About this listing
This is a unique, lovely, wood paneled studio in a safe, environmental, rural neighborhood.
The cabin accommodates two with a queen size bed, full bath, kitchen nook & wood stove.
We are 7 miles from the center of Athens.
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, electrical plate & microwave (no full size stove), 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.

I have had a wonderful time staying with Kate and Dan. The studio is perfect. It is the perfect place to get away for quiet and relaxation. Kate and Dan have been so generous and are so friendly and inviting. I would definitely stay here again.
What a fun cabin. It was like being at the end of the Earth with AC and microwave. Seriously, I would recommend this B&B without hesitation. The cabin is tongue-and-groove pine paneling with three fans, natural finished shelves, a little back porch, and a lot of character. The host has stocked it with most everything you might need for a short stay, such as fresh fruit, Kashli cereal, OJ, tea and coffee. OK. This is not your average Holiday Inn Distress. You might find yourself awakened by a rooster. There are two friendly quadrupeds that will announce your comings and goings. But other than that, it is a very quiet, peaceful and fun place to stay that is far from the maddening crowd, but a very quick drive into the heart of town. Great value.
A wonderful nature oasis right outside of Athens! Far enough away for peace and quiet, but close enough to quickly get to the heart of Athens! Kate made us feel welcome and had every little thing you may need while staying away from home!
It was very roomy, comfortable, and had many unexpected luxuries; such as a wonderful bed, great shower, and comfortable seating!
Hoping to stay there again!
Easy quick breakfast snacks available . Very comfortable inside and well thought out .
Everything was perfect. Kate is a very gracious host and the cabin was spectacular. You can tell a lot of detail went into the building of this cabin.
Just a lovely cabin exactly as described. Kate had coffee, soy milk, cereal and fruit available for us which was a delightful touch. She and her very friendly dogs greeted us when we arrived and Kate offered any help in finding things to do in town. We were then left to our own devices and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the woods. Will surely stay again when in the area.
Kate Blane's place was the most beautiful cabin we've ever seen. The woodsy surroundings, privacy, and breakfast were delightful. She made us feel so welcome, and I hope we can stay there again.

About the Host, Kate
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!
