About this listing
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.
Guests can hang out in the living room and catch up on Breaking Bad on Netflix, watch the news on cable, read a book on the sofa in the sunlight, or get some work done at the desk.
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 business. However, if you need anything, with one quick message via the handy AirBnB mobile app, I will appear and accommodate your request with efficiency.
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.
"It looks so much better in person!!"
"This is way bigger than I expected."
"The deck feels so peaceful and quiet."
Please park on the parking pad to the left of the cottage and pull all the way forward. That way my husband and I won't get blocked in.
If you have a guest or bring an additional car, please park it in front of our house on one of the parking pads. There isn't enough room for two cars to park to the left of the cottage without blocking in our cars.
A third guest potentially could sleep on this comfortable couch, which also is perfect for sprawling out and watching tv and stuff.
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 partake in the simple yet fulfilling joys that life has to offer, such as: spending time with quality friends as well as my dear family, watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix, eating ice cream, reading, and maintaining my yard. As of late I've become a total plant freak, and you'll probably find me contorted in seemingly uncomfortable positions over a bale of pine straw.
My husband Ryan shares the above sentiments, except replace the writing with playing in his band Spines and the simple yet fulfilling joys with playing soccer on his iPhone.
Also of note: we adore our cat-children!
