Great check-in experience
90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

My place is between Athens and Winterville near the airport, 2 miles to Athens Bipass . If you like minimal separation from nature, you will love this rustic old house ambiance, with comfy bed, the outdoors space (it is an oak grove), front porch swing, the light, peacefulness, feels like the country but only 5 miles to UGA and downtown. I have a dog and am a gardener. There is wifi here but no TV. The original clawfoot tub is not suitable for disabled folks.

Molly is a kind a generous host. Her place is secluded, but a quick drive to downtown Athens--we were in town for the UGA game and it was outside of the heavily trafficked area. The house has quaint throwback charm with many fine decorative touches. We enjoyed visiting with Molly…
