About the property

Garden Cottage, 7 Bedrooms + 3 sleeping Loft, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 20 adults)

Bogle Farms is a 160 acre 19th century dairy farm with accommodations for multiple family units or large parties. We offer 10 King/Queen Size beds in 7 bedrooms and 3 sleeping lofts. There are 4 bedrooms in the recently renovated Garden Cottage and 3 rustic, yet modern cabins each with a bedroom and sleeping loft. Please check out our property on the internet by searching Bogle Farm! Additionally, we offer a 2900 square foot barn, large outdoor fireplace and pavilion and a manicured great lawn which is perfect for a large tent or lawn games.

Our farm is designed to be a quite, peaceful retreat and is perfect for family reunions, weddings, corporate retreats and groups attending Auburn Home Football games. We have horses, chickens, goats, donkeys and mules which children (and adults!) enjoy watching. For large groups and events we offer multiple meeting venues including a new 2900 square foot wedding and event barn, an intimate, private garden with cedar pavilion, and the Fireplace Pavilion and Great Lawn. We promise your family a 'once in a lifetime' experience in the hills of west central Georgia near Callaway Gardens, Columbus, Atlanta and LaGrange and Roosevelt's Little White House in nearby Warm Springs. The Garden Cottage cottage is a 4 BR, fully renovated home with a large living and dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The 3 cabins have small kitchen areas with refrigerators, microwaves and sinks. Each cabin has central heat and air, a bedroom with queen size bed and a sleeping loft, also with a queen size bed. The cabins are nestled under old-growth oak and cedar trees 1/4 mile from the nearest traffic, but a short walk or drive to the main cottage. In spring and summer guests can enjoy the large, stone swimming pool which has been constructed within 30 feet of the cabins' front porches.

The property is a perfect venue for weddings or corporate events desiring a location where the venues are adjacent to the housing facilities.

Though set in a rural, country setting, Bogle Farms is far from 'roughing it'! Located less than an hour from Atlanta's airport and less than 10 minutes from I-85, Bogle Farms feels like a step back in time---but with thoroughly modern amenities. The view from the barn and fireplace pavilion area provides a wonderful venue from which to view the native whitetail deer, turkeys, hawks and other wildlife. Three fishing ponds are on the property and within walking distance from the cottage and cabins, as well as miles of hiking trails.

We do not allow firearms or fireworks on the property at any time nor do we allow ATV's.

About Thomas Bogle

We are a family with three married daughters. The farm is a place created for an ever growing family to come together and create life long memories. After several years of enjoying it exclusively we decided to share it with others as well. As a result, we have had hundreds of families build the same wonderful memories that we have. A few years ago we began offering the Farm as a wedding venue and a place for corporate retreats.

Thomas Bogle purchased this estate in 2005

Why Thomas Bogle chose Greenville

We surveyed central GA for 2 years and purchased this as a farm, a rural retreat large enough for our entire family. We like this location because of the proximity to the Atlanta airport, the town of LaGrange and the nearby location of Callaway Gardens. The property is also a wonderful combination of plantation pines, open meadows and pasture and hardwood forests.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy being able to be totally secluded with just our family and friends, yet only 10 minutes from groceries, movie theater and other attractions. Please check us out online by searching for Bogle Farm! For larger groups and families there is so much more to do than at a smaller property: ponds, farm animals, miles of walking trails, fields for games, swimming pool, etc., keeps even the most active people busy. We can also accommodate large groups for weddings and other events as well offering guests the opportunity to "stay and play" while avoiding the need to shuttle between activities and housing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has stayed at the "One of a Kind Family Farm" several times. It is one of our favorite places to go. We have stayed in the main farm house as well as the cabins. The cabins are very private and very comfortable. The pool is amazing with waterfall and jacuzi. Its wonderful to just sit out and watch the stars at night. The 3 cabins are within walking distance of each other so it's great for an "extended family". We have stayed there with our son, daughter and son-in-law and grandson.(theres even a sandbox, toys, and swing for small children) I personally love "walking" the farm early in the morning. There's nothing quite like the peace and calm and beauty of the property. The main cottage is beautiful - with rocking chairs on the front porch and everything. You really couldn't ask for a more amazing place to spend a family vacation.

Country living

This was a wonderful place to stay. This is an amazing place to spend time with kids and grandkids. It kind of forced the preteens to disconnect from their video games,iPads, etc and enjoy the great outdoors. ( too bad some of the adults could not seem to disconnect). Anyways property is exactly as described in terms of rooms and cabins. The property itself is stunning. We were all able to eat as a family every night inthe big barn. We grilled out every night and just made fixings to go along with the meats. The lake had plenty of fishing. The volleyball court was enjoyable family fun. I brought a lot of games for kids to play during day and they loved the huge pool. We also brought games for adults at night but there was plenty there also. The only critique I could offer is that the cabins could use some more utensils and basic cooking utensils but that can be remedied easily. There is plenty of dishes and drink ware. The big house is a wonderful place to gather for family breakfast and late night games. I would highly recommend and hope to book again in future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your generous comments and so pleased your stay at the farm was wonderful. We love hearing feedback--especially how we can improve. Sounds like a quick run to Wal Mart would make the kitchen areas even more useful. We hope to see you back at the Farm soon! The Bogle Family

Beautiful area, well kept, nice appointments.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely pool, nice buildings and a good location. Only problem was the distance from the cottage to the 3 cabins and pool. Also, when we did get together for a meal, there was only the one table by the pool. Loved the rocking chairs on the porches of all the buildings and the helpfulness of Thom Bogle and his wife. We had a great family time and celebration of my 90th birthday. Thank you

Wow! What a great place for large family!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! Really,,,Better than we ever expected. We had us (we're 70) 5 kids w/spouses and 12 grandkids. No complaints from anyone! Hospitality second-to-none. The farm was beautiful, the accommodations were perfect, the pool was wonderful, and the pavilion and area next to it was just right for eating, and then for family kickball. We've already booked for next summer. We HIGHLY recommend Bogle Farm. So glad we came. Thanks again to Thom and Gail. You hit it out of the park.

Excellent place for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to get the kids away from cell phones, and allow them opportunities to play with each other, feed animals, fish, and sit by the fire to tell stories.

This place is incredibly special!

  • 5 of 5

I've never been to a more idyllic place with the people I love. The cabins and the cottage are so much roomier and nicer than any hotel room you're ever going to rent in this area. Meanwhile the pool, grills, and outdoor fireplace are simply perfect for a cookout ending in Smores consumption! If I had a daughter getting married I would beg her to have the reception on this magical property. The lighted , squared off area in front of the fireplace/band platform looks like something out of a movie wedding. The Bogels are fantastic people and have put their hearts and souls into this place. You get a palpable sense of it when you're there. Gather some families and find a way to book this place together. You'll have some great memories if you do. I promise!
