Home away from home!

5 on April 26, 2014

During my road trip across America, I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful establishment. Betsy was very accommodating and made us feel more then welcome. With an open deck, workout room, living room area, and two perusal bathrooms, The Cottage in Decatur is more then just a bed and breakfast, it's a home away from home getaway!

Great getaway!

We stayed at The Cottage in April, and it far exceeded our expectations. Had we known how nice it was, we would have planned for a longer stay. Betsy was a great host, and the place was large and private. We went to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke, and also to Stone Mountain, and it was in a great place for minimal travel time to each of those areas. Any time we are in the Atlanta area, we will be staying here again. Highly recommended.

Best b & b we have ever stayed in!

We were amazed at all the upscale amenities at The Cottage. The walk-in shower, extra-long bathtub, an exercise room that included a whole-body vibration machine, a full kitchen, beautiful sunroom, upstairs wet bar and high efficiency washer/dryer, sitting room with a flat screen TV with many premium movie channels, a huge bedroom and the biggest walk-in closet I've ever seen, far outclassed any of our previous b & b experiences. Betsy is a wonderful hostess and we appreciated her flexibility in our departure time.

The Cottage is the Best!!

Betsy is a wonderful host for her bed and breakfast. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, and I was amazed at the amenities - a washer and dryer, a walk-in closet and the bathtub was incredible! I will be recommending The Cottage to my brother and sister-in-law who will be visiting in Atlanta sometime in the fall. Thanks, Betsy. Mary

Just right

The Cottage is a real find: spacious, yet intimate; quiet, yet close to what you need in Decatur; private, yet Betsy makes herself available if you need anything. By far the best B&B experience I've ever had. One note: if you are looking for the communal aspect of B&B-dom, this is not for you; no breakfast is served in the morning where you commingle with other guests. But if you need, as I did, to eat breakfast privately while getting work done and preparing for the day, this is — just right. Now I need to come back when I can sit outside on the porch...
