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 cabin experience for the holidays

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious and nicely spread out. Perfect for large family, with 3 floors, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We enjoyed canoeing, grilling and spending time on the decks. Enough house amenities to get by (toilet paper, blankets, kitchen utensils, etc). Traditional coffee maker (no Kreurig). Had a bit of a challenge reaching the host when I arrived to find the keys, as the instructions were not very clear. The electric fireplace didn't work but overall had a great stay. Highly recommend! Thank you Mr. Johnson.

Awesome.

  • 5 of 5

By far the best place I've stayed in yet. We rented this luxurious cabin getaway, for my wedding, not even knowing what the inside looked like, but upon our arrival, it was maracular. Pristine more of. We had our after wedding reception, in the back yard and almost all of our quest who attended, were blew away and all proceeded to tell how this place was a "mansion". From the solid wood walls, floors, cabinets and updated bathrooms, with plenty of accommodation, this river wonderland help but the cherry on top, for my rustic sunset wedding. We we most definitely be renting this place again, but this time to sit back and revel in the true beauty this place has to offer.

With the newest of perspective, Mr. & Mrs.Kimbrell
