We designed this retreat to be everything you need to escape for a few days or for a longer sabbatical, no matter how active or sedentary a respite your heart desires. Whether you are on a business trip and don’t want to have a “hotel experience” or you want a charming and convenient location for visiting the northern part of Atlanta, this will be perfect. (There are very few bed-and-breakfasts in this area.)
About the apartment:
Paint, carpet, heat & air, and appliances are all new and fresh.

Hi, my husband and I share lots of the same hobbies... we scuba dive, fly a small plane, hike, kayak and swim/bike/run... yes, we are enjoying triathlons in our golden years. :)
This is the home where I raised my kids and it has lots of memories for us all. It has been completely remodeled and expanded... adding lots of windows and skylights, vaulting ceilings and so much more. Each of the five bedrooms is either on its own private floor or private wing of the home. And each bedroom has its own private bath and private access to the outdoors. It's truly charming and unique.
There are so many things to do in Atlanta and especially on the north side of town. This home is nestled on a quiet street. This apartment, in particular, is packed with intimate quaintness and unexpected nooks and crannies... with lots of doors that go our onto your own huge deck. All of it is laced with beautifully filtered light from many oak trees that populate the back and side yard. It is so much better than a hotel...
