Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015
We spent two wonderful nights in the Jolly House in mid-June, 2015. Two of us flew to Atlanta from Chicago, and two from Sacramento. We rented cars in Atlanta and drove to Fitzgerald to attend our annual Boggus Family Reunion. Many others of our family members came in from out of town, but none of them had the special accommodations that we enjoyed in the Jolly House! We loved waking to the chickens telling us, "Good morning!" Early morning walks towards downtown were also enjoyable.
There are so many interesting restaurants and cute shops, and we especially liked viewing other charming turn-of-the-century homes with their pretty landscaped properties in the neighborhood.

The house is just adorable. It has retained so much of its original charm, and it's clear that the home holds a special place in the heart of the proprietor. Fitzgerald will be our destination for many more future family reunions, and our plan is to book this special house - WAY in advance - for each one!
