About CJ Farmer, Owner/Manager

A resident of Georgia since 1980, my husband and I built this facility in 2005 to expand my horse business and develop a hunting preserve. The cabin was originally put on the master plan and constructed to house equestrian guests visiting the ranch to attend a clinic or a riding vacation. For a better return on the investment, I opened the cabin to non-equestrian visitors.

CJ Farmer, Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2005

Why CJ Farmer, Owner/Manager chose Gainesville

I performed volunteer work on a trail system partially located in Banks County for the US Forest Service and could not help but notice how scenic the area was. The rural atmosphere, coupled with a very low crime rate, no traffic issues, yet close to shopping and other necessities made it an appealing choice for personal and business reasons.

What makes this cabin unique

The many noisy shoals and scenic beauty of the river/creek was one of the most appealing features of the property. Once the center of the property was cleared for pasture and construction of the equestrian center, it revealed a beautiful 180 degree ridge view with stunning sunsets. Being able to enjoy the mountainous terrain, the appearance of being in the middle of nowhere, and yet only 10 minutes away 'modern civilization' via three four-lane highways is a huge plus.

Serene Cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Even though we had an ice storm the days we were there, we still were amazed at the beauty and tranquility of the cabin. I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants to get away and relax! A pond in the front, a stream in the back, and a screened in hot tub on the deck! What more could you ask?!

Owner's Response: It is a blessing to have guests that understand I cannot control disasters that are simply an act of God. They were such good sports about it I refunded their last night's fee so they could go get a motel room, which was not easy to find in an area with 90% power outages.

Cabin is a nice place for the Price and location.

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I for the most part enjoyed our stay at the Cabin. It was clean and nice and quiet. The Cabin was laid out very well with plenty of space. We walked around the area and could see lots of deer tracks on the trails.

We would have enjoyed it more but the gas fireplace had no gas. We reported it to CJ and Tim on Saturday but they did not get us any gas until Wednesday night – so we only had 2 nights with a fireplace, 7 would have been better. We also had to give CJ a sixty dollar deposit for a two dollar key so we could lock up when we went out. We did get the money back but $60 dollars (really CJ?) We also did not have any wi-fi even though it was advertised to have Wi-fi on the premises. (1500 feet away from the cabin is not on the premises CJ.) I tried on the porch in 40 degree weather and still no reception. The oven had not been cleaned in weeks – good thing my wife had all the meals prepared. I would stay here again if it had Wi-fi in the Cabin and not in CJ's house. I had to drive to Panera Bread to use the Internet. It was important to stay in touch with my Company.

Owner's Response: The cabin listing plainly states WiFi is not available inside the cabin. WiFi "on the premises" relates to the whole property the cabin sits on, never defined in linear feet. Not all devices and cell phones have good reception everywhere. The cabin is represented as a country retreat, not a conference center. Yes, it took a few days to get the LP tank refilled and replaced, but this guest said it was no big hurry and accepted my apology for any inconvenience. Unfortunately it has been impossible to find an LP gauge for a tank that large and get an accurate reading on the gas level, making it difficult to keep up with. With respect to the cabin key, if a guest loses that key, the trip fee for a locksmith is $75 to change the key locks, so I do not feel that a $60 deposit refunded prior to checkout is out of line. Replacing the $2 key is not the solution - for the security of future guests I do not want a working key to that cabin floating around somewhere. I personally take complete blame for the mess the previous guest left in the oven. I apologized and offered to have my service come over to clean it immediately, but the guest said it was not necessary. My cleaning service was chastised for the oversight - in the rush to clean up after one guest a few hours before the next guest arrived it was overlooked, but the assessment that it had not been cleaned in weeks is just not true, some guests just make bigger messes than others. We strive to keep this cabin clean and in good working order, and always make every effort to take care of any unforeseen problems as quickly as possible.

Beautiful comfortable cabin at GRR!

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed staying in the cabin at Grove River Ranch. Comfortable beds and living room furniture, large bathrooms with plenty of clean towels. We enjoyed the view of the river from the porches too. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Great place!

Owner's Response: I wish this guest could have stayed longer too! She had never experienced a girls's getaway weekend, and now that she knows how much fun there is to be had, hopefully she will attend many more!

Incredible vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated cabin with top of the line conveniences. The cabin is nestled in the woods overlooking the pond and beautiful rolling pastures. We had a lovely girls weekend with our horses. CJ had everything ready for us, and was extremely friendly. It was a dream vacation come true! Plan on going back in April to enjoy the woods in the spring.

Owner's Response: We love it when the "city folk" can imagine how pretty the scenery around the cabin will look draped in spring blooms and look forward to a return visit to see it.

We came up and rented the cabin and brought my horse for my birthday weekend. It was a wonderful time and went by too fast. The cabin is so cute and cozy and we loved it. Enjoyed the hot tub .We loved the scenery around us and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Some people think they have to travel a great distance to experience a relaxing getaway. This savvy guest, who lives just a few miles away, knows that is not true!
