Beautiful haven tucked away in South Georgia.

  • 5 of 5

Strange Farms was the perfect place to escape with a large group of friends and enjoy the natural beauty of South Georgia. The glamping tents are spacious and perfect for families with children, or groups of adults. The showers and facilities within the tents completely changed my view of camping! While there, we enjoyed ATV rides, shooting and volleyball. The family owners were happy to accommodate us. Be sure do a morning walk - there are beautiful views from all sides of the lake!

Perfect getaway on a gorgeous quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

This was my second second stay at Strange Farms, and both times have been perfect. The property is beyond beautiful and well maintained. The lodging areas are Glamping to the max. The beds are arguably more comfortable than my own, hot private showers, and all tents have air conditioning/heat. 5 stars all around.

Beautiful outdoor getaway. Very nice tents!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing weekend getaway. We had never ventured into the glamping tents before and were pleasantly surprised. Our family of 4 enjoyed the tent stay, the beautiful outdoors and fishing on the lake. I recommend this place!

Love it here!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the privilege of staying at Strange Farms numerous times, most recently for a ministry retreat. I've stayed in both houses on the property, and lived it up in the glamping tents, and I'm never disappointed. The property is not only beautiful, it's peaceful, and you feel it the moment you pull in. It's the perfect place to unplug from busy schedules and the distractions of every day life, and reconnect with family and friends. Watching sunsets on the floating dock, flipping pancakes on the flattop grill overlooking the lake, to shooting skeet and hitting golf balls, it truly is a place of renewal. If you have the opportunity to meet the Strange family and feel their hospitality, it becomes even more evident why the farm is a special as it is.

I highly recommend a week or weekend away at Strange Farms and look forward to my next weekend there!

A beautiful and fun gathering place

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful experience at Strange Farms! This was a beautiful and relaxing place where we could unwind at the dock and relax in the glamping tents. The kitchen on the dock was a huge plus. We had everything we needed there to prepare our meals. There was also plenty of space in the dock house for our group to gather in the evenings. We all had a lot of fun going skeet shooting and fishing out in the boats. There were quite a few friendly games of volleyball as well! Bottom line, we had a great time relaxing and connecting in this beautiful place. I highly recommend it!
