One of the finest examples of a "Four Square" house in Thomasville, Serendipity Cottage was built in 1906 when this particular style of house was the latest rage.

Victorians had tired of the gingerbread of the Victorian era and were looking for a style that was simpler. The large entrance hall and spacious open stairway, built without newel posts, sets it apart. Elmer Mack, a very wealthy lumberman from the north built his home for his wife, son, daughter and himself. All the lumber used in the home was hand chosen by Mr. Mack.

Large oak columns divide the living room and the reception hall. Beautiful ash pocket doors separate the other rooms. Window treatments in the living room and the reception hall have been opened up to display the original leaded glass windows. The dining room's oak paneling is topped with a grooved plate rail made especially to display trophies. These plates and trophies were awarded to Mr. Mack for a prize bull that he transported all over the country in one of his private railroad cars that he kept in the round-house at the train station in Thomasville.

The second floor was kept strictly for sleeping and servant's quarters. Four of the bedrooms, each with a private bath, have been converted to guest bedrooms.

Mr. Mack and his family prospered in Thomasville, enjoyed life in their spacious home, hosting numerous dinners and parties, entertaining friends and family, even, it is rumored, being the first man in Thomasville to own an automobile. The Macks lived in the house until 1929, when the stock market crashed and Mr. Mack was unable to recover his fortune, which was kept in out-of-town banks. At that time he gave the house to a relative who opened a boarding house for the faculty of a private ladies academy. Mr. Mack moved to Florida, where he made another fortune in cypress.


Kate's Room:

Spacious quarters of the original owner's maid, Kate's Room faces a quiet side street. A four poster double bed with hand-crocheted canopy and a large bath with shower and tub completes this beautiful room. Color cable TV also.

Victorian Rose Room:

This room is surrounded by wicker furniture, little hints of romance; from the soft pink walls trimmed with a wallpaper covered in roses, to the framed "Love" needlework picture over the fireplace. Queens sized bed. Color cable TV. Cupid's cherubs in the Bathroom.

Country Garden Room:

Love brass beds, antique trunks, teddy bears and pine furniture? Then this room is for you! Wonderful queen size brass bed! The room is the original Master Bedroom of the house. Features Color cable TV and VCR with movies available.

Sara's Room:

Sara's Guest Room takes a step back into time when Victorian Ladies sat in front of their marble dressers, brushing their hair, admiring themselves and writing in their diary. Queen sized bed.


Breakfast at Serendipity Cottage is a wonderfully relaxed and pleasant beginning to your day. A Full or Continental+ breakfast is served on the Sun porch or in the dining room.
