The Skinny: As a young boy in post-war Germany, Bernhard Schneider watched American movies with the GIs who had taken up residence in his mother's hotel. So struck was he by bucolic depictions of the American South that in 1979, he purchased Henderson Village, this 3,500-acre farm in central Georgia. Over the years he acquired neighboring homes and incorporated them into a resort complex that now hosts corporate retreats and weddings. Marketed as a potential single-family home, the property boast 26 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, and world-class bird and game hunting. For the less shooting-inclined, there's a pool, tennis court, and business center.
