About Rusty Johnson

Rusty Johnson has been building custom home for over 30 years and has acquired a reputation for unique carpentry and architecture. This cabin was built as Rusty’s signature home, incorporating many of the custom techniques created and perfected over his career. For example, after finding a 100+ year old heart pine log in the Satilla River, he used the giant tree to build the spiral staircase inside. The Swamp was built as a getaway home for the Johnson family and has been greatly loved and cared for over the years. With the Johnson family now older, Rusty is presenting the property to the public to enjoy the same type of treasurable family moments.

Why Rusty Johnson chose Georgia

This spectacular property is as close as you can get to the Satilla River, with the water flowing right in the backyard. The unique location of the property on the river allows for privacy and safety (the property does not flood when the river rises). The accumulation of peace, serenity, nature, privacy, and safety led to the purchase of the stunning property.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin allows guest to be close to nature and still enjoy modern amenities. The cabin offers fishing and recreation opportunities without leaving the location. The cabin is absolutely the best way to get back to the good ol’ days.

Rustic, Lovely Home by Georgia Wetlands

  • 5 of 5

As a nature lover I adored this home. It is rustic with antiques and situated on the Georgia wetlands. It was so comfortable to come into after a long drive. We were able to settle in and found it to be a pleasant surprise with a lot of space to roam. We rented this home to stay for my sons wedding on Jekyll Island and it was perfect. It was only 30 min to the venue and found it to be a nice, relaxing place to rest after the business of the event. The home was as described and clean. The first floor is a complete private living area. My one suggestion for this floor would be to retire the cowboy boot/legs end table. The rest of the antiques in the home were quite charming and my 85 yr mother enjoyed them. The second floor or main part of the home was our main hang out space. The back porch over looked the wetlands and we found it to be lovely. Perhaps a screened in porch would be nice since the bugs like to bite in the evening. There was a complimentary bug spray which we did use. The loft was a great sleeping space with plenty of room and a bathroom with shower. A concern I had was that the porches needed a bit of child proofing by perhaps adding some rails to keep a kiddo from slipping through. My grandson and I were able to take one of the canoes out for a little "paddle time" on the river. I enjoyed our stay at this home and would like to say "thank you" for allowing us to enjoy this Georgia wetland gem.

Spring break family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin on the Satilla River for little over two weeks. We had two families join us the first week & two the second week. The cabin was big enough for all of us and met our needs perfectly. It is an awesome place, beautiful and peaceful. The cabin and our time there was everything we had hoped for. We would definitely recommend it.
