Stone Creek Farm
We are a semi retired couple with an equestrian estate. Our daughter lives in Zambia so we need someone we trust to stay in our home when we travel to see her. Occasionally we leave for a long weekend somewhere local as well. I am a USEA Certified Instructor and my husband is an executive with Rollins Corporation.
Our Home & Location
We live in beautiful Madison, Ga. It is a tourist destination as it was the town Sherman did not burn in his March to the Sea during the civil war. There are multitudes of antebellum homes that escaped ruination. This town is rich in history and culture.
Madison is 45 minutes west of Augusta, Ga where the Augusta National Golf Course is, we are a little over an hour east of Atlanta and 25 minutes south of Athens, Ga. Madison is in Morgan County and very close to the Lake Oconee reservoir and the Ritz Carlton in Greensboro , Ga. To round off the excellent location a short hour and forty five minute drive takes you into the foothills of the Smokey Mountains....
We have 13 acres on Plantation Rd including a beautiful riding arena, cross country jumps and a grass dressage arena surrounded by a black four board fence. Our neighbors are just wonderful and this is a very safe and beautiful area. We have a fully furnished carriage house apartment, the main house and the living quarters area above our stables we call the barndeminium.
We have a man made creek, a hot tub and an 8 ft stock tank pool.
Our farm is only 10-13 minutes to the quaint town of Madison and grocery stores. There are multiple restaurants and outside dining available in town as well. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like for you to feed our dogs morning and night. The puppy is young but we have an area where the two of them can be safely left for three to four hours. Water our plants. The dogs are house dogs and sleep inside at night. During hot weather they stay inside mostly except for going to the bathroom and brief play periods.
If you are horse savvy we would like for you to feed them their grain in the morning and at night. I have a neighbor that will come turn them out in the pasture and bring them in at night so you will not be responsible for handling the horses, just giving their food and water. If you are uncomfortable giving the horses food and water I will take that into consideration. Clean water for all animals is important to us. Our animals are healthy and well mannered....
The barn cats have bowls in the barn with a can with their cat food next to it. They get dry food morning and night.
The small pool, creek and hot tub will need appropriate chemicals when needed.
It will be imperative this opportunity be a solid commitment because we have overseas tickets booked. We want the sitters to come the 2nd of August so we can show where everything is. We leave the third of August. + More info
