We have 5 acres with a two story barn and a huge white house (looks like a church lol). We have room! Cows on one side, people on the other. Nice country setting. There is a gravel driveway. There is a fire pit and a picnic table behind the barn. It is rolling hills. We do have goats, alpaca and a miniature donkey in the field.

Our dog runs freely on our property and occasionally her friends come over to visit.

Suggested Local Attractions

Unfortunately there is not a lot around here but farms and countryside. We are close to Macintosh Reserve and only bout 10 miles from an access ramp to the Chattahoochee River. The river is closer but, to access you would need to go to Macintosh Reserve (there is a fee) which is 6 miles away or go to the next town that is 10 miles away.

Night stop over

Nice place to land for a night. Enjoyed the goats & donkey. Plenty of space on the side of the barn. Nice hosts, communicated well. If walking neighborhood, be aware there are some loose dogs.

Friendly host, peaceful location.

I stayed at this location for a night with my wife and 2 kids. We were greeted by the friendly hosts upon arrival. My kids enjoyed petting and feeding the goats. And my wife and I got to relax in a peaceful location. Couldn't ask for more.


June 2021

Kind and gracious

They showed us the goats and donkey and let our girls feed them. They loved it!


May 2021

Idealic spot to stay

Mary was very nice and met us as we pulled up. She gave us instructions that made finding her easy. I'm sorry we didn't get to visit more, but she was fighting a cold so she kept her distance. Our stay was lovely! It was peaceful and quite. We enjoyed the goats and donkey and Face Timed our grandkids who got a real kick out of them. We highly recommend them as hosts. Hope you feel better soon Mary!


April 2021


We had a quiet, peaceful overnight! Loved being entertained by the goats!


March 2021

Great spot for a big rig!

Great stay at this location, quiet and surrounded by farm animals. 30amp hookup was right there on the gravel driveway, level site. Met with the host and had a short but great chat before setting up. The area can be windy but we still slept great. Good at&t cell signal. We had no problem swinging our 35ft fifth wheel in. We would stay here again if passing through!


December 2020

Nice farm

My son had a great time seeing all the animals. So nice to have 30A hookup.

If they have farms like this in Heaven...

If they have farms like this in Heaven, I wanna go! My only contact with Mary was by phone. Which was very understandable. Covid-19. Mary is a very gracious host. But I did get to talk to her husband, John, at "The Barn"/work shop/storage. He was making a"prototype" standing fire pit. I believe he said it was his daughters. Very well made. John is very talented. John comes from Pennsylvania, "coal cracker country", my first time hearing that term. I am familiar with "Florida cracker". BTW, Mary is from Florida, but I'm not saying that she is a "cracker"! Chickens, goat's and donkey's! The goats and donkey's will love you if you bring Macintosh apples! I apologise to the chickens, but will make up for it on my next visit. Cracked corn will be coming with me, along with 6lbs of Macintosh apples. "The Farm" must be a lot like heaven (yes, referring to Hank Williams Jr's song, "If Heaven Ain't a lot like Texas"). If you go. Please respect "The Farm". I shall return.

Beautiful farm

We had a wonderful experience for our first time using boon Dockers welcome. The hosts were very nice & friendly. We loved the goats & chickens! We enjoyed an amazing sunset! We would highly recommend this spot!


July 2020

Lovely quiet country location!

Beautiful country farm . . . Loved seeing the animals and country buildings. . . 30amp power as well! Wonderful!


June 2020

Nice, flat spot surrounded by Nature's beauty

The marylesh hosts are extremely pleasant to work within their boondocking pad is excellent. Electric power, good privacy, and a splendid view over pastures with goats and donkeys, including 2 charming baby goats Highly recommended!


June 2020

Peaceful Country Setting

Thank you so much for letting us stay on your property! Best nights sleep and we loved seeing and hearing the animals-plus we got to see an amazing sunset last night! Stay healthy and take care!


May 2020


This was our very first boondockers experience other than at friends and families houses. We came during the Covid 19 pandemic. Marylesh was delightful, gave us excellent directions as far as where to park etc. and informed us that she is the caregiver to her elderly mother so we were sure to keep our social distancing in mind. The “farm” is very quiet. Even the chickens, rooster and donkeys didn’t wake us up in the morning. Overall, we had an excellent stay and experience!


May 2020

A Peaceful Place

This was our 1st Boondockers Welcome stay. MaryLesh was so helpful and responsive to our questions. Her description was spot on of the location. The lot was level. The surroundings were so pleasant. We will definitely ask to return if in the area!


