Looking forward to your stay
Welcome: We look forward to your stay at Mountain Laurel Farm. It's such a pleasure to be able to share the farm where I grew up with those who also find it as magical as I do! The historic turn of the century Farmhouse was built in 1914, Former Caretaker house (Cottage) was built in the 1940s and Red Barn which is now events venue was built in the 1880's red barn. It was previously a Polled Hereford Cattle Farm and originally 375 acres. The farm is nestled on only 22 acres now between the scenic views of horse range mountain and the Chattahoochee National Forest. See the farm's history.
