Welcome to Plains, Georgia!

Coming Soon...

In a few short months, you will be able to book the gardens at Plains Cottage -- located in the beautiful historic southern Georgia town of Plains.

Small intimate weddings, elopements, vow renewals, gardening events, styled photo shoots, tea parties and more will be hosted and booked through my 2021 and 2022 availability calendar.  Please note, this is a private residence and not open to the public, therefore an appointment must be made.

If you are interested in more preliminary information, please subscribe to the cottage newsletter below.

As a RV food blogger, full time RVer and historical cottage restorer, I’m realizing that the heart behind my lifestyle blog is to be homemade, just like my RV cooking, RV gardening at home, and other home related topics! 


Starting in 2021, I will share recipes, ideas, and tips with you that I love to make in my farmhouse and RV; but more importantly, I hope it reminds you to spend time a home (no matter its size!) and make it really good for the people you love.
