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.

Excellent experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful cottage! Small, but perfect for my husband and me. We wished we had booked it for a week, rather than just a weekend. Loved it!!?!

Just book it!

  • 5 of 5

Don't waste your time and money - looking elsewhere that is - just book it! It is VERY challenging to find a nice, clean, pet friendly place for under $225 a night. Old Sweet Song is half that and has more charm and amenities then much more expensive properties. The grounds are just beautiful and change depending on the season (we've visited multiple times and already booked our next stay). The cottage itself has everything you need (comfy bed, pull out couch, decent bathroom with good sized shower, cute open living space with ample seating, mini fridge/microwave, dishes/silverware, cute décor, etc). There are lots of little extras like a good selection of books, coffee, newspaper, and extra toiletries. The little covered porch has rocking chairs and a fire pit with wood and starters provided. Plus the owners allow - no - ENCOURAGE you to use and enjoy the expansive outdoor areas which include a huge deck, pool (seasonal), and gardens. The owners are very easy to work with and OUTSTANDING hosts. It is easy 'in and out' as you can park your car literally right next to the back door which makes hauling things back and forth simple. We also like that there is an adorable little town park close to the property; great for walking the dog or letting the kids burn off some energy. Due to trees and heavy foliage you wouldn't even know its there - don't worry you will get no noise from it , just reap the benefits of being able to utilize it. On our last stay the owners suggested the local diner where we grabbed (fantastic) breakfast sandwiches for the road. As you can tell we love Old Sweet Song, it fits all of our needs at a super reasonable price. No doubt, it will fit yours also so just book it - you won't be disappointed.

Very cozy place-nice amenities- great hosts!

The cabin was very warm and inviting. We really enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The library and decor in the cabin was also very interesting as well. Jack and Emily are great hosts. We would gladly stay again!

Adorable cottage with plenty of things to do right in the back yard!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this cottage. The owners were very helpful in finding our now favorite breakfast spot and very easy to get a hold of. The pool was clean, well stacked with loungers and toys for the kiddo! For us parents, we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and the games provided to entertain the whole family. Not to mention both the outside and inside were aesthetically pleasing-loved this place. Would go back. My son made besties with one of the dogs there so we may have to come back!

A special place

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the cottage justice. I brought my family along for the weekend while I worked in Athens. What a great decision. The property is beautiful and tranquil. We were content just to sit outside and relax most of the time, although we were lucky enough to be in town for Winterville's Marigold Festival, which was at the park right down the street. It's such a charming place and a charming town that we barely made it to Athens. It was warm enough for us to enjoy the pool. My son loved it especially. (And the friendly animals on the property.) My husband and I loved sitting out back with a fire in the evening. Jack and Emily were great hosts, very friendly, warm and welcoming. We wouldn't hesitate to come back.

My only suggestion if hosting more than 2 adults, would be to maybe update the pull-out couch mattress.

Thanks so much!!
