Clean And Roomy Contemporary House, 3 Blocks To Auburn University

Auburn, Alabama

This comfortable architect-built mid century home is just 3 blocks to Auburn University, and 5 blocks to downtown Auburn. With ample parking at the front of the property, you can walk to the stadium and downtown restaurants and bars... no parking worries.

Located on a quiet wooded street with a neighborhood feel. The hardwood floors, wood trim and windows show off a mid-century style. Front room, TV room with HD flat screen, dining room with table that extends to seat 10, screened-in porch, and front and back decks create many areas for socializing.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs, 2 with queen beds, and a third with a double bed. Downstairs the couch in the front room makes into a bed, and there is an air mattress that will fit in either the 1st or 3rd bedrooms. The beds are dressed in crisp white linens with down comforters and down pillows. Two full bathrooms, one upstairs, the other down.

This house is outfitted with new furnishings, linens, dishes, cookware, and a remodeled kitchen. There is a BBQ on the back deck, and a second dining table on the screened porch. As well, a Keurig style coffee maker, coffee, tea, and bottled water, add to the comfort of your stay.

This is our second home, we use it several times a year to visit our daughter and her family who live in Auburn. When we are not here, we like to offer it to visitors that come to Auburn for games, graduation and other activities. We are available by text or phone during your stay, but if need be, our daughter is available for more immediate needs.

    Hare House was the perfect spot for us while visiting our daughter who is a student at Auburn University. We enjoyed coffee on the porch in the mornings and grilling/cooking a home cooked meal for our daughter and her roommates one evening! Great location! Close to downtown and the campus. Carolyn was very accommodating. Thank you for sharing Hare House. We’ll be back!

    Great visit over Thanksgiving, this house has everything you will need to make your visit a comfortable and enjoyable one. Kitchen was nicely stocked to meet all of our Thanksgiving cooking needs. Carolyn and her daughter have thought of everything - from labeling supplies in the pantry and closets to comfy bedding in each of the rooms. The inside is very clean, felt very comfortable staying for three nights. Location is just a few blocks from campus, an easy ride to the grocery store, our son’s off campus apartment and downtown Auburn. Carolyn was easy to work with and very responsive to all of my questions. Would recommend staying at Hare House.

    Carolyn was a dream to work with! As Auburn’s plans for graduation changed, Carolyn worked with us to accommodate our changing itinerary. When we arrived, the house was spotless, there were bottles of hand sanitizer and liquid soap provided, and supplies for doing laundry since we had just gotten off a plane. We had seriously considered canceling, and I’m so glad we didn’t. We felt totally comfortable in this great house and had the most fun celebrating our daughter’s graduation with plenty of room for our whole family, plus some of the kids’ college friends! Our son is still at Auburn so we will definitely be back at Hare House during the years he’s in school. Thanks so much for helping us make great memories! xo

    We really enjoyed this wonderful house. It was perfect for our small family trip, even though the weather was less than optimum during our stay. This house was a perfect location for our trip especially with the weather being wet. It allowed us to have a great time as a family even though we spent most of the trip indoors (something we wouldn't have been able to do in a hotel). The owner provided many supplies that made it a lot easier for a short trip. We enjoyed it so much that we will keep it in mind for our trip next year. Thanks so much for sharing your house with us we made some memories that we will remember for a long time.

    We had a great stay at Hare house. We were in town for a football game and the location could not be better. The house was very functional and very well decorated. The kitchen was well equipped (and having a grill was nice as we had great November weather). There was ample parking. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure with which to work. The entire group could not have been happier with the rental.

    First time going to a SEC Football game! There were 6 people in our group and this was my first VRBO reservation. Carolyn was awesome and reached out prior to our arrival to ensure we knew how to enter, etc. The house was very clean and we had a great time! Because it was 95+ degrees it was too hot to enjoy the porch. :( Thank you for making my first experience with a VRBO a great one!

    This house was exactly as it was described. You can’t beat the location. It is close enough to town and campus to walk. It was clean and comfortable and the beds were also comfortable. The house is older so the bathrooms are small, but that’s to be expected for a older home. We had a small A/C problem and the owner was very responsive. It was corrected within an hour of notifying her. Can’t get better service than that! We would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend the home.

