I stayed at Greenwood for the first time in Dec. 2016 and immediately booked a return visit for a family gathering scheduled for May of 2017. It was wonderful to have a large self-contained apartment rather than a hotel room. We have family living in Virginia Highland and loved being able to walk to their homes. We were able to park our rental car right in front of the house and loved the fact that the B&B is so close to some of the top tourist sights we visited. Greenwood is a real gem.
This is a great place with beautiful rooms in a lovely house on a quiet residential street near the Beltline, Ponce City Market, Piedmont Park and the Botanical Gardens. David is great and accommodating. There is nothing negative to say. Since we have family near this B and B, we will definitely want to come back over and over again. I just hope my fantastic review doesn't make it so popular that I can't get a reservation there again.
Spur of the moment trip to visit the folks, but wanted to experience my home town from a different perspective. My son and I stayed 4 days and I didn't want to leave. My favorite part was the garden and my son loved Bob the duck. Best breakfast I've ever had too! We'll be back!!
Very casual B&B in a beautiful neighborhood filled with large restored homes. Eleanor is laid back and very easy to talk to. A few blocks from the Marta station, so it is easy to get here from the airport. All of Inman Park's restaurants are within easy, and SAFE, walking distance--Krog Street Market http://www.krogstreetmarket.com/, three blocks to the west, is a wonderful place to get a local beer, food and dessert, even closer is The Albert, and a few more blocks will bring you to 10 more restaurants. If you can't find something you want to eat in Inman Park you just don't like to eat. Also close by is the Beltline http://beltline.org/, a great walking path that can lead you to Ponce City Market (about a 1.5 mile walk from the B&B--there is NO parking at the market so walking is your best bet), where you can eat, shop, and just look around at the old Sears store and warehouse http://www.poncecitymarket.com/ Bob the duck is an interesting addition. He is an outdoor duck so don't worry about having him underfoot. You can visit with him if you wish, or just watch him out the back door. Another place to visit within walking distance is the Carter Presidential Library, if that is you are into Presidential Libraries, or President Carter (it's well done). Parking is easy in front of the B&B if you get there by car. The Allman Brothers did stay here at one time, but Duane didn't die there--he died in California.
The bedroom and bathroom are nice size. Housekeeping by host David is spot on. Breakfast made to order. The living room and tv are comfortable for relaxing. Walk to Belt Line, Prince Market and more.
Greenwood B and B is the perfect setting to visit Atlanta. It's set in quiet neighborhood with easy access to downtown and to the beltway path and conveniently close to a market place for unique restaurant and niche retail choices. The apartment offers comfortable bedroom , living room and kitchen. We enjoyed breakfasts provided by the owner before we set out for our daytrips to visit Emory college, southern historic homes in Roswell and the museums in Atlanta for art and civil rights. We also attended an author talk at the Carter library closeby. Perfect location~ Attractive comfortable clean place to be a guest.
Why stay at a boring hotel when you have this option nestled in the heart of Atlanta? My wife and I just had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Virginia Highland Bed and Breakfast! Adele is a perfect host. She met us when we arrived and saw to our every comfort throughout our entire stay. We were provided keys to come and go as we please. She even let us charge our electric car overnight! The B&B is super clean, well-decorated and full of character with an eclectic mix of styles and antiques that simply works. Love the porch and grounds too. Its location in Virginia Highlands is great combination of being close to the Piedmont Park, Botanical Garden, Ponce City Market, Plaza Theater and Virginia Highland shops and restaurants while still being quiet for a great night's sleep. Georgia Tech and Emory are a short drive away. Breakfast was delicious too! We live in the burbs of Atlanta so this was a quasi-staycation twist from our cookie cutter suburbs. Looking forward to a repeat visit in the near future! Highly recommend!
I live about a mile away from this place, actually in Downtown Atlanta. Took my my girlfriend there for a Valentines overnight stay, wonderful experience. Sometimes you don't have to travel that far to get away from the hassles of life!
