Why Brad Garrison chose Athens

I just loved the idea of having a historic home from an era gone by and the location just can not be beat. The house was originally part of the Cloverhurst Estate that encompassed over 240 acres of the current Five Points area.

Sitting just two blocks from S. Milledge Avenue and a block from Baxter Street I just knew that this home was the one for me. I now have the beautiful historic home that I was looking for, and the ability to walk to all the shops and restaurants in Five Points as well as the UGA campus, and downtown Athens in just a matter of minutes.

McWhorter House: Incredible Ambassador for Athens

  • 5 of 5
4 of us came into Athens for the 2013 AthHalf (half marathon) and were impressed by the pictures but blown away by the actual house. Coming in from Chattanooga after work, our 9:30pm arrival could not have been nicer since we didn't know what we were in for. Brad had the keys waiting for us, so we didn't need to stress about coordinating anything.

The layout of the house is incredible -- an open floorplan makes this a very social house; I can only imagine how great this place is on a game day. Massive TVs in the two (2!) sitting areas let us put 2 games on, or game in room 1 with HGTV in room 2 depending on the audience.

Other items of note: gas oven, so plan on doing some cooking at home, amazing HE front-load washer/dryer, and ample parking for multiple cars. The house even came with a good selection of menus and (!) a Kroger card. It's central location put it within a mile or so from Fresh Market, Earth Fare, and a Kroger. For coffee, 5 Points is a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Jittery Joe's.

Really loved the home and looking forward to our next trip.

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the historic McWhorter House during the move to our new home in Athens. The stay was incredible and we enjoyed every minute of it! The house is convenient to everything, comfortable and the absolute best for game days in Athens! It has everything you need from plenty of great furniture to huge flat screen TV's for the game. The parking is more than enough, there is a garage for storage and an incredible front porch. We live right down the street now and would be first in line to rent out the house again for our friend to visit Athens on game weekends! Can't say enough good things.

Our family truly enjoyed staying in this wonderful home in Athens. It was very clean, had really comfortable beds, plenty of space to visit (2 living areas!) and big front porch for relaxing. It was just what we needed!

Lots of charm and all the modern amenities

  • 5 of 5
This great old house was even better than the pictures. Instead of a hotel room we decided to stay in this home and it truly felt like home with everything in the kitchen you need, wireless internet, big screen TVs, and a great feel for UGA with the pictures and trimmings. Can't wait to stay here on our next trip.
