    Lovely cottage in the heart of Athens

    Our host was gracious and welcoming and the above garage cottage was really cute and comfortable. Everything was clean and tidy with all the needed amenities for a fun weekend. Walkable to five points in Athens but fairly quiet and serene considering we were in the heart of the town. Would definitely stay here again!

I came for an event at the Classic Center and this was close by (about 10 minutes depending on traffic) with parking and in an area with plenty of places to get food, fuel and necessities.

    Jennie and her husband have created an amazing and charming respite with their historic carriage house located behind their renovated main home which is over 100 years old. The carriage house is separate from the main house and the beautiful backyard zen garden can be enjoyed from the carriage house upstairs deck/entry, or, benches nestled underneath evergreen fir trees. The carriage house itself is very well maintained and the kitchen has everything that you could possible need. The main room is very comfortable and if you like TV in the down time then you are in for a treat with the HD Flat Screen TV - Wi-Fi is also available and we had no problem accessing and streaming. The bedroom boosts a very comfortable sleigh bed with a comfy duvet. Jennie was very accessible throughout our stay and made sure we had everything we needed. The neighborhood is located in the historic district and is very quiet. Look no further for a great stay in Athens! Thank you Jennie!! Diane and Michael

I would enthusiastically recommend this property to family and friends. There are tons of restaurants near by that we enjoyed and would recommend: Depalma's Italian Café, Cali and Tito's, and Last Resort. The owner's were very attentive and the neighborhood is quite...great for walking the dog. Hope to come back soon! -- Seth, Leslie, Lena and Mr. Jett

    cozy and comfortable carriage house apartment in the heart of Athens, GA

    5/5 Stayed Jul 6, 2016
    Submitted Jul 20, 2016

    This property is NOT for anyone who has difficulty ascending stairs (as carriage house implies) or who wants to spread out and cook lavish meals. This property IS for those who like simple but charming surroundings. This Pinterest-perfect carriage house is tastefully and comfortably furnished. There is separation between the living room and the master bedroom, an important consideration for a couple who has different sleeping habits. The kitchen is tiny but is suitable for making coffee, dip, or popcorn or for heating soup or leftovers. During our short stay, we enjoyed visiting local restaurants (as planned); therefore, the size of the kitchen was irrelevant. The partially screened porch allows a treehouse view of beautiful raised gardens. (We wish we had allowed more time for our morning coffee in this spot!) The property is close to area attractions, and Jennie, the homeowner, was pleasant, accessible, and helpful during our visit.
