Within the picturesque landscape of Georgia, on 450 acres of sprawling farmland, sits a charming family retreat that marries rustic charm with an air of refined elegance.
Crafted for a family seeking a retreat that blends seamlessly with nature, this lodge stands as a testament to the architectural finesse of C. Brandon Ingram and interior design talent of Mallory Mathison.
Furnishings were carefully selected for both style and durability, with a mix of plush sofas, handcrafted wooden tables, and accents that reflect the rustic elegance of the lodge.
It’s hard to really pinpoint what makes up charm of this place. It’s something that we know when we see. And this is undeniably charming.
It’s the tiny details, the things that people might not even notice at first glance, the way they fit together, that create a space that is truly unforgettable.
From a breakfast nook as beautiful as the food on the table,
To a living room so cozy we’d never want to leave,
A primary bedroom that hits the right notes of lodge feel and elegance,
And a well-appointed bath that ensures everyone’s comfort… This lodge absolutely has it all!
Speaking of charm… Can a log cabin not be charming?
This is the kind of space that envelopes you the moment you walk through the door…
Calling you inside…
Beckoning you back home. This rugged yet refined lodge stands not just as a retreat but as a symbol of the family’s appreciation for nature’s beauty and their desire to immerse themselves in its tranquility while enjoying the comforts of modern living. It is a haven where family bonds are strengthened, and memories are woven into the fabric of the landscape, creating an enduring legacy for generations to come.
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day. We always love seeing you here!

MORE ABOUT THE SUMMER OF SONGBIRD
Four women come together to save the summer camp that changed their lives and rediscover themselves in the process in this heartwarming new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Veil.
Nearly thirty years ago, in the wake of a personal tragedy, June Moore bought Camp Holly Springs and turned it into a thriving summer haven for girls. But now, June is in danger of losing the place she has sacrificed everything for—and begins to realize how much she has used the camp to avoid facing difficulties in her life.
June’s niece, Daphne, met her two best friends, Lanier Bradley and Mary Stuart Harris, during a fateful summer at camp, and the three are inseparable even in their thirties. But when attorney Daphne discovers that Lanier’s fiancé—who just so happens to be her client—has done something highly illegal, she must choose between her job and her friendship.
Meanwhile, Lanier is hiding secrets both new and old that might make Daphne see the situation in an entirely different light. When one of those secrets unexpectedly rises to the surface, it threatens to change the very fabric of their friendship.
But when the women learn that their childhood oasis is in danger of closing, they put aside their own problems and band together with June to save it, sending them on a journey that promises to open the next chapters in their lives.
From an author whose “writing coats your soul with heart” (E! Online), The Summer of Songbirds is a lyrical and unforgettable celebration of female friendship, and a love letter to the places and people that make us who we are.
