Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
**Still booking! Most state forests & parks remain open, biking & cycling are considered safe, so long as you keep your distance from others. And we are, as always, cleaning thoroughly between guests and disinfecting surfaces.**

You’ll love Creekside Cottage because of the beautiful view, the coziness, the convenient location! Pets welcome with an additional $25 cleaning fee. With three bedrooms, it accommodates up to five guests. Thirty miles from Hocking Hills State Park.

The space
Creekside Cottage is a quiet, private gem nestled in the Appalachian foothills in a wooded country setting, only a 5 minute drive from Ohio University. Built in 1928, the cottage has three bedrooms and a central living area which combines a sitting area with a fully equipped kitchen. The bedrooms (one with a full bed, one with two twins, one with one twin bed) are equipped with quality mattresses and all linens are provided. Tastefully decorated, you'll find an extensive library of classic novels, historical biographies, photo illustrations, etc. Window AC and central heating will keep you comfortable no matter the season. There's also a large deck with porch swing and outdoor furniture, a fire pit, and a hot tub (very nice for relaxing at night and watching stars, which are GREAT here!)

Guest access
Guests have the cottage all to themselves, including full access to the hot tub, fire pit, yard, and laundry facilities. Check-in is automated, so you may arrive whenever you like and come and go as you please. Parking is by the road, about 80 feet from the cottage.

Other things to note
We assess a $25 cleaning fee to guests who bring a pet; however, Airbnb does not include that fee when you book. If you will be bringing any pets, we will send you a request for the pet fee after your booking is confirmed. The fee applies only once per stay, not per night or per pet.

Parking is about 80 feet from the cottage, near the road; it is not possible to pull right up to the cottage. Luggage must be carried from the parking area to the cottage. The parking area is also separated from the cottage by a wooden privacy fence.

Cellular signal is weak at the cottage but functional.

Sales tax is included in our prices.

Location

Athens, Ohio, United States

The cottage is just two miles from the Ohio University campus by car, bike, or foot, and the same distance from Court Street, where you'll find many of Athens' bars and restaurants, especially alumni favorites. It's also just outside of the city part of Athens - neighbors are not close and trees and hills surround the cottage affording true privacy. To the north and east of Athens is Stroud's Run/Dow Lake, a great place to hike, birdwatch, or generally enjoy nature. There's also a killer rails-to-trails bike path running through town, several breweries, a cider house, a few wineries in Athens County, one of Ohio's best coffeehouses (some insist it is THE best!,) a great farmer's market, lots of healthy local food, live music, VERY nice people, special events year round... We love it here, and we hope you will, too. If there's anything specific you'd like to do or see, just ask!

I'm an Ohio University graduate who never left. I love the area, the people, and the enlightenment of a college town. I love hitting the farmer's market, and welcoming new and returning guests to my cottage! If you need any tips on what to do, see, or eat while visiting, just ask. I know all the good hiking spots, restaurants, and unique things Athens has to offer.

During your stay
Creekside is very private, tucked away in the woods on its own little piece of acreage and separated from the parking area by a wooden privacy fence. I will call you on the day you arrive to welcome you and make sure you have everything you need or answer any questions you may have, but unless you prefer it or it is necessary, you may not see me at all.
