    I have nothing but great things to say about this house and this owner. The house was updated and clean. Communication from the owner was great. All pertinent information was organized and shared in a very timely manner. Will definitely stay there again if in the area.

    Wonderful property with convenient location to OU. House is equipped with all you need. Great kitchen that we prepared a Thanksgiving meal. Coffee bar with large mugs was a plus. The only slight downside is the location close to the main highway and next to a storage facility which was noisy.

    Great home to stay at! I would come back again.

    This home was just perfect for our OU visit. The owners thought of EVERYTHING you could imagine to make you feel right at home and make your visit enjoyable. Close to campus and dining choices. Athens transit is very close! The place is so clean and the owners so nice to work with! I would be comfortable renting any of their properties because it is clear they know how to do this rental thing right ;) plenty of parking. The big porch was our favorite hangout :)

    Our stay at 450 Richland Ave was perfect. The home was exactly as advertised, comfortable and convenient. I lived in Athens many years ago and this house was a classic Athens place and brought back fond memories. Don't hesitate to stay here.

    House was perfect. Mitch and Ann were great hosts. We hated to leave.

    Loved, loved, loved this house. It was the perfect distance to the university for our needs. Provided with a ton of amenities to make our stay feel like a real home, so much better than a hotel. Kitchen had ample dishes/cups, coffee was a such a plus. Loved the fireplace/heater for hanging out in the living room. Had a crazy family game night that went until 3 in the morning that never would have been possible without this wonderful house!

    Owners did a wonderful job of remodeling. House is stocked with everything you need, including thoughtful items such as a small sewing kit, deck of cards, all kitchen cookware, utensils, and more. Soft, large towels - better than hotel. Grocery store, bakery, and a couple of restaurants a three minute walk from the front door. A three minute drive to Ohio University campus, four minute drive to downtown. Or a leisurely 20 minute walk gets you there without having to get into your car. I highly recommend this house.

    Beautiful house!

    Owners have done a fantastic job with this home. I lived in this home my last year at Ohio University 25+ years ago and the renovation of this home cannot be beat. Owners have really thought of everything, down to black out blinds in bedrooms. Home, linens, kitchen, etc were all very clean and comfortable. Hot water heater went out during our stay and the owner arrived within minutes to check out the situation. Tank needed to be replaced, which wasn't possible over the weekend so he offered the use of another property he owns. We were well cared for, very happy with our stay and will be back! (Thank you Mitch!!)
