About Bob Clydesdale

Bob is an attorney and Karen an interior designer. Karen operated a design studio in the Mill House before converting it back to its original use as a residence for mill workers and their families. She kept the interior architecture open and modern while embracing the historical preservation guidelines.

Bob Clydesdale purchased this house in 1994

Why Bob Clydesdale chose Metro Atlanta

A very unique location and historical feeling. You can see the town square at the top of the street where weddings and special events are held every weekend surrounded by restaurants. A covered bridge next to the Roswell Mill is across the street. The ruins of the old Roswell Mill burned in the Civil War Battle of Atlanta are part of the extensive hiking trails.

What makes this house unique

Perfect for wedding parties, reunions, executive housing or family visits. Close to events and restaurants. Near GA 400 for 25 minute car ride to down town Atlanta. Two blocks from Church Street where the ten churches have weddings every weekend. Quiet street and hiking into the Chattahoochee Forest Preserve. Two antebellum mansions on the square and Smith Plantation a mile away open for touring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and Karen- Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We really appreciated the attention to detail in the décor- no doubt done by Karen and all the special touches. We are sad to have to leave here but we are off to Savannah. Hope that house can measure up after this on…lol. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Enjoyable week in this cozy home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days and enjoyed it immensely. There were plenty of beds in the house. The house was clean and tidy. Everything was in working order. The 1 bathroom was big although the shower itself is pretty small. Plenty of water pressure. The location is great. Easy access to everywhere you need to go. I would definitely stay here again. It was perfect for our ten day stay in Atlanta.

I want to move in!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous, immaculate, professionally landscaped house with a wonderfully equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable beds, and warm living spaces, all close to restaurants, shops, etc. As a bonus, it is a short walk - practically across the street - to the Chattahoochee Nature Reserve, with great trails. And it comes with two bikes! The owner was terrific at communicating, made everything easy, it really was perfect.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my wedding weekend. Due to a combination of an Indian/Hindu and Catholic wedding, the event was several days long so I rented the property from Thursday - Monday. I requested to check in a couple of hours early (2:00 instead of 4:00) and Bob was very accommodating to my request. The house was already cleaned and setup prior to my early check in even though Bob had disclaimed that the cleaners may still have been there at 2:00.

The home is very elegant and comfortable. Thursday and Friday, it was just me and my sister-in-law who stayed the night there, but the house was used to its full potential all Saturday. We had all the bridesmaids and the moms there on Saturday to get dressed for the wedding. It was such a convenient location for us since our events were at Roswell Historic Cottage, St. Peter Chanel and Ivy Hall. The property is a wonderfully centralized location in downtown Roswell.

Just a couple of things that we had to do - ran out to get some extra toilet paper and paper towels. The one roll each might have been fine for a couple of folks staying there, but since we were pretty packed Saturday, we needed to get some more. No fault of the owner - just a heads up in case you might have a few folks at the house. We were also searching for outlets upstairs for phone chargers and hair dryers, but then again, this is a historic home so that comes with the design.

Overall, wonderful stay! We all enjoyed the property and will not hesitate renting it again!

be prepared

  • 3 of 5

Location was great and the house was comfortable, but need to be prepared for oddities. For one no wash clothes. Although a nice kitchen, the fire alarm starts as soon as you turn on the gas range so don't plan to cook much.

Owner's Response: We always strive to a problem free and normal experience for guests to the 1853 Millhouse. We have now purchased wash clothes in addition to the sponges in the kitchen so it doesn't seem odd to future guests. We like to provide new sponges for every new guest. But will now have laundered wash clothes in addition. Not sure why the smoke detector went off when these guests were cooking. The smoke detector will be replaced when the current guests depart next week. So far the detector seems to be working normally for them and the family before them.

Perfect Family Gathering Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2 sons rented the beautiful Mill House in Roswell because of its proximity to the Roswell Mill Club where we attended a family wedding reception. The Mill House was our family meeting place between the ceremony and the reception. It was a perfect place for my family to re-unite and make some great memories. Our sons enjoyed riding the bikes provided with the property, and my husband and I enjoyed having our coffee out on the porch in the mornings. The house is beautifully decorated, the owners were very gracious, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was the perfect family gathering place!
