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!

We had an awesome time! The cabin was exactly as we expected!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights and had a great time! The cabin was clean, well equipped with the items we needed! If you are looking for a place to disconnect from the city life, this is the place. I don’t think I would have 6 people stay, unless 2 are kids! Four adults at most! There was just the two of us and we loved it! Fishing was good, we caught every day! Bugs can be bad, so be prepared for that at dusk!! Deer came right up on the large back porch! If you forget anything there are small local stores that have most of what you would need! Books, puzzles, board games and movies are provided if you have a rainy day! I hope you have as good of a time as we did! Enjoy!

It's our favorite place to be!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd, and surely not last, trip to Buck Creek. We absolutely love spending our quick vacations here! It's always a beautiful view, it's always comfortable, and it's always hard to leave! Should you need it, contact with Mrs. Hartsfield is easy and pleasant. She's a very gracious host. We're already checking the calendar for our next stay!
