Bob is retired from the US Army and now retired from another 20 years working to support our deserving military. Rosie is actively pursuing her career of taking care of Bob, a basset hound, two cats, and a small garden pond with scores of goldfish and koi.
Astronomy, woodworking, computer programming, relaxing.
We are very blessed to have Huckleberry our almost 14 year old Basset Hound. He is very friendly with children, adults, and other pets. Rosie is in voluntarily servitude to two cats that roam the property and our home. Up by the house we have a small fish pond with a mixture of koi and goldfish.
Just getting started but very interested in visiting Big Mike in Homerville, Georgia.
We both grew up in Southern California but Bob's military career has moved us around the US and Bob around the world. We have lived in southwestern Georgia for almost 11 years now. We are surrounded by mostly agricultural acreage yielding peanuts, cotton, corn, pecan, sorghum, and pine. Our Terrell County property is adjacent to the sleepy town of Bronwood. Their big claim to fame is being the hometown of country music star Cole Swindell. Nearby Leesburg happens to be the hometown of another country sensation, Luke Bryan. Americus to our northeast is the sleepy town waking up. It's very apparent that the city managers are very interested in drawing in the tourist traffic. They have recently begun hosting monthly "First Friday" events offering diverse attractions. This last Christmas season Americus has been our destination for holiday socialization. At about twenty miles south, Albany, Georgia is the closest "metropolitan" area but is lacking in a cohesive organized central core to attract much tourist attention. I've heard from many sources that for whatever reasoning this is the desired outcome of the Albany leadership. There is hope though. The last few years has witnessed the arrival a few more big name eating establishments and December saw the opening of a brand new brewpub in the downtown district.
2015 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA (gasoline engine powered) flat towing a 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid. Two driver side slides. If we cannot connect to "shore power" providing at least 30 amps in very warm or hot climates or 15 amps for cooler climes, our residential refrigerator requires us to occasionally run our generator for a while to keep batteries charged. Our OEM Onan generator is considered quiet by most standards not like a construction grade unit purchased at a hardware outlet. Having a towed vehicle we cannot move in reverse without removing our vehicle in tow. Turning any coach and towed vehicle around requires a much larger distance than just about any other RV. "Three point turns" are out of the question.
Just hosted our first guest with BW. Great experience with our guests. Lots of great conversation and made new friends. The best part was Huckleberry the basset hound. Hope to meet up again in the future. Thanks for visiting with us.
We were running late, traffic, going the wrong way because the GPS sent us on a wild ride,so we didn't get ther till way after dark. Bob was gracious enough to meet us and guide us to our spot. wish we could have stayed longer, but we hope to make it again. ... Rita and Barb
The hosts are really nice with a beautiful property in a quiet spot in the country. They are very hospitable and even let me charge my car. Highly recommend!
This was a great place to stay for a visit to Plains GA and Andersonville. We stayed two nights. Our hosts were wonderful. This was our second BW stay and we are so happy we joined BW.
Such a beautiful, quiet place to stay with such gracious, friendly hosts. We will be back!
It's quiet, it's dark, it's private. Hosts are jovial and good conversationalists. And if you like to go to sleep to the music of croaking frogs, this is the place for you! We love it each time we go there!
Southern Charmed welcomed us at his driveway and showed us where to park. Really nice guy that we seemed to have a lot in common with. We felt safe and secluded though his house was just on the side of a little pond. Slept with windows open to the sound of frogs and crickets. We will definitely stay at Green Dragon Acres on our next trip to the Florida gulf coast!
Bob restored our faith in humanity. Just a lovely man who opens his gates to travelers and lets them enjoy his amazing view for an evening, free of charge. He's a Boondocker's Welcome host and he takes the "host" part very seriously. Just little piece of Heaven. ❤
I was greeted by southern charmed with a warm smile and conversation. The area where I parked was flat, grassy and near the pond.
I caught the last days of sunshine of the day sitting and listening to the sounds from the pond. A very quiet sleep.
Thank you for your hospitality.
We had such a lovely time here. Bob and Rose were such a pleasure to be around. We felt very comfortable from the minute we arrived. We had great conversations and felt like sitting around with friends. We only stayed one night. We would have loved to stay longer, but had to get on the road early. We truly hope our paths will cross again. Highly recommend!
Had an awesome stay. Friendly and welcoming hosts, very accommodating and helpful. Much enjoyed visiting and sharing stories. Loved your coach! Looking forward to your visit to NH.
This was our second stay with SoutherCharmed and we were delighted to be welcomed for our second visit to their home. The property is so spacious and lovely and we enjoyed the last rays of sunshine followed by a lovely crescent moonset. The sky was filled with so many more stars than we ever see at home. Highly recommeded.
Wonderful space. Stars, moon, very welcoming host. Coolest thing: we saw a lynx watching our RV. Thank you so much for letting us stay.
