Outstanding location in leafy in-town, historic neighborhood. Original art graces this custom built, airy second story retreat, built as a guest suite to our historically renovated 1925 home. Walkable to 10+ restaurants and public transportation. We offer private off-street parking for one car. Any additional visitors beyond those spending the night should be cleared with us in advance.
High ceilings, french doors, granite countertops, wide plank hardwood floors, an inviting fireplace and its location in the trees, creates a serene retreat for your visit, whether for business or pleasure. Everything is "custom" about this carriage house which was lovingly built in 2008 as a guest suite for family visits with the same attention to detail as our historically renovated 1925 home. With its separate bedroom and twin beds, it is ideal for two people. Note that upon request these twins can be converted to a king (we have a "converter", as well as a thick king mattress pad and king sheets).
The carriage house backs up to a lovely wooded nature trail and neighborhood park, is one block from the 55 acre Clear Creek Preserve, but is only two to three blocks from the bustle of Atlanta's Peachtree Street.
The kitchen area includes a microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, under-counter refrigerator (with full size ice maker) and sink. There is not a stove but one of our guests thoughtfully left a hot plate, saute pan and crock pot!
Note that we do not charge a separate cleaning fee.
Our location is excellent for access to mid-town and downtown Atlanta as well as the new upscale Buckhead Atlanta shopping development ("a slice of Rodeo Drive in Atlanta"), Lenox and Phipps Plaza shopping centers.
Disponible para huéspedes
We offer private off-street parking for one car (please let us know if you will have more than one car and we will try to accommodate), cable TV and wifi and a private patio and backyard. There is also a dedicated washer-dryer that is available to long term guests. We are within several blocks of a wide range of restaurants (including several award winning restaurants) including Egg Harbor Cafe, which is a favorite breakfast spot, Saltyard, Watershed, Ted's Montana Grill, Uncle Julio's (Mexican), Tuk Tuk (Thai), Bell Street Burrito, R. Thomas, Gusto, Chik-fil-A, Wendy's and Chipotle. We are also about a mile and a half from Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and within walking distance of Piedmont Hospital and its health club where guests can purchase a $15 day pass (information is available about this in the Carriage House). The 110 bus, which runs up and down Peachtree (5 minute walk from our house) can take you south to midtown and downtown or north up to the West Paces and Lenox shopping areas.
Atención a los huéspedes
We have loved being Airbnb hosts and will provide as much interaction as our guests would like. The carriage house offers privacy if it is desired but we will always be in town and available when guests are with us (or will let you know in advance of your booking if we will not be) and encourage you to contact us for any reason. We love Atlanta and are keen to share ideas on Atlanta attractions or offer any ideas to make your stay memorable.
Otros aspectos destacables
We also provide soap, shampoo and conditioner, a hair dryer, two fluffy robes, an iron and ironing board. complimentary coffee and tea (Keurig Coffee Maker), snacks, cereal and fresh fruit. You would not want Kathy cooking for you! We encourage guests who want a more substantial breakfast to walk up the street to Egg Harbor, our favorite breakfast spot.
Please note that we are happy to convert the twin beds into a king for you (we have a converter, thick king pad and sheets).
We have not listed our space as "kid friendly" only because of the stairs; but we have had some delightful young gentlemen who visited with their mothers or fathers as well as toddlers and babies. We have a basic IKEA high chair that you are welcome to use.
Also, we are happy to wash sheets and towels in Seventh Generation Free and Clear if you request it in advance (one of our guests gave us this idea).
We welcome up to two guests on our property who are staying overnight. Additional visitors must be pre-cleared with us in advance and will need to park on the street. Sorry but no smoking, pets or parties! We love pets and have many, but we need to maintain the carriage house as a "pet free zone" for our visitors and family members with allergies.

Boyd and I have lived in Atlanta since 1998 when we moved from Houston. We have two daughters; Brooke is a sophomore at Colby College in Maine and Casey is a sophomore at N. Atlanta High School. We completed construction of our carriage house in 2008 as part of a historical renovation of our 1925 home. We wanted to create an inviting and comfortable guest suite for our parents, who were allergic to the menagerie of animals that live in our house. In my "previous life" I was a bond analyst and trader, but now manage a boutique law firm. Boyd recently "retired" from running a healthcare company and currently consults to the healthcare industry. We are skiers (got married in Vail in 1988) and hikers and love to escape to the Colorado mountains every summer. We also got the Africa bug a couple of decades ago and have spent time in Tanzania, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Boyd has recently taken up biking and rides the Beltline every day he is in town. Casey and I are very involved in a mother-daughter volunteer organization and spend time helping out at the Botanical Garden, Children's Healthcare, Piedmont Hospital, FurKids, AGAPE, the Ronald McDonald House, the Food Bank, Buckhead Christian Ministries and City of Refuge.
Airbnb has transformed our lives by bringing us so many delightful and interesting guests. We love helping them have a great experience in Atlanta.
