Historic property of the Civil War era: Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is a 2,923 acre National Battlefield that preserves a key Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign. Over 67,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or captured during this campaign. The Park today has many hiking trails, including a trail to the top of Kennesaw Mountain, at 1800 feet, the highest point in the Atlanta metro area. You can walk up the 700 feet from the Visitor Center to summit, or take the bus!
Civil War Relics found on property: Based on the remnants of trench lines and skirmish pits we have found on our property, we know that it was a site of significant combat during the battle. We have found many Civil War relics on our property, including bullets, buttons, buckles and the like. You are of course welcome to walk the property, but we request that you leave it undisturbed. We consider all relics on the place to be part of the property. Just as you wouldn’t take our silverware home, we expect you will leave any relics you happen upon undisturbed.
We stayed at this property while attending an American Craft Council show at the Cobb Center in Atlanta. Our days were busy and the Atlanta traffic challenging, but when we returned to this perfect little cottage in the woods every night, all the stress of the day disappeared. The owners have done an outstanding job to make this rental comfortable, with attractive decor, and extremely well-thought amenities. The house was spotless, all three bedrooms "ensuite" (a master suite to die for), the multi-level decks and screen room inviting, and with a thoughtfully equipped kitchen. It seemed all our needs were anticipated. Not only would we stay there again, but we would heartily recommend this home to anyone desiring an island of tranquility in a very busy urban environment!
What a great place! Our kids didn't want to leave! Beautiful home, comfortable and well stocked. This is our hometown, so it made a stay back home feel so much more like home, rather than staying as a visitor in a hotel. We are already booking our stay next year!
The cottage is charming, more of a camp vibe except for the master suite! Beautiful! Loved the "off the beaten path" feel, yet close to stores and restaurants. They were well supplied with just about anything you could want. (They said they had shampoo, although I only found baby shampoo). Only 1 TV which could be an issue for some families. Screen on porch needs some repairs. We were in town for a graduation party, so didn't get to enjoy all the Kennesaw area had to offer. We did go up to Allatoona Lake and rented a pontoon boat. That was great! We would recommend Holiday Harbor Marina for rentals.
We truly loved our weekend stay at Kennesaw Cottage as it allowed four generations of us to have precious time together and when needed, time apart too. My mother in law commented it was the cleanest, well stocked home we ever stayed in and we have traveled together to many places. My father in law, who often prefers hotel lodging, was amazed by the Master suite which seems to go on forever. Having the Master bedroom on the other side of the main entry hall is also a plus for folks who may want serenity from the other two bedrooms and living areas. And we all appreciated the comfort and size of the common areas of the cottage. I should mention there are two conversation areas in the living room which made a big difference as the kids (when not outside exploring) sat on the large sofa and used the coffee table for games, electronics, books etc and the “men folk” reclined in classic, upholstered chairs that flanked the fireplace area like a small, private lodge. All three full baths are perfect, modern and colorful. My favorite room is the vast screened porch with comfy cozy vintage furniture, ceiling fan, assorted lighting options which create incredible ambiance that reflect the wooded peacefulness of a 1940’s campgrounds. Combine that with the fact that you’re mere minutes from major shopping and restaurants and it’s a win, win. It certainly was hard to leave Kennesaw Cottage in the woods. Book a stay, I believe you will very pleased you did.
We loved the house!!! It was clean, modernly furnished, and fully stocked. The owners left wonderful instructions which included local grocery stores and emergency medical clinics. I will definitely stay here again in the future.
Our Home Away experience was perfect! It was exactly as advertised, The cottage was clean, well maintained, and very well equipped! It was quite roomy, and absolutely lovely, inside and out. It is a treasure! We would recommend this property to anyone and everyone, and hope to rent it again ourselves.
