plantation sets the bar high for all the properties before, and all the properties yet to come.
So, let me take you to Owl Creek Plantation.
