A perfect place to visit Atlanta, just a short drive into the city. We selected the "Royal Suite" and enjoyed relaxing on our balcony after a day of sight seeing. Kathryn, our Innkeeper made us feel welcome and prepared delicious breakfasts. We definitively will stay there again on our next visit to Atlanta.
My husband and I stayed here for two nights and my only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay. This 1-room B&B offers perfect comfort and privacy. David is a gracious host and makes sure that you are well taken care of for the duration of your stay. His breakfasts were hearty, simple and delicious and the breakfast nook was wonderful for watching the world wander by while enjoying delicious cups of coffee. Finally, the location of this inn is PERFECT for someone brand new to Atlanta, or visiting for the millionth time. Walking distance to Piedmont Park and the new Beltline, you can get anywhere that you'd like by foot or bike, or by hopping on the city transit MARTA. We WILL be back.
We are adding David’s Greenwood B&B to our A-list of great places to stay and highly recommend it as one of the best deals in Atlanta. It has all of the big C's we look for: Clean: everything from bathroom to kitchen. Comfortable: relaxed ambiance with a good bed for sleeping & comfortable sitting areas with adjustable lighting; nothing is pretentious. Convenient: close walking & driving distance to good restaurants, markets, major attractions. Cost: Hard to beat value for a 525 sq. ft. quiet private fully furnished apartment that includes a full breakfast every morning! Capable host/owner: David is a great host: amiable, approachable, and accommodating; very easy to talk to and ask for advice. He's quite a chef who prepares & serves generous portions of delicious breakfasts like fresh spinach, mushroom, onion & cheese omelette with toast,butter & jam and a fresh fruit bowl along with OJ and coffee. Mahalo nui loa(Thank you very much) David for taking such good care of us during our first visit to Atlanta. Aloha, Reynold & Jenny Choy
The Twelve Oaks B&B was one of the most beautiful B&B my husband & I have stayed at. We stayed in a third floor room with a stunning canopy bed. The bathroom was to die for with the modern air jetted bath and a wonderful walk in shower for two. The B&B was spotless and immaculate from top to bottom. The breakfast that was served was perfection. It was a perfect southern homemade, piping hot breakfast. The grounds & gardens were perfect for pictures and just to walk around to enjoy the beauty of it all. If you are in this area, you've got to experience this historic bed and breakfast.
We really enjoyed our stay at Greenwood Bed and Breakfast. The location is great and the neighborhood lovely. The accommodations were excellent with a very spacious living area. The owner is helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
This B&B is truly a hidden gem in Atlanta! We have stayed there twice and will continue to come back. The accommodations are wonderful, it is beautiful, extremely clean and private. The owner David, is so pleasant and accommodating. This location is close to everything, Mid Town, Piedmont Park, Virginia Highlands, shopping and great restaurants..all within a nice walking distance if you choose. Just walking in the neighborhood is wonderful, you feel like you have a home away from home. We highly recommend the Greenwood Bed and Breakfast to anyone that visits Atlanta, you will truly enjoy your stay there.
A little off putting to arrive with suitcases facing a large number of steep steps up to the front door with a sign that asked guests to use front door ! However parking is up the slope behind the house and entry was "on the flat". Plus Nikko kindly heaved both suitcases in for us. We stayed in the Hinman Suite and very nice it was too. The heated marble tiles in the bathroom and towel rack were much appreciated during our stay in March Breakfast was delicious, as were the cakes and cookies thoughtfully left on the sideboard. As a whole, top quality with excellent hosts.
This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in a great area of Atlanta. Restaurants and a park within walking distance. The rooms were clean, clean and so comfortable. The hosts, Lori and Paul were so welcoming and gracious. Absolutely scrumptious breakfast. There is nothing not to like here!
I enjoyed the Blue Room on the second floor, the house is quiet and elegantly decorated with Country French furnishings, the goat farm made me feel at home in the middle of Atlanta, and the location is centrally located with Zoo Atlanta near by. Will definitely recommend the Social Goat to future travelers and thank you Kristy, for your delicious morning breakfasts and accommodating check-in procedure upon my arrival.
We stayed at the Royal Sweet and it was peaceful and romantic. Staff was excellent, and breakfast was great! The area was great to walk around and enjoy the older Victorian houses. Short driving distance to Downtown and Dining.
My aunt is a huge Gone with the Wind fan. She knew we were going to a B&B but not the name. When she saw the beautiful columns abd the name, Twelve Oaks, she squealed with delight. The home and grounds are gorgeous!. All the bedrooms have their own bathroom and eachvof the rooms are beautifully decorated.
Una città rinata dalle proprie ceneri, che ha saputo ricostruire con coraggio e tenacia tutto quello che la Guerra Civile americana aveva portato via.
È la capitale della Georgia e il suo fulcro turistico, con più di trecento strutture alberghiere e centinaia di bed & breakfast ad Atlanta capaci di ospitare 35 milioni di turisti ogni anno. Una metropoli di oltre 500.000 abitanti fondata nel 1837 sotto il nome di Terminus, in quanto parte conclusiva del progetto ferroviario Western and Atlantic Railroad.
La città divenne presto un punto strategico per il benessere economico e militare georgiano fino alla sanguinosa battaglia contro le truppe del generale Sherman, che rasero letteralmente al suolo Atlanta, costringendo quel che restava della popolazione a ripartire da zero. Una città fra le più accessibili degli Stati Uniti, il cui costo della vita è inferiore del 40% rispetto alla più quotata New York, capace di ricostruire un centro nevralgico del sistema statunitense con personalità e industrie di estrema rilevanza per l'intero panorama mondiale.
Fra le innumerevoli attrazioni offerte da Atlanta, le più amate dai turisti sono sicuramente il Georgia Aquarium (il più grande acquario al coperto del mondo) e tutta una serie di parchi (Centennial Olympic Park, Stone Mountain Park, nonché il Botanic Garden e il celebre Zoo di Atlanta), nonché musei (più di trenta, come quelli dedicati alla Coca-Cola, Martin Luther King e Margaret Mitchell), teatri e studi televisivi (FOX Theater e CNN Studios).
La presenza decennale di milioni di immigrati ha introdotto innumerevoli mutazioni nella cucina tipica, abitualmente basata su pollo fritto, verdure fresche e un largo utilizzo del tè, fino a trasformarla in una delle città con la più alta concentrazione di ristoranti (di diverse tradizioni) al mondo, passando per la classica concezione fast-food à la americana fino alla cucina italiana, dalle ricette tipiche orientali a quelle di provenienza sud-americana.
D'altra parte, due prerogative culinarie della città di Atlanta non possono che essere la Coca-Cola (fondata da John Stith Pemberton nel 1886) e il ristorante drive-in Varsity, vera icona dei fast-food statunitensi.
Atlanta, caratterizzata da un clima sub-tropicale umido, alterna inverni piuttosto miti (con temperature sui 10°) ad afosissime e caldissime estati (temperature dai 32° ai 38°), e conta tantissime rassegne periodiche lungo tutto il suo territorio, fra cui il Dogwood Festival, kermesse dedicata alle arti floreali, che insieme al Film Festival e al Music Midtown rappresentano gli eventi più attesi dai turisti di tutto il mondo.
