The retreat is central to everything, and a there's a quant kids park directly across the street. The room was accurately described, modest in decor, and spacious. Everything was clean and snacks/food were available. We didn't get to do yoga, but maybe next time.
Lovely, quiet, clean accommodations. Too bad I got in at 3am and was somewhat confused by the code on the lock. But that's on me! Hostess was welcoming the next morning when I met her.
We chose The Self Discovery Center to stay in during our trip to Atlanta for Dragon*Con. We were greeted when we arrived and Vasudev helped us carry in our luggage and gave us a tour of the property. We felt very welcomed and comfortable. The property is right across the street from a beautiful park in a peaceful neighborhood with not a lot of through traffic. There are several areas with cool shopping and restaurants within walking distance (including Little Five Points) as long as many bus stops for taking the Marta around town. The breakfast was continental style, but there was fresh fruit, different choices for milk, cereal, and other offerings and we were allowed to use the kitchen to cook vegetarian meals. We would love to stay here again!
I needed a true break after a rather manic business trip to Atlanta. Flights couldn't be changed, so I had an extra day (two nights) in town. The serenity and welcoming spirit of Deedee and the Discovery Center was exactly what I needed and the only thing that kept me leaving the week feeling positive and whole. Isn't life always finding a way to make things perfect... Thank you Deedee!
Deedee's White Queen Room was exactly what I expected and needed. It was a nice, quiet alternative to a hotel downtown, and only a few minutes away.
I especially enjoyed the trees outside the window each morning.
Calm, pleasant and convenient with a bus service just across the Olmstead linear park that is outside the door.
I love it here! My room was spacious and light. The house is in a gorgeous neighborhood and part of a vibrant spiritual community. It's also easy to get to around to neighborhood shops and restaurants, the Carter Center, and to downtown. I extended my stay and I'll come back next time I'm in Atlanta.