My wife and I lived in Savannah for ten years before moving back to the Atlanta area and have stayed at numerous B&B's with historic value. Twelve Oaks is hands down THE best B&B we have stayed at. Every room has a unique charm and it's own perk. The details are amazing, we checked in early and enjoyed exploring the house. The staff is very courtious and knowledgeable. Travis was the caretaker during our visit, we enjoyed his hospitality and conversations. The food has the quality of fine dining (not to mention the wine and cheese platter in the evenings). We enjoyed taking the short walk to the square but were always in a hurry to get back to the house and our room. We will definitely be back. Trust me, there is no need to drive to Savannah to enjoy an historic B&B, the best one is just an hour from Atlanta. -Tim and Melani
Kathleen is a superb host. Her breakfasts rival the best that culinary schools have to offer. Sugar Magnolia is a delightful example of Victorian charm. The Inman neighborhood is a wonderful place for long walks. The nearby (10 minute stroll) Krog market has a fascinating variety of food and drink.
My husband and I spent a weekend at Twelve Oaks, and we absolutely loved it! Cleanliness is extremely important to me, and our room/bathroom/bed was spotless! The bed was SO comfortable. We stayed in Suite Home Alabama which was WAY more spacious than we imagined. The home is beautifully renovated for being so historic. Check in and check out was simple. The staff was kind, the food was delicious, and we are recommending to friends!
This B&B is like a studio apartment in an ideal location in mid-town Atlanta. Just blocks away from Highland Ave where allot of great restaurants are located including the wonderful Folk Art. Also just 2 miles from the Fox Theater and another mile or 2 to Andrew Young International Blvd down town, Also close to the Krog Market Or just a block away the Ponce De Leon Market. David makes a nice breakfast as well and is a gracious host. .B&B has a kitchen and a nice large closet.
We have stayed at Greenwood Bed & Breakfast twice within the past month. David has been a perfect host, and most accommodating to our needs. First stay was for 15 days over the winter holidays, then a return for 3 days mid-January. We plan to be recurring guests as we know David will meet all our needs. Walkability to area restaurants and shops great.
My husband and I stayed in Sugar Magnolia for a couple days before we flew out of ATL to go on our honeymoon. The house was gorgeous and in the perfect location! This was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast and we had a wonderful time. Kathryn was lovely and both of the breakfasts (waffles and quiche!) we had were fantastic. We hope to come back soon!
I was very lucky to get a last minute reservation for the furniture show...little did I know that it was so cute and Kathryn, the actual innkeeper was going to take such great care of me...I hate to even tell anyone about it for fear that I won't get a room when I need it, but my guess is that she took a liking to me so I won't have any trouble. To make it even better, her breakfasts can't be eat..yummy!
My wife and I stayed 2 nights in December of 2016. We absolutely loved the Twelve Oaks! The location was beautiful, the rooms were gorgeous, and the staff was very friendly! I highly recommend the Twelve Oaks!
This bed and breakfast is without a doubt one of the best places to stay in Atlanta. You truly have your own apartment with a private entrance. It is close to so many unique places in Atlanta such a shopping, parks and wonderful restaurants. The in keeper is very kind and makes a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend for a short get away or a long relaxing stay.
