About Barbie Hartsfield

Barbie (owner) designed the cabin after finding the lot during a week-end trip to the area and her and her family - built the cabin - - The mounted deer head on the wall is her son's first - - and he was a young teenager at the time and helped build the cabin - as well as his father and both of his grandfathers, one came down all the way from Wisconsin to help! Barbie now lives in the Chicago area. She lived in Tallahassee Florida where she raised her children - - and traveled to Lake Eufuala and fell in love with the area! - - just 2 hours from Tallahassee and 3 from Atlanta.

Barbie Hartsfield purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Barbie Hartsfield chose Fort Gaines

Owner Barbie, discovered Lake Eufaula (also called George F. Walter lake) on a week-end trip to celebrate a birthday and fell in love with the clear water and sandy beaches and tall Georgia pine trees and the surrounding Alabama Hills - the lake is Ideal for swimming, boating and fishing and has many fishing tournaments and events held at the George T. Bagby State Park which is where she stayed for their week-end and later purchased the Buck Creek Cabin lake lot just 3 miles north of that State Park. Only 2 hours from Tallahassee and 3 from Atlanta!

What makes this cabin unique

She loves to fish from the dock while watching the sunset! The dock is covered and many times she and her friends enjoyed a summer rain shower right on the dock! We float on rafts right off the dock and enjoy music from the ipod player that is provided. This covered dock has a covered boat slip and large enough for the whole family to enjoy fishing - Night fishing is alot of fun too! My nephew loves the dock so much he even slept several nights on it! It is a rejuvenating - relaxing - escape "off grid" from busy stressful living - hear the wind in the pines - the birds of all kinds - warm sun in the day and cozy fire at night that keeps brisk air away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great time as usual! Enjoyed fishing from the dock - caught over 30 fish! Enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the dock - - and we will return again next year! We love Buck Creek Cabin!

Relaxing weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and has a nice weekend getaway on the lake. Really enjoyed the fire pit on the backporch overlooking the lake. Don't plan on cooking much since there is no stove. Also, while it says it sleeps four, two is best. Look forward to staying there again.

Great cabin and beautiful lake!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very cute and had everything we needed. The view of the lake was great from the porch, we really enjoyed the fire pit since it was chilly at night! We caught a few fish from the dock and our dog really enjoyed running around in the yard! I would definitely recommend this cabin, it was very quaint and relaxing! My only complaint would be that the floor was dirty and appeared to not have been swept in a while but everything else was clean and well kept!

Beautiful, relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect relaxing getaway the family needed to detach from their always in hand electronics! We fished, read, made Smores, and watched movies. The cabin was cozy and clean and the kids loved the loft sleeping area. We would definitely visit again!

I loved it.

  • 4 of 5

I personally loved the place but I'm a man, my wife and 3 year old not so much cause isnt nothing to do for a 3 year old around. But now that she has walked away. It was what I wanted for our family. To get us away from Atlanta, away from well people. That's what peace and quiet is all about right. The fishing was great. I caught a almost 9 pound bass right off the dock. And that's saying something since I had my bass boat docked and went all around that lake. It was really shallow in September so if you have anything bigger than a bass boat beware in this month 2 to 3.7 ft. And the grass on that lake is alot in that area of dock. Owner provided cords to reach to dock since the power is down on it. I hooked up my boat on bank chargers no issue and hooked a led light up.so can see at night fishing. Water pressure wasn't that great, but in the 8 cabins I've stayed in not one had awesome pressure. Other than that and having to leave early due to this killer huricane running us up north early, I loved the lil cabin. I'll be back with my fishing team very soon.

Kind of shabby

  • 2 of 5

I was glad we read the reviews and saw that we needed to bring cleaning supplies. While the cabin was neat, it was not really clean. We brought our own pillows and went to the store and bought a blanket. The ones there were kind of worn and grungy. We were hoping for a lakeside cabin experience and got a fish camp instead.
