About The Owner

I grew up in area so my southern roots run deep. Now I live in Tx., married my TCU college sweet heart and have 2 adult children and 4 grandchildren. we travel alot and are involved in community acitivities and love hanging with our grandchildren. I am a Tx. real estate broker and manage families properties.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1999

Why The Owner chose Perry

Centrally located in the Heart of Georgia, 3-4 hours from beach and mountains. Many attractions in area for entertainment. Shopping in the Historic town of Perry with quaint shops along the town square & antique shops in the area. Then drive over to Centerville to the Galleria Mall, about a twenty five min drive. Mossy Creek festival located across the street from cabin. April & Oct. Easy access to Ga. National Fairgrounds & Agricenter (about 10 minutes way)

What makes this cabin unique

Peaceful, relaxing, enjoying the back deck that offers beautiful views of lake and nature. The choice of cooking at home in a fully equipped kitchen or the convenience of eating out, minutes away. The comfort of having 4 bedrooms for family and guests and all can gather in 'Great Room' for visiting,fun, and T.V. Driving to Lanes Orchard for fresh peach ice cream is a favorite. My husband loves the golf at Houston Lake County Club which is 5 minutes away. The friendliness of the people everywhere is so refreshing. That southern hospitality is the real deal.

The house was awesome!!!! Very clean and SO SPACIOUS!! Stacey was SO EXTREMELY helpful!! We locked ourselves out and she helped right away!! Our favorite part was the spacious kitchen and the comfortable beds!! My husband and I even took the mattress pad off to take a picture of the mattress tag so we could go buy one! We slept like new born babies!! Will return again if we need to be in the area for another work assignment! Thank you Sheryl!!

Grand cabin on a lake

  • 5 of 5

We were in Perry for an event at the state agriculture center/fairgrounds and stayed here at Crane's Nest (about 15 minutes away). There were 6 adults (3 married couples), some of us with creaky joints and backs, so the one level home was perfect. This place is enormous in size--we used 3 of the 4 bedrooms, and everyone had plenty of space. The huge kitchen is well equipped with a drip-coffee maker, crockpots, many place settings, and all kinds of utensils. Linens and bedspreads are plentiful, which is great since the weather was cold. The cabin's all-wood interior is quite beautiful. Both Stacy (local) and Sheryl were extremely helpful. We hope to come back again when we can just spend some time in this lovely home.

Owner's Response: So appreciate when a guest takes the time to write a review. She has stayed with us numerous times over the years for a couple of weeks at a time and we love having her. The property is minutes from the AG Center which makes it so convenient for guests who attend events there. We have travelers who stay a couple of nights to several weeks. Crane's Nest is a special place and we love sharing it with guests who enjoy the comforts of a beautiful log cabin on the Lake, surrounded by 4 wooded acres.. A peaceful hide-away with Southern Charm.

Owner's Response: Crane's Nest is a wonderful location for people attending events at the AG Center and a wonderful "Home away from Home" setting. These were exceptional guests- very responsible and observing the "rules " of the house with their four legged pooches (champion show dogs) . They truly were a delight!!

So homey and clean

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house while working at the National Fair for 11 days and got home late from working one night and locked our selves out of the house on accident and the property manager quickly came and unlocked the door for us. She also put pumpkins out on the pouch for us. The little details make it so nice!

Wonderful place to stay and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Crane's Nest for 3 nights for a wedding weekend, and it was everything we hoped for and more! The owners were very accommodating, and Stacy, the property manager, was prompt and helpful. We had a large party of guests, and there was plenty of space for all, as well as great amenities: from extra linens to firewood to all the kitchen essentials we needed to make a spontaneous buffet breakfast! Definitely recommend, we would love to go back!
