      Nestled on a beautiful piece of property just east of Twin City is one of the premier hunting plantations in the state.

      Founded by Jack, Jerry, and Ike Webb in 2007, Beaver Creek Plantation is known for its quail hunting, lodge, overnight facilities, and the family like atmosphere that has been created by the three brothers.
      Many local hunters enjoyed the original Beaver Creek which was established in 1998 and located on 3000 acres outside of Cobbtown in Tattnall County. The Webbs and their partners sold that property to the developers of Victory Lane in 2007.
      After the sale was completed, the Webbs began work on Beaver Creek Plantation - this time on 1,200 acres of family land.
      "Twin City is our home, and we decided to build Beaver Creek Plantation on our land," Ike Webb said. "We have leased an adjoining 800 acres or so which gives us roughly 2,000 acres. We have plenty of room to hunt and fish."
      Webb said his brother Jack sketched the main building - the lodge - on a napkin.
      "Jack said this is what it needed to look like, and we all agreed," he said. "We had a small lodge at the original Beaver Creek, so we learned a lot about the flow of the building. I think that really helped in the design of this building."
      The main lodge is 10,000 square feet which includes a large gathering area, dining room, commercial grade kitchen, two upstairs conference rooms, pro shop, and wet bar. Sitting on a manmade lake, the lodge is one of three buildings on the plantation. The other two are a sleeping lodge (which can accommodate 30 people) and a two bedroom cabin.
     "The Three W Lodge has twelve bedrooms with bathrooms," Webb said. "Each room has two twin beds. Upstairs there are two bonus rooms. One for playing a good game of pool and watching the football game on the wide screen TV, and the other is a poker room set up for multiple games at one time."
      While the accommodations are clearly top notch, that is not the main draw according to Webb.
      "Members of Beaver Creek come to hunt, and the Plantation is known for having some of the best bird dogs around," Webb said. "My brother Jerry, who serves as manager of the plantation, has over 45 years of experience with dogs and hunting. The dogs are just great, and members and their guests always have a good time hunting whether its quail, turkeys, pheasant, or deer."
      Lazar Brown is the chef and hospitality manager for Beaver Creek. She said she had to learn a little bit about "down home" cooking when she took the position in 2007.
      "I am a trained chef who really didn't have that much experience with southern cooking, but I learned quickly," she said. "We prepare lunch everyday, and then have certain meals that we will cook at night, and when guests are here. I have to admit that I love fried quail and fried dove."
      Brown also prepares food for special events, including weddings. "We don't have weddings here during hunting season," Ike Webb said. "The facilities are here for our members during that time, but when hunting season is over, we do host weddings. We have had some beautiful weddings here, and Lazar has done a great job with the food."
      With a membership that includes people from all over the country, some of Beaver Creek's biggest fans are local residents. Durden Banking Company president and CEO G. W. Johnson said he has known the Webbs and their families for the last several decades.
      "They are great neighbors and care so much about our local community, just like their parents," Johnson said. "Jerry, Jack, and Ike are quick to help out local farmers, businesses, residents, whatever they can do for their neighbor, they will do it. I am so pleased with Beaver Creek. They do a great job there. It really is a hidden treasure."
      Webb said there are still memberships available. "We seem to add members by word-of-mouth mostly," he said. "People come out, relax, and have a good time. Then they tell their friends, and that is how we have grown."
      Brown she feels very blessed to work at Beaver Creek.
       "When I came to work here, I thought it was going to have three bosses," Brown said. "It doesn't feel that way at all. It is like working for a big family, and having three additional fathers. This is just a wonderful place."
