We had a wonderful time at the Gillen House! The home is beautiful and charming, decorated with the hostess’ artwork. The bed was so comfortable and the room/bathroom was beautiful. Edward and Cynzia are so welcoming and hospitable- we felt right at home. The breakfast was delicious and everything was so thoughtfully planned out. Even though it rained our entire visit, we still loved sitting on the back porch, reading and listening to the rain. Beautiful home and wonderful people- you won’t be disappointed!

Katie - Cynzia and I are happy that you found us for an extra day away from the big city! The upstairs porch is such a peaceful spot on a rainy late afternoon - glad you two discovered it. Please make plans to return soon. Thanks again for the stay and the kind words here. Edward & Cynzia

I just returned from an amazing weekend at The Gillen House in Maxey’s GA and I highly recommend it!

My husband and I went with three other couples and planned to attend The Wildwood Music Festival, a 10 minute drive. The Festival was fun but we were caught off guard by how much we enjoyed relaxing at The Gillen House. We decided not to go to the festival on the second day and enjoyed the property instead.

A perfect place to unwind. Beautifully restored and decorated by the artist Cynzia Sanchez and her partner Edward Toledano, the Gillen House is lovingly decorated and so comfortable.

Edward and Cynzia are the perfect hosts! Very interesting and engaging and happy to have a cocktail on the porch with you or give you all the space you need.

Can’t wait to return!!!!

From the patio out back I watched the big sky clouds drift over the barn and the lawn and a pond with a turtle doing yoga in the afternoon sun.

It was the kind of peaceful country setting that can’t be copied or arranged just anywhere.

It’s no surprise that Edward and Cynthia are it’s curators. Each an artist in their own, now sharing an amazing palette that I was happy to enjoy and am anxious to return to again.

Cynzia and I are so glad that you chose to stay the weekend with us. The open sky does indeed allow you to see the wonders above and the turtles add a special flair. We are happy that the peacefulness here was discovered.

I was looking online for lodging for the Notre Dame-UGA weekend. I wanted something on the east side of Athens so that we could avoid the heavy traffic between Atlanta and Athens. I found The GillenHouse in Maxeys. I didn't want to take a chance that it would be booked, so I called them. It was 9:45 p.m. on a Saturday evening, and Edward, one of the owners answered! (Personal Service) To say that we had a great time, would be an understatement. The house is perfectly renovated and beautifully decorated. Our room was spacious and had large (new) windows, Beautyrest King sized mattress, beautiful new fixtures and tile in the bathroom. The house was completely booked, but we felt as if we were the only visitors. It was very quiet. The home is filled with beautiful art created by Cynzia and Edward. There is a putting green and a driving range in the back yard. Plenty of lounging space on the deep porches, the upstairs screened porch, the back deck or beneath the hollies and or the magnolias. Cynzia made the most wonderful salsa from the tomatoes grown in their garden for us our first night. We enjoyed walking on the new Firefly trail that is across the street. We didn't have time to play on their bocce ball court, but hope to next visit. We both slept better than we had in months. We hated to leave.

Room tip: Ask for the blueberry and strawberry pancakes.

Thank you for the kind words in your review of The Gillen House B&B. Our hope is that you can soon be "back down South" in the near future! So very glad we were able to connect and enjoy time together in Maxeys. While it may seem to be a sleepy little town, this community is forward thinking and excited to have new opportunities happening all around us. Having such wonderful guests as you two adds to the great enjoyment Cynzia and I have experienced since opening. See you soon!

My husband and I visited this lovely home soon after it opened. We were awed by the restoration work that had been done so tastefully within and without the house. The bedrooms were large and beautifully decorated, and the bathrooms were all brand new and sophisticated. It’s obvious that Cynzia and Edward enjoy what they do and pass that enjoyment onto their guests. We recommend it highly.
