I have visited Strange Farm twice and can’t wait to get back! It is such a FUN and PEACEFUL place. I loved the lake, going for runs, volleyball, **GLAMPING** and more!!! The owners are the kindest people I have ever met. The dock is a perfect place to hang out, play games, cook great food and more! Paddle boards – a beach – boats and more! A beautiful place for WEDDINGS and a perfect place for CONCERTS! Sunset to Sunrise – the farm is breathtaking.

Awesome Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly special place. I've been here several times and I always feel refreshed and restored after a few days. So many different things to do and one of the few places where you have great amenities but truly feel like you get away from it all.

I do believe that this was my favorite getaway in years. Glamping is the way to go. I would describe it as a cabin with cloth walls. When I heard I was staying in a tent I was apprehensive. Camping is not my kind of thing. The beds were so comfy and there was heated blankets in addition to heating and air conditioning. The bathroom was amazing. Upscale everything. They made sure we had all the luxuries that a fine hotel would have, even chocolate mints on our pillows. The view of the lake at sunrise and sunset was just awe inspiring! I felt so relaxed and close to nature. They have so many things available to keep you entertained. Ping pong, paddle boards, volleyball and even a putting green. I just enjoyed laying in a pod tent right by the water. I reccomend this place for anyone wanting to get together with a group and be away from it all. With free wifi and cell service! I look foreword to my next stay!!!!

Excellent Environment and Facilities for a Conference or Corporate Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I led a small corporate leadership retreat for executives from across the country at Strange Farms. The facilities are top notch! The staff is extremely friendly and always a step ahead of whatever we needed for a successful experience. We had a fun, comfortable, meaningful and affordable retreat due in large part to our partners at Strange Farms! Sincere thanks to Jed and the entire Strange Farm staff!

What a great place to escape with friends and family...

  • 5 of 5

I had the most outstanding time staying at Strange Farms. I took a group of friends and we rented one of the glamping tents for the weekend. It was a great getaway and not too far from Atlanta (our hometown). I had never done "glamping" before, but it was intriguing - a great way to be outdoors, in nature, while enjoying the comfort of air conditioning and heating (at night especially!!). The cabin stayed very warm (and the beds were INCREDIBLY comfortable...that was a surprise to me). The bathroom was fully stocked, very clean place, and the property is just special. If you get a chance to see Mr. and Mrs. Strange while on-site, you'll be in for a real privilege.

We did get the chance to take part in the skeet shooting as well, which was a big plus for the guys that came with me, and we spent quite a bit of time playing volleyball and exploring the grounds. Great place to relax, cook out at the dock, and disconnect (Although, I have to admit, I snuck to the floating dock to utilize the WiFi here, and a catch a little bit of the college football playoffs here and there!) Oh, and Jed and Faith were wonderful to work with. Very flexible and accommodating. Can't recommend it enough!

A beautiful, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a weekend at the farm with a group of people on a retreat through New Heights Ministries and I can not say enough good things about this place. First off, it is such a beautiful, peaceful place I immediately felt relaxed and that I could breathe a little deeper then when I am in the city. Watching the sun come up and then set out at the lake is a special thing. Secondly, I loved the posh accommodations in the glamping tent. The bed was comfortable, I had a place to charge my phone at night and I really appreciated the full bathroom with the hot shower. I could camp for a long time like this! Everyone at our event loved being able to relax, connect and have fun with each other whether sitting out on the dock, playing volleyball, or skeet shooting. The hospitality of Jed and his family are clearly on display and it seems every detail has been thought through to make your stay here a memorable one. You will be glad you chose to stay here, and may not even want to leave.
