Bed and breakfasts offer a personal touch that might otherwise elude you when staying in a big city – and Atlanta, known for its Southern hospitality, is the perfect destination to select a residence where friendly owners are on hand to make sure you are cared for. Check out some of Culture Trip’s recommendations in Georgia’s state capital, to witness at close hand the restored history of Atlanta’s elegant past.
The University Inn at Emory
Situated in the Druid Hills District and perfectly located for the Emory University or the local hospital, this hotel offers large rooms without losing any of the homely vibe that you crave on the road. The pool area allows you to sit back and lounge out on the deck, and is strikingly clean.
The Peach House
Inman Park is one of the most lively areas in Atlanta, and the Peach House offers the benefits of being in the center of it all while still managing to deliver the solace of a quiet stay. This striking, historic home, built in 1901, draws visitors in with its inviting porch and four charming rooms, all of which are large, bright and beautifully preserved. This experience is more like staying with wonderful friends.
Inman Park Bed & Breakfast
The high ceilings and hardwood floors of this B&B ooze history, perfectly complemented by fine furnishings such as oriental rugs and intriguing antiques. This spot is a great choice for those who also like to go on hikes, as it’s only two blocks from the Freedom Park Trail, which runs from the Inman Park MARTA station to Ponce de Leon and on to Stone Mountain.
Stonehurst Place Bed & Breakfast
This 19th-century mansion-turned-B&B in Midtown is a true beauty. Lovingly restored by its owners, the rooms are dotted with art that gives the place a true sense of grandeur, while the suites – with their four-poster beds, fireplaces and marble bathrooms – are as charming as you’ll find anywhere in the city. The views into the private gardens are delightful.
Sugar Magnolia Bed & Breakfast
Another fine historical building in the Inman District, The Sugar Magnolia B&B is a Victorian home dating from the late 1800s. The three-story turret is a prominent sight in the neighborhood, but the treasures within its walls – the grand staircase, large windows and twinkling crystal – are equally striking, and the service is as friendly as it is private. Relax with a book on the front porch, stroll in the surrounding gardens or relax on the upper deck.
The Social Goat Bed and Breakfast
Unique is a infamously overused term, but when it comes to this bed and breakfast just south of Grant Park – built in 1900 as a working farm and homestead – it’s no exaggeration. Housing as many goats, ducks, chickens and turkeys as it does guests, this comfortable residence with lovingly tended grounds is an ideal option for families with children.
Greenwood Bed and Breakfast
A stay in this historic Virginia-Highland neighborhood will place you just 3mi (5km) northeast of Downtown Atlanta, within walking distance of the charming Ponce City Market and Eastside Beltline Trail. The B&B is a single unit connected to a family home, allowing for a particularly private stay, and guests are treated to much-praised cooked breakfasts each morning.
This B&B in People’s Town was once a Southern Baptist church, meaning it’s quite a sight to behold. Its exterior has all the trappings of Southern design one would expect from a simple place of worship, while inside is awash with modern-American decor. The high ceilings help retain a sense of spirituality as the light floods in, and rooms come with individual decks.
Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast
The owners of this magnificent home in the vibrant Inman District go out of their way to create a fun, comfortable atmosphere for their guests. Interiors are an effortless miss of modern and vintage, while bright communal spaces and eye-catching detail make for a space that’s as intriguing as it is inviting. The gardens are also well worth an explore, and the gentle resident dogs add an extra dose of joy.
