I woke every morning to the view of goats playing and turkeys and hens feeding! I couldn't believe I was in downtown Atlanta. Everything was wonderful. The neighborhood was nice and quiet...a perfect get away from Chicago. Kristy was very helpful in directing me around town and answering questions. I would definitely return! Choose the Social Goat over a crowded, chain hotel when visiting Atlanta.
5 on November 11, 2014
We stayed at the Social Goat for two nights after an all day road trip from NJ for a wedding. Kristy could not have been kinder or more welcoming. Our 10 year old daughter loved the animals and breakfast was delicious. We can't wait to stay here again!
4.6 on November 06, 2014
We would definitely recommend The Social Goat to those looking for a special place to stay in Atlanta! Kristy and Paul were very friendly and the house with all of its antiques was gorgeous. We loved waking up to the kitties every morning and being greeted by the goats, chickens and turkeys every time we pulled in to the driveway. And the fresh eggs from their chickens were a special treat in the mornings.
5 on October 12, 2014
My daughter and I spent the night at this wonderful B&B after attending a wedding nearby. It was just perfect! Kristy made us feel right at home when we arrived. The accommodations were just beautiful and the grounds had a nice, country feeling. We loved interacting with all the animals, especially the sweet cats who would wonder into our room. The breakfast the next morning was delicious! Farm-fresh eggs made into an omelette and filled with cheese, spinach, ham and onions along with a crepe topped with a fruit compote. We will definitely visit the Social Goat again!

My husband & I recently stayed in the Master Suite at the Social Goat. It was a little slice of heaven in the city. We especially loved the goats, turkeys & chickens. They have a lovely outdoor area that includes a koi pond, fireplace and porch. The house was beautifully decorated and our room was immaculate. I would highly recommend a visit.
5 on September 12, 2014
My wife, grown daughter and I stayed at the Social Goat for 2 nights this past week. My daughter (25) had not stayed at a B&B before so we wanted to give it a try for her. So we were looking for something that would accommodate 3 adults while we visited some sites in Atlanta. The Social Goat worked great for us. We rented the Cottage, which had two full-sized BR, full kitchen, etc. Its just around the corner from the main house. The house was very comfortable, quiet, and very clean. Kristy served tasty breakfasts both days that we enjoyed. The entire property was beautiful, and located just down the street from Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, and the Cyclorama. We definitely recommend it.
5 on September 03, 2014
Who knew this little gem was so close to Atlanta? I spend the most relaxing weekend of my life here reconnecting with my husband. The goats, chickens, turkeys and cats made me feel like I had run away to the country. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are spectacular, and I already want to go back!
5 on September 03, 2014
We stayed at the Social Goat for 2 nights while visiting Atlanta. One word, AMAZING! Kristy and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. We did not have a rental car and planned on taking the Marta bus around town, Kristy drove us to the bus stop on the first night. We felt very safe and comfortable. We stayed in the Carriage House which was beautiful. The goats, turkeys and chickens were adorable. The B&B is conveniently located near two bus stops and in walking distance to Grant Park & Zoo Atlanta. Breakfast was delicious. Overall a great stay. I would definitely recommend the Social Goat B&B to anyone!
5 on September 01, 2014
The breakfast hour was the best. The food was excellent. Meeting and listening to others adventures was fascinating! The grounds and animals were wonderful. The rooster cottage was immaculate.
5 on August 28, 2014
My all-too-brief stay at the Social Goat was a pure pleasure. Kristy made me feel very welcome in her delightful home, and the goats, chickens, turkeys and cats were an added highlight. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious both mornings and the back porch is a wonderful place to sit on a warm summer evening with a cool drink. I couldn't believe all of this was so close to the heart of the city in a quiet neighbourhood. I would highly recommend The Social Goat and would love to return if I'm ever in Atlanta.
4.4 on August 13, 2014
The Social goat was a really good Place to stay during our weekend in Atlanta. Lovely room!
4.8 on August 10, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay there. Beside a superb daily breakfast, Kristy provided us with helpful tipps regarding dining, public transportation or sightseeing (Grant Park, the Zoo and the Oakland Cemetery are nearby). We loved this beautiful place with its southern down-to-earth atmosphere and hosts, its tastefully furnished home and of course the little farm with its neat and social animals. C und J ;-)
4.4 on July 30, 2014
Stay here if you (a) love beautifully renovated and furnished stately old homes, (b) want an unfussy, comfortable experience, and/or (3) want to hang out with very social and quirky farm animals. Kristy was a terrific host: she showed us around the whole place, introduced us to the animals, prepared a delicious breakfast, and gave us great recommendations for restaurants based on our taste. She also generously allowed us a late checkout so we could linger in her beautiful home a bit more. I'd definitely stay again and have already recommended it to friends.
5 on July 21, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at The Social Goat. We stayed in the Rooster home rather than at the main facility. Everything was very nice. We felt safe the entire visit. No problems or questions about the neighborhood. It's very quiet but so much of what you could want to visit is close by. The food and service is great. I recommend this place and I would stay here again.
5 on July 20, 2014
I attended a conference in Atlanta and decided that I did not want to stay in the thick of things. Since I have goats of my own, the name of the place really grabbed me. I am so glad I stayed here. The place is beautiful - the food amazing - and it is close to everything. I chose to take a cab to the conference center each day but you could take public transportation. Getting up each morning to the sound of a turkey gobbling was wonderful! Kristy and Paul are delightful hosts. You cannot go wrong staying here - I highly recommend it.
5 on July 16, 2014
I took my daughter to stay and it was wonderful. The animals were a nice touch for someone with kids. The place was beautifully decorated with authentic antiques that were perfectly restored or irresistibly rustic. Best B&B experience. My wife and I make it a point to stay in B&B's whenever and wherever we travel which is often and this one takes the cake. Highly recommended to any and all but save a room for me because we will be back. Christopher Stephens
5 on July 13, 2014
Loved this place! Amazing neighborhood and beautiful setting with great location with very close proximity to I-20, beautiful park and several great local restaurants. Inn keeper Kristy was wonderful. She and her husband were so friendly and interesting to talk to about how the Social Goat came to be. Will definitely return to stay again. Just stayed in three bed and breakfast on vacation and the Social Goat was the best by far.
4.4 on July 08, 2014
Nice break from hustle and bustle. Like being on a farm but still close to resteraunts. Very clean B&B. Food was very good too. Enjoyed sitting out by the fountain. Very relaxing.
4.2 on June 30, 2014
We were guests for nearly a week at The Social Goat, occupying the third floor. This suite was awesome because it was very large - perfect for our family of 3 to spread out and relax. We loved watching the farm animals and petting the goats and all four cats. Breakfast was delicious and Kristy provided this early in the morning since we had to get to Georgia Tech by 9 am each day. She helped us pick out some great restaurants nearby as well, such as Six Feet Under and Mary Mac's Tea Room. The zoo is located nearby in Grant Park, and other attractions such as the botanical gardens and art museum were also close. We had an awesome time!
5 on June 29, 2014
I'd like to go back to Atlanta just to stay here again! I was just passing through, tired after a conference, and my one-night stay there totally rejuvenated me. Kristy was so friendly and the house so beautiful and welcoming that I felt as though I was visiting friends. And the animals made it perfect. (I think one of the turkeys had a crush on me.) Also a great location, nice neighborhood downtown, close to things to do.
5 on June 28, 2014
Fabulous place to stay for those desiring to be in the Grant Park/Atlanta Zoo area. Kristi was very helpful answering questions regarding my 80yo mothers' potential stay. By the way, Mom loved the Carriage House and the grounds! Great alternative to traditional hotel!!
4.8 on June 23, 2014
This was our first experience staying at any B&B and it was wonderful! The master suite was beautiful and I loved the interaction with all the animals. We will definitely stay here again.

It was a nice getaway and Kristy was very helpful with information about the surrounding area.

