This was my second stay. I discovered it a few years ago when I needed a quick getaway. Had a lovely stay and returned for a similar experience. great food. Great space. The owner is very nice and does not hover. I plan to return.

Received a gift certificate for my anniversary and looked at many B & B's on the website. Maison LaVigne came with very good reviews and I decided to give it a try. The reviews were spot on. The place was convenient, clean and what can I say about elaine, our host. She is the sweetest person I have met in years. Friendly, welcoming and an incredible chef. We opted for the diner for two and enjoyed it thoroughly. Everything was perfect. The bed in the Bordeaux room was exquisite. We have found a new home away from home and above all, we have found a new friend in Elaine.

The experience was excellent, will stay again if we were in town in GA. Great service, very attention to detail and customer service is very welcoming. Very personalized chef and great breakfast food. I highly recommended Maison LaVigne for anyone who wants the B&B experience.

Eileen made our stay at the Maison LaVigne was incredible! We arrived at the end of a "7 days of Christmas" that I was giving to my girlfriend. The stay was to set the stage for a proposal. Eileen helped by making sure everything was in order for my daughter and I to ask my girlfriend. When we arrived she gifted the girls with Roses and a surprise tea party! The next morning after everything was settled and we were engaged. She made an awesome French toast breakfast with fruit, eggs, and more tea. We took engagement photos upstairs and on the porch that came out wonderful. Can't wait to visit again in the summer! She even suggested we have my daughter and a few friends come back for a tea party! Overall, great experience.

Oh what a happy tummy I had after staying here! My fiancé and I had a lovely time in Atlanta right before New Years and it was so nice to have a romantic, unique place to stay each night. The icing on the cake was the culinary delights that greeted us for breakfast each morning. As a vegan, I was nervous but, Eileen was very willing to accommodate me and my tastebuds were fully satisfied. (We did call ahead and she was happy to make vegan breakfasts for us.) I hope she posts the vegan French Toast she made with toasted bananas on her blog soon; it was heavenly. I would love to replicate it!!

Our stay was like a scene out of Ernest Hemingway's book "A Moveable Feast." This is the place to stay and finish writing a novel or be inspired to write one. The hospitality shown by Eileen and her dog Mac (Mac doesn't have fur, for those who allergic to dogs) are first rate. The rooms are romantically decorated with antiques and quite comfortable. There's comfy nooks throughout the house to curl up and read a book. There's no need to dine out because Eileen makes the best food and will cater to whatever your dietary needs are. If you are taking a road trip, Eileen will prepare a picnic for you. If you are a couple that wants privacy, dining in your room or the upstairs salon is no problem. If socializing and making new friends is to your liking, sitting at the round dining table in the kitchen, you are bound to have interesting conversations. During the two nights we stayed, we encountered both a jazz pianist (great impromptu concert at Eileen's piano) and folk singers along with people attending a military reunion. Eileen herself, is a born storyteller. Only con (if you can call it that is) the inn is an older home. Sound can carry between the two rooms on the bottom floor. (But not much louder than staying at hotel with adjoining rooms.) The location is convenient to both Atlanta and day trips throughout GA.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary weekend away at Maison Lavigne! Eileen is a fabulous, fun, and thoughtful hostess! Foodies, this is the B & B for you!! Delicious breakfast and culinary tips started our mornings! She even taught us the proper, French, way to prepare French press coffee...we've prepared it that way every day since we've been home! We stayed in the Bordeaux suite & it was lovely and romantic. The attention to detail and comfort is superb! By far, the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in away from home! We really loved lounging on the big, comfy, quiet porch with good wine both evenings. I would challenge any guest that hears Eileen's laugh drifting through the house to not laugh as well! I am sure we will be back!!

Came in late after my wedding and Eileen answered promptly to take us to our beautiful suite! Chose this location because it was close to the airport and it meant we would not have to travel much prior to our international honeymoon flight. It was a quick cab ride from the house to the airport and Eileen even offered for our car to stay at her house but we had someone take us to the B and B so we did not have a car! The house and grounds are quaint and charming! Eileen's culinary skills are fantastic and we had a delicious breakfast. We will return here anytime we have an early morning flight from the ATL airport. We will also return for a romantic weekend and to eat Eileen's cooking again!

Awesome. My first stay definitely will not be my last. Room was cozy and romantic. Hostess is adorable and made me feel at home. We weren't rushed to leave and the food was great. I will definitely be going back and staying longer. Darrin......an oversatisfied guest
