Outstanding B&B

Pin It

My wife chose this B&B after all the hotels were booked in downtown and midtown Atlanta for Labor Day weekend. If you are driving, the entrance is tricky. When driving north on Piedmont, it is the second house on the right past 8th St. The driveway is just past the house. Don’t feel bad if you miss it. Most everyone the first time there. Once you make the right turn into the driveway, there are a couple of parking places at the front driveway and more on up the driveway behind the house.

The front door is normally locked. Ring the doorbell and let whoever answers know you are there to check in. Otherwise, they’ll think you’re there to tour the place.

But if you are a guest checking in, be prepared for a tour of the house. It is a historic house built in the late 19th century that has been refurbished with modern amenities. The tour takes a while so if you’re tired from a long trip you may want to tell them to postpone the house tour until later.

We stayed in the Master Suite. It has a huge walk-in shower, tub, separate toilet room and a walk-in closet. The bedroom and living area is one large room with a separate room for a work desk near the entrance to the suite.

The bed is very comfortable with high count sheets. I usually don’t sleep when I’m traveling but I wanted to sleep late in this bed. i just couldn’t wake up!

The TV has a mix of high def channels and standard def channels. WiFi speed is very good. The code is on a card on the desk.

Breakfast is wonderful. Prepare to be well fed. We normally delayed lunch or had an early dinner after eating breakfast. It is served around a gorgeous dining room table with other guests. You will be quizzed on your previous day or what you will be doing after breakfast. You will also get some great recommendations from the hosts, if you need some.

Noise from Piedmont is very minimal, considering the location. They have done a great job soundproofing the house.