This was our second stay at the Social Goat and we weren't disappointed. Kristy is a great innkeeper and we enjoyed being there.
5 on June 12, 2014
We had a wonderful experience in a top B&B It is everything we had hoped for. Spotless room, with private deck, the best host (Tim) and great breakfast. Also the house is very well located, in a quiet street and to the Flagler college and the pedestrian shopping street. We also spend a few hours at the beach and Tim sent us to the best beach, he provided us (most helpful as he is) with beachchairs and towels. We loved every minute of our stay. Do not look anywhere else just make a reservation and you will not regret it. Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple
5 on June 10, 2014
we got there earlier than check in time. we told them that we will get there early, she (the lady who runs the bnb) let us in early, and the room (we were staying) happen to be empty at the time. we stayed in 3rd floor, it was just 2of us but the room easily sleep 4. very spacious. and private bathroom, very clean. breakfast itself is good reason to stay here. amazing!!!
4.2 on June 05, 2014
We stayed one night in the Carriage House as we were having our small, informal wedding in the garden. It was a perfect space to get ready beforehand, host our small wedding party for drinks, and to relax afterwards. Its a cute apt with kitchen and deck. Lots of antique furniture give it a cosy, classy feel. Nice bathroom: the shower was large with great water pressure. The garden areas, fountain and, of course, the animal paddock were delightful and we had fun petting the adorable, cheeky goats and mingling with the turkeys and chickens. Cats and chickens roam the grounds freely which we loved. Kristy is an excellent host. She was incredibly welcoming and accommodating and made herself available on the day to check on how we were doing. I'd recommend the Social Goat to anyone wanting a peaceful, pretty, friendly B&B in Atlanta. And if you love animals, you will adore this place.
5 on June 04, 2014
We recently stayed at this B&B for the second time, and enjoyed both stays immensely. Kristy and Paul are great hosts, and their family of farm animals is a lot of fun! The rooms are clean and cozy--and the hosts have thought of everything you could need. For example, in the nightstand table, there is an extension cord to better be able to plug in your cell phone. During our most recent visit, we stayed in the carriage house. The carriage house was a very relaxing space. It was very enjoyable to have a small kitchen to use and a living room to lounge in. On top of all of those great things about the B&B, it's in a great location of Atlanta. The Grant Park neighborhood is adorable, with bistros, coffee shops, and farmers' markets very nearby. We can't wait to visit again!!
5 on June 04, 2014
Very nice place, fun for kids, well done.
5 on June 02, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Rooster Cottage at The Social Goat. It was convenient to everything and decorated so pretty. The breakfast the next morning was absolutely delicious and Kristy and Paul were very welcoming. The backyard is like something you would see in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine and the animals are a fun addition. We would definitely stay here again!
5 on May 30, 2014
Beautiful and unique property. Kristy is a wonderful hostess, and the breakfast was phenomenal. Will definitely be back if we find ourselves in the area.
5 on May 27, 2014
Although we were in town for less than 24 hours, The Social Goat was the best place we could have picked for our stay! Without the hustle and bustle of a hotel, we felt right at home immediately. From the coffee and cake to the delicious breakfast, we we re never lacking. We stayed in the 3rd floor suite which is perfect for a couple or small family. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully for a longer visit!
4.4 on May 03, 2014
I stayed at the social goat a few weeks ago and it was great the breakfast was fantastic and so was the room we stayed in. Kristy was also super nice giving us a map, driving us to the train station, and telling us about local restaurants. I would definitely stay there again!
5 on April 29, 2014
My wife and I had a great time at The Social Goat Bed and Breakfast. We stayed at The Rooster Cottage around the corner. We had a whole house to ourselves. I highly recommend staying here if you should find yourself in Atlanta.
4.8 on April 24, 2014
My husband and I loved our stay at The Social Goat. Kristy is so friendly. We loved talking to her. We loved the food and our room was beautifully done. The best part was the animals. I had to resist taking one of the goats home with me. What a great get away in the middle of the city. I can't recommend this place enough. We will definitely go back. --Hilary
4.4 on April 23, 2014
The Social Goat is, by far, the best B&B I've ever stayed in and is better than most four-star hotels. My husband and I stayed in The Rooster Cottage around the corner from the main house for four nights in mid-April. The house was lovely and very well-decorated. The bathroom is a bit snug and the house smelled musty and mildewy (it IS an older home), but those were our only complaints. The beds and furniture were very comfortable and the neighborhood was peaceful. Plus, you could cook your own meals in the kitchen and walk around the corner to the main house for breakfast. We loved the location - super close to everywhere we wanted to go: downtown, Beltline, Cabbagetown, Little Five Points and Grant Park itself. We would highly recommend it to anyone!
4.6 on April 21, 2014
Grant Park location perfect for zoo goers. Breakfast fantastic. Lovely hosts and one of a kind room furnishings. Plan to return.
5 on April 15, 2014
Loved the experience...I need a kitty fix and Monkey and Batman more than satisfied my need to pet a cat. The animals on the "farm" were delightful to see. My room was comfortable, well appointed and very clean. Christie was a wonderful hostess and her breakfasts delicious. I had a great stay and would do it again when in Atlanta. Thank you Christie!
5 on April 03, 2014
I am a student who traveled alone. I still remember the day I arrived at Atlanta. It was pouring and Kristy picked me up at the bus stop weearing an elegant bohemian dress. She made me felt like coming home. The menagerie is awesome. I even ventured in and got chewed by three black goats. It was my first experience with goats and it was fun. On the last night of my stay, Paul and Kristy drove me all the way to a local southern restaurant, we had a ball. I really miss them. If I were to come back to Altanta again, I would still choose social goat.
4.0 on April 02, 2014
This Bed and Breakfast was very clean and comfortable, with furnishings of craftsmanship quality. Breakfast was excellent, and the outside ambiance was both unusual and interesting, with goats, turkeys, and chickens (fenced) making themselves available for your viewing. All in all, the Social Goat is highly recommended as a charming stay.
5 on March 25, 2014
We have visitd the Social Goat several times. Each stay is like visiting friends. Kristy, the proprietor, is gracious and friendly...and she makes a fantastic breakfast! The rooms are beautifully decorated and the entire property full of charm. The beds are comfortable, food delicious and company good. We don't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Atlanta.
3.4 on March 24, 2014
We stayed two nights at the Social Goat and enjoyed our stay very much. We had the third floor suite and it was relaxing, clean and comfortable and we felt we had everything we needed. The location was great for the Aquarium and Coca Cola and Zoo. We also had fun eating at local neighborhood restaurants that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. The owner was really helpful with advice and information regarding the area and cooked a generous breakfast for us. While we enjoyed ourselves very much, this might not be a place for everyone as you must be relaxed around animals especially house cats. Very fun for us.
4.6 on March 23, 2014
Very comfortable and clean accommodations. Great breakfast with fresh ingredients. Kids loved the farm animals.
4.8 on March 19, 2014
Overall, our expectations were exceeded at The Social Goat. Our only hiccup was a delay in confirming our reservation, but this was quickly addressed, and everything worked out fine. We enjoyed the privacy offered by staying in the Carriage House, and the breakfasts were amazing! The goats, turkeys, chickens and cats all seemed happy and healthy. The property is well decorated and is enjoyable. We found the Grant Park neighborhood to be a nice place to visit. The park itself provided a nice place to stroll, and it was nice to have the zoo there. We found plenty of dinning choices within a mile of the B&B. We would certainly stay there again.
4.4 on March 17, 2014
Stayed in the Rooster Cottage for 3 nights and was very pleased with every aspect of our stay. The cottage was roomy, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. It was perfect for our family with two small children. We walked to the zoo and enjoyed the space outside while my husband was attending a conference. The location was perfect. Breakfast was delicious and Kristy was very attentive to our needs. When my kids threw a door open in the cottage resulting in a hole in the wall from the doorknob, Kristy refused to let us pay for it or repair it - she was very kind. The kitchen had everything we needed and having a laundry was great. The main house was beautiful. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would stay here again over anywhere else in Atlanta.
4.8 on March 12, 2014
Thank you for taking care of them!
5 on March 10, 2014
We wanted a unique anniversary experience in Atlanta and this B&B didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Carriage House and the place had a living room, kitchen, full bathroom and balcony. Although it was pretty cold and rainy on our stay, we had a great time. The bed was comfy and big. Breakfast was amazing! What more could you ask for???
4.4 on February 12, 2014
We stayed in the Cottage. Very clean and cozy. We will stay with the Social Goat again!
5 on February 03, 2014
We got an upgrade from Kristy and really enjoyed talking to the animals and other guests. We felt like we were in the country, but we could get to in-town events in a few minutes. Being right ned to Grant Park was also a boon. Great French toast and fruit for breakfast and such comfortable beds for quiet nights both made us feel so at home. We can't wait to go back! And we'll never again stay anywhere else.
5 on January 29, 2014
The Social Goat B&B was one of the best we have stayed at across the country. The combination of a beautiful home and a small farmyard makes for a relaxing and enjoyable time. Not to mention the hospitality of the owners. We will definitely stay here again.
4.4 on January 27, 2014
Fist of all, if you must, starve yourself so that you can feast on breakfast. It alone was worth every penny of our stay. A French influenced meal made from farm fresh eggs and the freshest ingredients, was served each morning along with coffee worth drinking. We stayed in the "cottage", hoping for more privacy than the usual B&B offered. That is what we got. The full kitchen was a God-send, as was the full sized washer and dryer. The bedrooms were exceptionally comfortable and having a place to be able to "call home" for a week was wonderful. Additionally, the free wi-fi kept us current with our workload. Be sure to pick up soaps, shampoos, and any dish/laundry washing supplies you need around the corner at CVS. Its easier than packing them. The area of Grant Park was inviting, the people friendly, and Innkeeper extraordinaire, Kristy (the lady of the house), was exceptionally helpful with her knowledge of the city and surrounding area. She tipped us off to some fantastic gems tucked inside of neighborhoods that were each unique and bustling with great eateries and things to see and do. We will be back.
3.2 on January 24, 2014
I did not like the cats being on the island counter as that is where our food was prepared. We had to chase cat out of our bed as well.
4.8 on January 23, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at The Social Goat. The animals were adorable and made our visit more memorable.
4.6 on January 12, 2014
Our holiday stay was excellent. Kristy is so accommodating. Always enjoy staying at The Goat!
5 on January 06, 2014
A truly delightful B&B in a great area of Atlanta. i'm actually from Atlanta but enjoyed being on a different side of town for a few nights. The Innkeeper is very friendly and helpful, and has really sweet goats. Awesome place to stay!
5 on December 29, 2013
We loved the social goat bed and breakfast! We traveled with my two children who are ages 3 and 1 1/2 and stayed in the carriage house apt. The accommodations were so comfortable and the kids got a kick out of the little farm and even helped to feed the baby goats. Kristi was the most gracious hostess and her breakfasts were out of this world. It was my favorite part of our trip and we can not wait to return.
5 on December 09, 2013
We stayed 2 nights for my husband's 40th, and had a wonderful time. Our room was beautiful and very comfy. The animals were adorable, and breakfast was amazing. Also, it is in a great location, tucked into a cute neighborhood so close to Grant Park. Perfect location for sightseeing. We will definitely be going back.

The pecan pancakes were incredible!
3.8 on November 25, 2013
Great location for seeing Zoo Atlanta and visiting in that part of town. Just be forewarned there is more than one cat residing in this B&B. Didn't eat there, but the dining score was required. I'm sure it is delicious.
4.6 on November 20, 2013
This bed and breakfast is very cute. The rooms are large and well-kept. Very clean. The house is in a good neighborhood and easy to get to the zoo, too. Breakfast was delicious! We had pancakes with all kinds of homemade syrup, honey and fresh eggs from the chicken coop outside. It was very nice!
4.8 on November 17, 2013
We love the Social Goat and always enjoy our stay! Kristy & Paul are wonderful! The baby goats are just adorable!
4.6 on November 14, 2013
We stayed at the Social Goat B&B for our first anniversary. I highly recommend it. We stayed in a room with a garden tub and it was fantastic. It was expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. I was in love with the property and the animals. We had a great time, and I highly recommend it to others.
3.2 on November 09, 2013
Not your typical b&b! A barnyard of critters, and a beautiful b&b in a wonderful, convenient location - easy access to other parts of Atlanta!
5 on November 07, 2013
I loved staying here. I was worried about the steps to the upstairs, but the stairs are really close together, which made it easy. It's quiet, tranquility in the middle of a big city. the food is wonderful. Very relaxing. I will definitely be back!
3.8 on November 04, 2013
Rooster Cottage was an excellent peaceful base for exploring the local area on foot. Enjoyed the typically southern breakfast and seeing the goats in the yard outside the main house. A real haven in the middle of a city !
4.4 on November 04, 2013
We stayed in the carriage house. Very comfortable, peaceful and relaxing.

