What took us so long to find this place? This is a wonderful traditional B&b located on the outskirts of Athens. The room/bath were comfortable and immaculate. The home is filled with beautiful European furniture and feels so welcoming. It is located on a property called angel oaks farm which is a horse farm. Its so serene with ample grounds... More

Awesome Experience from start to finish! Colonel Marc was an incredible host and truly a genuine person. He really does care about each individuals stay while on his beautiful property. I would recommend this B&B for anyone staying in or around Athens GA!

My husband and I enjoyed staying with Colonel Mark for one night. The weather was cool so several windows in the house were open allowing fresh air to flow through. There is a stable in the back of the house with pretty horses to pet. The swimming pool has a relaxing fountain that could be heard from our room #4.... More

We highly recommend this B&B in the Athens area. We had a wonderful 3-night stay at The Colonels the weekend of August 9th. Colonel Marc was very attentive and helpful in providing suggestions for things to do and making dinner reservations. He prepared delicious breakfasts every morning. The house was beautiful and well-decorated with antique furniture, the accommodations were very... More

My husband and I stayed at The Colonels on the last night of our honeymoon (a 3 week road trip) - my brother and his wife had stayed here a few years ago and highly recommended it. We are so glad that we took their advice. The Colonels is a beautiful house in lovely grounds, and Colonel Marc himself is... More

What a beautiful and welcoming place. We stayed here in late May and had the most relaxing night Colonel Marc's stunning old house. The grounds are beautiful and Marc is great at suggesting things to do. Make sure to take a stroll around to see the trees and horses, and eat every last bite of his delicious breakfast!

Sitting outside the porch in the afternoon... More

We stayed here over the week of Thanksgiving. We had an excellent room and Colonel Marc and Lady Colonel Beth are excellent hosts. In particular, Colonel Marc is very good at providing tips on things to do and see in and around the Athens' area, as well as being an excellent and diverse chef for breakfast. All of our meals...

The sleeping rooms and public spaces are wonderfully furnished with European antiques and period pieces. Col. Mark and his wife Col. Bev are wonderful hosts, Col. Mark, in particular with his old world Belgian accent and... More

We love B&Bs, and The Colonels just outside of Athens GA is absolutely top-notch. Colonel Mark is a fantastic host and chef. In addition to the two of us, we were there with our son and his 2 teenage daughters. Our granddaughters totally fell in love with both Colonel Mark, his breakfast feast, and the 'southern mansion and grounds.' The... More
