Come and spend a night at a non-profit animal sanctuary only 20 minutes from downtown Athens, GA!
Not only will you be able to enjoy 5 acres of beautiful woods, but you can also meet our array of rescued wildlife and immerse yourself in our mission to provide a safe home for our animal friends who cannot survive on their own. Our place is the perfect getaway for animal lovers who enjoy the great outdoors. Walk to our babbling creek, grill up some veggie burgers, or take a stroll through our animal area and meet our foxes and more. We will give you an unforgettable opportunity to get up close to some incredible creatures.
In addition to all there is to offer on site, we're also a mere 20 minute drive from downtown Athens, GA where you can walk to over 200 different bars and enjoy the vibrant music scene.
You will know that your money is being well spent as 100% of our income generated from VegVisits goes to caring for the animals on our property.
We live in a moderate home that was at one point converted from a barn. Furnishings are chic and contemporary. The available accommodations are a bedroom and full bath on the lower level with a twin trundle bed that can be made into a king.
Our kitchen is well kept and equipped with high end cookware. Appliances include a glass top stove, two ovens, microwave, large fridge, toaster, and dish washer. We also have an array of vegan cook books available.
Guests will have access to the entire lower level of the house (kitchen, living room, bedroom, full bath, washer/drier). Our living room has a PS3 with games and streaming available and a 60 inch TV. Guests are also encouraged to enjoy our patio and woods, and can explore the parts where our animal residents live during the day. Wifi is available as well.
We do not allow smoking on the property. Animals are allowed ONLY if they play well with others (including the friendly raccoon who lives free in the house). NO animal products are allowed anywhere on the property.
Because we are a home to so many animals, it is very important that guests follow all the listed rules to keep them safe and happy:
1. Guests are never to reach into animal enclosures. 2. Guests are not allowed in the animal areas after dark or when we are not home. 3. Guests are not to touch any non-domestic animals without our expressed permission and presence. 4. No feeding the animals.
We are very rural, you can really get away from it all out here!