Stayed 4 nights and were well pleased. Great location, and accommodations. Really enjoyed the "social goats" and other animals. Who would ever think this inn existed right in Atlanta. Look forward to staying again when we visit our daughter...
4.8 on October 26, 2013
I had a delightful time at this farm in the city. The accommodations were luxurious and clean. A quiet spot in the city set back from the road. Animals are a good barometer for kindness, and they adore Christy. It was fun to see her with the kid goats. When I showed interest, I was invited to help bottle feed them. Christy even volunteered to drive me to MARTA to catch the train to the airport, for which I was truly appreciative. She took a personal interest in all the guests and introduced us to each other. A great hostess. This B&B is a good value, in a great location. I highly recommend The Social Goat!
4.8 on October 25, 2013
We recently spent 2 nights at the Social Goat while visiting our daughter. Our room was beautiful and the animals were fun...including Batman the tiny kitten. Kristy was extremely helpful about giving information about the area. We highly recommend the Social Goat.
5 on October 23, 2013
We had such a wonderful time at The Social Goat. First of all Kristy and Paul were so great, so nice and so welcoming. 2nd.. I was blown away with the wonderful managerie. Not only the goats, but all the other fabulous critters. We loved our rooms, everything was so clean and charming. Oh, the breakfast was terrific too! Our only regret is that our stay was too short. If we are ever near Atlanta, we will def. return.
4.2 on October 09, 2013
Getting to meet and hang out with the farm animals was the highlight for us, though the house itself was gorgeously redone and furnished. Would highly recommend it to others.
4.4 on October 08, 2013
Everything about the Social Goat was pleasing, and we plan to stay there again. Thanks to Kristy for her welcoming manner, her style and bringing this concept to its high state.
5 on October 08, 2013
Great place to stay...this is my second stay, and I was not disappointed...it's like a little farm in the middle of Atlanta!
5 on October 04, 2013
I was in town for Dragon Con and didn't want to deal with noisy partiers in the host hotels. I was able to retreat from the crazy convention at night and get a good hearty breakfast that even my amazing-cook wife would have been impressed with, and believe me, Dragon Con requires a lot of energy and there's not always time for lunch. Plus Kristy showed me how to park for free at a nearby MARTA to easily get to and from Peachtree Center with no hassle! She definitely saved me tons in parking, plus the value for how nice the room was - well worth it!
4.6 on October 01, 2013
Down in Atlanta for the Falcons/Patriots football game and looking for an experience that was not a chain hotel, The Social Goat B&B far exceeded any hotel experience we've ever had. This was the first time we decided to stay at a B&B and we were not disappointed. Kristy and Paul were EXTREMELY friendly and went above and beyond to make us feel 'at home'. The entire property was beautiful from the interior of the B&B to the barn area, outdoor seating and fireplace. Breakfast was delicious each morning with a range of foods over the course of our weekend. The 3rd floor suite was both spacious and clean, more than enough room for two and could easily accommodate a family of four. The animals on the property were friendly and we were even given the opportunity to bottle feed baby goats. For a couple of 'city folk' this was an unforgettable experience, all of the adorable animals and Kristy & Paul made it SO hard to leave when it was time for us to head home. The Social Goad B&B is conveniently located near a number of delicious restaurants, the Atlanta Zoo/Cyclorama and a short drive to Midtown. Thanks to Kristy's advice we were given some great recommendations of restaurants and attractions, all of which exceeded out expectations. We would HIGHLY recommend the Social Goat B&B to anyone staying in town for any occasion, just beware.. roosters do not sleep in on the weekends!

This bed and breakfast is a haven of relaxation and simple luxury in Atlanta. They happened to have gotten 3 2-week old goats the day we arrived and it was so fun to play with, feed and enjoy the farmlife in the evening and morning. We loved this place and definitely plan to recommend it to friends and hope to go back again someday!
4.8 on September 21, 2013
Beautiful house! The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. Great location, close to everything. Breakfasts were delicious. Kristy and Paul were wonderful and the animals were fun and entertaining!
5 on September 20, 2013
This is a truly special place - after two nonstop weeks on the road around the USA (we're Scottish) the Social Goat provided much needed rest and relaxation at the end of our trip. The animals are so sweet and friendly, we loved them! Great base to explore Atlanta, and thanks to Kristy for excellent dining recommendations nearby. Also for her amazing fresh breakfasts. She was kind enough to offer us a bigger room than we'd booked because it was empty - luxury for a very reasonable price. Would recommend to anyone.
5 on September 20, 2013
We are huge fans of the Social Goat and love to stay there! Kristy is such a great host and we always love seeing the chickens, turkeys, and goats. We typically stay in the Carriage House which is always clean, well decorated with a super comfortable bed. 5 stars!!

This B&B is so charming and sweet. Kristy is this amazingly talented person--decorating, landscape design, and a wonderful host--just WOW. We loved every minute of our stay and we will definitely return!!! Mike and Jackie White
4.6 on September 15, 2013
Had a great time here for 2 nights as it is quiet in a residential street. Our room (the yellow room) had a big balcony with a day bed on it overlooking the big back garden and we could see the goats, turkeys and hens from it. There was an outdoor fireplace area where we sat one night next to a fishpond,that was really pretty and relaxing. Best of all there was a new kitten at the house, and 3 other cats, one of them being especially friendly and in our room a couple of times to see us. Breakfast was ham and eggs one day, eggs and waffles the next, with fresh fruit, very good, and there was coffee to be had whenever we wanted it. The property is a short distance from the Zoo and with easy access to the city, so I felt it was a good choice for the start of our vacation from England.

My husband, daughter, son-in-law, and myself recently stayed at the Rooster Cottage for four nights. We were in Atlanta for our son's wedding. The house was absolutely darling and plenty adequate for the four of us. It had everything we needed. The kitchen was so easy to cook in and the set-up was simple. Kristy was just amazing. We went to the main house for breakfast two of the four mornings we were there. The breakfast was delicious with Kristy's home grown eggs. We would have eaten there all four mornings if we hadn't had prior engagements. The house and dining room we ate in was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you, Kristy and Paul. We would recommend your bed and breakfast and the Rooster Cottage to anyone. The Rooster Cottage especially for a family. The Missouri Family

Great stay - it was just way too short! Love the proximity to Turner Field, too - walking distance.

My husband and I stayed for three nights. It was so relaxing. A stellar weekend overall.

Charming Bed and Breakfast. Great location, great food. Highly recommended!
4.6 on August 26, 2013
The Cottage is the perfect place for those who need a little more room than just a room. The full kitchen allows you eat in, saving a great deal during an extended stay. I highly recommend it and plan to stay next time I'm in Atlanta.
5 on August 21, 2013
The husband and I had a great time here. It's hard to believe how peaceful it is right in the middle of Atlanta! The room and bathroom were gorgeous and I have some serious shower envy. Also, I couldn't believe how close we were to literally all of the restaurants. We had some fantastic tapas only about five minutes away. We plan on returning next time we're in town to see family. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants something much, much nicer than a cookie cutter hotel experience.

This was a wonderful surprise close to home. Great service and delicious breakfast. Restful and restorative and can't wait to go back someday. I have already recommended it to friends and family members.

We had a wonderful time at the Social Goat; our hosts were very relaxed and accommodating and we loved the opportunity to interact the the goats, chickens and turkeys. Breakfast was also lovely. We will likely return on our next trip to Atlanta!

We loved our time at the Social Goat. Lovely private space at the little house down the street. Perfect location for an early morning run right out our door to breakfast with the most fun and unique jams and jellies. We won't soon forget meeting new friends of both the human and four-legged kind. Very special. Highly recommended.

My sister and I recently stayed 3 nights in the lovely blue room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Social Goat. The house is great with beautiful interesting decor and the animals are too much fun. We were very comfortable throughout our stay. Kristy is an EXCEPTIONAL host and her breakfasts are absolutely delicious and filling. I have never stayed in a B&B like this one. It truly felt like a home away from home. It is in walking distance of the Zoo, a number of good restaurants, and MARTA bus stops. We were able to easily get where we wanted to go. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. We will definitley be back.
5 on August 01, 2013
This was my first experience with a B & B. I loved it. It was fun getting up and having a cup of coffee with farm animals meandering around. The food was exceptional. The eggs came from the chicken on the property. The menu was rich with the local flavor of Atlanta. The owner was friendly and was very helpful with local lore and suggestions on the best sights to see. She provided many local brochures. I would stay here anytime I'm Atlanta.
4.6 on July 30, 2013
Great get-a-way after a concert! Wonderful accommodations and breakfast. I highly recommend! Kristy is a total delight!
4.4 on July 28, 2013
This B&B is fantastic, with a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, and close enough to walk to Zoo Atlanta/Grant's Park and several great restaurants. Kristy is an excellent host/innkeeper and always ready to help make your stay as good as it can be. I'd highly recommend a stay here to anyone who not only may be an animal lover, but to anyone who is looking for a wonderfully quirky, fun, and laid back experience. We stayed in the Yellow Room, and found it and its four-poster bet to be very comfortable and welcoming.
3.4 on July 27, 2013
We recently stayed at the Social Goat in Atlanta and it was lovely. I enjoyed petting the turkeys at night while roosting and visiting with the goats, chickens, roosters each morning after breakfast. We loved the cats too. Kristy makes a hearty breakfast and the home itself is gorgeous. Our room was comfortable and felt like home away from home. It is a bit of a hike if you plan on doing alot downtown activities. You can take public but it takes some time. You may want a vehicle. This is the place for animal lovers and people who like walking. Just a lovely get away.
4.6 on July 27, 2013
Kristy gave us a warm welcome in the States The house is amazing, cozy and super clean... The animals are so cute... I enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Social Goat. Thanks for having us. Mariona and Ariane from Belgium

More like a way to help service their mortgage rather than what you'd expect from a true bed and breakfast. If you don't mind the economy size dial soap next to the tub and toilet cleaner next to the toilet then this is the place for you. The room is the highlight of this establishment.
5 on July 10, 2013
We had a great time at the Social Goat. The location was great- much more peaceful than staying in down town but close enough to the bus line and town that taking the marta or driving into down town was a breeze (10 minutes, tops). The Social Goat is within walking distance (10-15 minutes leisurely walk) of the zoo and some food places as well as a Sunday farmer's market. We stayed in the Carriage House, it was adorable! It was very convenient to have our own little apartment for the weekend. Kristy made some creative and scrumptious breakfasts- definitely learned a thing or two that we'll be trying at home!
5 on July 09, 2013
Lovely, comfortable and relaxing. Great food, welcoming atmosphere. Adorable goats! I'm looking for any excuse to come back and stay. Will recommend to others that are in the Atlanta area. Thank you! Margie Woodrich
4.4 on July 07, 2013
This is in Atlanta, in historic Grant Park neighborhood yet has the feel of a gentry farm house. The staff were friendly, responsive and accommodating but more important, they got the service right. The house has been very well (restored?) maintained and there are many interesting furnishings. They do keep the animals outdoors (as any good farm should). Overall, a very pleasant stay and I hope to visit again.
4.6 on July 06, 2013
The breakfast was amazing. The animals were entertaining. The rooms were beautiful and roomy. The location was close to all the major tourist locations downtown. Our family fully enjoyed our visit. We will return!
5 on June 29, 2013
Kristy is a wonderful hostess and excellent chef! Be prepared to be well fed. The rooms are comfortable, classy and clean. The goats, chickens and turkeys are a hoot to visit. We truly enjoyed our visit of Atlanta and the location of The Social Goat is outstanding if you are interested in history and the zoo.