Lovely spot with a gracious host. Lots of space to settle in and throw the ball for the dog. Great conversations as well.
We had a wonderful stay at green dragon acres! Bob was an excellent host, met us when we arrived and showed us to our spacious spot! The kids had a great time seeing some deer, and riding their bikes around the yard! We would definitely come back to stay here in the future!
Had a great time solving the world's problems with Rob. Welcoming, warm, and friendly. Hope to meet up with him again somewhere, somehow.
Enjoyed my stay and getting to know the host. Beautiful property, would definitely recommend.
We had a nice stay at Green Dragon Acres. The host had us park near the road due to the wet conditions which was perfect. The next day it dried out nicely. We had a great time visiting with our host and sharing stories.
We had a very quiet peaceful night at Green Dragon Acres. We had a chance to visit and have coffee with Southern Charmed (AKA Santa) in the morning and solved some of the worlds problems...... Hope you both get out on the road soon.
This was our first experience with BW and we were nervous about it. But all these positive reviewers don’t lie. Bob was great to us well before we ever pulled up in his driveway, keeping us informed of the crazy weather going on across the south and what was expected in their area. Once we got there he met us in the rain and guided us to a great spot where we wouldn’t be bogged down. He came in and joined us for a beer or two and then gave us a tour of his Tiffin, which we were very interested in seeing. He is very easy to talk to and gave good insight into the area’s sights. We didn’t get to meet Rosie or Huckleberry as they were unavailable this weekend, but maybe next time. Would love to stay at Green Dragon Acres again.
Late arrival still met with good conversation and plans to return!
Visiting the Green Dragon Acres was far better that I ever expected.
I initially was just looking to delay my upcoming visit to Florida to avoid Hurricane Dorian.
But WOW! It turned out to be so much more as one of my favorite BW Stops of 2019.
I believe that we became real friends & I will definitely be looking forward to a return visit
&/or to see them again during our Happy Trails of upcoming travel.
"Southern Charmed" are both wonderful hosts.
They even allowed me to mow their large yard. Lol
My sincerest THANK YOU!
This was our first major trip from Jacksonville, Florida and our first boondock!. Stayed one night with my two sons and two dogs. We have a 39' Class A with toad. The kid, dogs and I will traveling the US for a year or so and having only driven the RV 4 times, including the trip to their house, I was quite anxious.
Bob was so helpful. As a newbie, I a lot of questions and he was happy to answer them. He even showed me a few things I had no idea what they were for! He even gave me some great suggestions for some upgrades on our coach to improve our experience.
We got to play ball in the field and the dogs absolutely loved being able to roam a bit. Seeing stars again was nice. We even got to hear the horses neigh. No frog chorus for us though.
Just before we left we got a tour of their rig, to see the fish pond (beautiful) and hang out with Huckleberry, Rosie and Bob chatting. We wanted to spend an extra day but our water was low.
Definitely country and off the beaten path but worth the visit! Hopefully we get to visit again!
Hope you guys have a great trip and can come join us fulltime!

There and Back Again with the Blake Clan
Great hosts, great setting. Loved the free frog concert. See you on our return trip
It is a lovely place to stay.
The hosts are very nice people.
Can be highly recommended
Beautiful spacious property, gracious conversationalist, could not be happier! Nighttime recording of frogs and crickets displayed on Kevin Doyle's Facebook page! Thoroughly enjoyed every moment!
We received a warm welcome. Lots of space, plenty of shade from high trees. Had nice talks with host, who respected our privacy also. Yes, there are frogs in the pond; they closed their session at 10 pm.
We can definitly recommend this location.
Rosie and Bob are very friendly and showed great hospitality. Thanks a lot.
Awesome and friendly hosts who made us feel at home... including our big dog Sophie. Many thanks to Huckleberry the Bassett Hound... he is such a friendly, sweet, and adorable guy who allowed Sophie to share his people and place for the evening. Enjoyed socializing and sharing stories with SouthernCharmed and even got a tour of their magnificent coach. When it got dark the night sky was beautiful. Parking was super easy for us and we were afforded the opportunity to select the spot to park... nice! We highly recommend stopping by and paying SouthernCharmed a visit... the name says it all.
My first time boondocking, it was a wonderful experience. Hosts were so kind. Hope our paths cross again. Thank you!.
So pleased to have met SouthernCharmed. No misnomer there! What wonderful hosts. Even brought me an adult beverage and spent time to "talk story". It was a lovely evening. Thank you so much!
We had a great time. Our hosts were very gracious. They will be great friends and we will keep in contact with them.
We had a wonderful time. Very peaceful setting and great host couple I such a tranquil spot
oldSarge and his lovely wife were the perfect hosts! My stay on their beautiful acreage was just what I needed!
Quiet. Easy to access. Multiple "sites" to choose from and friendly,knowledgeable hosts to make friends with!
Highly recommend this sweet space and the excellent people who provided it!
