Lovely House in a Grand Ole Decatur Neighborhood
Beautifully landscaped this spacious "treehouse" was a delight. The owners were gracious and so very accommodating to our special requests. Our family highly recommends it to anyone interested in experiencing the best of in-town Atlanta/Decatur living.
Thanks so much, your family was a treat to work with and so glad all went well.
Overall we liked the home.
We liked the home and found the areas to be both safe and with an interesting restaurant scene not too far away. The house itself is a well-maintained home elevated where you feel like you’re in the treetops. A soaring screened lanai makes for great evenings out of doors without the hassle of bugs.If you want to sparkling brand new perfect everything...then this might not be the home for your crew...if you want something with texture, charm and interest ...then I would recommend it. For me it’s about “would I go back here again...the answer for 4 of the 5 in our crew would be yes.
Thanks and with the new 4th bedroom maybe that would help.
Wonderful accommodations and location
This house was absolutely perfect in every way. It is nestled in a very quiet neighborhood within 20 minutes of downtown. We had everything we needed to enjoy some wonderful evenings with family and friends while visiting Atlanta. We will definately be renting this home again.
Thanks so much. We are so glad that you came and had a great time. It seems that you enjoyed our house as much as we do...perfect!
Great house and location.
Really enjoyed the family room and great screened lanai. Quite a few steps so if you are limited in mobility this a challenging house. All the necessary comforts of home are available. The area of town was lovely and very close to great restaurants.
So glad you enjoyed the house, your family were great guests. And you are correct it takes a few extra steps for a 3 story "treehouse" so we hope it was worth it. Thanks, Alice & Buck
Beautiful home with all the amenities we needed to have a very enjoyable time.
Loved the seclusion in the woods, with beautiful views of the foliage from the very comfortable patios. Plenty of room for our family of 5.
Thanks so much! It's been our genuine pleasure to share our home with others. We appreciate the kind words.
Great house — wonderful hosts
We stayed at Buck & Alice's house over Christmas, and it was perfect. The house was spacious for our family of five but also cozy and inviting. Buck and Alice are great hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay in Atlanta — even a Christmas tree and a fire in the fireplace! — and were always available for questions. The neighborhood is quiet, pretty and conveniently located (about 15 mins away from downtown, although you pretty much need a car). We highly recommend staying here.
Thanks it was rewarding to have such a nice family for the Holidays.
Located in historic inner-city neighborhood of Druid Hills (famed location shots of "Driving Miss Daisy") within walking /biking to Emory University/CDC and Emory Hospital; convenient to other desirable in-town neighborhoods, e.g. Virginia-Highland, City of Decatur, Midtown Atlanta. Short drive (about 15 minutes) to downtown Atlanta, Zoo Atlanta, High Museum of Art, Fernbank Natural History Museum, sports arenas, shopping, some of the best dining in the Southeast.
