2020 has been a year of travel plans canceled, rescheduled, and canceled again. But a trip to see my best friend in Georgia brought this beautiful place into view on my potential overnight reservations list. I’m so thankful it did! The price was right, the location was rural and scenic, and the hosts go above and beyond with COVID-safe routines when it comes to housekeeping concerns. These facts all caught my eye as wonderful qualities in their listing description. However, the actual experience of staying there is where the delight really was. I have never roomed at a better establishment in all my personal and business travels. The hosts were beyond hospitable and we’re genuinely interested in making my stay a cozy, welcoming, and luxurious experience. The interiors are a feast for your eyes with the beautiful combination of owner-created, modern artistic renderings juxtaposed against the house’s original and antique structure. The bedding made one’s sleep like a dream, and the food was simply delicious. I highly recommend staying in the verde room. Cynzia and Edward are delightful hosts. They have created quite the sanctuary in the middle of a quaint town that helps you get away from all the bustle and noise of the city while still retaining the courtesies and attention to detail that one expects from staff at 4 and 5 star hotels. This place is a gem, and its owners are a treasure. All reasons why I will be staying here again.

I wonderful place to get away to ..but still be close enough catch a ball game in Athens or to see your students if they go to school there. Wonderful food and accommodations. Renovation of the HVAC system is so excellent my allergies disappeared the last time we stayed there. Great hospitality and food coupled with a beautiful home and surroundings.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Cynzia and Edward were the best hosts!!! The house is beautifully restored and decorated, and the grounds are so lovely as well (we both loved the turtle pond!!!). The rooms had everything you could possibly need or want. The bed was comfy and the bathroom felt like a spa. It’s the perfect weekend getaway! This was such a relaxing weekend for my husband and me. We WILL be back:)

A wonderful get-away close to Athens, Georgia and not too far from Atlanta. The owners are delightful, the house and grounds are beautiful, and all of the rooms are special. Great place for couples, business meeting or a special occasion. We had a lovely girls weekend in February on the property complete with a birthday dinner prepared by the owners. Cannot wait to go back!

My wife and I came over from Marietta for a high school reunion and we knew exactly where to stay, her old homestead. It has been several years since her family lived here so we were so excited to have an opportunity to enjoy the home once again and see all the amazing things Ed & Cynzia had done. We loved it all, sitting on the front porch, walking through all the old buildings, staying in my wife's old bedroom (The Rojo Room), having breakfast in the Buchanan Dining Room next to the Vinson Parlor and mostly connecting with Ed & Cynzia. They were such great hosts. We had the opportunity to share some old stories of our experience in the old home as well as hear about all the things that have happened since. Would recommend this to anyone looking to relax and get a piece of history of one of the most charming cities in the State of Georgia. Can't wait to return with friends in the Fall for a Geogia game. Thank You Ed & Cynzia.
