In the summer of 2017 we bought our dream home—a historic fixer upper—in Columbus, Georgia near Fort Benning. Two weeks after closing, the Army told Joe his Ranger Regiment was being deployed to Afghanistan. We had no idea what to do with our new home, until a friend suggested we rent it to other military families. We gave it a try, and we LOVED sharing our home! Military friends began asking us to set up and manage their homes as rentals, too. So in 2018, we opened Patriot Family Homes. 

As we moved around with the Army, Patriot Family Homes grew to five cities and over 50 homes. We're still growing today as we and our network of military spouse property managers move to new locations. Our guest base has grown too. In addition to serving military families, we are happy to host business professionals, university visitors, sports fans, and groups celebrating special events. Our homes are comfortable and family-friendly (most are pet-friendly!), and we treat our guests like family. When you stay with Patriot Family Homes, going away feels like coming home. 

We hope to see you soon!
