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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
