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!

Beautiful cabin right on the water

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was gorgeous, clean and cozy. The yard gave us plenty of space and being able to dock the boat at the covered slip was perfect. Definitely recommend this to anyone is need of a weekend getaway on the water.

Exactly what you are hoping for when you're looking for a cabin by a lake!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation in a few years, so had very high hopes, and this cabin did not disappoint. Me, my husband, 2 teenage daughters and our dog, all had plenty of room to kick back and relax. The cabin was extremely clean, and the AC unit worked like a dream, extremely comfortable, even during last week of July. Lake was quiet and perfect for kayaking, and enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the afternoon storms roll in. The boat dock was perfect for fishing and bait was available close by. Already looking forward to returning next year, perhaps a little earlier in the year to take advantage of some of the u pick farms in the area. Thank you Barbie, we had a great time!!

Perfect relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This was an unexpected, last minute trip we booked and are so thankful for. The cabin was spotless, stocked with everything we needed and the bed was heavenly soft. We kayaked, caught & released a ton of fish (including a giant 10+lb catfish), and simply relaxed and explored. Love that there was NO wifi- otherwise we would have missed out on all of the wildlife- families of deer, turtles, the always jumping fish. If you are like me and read every single last review- ignore the older ones. There was absolutely nothing more we could have asked for. Our dogs, Shug and Savvy were able to run and enjoy the open space (neighbors on both sides but the wooded area is a natural fence). This Atlanta family is so happy we found Buck Creek Cabin- already planning our next getaway!

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

Casey, Lanie, Shug and Savvy Cox

Owner's Response: Thank you!! I love to have others enjoy that unique place as much as I do! It is a true escape from busy hectic life - - the sunsets are amazing - the wildlife is beautiful - and plentiful! The cabin is like the perfect rustic tiny house - lakeside and wooded and private! I have wonderful awesome staff that help me tremendously - - - the cabin was built with love - that is my son's first deer on the wall - my dad and father-in-law and brother and son all helped build it with me - - many wedding proposals and anniversaries and even a few honey moons were celebrated there. Hope you come back again and again! We have a face book page too - I would love to see some fish pics! THX!! Barbie
