Spacious beautiful house in safe, quiet neighborhood , forest retreat yet convenient to everything, only 1 mile to restaurants ,stores and UGA Vet School. Near campus and 5 miles to downtown Athens. Hiking trails within walking distance of the house, mountain retreat yet close to thriving Athens. Booking Murphys Retreat 2 gives a couple or small family a private room and private bathroom. No hidden charges. To be clear, it’s not the entire house to yourself , however, USE of the entire house .
“Bonnie and Robert were wonderfully kind and attentive whenever we needed anything. Their home is beautiful! They made us (my 2 kids and I) feel comfortable enough to cook in their beautiful kitchen. Their dogs and cat were an extra special treat for us . They were so sweet. I wish we had more time to explore the trails in their neighborhood. Bonnie made great suggestions.for activities and dining. Lovely place and couple.”
We know you’ll enjoy the peaceful and serene environment of The Ivywood Barn. From the comfy king size bed, coffee on the large deck, picking blueberries right off the bushes when in season, cozy robes, the patio, fire pit and convenience to Athens and UGA, The Ivywood Barn might be just what you’re looking for. An Athens favorite for breakfast, Mama’s Boy, is less than a mile away. And, How ‘Bout Them Dawgs!, we’re only a short 5 mile drive to Sanford Stadium.
“Loved staying here! I actually only had one night booked, but enjoyed my stay so much, I extended an extra day. Very clean, easy check-in and loved the personal touches. Sometimes it's the little things and Emily clearly paid attention to all the details! Highly recommended!”

“I have stayed in a lot of really nice homes using Airbnb, but this one is my new favorite. Located in a quiet, peaceful and lovely neighborhood only 15 minutes from downtown Athens, this mid-century modern ranch is a wonderful place to stay. All the great amenities, including fruit and other snacks, drinks, coffee, tea, and personal hygiene items, were very much appreciated. The house is so cozy and comfortable. I especially love the big picture window in the living room where we were able to watch birds, chipmunks, and squirrels frolicking outside. We even saw deer! And the view of the water across the street was a bonus! Each bedroom is beautifully decorated and the bedding is so soft and comfortable! Clear instructions for how to use everything alleviated any stress over figuring things out. What a wonderful stay! We will definitely be back! Thank you!!”
