Our large and serene home is a short three block walk to Dancing Goats Coffee, restaurants and all that downtown Decatur has to offer. All our guests have said the room, our home and our street create a feeling of being at a private retreat...
The private guest room and bath is on the main floor of our 3,000 square foot home. The main floor guest room and bathroom, the dining room, living room and eat in kitchen. You have exclusive use of the downstairs bathroom adjacent to the bedroom, which has a shower, a bathtub and a large mirror. The guest room windows face North giving the best quality of light all day. You look out onto a lovely covered porch, hanging flower planters, a darling table and chairs perfectly situated for morning coffee or tea while viewing the lush gardens that are directly across the street. There is also a porch swing and 2 rocking chairs and a ceiling fan on the main part of the front porch. Guests have enjoyed watching the beautiful sky through the trees at dusk after long days out and about. And if you want more porch time we've got a screened in porch with a French farm table in the back of the house, too. The room has a large closet with extra pillows, blankets, towels, hangers and a robe. The double bed is extremely comfy and the midcentury pieces and artwork create a serene and modern feeling.
My 9 year old son and I have our bedrooms and our movie room upstairs. The overall feeling of our home is airy and comfortable with lots of artwork I have collected over the 30 years I lived in San Francisco.
I work out of my detached studio in the back yard. We use the back door so you have even more privacy. Our home and the guest room are very quiet and peaceful. Guests have all said it is like visiting a retreat!
Please feel free to use the entire main level. You are welcome to use the internet to stream movies and shows in the privacy of your space. If you would like to get around town by bike you are free to use my Public cruiser which is perfect for a visit to the square or the Beltline!
I am happy to help you navigate Decatur and the surrounding areas and give suggestions wherever possible. I know you may want to just enjoy your down time and privacy on your stay and I am fine with that. I do a lot of my work upstairs unless I am in the kitchen getting meals together for my son and I...We tend to use the back door to come and go too. So please feel free to use the downstairs as you wish! I am also free to chat and be social at times, too.
We have a small calico cat named Jem. She is an indoor cat and very friendly and sweet so we just have to make sure she doesn't slip out the front or back door.
You can easily park on the street directly in front of the house or you can park in front of the garage in the back of the house if you'd like. Our street is very safe.
Quiet time after 10pm.
Please refrain from using heavy perfume, cologne or heavily scented personal care products as some guests are sensitive to scent.