The Social Goat was the perfect fit for our stay. The cottage was comfortable, clean and convenient. Kristy was an excellent host and most accommodating. She is also an excellent cook. We will definitely be staying there again.

The Social Goat is a lovely, quirky, out of the ordinary place to stay in Atlanta. Minutes from downtown and the airport, the main house is beautiful and comfortable. We all enjoyed visiting with the goats, turkeys, chickens and cats found in and around the barnyard. Kristy prepares a wonderful full breakfast, served at a communal dining table. Grant Park and the Zoo are within walking distance.
4.4 on June 14, 2013
We had a very nice stay in The Cottage, the little house one street over, but still a part of the Social Goat. We got to enjoy the breakfast and animals at the big house, as well as have a very private place of our own. I highly recommend it.

A lovely bed and breaksfast. Kristy was very kind and helpful. She made us feel right at home. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay again the next time we're in Atlanta.

Refreshing and spacious areas to enjoy

I recently stayed at The Social Goat and would recommend it to anyone. The location is convenient to many Atlanta attractions, the Inn is beautiful and fully restored. My daughter and I say on the porch in the evening and enjoyed the quiet and sounds of water in the pond. The breakfast was delicious. Everything we hoped for.
5 on June 06, 2013
We enjoyed every aspect of our 2 nights at the Social Goat. A bonus is that this property ended up being less than a mile from family we were visiting. Everything at the Social Goat was done in a beautiful but comfortable way. Breakfast was delicious, the rooms were very clean with lovely soft bedding, and the grounds were also lovely with the animals and several nice seating areas including a fountain and outdoor fireplace. Kristy was so friendly and welcoming, like coming to stay with a friend...........thanks for everything! We'll absolutely be back.

My husband and I enjoyed The Social Goat so much that we booked a return visit with our kids. We loved everything about our experience and we highly recommend The Social Goat to anyone who is looking for something other than the run-of-the-mill hotel experience. Great food, service, accommodations and area attractions!

Great Stay! My wife and I stopped here on our honeymoon and it was great ! Very cool Bed and Breakfast
4.4 on May 21, 2013
My wife and I recently stayed in the Carriage House room with our infant, and were met with nothing but kindness and courtesy by both the proprietor and the other guests. When Kristy found out that it was our anniversary, she even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine, and helped us find restaurants nearby that were suitable for my Gluten-free wife. Breakfast was a good time both mornings, and the food was wonderful. The owner's mother even prepared it one morning and she was a real sweetheart - and good cook! The house itself is full of beautiful old furniture and the Carriage House room, though of recent construction, had much of the same older charm due to the inclusion of rehabilitated old trim and antique furniture. It was a great experience to see the friendly goats; the turkeys were beautiful strutting around (and trying to knock each other off the fence in the morning). In all, we had a great time, and we'll definitely consider The Social Goat again if we ever stay in Atlanta again!
5 on May 11, 2013
Great Stay. Everything was perfect. Will stay again.

Perfect example of what a bed and breakfast should be.
5 on May 01, 2013
My husband and I stayed at the Social Goat this past weekend in the Third Floor Suite. The room was very spacious and clean. Kristy (the owner) was away for the weekend so her sister and mother were our hosts for the stay. Super nice and loved the southern hospitality. We asked for some dining recommendations near the B&B and Julie recommended Six Feet Under which was only a mile from the house and a great hangout! Breakfast at the house was great and they served fresh eggs from their hens. They had a nice porch that we relaxed on at night. The house is in a rural neighborhood, but only took 15 minutes to get to downtown Atlanta. Would highly recommend staying here and if we are in Atlanta again we definitely know where to stay. Thanks for a great weekend!

After spending time stuck in Final Four traffic on our way into Atlanta from a relaxing visit to Tybee Island, we had doubts about our decision to vacation in this busy metropolitan area. However, the minute we drove up the driveway to this lovely Victorian, we knew we had made the right choice on lodging! It immediatley felt like home and it is truly a calm oasis in the middle of Atlanta. Kristy was very friendly and so helpful with all our questions about the area, and she prepared the most delicious breakfasts! We stayed in the carriage house which is behind and separated from the house, and overlooks the lovely yard and small barn. The bed was very comfortable and the living area of our suite was spacious and tastefully decorated. The little balcony off the kitchennette/dining area overlooked the patio with a large fountain and outdoor fireplace, and was a perfect place to enjoy some late afternoon wine & cheese. The owners have done an amazing job in enlarging/restoring the home and cleverly incorporating some of the original materials in the new construction. It was a real pleasure to stay here!
4.6 on April 17, 2013
Not knowing Atlanta well, I wasn't sure what to expect. The SG was the perfect location for us! Minutes to the zoo and Marta station and about 10 from great food & shopping at Little 5 Points and Virginia Highlands. Kristy was extremely helpful with directions and the breakfasts were really tasty. The goats were so sweet, the roosters & chickens were funny and turkeys up close are quite possibly the most unattractive animals on the planet. The room was great and the bed (in the yellow room) was the best night's sleep I've had in a long time...once we closed the door on a very loud snorer down the hall. We plan on coming back to ATL and when we do, we'll be booking a room at our new favorite B&B! Thanks for everything!

Drove into Atlanta for a concert, but Sherman The Goat and his barnyard gang definitely gave the musicians a run for their money when it came to entertainment value! Kristy and Paul were there to greet us for our early arrival request and took us right in to visit with all of the charming creatures who are lucky enough to call this little farm their home. Our group consisted of gals between the ages of 17 and 60 years young and we all were enamored with the picturesque setting and the hands-on experience with the goats, turkeys, chickens, and roosters. The Carriage House was perfect in every way, with an unobstructed view to the animals. Kristy's delicious artichoke and sausage quiche and fruit crisp with goat cheese made for a delectable breakfast, and when she learned a member of our group was a vegetarian, she offered farm fresh eggs as a substitute. Very accommodating! Our only disappointment was that we had not planned a longer visit. We will definitely return when we can take more time to explore the area and just hang out with all of the farm friends we made on this little adventure. Truly an unexpected pleasure!
5 on April 09, 2013
Our stay at the Social Goat completely met our expectations! The Carriage House was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The animals were a delight, even the Turkeys! Kristy is an exceptional cook and hostess and made us feel so welcome! She is the kind of person that makes you think you have known her your entire life!! We would go again!!!
5 on March 25, 2013
We had my daughters wedding at the Social Goat last weekend and I can't say enough good things about it. Kristy the owner went above and beyond to make the wedding perfect and everyone that stayed there feel comfortable. If you are ever needing a place to stay while in Atlanta I highly recommend staying here! Oh, Kristy makes a great breakfast as well.:)
5 on March 24, 2013
We enjoyed a terrific mid-march stay at the social goat. Kristy was a huge help, showing us the bus stop, MARTA station and giving great tips on things to see and places to eat. It was a nice break from the city to get to enjoy the goats, turkeys and chickens. The fresh eggs each morning were fantastic. Great stay!
4.6 on March 20, 2013
The accommodations were perfect for a girls (4 of us) getaway weekend. The location is great, and the house is lovely. We enjoyed sitting outside on the porch, visiting with Kristy and enjoying our wine and snacks. The third floor room had plenty of space for us.

This is a beautiful house with gorgeous, period-appropriate furnishings and comfortable, quiet, private rooms. There are cute outdoor seating areas with a fireplace, water feature and a great view of the goats, chickens and turkeys on the small farm in the back yard. The host has excellent, reliable suggestions for off-the-beaten path things to do in Atlanta, and she makes a mean breakfast using eggs from the farm. The location in Grant Park is ideal -- away from the traffic of the downtown, but close enough to any of the attractions in the area. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Atlanta.

We were able to see and do most everything we set out to do. We met a lot of friendly people. The breakfast was really delicious and filling. The environment was relaxing and very inviting.

We booked a room at the Social Goat for my mom for Christmas night when it wasn't convenient for her to stay at our house due to unforeseen circumstances. It is a lovely bed and breakfast! Beautiful house with adorable critters...loved to see the turkeys, the goats, the kitties, a bunny, etc. My mom felt right at home. Everything is clean and decorated beautifully. Kristy was so friendly and helpful! My mom wants to stay there again!

I stayed at the Social Goat for a girls' weekend. We stayed upstairs on the 3rd floor, which was wonderful because we could all 3 stay in the same room. It was completely affordable - much more so than the hotels downtown - and we could easily drive anywhere we wanted to go. There are a few great restaurants we went to in the neighborhood. The service was wonderful, the couple who runs the B&B is so nice and the homemade breakfasts were to die for! Total southern comfort. The house is absolutely charming, and the goats are so adorable. I would highly recommend The Social Goat, particularly for couples who are looking for a quieter place to stay and a great retreat, right in the middle of Atlanta. Would definitely stay again!
4.6 on January 27, 2013
Our family and some friends stayed at the Social Goat for four nights while in Atlanta for a family wedding. It was the most wonderful and relaxing way to share the holidays and the special event. Kristy and Paul were kind, helpful (with directions and recommendations) and put out a delicious breakfast each morning. Beautiful outdoor space too. I want go back in the spring and sit by the outdoor fireplace!

Kristy and Paul are wonderful honest people that work hard. Their bed and breakfast is a true testimony for their passion. Our stay was fun and very comfy.

Delightful B&B not too distant from downtown and all attractions. Carriage House room provided more privacy and had more than ample room with a seating/TV area and small kitchenette. Well worth the value. Strongly recommended.

We stayed two nights at the Social Goat and had a great stay. The house is beautiful and Kristy made us feel right at home. Breakfast both days was fantastic!

This is one of the best B&Bs I have ever stayed at. We arrived later than usual, but the proprietors were more than willing to wait up for us. The house was lovely. We stayed in the Yellow room. The bed was comfortable, the sheets were warm, and it had plenty of space for luggage and electronic charging. One of the house cats even stopped by to sleep with us. It was too cold to utilize the sleeping porch, but it looked awesome. Breakfast was wonderful and filling. Afterwards, we enjoyed petting the goats and turkeys. I don't often go to Atlanta, but I would be willing to make a special trip to stay here again.

I was in Atlanta for business and choose The Social Goat for its location to Downtown. We where within walking distance to local dining in the Grant Park area. Our room was outstanding clean and private. Breakfast was prepared by Kristy , Quiche on Friday and French Toast on Saturday. The presentation was personal and I appreciated the home cooked attention to detail. The is the best deal in Atlanta in my opinion.

