Description

Athens, GA. 5-7 minutes from the University of Georgia. 10 minute walk to downtown Athens. Paved parking area . Trees you can sit under. Fenced property. We are a small coffee roaster so there is wifi and good coffee! Fair warning we are near an active railroad track and the engines love to blow the airhorn. Other than that it is a peaceful and quiet neighborhood!

Good location

Enjoyed our 1 night stay. It was conveniently located to things we wanted to do and the locked gated lot made us feel secure.

Great Spot!

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at Jittery Joe's, and had a great experience. The parking area is walking distance to an adorable downtown area, with parks, art, music, etc. Plus, it's a coffee shop! All the staff we met were friendly and very helpful in finding things to do and places to eat around town. The trains do like to blast their horn at all hours, but we were able to relax and sleep just fine. I do hope we can come back in the future and spend more time with these wonderful people in Athens.

Unbelievable hosts and location.

We booked to stay 2 nights at Jittery Joes Coffee Roaster and could not believe our luck when we turned up!

Not only is this location less than 10 minutes walk to Downtown Athens, but the staff (and owner) were amazing and helpful with everything including local recommendations.

The smell from the roaster is incredible and the site itself is spacious and secure.

We bought lots of (excellent) coffee from Stephen (?) who was so informative and passionate about the coffee they sold.

Another highlight was meeting a local artist Vernon Thornsberry.

We would love another chance to stay there again! Thank you guys!

Great place to stay

This was our first Boondockers Welcome experience, and it was great! Bgooge was so friendly and accommodating. We parked in the private, secure (gated) lot outside his coffee roasting business. Yes, the train goes by and makes a bit of a racket, but we only heard it twice -- just before we went to sleep (around midnight) and in the morning. No big deal. The location's fantastic -- just a quick walk to a handful of restaurants (we ate at Grit, which we'd recommend), and a bit further on to all of downtown Athens, the university, etc.

Thank you, Bgooge, for a wonderful stay!

Long day and a great place to land

Heat index was in the 100s... grateful for the shade and being able to run my generator. I think it will cool off enough to sleep with everything open. Staff here is wonderful and accommodating. The aroma of this place is intoxicating. Looking forward to my morning brew before I hit the road. Thanx so much!

Coffee, rain and #$@ Generator!

Raining when we got there, but the coffee shop was still open. Our host was very friendly, came out in the rain to show us where we could park. Lots of choices. Our generator acted up in the morning so we took off in search of an Onan dealer... We’d definitely return and hopefully in better weather. These hosts are SO invited to visit us in Canada.

Great Stop Over

Great space, staff and coffee. Has a few trains for entertainment, but kind of fun. Coffee Roaster and staff were nice to talk with. We will stop again and again.

Great spot in Athens!

This was our first Boondocker experience and it was a positive one. The location is a coffee roasting facility--no need to worry about brewing your own cup in the mornings. The staff was very welcoming and friendly! There is a fence around the parameters that made us feel safe. It is near an active train that can be very loud (and long!) at times. Lots of space to park your camper and is close to the downtown area. The owner/fellow Boondocker introduced himself on the last night we were there and was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Made me feel completely welcome and at ease.

This was my first time contacting someone through 'boondockerswelcome.' My host was super responsive, super friendly and gave me a great place to park my rig for a couple of days. The location is a business and very walkable to downtown Athens and great places for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

It's close to train tracks which is a plus as far as my wife and I are concerned. My friend commented... "Enjoy the trains! That's the old Seaboard Airline's mainline from Richmond to Birmingham, now CSX. Those tracks first came through Athens in the 1880's."

I would most certainly stay here again as long as the welcome mat is still out.
