About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms includes Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Serenity awaits you at the Luxury Log Cabin located just 12.25 miles from the heart of Athens. This cabin was built 16 years ago and is located on a private 20 acre watershed lake.

No matter what brings you here you will enjoy the solitude of being the only home on the lake. Many visitors come just to get away from the daily grind but most come here to be close to UGA activities! You can watch the game from the comfort of the cabin or be in the middle of Sanford Stadium in minutes.

While you are here you may enjoy fishing in the lake where there is an abundance of Brim, Crappy, Bass, and Catfish. You can sleep late and awaken to the beauty of the lake through the master bedroom window then go out to cruise the lake on kayaks or the jon boat. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils for any occasion. You can relax on the wraparound porch and enjoy meals indoors or out.

Theaters, shopping, you name it and it's there. The Commerce Outlet Malls are only 10 minutes from our home in case you have shopping on your mind!

After dinner, you can relax by the lake and enjoy s'mores by the campfire as you unwind from the day. Hmmm...sounds good!

We prefer to answer all questions and complete reservation via email through this site. Our reservation calender is up to date. If your date shows availability you can book online. Thanks!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the cabin. My oldest son has Asperger's and is very sensitive to smells, bugs, and what ever else he perceives as not being clean. He said he could live here! That is a huge compliment!!! Said it was best place he's ever been. The other three kids having a great time too!

Christmas at Athens Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful stay....was our second time. Our kids and great grand kids really enjoyed the place. They have a new swing set they played on. Fire pit out front was cool. Weather was fabulous.....50-70 degrees all week. Only had a few issues that I talked to Nancy about (Jamie's mother). She is very helpful and enjoyed her visit with us. Burl & Sherrie Ledbetter

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our property. This cabin is our getaway from the hustle and bustle of life and it is important to us that it be a very comfortable place to rest and recharge. Now that we have children it's also important that they have fun so we added the kayaks, swingset, etc. I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin as much as we do and we look forward to your return for the fourth visit!

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great town, Great cabin, Great owner.

Quiet & Peaceful. Loved the bonfires & fireplCe inside.

Wished for a hammock to enjoy afternoon naps among nature & the entry gate (w/ remote) was very trickery & hit our truck a few times.

Great cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time relaxing in this cabin on the lake. Much more spacious than we anticipated and there was plenty to see and do for all ages. Our small children (ages 2-8) had a great time on the lake, exploring the woods, and spending time on the play set.

Serene Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

A very pleasant stay in a lovely cabin, surrounded by the tranquility of nature. Great for a family vacation, the cabin has every thing you need to make you feel at home. Our time was filled with fishing, canoeing, barbecues and marshmallows by the fire. Morning coffee on the porch was beautiful. Great location too. Drove to Atlanta for some museum time and spent time in downtown Athens which is a gem. Thank you for providing a wonderful stay.
