The Thompson House and Gardens is located in the small quiet town of Bogart, Georgia, just minutes from Georgia Square Mall, downtown Athens, its quaint cafés, antique shops, and of course the University of Georgia.
The House was built in 1880 by Mr. and Mrs. Thompson and is considered a vintage Victorian farm house. The home remained in the Thompson family for over 100 years until On Guest transformed it into a beautiful and unique setting for weddings, receptions, and social gatherings. The Thompson House and Gardens embraces nature and elegance at its finest as demonstrated by its ever-changing display of color and fragrance. The inviting wraparound porch offers guests a place to sit and marvel at the meticulously maintained grounds and experience the serenity and tranquility of the garden’s soothing water feature. Guests may even get a glimpse of butterflies whimsically fluttering atop the gardens flora. All the while, you may be serenaded by the romantic sound of a train rumbling along just outside the grounds of the garden, bringing you back to a simpler time.
The Thompson House and Gardens has two venues for your consideration. They include the exquisitely appointed Main House featuring a 4,000 square feet Banquet Hall that can accommodate up to 250 guests. The Garden area is the second option. Events held at either location will leave your guests with a feeling of true southern Victorian sophistication.
