The Elliott House


During its use as a plantation, this building would have been called “The Big House” and served as the main quarters of the owners. It holds a formal dining room, living room and den for guests to enjoy as well as three, unique bedrooms. A traditional, European garden and a wine cellar sit adjacent to the building.

King George Suite

Named after King George III who originally granted the land for Grove Point to James E. Powell in 1774. This room was added in the 1940s by George Mercer for his son and is the largest suite on The Plantation. Antique accents provide an authentic historical experience. The suite houses a king-sized bed, private indoor and outdoor sitting areas and a full shower/bath.

Palm Suite

The Elliott House was originally built in the 1880s with a palm allée planted in the front as an extravagant welcome. This suite still overlooks this pathway adorned with trees and shrubs. The suite houses two queen sized-beds, an original fireplace, a full bathroom with walk-in shower and private water closet. Do you dare to ask the staff: “Who is Julianna?”

Garden Suite

Named for the views of Cheves garden seen through the large windows, this suite is perfect for soaking in the sights. Several large live oaks, Georgia’s state tree, are rooted in close view and cradle the foreground of vast marshes. The suite houses two queen sized-beds, a full bathroom with walk-in shower and private water closet.

The Little Details

Grab a cool drink of fresh-fruit-infused water or iced tea anytime in The Elliott House foyer. Fresh coffee or tea are just a touch away with a Keurig machine in the same locale. Take a seat in the many sitting-area options on both the first and second floor. And, of course, a snack is only a request away if an appetite arises.
