“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.”

“This is such a great place to stay while in Athens. Incredibly spacious, beautifully decorated, and the location is ideal. The best part is the host. Ben was so accommodating to our needs and was flexible with us which makes the whole experience that much better. We will definitely be back!”
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.
“Adorable space with a lot of great touches! My mom and I just needed somewhere to stay overnight after a long day visiting in Athens - I wish we'd have been able to stay longer, and that the weather were nicer so we could have enjoyed the gorgeous patio space. Super comfortable bed. We would definitely stay here again!”
