Our carriage house—completed Aug. 2018—is just a 15-minute walk to the heart of Normaltown and Piedmont ARMC. Enjoy the bakery, coffee shops, casual restaurants, & the best bars in town!

It's a quick ride to downtown—2 mi. to the Arch and 2.5 to Sanford Stadium. Enjoy the quiet of a friendly neighborhood with the convenience of being close to UGA!

Features a private bedroom with king-sized bed with new mattresses and a living room with a new queen-sized sofa bed. 2 parking spots on site!

The space
This carriage house is a labor of love, featuring local artwork and tucked away in the old growth neighborhoods of Normaltown. This is new construction, completed in August 2018. We built this to host our families, friends and fellow travelers, so we've tried hard to create a relaxing, cozy and comfortable getaway for you!

Guest access
You will have access to the carriage house which is above our 2 car garage and has it's own private entry. We will share driveway access but there is space on our driveway for you to park 2 cars/SUVs without any of us being blocked in. Our main house is a separate structure on the front of the property but we will park our cars in the garage.

Other things to note
Please note it is not a full kitchen. There are plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, a cutting board, knives, can opener, coffee maker, dishwasher, microwave and full refrigerator/freezer- but NO pots and pans, stove or oven.

We do live in a quiet part of town near lots of families, so please observe quiet hours from 10pm-7am. The carriage house is above our two car garage. You may be able to hear us open the garage doors at times- we do try to keep this at a minimum and it is fairly quiet if you are inside the carriage house.

Location

Athens, Georgia, United States

As unforgettable a city as Athens is, it is our (admittedly biased) opinion that Normaltown best captures the many facts that makes Athens such a vibrant community: wide streets, massive trees, quirky citizens, local color—Normal Bar, Hi-Lo, the Old Pal, and Ike & Jane to name a few—and just the casual hipness that makes Normaltown...just a little abnormal. This part of Normaltown, locally known as General Hospital, is, as it sounds, sandwiched between Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center and UGA's Health Sciences campus (formerly the Navy School). It's an incredibly walker-friendly neighborhood given its low-traffic streets and extensive sidewalks, which will take you from our house directly down to Prince Avenue and the heart of Normaltown.

Neighborhood highlights:
-IKE & JANE BAKERY: donuts, breakfast fare, great coffee, and fun (but tight) atmosphere
-HI-LO LOUNGE: unbelievable hotdogs and expansive craft beer menu (this is where local brewers come to drink)
-HALF SHEPPARD: local cheese shop that includes a small menu of incredible sandwiches, soups and salads, great place to pop in to grab a few snacks, also has a small selection of wine and beer to take to go
-AUTOMATIC PIZZA: an old gas station on the corner of Oglethorpe & Broad with, we think, the city's best pizza (they deliver to nearby Normal Bar too)
-NORMAL BAR: perennial Flagpole favorite for best bar and best bartender (Bain Mattox)
-MARTI'S AT MIDDAY: cheery take-out shop for Southern-style breakfast and classic sandwiches, pimento cheese, and homemade pita chips
-THE OLD PAL: super cool, classy, moody space with mixologists ready to make you the perfect Old Fashioned
-AGUA LINDA: solid Mexican food and fun outdoor patio
-J's BOTTLE SHOP: perhaps the best package store in the city

We are a 30-something couple living in our favorite city- Athens, GA! We can't get enough of everything that makes Athens such a quirky, fun, engaging town. The food, craft beer, UGA football, community and front porch sitting make us want to stay here forever!
