Greenville Estate Rental Photos and Description

Garden Cottage, 7 Bedrooms + 3 sleeping Loft, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 20 adults)

Bogle Farms is a 135 acre 19th century dairy farm with accommodations for multiple family units or large parties. We offer 10 King/Queen Size beds in 7 bedrooms and 3 sleeping lofts. There are 4 bedrooms in the recently renovated Garden Cottage and 3 rustic, yet modern cabins each with a bedroom and sleeping loft. Additionally, we offer a 2900 square foot barn, large outdoor fireplace and pavilion and a manicured great lawn which is perfect for a large tent or lawn games.

Our farm is designed to be a quite, peaceful retreat and is perfect for family reunions, weddings, corporate retreats and groups attending Auburn Home Football games. We have horses, chickens, goats, donkeys and mules which children (and adults!) enjoy watching. For large groups and events we offer multiple meeting venues including a new 2900 square foot wedding and event barn, an intimate, private garden with cedar pavilion, and the Fireplace Pavilion and Great Lawn. We promise your family a 'once in a lifetime' experience in the hills of west central Georgia near Callaway Gardens, Columbus, Atlanta and LaGrange and Roosevelt's Little White House in nearby Warm Springs. The Garden Cottage cottage is a 4 BR, fully renovated home with a large living and dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The 3 cabins have small kitchen areas with refrigerators, microwaves and sinks. Each cabin has central heat and air, a bedroom with queen size bed and a sleeping loft, also with a queen size bed. The cabins are nestled under old-growth oak and cedar trees 1/4 mile from the nearest traffic, but a short walk or drive to the main cottage. In spring and summer guests can enjoy the large, stone swimming pool which has been constructed within 30 feet of the cabins' front porches.

The property is a perfect venue for weddings or corporate events desiring a location where the venues are adjacent to the housing facilities.

Though set in a rural, country setting, Bogle Farms is far from 'roughing it'! Located less than an hour from Atlanta's airport and less than 10 minutes from I-85, Bogle Farms feels like a step back in time---but with thoroughly modern amenities. The view from the barn and fireplace pavilion area provides a wonderful venue from which to view the native whitetail deer, turkeys, hawks and other wildlife. Three fishing ponds are on the property and within walking distance from the cottage and cabins, as well as miles of hiking trails.

We do not allow firearms or fireworks on the property at any time nor do we allow ATV's.

About Thomas Bogle

We are a family with three married daughters. The farm is a place created for an ever growing family to come together and create life long memories. After several years of enjoying it exclusively we decided to share it with others as well. As a result, we have had hundreds of families build the same wonderful memories that we have. A few years ago we began offering the Farm as a wedding venue and a place for corporate retreats.

Thomas Bogle purchased this estate in 2005

Why Thomas Bogle chose South Rivers Area

We surveyed central GA for 2 years and purchased this as a farm, a rural retreat large enough for our entire family. We like this location because of the proximity to the Atlanta airport, the town of LaGrange and the nearby location of Callaway Gardens. The property is also a wonderful combination of plantation pines, open meadows and pasture and hardwood forests.

What makes this estate unique

We enjoy being able to be totally secluded with just our family and friends, yet only 10 minutes from groceries, movie theater and other attractions. For larger groups and families there is so much more to do than at a smaller property: ponds, farm animals, miles of walking trails, fields for games, swimming pool, etc., keeps even the most active people busy. We can also accommodate large groups for weddings and other events as well offering guests the opportunity to "stay and play" while avoiding the need to shuttle between activities and housing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has stayed at the "One of a Kind Family Farm" several times. It is one of our favorite places to go. We have stayed in the main farm house as well as the cabins. The cabins are very private and very comfortable. The pool is amazing with waterfall and jacuzi. Its wonderful to just sit out and watch the stars at night. The 3 cabins are within walking distance of each other so it's great for an "extended family". We have stayed there with our son, daughter and son-in-law and grandson.(theres even a sandbox, toys, and swing for small children) I personally love "walking" the farm early in the morning. There's nothing quite like the peace and calm and beauty of the property. The main cottage is beautiful - with rocking chairs on the front porch and everything. You really couldn't ask for a more amazing place to spend a family vacation.

Our wedding could not have been more perfect thanks to the Bogle family!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot rate Bogle Farms highly enough. We were looking for a place where our friends and family could come and go for a full weekend and Bogle Farms was completely perfect! We had over 200 guests and they all came and went at different times. With the way the farm is set up and with the Bogle family's generous hospitality, we were able to spend precious quality time with so many loved ones! Thom and his daughter Britney are complete pros at helping everything run smoothly. Britney is a professional wedding planner and she was due with her first baby right around the time of the wedding. We knew we would have a substitute planner the day of, and Britney was having phone calls with all of us leading right up to the birth of her son. She even checked in the day of and everything was running perfectly thanks to her exquisite organizational skills. Thom was also very available and always around to make sure I had water to drink and a chair nearby if I needed it during the ceremony (it was a very hot day). I cannot sing their praises enough - the combo of the beautiful location, thoughtfully laid out ceremony site, and incredible hospitality was just perfect. After the wedding, many of our guests told us our wedding was one of the best they'd ever been to!

