Incredible aesthetics. I wasn't sure what it would be like in a residential area by the road in a glass treehouse... But it seems as if the hosts built this house to make you feel as if you're completely in a forest. The panels that weren't clear glass are positioned so from the inside you don't see the road or even the house next door (unless you're really trying). I stayed here the night of my engagement and it was absolutely perfect. I recommend it for anyone who's creative and needs inspiration and couples looking for a "getaway" without leaving the city.
Not only was the house the most architecturally amazing place to stay, but MC (host) was extremely accommodating. Stayed for two days and felt so relaxed and at home for the entire stay. We would absolutely recommend the glass house as a place to stay!
This was such an amazing place! We loved staying here and the cool vibe the place has! M.C. made this place and our experience beyond perfect! She went above and beyond to make our stay special. We WILL be back again!!!
We had such a wonderful, relaxing time and our hostess was very thorough making sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
What a great example of falling in love with the possibility of a property...and doing so again in person once you arrive in person.
My business partner (an architect) and I were in town for business for a single night with very little time to just 'relax' / 'explore', but M.C.'s property captivated us from the first time we ran across it. We opted to drive 45 minutes out of our way (in ATL traffic) to stay at M.C.'s home...and are thrilled we did.
So many ways to describe the property, but what comes to mind first / foremost is that it is compelling and captivating for those who are seeking something truly modernist with layers of the unexpected once they arrive. The home never sells itself as being 'cozy' (the way many homes try to focus) - this is something entirely different. Yet, it still manages to be refreshing and relaxing in a myriad of ways.
Despite its location, you really feel as if tucked away in the woods. And despite its endless glass walls, you really feel as if you are in a very private setting.
And while we use the property just for a very quick one-night rest, we'd love to consider it for hosting an event, too. Be an ideal location for a creative work event or make-an-impact dinner party.
Finally, M.C. was a terrific host, staying in touch with us several days in advance all the way thru our visit. Appreciate her willingness to open up this striking property...and to make it feel like home for those coming in from afar.
The house is friggin' awesome. It iss beautiful, inspiring, and made more so by the fact that M.C. and Carlos designed and built the house themselves. Probably not ideal for a family retreat as the furnishing is pretty spartan, but we loved the place. The house is a work of art, and should be regarded as such. Definitely would rent again for my next trip to Atlanta.
