This is a unique and lovely, wood paneled studio in a safe, environmental and fairly high end rural neighborhood. It's newly built in 2009 with quality construction, fixtures and appointments and is 400 sq ft. It is well crafted and provides you plenty of privacy.
The cabin accommodates 2 people (queen size bed).
There is a lot of light with large southern windows as well as windows all around. A private back deck overlooks a small pasture and 540 acres of woods. This back view is very private and surrounded by nature.
It is within a one acre fenced yard and guarded by two lovely dogs who adore being rewarded for their hard work :) Next door is a mini two acre farm with chickens and roosters.
You will enjoy the peace and quiet (with roosters) of a country setting but with easy access to downtown. It is 4 miles to the outskirts of town and 7 miles to the center.
It has wireless internet, WC with shower, kitchen nook with sink, dorm size refrigerator, toaster, coffee pot & microwave, small flat screen T.V. with DVD player (no cable) and a very comfortable queen adjustable bed.
The studio is heated by an electric space heater with a wood stove as an option for those who like extra heat and/or romance. Wood is provided. It is cooled by three ceiling fans and an A/C window unit.
Coffee, tea, filtered water and cereal, soy milk/almond milk, orange juice and fruit for breakfast are provided.
Your sweet companion pets are welcome but please clear with host beforehand and crate them if you plan to leave them alone.
Athens is known for its music & arts scene, the University of Georgia & its football team (go dawgs!) Four miles from our house is a grouping of amenities including gas station and Sr. Sol (one of Athens best Mexican restaurant).
Interaction with Guests
I try to meet my guests at least once but often do not see them much as the studio is completely separate and private. Guests are always welcome to stop by the house for a visit!
No, unfortunately public transit does not come out this far.
Other Things to Note
The wireless network is 145 Three Oaks _ext
The password is: 6DFBF0E190 (those are zeroes and not O's) There is another network as well that may be even faster than 145 Three Oaks_ext. It is called STUDIO and the password is MayWeBeWhole (caps important). Try either one or both!
The wireless is amplified from the main house and hence is affected by weather and rain. The signal is fine for email and surfing but not for large file uploads and downloads.
We changed to charter cable as of January 2015. Hopefully it will work out better for file uploads and downloads.

Absolutely loved our stay are Kate's. The little home in the woods was a sanctuary for us while in Athens for a wedding. With the windows open the cool breeze kept us company and comfortable. The dogs were a blast and loved tummy rubs. We would most certainly stay here again, in a heart beat.
We had such a great experience staying in Kate's studio. It is cozy, quiet and still close to everything in Athens. Kate was a great host and we would definitely stay here again!
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The studio unit was very modern and clean. The location is about 10 minutes outside of Athens in the peaceful countryside. In some ways it was the best of both worlds. We enjoyed the rural feel, but at the same time we were just a short drive away from the action in downtown Athens. Kate was a kind and gracious host.
This studio is my favorite of the Air BNB locations I have rented. First of all, it is totally charming inside and out. The many windows and the little deck produce a feeling of living outside. You are surrounded by birdsong and trees. We were enchanted.
When it rained, we were happy to sit by the heater and read. When it was sunny, we were happy to sit on the deck and read. It was totally private. We stayed five days and spent three days exploring Athens, gardens and little towns around the countryside.
Kate and family were caring about our comfort and made sure we had everything we needed. They left starter groceries and snacks and checked on us unobtrusively.
Guests should know there is no TV though there is a DVD player and several discs to choose from. The kitchen appliances are just adequate. There is a mini fridge and one burner to plug in. We ate in a lot so we had to do some shifting around. This was a small price to pay however when everything else was so comfortable.
The cabin is in the country but this is a small town so it is only about 10 minutes to most of Athens. It is on a country road that is okay for a morning run.
Mrs. Kate was very welcoming and helpful throughout my entire stay. The listing was completely accurate. The studio was well outfitted and a pleasant place to stay. The interior was very clean, and the setting was quiet. I hope to stay here again in the future if I ever go back to Athens.
As Airbnb hosts, this was our very first Airbnb stay. As so often we are hosting others, it was nice to be hosted. We had a wonderful experience with Kate and her cozy studio apartment. It had everything we needed. It was so comfortable and quiet. It was just exactly what we were looking for and we certainly hope to come back and stay soon. Her dogs were so friendly and greeted us when we were coming and going. She was very easy to communicate with and had quick feedback when we had questions. She gave us some great suggestions for places in town to visit. We had a lovely time. If you are looking for a rejuvenating place, this is the place to stay!
Kate is a terrific host, and she made us feel very at home in her amazing little cabin/studio. We lived for several years in Western Colorado, and this place brought back some wonderful memories. The surroundings are serene and relaxing, and it was great to cozy up in the cabin while the rain came down outside. Plus, Athens is an amazing town, and only a few minutes down the road. My girls and I can't wait to visit again, take a hike, play with the dogs, and spend more time in the studio.

I am retired from IT at the University of Georgia (UGA). My husband still teaches at UGA in computer science. I enjoy creating and sharing beautiful spaces and love meeting people. I hope you will come and enjoy our lovely town and experience our great local restaurants and the music that has made Athens famous - OK maybe football too :) If you have any questions be sure to ask and we can point you in the right direction!