Thank you so much John for your amazing hospitality during our stay last week. The rooms are so delightfully decorated and we loved being able to tour the house. It was wonderful being able to meet other guests during Sipping n Nibblin hour. We stayed for a surprise trip for my husbands birthday and I chose the Salvatore Brothers Study. This was perfect! We loved hearing your stories about restoring the house with your wife Nicole and the history of the house. The added bonus was hearing about the movies that had been filmed there too. We love this place so much we have already booked our next stay. Our goal is to stay in every room! Thank you so much for preserving the beauty and history of this elegant home. Bev and Dan
My wife and I visited Atlanta the week of October 17th. Through Trip Advisor (and Bed and Breakfast.com), I came across this B&B that was right outside of Atlanta in the surrounding neighborhood of Iman Park. Debi, the innkeeper, greeted us at the door with a welcoming smile. She showed us around the house, the common (guest) areas, and finally our room. This B&B is a beautiful historic (early 1900’s) house a gorgeous front porch and shaded rear patio. It has a security gate surrounding the property. You are given a key to the side security gate, the front door, and your room during your stay. I reserved the Aviary room which has a bathroom across the hall. The queen bed was very comfortable, the room and bedding clean, the A/C works well keeping the room cool on hot days, and the shower has high water pressure and is big enough to accommodate two people. Kathryn was very helpful with advice and tips on local information and attractions in the area. There is a Krog’s Market a couple blocks away that has about ten different small restaurants, a couple bars, and a place to purchase alcohol. Kathryn also makes some really good hot breakfasts, which includes fresh fruit, waffles, and a homemade quiche (that is just simply awesome!). She even gave my wife copies of the breakfast recipes when my wife noticed how much I enjoyed eating the meals. All in all, it was a great experience. Our room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and well worth the price. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful (all the houses decked out for Halloween) and quiet. Kathryn did an awesome job as the Manager/Chef. We will definitely be coming back.
Descubre la fascinante historia de Atlanta
Atlanta es la capital del estado de Georgia, en los Estados Unidos, y también la ciudad más poblada del mismo. Fundada en el año 1837 en la intersección de dos líneas de ferrocarril, a día de hoy es una de las ciudades más visitadas de los Estados Unidos, recibiendo más de 35 millones de visitantes cada año. La industria turística de esta ciudad es muy diversa y hay numerosas atracciones tanto al aire libre como cubiertas. Para disfrutar de todas ellas, nada mejor que alojarse en un económico bed and breakfast en Atlanta, para estar cerca del centro de la ciudad, o en una casa rural en Atlanta, situada más a las afueras, lo que te dará la oportunidad de contemplar en tus trayectos el espectacular paisaje urbano de la ciudad.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Atlanta
Al contrario de lo que ocurre con otras ciudades del Sur de los Estados Unidos, Atlanta decidió en su día no mantener el antiguo estilo arquitectónico sureño, por lo que en la actualidad se puede contemplar aquí un panorama urbano con grandes edificios de estilo moderno y postmoderno.
Especialidades culinarias en Atlanta
Como ocurre en muchas otras ciudades capitales, la gastronomía está formada más por “tendencias” y por la cocina propia de otros países o regiones que por platos típicos locales. Aún así, en esta ciudad se pueden degustar algunos de los platos más tradicionales de la cocina del Sur de los Estados Unidos, como el pollo frito, los guisantes secos, el puré de patatas, el pan de maíz, lo tomates verdes fritos o el julepe de menta.
Eventos destacados en Atlanta
En Atlanta se celebran eventos y festivales durante todo el año, especialmente durante la primavera y el otoño. Destacan especialmente el Festival Dogwood de Atlanta, un festival de artes y artesanía que se celebra cada mes de abril en el parque Piedmont, y el Festival de Cine de Atlanta, que se celebra también durante este mes. En el mes de septiembre, comenzando con la fiesta del Día del Trabajo en septiembre, se celebran una serie de eventos entre los que se encuentran festivales de música al aire libre.
El clima en Atlanta
El clima en Atlanta es subtropical húmedo, con estaciones muy bien definidas: veranos calurosos y húmedos (con una temperatura mínima de 22 °C durante el mes de julio) e inviernos suaves (con mínimas por encima de 0 °C en el mes de enero, el mes más frío). Con un aire urbano que podría recordar al de Houston, a pesar de tener un paisaje muy distinto al que podría esperarse, la hospitalidad sureña de esta ciudad, formada por una diversa mezcla de culturas, se hará notar desde el primer instante, y te sentirás bien recibido en todo momento.
