Looking for a real Waterbed Store? This is the only one in the South. 

Southern Waterbeds, located in Athens, Georgia, is the oldest waterbed store in Georgia and has been owned and operated by the same owner, Lynn Hardman, for forty eight years.

We are currently limited on hardside waterbed frames and headboards (see our Wood Frame Waterbed Packages page for details) but we do have all of the replacement parts in stock including five different hardside waterbeds set up in the store that you can "Test Rest" before purchasing.

There are six softside waterbeds set up in the showroom for you to try out and they are usually in stock for quick cash and carry sales. See our Softside Waterbed Systems page for more details about picking up or shipping our softside systems. If you're making a special trip for a pick up, call ahead and we'll double check our inventory for you.