Very great stay. I wish I had been on vacation. Kristy was very nice and accommodating, she seemed to appear whenever you needed her (parking etc.) but also gave me space and privacy.

In Atlanta for a one night adventure and the location was nearly perfect. Paul and Kristy seemed to be doing what must be done to maintain a property with such particular demands. The charm defies description and the professionalism is keen. We spent the "day-after" enjoying the special treats of the old Atlanta city history due primarily to Kristy's suggestions concerning what was nearby. A Great Treat! We will return

The Social Goat is a wonderful retreat in the heart of Atlanta near Grant Park. We stayed in the carriage room above the garage for 2 nights. The room is very spacious and beautifully decorated. Kristy cooks a wonderful breakfast and was so helpful to us when we were planning our days in the area. The little barnyard area with it"s adorable goats, that love taking rides in a wheel barrel and friendly turkeys, was a delightful addition to our stay Thanks Kristy and Paul, for creating a delightful getaway in the heart of a big city.

Our stay at the Social Goat was wonderful--the rooms were lovely and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Kristy, the proprietor, was friendly and welcoming. Also, BABY GOATS! Which leads me to my new standard for Bed and Breakfasts--BABY GOATS are way better than no baby goats.

We were looking for someplace out of the city and close to our daughter we were visiting for 5 nights. The Social goat was 2 streets away! Couldn't have been closer! We were pleasantly surprised with how nice this B & B was done inside! From the outside it looks like another average home in the neighborhood! Kristyis a very nice host and a very good cook! Our breakfasts were unique and delish! Not huge but like the website says, " a lil more than Continental.". The animals were so cute and loved to hear Kristy explain all of their personalities! They arent as close to the house as the pictues show it is a large property. We will be back again and would most definitely choose this place to stay! You can't find a decent hotel for the price of The Social Goat. The one and only issue we had was that we were on the 3rd floor which was awesome but the squirrels loved running around up there early morning and definitely woke us up!
5 on September 17, 2012
My husband and I waited until the last minute to make reservations for an overnight stay in Atlanta--we didn't expect it to be so hard to find lodging! After discovering every hotel in Atlanta was booked that weekend (Auburn game, Tennessee game, Dragoncon, etc) I started looking up B&Bs. Never having stayed in a B&B, I likely would not have even called given the prices--however, we were desperate and I called and found out they had one room available. We decided to stay even though it was higher than what we had wanted to pay for aone night stay ... AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. The house is beautiful, clean, tastefully (and restfully) decorated. It exceeded every expectation. Breakfast was delicious and the other couples staying there were also very friendly. The goats were, of course, my favorite part. My husband had been skeptical about the B&B experience and he loved it too! Given the opportunity, we would definately stay at the Social Goat again!

We were so delighted to have stumbled upon The Social Goat. My husband and I stayed here for a couple of nights during our wedding weekend and it was such a fun and luxurious experience. The house is beautiful and our room held the perfect combination of Victorian antiques and modern amenities. And we loved interacting with all the animals! Kristy was a great hostess and we would highly recommend The Social Goat to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay in Atlanta that is a bit off the beaten path.
5 on September 05, 2012
The Social Goat is probably the best example of what a Bed & Breakfast should be- clean, beautiful and exceeding with hospitality. The B&B owners Kristy and Paul were extremely helpful with tips on getting around town and places to visit. It doesn't hurt to have some of the cutest animals in the world among hanging out in the small farm/petting area (after playing with the goats and turkeys you too may not be able to consciously consume turkey again). Here are some things that I feel have been overlooked by other reviewers of importance to possible new guests- 1. WiFi is available and is quite good (D/L 10Mbps U/L 5Mbps) 2. Toiletries are available (just ask) 3. Kristy's breakfasts are far better than the best breakfast/brunch you'll find in metro Atlanta. 4. The beds are "outta this world" comfortable. 5. The sheer number of oil painting and antiques in the home will keep your head spinning. This place is gorgeous and the pics on this page don't do it justice. See ya' next year Sherman, Kristy and Paul! -Chuck & Helena

Sometimes when one travels the world there are places that offer way more than expected. I literally stumbled across this lovely place by accident, when looking for a regular Hotel close to Turner Field. I wanted to spend a week watching the Braves play, and wanted to stay close to the ballpark. My friend and I lucked out when we found the "Goat". We rented the 2 bedroom cottage for one week. It is just down the street from the main house and had all of the amenities of a regular house. Plenty of room, beautifully decorated and spotless. Everything worked fine, and the beds were comfortable!. The area was very quiet, and access to the games was just a 15 minute walk away. If you prefer to drive it is easy as well. I would be careful with the MARTA system however. The buses were frequently late and crowded. The close proximity to Grant Park was great for running, or a quick visit to a few great restaurants. But the best part of our visit to the "Goat" were Paul and Kristy, the owners. They were very nice and went out of their way to please. Everything was great, including the varied homemade breakfasts. The waffles, french toast, and quiche were delightful!!! The property with the stars of the show, the animals, is first rate. I fell in love with the goats, especially the babies....the house is beautifully decorated with antiques from all over the world. I highly recommend staying at the Social Goat. It is truly Atlanta's hidden gem.

We needed a place to stay for a few nights in Atlanta, so we decided to try our luck at the Social Goat. Great decision! The rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was amazing. We also got some great recommendations for things to do while we were staying in town. I will be staying here anytime I am visiting the Atlanta area, that's for sure.
5 on August 28, 2012
Kristy and Paul were awesome host. We were able to ride our bicycles to everywhere we wanted to go without the hassle of driving around Atlanta. Turner Field, Zoo Atlanta, Cyclorama, Grant Park, local resturants and shops fit the bill for us. Even visted Stone Mountain before we left. We had a fantastic time and will be back soon. I would suggest The Social Goat B&B to any savy traveler.
5 on August 27, 2012
We had a wonderful time. This was our second stay At The Social Goat. Kristy knows what she is doing! Great wedding venue I think too!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Social Goat B&B. Kristy and Paul have done a beautiful job renovating the 19th century house. I stayed in the Yellow room; the bed was ultra-comfortable. I wish I had been able to take advantage of using the wonderful little balcony porch off of the room. Breakfast was delicious-- Kristy is a great cook! My favorite part of the stay was playing with Olive and Daisy, Talulah and Sherman's twins. I decided to stay at the Social Goat rather than a hotel because after paying the hotel parking fee, the cost was about the same. And of course, staying at the Social Goat was phenomenally better than staying at a hotel, with it's home-like feel, great food, and wonderful goats (and turkeys, chickens, a rabbit, and a cat). I would most definitely stay here again.

The Social Goat is beautifully restored and tastefully decorated. It is a serene spot in the city. My husband and I loved the privacy and space of the Carriage House. Our three children loved the animals and the fish pond. Breakfast was delicious, Kristy was gracious, and the kids asked to come back again soon! The only downfall is that now my daughter wants a goat...

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the farm in the city. Daisy and Olive were the highlight for sure!!

Conveniently located near central Atlanta but feels out in the country. Kristy and the menagerie did a fine job of making us feel at home and gave us lots of local advice for dinners and entertainment. The room was spacious and comfortable and remained cool even in triple digit degrees outside. I highly recommend The Social Goat!

My sister and I enjoyed staying at The Social Goat. The rooms are comfortable and it feels like you are in your own home. Kristy & Paul are great hosts. The goats, rabbit, turkeys, and other sweet furry friends definitely made us smile and happy.
5 on August 06, 2012
I have stayed at the Social Goat twice now. Kristy and Paul the owners are wonderful people. Kristy makes a killer breakfast! This is NOT a hotel, so you share a bathroom in the main house but that is a minor thing really. It is quiet and very clean. The place is full of antiques and charm. Great location, right near the Zoo and Grant Park.

Since our party counted 4 persons We were allotted the separate house. Whilst enjoying the privacy we also were able to enjoy the more than welcome breakfast prepared by our host.

Lovely spot in the middle of the city. Kristy was very nice and her other guests were nice as well. She has a low key approach but is very helpful. It was a perfect place to stay and we'll definetely return.

My wife and I were attending a concert nearby and when I searched for nearby places to stay The Social Goat showed up in the search and I'm glad it did! This is a wonderful B&B! Kristy and her mother Myra made us feel right at home. The animals were delightful (there were two baby goats born in June and they are adorable). Monkey the cat was very friendly and always stopped by to visit us when he was nearby. Kriaty makes an excellent breakfast, the pecan waffles were delicious. The house itself was immaculate and filled with old antique furniture. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely do so again when in the area.

We had originally requested the top floor attic room for a 3 night stay because the room that I wanted was already reserved. The attic room was huge. Plenty of room. Twin beds on one side, big beautiful bed on the other, with couch/sitting area in the middle. I loved the use of antiques, even down to the bathroom sink. Well, after we settled in, we were asked if we didn't mind to move into the carriage house over the garage for the following two days. I was happy to do so as it was the room that I wanted in the first place. The carriage house apt was large enough for 2 people, with mini kitchen. It also had a very comfy king size bed. I loved their small farm. Turkeys, chicks, roosters, and 4 fabulous goats. Some cats and a bunny in the mix too. The breakfast was the best I have had at a B&B. Yummy pecan pancakes, French toast, delicious yogurt. I will definitely go back.

