This home has evolved through the spirit of earth, air, fire, and water to incorporates fountains, fabric, and the seas energy of vibration + movement. The active hands of the owner whom is motivated by forward thinking and configuring earth elements into works of art around the home.

Each guest has access to a leisurely private back deck, kitchen, laundry, private bathroom, a wifi printer, free wifi, coffee maker, and friendly lush peaceful porch.

Interaction with Guests

Interaction with guests is moderate. The owner works next door and may be present at times. A very spacious house with nooks and cranny's to get lost in.

The Neighborhood

Cabbagetown is a historic neighborhood located about a mile east of downtown Atlanta. It's located very close to what was the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill. According to Atlanta Historian Cliff Kuhn, the name may be derived from an incident that happened during the depression when a truck hauling cabbage overturned. For the rest of the week the area smelled like boiled cabbage.

Getting around

The easiest route is to get on bus 21 at the Georgia State or King Memorial Station on the blue/green rail line, which goes down Memorial Drive. Exit at Boulevard for the restaurants on Carroll Street, or at Powell Street for more direct access to the neighborhood park. Another known attraction is the Krog Tunnel, which is at the northern edge of the neighborhood, and usually features event advertisements and artist graffiti.

Taking your bike on MARTA is another great option for getting to Cabbagetown. If you exit at the Inman Park Station you’ll have direct access to a bike path on Edgewood Avenue. Take Edgewood to Krog Street and turn left. The ride is only about 10 minutes to the park (see bike route map).

For those who wish to walk, the King Memorial Station is the closest to the neighborhood. It is about a 15 minute walk to the edge of the neighborhood, but a walk you’ll likely want to do in daylight. Turn left/south onto Grant Street after exiting the station and going down the stairs. Turn left again on Memorial Drive and walk past the cemetery to reach the neighborhood. You’ll also walk by other restaurants en route, including Young Augustine’s, The Republic, Tin Lizzy’s, Six Feet Under, Ria’s Bluebird and Mibarrio.

Other Things to Note

Cabbagetown has a festive and welcoming nightlife. There are beautiful waitresses, walking characters, and neighbors that enjoy their porches and love to mix and mingle on the street. You will quickly feel at home in this fabulous neighborhood.

  • Best place to stay in town, hands down. Troy's home and neighborhood will be a pleasant surprise if you had any presumptions about Atlanta, resembling something closer to New Orleans -- humidity included. All misguided humor aside, Troy is an excellent host that will make sure you have a great experience at his home, in the neighborhood, and in Atlanta. Starting from your arrival with a generous welcome packet that includes all the vital information, to ensuring you don't miss a train, Troy makes sure his guests have a great experience. The neighborhood has profound character with a few cafes, bars, pizza parlors, or convenience stores just across the street whether you're a morning person looking to sit out and read or prefer late evenings (email hidden)oy's home is also within a 5-10 minute walk to the MARTA rail station which can get you to any popular destinations in town and is a 5 minute walk to the King Memorial Neighborhood District. Most importantly, Troy's place has the most comfortable bed in Atlanta and is a very restful home that will help you recover from long sightseeing walks or late-evening drinking.

  • This is a little pocket of paradise. You might know Cabbagetown as the delightful neighborhood that has some of the best bars, cafes, parks and restaurants all in walking distance. However, Troy's house is a gorgeous resort in the center of it. Troy is a designer, and it shows in his house. It is relaxing and quiet, with a wonderful living room and amazing (website hidden) of all is Troy who (email hidden). He made us feel at home, showed us around the town and made us feel welcomed at every turn. My wife and I loved our time at Troy's house and are looking forward to our next opportunity to return.

  • I had a terrific experience at this beautiful, historic home in Cabbagetown. The owner (Troy) is a friendly and very likable host and has decorated his home with wonderful pieces of his own artwork. I spent a tremendous amount of time enjoying his back porch, which you can see in the pictures. The house is located close to a market, a cafe, and several restaurants, which was important to me because I was without a car.

    I would definitely stay again!

  • This is a super comfortable room in a great artistic space (email hidden) willing to point you in the right direction without hovering. Designed for privacy with your own back entrance, but welcomed to enjoy the "salon" with eclectic music piped through out, chic design and classy ambiance with casual vibe. I was welcomed with a glass of wine and a list of places to eat for dinner. Loved the pedestrian friendly neighborhood with charming small streets, quaint homes, coffee shop, bakery, restaurants and corner store with surprising beer and wine (email hidden) feel in the midst of Atlanta. Will be back to explore more.
