About The Owner

Jon, Jennifer and Jake Cooper live in Atlanta, where they love the Braves and Hawks. Jennifer graduated from Auburn University in 1991, and Jon graduated from the University of Maryland in 1983. Jake is still undecided about where, or if, he'll pursue higher education.

Why The Owner chose River Heritage Alabama

Jon was unfamiliar with SEC football until Jennifer came along. He now knows what he'd been missing. After moving from New York to Atlanta, they enjoyed Auburn season tickets, until Jake was born. Now that Jake is old enough to enjoy Auburn football -- and basketball, baseball, etc. -- we spend a lot of time on the Auburn campus.

What makes this house unique

In addition to being walking distance from the Auburn campus and Jordan-Hare Stadium, the house is also near a public pool near the junior high (about two blocks away). Chewacla State Park and a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course are also nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in the "little house." Our kids had a blast at their first Auburn game. War Eagle!

Comfy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this comfortable cottage. It is like stepping back in time to grandma's house. It's proximity to Auburn campus made our Camp War Eagle experience much more convenient. Everything we needed was provided. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Jennifer made this trip BEYOND easy. Every message I sent her was answered promptly, and she had an answer for every single question we asked! I would most definitely book with her again!

Very Convenient to Campus

  • 5 of 5

This is an old and quaint little house within walking distance to campus. We were in Auburn for a swim meet, and it was very convenient to have a washer/dryer for towels and bathing suits. The house was clean and well maintained for a weekend stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Brian! So glad you enjoyed your stay. The house does have that comfortable, cozy feel that's found in homes from an earlier time. It was built in 1947 by the original owner, and you definitely sense the expertise and care that went into it. We've added some updates (central heat/air and a new bathroom, for example) without diminishing the charm :-)

Great little place. Walking distance to our tailgate. Enjoyed the quite time there. Will most likely stay there again during the football season.
