Lovely Carriage Home in Atlanta

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this Carriage House for four months over the summer and really enjoyed my stay! This house was perfect for my needs, not too big not too small. Everything worked properly, and the washer and dryer were a great addition to have. The upstairs room was great for reading in the afternoon, and the multiple windows helped create a breeze throughout the home. The property on which it sits is gorgeous and has an earthy feel to it, with a large garden in the backyard surrounding the Carriage Home. There is a nice sized porch on the front of the Carriage House with multiple seating options, and I often found myself sitting out there listening to the gentle hum of crickets as the sun went down for the night. There is plenty of privacy as well, though the homeowner is available if anything should be needed. I was greeted with a bottle of wine and various items in the fridge to make me feel at home on arrival. It was a very nice touch. I would gladly stay here again!

Enchanted garden cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect stay for a quiet retreat. Set in a beautiful garden, the cottage is charming. I had a very enjoyable stay, and the owner very graciously met a few of my pressing needs. The front porch was a cozy place for breakfast and later a glass of wine. I hope to be back the next time I'm in the area.

A Sweet Peace of Home

  • 5 of 5

What a exceptionally warm, sweet, & thought-of-everything cottage!

First, Tina is absolutely wonderful and deeply attentive to any needs you may have.

Second, coming home to the serenity that is this house makes all the difference from the activity that is Atlanta. From the morning coffee porch to the quietude of the loft space upstairs, I was immediately made to feel relaxed and welcomed.

And finally, I would recommend Tina and her home to anyone looking for an oasis in the city!

Exceeded by Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Tina, is a lovely host. The house is quant, well appointed, secluded and very quite. Upon check-in Tina made sure I had coffee, creamer, and wine...the essentials. I was there for 8 days and took Uber into work everyday. Convenient to popular shopping options as well as cool, quirky local places. I highly recommend this property.

Perfect Atlanta Carriage House!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great...convenient to pretty much everything. Tina was super sweet and provided some extra treats for our stay. She was very welcoming and easy to work with! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone headed to Atlanta. Hopefully we'll be back sooner than later.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Tina's Cottage for about 4 months in the fall of 2016. It was the perfect little bungalow. Tina takes great care in making her property clean and comfortable. If I needed an extra blanket or a blow up mattress in the loft it was there before I got back to the cottage. She welcomed my stay w/ a nice card and a bottle of wine and asked if she could anything to make my stay more comfortable. She has a housekeeper available if you feel you need it, and the washer/dryer was a much needed added bonus. I recommend Tina's Cottage to any traveler for a short or lengthy stay. It is close to all the Atlanta hot spots and just far enough away to be out of the buzz in a very quiet family friendly neighborhood. Scoop it up while you can. Thanks again Tina!

What makes this cottage unique

Surrounded by beautiful garden featured on the Into the Wylde Decatur garden tour. Very private, quiet retreat with sounds from fountains and abounding nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tina’s carriage house is the reason one opts to stay in an independent house rather than a hotel. It is tucked away on a quiet, serene, family street which has virtually no traffic, in a great neighborhood walkable to many parks, or a mere 10-15 minutes to Ponce City Market. I was told the house was renovated and turned into a guest house only a couple of years ago, so all the appliances are new. Everything you need is there - washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave (better than mine at home!), slimline vacuum, and more. The kitchen was particularly perfect for me, as someone who likes to cook on weekends or when I’m not working late nights; it's outfitted with plenty of dishes, cookware, utensils, and gadgets. The shower feels new and clean. The quarters are “cozy” and perfect for one person, or perhaps a couple. There is an upstair “loft”, great for storing extra suitcases, or a child to sleep. When the temperature allows, I left the (new) windows open at night and fell asleep to crickets chirping. The house itself is nestled off a path behind Tina's main house, surrounded by greenery, so privacy is not a concern. Tina is the perfect host, as hands-on or off as you like, checking in from time to time and always accessible. I will definitely stay in the cottage when I’m in Atlanta again.
