Thank you for staying with us while in Athens! As you can probably tell this is our house that we live in on a day in and day out basis. We rent it on the weekends for and here you are! We just ask that you treat the house and the neighbors with respect while you are here. Below are some tidbits of information that may help you during your stay

Food: Feel free to use anything in the refrigerator and pantries if you need anything extra. I try to have pancakes, eggs, bread, milk and juice on hand for guests if they want to make breakfast.

Television: We do not have cable but we do have Netflix, Amazon prime and a variety of apps to choose from. The television remote works on the Amazon Firestick, but has some limitation for some apps. If you are having problems you can download the amazon fire remote app for your smart phone and it will work. WIFI Password: 61277304

Neighbors: The listing is titled “Quiet Country Setting” and this is something that my neighbors value and hope you will as well. Noise travels well in the country and if you are outside being loud they will be able to hear you. Please keep noise to a minimum especially after dark. There have been instances where my neighbors have called the sheriff, this was embarrassing for me and has strained the relationship between myself and my neighbors, so PLEASE be respectful of their right to sleep in a quiet environment.

Driveway/Parking: I share my driveway with my neighbors. There is a house to the right and straight back where my neighbors reside. Please to do not block the driveway inhibiting their ability to leave or enter. There is room for at least 4 cars, please park in the gravel and avoid the grass.

Washer Dryer: The washer door needs to be held in for the cycle to begin. If the door doesn’t unlock at the end of a cycle, turn the washer on and off . Start it again and pause after a few seconds, it should unlock.

Towels and Linens: Towels will be on the washer, but there are more in the closet in the bathroom. There are also additional blanket in the bathroom.

Checking out: If you could throw away your trash in trash can and in the recycling(mudroom) that would be appreciated. Towels can be left on the bathroom floor or in the washer. Beds can be left as is, no need to make or strip the beds. Please leave the key on the counter and leave the door UNLOCKED.

Questions: Please don’t hesitate to call or text if you have any questions. 740-707-2983.


Thanks again for staying with us!
