Spur of the moment trip to visit the folks, but wanted to experience my home town from a different perspective. My son and I stayed 4 days and I didn't want to leave. My favorite part was the garden and my son loved Bob the duck. Best breakfast I've ever had too! We'll be back!!


Eclectic place in a charming area

Very casual B&B in a beautiful neighborhood filled with large restored homes. Eleanor is laid back and very easy to talk to. A few blocks from the Marta station, so it is easy to get here from the airport. All of Inman Park's restaurants are within easy, and SAFE, walking distance--Krog Street Market http://www.krogstreetmarket.com/, three blocks to the west, is a wonderful place to get a local beer, food and dessert, even closer is The Albert, and a few more blocks will bring you to 10 more restaurants. If you can't find something you want to eat in Inman Park you just don't like to eat. Also close by is the Beltline http://beltline.org/, a great walking path that can lead you to Ponce City Market (about a 1.5 mile walk from the B&B--there is NO parking at the market so walking is your best bet), where you can eat, shop, and just look around at the old Sears store and warehouse http://www.poncecitymarket.com/ Bob the duck is an interesting addition. He is an outdoor duck so don't worry about having him underfoot. You can visit with him if you wish, or just watch him out the back door. Another place to visit within walking distance is the Carter Presidential Library, if that is you are into Presidential Libraries, or President Carter (it's well done). Parking is easy in front of the B&B if you get there by car. The Allman Brothers did stay here at one time, but Duane didn't die there--he died in California.


Very good

Comfortable stay in a pleasant Inn. Enjoyed meeting Eleanor and Bob the dude. Felt welcome and well cared for.

Inman Park B&B feels like home, or at least home as I like to envision it. Charming, but not overdone. The innkeeper is friendly and casual -- whatever you want is just fine. The two cats are charmers and Bob the Duck (who lives in the back yard) is very special. An easy walk to the MARTA station, where a couple of buses also stop (a 15-minute ride directly to Emory University). Only downside is that there's not much else within walking distance (tho' the only restaurant, the One-Eared Stag, is excellent).


Avoid

I've stayed in BnBs before and this was close to a nightmare. Rusty water, moldy linnens, little to no service, although breakfast was basic and Okay. I would look around before pulling the trigger on this one...


Coca Cola King, Nice Proprietor and a pair of nice cats

This B&B is very convenient to downtown and the MARTA. It was built about 100 years ago by one of the Coca Cola founders. The Almon Brothers apparently used it as headquarters when Atlanta as one of the died there. An interesting old community with a few houses that Sherman missed when he tried to burn down all Atlanta. Neighbor has many restored old houses, a lake with a goose and some remaining homes that need restoring. It is a pleasant and rather quiet area a short ways from a business district an several warehouses and a scattering of restaurants. I would likely stay there again if planning to be in Atlanta.