A true B&B! Great hostess and great time with the animals. And dang can Kristy cook!
4.6 on July 15, 2012
My mom and I stayed here in early July. We loved the cottage and decor of the main house. The breakfast was absolutely lovely and exceeded our expectations. We were charmed by the farm animals and were swept away by the serenity of this little oasis. Why would anyone stay in a hotel when you could stay at a charming B and B for the same price or less? Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, you will find The Social Goat an island in a sea of hustle and bustle. We were thoroughly impressed with Kristy's antique and vintage shop recommendations. She is the epitome of a warm and thoughtful host.
4.6 on July 13, 2012
The house was redone beautifully. The goats were adorable and made the trip extra special. It is not really in walking distance of any restaurants or shops, but the neighborhood is nice. It is only about a 10/15 min quick drive to the aquarium/Coke World etc. I would stay here again. It was beautiful, fun and relaxing.
5 on July 13, 2012
We loved every minute we were there. We stayed in the carriage house and had a peaceful and relaxing stay! Breakfast was DELICIOUS!! Cherise Barker
4.6 on July 11, 2012
The animals are all so cute and friendly! Breakfast was amazing and Kristy was so helpful during our stay! The location is fabulous, too...walking distance to the Atlanta Zoo and a short 10 minute drive to the Aquarium.
5 on July 09, 2012
The Social Goat was an amazing quaint bed and breakfast. The yellow room has a nice private patio complete with daybed that overlooked the animals. It was a wonderful place to nap during the thunderstorm! The animals were all approachable and the 2-week old baby goats were so sweet and adorable. Breakfast each morning was wonderful and we loved that the location was close to everything we wanted to visit in Atlanta.
3.0 on July 08, 2012
My family and I, plus our dog, stayed at the Cottage which is on the next street over from the main house. The inside was fine, not as cute as I thought from the pictures, but it worked. We were extremely disappointed in the outside of the Cottage, particularly the yard. It is in need of some serious TLC and overall needs to be in better shape as it did not look inviting at all. We specifically chose the Cottage because we brought our dog knowing there was a backyard, however, the backyard wasn't a yard but full of weeds and overgrown trees and bushes. :( Breakfast was great though.
4.6 on July 05, 2012
We had such a great time staying at the Social Goat. I surprised my husband for our anniversary with a night's stay in the carriage house and he couldn't have been more pleased. There were two new baby goats to ooo and aah over, and Kristy and Paul were super accommodating and nice. We enjoyed walking to Grant Central for dinner, riding our bikes through Grant Park, and enjoying a bit of respite. The carriage house is perfect for privacy and very comfortable. I have a feeling we'll be back again soon :-)
4.8 on July 03, 2012
Very nice atmosphere and beautiful design. My wife and I have stayed at a several B&Bs and by far, The Social Goat had the most character. Seeing the animals (even the newest members of the clan) was a treat that made the stay that much more interesting. The location is great... only minutes from Turner Field and downtown Atlanta made the stay even more enjoyable. Kristy was very personable and eagerly engaged in conversation. My only complaint is that I wish we could have stayed longer to soak more of it in.
5 on July 03, 2012
Our family of eight (ages 4 - 83) recently stayed in five different rooms for three nights. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful furnishings, delicious breakfasts, comfortable beds. All of our tourist destinations were between 5-15 minutes away. We appreciated Kristy's quiet manner and dedication to her guests. And the animals were the icing on the cake! We hope to come back some day.
5 on July 02, 2012
The Social Goat was a gorgeous little oasis conveniently located in the heart of East Atlanta. The owners made us feel right at home, introduced us to all the animals, and treated us like family. Kristy made AMAZING breakfasts, and offered lots of good recommendations for food, entertainment, etc. We would highly recommend The Social Goat to friends visiting Atlanta!
4.4 on July 02, 2012
Loved, loved, loved the house and property! Will visit again when I get the chance.
5 on July 01, 2012
Quiet neighborhood with friendly service and close to downtown Atlanta. The room was a bargain and very clean. My wife and I stayed there for our anniversary and the owners made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed our time. My wife loved the baby goats. The only negative comment would be that I am allergic to cats and there was no posted information stating that two cats roamed freely in the house. Since there were wood floors and everything was clean, I only had slight discomfort with runny nose and sneezing. I guess it is a given that animals would be present since its kinda like a little farm. Regardless, I would recommend it to anyone wanting a quaint B&B near Atlanta at a great price.
4.8 on June 29, 2012
Not only was this our first trip to Atlanta, it was our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast. I was a little nervous about not staying in a chain hotel. Who would guarantee quality? What about service. All of my worries were unfounded. The room and cottege we stayed in were beautiful and immaculately kept. Kristy and Paul were delightful caretakers. The breakfasts were amazing. And of course, the animals are adorable. I enjoyed three of the most relaxing days of vacation at the Social Goat and have heartily recommended it to all my friends. Should the occasion rise for a return trip to Atlanta, I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
4.8 on June 25, 2012
We enjoyed the facility, the food and the service. Extremely nice people running the B&B. We will stay there again.
5 on June 24, 2012
We were in Atlanta for a concert. The Social Goat was the perfect location. It is minutes from Downtown, the house is beautiful, it is comfortable, and the owners make you feel right at home. I will never stay anywhere else in Atlanta.
5 on June 21, 2012
Stayed in the cottage down a street from the main house. It felt like we were at home. The breakfast on Saturday morning was great! Friday night 2 baby goats were born. This was a great place to stay. Will definitely recommend.

would never had known this little gem was there, it is not until you drive up the drive way to the back of the house. It was a little bit of country in the city. It has been lovingly restored, some of the photos are out dated as they have now purchased more antique furniture. The only critism was breakfast, I think it would be nice to be asked what we wanted or providea menu. Other wise very good value for the money
5 on June 11, 2012
I had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. I highly recommend the Yellow Room. Great view of the farm. I look forward to returning.
4.6 on June 10, 2012
We were in Atlanta to attend a concert and celebrate a birthday with a son. Kristy and Paul are wonderful hosts and obviously love the B and B. They were always out and about making improvements in the grounds and taking care of the animals--yes there is a social goat! Of course they took good care of their guests, including a tasty breakfast. The location is excellent for being downtown, but not in a big hotel. It is in a middle class neighborhood and convenient to practically anywhere you might want to go.
4.2 on June 02, 2012
We reserved the carriage house for one night, and enjoyed it very much. Didn't stay long enough to take advantage of all the room's amenities, but it was handsome and spacious, with a nice view of the barnyard :) Kristy was a great host, and breakfast was especially lovely and delicious. Perfect for our one-night staycation!
4.6 on May 31, 2012
Great value for a unique , beautiful and comfortable Inn. Kristy is the ultimate hostess and the breakfasts were exceptional. Our family had such a good time, especially appreciated the tip to visit Madison. Thanks
5 on May 29, 2012
We only stayed a few nights but loved every minute we were there. The location of this B&B could not be any better. It is tucked away from the hustle of the city but walking distance to Grant Park for a great jog. Also there are plenty of great restaurants within a couple of miles. Our room was nicely decorated and comfortable with enough room for the two of us. There are plenty of places to sit with a book or tea and relax. The owner of the B&B was willing to accommodate any request and made us feel right at home. She encouraged us to use the upstairs balcony which was lovely. The breakfast each day was wonderful and was nicely presented. We enjoyed meeting Sherman the goat and his gal! We highly recommend a visit to The Social Goat and cannot wait to return.
5 on May 29, 2012
This was such a magical B&B! I have stayed at many B&Bs, but this is the best thus far. Kristy and Paul are really nice and accommodating. The animals really set this place apart from the other places. Tallulah & Sherman are sweet show stoppers. The turkeys even allowed some petting opportunities. I have never been close to a turkey, much less petting one. I know I will return to this beautiful and welcoming place. Jason & Barbara
4.6 on May 29, 2012
The house is beautifully restored and furnished and is extremely warm and comfortable. The hosts could hardly have been nicer.
3.6 on May 20, 2012
The Social Goat was charming and lovely. Very affordable, and the owners were very nice and great cooks! The only thing that bothered me was that I made a very specific request, was told that it would not be an issue, and then essentially had to make my special request again when we arrived.
3.6 on May 14, 2012
Pros: Romantic, wonderfully redone Victorian...the upstairs suite is at least as nice as the pictures! The location felt safe and is close enough to highways, etc. yet the house manages to feel secluded once you make it up the driveway. The animals and grounds are charming and the owners sweet about showing you around. They seemed willing to be as social as guests desired, and were never intrusive or overly familiar. Also, Kristy was very willing to work with dietary restrictions; she has gluten free down pat and breakfast was delightful. Cons: along with the dietary restrictions, do make sure you are explicit. We requested no pork and were given chicken sausages...in pork casings. We only realized it after confirming my husband's reaction and looking up the ingredients. That was our fault for not being diligent and checking the packaging before consuming (which Kristy would have gladly let us do). As I said, Gluten free was no problem and the food was very, very good. Every thing else was great :)
5 on May 14, 2012
We stayed with our toddler and had the most amazing experience. We stayed in The Carriage House which is a separate building to the main house and it worked so well for us. Close to the zoo. Easy to catch public transport. Beautiful home and area.
5 on May 12, 2012
I stayed here with my 5 year-old daughter and we only wish we could've stayed longer. Kristy was great and very accomodating to our schedule and vegetarian diet. The house is beautiful and the outdoor spaces are a complete surprise. Totally gorgeous. I will definitely stay here when I am back in town next year.
5 on May 07, 2012
My wife found this jewel in Atlanta while we were in town. Walking distance to the Zoo. The property has a whole host of farm animals that are all very social, not just the goats. I got to hold and pet Velvet Elvis the rooster. I wanted to take him home. The home is absolutely perfect. I couldn't imagine anything better. We will be back for sure.
4.8 on May 05, 2012
I was so looking forward to this stay, mainly because of the quirky factor. A little farm in the middle of Atlanta? Really? Well, it is, and it was GREAT. Kristy and Paul were fun, knew the area very well, and wonderful hosts. I instantly fell in love with the animals, the area, and my room. I will definitely stay there again WHEN I return, not IF I return. Very warm and inviting home (I met Kristy's mom, dad, and neighbors). If I could have, I would have sat on the porch with a good book or played with the critters all day. Love this place!
5 on May 02, 2012
My wife and I spent a weekend here recently while in Atlanta. It's a great, very relaxing place---a bit of the country in the heart of the city. Finding it you're gonna worry you're in a dicey part of Atlanta, but once you pull onto the street and see the place those worries vanish. It's very secluded on its own lot, and yet the Boulevard to I-20 is only yards away. The rooms are very comfortable and the atmosphere wonderfully homey. The most unique thing, naturally, are the animals. I loved getting up early and drinking my coffee with turkeys wandering all around me. I really recommend the Social Goat. The price is affordable, the comforts luxurious, and the hostess very helpful. We had a great stay and will go back again.
5 on April 23, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at the Social Goat. The farm animals are precious. We walked to Zoo Atlanta and stopped by one of the houses used in filming The Walking Dead on the way. It was just a short drive to the East Atlanta Village Market and Atlantic Station. It truly is a retreat inside the city. Looking forward to returning soon.
3.8 on April 17, 2012
My wife and I recently stayed at the Social Goat B&B for two nights. We really enjoyed our stay and had a relaxing time. The inn is close to many restaurants and cafes, and a short drive to many of Atlanta's attractions. Kristy made sure our stay was enjoyable. We fell in love with the goats. We look forward to coming back.
5 on April 16, 2012
We loved our stay!! Hate to promote it too much or it might be booked next time we want to visit! We stayed in the little house close to the main house....perfect for us and our three children! The location was ideal. Our breakfast was excellent. The goats were friendly:-)! Our accommodations were exactly what we needed! Hope to visit again soon and highly recommend to anyone wanting a getaway, or wanting a convenient place to stay while visiting the sites of Atlanta! Kristy is a wonderful hostess and was flexible with our schedule. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Now.....just don't plan your visit when we want to be there:-)!
3.4 on March 30, 2012
We enjoyed our stay and it was SO close to the Zoo where we wanted to see the Giant Pandas. Kristy was very helpful in helping us find places to eat. It's a good area if you want to avoid the commercial stays. Kristy is a good hostess. I would recommend this place.

