Earlier this month I was a guest of the lovely Davis House Tea Room and Bed & Breakfast in Flemington, Georgia. Built in 1870 by Captain James Bacon Fraser. The building is an example of the raised cottage style house with Victorian additions. For many years it was the home of Misses Laura and Lilly Mae Fraser. Throughout the house you can see vintage photos of this prominent Georgia family.

The current owners and my hosts for three relaxing evenings are Mr. and Mrs. Davis. They purchased the home in 1972 and raised their family here. The Davis family has now converted the main floor into a quaint Tea Room for special events and dining area for the bed and breakfast guests. The upper floor has two guest suites and a small lounge area. The perfect size for a travelling family.

Starting with a cheery welcome sign on the front porch, the delightful Ms. Jackie makes you feel right at home and caters to your needs in true southern style. Each morning, coffee and breakfast was made specially for me. She even called me in advance to check on any food allergies or special requests. Our morning conversations about the local area, history of the home, and life in general were the best part of my trip. I enjoy making these connections. Ms. Jackie now feels like family and I look forward to a return trip.

I recommend that you seek out this charming home in Flemington for your stay in Liberty County Georgia. Conveniently located near the county’s historic sites and an easy day trip to Savannah, Jekyll Island, Darien, and other coastal destinations, it is also a great place to unwind and be pampered.

They are also on Facebook at Davis House Tea Room and Bed & Breakfast. Stop by and make sure you tell them I said “hi.”
