About Laurie Tate
I grew up in Opelika, we both graduated from Auburn University and after moving around the south and mid-west for 27 years we decided to settle back in my hometown. You will find the area very friendly with a slow pace, yet many activities to choose from. If you like college sports, you have found the right place...WAR EAGLE! If you love golfing, look no further, we have some of the most fabulous courses around and are home to one of The Robert Trent Jones golf course. Love to antique? Enjoy riding on backroads and finding many hidden treasures. Come enjoy your stay and quickly find out why Opelika has been voted as one of the best places to retire! Welcome!
Laurie Tate purchased this House in 2016
Why Laurie Tate chose Opelika
We bought the home I grew up in and love the wooded feel of the lot and the older homes. The house next door to us became available and we bought it to use and share as a guest house to those wanting to enjoy the area of Opelika and Auburn.
What makes this House unique
You will love the larger, wooded lots and the charm of the older homes. The location is perfect for Auburn game days and any other activities you wish in this historic railroad town.
Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The people who own the house are super nice accommodating and live next door! The house is pretty close to campus but be careful because the ubers will gouge you. I live in a college town full time and have never experienced a surge on game day like I did while I was in Auburn. The only down fall of this is it was 1 and 1/2 bath and the 1/2 bath doesn’t have a door (it’s inside the bedroom). Not a super issue except in certain situations if you know what I mean. Overall good stay.
Thank you for staying with us! We are still renovating the home & waiting on a custom door for that 1/2 bath...guest close the bedroom door when bathroom is in use. We would have been happy to have shuttled y’all around to the store instead of UBER. I hate the Uber drivers increase their prices so much on game days. If you are in the area again, please consider us.... we do try to make it affordable for folks. Thank you again. Laurie Tate
We were there to celebrate one of our grandsons birthday
Our stay at the Guesthouse could not have been any better. For the time we arrived until we left things could not have been any better. The house was very clean and the owners, the Tate's, wanted to make sure that we had everything we needed. They made our stay a pleasure. This was the second stay for part of the family and it will be the house that we choose when we are back down there. Location is perfect.
Very nice home, with an exceptional backyard! Loved sitting out with my coffee in the mornings listening to the birds and owls. Great neighborhood, very quiet. House was very clean! Going to make it our go to place when staying in this area.
Nice home overall. Good location for families attending events at Auburn University.
Home was very nice. Stocked well with towels and wash clothes. Two areas inside to relax and watch TV. Owner was very nice provided a nice surprise of snacks, coffee and breakfast items. (Could of used some sugar for coffee to make some of our party happier lol). Great location to Auburn University. One issue we had Bed attached to half bath squeaks with any movement did not sleep well as a result. Owner may want to look into this issue. Very thankful to have found this home for our stay during son's spring graduation.
Malinda, so happy that we were able to accommodate your family at the last minute for your sons graduation. Thank you for staying with us....

Loved having you stay! Congratulations to the graduate!
