Athens, Georgia, United States

Very eclectic area that reflects the artistic culture that makes Athens what it is. Walking and bike friendly. The (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) view of map is very old and does not show the restored house.

I proudly invite you to share my century old, restored cottage . We own 2 identical properties side by side, one in which my husband and I live and the other we let out for short stays. I am a native Athenian and know everything there is to know about our cool town, brimming over with history, music, arts and culinary delights. Our neighborhood is between downtown and Normaltown and is a wonderful, eclectic spot for those seeking the Athens vibe.
