The Door and Ladder, originally built as a home brewery, sits in the midst of 4 acres of forest, gardens and lawns. We built it of wood milled from trees on our property. The overall impression upon entering the door is of warm, rustic coziness.
We are in a lovely old wooded neighborhood. Though it feels remote, we are actually only 5 minutes from two different shopping districts.
Lesley and I are available to assist our guests, but their privacy is always respected.

The space
The Door and Ladder is a retreat. A retreat to a quiet time in the present and to an earlier age when days and seasons were the main ways of keeping time. There is no television, but there is excellent wifi service. When it rains, the soft pattering sound on the tin roof can lull you to sleep...or to dream. The cabin is furnished with many hand-made items, rare and wonderful books and classic utilitarian utensils like your grandparents had. Coffee, tea and some snack items are provided. If we have fresh garden produce, we'll probably offer you some. If you want to sit around a campfire or grill some meat or veggies, just step outside the door and walk a few feet.
Come prepared to relax, enjoy Nature, a good book, maybe a glass of wine, and a few days of quietness.

Where you’ll be

Macon, Georgia, United States

We are located in an old wooded neighborhood that is still largely zoned agricultural. Across our street is an antebellum mansion that dates from the earliest days of Macon. The Door and Ladder is several hundred yards off the street so it has a feeling of luscious, quiet isolation. Yet we are a few minutes away from supermarkets, pubs, coffee shops, fine restaurants and excellent shopping areas. Wesleyan College, where I was a professor for 20 years is 2 miles away. They have a 100 acre arboretum that has miles of walking trails and is open to the public.

My husband Patrick and I spent most of our careers in education, from teaching English and special education to teaching teachers. We love long distance hiking in the UK, gardening, reading, writing and music. We have been hosting for several years now and very much enjoy meeting people from near and far.
