About Dawn Barrs

Hi, my husband and I share lots of the same hobbies... we scuba dive, fly a small plane, hike, kayak and swim/bike/run... yes, we are enjoying triathlons in our golden years. :)

Additionally, I am a multi-million dollar REALTOR who works in the North Atlanta and Cobb County area,.,. on multiple occasions, it has been ultra-convenient for our guests who are moving here to also let me help them find their perfect metro-area residence!

Dawn Barrs purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Dawn Barrs chose Sandy Springs

This is the home where I raised my kids and it has lots of memories for us all. It has been completely remodeled and expanded... adding lots of windows and skylights, vaulting ceilings and so much more. It's truly charming and unique.

What makes this apartment unique

There are so many things to do in Atlanta and especially on the north side of town. This home is nestled on a quiet street. This apartment, in particular, is packed with intimate quaintness and unexpected nooks and crannies. All of it is laced with beautifully filtered light from many oak trees that populate the back and side yard. It is so much better than a hotel...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your very lovely apartment and for your kindness and scheduling flexibility during my father's illness and passing.

The best experience I could've asked for

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely fantastic and Dawn was always available to help me out if I needed it. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Owner's Response: Stephen was a delight... he stayed at our cottage apartment for about two months while interning here in Atlanta... easiest quietest traveler we could have imagined. And, he left the apartment very clean... always a wonderful thing... he is welcome back anytime.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

As a traveling Radiologic Technologist I have the great privilege of exploring and staying at many places around the country. I have been in some nice and not so nice places before. I must say, hands down this is one of the best if not the best experience I've had. Dawn is completely wonderful and the apartment was wonderful just the same. I had everything I needed and if I needed anything I knew Dawn was only a call away and she was extremely helpful. This is a nice, quiet neighborhood that is close and convenient to everything. I have already recommended this place to many of my friends, family, and co-workers. The next time I am in the Atlanta area for work or play, I definitely plan to return.

One of the best places I've stayed

  • 5 of 5

This is truly one of the best places that I have stayed. The home was set up so nicely and so private. Everything I needed was there for me and if any issues came up Dawn responded right away. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Dawn and will not be our last. Dawn is a wonderful host and readily available when needed. Our first stay was in the ‘English Cottage’ and the second in the ‘Tree House’. Both units are comfortable and beautifully decorated with a wonderful attention to detail including luxurious linens. Located in a quiet neighborhood in East Cobb it is convenient to restaurants, and shopping areas. We look forward to staying with Dawn whenever we travel to the Atlanta area.....Highly recommend.

The English Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The English Cottage is wonderful. The Cottage was just what the pictures showed and even more. The Cottage is seclude so that you feel one is far enough away you are in an oasis, yet close to the main road you could reach any destination you wanted. The owners are wonderful people and very helpful should we require anything. Highly recommend the English Cottage.
