Super CLEAN! We now have WiFi. Please, no parties. An all wheel drive car is best because our house is down a 1/4 mile private gravel drive. We do not plow snow because of the gravel so if a storm is coming, there is room to park at the storage units at the start of the drive. We are seconds to Athens, great 100 year old historic Athens farm house. We have completely remodeled this house with new about everything. We still have the original oak wood floors and oak trim. The bathrooms and kitchen are completely modernized. We do not have a tub but we have a shower incorporated with the 1.5 baths, a half bath downstairs and a full bath upstairs. We have added a new washer and dryer. All of the furniture and mattresses are new. This house wants you to stay there!
Please note that we have a Roku flat screen tv so bring your passwords!.
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights, over thankagiving 2020. It's was a little tricky to find, but this property is a sleeper perky husband. The outside looks standard, inviting but not flashy. When we went inside we were overjoyed at what we found, the pictures do not do it justice. Everything is updated in the kitchen and bathrooms, the woodwork everywhere makes it feel so homey, the couch is perfect for relaxing, and the bed was comfy. The Wi-Fi was fast, which is always nice. The house is less than a 10 minute drive to Ohio University and about 30-45 minutes from the lovely hiking in Hocking Hills Yes, the freeway is loud. But earplugs were in the bedrooms if you wanted to use them. I would only change 2 things about the house. First, the living room needs a few blankets or throws, it can get chilly in there at night. Second, a tankless water heater would make steamy showers even better.
Close to OU! Nice updated clean house.
Extremely clean place. Exactly as it was described. Very close to the road but the vegetation around the house makes it private.
Overall, the place was great. Well-stocked kitchen with a Keurig and K Cups. Comfortable furniture throughout the house. With no WiFi or cable, the nice selection of DVDs gave us a great way to unwind at the end of the day. Knocking off one star for two reasons. First, it's much closer to the highway than I expected, so it was quite noisy (though there were ear plugs left in the bedrooms which we greatly appreciated Secondly, the AC didn't cool the upstairs where the bedrooms are. We were here during a 90+ heat spell, but the upstairs was uncomfortably warm while the first floor was almost too cold since we had the AC on a cooler temp hoping to cool the upstairs. Still, highly recommend if you're visiting Athens!
We got very lucky with this last minute booking. The house was spotless, and very private. Recently remodeled throughout. Communication with the owners was also a breeze. Perfect for our weekend get-away to enjoy Athens.