Beautiful home, stunning Master Suite with all the amenities two road-weary women could want, including a bathroom to die for. A gracious, informative hostess, very accommodating of our unanticipated change of schedule. Great location, with proximity to the zoo, Little Five Points shopping, and Underground Atlanta. Best of all, the friendliest wheelbarrow-riding goats, strutting turkeys, dancing roosters and gingham-clad hens ever. Wish we could have stayed a week ! Will definitely return.

I never expected such a warm and welcoming environment as we experienced. Our little girl (and the big ones too) enjoyed interacting with the animals. It was an educational experiene as well as a wonderful place to come home to each night. Christy made us feel so welcome and did an outstanding job of accommidating our needs. She's a great cook too. We had six in our party and every one of us would stay again. .

My partner and I had a wonderful time at the Social Goat. Sherman and Tallulah (the goats) were fun to meet, as were the turkeys, chickens, and cats. Our host and hostess were very friendly and helpful, doing everything they could to make our short stay in Atlanta interesting and convenient. We highly recommend the Social Goat for a unique bed and breakfast experience.

I had a wonderful experience at The Social Goat. The rooms are so nice and clean, I stayed in the Yellow Room. The bathroom is nice and large. Host Kristy is incredibly friendly and helpful. I enjoyed waking up to the sound of turkeys frolicing and going out on my porch to see the goats playing. Definitely going to stay here again!
5 on February 10, 2012
Kristy and her husband Paul will make you feel like a long lost relative in town for a visit. Beautifully restored home will have you wanting to stay longer and Kristy's tasty breakfast will more than satisfy!! Her french toast could become and Atlanta legend!!

Staying at the Social Goat gives you a small taste of what life in Olds Atlanta must have been like. I am so impressed and was so comfortable I will be staying there again.

This B&B is impeccably put together from the beautiful, warm decor to the delicious breakfast spread. It is situated in a quiet residential area literally minutes to downtown. The mini-farm is a big, big draw. Love all the farm animals and the social goats themselves--Sherman and Talullah. If you want to step away from "the city" without the commute, this is the place.
4.2 on January 30, 2012
Kristy and Paul were very accommodating and went out of their way to help us get to our football game the night of our stay; they dropped us off at the Georgia Dome! The bed and breakfast is so unique to be in the middle of downtown Atlanta, we enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

I always had a bad opinion of big cities, but after staying at the Social Goat B&B in Atlanta my mind has changed. There are some of the nicest people in the world live in the big city, Thanks Kristy and Paul for letting us stay with yall. Ronnie,Rita, Ashley.Gavin, and Greyson.

We stayed at the Social Goat in April of last year for my birthday. We loved meeting Sherman, Tellulah and the other animals. The accomadations were wonderful - an absolutely beautiful home tucked in the suburbs of the big city. Breakfast was delicious - fresh eggs from the hen house! We even received a christmas card this year from Sherman and Tellulah! A great experience, can't wait to go back!!
5 on January 06, 2012
Kristy and Paul were extremely kind host with extensive knowledge of the area. They have an amazing home/bed & breakfast. I would of stayed longer had I had time in my schedule. It is probably the nicest bed and breakfast I have stayed in before.

We stayed for a weekend in July for my fiance's birthday. He loved it, made great friends with the animals, enjoyed big, delicious breakfasts and the serene surroundings. I, too, was thrilled to meet Sherman and Tallulah, the resident goats, and their companions. The home is decorated beautifully, Kristy was so warm and knowledgeable of area activities. We'll be back soon, I hope! Oh, and the rooms are also very nice, with comfy beds and interesting nick-knacks. :-)
4.4 on January 03, 2012
We had a delightful stay and have already recommended this B&B to others and booked our next stay. Setting is very attractive, loved all the animals, interior is gorgeous with lots of warm, inviting wood. The breakfast was excellent and service warm, accommodating and friendly.

My family (three of us--my husband, 4 year old son, and I) stayed at The Social Goat B&B on recommendation from a local friend, as we came from out of town to take my son to the Georgia Aquarium back in August. We're so happy we found this place! It was much nicer than any of the downtown hotels, and it was right in Grant Park, which is a funky neighborhood with lots of stuff to do (farmer's market, playground, zoo, awesome cafes, great food). We stayed in the third floor suite, and it was enormous and beautiful. We had brought a toddler aerobed for our son, only to find when we got there that Kristy & Paul had made up a separate bed for him, which was terrific. Kristy was great about showing my son the goats and turkeys on the property, which he loved. The house is pristine, spotless, and beautifully restored and decorated, and the hospitality (and breakfast) were wonderful. Kristy & Paul were welcoming, let us store stuff for our son in the fridge downstairs, invited us to join them for lunch, and gave us local tips and pointers. The B&B is also literally right next to the great zoo, and a super-short drive (less than 5 minutes) from tons of really kid-friendly restaurants in Grant Park. Highly recommended for families with kids--we definitely want to find an excuse to return!
5 on November 30, 2011
Our family was very grateful for the hospitality of Kristy and Paul. Breakfast was generous and delicious. Their home is beautifully restored and maintained. The Grant Park location was perfect for visiting the zoo and the off street parking was a real plus. It was evident that Kristy and Paul expend a great deal of energy keeping this B&B in top condition. They are a dynamic duo.

Everything was perfect! We had asked for a few special things for our wedding night such as flowers and champagne and it was perfect! :) We decided to stay in atlanta on our way to the mountains for our honeymoon and could not have picked a better place!
5 on November 14, 2011
It was important to our daughter who lives in Atlanta that our entire family be able to stay together the weekend of her wedding. I found the Social Goat online, and it ended up being perfect for our needs. We stayed there twice during the weeks leading up to the wedding and then booked all the rooms for the weekend of the wedding. All of our family would tell you that we loved it, from the little grandkids all the way up to the great grandma. It helped make the wedding weekend very special. Kristy is very flexible and hospitable. Friends were able to stop by and visit with us. Breakfasts were great. Incredible to find such a special little oasis tucked away near downtown Atlanta.

My first exposure to 'Southern Hospitality', was a delightful experience! The house and grounds are beautiful,peaceful,and calming. The house is filled with wonderful examples of victorian furniture. Thrown in for good measure, a mini zoo consisting of goats, turkeys, and chickens. The chickens provided the eggs for a lovely country breakfast every day. Christy and Paul are gracious, friendly, hosts and I look forward to my next visit. Pat G. New York, N.Y.

Kristy is a very welcoming host and her breakfasts are amazing! We stayed in the Yellow Room and and enjoyed an afternoon nap on the daybed out on the balcony. The interior of the house is beautifully decorated and well-kept. It's also just minutes from downtown and several good restaurants and bars.. Fair warning, if the rooster doesn't wake you up early in the morning, the pots and pans in the kitchen probably will. I highly recommend this B&B. -The Turners

I LOVED my stay at the Social Goat!!! Kristy is absolutely awesome!!! The property is amazing - a quiet sanctuary in Atlanta. The house is beautiful. I stayed in the yellow room and I loved the personal balcony. Great location, great rooms, great people. LOVED IT!!!!!

If looking for a relaxing break in luxury surroundings, with the added bonuses of cute goats, turkeys and chickens aswell as the friendliest, most helpful Owners, then the Social Goat is the only choice you can make. The B+B is a beautiful, spacious Victorian with large, elegantly decorated rooms. The breakfasts are as sumptuous as you could hope for. The presence of a "farm" environment gives The Social Goat a unique and appealing mixture of a rural/ urban feel. But it is in the sheer friendliness, helpfulness and willingness to "go the extra mile" that makes this B and B such an outstanding one. Kristy and Paul made our stay such a pleasure through their cheerful assistance throughout our stay, with advice on things such as restaurants, sightseeing and the all- important directions. Through Kristy's help, we almost became masters of Atlanta's Marta system!! They made us feel completely at ease, almost as if we were staying with friends. In short, we can not praise The Social Goat or it's owners Kristy and Paul highly enough. If you are planning to stay some time in the fantastic City of Atlanta, make sure you choose this one. Andrew and Alison Powell, North Wales United Kingdom.
4.4 on October 19, 2011
This was our first stay at a B&B of any sort, and it was amazing. The house and rooms were immaculate, and the "farm" atmosphere just added that little something extra. Kristy and Paul were excellent hosts. Even though we live in the metro Atlanta area, we WILL be staying here again. Other reviews have mentioned that the neighborhood is dicey, but it is nothing of the sort, being rather typical of an older in-town area.
4.6 on October 07, 2011
My wife and I stayed in The Carriage House room. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. The pictures on this site are exactly what we got. It felt like we were staying at a friend's/family's house. Kristy was very warming and welcoming. We didn't get a chance to meet Paul. Breakfast was awesome (eggs, waffles, coffee, fresh pineapple, strawberries). Located a short drive from ... basically everything Atlanta has to offer. Everything was pleasent, the only negative was my wife felt a little closter phobic in the bedroom. I think the location and design of the room being above the garage and in the A-frame portion of the roof had to do with the confined-ness of the room. The room didn't make me feel confined and her feelings definately had no impact on our stay. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows and blankets. We recommend this B&B to all our friends and family.
5 on October 04, 2011
We were in town for the Music Midtown festival and made last minute reservations at the Social Goat B&B. It worked out beautifully; the management assured us a late check in would be no problem and the location is at a quiet area. We stayed in the studio above the garage and had plenty of room and a balcony to sit on to look over the koi pond. There's a little farm area with chickens, turkeys, and the two miniature goats that the B&B are named after and it was very cute. Breakfast was homemade waffles, bacon and fruit, very delicious. We plan on coming back in November.

The goats, turkeys, chickens & cats are great. Super location just a few blocks from the ATL Zoo & Grant Park.

We stayed in the seperate carriage house room and it was very comfortable and quiet. Definately will go there again. Kelly, Ann & Erika Christensen

Loved the location on the edge of Grant Park and the zoo. The goats are cute as can be and the turkeys strut about with such imperious dignity you have to respect them. The innkeeper (Kristy) was very accommodating and friendly and went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of. We will definitely return to this location on our next trip to Atlanta and hope for a more extended stay!

