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

Southern Waterbeds & Futons, located in Athens, Georgia, is the oldest waterbed store in the south. It has been owned and operated by the same owner, Lynn Hardman, for forty-nine years.

See our Wood Frame Waterbed Packages page for hardside waterbeds and inventory updates. We have five different hardside waterbeds set up in the store that you can "Test Rest" in order to help you decide which watermattress would be the most comfortable for you.

There are six softside waterbeds set up in the showroom for you to try out and they are usually in stock in case you decide to pick one up. See our Softside Waterbed Systems page for more information.
