Our stop before the mountains!

5 on September 17, 2016

My husband and I were traveling to Northern South Carolina to do some hiking and needed a stop before reaching our final destination. What a pleasure it was to stay at the Chicken Coop! Sonja and Norman were very gracious hosts, After a delicious dessert treat and coffee when we arrived late in the afternoon, Sonja took us on a short tour of the property so we could take photos. We then relaxed on the porch with our guests and talked about everything! The next morning our breakfast could not have been more perfect, cudos on that chicken!! Sonya, I promise to send you my film photo of you on the porch when we get them developed. Thanks again! Mary and Eduardo Paris

Gee, what fun and interesting guests you were! It was our pleasure to have you roost with us at The Coop. Please make an excuse to come back. We would be delighted to have you.

A Perfect Weekend!

We were in town for our son's graduation at UGA and had the pleasure of staying with Sonja and Norman at the Chicken Coop. It could not have been a more perfect place! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. An added surprise was the fresh strawberry desserts waiting on us when we arrived. Being in a hurry, I had mine for a late midnight snack. The next morning we awoke to a delicious breakfast that included homemade biscuits and preserves, and the best chicken we have ever eaten! Even better than the rooms and food was the warmth and friendliness received from Sonja and Norman. They made us feel right at home. We were so very blessed to have stayed here. It just made an already "Special" and memorable weekend that much more special and memorable! We can't wait to return for another stay!

Innkeeper Response
It was a pleasure roosting your family last weekend. You were so sweet and loving to each other. All of you were patient and kind and never in such a big hurry. You were truly a blessing to someone like me who is always in a hurry and impatient when things don't go my way. It's amazing the people the Lord sends our way and how much we learn from others. May He continue to use your family as you follow Him. God bless you all! (Looking forward to having you back.)

Return visit!

Sonja and Norman received us like family! Just got better after we arrived! Moved into our most comfortable and inviting rooms and then opted to have our afternoon treat after our evening meal. They suggested a local restaurant for supper. Good advice! Came back and ate our delicious cobbler, brushed our teeth and then attended the Historical Oglethorpe monthly meeting in Lexington, just two miles down the road. After a good nights sleep we enjoyed the best breakfast ever! Hated to leave, but we will be back! Wish Historical Oglethorpe would meet every week!

Innkeeper Response
How gracious the Lord has been to us. It was such a pleasure having you roost with us and share our common memories of Crawford,Ga. You both were such a delight. Hope to see you again soon and often.

A wonderful time

What a pleasure Sonja and Norman are! We enjoyed our stay at their cozy bed and breakfast. We felt right at home. The breakfast and cobbler were excellent. Our rooms were perfect. Our 13 year old son can't stop talking about how much fun he had! We will be back to visit for sure. Sincerely your Alabama friends! Roll Tide.

The food was fantastic, and the hosts treated us like family. One of the best B & B's we have stayed at (and we have stayed at quite a few!).

Excellent Choice

Me and my son needed a place to stay while enjoying some hunting near Crawford and I was advised to go meet the folks here at The Chicken Coop. I have never stayed at a bed n breakfast so I really didn't know what to expect but low and behold that unseen person that travels with me showed up and made us feel welcome. Met wonderful owners whom I now can call friends. My son even shot his first deer the next morning!! So thankful to meet all the new friends in the Crawford/Lexington area. We were made to feel right at home and would highly recommend the Chicken Coop to anyone. Really thankful to meet Norman & Sonja!! Everything was very neat and clean!!! I am very thankful for Norman & Sonja, my new friends.

Innkeeper Response
It's always special to host a parent-child weekend of bonding time. It's an investment that pays off each and every day. Glad we could be a small part in the building of the next generation. May God continue to bless you and your family. Thank you for choosing The Coop for your roosting needs. So look forward to a return visit.

We enjoyed our stay at the Chicken Coop this weekend. It's a beautiful place and Mrs. Sonja is the sweetest lady. This was the first time I've stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and I was impressed. Breakfast was amazing. I can't wait to stay here again next time we're in the area.

Innkeeper Response
