Beautiful Lakefront Retreat With One Of Lake Sinclair's Best Views!

The historic Wildwood Flower Retreat and Compound is perfect for couples, families, and that special weekend away. The Retreat is completely furnished and decorated in a sportsman's theme of wildlife prints, southern college football, golf and fishing motifs. Sit in the hot tub, while watching the waves hit the lake wall!

Home of famed author of 'Go West Young Man and Don't Come Back,' the Wildwood Flower is one of the first homes on Lake Sinclair.

The Wildwood Flower was built in 1955 by the former 'boss hog'-type mayor of Milledgeville, Walter B. Williams Jr. who 'ruled' Milledgeville, GA from the 50's through the 70's. This home served as the back-drop for many of Walter's political meetings and lavish lakefro...

Beautiful spot on Lake Sinclair for our Easter weekend. The house was well maintained and decorated. My boys loved all of the sports memorabilia throughout the house. Plenty of room and the view was spectacular. The only downside was that we didn't rent a boat ahead of time. Learning experience for next time to book boat early. Wonderful weekend on the lake.

The property is located perfectly to access some good fishing and site seeing. We ended up catching more fish from the dock than other places friends had told us to go. The house is perfectly described. You can set in the living room or be preparing a meal and see the lake and watch the boats go by. At the time of our visit the water was clear, you could see about 6-8 feet deep. The house has a warm welcome feeling and décor. Reclining couches and loveseats after that long day on the lake. I meet Gary and his grounds keeper, very nice people. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Gary for allowing us to enjoy your place.
