Overview

Athens Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms includes Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Serenity awaits you at the Luxury Log Cabin located just 12.25 miles from the heart of Athens. This cabin was built 16 years ago and is located on a private 20 acre watershed lake.

No matter what brings you here you will enjoy the solitude of being the only home on the lake. Many visitors come just to get away from the daily grind but most come here to be close to UGA activities! You can watch the game from the comfort of the cabin or be in the middle of Sanford Stadium in minutes.

While you are here you may enjoy fishing in the lake where there is an abundance of Brim, Crappy, Bass, and Catfish. You can sleep late and awaken to the beauty of the lake through the master bedroom window. The kitchen is fully stocked for any occasion. You can relax on the wraparound porch and enjoy meals indoors or out.

Theaters, shopping, you name it and it's there. The Commerce Outlet Malls are only 10 minutes from our home in case you have shopping on your mind!

After dinner, you can relax by the lake and enjoy s'mores by the campfire as you unwind from the day. Hmmm...sounds good!

We prefer to answer all questions and complete Reservation via email through this site. A phone number is provided for last minute bookings less than 3 days in advance of arrival. Our reservation calender is up to date. If your date shows availability email to book! Thanks!

About Jamie Ramsey

I grew up on the 60 acre farm that surrounds this beautiful cabin. I built the cabin and lived there during college at UGA. AFter college it became a family getaway until I decided to share it with others through vacation rental.

Jamie Ramsey purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Jamie Ramsey chose Athens

We are the third generation of my family to own this property. The home is located on a private watershed lake that was built in the 1960's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying the cabin. My oldest son has Asperger's and is very sensitive to smells, bugs, and what ever else he perceives as not being clean. He said he could live here! That is a huge compliment!!! Said it was best place he's ever been. The other three kids having a great time too!

We had a great time. Very relaxing. We caught up on walking, fishing (caught a large sun fish), and napping. Our little dog had a blast too. Didn't want to go home. We will be back.

A fantastic get away cabin. . .!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed from a Thursday evening through a football weekend in Athens. Very cozy place on a lake with a great atmosphere. . .three nice bedrooms were perfect and the kitchen/living room afforded plenty of room for the 5 of us. Very clean and a nice fresh cabin. Will look to come again sometime!!

Best ever

  • 5 of 5
This is the best place ever to stay when visiting Athens or the Commerce outlets. The cabin is very cozy and smells like clean linen. The living room furniture appears new and the home is filled with interesting antiques. the fireplace was great on a cold November evening but they also have a brand new heating and cooling central system for those who do not want a fire. Advice: Pick up some firewood on your way there or just pick it up in the woods.

Needs Improvement

  • 3 of 5
My family an I stayed here for a weekend in September. The kitchen was well stocked and the location was very private. However the cabin is in need if a deep cleaning. Also it smells musty and the master bed smelled very musty. There may be mold in the upper lift ceiling. It is very black on the ceiling. Bathrooms were clean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I'm glad you found the cabin to be peaceful and the kitchen well stocked! I appreciate you letting me know about the musty smell! I will remedy this immediately! Perhaps it is due to all the rain recently. The cabin is professionally cleaned after each guest. I have always found the cabin to have a wonderfully pine smell since it was built from pine logs and the interior walls are all pine. We will make sure that future guests find it just as fresh and wonderful as ever!

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5
Nice relaxing cabin get away. Lovely setting. The cabin is in a treed area. The property dogs were sweet & friendly. They guided us to the cabin.
Our dog had a health crisis (seizures). We took him to UGA vet school late at night. I highly recommend the vet school. Wonderful place.
We enjoyed sitting on the porch. Next time I would like to sit a little more! Great place to read a book or two.
Beds were comfortable. Cabin is comfortable and homey. The bull frogs were singing in the evening.
Jamie , the owner, was very quick to answer questions & helpful.
We liked going into Athens and then coming back to the cabin for peace and quiet.
We enjoyed our stay. I hope we can come back in the future!
