Hi, I'm Nelson Wells, music industry publicist in Athens. I built this cottage as my home & a place of solace for my twin daughters & me. You'll see it's an ideal modern build in classic cottage style just 3-blocks walk to downtown Athens, Georgia, close to UGA & sleeps 6 comfortably. 16-foot ceilings welcome you to the large open-format living & dining area w/ all stainless, slate, hardwoods, fireplace, wifi & flatscreen. I created a comfy cottage that's also a modern fortress you'll enjoy.

Thanks, Lea. We were so glad to have you and your family and friends. You all must have been out on the town enjoying the restaurants because our home was immaculate. What a great and easy crew. (I left them some locally brewed beer and they left me some great Savannah-brewed beer!) We will welcome you all back any time. Sincerely, Nelson

Nelson's Athens Cottage was exactly how he described it! Charming, comfortable, and clean! We loved the neighborhood and how easy it was to walk to the game at UGA, and the wonderful restaurants just down the block. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Nelson was very welcomin…

Great communication via email and explanatory notes at the house. Great experience. Just wish the football game had turned out differently.
