About The Owner

Jon, Jennifer and Jake Cooper live in Atlanta, where they love the Braves and Hawks. Jennifer graduated from Auburn University in 1991, and Jon graduated from the University of Maryland in 1983. Jake is still undecided about where, or if, he'll pursue higher education.

Why The Owner chose Alabama

Jon was unfamiliar with SEC football until Jennifer came along. He now knows what he'd been missing. After moving from New York to Atlanta, they enjoyed Auburn season tickets, until Jake was born. Now that Jake is old enough to enjoy Auburn football -- and basketball, baseball, etc. -- we spend a lot of time on the Auburn campus.

What makes this house unique

In addition to being walking distance from the Auburn campus and Jordan-Hare Stadium, the house is also near a public pool near the junior high (about two blocks away). Chewacla State Park and a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course are also nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in the "little house." Our kids had a blast at their first Auburn game. War Eagle!

My daughter n law is at Veterinary school at LSU and needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks near Auburn University for a veterinary rotation. She loved this place. I wanted a safe neighborhood for her close to campus. This was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, and close. Jennifer, the owner, was so accommodating and response time for questions were quick. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who would like to stay for any reason in Auburn. It would be perfect for a game day getaway weekend for Auburn fans. If any one in my family should ever have to go back again to Auburn, I would definitely stay here. Thank you Jennifer! It was perfect. Although Irma hit, thank goodness it was just a tropical storm, maybe less, when it got to her and the weather was not that bad. That's something you can't control. Thanks again Jennifer, it was awesome. 5+ star rating!

Charming Cottage- perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This Home Away was perfect for our family of 4 for 2 weeks! There was tons of room for a 2/1-- cozy furniture, comfy beds and more than enough closet space. The fun & colorful art work & bead board paneling gave this spacious cottage a hip cabin vibe. An abundant amount of linens & kitchen supplies were provided & with 2 teenage boys, the newer washer & drier was a life saver! There was no dishwasher but the owner provided enough paper products for our entire stay so no dish washing for me! The wifi worked perfectly for our 6 devices (!). The cottage was close to restaurants & the university, and in a safe, quiet, location with off road parking for 2 or 3 cars.

The owner responds quickly to all questions.

We were in between moving out of our former home & into our new home & this charming cottage was the perfect place for us!

Jennifer was so accommodating, I needed a place to stay for a few weeks and this place did the trick. Everything you could need was there and any questions I had received immediate replies. Would recommend again and again for anyone needing a place in Auburn whether it be for a weekend or something longer!
