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.

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, nice area, room for everyone. I have no complaints about the rental. My only concern was the note listed in the house rules on the refrigerator that states alligators, poisonous snakes and spiders visit property. I was nervous letting our 6-7 year old children play outside. I was under the impression the house was more of a lake front, not swamp front. With that being said, my fears have nothing to do with the actual rental. I would recommend home away and the home owner to all!

Great time visiting friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great together for friends and family. All guests and others enjoyed the "Swamp" house.

Minor issues include: (1) Light bulbs needed replacing (2) knives needed sharpening

Wish list though not really important would be to have WIFI. The DISH TV was out on Sunday afternoon for 2 hours due to bad lightening storms.

Suggestion to future renters: bring your own bar soap. We could not find any.

Nice Proberty

  • 4 of 5

Due to conflicting appointments, I was only able to stay one of three planned nights. The first thing I noticed when I got out of my car were the large number of mosquitoes. After getting settled in the house, started to mix a drink. No ice or ice trays in the freezer. (Did find ice trays in the lower kitchen later when inspecting the property.) Had to go to grocery store to buy some ice and bug spray. Fortunately I do not mind deet.

They have canoes but I did not get to try one. There were too far from water for one person to move one. I did try fishing for about an hour in the water that is part of the property.

For a large group that wants to be together at the Satilla River, this is great property. Other than the ice trays on main floor, they have everything you should need. I put one tray in main area, Communication with owners is very good.

Nice Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Spent a few days here with family. Has plenty of room, peaceful and relaxing. There is no wifi...which is a good thing. Time for personal interaction. 3 year old grand daughter had a great time exploring. Bug spray was available, but bring some extra. The gnats can get pesky at times, but weren't overwhelming.

A really great house!

  • 5 of 5

I took my sons here for a week and we couldn't be happier. This home is extremely well built and is very comfortable. My sons and I had a great time. The canoes are great the location is great and the area is really nice. I would definitely stay again. It was painful to leave this morning.
