About Jerol Smith

I'm a native Atlantan & I have been very fortunate to see the change and growth of this great city - - its fine restaurants, extraordinary shopping, sporting events and venues, musical scene, movie scene and all of the other beautiful things that make up Atlanta. I am a MOTHER to 850 kids, who are 18 going on 25 (you guessed it, I'm a high school teacher). Teaching is 'heart' work and HARD work. I have worked harder in my career span as an educator, than in any other role of my life! I learn as much from my kids as they do from me . This is the same open mindedness I bring to hosting! I can always learn from people, no matter political view, race, religion or background - - it serves well to challenge my logic - - Come one, come all - - stay with us and we will give you a good sense of what Southern Hospitality is all about.

Jerol Smith purchased this house in 1968

Why Jerol Smith chose Southwestern

As our childhood home, this property is near and dear to our hearts! This is a diverse neighborhood with a real city feel with lots of eccentric and charming people, but it is not a leave-it-to-beaver suburb with houses that match, so if that's what you are looking for this neighborhood is not for you! You will find chain restaurants and mom/pop operations in equal number along the Cascade Rd. corridor. We love the area!

You will see large portraits of the legacy bearers of this home, Jerodene 'Jerry' Smith, and Walt Smith Sr. in the foyer of the front entrance of our home. It is their passion for home decor, landscaping and homemaking that inspires me today.

What makes this house unique


Downtown family-friendly activities, restaurants and dining, and public transport are easy to get to. ATLANTA ZOO, BRAVES STADIUM, GRANT PARK, ATLANTA AIRPORT, GEORGIA AQUARIUM, ATLANTA UNDERGROUND, CENTENNIAL PARK, CNN CENTER are all within 15 miles. Other attractions up to 15 miles away

Situated on quiet residential roads with very little traffic, the Cascade Heights neighborhood and surrounding community has been the neighborhood of choice for many prominent Atlantans over the decades: the late Lieutenant Colonel Charles “ A Train” Dryden, who helped make history as one of the early members of the Tuskegee Airmen, the late Atlanta Mayor Maynard H. Jackson, civil rights icon Joseph E. Lowery, former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Hank Aaron, renowned Atlanta surgeon, the late Hamilton E. Holmes, to name a few. The neighborhood was featured prominently in Ebony magazine, back in the 1980’s (the magazine is on the coffee table in the den)

This is an absolutely beautiful home in the suburbs 😊

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the house lovely , spacious and roomy. Jerol the property manager was kind to me , my mother and grandma during our stay supplying us with everything we needed at no extra charge. Might I add that when you do stay you get a complimentary pitcher of sweet tea in the fridge which i finished within the first hour of being there.💖 The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and the surrounding areas and shops are no less than 5 minutes up the road, perfect location for a peaceful family get away. I enjoyed my first stay in Atlanta , Ga and i will be booking this property again!

Huge Duplex with Great Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home shows pride in ownership. We stayed in the 3-bedroom portion of the duplex with access to the carport, which was great for access to the home. The pieces of furniture in this home is of amazing quality and style. Chandeliers hang from the master bedroom as well as chandelier designed lamps throughout. The bathrooms felt like we were being pampered by the touch of elegance displayed in them. Upgrades in the vintage home are done with attention to detail according to my husband's standards, as a builder. The front and back yards are very well maintained. As others have stated in their reviews, Jerol welcomed us with a pitcher of cool sweet tea and orange juice in the fridge along with a tray of goodies to snack on! Her brother, who shares the duplex, was extremely cordial and did not bother us one bit. Close by are grocery stores, pharmacies, fast foods and other places. You can even take the streets to and from the airport. Can't believe that they share such a great home with others, but I praise God that He directed us there. Next time we are in Atlanta, we will for sure check to see if "The Gathering Place" is available.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Renting this home was the best decision ever. Its cost efficient and we were together all the time. We wouldn't have had that privilege with a hotel. The house was just lovely and so welcoming! The outside area is very relaxing . We stayed in contact with Jean & Jerol and they made sure we had everything we needed it! Loved it.
