I rented Briggs' home as a place for my daughter and her wedding party to stay and get ready for the wedding. The kitchen and dining room was a perfect set up for the make up artist and hairstylist to get the wedding party ready. It also was a great background for wedding pictures prior to the ceremony. We really enjoyed sitting out on the porch when we did have some downtime. As one past guest indicated (which unfortunately I missed reading and hence would have known to expect this), it is clearly a home that the family lives in and vacates for the weekend so at times you may feel like you're invading a family's privacy because of all of their personal possessions in the home. We did have an issue with no space in the refrigerator which was unfortunate because I needed space for meals I was providing while getting ready for the wedding. Briggs was great and easy to work with. The home is beautiful with a lot of character! We really enjoyed our weekend there. There were terrible storms during our stay which knocked out the electricity in the master bedroom but it wasn't anything that we couldn't work around. Luckily it happened while the wedding was taking place and not prior to it! Overall, the house was great and provided just what we needed for our visit!

We had an awesome stay at Briggs' place. Beautiful, older home with everything that we needed for our stay. It was a 10 minute walk to all the action in downtown, but Boulevard is a quiet and residential neighborhood. Perfect for us. We'd definitely come back.

Briggs returned our emails promptly and was an excellent host. The location of the house was the best part of it. Beautiful living room and kitchen area. All around had a great stay at the house and enjoyed Athens.
