Historic Plantation with Hunting & Recreational Land For Sale in Pickensville, AL Owl Creek Plantation Let me take you on a journey. A trip back in time. An excursion to a plantation unaware of the chaos of 2020. A place where the road ends and the enchantment of a simpler existence begins. Let me take you to Owl Creek Plantation. Owl Creek is located on the AL/MS boundary in Pickens County, Alabama, just East of Macon, Mississippi. The yellow brick road truly does end at Owl Creek. When the lodge comes into view, it’s hard not to pull over on the lakeshore and take it in. Perfectly situated on the water's edge, with 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, screened porches, massive dining and entertaining areas, and sunset views that are otherworldly, Owl Creek Lodge grabs your heart from first glance. The lodge looks as though it too was created “in the beginning,” like it just belongs.  Additionally, in the not too shabby guest house on the North end of the lake, you’ll find 3 more bedrooms with another 2.5 baths. Owl Creek can easily sleep 22 guests comfortably and has not only been a family retreat for over 70 years, it has been the site of many weddings and other social functions. If, and that’s a big “if”, you can drag yourself away from the lodge, you can begin to find your way around the 3,040 acres of unbelievable serenity and beauty. The improved road system winds its way through massive hardwood stands along the majestic Tenn-Tom River. Strategically located throughout the property are wildlife fields overflowing with deer and turkeys, purposefully flooded cypress brakes for waterfowl and many deer stands only in need of an afternoon hunter. The hunting is so good in fact, several years ago the property generated over $200k in revenue from sold hunts. The timber component of Owl Creek is mainly mature hardwood. There are a few scattered areas of managed loblolly pine creating habitat throughout the property. A recent timber cruise is available upon request and reflects a timber value of $4.2M. A new owner looking to add more habitat and recover some of the purchase price could easily take advantage of the timber market in the area. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, you stumble upon Camp Duke. Camp Duke is on the southern end of the property, isolated from life. It’s the retreat within the retreat. Camp Duke IS social distancing. I can’t describe Camp Duke, you have to experience Camp Duke. I’ve been blessed in my career to work with wonderful families and some unbelievable properties. They have all been special. Owl Creek Plantation sets the bar high for all the properties before, and all the properties yet to come.

They then built a 2-room log cabin overlooking the spring-fed lake. The cabin was built with timbers harvested from the lake site, hewn and milled right there on the property. The family lived here and worked the land through the mid-century years and eventually built the main house out near FM 130. During those years the land took on many different uses from harvesting timber, to sharecropping, then to raising cattle, and eventually planted in pine timber. Along with the original cabin, which has been updated and added onto throughout the years, the original "potato shed" can still be found near the shop SW of the lake. This shed was built to store potatoes, corn, and used as a smokehouse as well. Like most centennial ranches, this one has a unique fingerprint of its predecessors, but plenty of room for new memories for years to come.

Native forbs such as beautyberry, green briar, pokeweed, Chickasaw plum, goldenrod, muscadine, and other prime forage can be found across the ranch, mostly in the successional regrowth along the abundant edge and amongst the mature pine. In addition to forbs, soft mast such as wild plum and persimmon are also common. The phenomenal cover also provides habitat for Eastern Turkeys and other animals. There are several prepared food plot areas, and many more that can be easily developed to supplement the native habitat the ranch provides. The property's water assets provide waterfowl hunting opportunities as well. Along with duck hunting, the 29+/- acre lake also provides incredible bass fishing.

Water One of the outstanding features of the Lakes of Danbury are the outstanding riparian water rights for pumping out of Austin Bayou. There are over 622 acre feet of deeded water rights per year, and there are two newly designed pump stations with diesel pumps set up to accomplish this. It is virtually impossible to gain these type of water rights in Texas anymore and they are very valuable. Austin Bayou is the eastern boundary of the property, and there is over 1.5 miles of frontage on the bayou. This bayou runs year-round and runs into Bastrop Bay downstream from Lakes of Danbury. There is a new water well for the lodge and entertainment areas centrally located between the lakes. Electricity: Electricity is found throughout the property, including access to the fishing lakes to allow for keeping trolling motors charged. Minerals: None available and there is no production. Other: There are few recreational properties that have the potential for income that can compare to the Lakes of Danbury. The vaunted name still carries a real cachet in the sporting world around the country, and the right buyer can take advantage of its historic potential.

