CHATAHOSPEE CREEK RETREAT
This beautiful 116-acre property has frontage on magnificent Chatahospee Creek and is dominated by mature hardwoods. While the deer hunting is excellent the turkey hunting is legendary. For a smaller tract, this property consistently gives up many trophy gobblers each season. When on the land you quickly see why the property is such a good hunting tract. Mixed in with the beautiful hardwoods are mature pines (providing great roosting sites for the turkeys), and a nice 8-acre open area that is typically planted in oats, wheat, and clover. There are several shooting houses and ladder stands scattered throughout the property as well.
The other crown jewels of this property are the charming cabin and beautiful Chatahospee Creek. The cabin was purposely built right on the bank of the creek so that you not only get the fantastic views but also get to hear the sound of the water rushing by. There is a screen porch that hangs out almost over the creek that is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and a cold beverage in the evening as you swap hunting stories from the day afield. Also, not a bad place to fall asleep listening to the sound of the water rolling by.
The cabin is nice and open with a sleeping loft, 1 full bath, and a kitchen/dining/den area. The cabin is constructed with several different types of wood such as poplar, white oak, wormy maple, cedar, and cypress on the outside. All of these different types of wood combine to give this cabin a warm and comfortable feeling that also has a lot of character. Water is supplied by a well that has the best tasting water that you have ever had, and power is currently supplied by a large propane-powered generator. The current owner typically uses the propane to provide fuel for the lights and uses the wood-burning stove to heat the entire cabin, and rarely has to use the generator. If you wanted to run power from the power company lines to the cabin that could be done too.
Chatahospee Creek! It is a beautiful, wide creek that is as beautiful to look at as it is fun to fish. The owner has caught redeye bass, spotted bass, and catfish from its waters. You can fish this creek by wading when the water conditions are right, or take a kayak or canoe. This creek flows directly into the Tallapoosa River. There is a 100’ long heavy duty suspension bridge that crosses the creek. This gives you easy access to the 20 acres on the other side of the creek. Another unique find on this property is the remnants of a Native American fish trap in the creek (please see pictures in the brochure for a more detailed description). It is incredible to stand on the bank and image them constructing this ingenious trap out of rocks and then using it as a means to procure protein. It truly is one of the first types of aquaculture in this country!
This property offers plenty of seclusion and privacy. Located about 14 miles north of Highway 280 at Camp Hill, Alabama. Access is directly off of a county maintained dirt road. Auburn is a 40-45 minute drive and you can be at the northern part of Lake martin in about 30-35 minutes.
