This private, exceptionally clean 2nd story apartment is just 4 miles from Athens via a single county road. It overlooks a 3-acre pond on 5 acres in a safe and beautiful rural subdivision. With all the amenities you need, including fast wi-fi, it’s a great place to stay if you are visiting OU, attending music festivals or Fur Peace Ranch, hiking at Hocking Hills, or if you are looking for an inspirational writer’s/artist’s retreat. No swimming/boating/beach. Maximum occupancy: 4 This second-story apartment is 800+ square feet and has a separate entrance from the owner's home. It is very private and features a gorgeous view from the deck, as well as amenities you have at home, including a fully-equipped kitchen, television (stream live TV, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and PBS), towels, bedding, blow dryer, toiletries, and more. You will have wireless access and internet as well. The apartment has one bedroom with a queen-size bed, a twin mattress stashed in the closet area (sheets and quilt in bench, also in closet area), and a full-size pull-out sofa bed in the living room (bedding in white cabinet under television). You have full access to the apartment.The deck outside the apartment has a small table and chairs and offers a stunning view. You are welcome to stroll the grassy lane on the other side of the pond across from our house, go fishing (but bring your own pole), or have a picnic, Swimming and kayaking are not permitted. Our own private “yard” is on the opposite end of the house. If you wander over to the other side of the pond, you may spot my husband gardening or working on an outdoor project in our yard. We are more than happy to help you with just about anything you need! Simply text or walk on down around the deck to our front door. We are equally happy to leave you alone if that's what you'd prefer! When we first moved into this neighborhood, we felt like we'd moved into a state park. Trees and wildlife abound! You are likely to see deer up close and personal as well as all types of wildlife that is attracted to water. We have a heron that makes our pond its home. Guests share our driveway which will easily accommodate our car as well as yours but can also accommodate a second guest’s car. Please let us know if your party will be arriving in two automobiles so we can make arrangements. We ask that guests park on the right side of the drive, under the overhang. We share the driveway and park to your left. We are not near public transportation but are a short drive into town. For those who want to enjoy the nightlife and/or the outstanding breweries in and around Athens, both Lyft and cab services are available. One main road, County Road 25 takes you from our subdivision straight into Athens, though it's hardly a "straight road." It weaves and curves along a gorgeous route. We live in the hills and, therefore, guests should set up their cell phones for wireless calling. We no longer keep food in the apartment. Food has gotten pricey and we didn't want to pass that onto our guests, especially since so few guests actually ate the food. We continue to keep good coffee, raw, organic sugar, and one small container of organic milk per guest in the apartment. The apartment has its own HVAC system, so guests stay comfortable whatever the weather/season. We do ask that guests be eco conscious by setting AC to 74 degrees and furnace to 67 degrees if they are out of the apartment for long stretches. The thermostat can easily be re-adjusted upon returning home. We have a moderate cancellation policy, meaning that if you need to cancel, and if you do it more than 5 days in advance, you will be fully refunded. During the winter, we are happy to reimburse guests whose visits are cancelled at the last minute due to snow and/or ice; however, Airbnb will retain their service fee. Check-in is easy! We typically leave the apartment door open when we know a guest is arriving. Athens is located in the foothills, so expect hilly terrain. No problem in the spring, summer, and fall, but winter can get dicey. Winter guests are wise to book last minute so they know what the weather will be. As little as a couple of inches make travel outside the city challenging if not dangerous. Water’s Edge sits above Athens but the house, itself, is at the base of a hill. We have a moderate cancellation policy; however, if you book in advance and winter weather prevents you from getting around the area safely once you arrive, we are happy to refund your payment for any nights you are unable to stay — minus any Airbnb fees. Please keep in mind we do not allow pets under any circumstances. Although we are animal lovers, we keep the apartment animal-free. (Documented support pets are the only exception. See “house rules.”) Measures to protect your health: If you’ve read our reviews, you know that many of our guests have rated Water’s Edge as exceptionally clean. Even before fears of a mysterious (corona) virus emerged, we took every cleaning measure we could to ensure our guests’ safety, including wiping down surfaces with disinfectant wash (paying special attention to door knobs, light and lamp switches, faucet handles, and the TV remote). We use anti-allergen covers for mattresses and bed pillows (please don't remove; these are washed regularly) Please note that we keep disinfectant wipes under the kitchen sink. We open windows (even in the winter) between guest visits in order to fully ventilate the space.
