Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Cottage. The owners are wonderful people. The cabin is very comfortable and the outdoor area is truly relaxing. If you love animals their cats and dogs are super friendly. The location is so close to Athens where you can find good food. But I do recommend the City Dinner in Winterville for breakfast. We ate their twice.

I highly recommend staying here and regretted having to leave after such a wonderful stay.

Had a great time and it was a gorgeous cabin. We'll stay there anytime we're near Athens if it's available. Thank you so much Jack.

Beautiful, historic cottage - Dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two dogs, and I enjoyed our stay and definitely would stay here again. Historic cottage co-located with owners, but they were very friendly and were mostly out of sight unless we needed something. Owners even accommodated a late addition of two guests for a night without extra charge. Very affordable place with personal access to workout room, hot tub, pool, grill, large backyard, and adjacent park.

Very Relaxed

  • 5 of 5

Our visit with The Cottages of Jack & Emily was very refreshing in that it was like visiting friends. The property has history and the cottage is very comfortable, nice size living room, bedroom and bath (plenty of very hot water). We would definitely visit again. The location was perfect, close to Athens without being in the middle of all the traffic associated with Athens. Winterville is a quiet little town with personality.

Adorable Cabin/Beautiful Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage At Old Sweet Song was ...well; just SWEET! If you are in the area do NOT hesitate to book this clean , cozy, and quaint cottage. It has everything you need with a comfortable queen bedroom with desk, roomy living area, nice bathroom, and kitchenette area. The inside in decorated very cute with a railroad/music theme. There is a really nice book selection which includes most of the classics as well as some great poetry choices. The outside surroundings are just lovely. The cottage has it's own little porch overlooking a large forested backyard with hot tub, pool, and fire pit. The owners even had a shelf for guest use supplied with things like insect repellent and beach towels; very practical and thoughtful. The fire pit was ready with wood, kindling and even a lighter. Clearly the owners provided lots of little extras which you don't often find in rentals. The outdoor trees and plantings are many and varied and include ferns, hostas, magnolias and more - a very pretty, peaceful, and relaxing environment.

We did not do much of anything as we arrived after a long drive. We were content to sit in the rocking chairs and relax with some wine and cheese before heading to bed early. The coffee pot and supplied coffee are always something we appreciate; thanks much. The owners were very friendly and made sure we knew where to find items and how to work things. Also, they were totally respectful of giving us our privacy knowing we'd had a long trip. Next time we do hope to chat more with them about the history of the cabin and how they came about to own it ect- seems like there's stories to be told, lol!

Another thing we appreciated was being able to bring our beloved (large) dog. If you are lucky enough to have your pet approved to stay; BEWARE - you will NOT be charged (unheard of these days)! They not only tolerated our dog but actually seemed to welcome her. Please be respectful of their property, clean up after your pet , be responsible pet owners and they are likely to welcome you back again. Additionally, there is a great 'homey' park about a 4 minute walk from the property which is super clean and has a great walking trail where you can exercise your dog.

In summary, I took the time to write such a detailed review because we thought this was a great place for a remarkable value - again, do NOT hesitate to stay here.
