Market Competition and Expansion:
Our phones don't stop ringing! We receive on average 75-125 calls a month from Brides wanting to book their wedding at our private estate. Do the #'s, there are only 4 Saturdays and 4 Sundays each month. We have weddings booked through November of 2013 and are already getting calls for 2014. Brides love us! Our clients continually ask us to provide them with additional lodging for their immediate family and out of state guests. The main home would be an ideal 3-5 bedroom suite Bed & Breakfast. And the 80-acres allows the new owner the opportunity to further develop. And our Barn is in constant demand because it offers imported crystal chandeliers, 4500 sq feet under central AC/Heat, a dance floor, professional stage, commercial prep kitchen & private parking for 200 guests. Our client base is not limited to Alabama. Our private estate has become a national destination-wedding venue. Our private estate has 2 established parking lots. The main parking lot in front could easily accommodate 300+ cars. The rear parking lot holds 75-100. The estate is only 30 minutes from the Talladega Super Speedway. We have been inundated with calls for both lodging and RV parking during race weeks. Our 80-acre estate would be ideal for RV Campsites and additional log cabins amongst our magnificent rolling hills and 2nd lake. We are only located 3 miles, right down the road from the very popular Logan Martin Lake and it’s year round activities. And best of all we are just 6 miles off I-20, just a 10-minute drive to our front gate.
Our patrons have been begging us to establish and hold an annual October Pumpkin Patch Festival complete with Hay Rides, Hay Mazes, Face Painting, Old Fashioned Contests and of course food & refreshments. They would also like us to hold an annual Christmas Wonderland complete with horse and tractor rides throughout the decorated estate, Santa Clause, homemade craft items to purchase, food, refreshments and entertainment. We have also been asked if we would be willing to hold both flea markets and concerts on our estate, because of the magnificent rolling hills and huge open pastures and parking lots. We are told over and over again from Alabama residents, what they want and that there is no other place in the state that is as beautiful as our private estate or has the perfect location to provide them with these activities. Again we are only 30 minutes from Birmingham, AL and 90 minutes from Atlanta, GA. We have also been approached by a film director, who expressed possible interest in using our private estate for the filming of a television realty show. Our private estate can also simply just be someone else’s private estate or corporate retreat. The opportunities are endless.
