About this property

The Mure House on the Hodgson Estate

Adults-only hostel in Athens
We have recently opened up the Mure House to guests. So come and enjoy the awesomeness of Athens in total style. The Mure House was built in 1893 in the midst of the Hodgson Estate's rich pecan orchard. It has been renovated and preserved and ready for your pleasure. The Mure House includes a total of 4 rooms that are available for rent on the second floor but this rental listing only includes three of the four rooms and will sleep 8. If you need the 4th room, contact the host and he can prepare a quote. *Gold Room - Queen bed and pull-down Full Murphy Bed, Kitchen, Bath Red Room - Queen bed Blue Room - Full bed **Optional Green Room - Queen bed A second bath is available in the hallway for the Red and Blue Rooms. *The Gold Room is absolutely included and the rental will also include two of the other rooms and a total of 2 private baths. **The Green room may be available if you need a 4th room. If you do, just send a inquiry to the owner and we can set up a custom arrangement for you. Game Day Ready - just 1.8 miles from Sanford Stadium - certainly walkable. This is a historic 1893 Victorian home located on the Hodgson's former estate and nestled within their old pecan orchard. FIRST OF ALL, we clean. Unlike a hotel, we wash not just the sheets, but the blankets, comforter and mattress pads between each visit. Perfect place for your Game Day visit - you can walk to the stadium from here, yes it is a huff but certainly walkable and I have done it many times with my kids. Plus, you can relax on the front porch and watch all the game day traffic walking or driving down Prince Ave. Come early and breath in Athens. Your room is situated on the border of the Cobham historic district and Normal Town/Boulevard. You are just a few short blocks away from Athens legendary restaurants such as The White Tiger, The Grit, Maepole, Ike and Janes, Agua Linda, HiLo, Automatic Pizza, Taqueria Del Sol, Half Shepherds, Sea Bear, Viva and many more . You are also just a short walk to get to the Foundary, Normal Town Bar and downtown Athens. Sips or Hendershots coffee shops/bars are a few short blocks away. The best steaming hot and bacon smelling breakfast joints are just around the corner. Walk to Ike and Jane's for hot breakfast sandwiches and fresh pastries, the Bread Basket for awesome country biscuits and breakfast plates, Dunkin Donuts and of course Krystal's with a fresh 3 shelled-egg, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 pieces of toast and grits all for $5.00 (the home owners favorite). Want a massage or spa treatment? 2 blocks away is the Urban Sanctuary or, a little bit further of a walk is the Foundary. You can easily walk to downtown venues like the Melting Pot, Classic Center, 40 Watts, Creature Comforts Brewery or the Georgia Theatre and walk or Uber back home.
