Why stay at a boring hotel when you have this option nestled in the heart of Atlanta? My wife and I just had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Virginia Highland Bed and Breakfast! Adele is a perfect host. She met us when we arrived and saw to our every comfort throughout our entire stay. We were provided keys to come and go as we please. She even let us charge our electric car overnight! The B&B is super clean, well-decorated and full of character with an eclectic mix of styles and antiques that simply works. Love the porch and grounds too. Its location in Virginia Highlands is great combination of being close to the Piedmont Park, Botanical Garden, Ponce City Market, Plaza Theater and Virginia Highland shops and restaurants while still being quiet for a great night's sleep. Georgia Tech and Emory are a short drive away. Breakfast was delicious too! We live in the burbs of Atlanta so this was a quasi-staycation twist from our cookie cutter suburbs. Looking forward to a repeat visit in the near future! Highly recommend!

Peaceful "Garden Retreat" in Great Location

Not wanting to stay in a hotel on my week long visit to Atlanta, I researched B&B's in the Piedmont Park area. WOW! Could not have been more pleased with the location, the feeling of 'welcome', the spring explosion of color, or the tranquil morning coffee on the private balcony. I stayed in "The Victorian", a lovely corner room on the second story overlooking the lush backyard. Adele introduced me to morning walks through her neighborhood, closeby Orme Park with its secluded woods and stream, fun shops and historic buildings on N. Highland, the local Farmer's Market, and Alon's Bakery and Market (great for picnic items throughout my stay). The Symphony, the High Museum, the Botanical Gardens, and great restaurants were all minutes away by car. Visiting my son was the purpose for my trip, but finding Adele's was an added bonus! I will be back!

Perfect weekend!

Adele's BB was the perfect place to spend my 55th birthday weekend. My best friend had arranged the weekend at the Virginia Highland BB and we were greeted with friendly enthusiasm when we arrived on Friday. Throughout the weekend we enjoyed a very clean and comfortable room, complimentary snacks left in a small basket in our room, a beautiful view of her gardens, and 2 delicious breakfasts. Having lived in the Va/Highland area for the past 35+ years, Adele was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions about local activities and restaurants. Although we have lived in the Atlanta area all our lives, it was so much fun to avoid the large, impersonal hotel experience and become immersed in the local color of the neighborhood. Can't wait to plan another girl's weekend and will definitely contact Adele to help with our plans.

Perfect Getaway

The room is always (yes, we stay there frequently) clean, well appointed, maintained, comfortable, private and convenient. Couldn't ask for a better alternative to the big, impersonal hotels!!!

Best Business Trip... felt like home.
