Peaceful 1-BR Apartment Within Decatur City

This well-appointed, charming 1-BR apartment features a very quiet bedroom with a queen size bed, premium 400-threadcount linens, a separate sitting / living room with a fold-out couch, a full kitchen with dining for four, and a full bathroom.

Located in one of Decatur's best neighborhoods (Winnona Park), it is 1/4 mile from Agnes Scott College and a 15-minute walk from downtown Decatur Square. Downtown Atlanta is about 15-20 minutes by car, and access to public transport is easy too: a bus leaves literally 100 feat from the property and takes 2 minutes (2 stops) to the downtown Decatur MARTA train station.

The apartment is in a separate structure from the main house, atop a 2-car garage in the back of a large lot. It also has a large deck with gas grill for BBQ and outdoor seating for four, in midst trees and lots of green. Very quiet, very privat and suitable for singles, romantic getaways, traveling with children (a well-stocked library has over 100 books, as well as dozens of kids titles), or long-term rentals. The full kitchen has a full gas stove and oven, large fridge, coffee maker (com,mentally Starbucks coffee and organic teas) and all utensils, plates, silver- and glassware for four people.

                                                              Lovely over garage apartment with a great yard. Everything was clean and great amenities.

                                                              We never met our host as we were on the go for the time we stayed. But we didn't want for anything. The apartment was easy to find in a lovely spot truly. When we come back to visit our daughter we will try to stay here again definitely! Thank you for welcoming us to your place.

                                                              I regret that I was unable to personally meet and greet you but I was traveling myself.

                                                              I'm pleased that everything went smoothly and that you enjoyed your stay. And, thanks for being a great and considerate guest! I look forward to welcoming you back anytime.

                                                              My daughter and I came in for a school event in Atlanta and did not want to stay at a hotel. We had a quiet, relaxing couple of days and was able to bring our small dog.

                                                              Cozy even when it was cold outside!

                                                              ...but more than any other quality...tho we enjoyed the apartment which had all the necessities PLUS an electric heater that doubled as a fake fireplace...was the saranade of singing birds in the morning due to all the open space behind the house.

                                                              Great Location!!

                                                              We really enjoyed our stay in this adorable apartment while in Decatur!! It's located in a great historic neighborhood & sidewalks for walking. It was nice to have a full size kitchen to cook in and not have to eat out for every meal while in town for a week!

                                                              We'd definitely stay again, if ever in the area again.

                                                              Thanks for all your hospitality,

                                                              All you need

                                                              Cute little very clean, very quiet apartment. Queen bed was super comfortable. Location was good while visiting Agnes Scott College and very convenient to downtown Decatur. Had a great stay!! Thanks.
