The space
CLEAN - We want to you to feel completely at home and comfortable during your stay at the Mure House. And so, between each guest, we don't just do a "hotel wash" of the sheets. We actually strip the bed down and wash the mattress pad, comforter, blankets and double wash the sheets, pillow cases and pillow covers.

SECURE - We have monitored codes to gain access to the Mure House and we have security cameras and security lighting. It is important to us that you feel completely safe during your stay.

CONVENIENT - We are fortunately located at a spot that is convenient to everything you could possibly need. You can walk to well over a dozen restaurants and bars for breakfast, lunch and dinner (including vegetarian restaurants as well as meated restaurants). Other conveniences that are a very short walk away include: a local grocery store, drug store, hospital, dry cleaners, local live acting theatre, hot yoga, park, and play ground.

We call this the gold room as it is furnished with golden maple furniture and a cherry sleigh bed. The room includes a queen sized bed and also a 1929 Original Murphy Bed - but not a 1929 mattress, the mattress is new :)

The room includes a full kitchen and a full private bath that are housed within the room.

While I practice law during the day, my passion is musical theatre - watching or being on stage. Town & Gown is just two blocks from the house and you should check to see if any shows are running when you visit. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and bourbon, neat, is my go to drink all year round. I attend Athens Church and have 4 kids and three grandchildren. Would be so honored to have you stay with us. We purchased the house in April of 2013 and have been fixing it up ever since. The last touch was FINALLY painting the outside of the house. It took a lot of thought but at the suggestion of my oldest son, and architect, we settled in on black. The actual color is Farrow and Ball Pitch Black. And no, just because it is black does not mean it is haunted. I am sure you will enjoy your stay with us. We love Athens and will always be full of advice on what to do, where to eat, and how to get there.

During your stay
I love hanging out on the front porch with a beer or bourbon and talking with guests but, I know sometimes they just want to chill by themselves so I always wait to be invited.