March 2020

Peaceful Farm and Warm Hospitality

Mary and John were fantastic hosts! Very peaceful farm setting with lots of animals—we especially loved the baby goats! Only stayed 1 night, but would have loved more time here! Will definitely stop again if we are in the area! Thanks for a fantastic stay!


March 2020

Wonderful hosts

Wonderful kind hosts beautiful land green rolling hills very peaceful


March 2020

Escape to the Country

Mary Lesh provided us with a great little spot to park our 5th wheel. Unfortunately, during our 5 day stay, it rained non-stop...every day and every night, so we rarely left the trailer!
Sadly, we really didn't have any opportunities to chat with our host! Maybe there will be a next time so we can remedy that!


February 2020

Great stay

Hosts were fantastic, very welcoming, friendly and hospitable. Weather was very bad for part of our stay and they offered us to come in the house if we needed. Turns out we were on the lee side of the barn so we were protected from the wind. Definitely recommend this boondocking location.


January 2020

Wonderful Stay

We had a great time staying at Mary Lesh's Farm. This was our first BW experience and it was great. The farm is a wonderful place to just relax... which is just what we did. Carrollton has a great walking trail (17 mi) around the town that is easy to access... and all the necessary shopping you might need.

Mary is an easy person to talk to, but we only spent a short time with her. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. The goats, donkeys, chickens and dog are all friendly! Thanks for a great stay Mary!


January 2020


This was our first BW stay, and we picked well! We were met upon arrival and our host was very welcoming and friendly. She offered electric and water, but we didn't need it for such a short visit. Would definitely stop by again. Such a beautiful area.


December 2019

Great place to spend the night

Weather keep us from visting much . They were helpful and kind. Loved all the animals.

Thanks for hosting


December 2019

Gracious host

I enjoyed my stay at marylesh place
It was beautiful country living.
My German Shepherd puppy was fascinated with the farm animals.
Would love to come back another year.
My hosts was very friendly.


November 2019

Another amazing visit!

We stayed for a second time and enjoyed it so much!

The kids love the farm animals, and we all had so much fun helping feed and corral the chickens!

Thanks so much for opening your property to us for a second time!!


November 2019

Idyllic farm boondocking site

I spent a night here and what a magical place it is! Plenty of room for my 34 foot RV to maneuver, and a very hospitable greeting from my Host. And after a long day of travel it was refreshing to go and visit the farm animals. I would welcome the chance to stay here again as it's a welcoming, spacious and refreshing place!


October 2019

Too quick to enjoy. Nice country setting

You might hear dogs, coyotes, or chickens. But that beats sirens, trucks, or honking horns any day. Sweet hosts with love for their country life. Unfortunately we arrived after dark but the host was nice enough to come out and guide us by flashlight. A worry free spot and that always helps make a good nights sleep.


October 2019

Very nice place.

We really enjoyed our time here. We may stop here again on way north in the spring.


October 2019

Wonderful experience!

We really enjoyed our stay - the kids loved visiting with the animals (such a sweet pup, too!), and the location was easy to access/park with our 35' TT.

Easy hour drive into Atlanta - I had a conference for work and we visited the World of Coca-Cola (fun!).

Hosts were kind and generous - I wish I personally had more time to chat... hopefully we'll be back for a return visit in the near future!

Thanks so much!!!


September 2019

Lovely and Peaceful

Lovely and peaceful spot to spend a night or two. Our hosts were both so friendly and accommodating. Maybe next time we could stay a few nights and explore a little more. Thank you for a peaceful stay.


September 2019

Wonderful stay on a darling farm

Thank you Mary & John for a lovely stay. My kids loved petting the alpacas, chickens, donkeys & goats! We appreciated the power & water.


September 2019

Excellent hosts

My stay with Mary was perfect. I only had a brief chat with them on the evening I arrived, they were ever so helpful and friendly. Location was extremely quiet, which was very much appreciated.


April 2019

A Perfect Story!

Mary was simply an amazing host! I was not able to get in until later and she was kind to assist me when I finally arrived. I enjoyed her story of their property and meeting her animals. (The rooster liked meeting me a little less though!)

They have a beautiful property and story and I would recommend their hospitality all day long. Thank you, Mary! Was a pleasure.


April 2019

Love This Farm!