    We were in Auburn for my son's wedding and stayed at the Hare House. Everything could not have been more perfect! The check-in process was effortless, and Carolyn was extremely helpful. The house is even more beautiful than the photos depict. We have stayed in a lot of VRBO properties, and the Hare House is one of the most well-equipped homes we have seen. There was not a single detail that was overlooked: comfortable beds, luscious linens, great towels, plenty of parking, and a fully-stocked kitchen. There was plenty of room for 5 adults. The home is in a beautiful neighborhood that is walking distance from downtown. We would definitely stay again! Thank you, Carolyn, for sharing your home with us!

    We were coming to Auburn to celebrate Thanksgiving. Our son's family lives there but I'm allergic to their cats. The kitchen looked a little small in the pictures and I wasn't sure we'd be able to pull it off but that kitchen is magic. We had everything we needed and it was spacious enough for several cooks to work at once on various dishes. The two living room spaces on opposite sides of the house were perfect because we had acoustic musicians jamming in one room and Jenga competitions in the other. The house was very clean. I usually get some asthma on our vacations, but not this time. The Scandinavian aesthetic was perfect. The Gee's Bend quilt prints were really welcoming since two in the family are quilters and had visited that community of quilters. The neighborhood was very quiet and we took many pleasant walks right out the front door. The owner was VERY helpful when I made a booking error and got terrible advice from a Home Away agent, which would have cost me a lot. She contacted them and fixed it. I'm so thankful, we got this lucky.

    The Hare House was the perfect house for a gameday rental! We had four couples total and the house had more than enough room - the fourth couple turned the front living space into their own bedroom with the air mattress provided! The house was clean and well appointed with everything you could possibly need, including K-Cups for morning coffee, a corn hole set and toilet paper for rolling Toomer's! The location is perfect as well - we were able to walk everywhere from Acre to Momma Goldberg's to Jordan Hare Stadium! We loved spending the morning on the screened in patio and the evening under the string lights! The beds were very comfortable and the bath towels were the most plush towels I've ever used! Overall, a wonderful stay! We would definitely rent the Hare House again and again!

    Very cute and comfortable house within walking distance of campus and local nightlife.

    This was our second time renting the Hare house and we cannot rave enough about this wonderful house and family (owners). We unexpectedly had to evacuate from our hometown for hurricane Florence and Carolyn was so kind to give us extra rental days at the front end with barely any notice. This house is the best location for any event at Auburn, but staying there nearly a week we found so much charm in the time we had in the town. The house has absolutely everything so well thought out we always feel so welcome. Thank you, beyond words, for another perfect visit.

    From the [prompt and intuitive] owner communications to the excellent location, cleanliness, layout, and set-up to the final check-out, this truly was a five-star experience. Our family stayed for a looong weekend, and wanted for nothing while we were here. This home was spotless, tastefully furnished, well-supplied - not just the basics, but with thoughtful touches such as charcoal, bottled water, ice, serving trays and bowls, plenty of crockery and silverware, feather mattress for the futon, and down comforters! Oh, did I mention the Keurig pods?! Awesome! The layout of both the home and the outside living areas (both screened and open-air) gave us plenty of comfortable choices to gather in small or larger groups.. We spent a great deal of time on the screened porch, a super gathering place no matter the weather. The beds were very comfortable, hot water plentiful, water pressure great, and the plush towels were greatly appreciated. My disabled daughter found the futon on the ground floor exactly what was needed - in a separate living area, away from TV and main house activities - when she needed to rest, and the ground floor bath+walk-in shower met her needs, as well. (Though she is disabled, she is not completely confined to a wheelchair, so the property description is accurate: This home is *not* wheelchair accessible, due to the entry stairs and narrow bathroom doorways.) The neighborhood and this property are quiet and lush with old-growth trees and plantings, yet very centrally located just a few blocks east of campus and Toomer's Corner. The location made it very convenient to get all around town, whether by car or on foot ... and it's on every delivery store's list. (Yes, you can get groceries delivered, too!) Staying at this home really enhanced our stay in Auburn. I recommend this property - and its owner - wholeheartedly!