GET MARRIED HERE! (or come for the weekend, or a family reunion, or just to hang out.)

  • 5 of 5

When my (then) fiance and (now) husband (!!!) and I began looking for venues we knew we wanted 2 things: 1) a place where getting from the ceremony to the reception required zero additional travel, and 2) a space where our wedding party could stay for the duration of the weekend- so we could really enjoy the love and laughter of the people who are important to us. We toured Bogle Farms and were instantly enamored. We had already set our sights on a fall wedding, but the farm is beautiful year round! We knew when we decided on Bogle Farms, that our wedding that it would be a great day-- but the wedding day we had exceeded all expectations! We had the most beautiful weather, and a super moon (!!) that added to the already incredible atmosphere provided by Bogle Farms. It doesn't hurt that Thom, the owner of Bogle Farms, is one of the friendliest gentlemen you'll ever meet! We cherish our newfound friendship with Thom greatly and are so thankful he was a part of our adventure so far. The hospitality doesn't stop there-- the beauty of Bogle Farms is rooted deeply in the Bogle Family itself, and their genuine desire to make your wedding day a beautiful celebration of who you are. Britney, Thom's daughter, was our day-of coordinator and we could not have done it without her expertise and advice!! I encourage you to visit Bogle Farms before you make a decision-- although I can pretty much guarantee you will fall in love once you do! Love, The Williams'

Our Great Story Wedding

  • 5 of 5

The Bogle Farm is a beautiful setting, for a wedding or just a family gathering. We had just about everyone of our 160 guests make a comment about how beautiful and fun the farm was. The owners made our stay on the property as well as the rehearsal dinner and wedding a beautiful and memorable experience. I highly recommend the Bogle Farm for your next gathering, I know we plan on returning for a family weekend.

fairytale wedding

  • 5 of 5

I had my wedding here this past weekend and all I have to say is this was the FIRST and ONLY venue I looked at. We were blown away with the absolutely beautiful venue. I am honestly not sure what was the best part, the beautiful venue or the Bogle family that owns it. They are the nicest people and were there to help you with anything you needed. I mean I had a dress malfunction literally as I was about to walk down the aisle and Mr. Bogle was there to the rescue! They are great people! Every single one of my guest talked about how beautiful it was and how cool it was that they had cabins and a bridal house to stay in for the entire weekend. We had the best time and I could not have picked a more perfect place to have my wedding! So thank you again Bogle family for everything you did to make this the best weekend I could have asked for!!!! IT WAS PERFECT!!

Great venue (but take care of that cat!)

  • 4 of 5

Pretty farm with great amenities that offer flexibility, style, and fun. We attended a wedding there and loved the bucolic setting.

There is this wonderful young cat that lives near the cabins (a stray that is very friendly). He was a highlight of our visit. I would hope that the property owner might look after the cat and keep it fed (as he seemed malnourished).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words about Bogle Farm---we enjoyed hosting the wedding you attended and the 150+ people who were present! In terms of the "stray cat", who appeared on our doorstep in the spring, we wouldn't THINK of mistreating this Feline Phenom who has become more popular with guests than our horses, goats, chickens and donkeys! More than one guest has wanted to leave with the cat in their car---and a Vet who left us flea and tick medicine gave us helpful advice. In fact, on FB we have people from GA to New Zealand (yes the NZ across the world!) who have met the cat are offering names. So far, SURVIVOR, seems to be the leading contender. Many thanks for your love for Bogle Farm----AND, the 'Cat'.

Engagement party

  • 5 of 5

threw an engagement party for my sister her Aug 26-29.......We thoroughly enjoyed the Bogle's farm......Our family members were 8yrs - 90yrs old and we all had a ball..

Our main event was held in the pavilion part of the was perfect from the setup of the event to our guest not complaining about the heat because of the awesome breeze coming thru the pavilion on one of the hottest weekends in August.....the oversized fireplace was a great addition for us we gathered around for smores great conversation and breathe taking views of the skies.....the 3 sisters cabins were well equipped and strategicly place away from the main house so that the younger minnenials could kick back and relax by the pool....and you could find my uncle's around the fishing pond most afternoon's....the help in renting a golf carts was a great addition for moving about the compound too..

Oh and let me not forget about all the animals too ready and willing for photo opts 😁 favorite is Felix the cat....This was definitely a place to remember and will stay on my short list for awesome places to stay....thanks again Mr Thom for all of your definitely have a jewel in the country.....
