Property description

Creekside Cottage is a quiet, private gem nestled in the Appalachian foothills in a wooded country setting, yet only a 5 minute drive to Ohio University. It has a fully equipped kitchen, large deck with porch swing and outdoor furniture, fire pit, and hot tub. Bedrooms (one with a full bed, one with two twins, one with one twin bed) are equipped with quality mattresses and fine bedding. All linens are provided. Tastefully decorated, you'll find an extensive library of classic novels, historical biographies, photo illustrations, etc. AC and furnace will keep you comfortable no matter the season. Hot tub for relaxing at night and watching stars, or for that first cup of coffee in the morning. We think the surrounding beauty and nature's songs will take guests away from a hectic world for a short time. Cable and Internet available now, and cell phone reception is good if you find a spot and hold still.
Experience a historical college town and all it has to offer, and return to peaceful solitude, a comfortable bed, sounds of nature, and the simple comfort of a good nights sleep. Travelers will find this a delight! Pets are welcome with a deposit
This is positively a NO TOBACCO environment beyond the fire pit! Special event OU weekends are priced as follows: $250/ night for 2, $25 extra per night per extra person, maximum 5 guests. Check-in time is 3pm, checkout is noon.

Car: Recommended

Located in scenic Appalachian foothills. Perfect mix of country and culture, with Ohio University campus and downtown Athens, a small college town of 20,000 students that still has brick streets! There is always great music and all the culture that OU has to offer,

the center of town being a five minute drive from the house. Located near 3 State Parks with boating and fishing. Athens sponsors many community events each year, Boogie on the Bricks, Brew Fest Week, The International Quilt Show, Final Fridays on the Nelsonville Square, Paw Paw Fest, Halloween weekend, the yearly Nelsonville Music Festival, to name a few. The city pool is open summers. Hiking and Mountain biking trails can be found in all the state parks, and there is a paved 35 mile bike trail from Athens to Nelsonville along the Hocking River.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I'm an Ohio University graduate who never left. I love the area, the people, and the enlightenment of a college town. Big on reading in a quiet environment, inside or out, and unplugged music.

Why the Owner Chose Athens, OH, USA:
The outdoor privacy, yet convenience to the city. Creekside house has NO visible neighbors, the view is of the creek, woods, hillside.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Five minutes from town. The comfortable deck, full kitchen, outdoor walks undisturbed.
