CED Marine is pleased to announce our Second Annual Exclusive Event for selected Dealers. Our Dealer Show will take place at the picturesque SouthWind Plantation estate, in the South region of Georgia,  conveniently situated just one hour north of Tallahassee. SouthWind Plantation, founded by Tim Smith in 1994, has become the epitome of premier hunting experiences. Originally spanning 170 acres, it has since grown to over 6,100 acres of prime hunting terrain. Offering luxurious lodging across ten state-of-the-art lodges and the newly constructed Smith Station corporate facility, SouthWind welcomes guests year-round.

Recognized as one of only twenty-four Orvis Endorsed Wing-Shooting facilities in the US since 2005, SouthWind boasts exceptional hunting opportunities for quail, eastern gobblers, trophy whitetail, and more. Their commitment to providing unparalleled service extends beyond hunting, with offerings including cattle production, row crop farming, and top-quality hunting puppies from our Orvis Endorsed Dog Breeding kennel. At SouthWind, they prioritize building lasting relationships with their guests, who become part of our cherished “SouthWind Family.” Owner Tim Smith’s dedication to creating a welcoming atmosphere sets us apart, ensuring every visitor feels at home.

ENJOY THESE FINE AMENITIES WITH YOUR STAY!

The Main Lodge

After a long day in the fields, the best way to unwind is coming home to a cozy lodge that has every amenity you desire. Located on 634 acres of pristine hunting property, our Main Lodge offers just that. Large and small parties are welcomed here. With 6 bedrooms and 7 baths, the lodge comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests. After getting warm by the fire and enjoying a signature cocktail from the wet bar, take in the view of the property’s deck where scenic beauty spills for several acres.

The Callahan Lodge

Named after a family who championed land conversation and initiated many trade opportunities, the Callahan Lodge sits on seven acres of natural beauty. With four bedrooms and four baths, the lodge can comfortably host up to eight guests who are ready to relax in a comfy and cozy environment. Along with unmatched views of the property, the Callahan Lodge also comes with seven satellite televisions, a wet bar and an outdoor fire pit. If you’re a pool aficionado, the place also has a table ready for late nights and good banter. We recommend making your stay extra special and adding in a private dining experience. This lodge is also handicap accessible, with ramps and bathrooms with railing.

The Boat House

At SouthWind Plantation, we believe the best trips are experienced through the beauty of the land and the people we share it with. Nestled deep in the back of the property and overlooking its own fully stocked bass pond, the Boat House is the perfect retreat for you and your family and friends for a little relaxation. Featuring warm and welcoming hardwoods, modern appliances, and 2 bedrooms each with 2 queen beds. Although you’ll be spending a lot of time on the water or on the private dock with its own boat slip, there’s an indoor and an outdoor fireplace for when you’re ready to settle down for the night. As a recipient of the 2017 and 2019 Orvis Wing-Shooting Lodge of the Year, Southwind Plantation is always looking for ways to make your trips more memorable and more relaxing.
