Adorable cozy townhouse! Located in historic downtown - only 2 blocks from City Hall and a few more to UGA Arches, Classic Center and all that downtown has to offer. Also across the street from 7 acre Lay Park with playground, public pool, Lyndon House Arts Center & Museum and 1/2 a mile to North Oconee River Greenway! Enjoy shopping, dining, live music, festivals, art galleries. A few blocks from the Georgia Theatre and 40 Watt Club down the street from The Foundry. No need for a car.
Our townhouse is located downtown Athens for visitors wanting to enjoy Athens for what it is best known for.... Some would say Bulldawg Football and all sports. Some would say its the amazing local music scene (you can't stay closer unless you stay in a hotel). Or any of the many special events going on, be it: any parade or festival, graduation, weddings, conferences, visiting students or professors, parties and parades.
The kitchen has everything you need for meal preparation and an enjoyable dining experience including oven with stove top, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, refrigerator, freezer, ice machine, cutlery, plates, napkins, etc. We also provide fresh coffee grounds, an assortment of teas, plus basics for cooking and baking (oils, spices, sweeteners, condiments, etc.).
The living room is adorned with our collection of folk art tapestries and wood pieces, and is the perfect lounge area for relaxing and socializing. We also have a 40-inch flat screen television with Roku and DVD player. Regular cable/TV service is NOT provided. An HDMI cable is provided if guests wish to connect their laptop/tablet/ mobile device to the TV in order to stream content through WIFI.
We can accommodate families with small children but amenities such as Pack N Play, high chair, books, toys, etc. must be requested in advance as they are not kept in the house at all times.
Enjoy the screened in back patio with ceiling fan, comfortable chairs, and view of back yard and the top of the Lyndon House (over our new wooden privacy fence). We also have outside table and chairs for those wanting to dine outside, and a comfy stand alone 'porch swing' with cushions and canopy.
There are 2 guest parking spaces available (for regular sized vehicles) and more spaces may be made available upon special request. The townhouse and property is there for your private use. We, the owners, live about a mile away.
Accessibility note: The bedrooms and full bathroom are locate upstairs on the second floor. There is a half bath on the first floor.
