"It is rare when a property has as many superlatives as Whitehall Plantation. Any one of which would be outstanding for one plantation much alone combined all together here on over 8,000 acres. With the remarkable Classic Revival Home, the World-Class Lodge, one of the largest private lakes in Georgia, the 2,300 acres of impeccable irrigated farmland, 4,000 acres of exceptional and intensely managed wild quail woods - all of this makes Whitehall Plantation the rare and unique place it is today." Walter Hatchett, Co-Listing Agent
"Nobody is leaving land better than they found it than the current land owner." Jon Kohler, Broker
"Having sold Whitehall Plantation to the current owner of 14.5 years, I have witnessed a dramatically improved and eco-friendly environment for wildlife and recreational enjoyment. No till farming on the irrigated acres have added valuable topsoil and nutrients to the land. The owner is an ardent conservationist and quail hunter. No expense has been spared to improve the quality of the wildlife populations and enjoyment of the property by his family and quests." Ed Pope, Co-Listing Agent/Broker
