An old house, late 1800s side shotgun, with a large entry hallway, living room, 2 bedrooms, kitchen and one bathroom. On a green street one block from downtown Athens and 3 blocks from UGA. Front porch with swing, rocking chairs and fan; wood floors throughout, big sunny windows...central heat and AC, dishwasher, access to washer and dryer...wifi throughout, cable and all utilities included... and a wondrous garden. Stroll to the Grit, the National, the Four Course Men, the 40 Watt and a plethora of fine drinking establishments, coffee shops and stores or laze about in the garden or down by the stream.

We loved staying at the house. It was simple and perfect. While close to downtown it still feels safe and private. We brought our son and he loved the space to run around. While we didn't go to the backyard the front porch was lovely.

The cottage is very convenient to downtown, located in a safe neighborhood and with a fantastic porch. Also within walking distance is a local co-op grocery and great small shops that aren't in downtown, if you prefer to explore.

Lee was amazing. The Airbnb was amazing. I’m speechless when it comes to the backyard and the garden. It was magical and I can’t wait to stay again. The house was incredible and it was the perfect distant from downtown. I loved every minute of my stay.
