About Marsha Rosenthal

I love Athens and my neighborhood. I live right in the middle of the action between Milledge and Lumpkin. On game days, you can feel the excitement in the air as you watch fans streaming past the house on their way to the stadium. I'm a counselor and a UGA graduate and love the vibe of Athens. There is so much to do here: watching all kinds of sports; attending concerts, theatre, and shows; going out to eat in fine, ethnic or funky restaurants; and the list goes on.

Marsha Rosenthal purchased this house in 1990

Why Marsha Rosenthal chose Athens

Location, location. location and the charm of an updated craftsmen bungalow make this house a hit. In short, the house has character. It is homey because it is a family home. It is not stiff and formal but it is also not indestructible. People who like this property are looking for something different, not the cookie cutter rental property.

What makes this house unique

The house is close to everything. You don't have to get in your car all weekend. Enjoy a walk through campus on your way to the game. Eat in or go to restaurants within two blocks of the house.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. Very clean. Beautiful porch. We had everything we needed. Walking distance to five points and to some campus locations. The owner was kind enough to work with our schedule when we were moving our daughters into their school housing.

We loved Marsha's home. She welcomed us with brownies, enough said!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beautiful home. It was comfortable for the four of us, but six could have been comfortable. We were there for UGA graduation and it was perfect. My only regret was we didn't have enough time to sit and relax on the beautiful front porch and the rain, the rain was inconvenient! Thank you so much Marsha.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for UGA graduation. The house is spacious and beautiful; it is decorated with antiques and interesting art. The porch is wonderful.The beds were all comfortable. Marsha went out of her way to accommodate us and greeted us with freshly baked brownies. We can't wait to go back for a game day!

Perfect Family Gathering

My family came together for the UGA/UK game and couldn't have been more pleased with this home. It is perfectly located and charming. You won't want to leave the front porch! We'll be back.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful home for the Tennessee/GA game weekend. We tailgated on lovely front porch and talked to everyone walking by to the game. The house is much larger than it appears in the photos. We had plenty of room. The beds were comfortable, warm, and welcoming. The home is perfectly located between my daughter's sorority house and the campus so that we had a short walk to the game. The best part of this lovely old home is it's character. It has been cared for with great respect and we so appreciated every aspect of it's historical detail. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and tell you to expect to be surprised by it's wonderful charm! We hope to be back next year!
