Where you’ll be

Athens, Ohio, United States

When we first moved into this neighborhood, we felt like we'd moved into a state park. Trees and wildlife abound! You are likely to see deer up close and personal as well as all types of wildlife that is attracted to water. We have a heron that makes our pond its home.

My husband and I are retired educators and active artists. Airbnb provided us with enough additional income to retire in order to focus on our own creative endeavors. Between teaching and raising kids, we also built this house from the ground up (I say “we,” but Mark actually did most of the building:) Throughout our lives we have enjoyed hosting friends, family, and students' families who visit from around the world. We also enjoy traveling and meeting new people. The kids eventually grew up and built lives elsewhere, and we were left with a big house that neither of us wanted to move away from; therefore, we turned a section of the house into a rentable space. The apartment is attached to our house but is very private and has a separate entrance. We are always happy to assist our guests (we are friendly), but we also respect your privacy. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance during your stay, and never hesitate to contact me with questions before your arrival. Mark and I hope you will enjoy your stay at Water's Edge.

During your stay

We are more than happy to help you with just about anything you need! Simply text or walk on down around the deck to our front door. We are equally happy to leave you alone if that's what you'd prefer!
