Outdoor Activities around the Farm:

Hundred Acre Farm has always been know for the great wildlife and bird watching. Our beautiful natural landscape with wide shallow water along the river and lake, the two fishing ponds, and the expansive, open meadows and pastures, attracts many different species. Both native and migratory song birds, shore birds, and raptors make their home here at the inn’s backdoor.

Birds & Blooms Magazine in their October 2009 issue named the Farmhouse Inn at Hundred Acre Farm as one of the Top 10 Bed & Breakfast in North America for birding.

"……on the headwaters of Lake Oconee just to the northeast is Oconee National Forest, home to bald eagles that are often on the inn’s property. Guests can use a “birding basket” that includes bird call recordings and bird identification books and binoculars. You can also read about other guests’ sightings and write about your own in the inn’s birding journals. ………"

Walking Trails – Look for a Trail Map in the Common Gathering Room or Red Barn to begin a walk around Hundred Acre Farm’s eighty-six acre nature preserve. The trail begins on the gravel entrance drive and leads to wooded walking trails and ends at the edge of Lake Oconee’s headwaters. There are just under five miles of walking trails. A tornado touched down in our woods in 2011 so you will see the damage in some areas so please be safe and stay on cleared marked trails.

Fishing – There are two fishing ponds as well as the Apalachee River and Lake Oconee for fishing. A fishing license is not necessary when fishing from the shore on our property. Limited fishing rods and gear for guest use are located in the Red Barn Meeting Room. Live bait can be purchased from the Apalachee Bait Shop just ¼ mile from the farm on Hwy. 278 on the river.

Water Sports-Canoes are available for use at the farm, but must be reserved in advance. Kayaking and Standup Paddle Boarding are popular here and can be arranged in advance for groups.

This is a natural area and wild animals may be encountered. Walking shoes or hiking boots are recommended.

Golf Cart – A gas powered golf cart is available for guest use. Instructions and rules are located on the steering wheel clip board. Only drivers aged 15 and older with parent’s permission are allowed to drive.
