Perhaps two of the most attractive qualities of coastal living are good weather and proximity to the water. The Ford Plantation has both.

Winters here are relatively short, lasting from December through February. Winter temperatures are mild, with average daytime highs in the low 60s and average overnight lows in the low 40s. Otherwise, it’s typically warm and sunny for the other nine months of the year.

The Ford Plantation sits right on the banks of the Ogeechee River approximately 20 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. A private marina affords members convenient access to inshore and offshore fishing opportunities, and guided fishing trips can be easily arranged through the staff guides at Ogeechee Outfitters, the on-property source for fishing and boating supplies as well as a number of popular outdoor apparel brands.

Months of good weather and close proximity to the water are major contributors to the strong connections made between members. There’s no shortage of front porches for sitting, paths for walking and horseback riding, and social events for attending. From fancy formal events at The Main House to community oyster roasts during months that end in R, there’s always something to do at The Ford Plantation.

Opportunities for culture and entertainment aren’t confined to grounds of The Ford Plantation itself. Historic Savannah, GA, known as the Hostess City of the South, is located just 20 miles north. Savannah has been called One of America’s Most Romantic Cities by numerous sources, and it consistently ranks as one of the South’s Most Beautiful Cities. The city’s historic architecture mingles with fashionable downtown boutiques, microbreweries and art galleries. Innovative restaurants, unique attractions, and a vibrant nightlife add another dimension to this charming southern city.

The beach is popular with locals and tourists alike, and it is a favorite spot for families of all ages.

At The Ford Plantation, you’ll find great weather, be located near the water, and live in the heart of a region famous for its history, hospitality, and local seafood. If that’s not the essence of coastal living, what is?
