This was our first stay at The Cottage at Old Sweet Song and we couldn't have been more pleased with the cottage, property, and nearby offerings. One feels as if they have the amenities of a hotel with the privacy of a cottage. The property is beautifully wooded. It offers a swimming pool, lovely multi-level deck, water features, natural surroundings with a variety of plants, a grill, restful sitting/reclining areas, and a peaceful Labyrinth to walk. There is also a workout room which is very well equipped. If you are musically inclined or a railroad enthusiast, you will find many special touches in the Cottage to enjoy. The main room of the cottage provides very comfortable seating, television (if needed), a view of nature, and an impresive library. The bedroom is cozy and decorated nicely. A desk contains helpful brochures and directions and recommendations of activities. The bathroom is clean and has a nice shower with all you need. The owners are pet lovers, a plus in our situation. However, this cottage would be just as good for those without them as they are respectful of their guests needs.
We walked to the adjacent Pittard Park and enjoyed the paths and nature trail, observing the Community Garden, Historical buildings, pretty park benches, and even tried Disc Golf for the first time. All very well done, clean, and especially outstanding for a small town! City events / options in Athens are deceptively close.
Jack and Emily allow you complete privacy, but are readily available for questions or assistance. On a personal note, we appreciated the wealth of information about the area. This is a gem!
