“Bonnie and Robert were wonderfully kind and attentive whenever we needed anything. Their home is beautiful! They made us (my 2 kids and I) feel comfortable enough to cook in their beautiful kitchen. Their dogs and cat were an extra special treat for us . They were so sweet. I wish we had more time to explore the trails in their neighborhood. Bonnie made great suggestions.for activities and dining. Lovely place and couple.”

We know you’ll enjoy the peaceful and serene environment of The Ivywood Barn. From the comfy king size bed, coffee on the large deck, picking blueberries right off the bushes when in season, cozy robes, the patio, fire pit and convenience to Athens and UGA, The Ivywood Barn might be just what you’re looking for. An Athens favorite for breakfast, Mama’s Boy, is less than a mile away. And, How ‘Bout Them Dawgs!, we’re only a short 5 mile drive to Sanford Stadium.
“The Ivywood Barn is the sweetest, cutest little getaway spot. I had my wedding there this week and I couldn’t be more pleased with how gorgeous and welcoming the setting was. Emily is right next door and so quick to respond to any question, request or need you may have. Her hospitality made our wedding and 3 night stay so special and memorable. We will be regulars here when we just need a little cottage getaway for sure!!”
