I’m a Georgia girl and always will be. Even though I live in Vegas. After being away for about eight years, my mom and I decided to make a trip back and visit some old haunts and friends that still lived in Atlanta. I’m a major fan of cool discount travel… Jetsetter, Groupon, Living Social; that kind. I found an AMAZING deal for a suite here and after checking reviews, decided to go for it. Not only was it a great price for a really perfect location; it was also the biggest room in the house! And by house, I mean house. It used to be a house.
We got here WAY early since we took the redeye but the owners were awake and cooking so they let us in, took our bags, and told us as soon as our room was open, they would bring our bags to our room. The house is GORGEOUS. We did some sightseeing (my version, which included a one hour drive to the sticks) and came back after check-in.
There is never a lack of food and refreshment in this B&B. And the term B&B is kind of loose. It’s like an upscale boutique/B&B. It has all the quaintness of a B&B and all the conveniences of a boutique hotel (and the cool factor). The innkeeper (Caroline, such a sweetheart) bakes some awesomeness every single day and puts it in the dining room for guests. There is a fully stocked cupboard in the parlor with drinks and cookies. Upstairs there are fixings for coffee and tea. There are books and movies scattered around. And unlike a regular B&B, the bathrooms are severely upgraded (and not the shared kind).
Breakfast was an explosion of flavor (my attempt to sound really really pretentious but it was true) and we didn’t feel forced to mingle with the other guests (even though we did). The location was perfect for us (right down the way from the Margaret Mitchell House and a Marta station); however, the house is a bit difficult to find. It is in a fairly residential area and everything with the word Piedmont gets confusing. Even for a former local. The house is also by Piedmont Park and a long-ish but beautiful walk from Virginia Highland. I absolutely adore this B&B and would love to stay here again next time!
