About Mick Miner
We want others to be able to make use of the rest of the space we have available in the home we occupy. We are big Dawg fans and we welcome Dawg Nation guests, as well as those from the other team. Families, groups, couples, singles - anyone can fit into this space and call it their "Athens home",. (Let us know if you need a longer stay or for dates that are not available. We're currently only listing it on weekends or during major events in the area)
Mick Miner purchased this House in 2006
Why Mick Miner chose Athens
Athens is truly the "Classic City", home of UGA and the Georgia Bulldogs. We love the country atmosphere where our home sits, yet being so close to campus and downtown Athens. Great schools, places to eat, State Botanical Gardens, and many other things to do truly make it a great place to raise a family. This is the house we purchased 13 years ago when we first came to Athens. We loved this house and how spacious and homey it is and raised 4 kids here. This daylight basement area is very private, quiet and you will have it to yourself (we live upstairs and will not be accessing or using any of the space during your stay). You will have private access to it through your own private entrance. The entrance is a short walk from the front of the house. In inclement weather, we will offer an alternate entrance.
What makes this House unique
Close to everything! Lots to do while you're here to have quality fun time together as a family/group (or just as a single/couple). Also very comfortable beds with dark rooms so you can sleep in! Since we have no kitchen, you get to eat out :-) Enjoy ping-pong, board games, watching streaming TV/movies, reading a book, or watching your own devices with the high-speed internet.
No smoking/vaping allowed inside or outside.
We can provide 1 or 2 blowup beds for kids.
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 6 adults)
Only guests in reservation allowed. No excessively loud music/TV (we live upstairs) No cooking (except with available microwave).
No lighting candles/open flames. Don’t use bi-fold doors into office (plastic slide locks should only be moved to exit to outside in an emergency)
Please don’t open or go behind curtain in ping pong room. This is our private storage area.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
Great UGA Getaway!
Our family loved this home for our trip! We were in town for a UGA game and the home was perfect. Clean and plenty of room for the kids to run around.
We will definitely be back next time we are in town for a game!
Next time I visit, I will make sure to ask where the temperature control is located.
Joseph, the thermostat was on the wall above the coffee maker, with instructions in the house manual on how to adjust it. So sorry you didn't see it!
Wonderful weekend getaway
Wow! That’s all I can say in regards to this beautiful property and the owners. Everything was just as it was listed, immaculately clean, and this place is huge! There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with 2 single beds. They even had a selection of snacks and beverages waiting on our arrival. Even more impressive was their house manual which answered any questions guests couple possibly have. Uber and Lyft were readily available to pick us up and we were only 15 minutes from downtown Athens. I highly recommend this property!
David - thanks for your feedback! We surely hope you pick our place when you come to Athens again.
Great fall weekend in Athens
We had a great weekend in Athens staying at this location. Everything is as advertised in the pictures. It's clean and spacious. The check-in and check-out process is seamless.
Mick was very accommodating and answered any and all questions promptly.
I highly recommend it.
Abe, Thanks again for choosing our place and for being such a great guest! We hope you choose our place whenever you need a place to stay in Athens in the future!
