Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My husband and I just bought our first Camper. It is a 69 Serro Scotty Gaucho 15'. While it needs to be restored we did take it for a quick weekend trip. We had a great time and now look forward to many trips once the restoration is complete.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I am pretty good with a computer but not quite the "geek" I am a pretty good photographer and definitely have the gift of gab. My husband on the other hand is a technician for Coca Cola and is pretty handy with all kind of tools. He will do the majority of work on the restoration. I will provide all the input. Hopefully he will listen.

We have a 1969 15' Serro Scotty Gaucho. Although we bought him with the intentions of restoring him, he was in good enough shape to go for a quick weekend trip. Granted we probably looked like the Beverly Hillbillies when we entered the camp, but we did not care. We had a great time and "Scotty" kept us safe from any wild animals, protected us from the elements and followed us without any problems.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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👋

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.

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.

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.

Nice farm

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.
