Barren Creek Lodge
Barren Creek Lodge is located in Historic Washington County, Alabama. Named after the First President of the United States, George Washington and organized in June of 1800, Washington County was the first county organized in what would later become Alabama, as settlers moved westward after the American Revolutionary War. Washington County is also the site of St Stephens, the first Territorial capital of Alabama. This area of Washington County was long inhabited by the Choctaw and Creek Indians until later being pushed out by the US Government to the West of the Mississippi River and on to Oklahoma. Historians write that Indians burned the woods for thousands of years before the coming of the white man and that in order to survive he had to protect himself from the trees. Severe burning kept the forest open and free of underbrush, which encouraged the growth of grass and other plants that provided food for the wildlife. Forest management practices dating back hundreds of years helped in developing what Barren Creek Lodge has to offer today.

At the end of the one-mile gravel drive into the property sits the private upscale lodge that was newly constructed and finished in 2009. It is 3600 +/- square feet with an open floor plan, full upscale kitchen, two full bathrooms, two fire places (gas and wood burning), large custom bar and cooking space with six full beds throughout. It has two central HVAC systems and spray foam insulation. The utilities include electricity, septic, liquid propane for cooking, and a deep water well. There is also a whole house 40kw backup diesel generator in the event utility power is ever lost. The lodge shares a metal roof and concrete slab with the adjoining 3600 +/- square foot metal shed with (2) roll up doors, work shop, hunting lockers and an abundance of space for any size equipment. Connecting to the back of the lodge is an 840 +/- square foot covered RV parking and storage building. Also constructed in 2009 is the 1840 +/- square foot metal shed with (2) roll up doors, deer cleaning station, stainless cleaning tables and additional equipment storage. There are two nice covered dog kennels on the grounds as well as two 8-ton GSI silos, additional storage building for bagged feed and a 900-gallon diesel fuel tank.

The timber value here is also exceptional and arguably one of the best timber growing areas in the state! Per the most recent timber cruise data in 2010 the timber value was north of $1.5M on the 2401+/- timbered acres. Very little timber has been cut or thinned since this data was recorded in 2010 and per the Forest Management Report is projecting a 5.3% growth rate on the 1,013 acres of natural stands and an 8.3% growth rate for the 1,311 acres of plantation stands. Approximately 180+/- acres have been clear-cut and replanted in longleaf as well as 260+/- acres lightly thinned. This is an area known for its great timber growing soils and is conveniently located in close proximity to numerous forest product facilities.

Barren Creek Lodge is a hunter's dream! Barren Creek Lodge is a dream for anyone who enjoys living the outdoor lifestyle! It has been extensively managed for deer and turkey and is peaking now from these efforts. Year-round feeding program for deer, chufa patches and hundreds of acres burned each year as part of the rotational burning program for the turkeys. Beautiful rolling topography, staggered timber ages, dense ground cover for bedding alongside open hills and creek bottoms give wildlife everything they need to thrive. With such diverse terrain from the Pine Barren Creek bottoms to the rolling piney woods creates great hunting opportunities to catch game using these natural travel corridors. This place has and holds the wildlife!

This is a great opportunity on a great high quality recreational property.

BROKERS COMMENT:
“When one understands the combination of forces working together here it will be obvious as to why this place is special. Imagine almost 2500 contiguous acres stacked with merchantable timber in one of the strongest timber growing baskets in the state. Then imagine an owner who understands and practices good land stewardship and conservation, who implements wildlife feeding programs, prescribed burns and plants summer and winter food plots. While there are many, my favorite aspect of Barren Creek is that it is not over-developed. This property has been designed and laid out so well, with all of the necessary amenities in place to start enjoying immediately but also much of the land has been virtually untouched. This allows the new owner to start with a clean slate and put their own ideas to work and continue improving and enjoying this High Quality Recreational Property.”
