The space
This is a guest suite with a private, upstairs, exterior entrance. The suite is separated from the remainder of our home by an interior lock-off door. This is not simply a private room in our home. It is a self-contained guest suite.

You will take the exterior stairs (one and a half flights) to the private entrance opening into the master bedroom.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed featuring a new memory foam mattress topped by high-end bedding. There is a comfortable, sunny reading nook with a nice view. A new, 50 inch smart TV is in the room for your viewing pleasure. There is a small pub table and two bar stools in this room.

This room also has a closet alcove with a pod coffee maker, mini fridge with freezer, toaster and microwave. Gallon(s) of spring/drinking water provided for coffee brewing. Bottled water, coffee pods, coffee creamers, sweeteners provided. Paper plates, plastic cutlery, coffee mugs, wine glasses, napkins complete the coffee bar area.

Basic toiletries, hairdryer, ironing board with iron are provided. The large master accommodates 2 guests.

The second bedroom is available at a **per person** fee for groups larger than 3 and can accommodate up to 4 additional guests. There are two twin beds and one queen bed.

All mattresses and bedding are new and are of top quality. The queen bed has comfortable memory foam mattress. The room is bright and cheery. This room has its own smart TV.

Memory foam and bamboo covered pillows available in each bedroom.

Comfortable, quality bedding in each room includes allergy rated mattress and pillow covers. A new futon sofa is also in the second bedroom.

The two bedrooms share a bathroom with a full tub/shower. Beautiful tiled floors and the stylish subway tiled shower complete the updated look. Plush towels and quality toiletries are ready for you in this sparkling clean bathroom.

There is a $20 per extra person per night after 3 guests. Please choose the appropriate number of guests as you book. We take great care to deep clean and disinfect after each stay. We use COVID cleaning protocols for our safety and yours.

Contactless check-in available!

Guest access
Guests can use the rocking chair front porch as well the creekside deck.

Creek side fire pit area adjacent to creek deck now available to guests. We can get the fire started for you and supply the makings for s’mores!

Other things to note
We are situated on Main Street, a sometimes busy road. We have sound machines in each room for you. We personally haven't found road noise to be a problem.

We are happy to give local tips!

The space does NOT have a full kitchen but DOES have a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and cups/napkins/utensils.

Room darkening Roman shades in each room pull up or push down ONLY from the bottom center. Please don’t pull from the sides. If you have any questions about how they work, please ask after you check in.

Location

Watkinsville, Georgia, United States

You can quickly walk to Winghouse and Doughby's Pizza. If you take a longer walk (still less than 3/4 mile), you will find The Pub on Main, Chops and Hops, Barberitos and local boutiques. A few steps more and you are at the Athens-born Jittery Joe's Coffee Shop, Kiki's Bakeshop, Girasoles fine dining and more. Parking is not an issue at any of these, and the drive is less than a minute for most downtown Watkinsville venues.

The local library is less than 1/2 mile away, Publix shopping center and many other eateries only 2 miles. A car is needed to access these.

Headed toward Athens? Have a fabulous breakfast at Mama's Boy at The Falls or lunch at the spectacular The Falls Restaurant. We are less than 6 miles from Sanford Stadium, the Georgia Center, The Classic Center and downtown Athens.

Joined in August 2018
    I'm a semi-retired Marketing guy having worked in several industries including Electronics, Advertising, Entertainment, Telecom, Hospitality and Tourism and Education. Defying the idea of partial retirement I find myself busier than ever developing and managing rental properties. I grew up in California and later made Maui, Hawaii home for almost 10 years. 23 years ago I met and married a South Georgia girl and spirited her off to Maui. In a few months we left the islands and have made the Athens area our home since then. We like to travel but our favorite getaway is the beach and everywhere we go we enjoy meeting others. So Instead of downsizing, in early 2019 Allison and I found a new home on a creek within the city limits of Watkinsville with a great space for hosting others. Having met other hosts and stayed at some pretty nice AirBnB's, the idea of becoming a host ourselves seemed like a very cool idea. Thus, since April we've worked like beavers to get our place ready for guests. Allison is Mathematics Instructor at UGA and of course fall weekends around here generally revolve around Georgia Football whether home or away. We attend an awesome Church in Athens, have a great church family, 3 grown sons and 5 grandchildren. And yes, we have and enjoy many family gatherings. When not working (occasionally that happens), I have too many hobbies to mention (ask my wife) including Astronomy, Gardening, Treasure hunting, Fantasy Football, Reading, Photography, Travel, Surfing (when I get to some waves) and collect everything from model trains and planes to rocks and stamps! Both of us look forward to hosting and getting to know our guests. If you visit and are not from this area, we are happy to share all the favorite things we love about NE Georgia. Just ask!
