With his education focused on marketing, Trey began his career in property development.  But growing up in a hospitality family, he continued to help with multiple Mackey House events.  Guiding the company with contemporary marketing strategies, Trey now continues the vision of his grandfather and mother to create one of the finest event venues in the south.

Evidence of Trey’s enthusiasm is noticeable by his commitment to improving the grounds and enhancements of the farm.  Providing the best guest experience through modern amenities coupled with traditional southern style continues to be an important focus. Trey believes in developing new business strategies and reaching the destination clients in unique ways. He lives by the life motto “If you always do what you always did, you will get what you always got.”-Albert Einstein

In his free time Trey enjoys boating and being on the water.  Fitness, focus, and financials are his preferred reading material!

My job at the Mackey House is a little bit of everything. I help implement and maintain new technologies, network infrastructure, visual media, security, HVAC, and analytics to name a few. You can always find me ready to go and set the scene on event day.

I grew up in Savannah and started working at The Mackey House around the age of 12 with my father. I’m a musician and have traveled and lived all around the US. I was in ministry for 10 years and because of this experience I have a passion for bringing people together and it is the core of what I do.


Laura and Fred were both born in Savannah, GA

They were high school sweethearts who married in 1969. Recently, they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal at The Mackey house. They have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.

Fred served in the Navy and spent many years in real estate and together they opened a ballet school and childcare center in her parents beachside rental home. In the 1980’s they owned and operated 6 childcare centers. Today ABC Childcare is the oldest privately owned childcare center in Savannah. They still own and operate it today.

The Mackey House was born when the Mackey’s eldest daughter got married at their dream home before they even had a chance to move in. They immediately knew that their dream home and their love of entertaining was a perfect match.

The Mackey house was built on part of Laura’s grandfathers 400 acre dairy farm that she inherited from them in the 1970’s

Laura and Fred are very much involved in the day to day running of The Mackey House and are often found hosting events. They want people to feel at home when they are here. They are very attuned to southern hospitality and never meet a stranger.

Businesses they have run:

  • Beach Rentals
  • Flipping properties
  • Limo service
  • Summer Day Camp Childcare
  • Ballet school
