About Dawn Hammond
I am a mother of two amazing kids, I am an RN and work from home. I have lived in the city of Decatur for 15 years and I absolutely love it. I am so excited about hosting and sharing this great city with others. I enjoy gardening, reading, yoga, traveling, camping and love being a Mom. When I was younger I was a nurse in the military and had the opportunity to live in Italy. While there I traveled all over Europe and stayed in many B and B's. Those memories are some that I will treasure forever. I hope I can be as good of a host as I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I look forward to meeting you.
Dawn Hammond purchased this Cottage in 2012

Quiet and Cozy
The cottage was very well appointed: fully stocked fridge and snack basket. The bed was comfortable with lots of pillows. Everything was immaculate. Dawn was very easy to work with and checked in with me via email to make sure all was well. Highly recommend.
Great place for a family!
We loved the Decatur Cottage! The cottage was small but efficient. It did not lack anything my family of four needed. My kids loved the nook. The bed was comfortable, linens were all luxurious, and the hosts accommodating. Dawn was so sweet and stocked the cottage with lots of goodies and necessities. The location is 15 mins to Atlanta, 15 mins to Stone Mountian, and close to lots of shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended.
Decatur is my new favorite city!
Best VRBO we have stayed in!
We stay in quite a few VRBOs on our vacations and this was by far the most hospitable! Dawn went above and beyond with so many kind extras and the cabin is so wonderfully done! We had a great time in the sweet cabin! We have a two year old and a four year old and it was perfect for our family of four! We made breakfast each morning and the kids were able to run around in the grassy area and play on the awesome playset! We wanted to be near Stone Mountain and downtown Atlanta it was an easy drive to both places ... we also loved eating in downtown Decatur our favorite was the brick store pub thanks for a fun place to stay Dawn and family!!!
Excellent spot in the city
We spent the weekend in the cottage while in Decatur for our son's wedding. It was perfect for us. The location was very tranquil and out of the bustle. The cottage itself had everything we needed for our stay. Furnishings were very nice and the snacks, drinks and other items left for us by the owner were a nice surprise. The hosts were wonderful and if we ever need a place in Decatur we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Perfect for a couple!
The perfect restful three days!
This is a great place, quiet, very safe area and close to the downtown area of Decatur. Dawn is a great hostess. I will surely come back.
