Your room is furnished with a full bed dressed in cotton and down, a night stand, lamps, and closet space. The shared space is an open floor plan with dining table overlooking the outdoor space. Simple mid-century furnishings and local art are all around. If you do not like dogs, this is not the place for you. My dog will make you feel guarded and loved while you are here. Blossom is a sweet 70 lb Akita / Shepherd mix. You will never sneak in without her announcing your arrival so don't worry about it :)
Relax with coffee or tea in the morning on the front porch overlooking a huge local park that features green space, tennis courts, picnic pavilions with outdoor grills and a playground as well as our own public velodrome for the avid cyclists. The backyard is lovely with multiple decks, outdoor seating around the chiminea, and a picnic table by the fire ring. Winding down on the back deck with a night cap can be really sweet. This is an urban location that feels like an oasis. Whether you need a nice clean and comfy space for an overnight layover from Hartsfield, you are here to tour our City for several days, or you are possibly relocating and need furnished accommodations for several weeks...come be our guest!
Although this is a small home, your room is down the hall from the living space so you are welcome to interact with us or just come and retreat to your space. You can also step out on the front porch or the back deck for a bit of privacy for calls, coffee and just your own quiet calm.
Margie is a gracious and helpful hostess. She made my stay in Atlanta very comfortable. Margie was accommodating and communicated promptly. If you get the chance, eat at the local restaurants she recommends.
It has been a pleasure staying at Margie's. Blossom was very calm and lovable. I take some time getting used to dogs, but Blossom was so easy to get along with. She was exceptionally sweet. The place is very clean as depicted in the listing.
The neighborhood felt safe and quite. Communication was a breeze with Margie :) She helped me find local restaurants (even on Thanksgiving holiday). She knows Atlanta like the back of her hand.
Would definitely stay at this place in the future when ever I visit Atlanta.
I had such a great time staying with Margie! She is literally the perfect host - so friendly and welcoming. Her house is beautiful and really not far from the city center. Though a little tricky to get to without a car, don't let this put you off, its a great place to stay!!
Margie was the best host yet. An aspiring bed and breakfast owner, she surpasses a meager 5 star host and naturally becomes a many starred friend. She was very thoughtful and I greatly enjoyed talking with her through the evening. She knows Atlanta like a local and gives you great advice. Great price for the quality!
What can I say? My stay with Margie was perfect. Her home is very inviting, clean and comfortable. The bed was absolutely the most comfy I have slept on. Privacy is respected, but Margie is willing to help out with details and whatever else if needed. I would absolutely stay with her again
Staying with Margie was like visiting with an old friend. Margie made me feel completely at home and gave me lots of information about the area. She is an Atlanta girl through and through! And, her sweet dog, Blossom, was so well behaved! Thank you, Margie, for making the beginning of this adventure a happy experience. I am grateful!
Margie is a very nice host! She is so welcoming and we loved staying at her house. Her dog Blossom is also very sweet and did a perfect job in welcoming us in Atlanta (Margie herself was not home the time we arrived).
Love to stay there again some time!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Margie's home. She is a wonderful host & I felt as if I was staying with a friend. The MARTA station is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk away & it is only 5 or 6 stops to the downtown area. I would definitely stay with her again if I was going to Atlanta.
Thanks to Margie I will use airbnb again, but it for sure raised the bar!
I used airbnb the first time and got probably spoiled right away. Really enjoyed staying with her and spending time also with her friends, and the lovely Blossom, either out on the porch or out at night.
Her home is nice and cosy comfortable, easy to be found from Marta station. Even though, she arranged a pick up at the first day I arrived and hey… even got lucky to get a ride back up with my heavy luggage. Thanks Margie!
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, no problem at all to walk the streets in the dark, when I returned back in the evenings from my excursions at the city. As a real tourist, wandering around the sights, Margie always had a good point out, where to go or what to just skip. A week later I stayed another night on my way back home and will come back once I pass Atlanta again. It almost felt like home.
Margie was great, she is extremely nice. I went to Atlanta to finish up some training for work and she always made sure I was happy with my stay. The house is amazing, its beautiful. And the neighborhood is safe too. Blossom her dog, is so well mannered! I loved her. Sorry Margie we did not get to chat much, but hopefully I can request my transfer and we can go out for drinks!
