Overview

About the property

Beautiful Lakefront Retreat With One Of Lake Sinclair's Best Views!

Famous Author's Lakefront Getaway! With one of Lake Sinclair's best views, the historic Wildwood Flower Retreat is perfect for couples, families, and that special girl's or guy's weekend away. The Retreat is completely furnished and decorated in a sportsman's theme of wildlife prints, southern college football, golf and fishing motifs. Sit in the hot tub, while watching the waves hit the lake wall. Or enjoy the fire pit and flat screen TV on the dock!

Home of famed author of 'Go West Young Man and Don't Come Back,' the Wildwood Flower is one of the first homes on Lake Sinclair.

The Wildwood Flower was built in 1955 by the former 'boss hog'-type mayor of Milledgeville, Walter B. Williams Jr. who 'ruled' Milledgeville, GA from the 50's through the 70's. This home served as the back-drop for many of Walter's political meetings and lavish lakefront parties - complete with live bands that won many 'votes' for the mayor! The house has only had two owners ... The Williams Family and the current owner, Gary Spillers who has owned the property for the last 14 years.

The Wildwood Flower's pavilion is big enough for a variety of waterfront activities and entertainment. Private fishing areas are also available to guests.

The beautiful morning sunrise, the gorgeous panoramic lake views and a campground-feel make this renovated sports retreat irresistible!

About Gary Spillers

Gary currently splits his time between Atlanta and Milledgeville in pursuit of commercial/investment real estate opportunities. In his spare time, he enjoys writing 'mostly true' tales about himself and his interesting array of suspect friends and the 'messes' they used to get into as told about in 'Go West Young Man, But Don't Come Back!' by Gary Spillers (2011), available on Amazon. A native of Milledgeville, Gary starred in all sports while attending Baldwin High School and took his love of football to Troy University, where he became an All-Conference linebacker and was voted team captain his senior year. After graduating with a degree in marketing and business administration in 1970, Gary launched what became a 34-year real estate career.

Gary Spillers purchased this house in 1999

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever! The cabin, dock, hot tub, and all of the other amenities were the perfect setting for our extended family! We had a combination of young grand kids as well as some "Older" folks in our family and really appreciated the comforts of the cabin as well as easy access to our boat and fishing from the dock and shore. We couldn't have asked for more in a vacation home!

Fabulous waterfront location, comfortable amenities and bedrooms, a repeat location for sure

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful weekend. A few items need to be fixed. Hot tub overheated 3 times and I think thermostat must be the culprit?? Someone had used grill and it was not usable for our small group. Overall, GREAT location and perfect for R & R getaway.

It was relaxing and beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the host was extremely hospitable. The view is beautiful with good access to the lake. The hot tub was a main attraction we were able to watch as sun rise in the lake and relax as the sun set in the hot tub.