We needed a last-minute stay to intercept a FedEx overnight at our daughter’s nearby and our host was able to accommodate us. Such a peaceful location with sounds of animals, birds and nature surrounding us. We hope to. stay another time when in the area again. Thank you!


March 2019

Nice, new house

All the little goats
and all the chickadees
sang songs of welcome
for Larry & Wendy!

Had a peaceful, quiet night!!!


March 2019

Great Hosts!

The hosts are great, the location is gorgeous, overall an amazing experience. Thank you so much!


March 2019

A lovely, quiet farm stay!

All the animals! Roosters for wake up. Dogs for play. Alpacas and adonkey for variety! On a more serious note, simply a great place for a peaceful stay with good folk!


March 2019

Lovely, Quiet Stay

This was a delightful stay. The hosts were warm and welcoming, we enjoyed peace and quiet with the gentle sounds of their farm. We hope to visit again some day.


March 2019

Slumber party

John and Mary are so fun. Mary invited me into their house and we visited till 1:00am while tornado warnings fired off all around us. Just a lot of wind and heavy rain at their place but I felt so much safer in the house than rocking and rolling in my RV 🌸😂🌸
So long to a great couple👋


February 2019

Thanks for the spot.

John and Mary are great. I laughed so hard listening to their storyes. Then when I got sick with the flue they told me to stay where I was as long as I needed to. They offered to get me anything I need. What
Great hosts❗️ Their home and property is so quiet and rural. Very nice.


February 2019

Peaceful Farm

We had a peaceful night on the farm.
When we arrived our host's met us right away. Because of recent rains we stayed parked on the gravel driveway which was perfect. We were able to just pull out the next morning. Our host allowed 2 of our kids to feed her animals.
We didn't get to see them before we left since they left for work before we woke but we didn't have any issues.
Would absolutely stay here again if we find ourselves in GA again.
Thanks again for a night, quiet night.


January 2019

Warm Rest

Great stay. We were welcomed when we arrived one day early as I messed up the date request. Our girls got to feed the animals and we had a relaxing time in colder weather.


January 2019

Nice farm

Just spent one night passing through. Hosts were full of hospitality and the spot very private. Beautiful rural Georgia countryside.


January 2019

Quiet, comfortable setting with nice hosts.

The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The setting was peaceful and quiet. It is a good place to overnight and avoid Atlanta traffic. We will definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises.


November 2018

Fantastic Family to Meet!

This host was extremely accommodating and really remarkable to meet. They have gorgeous property with plenty of space and beautiful animals to gaze at (they let us feed them and we loved the experience). Wish we had more time to visit with them, because they are really good people.


October 2018

A lovely farm and friendly hosts!

So nice to have found this host within about an hour of Atlanta. They were super friendly and accomodating. Enjoyed visiting and feeding the farm animals too. Grateful for the hospitality and sharing the farm experience with us. Will definitely come back to visit next time we are in the area.


May 2018

Down on the farm. Cool people and animals.

Thank you for such a nice warm welcoming. Your farm is very cool. Sorry we didn't get to see you before we left , your hospitality was awesome. Please add us to your places to visit.


May 2018

Lovely People, Lovely Farm

We had the pleasure of staying with John and Mary for a few nights, and couldn't have had a better time. When we arrived, we were offered water and electric, dinner, and visited with all the farm animals.They are building a beautiful home by hand, and we got the grand tour. This property is super peaceful, and easy to reach from the highway.
Hope to come back again!


April 2018

Great place and awesome couple!

Super welcoming and the location/ animals were just an added bonus! Our hosts went out of their way to show us the land and animals and we had a wonderful time with them our last night around a fire. Hope to see them again! Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your piece of paradise!


April 2018


What a beautiful and serene location. Close to many great state parks to explore. Mary and John are great hosts, sharing stories and showing us his project of building his house. Great job and huge undertaking. We enjoyed the goats. Alpacas, donkeys, chickens, cats and playing fetch with the dog. A little piece of heaven and only 50 miles from Atlanta. Thank you for your hospitality. Virginia and Bob


January 2018

Quiet farm setting

We like staying with Mary & John at their farm setting place. All the animals remind us of our rural upbringing, esp. the newborn goat! Hope to see you again.


January 2017


We offer a recommendation for Marylesh in Carrollton. They offered a quiet, comfortable location that allowed us to avoid Atlanta. Alpacas, goats, dogs, cats, etc provided a nice, farm-like atmosphere. And she is very nice. We didn't get to meet him but we'll try to return another time for sure.