Hidden along the banks of the Neches River on a historic high point is Bear Mans Bluff Ranch. The stewards of this ranch have transformed the land into an idyllic family retreat that features the highest end of authentic Texas ranch lifestyle. The main lodge sits overlooking the river, surrounded by massive oaks and cypress trees. Sitting on the porch carries owners and guests to a simpler time, while offering extensive comfort and convenience. Miles of trails, a beautiful bass lake, a river fishing dock and multiple other amenities make this ranch one of the finest offerings to be found in Texas. Location: The ranch is located 6 miles north of Silsbee Texas and is located at the end of the road for the ultimate in privacy. Habitat: Bear Mans Bluff Ranch is place where multiple habitats converge; from longleaf pine forests, cypress filled bayous, and hardwood bottomlands. The mixture of tree species is incredible, dominated by tremendous cypress and red oaks, but includes other old growth trees on the ranch such as water oaks, elms, dogwoods, magnolias, gum and pine, just to name a few. Years of clearing and planting native trees and grasses and engineering the roads and water supplies around the ranch is truly unique and amazing. The surrounding properties are primarily large wooded tracts and no other structures are visible off of the property. Across the Neches river, the land is all part of thousands of acres of the Big Thicket National Preserve. A unique feature of this ranch is that during the winter, much of the property is surrounded by water among the cypress trees as it winds it way throughout the area. During the summer months, the water recedes and the understory becomes a beautiful grassland which is mowed and maintained. Approximately 180 acres of the ranch has had most of the understory removed to create a park like setting with large trees and good grasses. The northern half of the ranch has remained relatively untouched and is dominated by pines and thicker brush creating a privacy boundary and refuge for wildlife. Wildlife: White-tailed deer are abundant on the property and during the winter months, it is a haven for migrating ducks finding refuge amongst the flooded timber. Eagles and Ospreys are common in the area and a multitude of shore birds make their home here. Other wildlife includes hogs, predators, and many species of song birds. Improvements: The housing complex all includes top of the line appliances, custom furniture, high ceilings, AV systems that are the absolute best, flat screens televisions all over the improvements, HVAC system, and immaculate landscaping everywhere. All the attention to detail really has to be seen to be appreciated. The main lodge at Bear Man Bluff Ranch is a custom Western Heritage style lodge (approx. 6,000 S.F.), using large scale elements with expansive decks and cypress beams. The lodge is positioned on the bluff overlooking the river and forest. The great hall in the lodge is a combination of living room and dining room with towering ceilings and exposed beams and ducts creating a dramatic setting. The room includes a large custom dining table, large stone fireplace and unique wooden bar. Next to the great hall is a full kitchen with gas stove and island layout with fine granite table tops. Accessed from the outside are three spacious bedrooms with full baths that all lead out to outdoor porches. All the bedrooms are impeccably furnished and the bathrooms all have decorative sinks with fixtures. Note; the housing on the property did NOT flood during Harvey. Just next door to the main lodge is the similarly constructed two story Guest House (approx. 6,000 S.F.) . Upon entry downstairs is a spacious dining and living area connecting four downstair bedrooms each with their own full bath. A fully equipped kitchen includes all updated appliances and a breakfast bar. Just outside the living space is a covered porch which is the main entrance to the downstairs quarters. Upstairs is accessed by stairs on the outside of the building and includes two spacious bedrooms with full baths and is centered by a living area with a small kitchen. The grounds surrounding the two main structures is beautifully fenced and includes a 5,000 s.f. outdoor pavilion with a historic large fireplace (This restored fireplace was from an original structure that had been built on the property many years ago), built in grill, television and stereo system. A large dock overlooking the river has classic wooden furniture and a gas fire pit for romantic evenings on the water. There is also a two car garage with upstairs storage located just outside of the compound. Other improvements include; guest house/managers house separated from the main compound. full barn and shop with 200 amp service. skeet range with two Lincoln throwers on a tower. fenced in orchard with irrigation. three bay cedar constructed boat house. concrete boat ramp to the river and outdoor picnic pavilion overlooking the river. immaculate granite roads throughout the property. The equipment to operate the property includes, bulldozers, tractors w/ implements, an excavator, dump truck, tree spade and dozens of smaller implements and tools. The property also includes the requisite ranch toys such as golf carts, canoes, boats and other equipment to keep the entire family enjoying the great outdoors. Approximately 78 acres on the northern border is under a Conservation Easement for continued protection and privacy. Water: The property lies on the bank of the Neches River and a tributary known as Bear Man Lake. Running through the middle of the property is Little Black Creek forming the environment for the hundreds of large cypress trees on the property. The bridge running over the creek to access the lodge was engineered to create another lovely lake that contains catfish and crappie. A four acre trophy bass lake on the property includes a fishing dock, boat ramp and has been stocked with Coppernose Bluegill, Redear Sunfish and a mixture of pure strain Florida bass and F-1 hybrids. A 250’ deep water well provides all of the water for the irrigation and keeping the bass lake full. A smaller well is utilized for the homes. Electricity: Electric service is conveniently located on the property with many of the lines buried to retain the open feel of the ranch. History: Bear Mans Bluff is a known high point along the Neches River that was originally settled before the Civil War and was utilized as a harbor for trade with boats moving up and down the river. Steamboats would dock at the bluff to exchange fuel wood for various sundries and goods from traders who travelled the Old Spanish trail which crossed the river nearby. During the Civil War, the property was known to harbor mystery men who kept hidden but commonly left out bear meat for the steamboat captains who would leave bread, bacon and other staples. These men became known as the “bear men” and ultimately the area became Bear Mans Bluff. In the early 20th century, the property was used as a ferry point to cross the river and was a busy port until it was later moved further downstream. Afterwards it became a recreational property known for its high point off of the river and several old lodges were built for entertaining many guests.