Absolutely amazing bed & breadfast. We loved every aspect of this place. Our room was super clean and comfortable, the breakfast delicious, the animals just precious, and kristy was wonderful. The location is perfect. It is close to so many wonderful things but you feel like youre away from it all. The house and furnishings are unbelievable. We highly recommend this place!
5 on September 07, 2011
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. Sherman and Tallulah are a hoot as are all of the animals. It's hard to believe it, but this place feels like a farm even though it is in the middle of downtown Atlanta. Kristy is very knowledgeable about the area. She told us about some great places to visit and one of the best restaurants we've eaten at! We are definitely going to stay here again.

Exactly what I needed for my parents for the night. They loved every minute of it! The breakfast was excellent, and Paul and Kristy are lovely! Totally quiet retreat in the middle of town!

Kristy and Paul were friendly and accommodating. My husband, my two kids and I stayed in the roomy 3rd floor suite. It was clean and the breakfasts were delicious and fresh. We would definitely stay there again when we return to Atlanta.

The Social Goat Bed & Breakfast is a must stay location for anyone looking to get a real feel for Atlanta. Located in the Grant Park Neighborhood, one gets a feeling for everyday life in Atlanta at an Inn that is anything but ordinary. It's close to the Zoo, Turner Stadium and Downtown ATL. My family had a great time and will definitely check to see if they are available for our next extended stay in Atlanta.

Recently, I joined other family members who were staying at the Social Goat in Atlanta. This is just an amazing place located near Grant Park and the Atlanta Zoo. The pictures on this website are accurate but can't begin to do justice to the quality and quanity of the beautiful Victorian furniture and the multitude of paintings. The gardens surrounding the main house are lush with a interesting variety of plants and the "backyard farm" is fun and unique. I loved watching & learning about the care of Tallulah, Sherman(goats) and Old Spice, Smokey & Sugar( turkeys).The B&B was clean, comfortable & spacious. Kristy is a delightful and hospitable host who really wants guests to enjoy staying in her home. You will love The Social Goat!

My fiance, step-daughter and I stayed at the Social Goat B & B and had a wonderful time. Kristy and Paul's hospitality was truly gracious. The carriage house was comfortable and the grounds lovely. Breakfast was deliciously gourmet and unique, sweet potato waffles, blueberry pancakes and stuffed french toast. Sherman, Tallulah and the other barnyard animals were delightful. We felt like long-time neighbors when we left. The Social Goat B & B was a beautiful venue for our wedding and a wonderful place to start our memories together as husband and wife and a family.

My family just spent a perfect weekend at The Social Goat. We were in town to watch our nephew play for the Rangers against the Braves. Since there were other family members in town we hosted a small family reunion for twenty after the saturday game. It could not have gone better. Everyone loved the place. The kitchen was perfect for serving buffet style, and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out in the dinning room, sitting rooms and porches. The children loved the farm animals and the fish pond. Kristy was prepared for every possible need. She fed us two incredible breakfast with enough variety for everyone to enjoy. She even had bubbles for our 18 month old grandson. You won't be disappointed.

Staying at The Social Goat was a great decision. We absolutely loved the buildings, architecture and decor but the best part is all the B&B inhabitants (human and non-human!). Kristy and Paul were so nice and welcoming and all the animals were hilarious and cute. We would most definitely stay here again in a heartbeat.

We enjoyed ourselves so much while staying at the Social Goat Bed and Breakfast. The Innkeeper was so helpful, friendly and took care of everything. The Inn is nicely furnished and decorated and very clean! The breakfast was delicious and the location perfect for exploring Atlanta. We felt very safe. The goats are sweet! We highly recommend the Social Goat B&B!

Enjoyed our stay at The Social Goat and will likely stay here again. Kristy & Paul are wonderful hosts and we loved meeting Sherman & Talullah - they are adorable!

I could not have asked for a better place to stay in downtown Atlanta. Kristy was such a magnificent host, and we enjoyed her so much. She is so easy to talk to, very helpful, and just overall pleasant to be around. We would definitely stay there again and recommend this Bed & Breakfast to our friends!

I have to say I was very impressed and so delighted at my stay at the Social Goat. I enjoyed every second of my stay there. My children had a wonderful time with the goats, chickens, roosters, turkeys, the cats, and even the fish. The rooming was very relaxing and an escape from our busy daily living. It originally was a gift to my love and our children but I have to state that it was a huge gift to myself as well. Much love and thanks to Kristy and Paul. It was definitely a pleasure and an honor to be in your presence. You gave us so much love and comfort, for that I am so grateful!

If you're looking for a fun, unique place to stay, this is it! The small barnyard and 2 adorable miniature goats (Sherman and Tullulah) give unbelievable charm to this Atlanta Bed and Breakfast. We were able to spend quite a bit of time in the large pen area with the animals, and learned a lot about them from owners Kristie and Paul. You have to watch Paul play with Sherman...he can get the goat to hop around on his back legs, hilarious! The goats really do like to socialize and I ended up with one of them in my lap at one point. When we returned from dinner that night one of the sweet cats came running over to us for attention. So we sat on the comfy wicker furniture on the back porch and petted him for a long time before retiring to the Carriage House. The Carriage House was so lovely! Very spacious and oh so private since it's removed from the main house. The living room has a cool peaked ceiling and stained glass windows. Nice bathroom and bedroom, cozy soft bed. Overall very roomy and private which is what we wanted and didn't mind paying for. Kristie noticed a comment I made about liking to sleep in, so she offered to bring our breakfast to the Carriage House at 9 am so we could enjoy it at our leisure. Wow that was so thoughtful! There's a microwave and stove so you can heat anything up if needed, and you can brew your own coffee in the kitchen when you're ready. I am a very light sleeper, so I always travel with a small fan for white noise. If I didn't have my fan, I may have heard the air conditioning cycling on and off since the mechanicals were on the other side of one bedroom wall. But it wasn't an issue. We were also glad we brought the fan because it helped move the air- there's no ceiling fan in the bedroom and the a/c wasn't super-strong in that room. Spending time with the animals was really the highlight of this place for us. It was something different and we enjoyed it immensely!

This B&B is absolutely gorgeous and peaceful even though it is in the middle of a busy city. It is very centrally located and in a nice neighborhood. Kristy is incredibly nice and a great cook! I highly recommend this B&B!

I love this place! Suggested by a friend for its proximity to an event. Wish there'd been more time to stay. The innkeepers are darlings, as are the goats and chickens. Beautiful house, well appointed, nice neighborhood, easy to find. My breakfast (with eggs from the hen-house) was just superb and I can hardly wait to return. Thanks Kristy!

I would recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a beautiful place to stay with the most glorious of animals, the goat. We had our 14 month old son with us and he loved the Tellulah and Sherman (the two dwarf goats)! The owners are great, they even gave us a CD of a local band from Asheville where we were headed. I would recommend it to any of our friends.

My husband surprised me with a stay at a Bed and Breakfast...neither of us has ever stayed in one before. He said that he chose a Bed and Breakfast because it was actually a little bit cheaper, if not equal to staying in a hotel, and he had remembered me saying I'd like to go to one. When we we're driving through, it wasn't exactly the greatest part of town, so we were both a little bit skeptical, but hey, it's Atlanta right? But when we pulled up to the house, we both thought it was beautiful. We were greeted by the nice lady that owns the Bed and Breakfast and she showed us to our room. She also showed us the goats! They're so awesome! We loved petting them! Sherman was my favorite... (he's the one in the picture). We were pretty impressed with our room. We stayed in the one on the 3rd floor. The house itself was absolutely gorgeous. The next morning, we had breakfast with two other couples and enjoyed some great food and conversation. Kristy even talked with us about the house a little bit and the things she's done to it to make it was it is today. We really enjoyed looking around the home and thought it was very cool. We enjoyed the different of not being in a crowded hotel with lots and lots of guests and enjoyed the relaxation of it.

Incredible place all the way around. 1 block away from Grant Park and the Zoo, 5 minutes to almost every other destination in Atlanta and you'd never know you were in downtown Atlanta. The Social Goat is very close to all kinds of eateries and shops. We stayed in the carriage house overlooking the barnyard. Watching the goats play around and getting wheelbarrow rides makes staying in this great neighborhood even better. Why would you stay in one of the impersonal hotels downtown when you can meet Paul and Kristy and experience the great history and ambiance of the Social Goat?

We recently had a wonderful overnight stay at The Social Goat, which does indeed have two very social goats on the premises. I had looked for a B and B near my daughter's home in Atlanta so that my husband and I could take our two young grandsons off for an 18-hour "vacation" that would make them happy. And The Social Goat did. We stayed in the lovely one-bedroom apartment over the garage and enjoyed an excellent, boy-appropriate breakfast, but we also got to pet and feed animals, be woken by a rooster, and feed fish in the fish pond. Christy was a very thoughtful hostess, and I just wish that I could recommend her beautifully restored farmhouse to more people.

Cristy was great. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. My kids loved playing with the goats and feeding the turkeys. Breakfast was yummy with truly fresh eggs, bacon, french toast, homemade biscuits - way more than we could eat. Definitely a place we'll return to.

This was our first B&B experience. It could not have been any better! Kristy is truely a wonderful hostess. She had great knowledge of things to do in Atlanta. We stayed on the 3rd Floor suite. This worked out so well for the 4 of us. The entire property is beautiful, clean and well maintained. The kids had a blast interacting with all of the animals. I would not hesitate to stay here again and have been passing on this location to all of my co-workers. You would not be disappointed with the Social Goat.

Very cute place with a little mini-farm with goats, turkeys, and chickens outside. Very well kept inside. Nice service and conveniently located.

This bed and breakfast has a lot to offer. The rooms are clean, beautifully decorated with antiques and fairly priced; the location is great--within walking distance of restaurants and attractions; and the farm animals add a unique experience! Our hosts were gracious. Breakfast was delicious. We look forward to returning to Atlanta and The Social Goat.

A beautiful house, and very nice hostess, but breakfast was not what I normally expect from a B&B. It was good but I could have cooked scrambled eggs and bacon at home.

The Social Goat is a treasure in Atlanta! The home is beautiful and the owners were friendly and gracious. What a treat to walk outside and visit with the four-legged social goats--as well as assorted chickens and turkeys. The neighborhood is incredibly quiet and walkable. We enjoyed strolling to a local restaurant for dinner, and we went to the Atlanta Zoo, which is nearby. Next time I am in Atlanta, I will stay there again.

Our stay at The Social Goat was absolutely perfect. It's a great place if you don't have the time to get far away, but want to treat yourself. We felt as if we were miles away from home (we live in Atlanta). Kristy was respectful of personal space and let you do your own thing. We will definitely go back!

I stayed at the social goat b&b and couldn't believe how close it was to all the downtown attractions. You could walk to the park and the zoo, as well as restaurants. I want to come back when the braves baseball season starts again.
