06-005 Baker Farm and Lodge
This beautiful legacy property has been under the same stewardship by the same family for almost 150 years! Throughout the years the property has transitioned from row crops and cattle to the magnificent hunting preserve that it is today. In 2006 the owner started planting strips of pine trees that are nicely spread out around the farm. Today about half of the total acreage is planted in these pine strips making this the perfect place for put and take quail hunting. The owner recently planted Egyptian Wheat and Sage Brush to provide cover and food for the quail. The turkeys like it too! The remaining property consists of open land, and two hardwood drains where Pauls Creek and Jackson Creek merge on the southern end to make the beginning of the West Fork of the Choctawhatchee River.
Barbour County has always been one of the top counties in Alabama for deer and turkey hunting, and this quiet, well-manicured, 100-acre preserve is no exception. While the hunting is outstanding there are also three fishing ponds with bass, bream, and catfish. Two fishing pavilions provide perfect places to rock in rocking chairs while you wait for a fish to attack your bait.
The lodge/home was completely renovated in 2010. The interior walls were taken down to the original studs and rebuilt to create the beautiful, comfortable space that it is today. This home/lodge has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, family room, dining area, garage, front and back decks, and (my favorite) the screened-in patio with a huge stone fireplace. Other improvements include a stable and tack room, and a storage barn.
Conveniently located an hour from Auburn, 30 minutes from Eufaula and Union Springs, and approximately 60 miles or so from the Florida Panhandle. Access is directly off County Road 19. Power and water are on site. Annual taxes are $479.
This one-of-a-kind property truly has a little of everything. Great hunting, 3 ponds, lodge/home, stable, storage barn, tons of outdoor space to entertain, a nice mix of open and wooded land, all in a quiet part of Barbour County.
