From US 17, turn east on GA highway 99 (beside the Courthouse). Travel approximately 1.5 miles, turn right onto St. Andrews Cemetery Road. (St. Andrews Cemetery historical marker) At the cemetery, turn left onto dirt road which leads to Ashantilly on your left.

There is also a gate off GA Highway 99, past the St. Andrews Cemetery Road. It is not easily seen – yet – but you may use it to come in by the new organic garden and the young long-leaf pine forest replanted fairly recently.

Please call 912-437-4473 to arrange a visit!
