The Nelson Wells House, Athens Georgia
“Nelson is an impeccable host!” – Sherri, Nov 2019
NEW UPDATE 2020: Our home has just been nominated as one of the first AirBnB *Verified Home* Listings in Athens! The Nelson Wells House is an ideal modern build in classic cottage style just 3-blocks to downtown Athens, Georgia. I’m Nelson Wells, entertainment industry publicist, and I designed and built this cozy little home just steps to UGA, downtown and the stadium. 16-foot ceilings welcome you to a large open-format living-dining area with all stainless steel, slate fireplace & backsplash, hardwoods, custom cabinetry, and lots of sunlight. It’s a comfy cottage that easily sleeps 6 and 7 or 8 with little ones. Safety, privacy & discretion are #1 here.
We are proud and excited to share that our home has been nominated to be a part of “AirBnB Verified” launching this year. (Anyone thinking UGA bulldogs football? – Let’s hope so). “Safety, Discretion, & Attention to Detail” are all top priority which is what garnered the nomination. With the current Covid19 situation we’ve worked hard to offer not just a cut above the rest but the absolute best vacation rental Athens has to offer. We bring in the best cleaning crews who have been thoroughly vetted for professionalism and disinfecting know-how. We leave our guests with only the best cleaning products for their own use; products like Mrs. Meyers Clean Day in every room as well as disinfectants. And with a background in the entertainment industry with a nod to those seeking privacy, we are host to discerning guests some of whom are members of SAG or worldwide touring acts.
The Nelson Wells House is a Downtown Athens Cottage near the University of Georgia (UGA) in Athens, Georgia. This is our home, and it’s also a vacation rental house designed by me, Nelson Wells, publicist, promoter and co-founder at Team Clermont, indie music PR firm and talent house. I’m also co-founder of two of the cutest identical twin girls this side of the Mississippi.
Below are the details of our little home we rent out for UGA football games, weddings, and more. We typically rent directly through AirBnB, however it is possible to rent and contract our home directly through us.
An exquisite home in a quaint “cottage” footprint in Athens, Georgia designed for comfort and efficiency, this 3 bedroom home sleeps 6-7 comfortably and is only blocks from UGA, the University of Georgia bulldogs’ (the “bulldawgs” as they’re known locally) Stanford football stadium and just a 3-minute walk to 4-star and 5-star restaurants, unique bars, pubs, and coffee shops on the western edge of downtown Athens. As you enter the front door, our home welcomes you with 16-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless appliances, and black granite surface tops. Slate stone surrounds the gas log fireplace and covers the backsplash.
Rental Rate: We have specials regularly & rates change; See our page on AirBnB.com.
This is a recently-built modern Dwell-style 3-bedroom 3-bath custom-designed home in the shell of a quaint Craftsman cottage, fairly unique to downtown Athens. We are just a block or two from nationally ranked and James Beard-awarded restaurants (The National, Seabear Oyster Bar, Last Resort Grill, 5 & 10 and more), cafes, oyster bars, nightclubs, the UGA campus & all of downtown. Built in 2007, updates were completed in 2012. More updating has taken place in 2018.
You can expect the very best of in-town convenience with fine attention to detail. As you can see this home is designed with an eye for modern and minimalist detail yet with cozy bedrooms and living areas and also in a quaint Historic neighborhood just steps away from downtown Athens (literally 3 blocks walk) & the campus of The University of Georgia (UGA), as well as the Medical School Of Georgia on Prince Avenue just down the street.
Seven high-quality restaurants are within a 1 to 2 block walk. Three coffee shops and two coffee roasters are within a 2-3 block walk including Jittery Joe’s Coffee Roasters, The National, Seabear Oyster Bar, Viva Argentina, Hendershots Coffee & Bar, and the newest French-style cafe, Buvez!
We have a WALK SCORE of 89! (at the walk score site), which means EVERYTHING you could need is within walking distance from this charming edge-of-downtown neighborhood including 85+ pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, and 2 charming local grocery stores. Here’s a partial list: Gift shops, high-end liquor stores with wine tastings, MTB-mountain bike trails, mapped cycling loops, 5k & 10k run courses, jogging trails, bicycling neighborhoods, the Historic district of BLVD, the tour of homes routes, The State of Georgia Botanical Gardens and hiking trails, bird watching trails of Sandy Creek Nature Center, the beach & swimming & fishing lake Chapman at Sandy Creek Park and their frisbee-golf course, the public pool at Bishop Park, 3 top golf courses, and the walking tour of Athens Music History.

***We sometimes get Georgia football game tickets; it’s rare, but it can’t hurt to ask just in case we end up with an unclaimed ticket or two for sale, purchase or trade.
