This one-bedroom guest house is located on a quiet, dead-end street behind the owners' 1920s home in Ormewood Park. The Wagewood is minutes away from Interstate 20 as well as the hip nightlife and bars of East Atlanta, along with green Grant Park.
The Wagewood is located behind our 1920s bungalow. Please park on the pad to the left of the cottage.
If you're looking for Great Gatsby couture, you'll be disappointed; the Wagewood is kitschy and quaint while also private, spacious, and clean.
The Wagewood includes free, secluded parking; a bedroom with decent closet space, a small couch, and a full-size bed that sleeps two; a bathroom with a generously sized shower; a living room with a desk, large couch on which you can sprawl (or snooze), chair, smart TV with cable and Netflix capabilities, and DVD player; a kitchen with basic cooking equipment, a gas stove, and a full-size refrigerator; a sunny dining area with a table and four chairs; a private laundry area equipped with a washer and dryer; and a large deck with tree-filled views. Not to mention high-speed wireless Internet!
Guests have access to everything in the house, including the coffee, microwave, toaster, cookware, silverware, and myriad kitchen equipment; basic toiletries such as toilet paper and hand soap; laundry supplies; and any other goodies you find.
Interaction with Guests
My husband and I are pretty quiet and keep to ourselves, so even though the Wagewood is on the property where we reside, we won't be all up in your biznass, your biznass. However, if you need anything, with one quick message via the handy AirBnB mobile app, I will appear -- like a ninja! -- across the small slab of pavement that separates our abodes.
Ormewood Park is a quiet, tree-laden neighborhood that is conveniently situated between cool-kid East Atlanta and family-friendly Grant Park. Plus, foodie-centric Decatur is a 15-minute drive away. We bought a house here for a reason: because the east side of ATL is the best!
Atlanta offers an incredible food, music, and literary scene, so you won't be bored at night.
A Marta bus stop is located at the end of our street, although (to be frank) you're gonna need a car to efficiently get around our fair city.
Other Things to Note
Did we mention that the windows let in plenty of natural sunlight? It's important to get enough vitamin D.
ALSO, the closet in the kitchen contains a set of adjustable weights so you can tweak your guns while on vacation!!
"It looks so much better in person!!"
"This is way bigger than I expected."
"The deck feels so peaceful and quiet."
We expect our guests to treat our property with respect and care, but hopefully the expression of common decency goes without saying.
No smoking, please.
Please park on the parking pad to the left of the cottage. That way my husband and I won't get blocked in!
Bobbin and Ryan were the best hosts EVAH! Upon arrival there was a voucher for Wholefoods as well as my favorite tea waiting for us (who does that?!- amazingly generous) which immediately made us feel so welcome. We had some problems with the wifi but Ryan and Bobbin did everything they could to resolve the problem and even gave us a free night to compensate for this 'hiccup'. As for the cottage, it's like a 'home away from home'. It's cozy, comfortable and had everything we needed. We would absolutely stay there again if the need arises and if Bobbin and Ryan would have us again.
The little cottage that Bobbin and Ryan have is such a quaint and cosy place. It really has all of the necessities that a retreat has! The place is located on a dead end street in a surprisingly quiet Atlanta neighborhood. Also, traveling by car from the cottage was very convenient and is accessible from a lot of the major roads. It was such a great experience and I hope to stay with Bobbin again soon!
They were very gracious and friendly. The neighborhood is very cute and very close to a supermarket and various restaurants.
I had an extended stay at the Wagewood and it truly was a home away from home. I had everything I needed to feel relaxed, cozy and content in this secluded space. Also, the extra amenities such as the smart TV, internet, desk, large deck and roomy kitchen make it easy to manage work and leisure time. There is room to spread out in the cottage so you can set up the environment to suit your needs.
When things came up that would make my time in Atlanta even more comfortable, they were immediately addressed by Bobbin and her husband. They went over and above with special surprises and treats that came pretty close to spoiling me. At the same time, you hardly know they live in the home in front because they do not intrude on your privacy. But if you send Bobbin a text message, she is quick to respond to questions or requests. If you run into Bobbin, you can be sure you will have a cordial conversation because she takes a real interest in whatever topic of conversation comes up.
The Wedgewood is a quiet, roomy place that has a lot of charm, as does the whole Ormewood Park neighborhood. It is family oriented with a friendly, safe and pleasant feel.
I know I will return to this peaceful, roomy, and unique guest house.
I work full-time as a Web editor, and write and perform at literary events in my spare time. Other than writing and staying fit, I like to hang out with my family and friends by eating snobby food, going to local music shows, walking the Beltline, and acting silly.
I just want to enjoy my life, spend time with the people who matter, drink bourbon, and write.
My husband Ryan shares the above sentiments, except replace the writing with playing in his band Spines. Also of note: we are obsessed with our two cats.
