The shared space is an open floor plan with dining table. Simple mid-century furnishings and local art are all around. If you do not like dogs, this is not the place for you. My dogs 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 or Brindle (our recent rescue) announcing your arrival so don't worry about it :)
Relax with coffee or tea in the morning inside or on the front porch The backyard is lovely with a mature Magnolia tree. Winding down on the porch or in the back with a night cap can be really sweet. This is an urban location that feels like an oasis. Whether you need a clean and comfy layover from the airport, a couple of days touring the town, or a furnished spot for several weeks while you consider relocating, I hope you will ...come be our guest!
Always be mindful of the dogs. We keep them separate from the guest area most of the time but occasionally Blossom will come to visit guests. It is difficult to get her back inside if she gets loose.
Please, no smoking anywhere on the property, inside or out. I am extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke.
This is a home that recycles. Please do not put recyclable items in the garbage. :) There is a basket by the garbage for recyclable items.
Otherwise, have a great stay while you are here.
Margie really is a super host! Her place was stylish and welcoming with great furniture, books & games in a guest-only sitting room and kitchen. The bedroom was fresh and the bed extra comfortable. It was a short visit but I'd love to stay again!
Margie was wonderful! Before we arrived, she was extremely easy to communicate with. The space is clean and as described. You do share a bathroom with other guests-but that was not a problem at all. Margie was full of great recommendations of places to visit and things to do in the city. We would definitely stay with Margie again!
Margie & her husband Joe were fantastic hosts as they communicated back and fourth with me which is much appreciated. She left a key for us with a note where to go in case we beat her to the house, but she pulled up right when we arrived. She showed us to our room, Joe offered us a beer, which I gladly took him up on :-). I loved the shower head, best shower with a host so far.
Her place was clean and super close to the airport which was super nice as we had an early morning flight out of Atlanta which saves us a bunch of time. Margie gets 5 stars from me and would totally stay again.
Margie was great! She picked us up from the train, showed us how to get around, and left coffee and snacks for us! The house is nice and clean with a seperate entrance which made it easy for us to come in late. We loved our stay in Atlanta--and Margie's suggestions were a big part of that. She even gave us suggestions for our next stop! The location is not right in the city, but there's a MARTA train pretty close and the walk over is easy. Overall a great stay and a great place, would definitely recommend.
Wir haben uns bei Margie sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Zimmer sind toll und die Betten sehr bequem! Man fühlt sich sehr wohl!
Margie war als Gastgeberin sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit! Wenn wir das nächste Mal in Atlanta sind werden wir auf jedenfall wieder zu ihr kommen!
Margie was an amazing host! She accommodated my ever changing travel plans with patience, and she responded to all of my inquiries quickly. Her home is warm and laid back, and I felt at ease when staying there. The accommodations were very clean and tidy. I highly recommend Margie as a host. You will not be disappointed :-).
My first Airbnb experience was really great. Margie and Joe are very nice. If I will travel Atlanta again，I will definitely choose Margie's place.

I have worked with organic farmers all around Atlanta and the Georgia area so I love supporting local eating. Currently I am a real estate agent focusing on helping owner occupants find a great deal in the foreclosure market here. I also host travelers like yourself in our home.
I am a native Atlantan but I have lived all over: New York City, Indiana, Greece, Nashville, and even Florida so chances are if you are traveling thru the US, I can introduce you to new friends if you like. Worked in the entertainment (film and music) industry, and the restaurant business before starting my veggie delivery service. I have always planned to one day run an urban bed and breakfast and I have been keeping great notes of what makes for great stays and not-so-great stays from my own travels. Help me out! Come see how my hostess skills are doing! I will always be up for a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine or cup of tea in the evening to help you plan your own itinerary, if you like. One thing I enjoy when I travel is a "little bit" of help from my host... and a lot of time on my own. We can visit if you are up for it ... or not. ;)
