Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Head Lake - Almost a Bed & Breakfast

You will never want to stay anywhere else after you visit us just once

We designed this retreat to be everything you need to escape for a few days or for a longer sabbatical, no matter how active or sedentary a respite your heart desires. Whether you are on a business trip and don’t want to have a “hotel experience” or you want a charming and convenient location for visiting the northern part of Atlanta, this will be perfect. (There are very few bed-and-breakfasts in this area.)

About the apartment:

Paint, carpet, heat & air, and appliances are all new and fresh.

This is a really charmingly private 800-sq.-ft. suburban retreat, nestled discreetly at one end of a large home in the quiet suburbs of northern Atlanta (Roswell). In addition to a spacious den and comfortable king-sized bedroom with uber-comfortable pillow-top mattress, it has a morning kitchen-wet bar. It has three sets of French doors opening to a private tree-lined deck. It has a travertine shower and five closets. It is completely partitioned from the rest of the home and has its own private entrance.

The suite consists of several rooms:

--The den has double french-door entry, a 42' flat screen TV, and a desk (with a 24' flat screen monitor, a keyboard and a mouse). It also has HD DVR with 150+ channels and HD DVD player capable of streaming - you can download and watch films over the shared high speed Internet with 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload speeds inside the suite and on the deck.

--The granite topped morning kitchen has dishwasher, garbage disposal, a Keurig coffee maker, and a toaster. Just around the corner you will find a convection counter top oven. a microwave, a refrigerator with ice maker and a washer dryer unit.

--You enter your bedroom through a hallway that is lined with book cases (for fun reads on dozens of topics). There are pocket doors to close off the bedroom from the rest of the suite if desired. The bedroom has an uber-comfortable king-sized pillow top bed, including fluffy pillows and high thread-count sheets. Bedroom and den both have lighted ceiling fans great for summer evenings with the French doors open to the deck.

--The bathroom, brightened by skylights, has a jacuzzi, a granite floor, granite shower walls and a marble topped sink area. You will find a fluffy terry robe for your convenience, as well as a blow-dryer.

--You have your own zoned A/C and heat controls.

The deck is laced with filtered sunlight from the 40-50 yr. old oak trees. It has a stainless Weber Genesis grill with side burner and grilling utensils, a comfortable table and chair set, easy chairs on one end and a small outdoor couch on the other. About one third of the deck is covered.

About the surrounding area and what it has to offer:

--Shopping in historic Roswell is just six miles away… antiques, funky and eclectic boutiques, art galleries, street musicians… and the restaurants are so charming, too.

--Running/walking/biking/fishing at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Center… flat, wide, soft-surface running (one of the most popular running sites in all of Metro-Atlanta)

--Hiking at the Gold Branch of the Chattahoochee River, just one mile away… hilly, gorgeous, serene, spectacular spring and autumn colors

--kayaking/canoeing/rowing on the Chattahoochee River, rentals are just four miles away

--Chattahoochee Nature Center

--Starbucks… four within two miles (also Caribou Coffee, Einstein’s Bagels, Goldstein’s Bagels, Manhattan Bagels)

--Restaurants of all price ranges within two miles

--Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s within two miles

--And of course, all that Atlanta has to offer from history to music, shopping, and the arts is nearby.

About Lisa Livingston

Hi, my husband and I share lots of the same hobbies... we scuba dive, fly a small plane, hike, kayak and swim/bike/run... yes, we are enjoying triathlons in our golden years. :)

Lisa Livingston purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Lisa Livingston chose Head Lake

This is the home where I raised my kids and it has lots of memories for us all. It has been completely remodeled and expanded... adding lots of windows and skylights, vaulting ceilings and so much more. Each of the five bedrooms is either on its own private floor or private wing of the home. And each bedroom has its own private bath and private access to the outdoors. It's truly charming and unique.

What makes this apartment unique

There are so many things to do in Atlanta and especially on the north side of town. This home is nestled on a quiet street. This apartment, in particular, is packed with intimate quaintness and unexpected nooks and crannies... with lots of doors that go our onto your own huge deck. All of it is laced with beautifully filtered light from many oak trees that populate the back and side yard. It is so much better than a hotel...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your very lovely apartment and for your kindness and scheduling flexibility during my father's illness and passing.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
This is our second stay with Dawn and will not be our last. Dawn is a wonderful host and readily available when needed. Our first stay was in the ‘English Cottage’ and the second in the ‘Tree House’. Both units are comfortable and beautifully decorated with a wonderful attention to detail including luxurious linens. Located in a quiet neighborhood in East Cobb it is convenient to restaurants, and shopping areas. We look forward to staying with Dawn whenever we travel to the Atlanta area.....Highly recommend.

The English Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
The English Cottage is wonderful. The Cottage was just what the pictures showed and even more. The Cottage is seclude so that you feel one is far enough away you are in an oasis, yet close to the main road you could reach any destination you wanted. The owners are wonderful people and very helpful should we require anything. Highly recommend the English Cottage.

Private, comfortable, convenient retreat

  • 5 out of 5
I was delighted to come across this lovely home-away-from home in the quiet town of Roswell. No amenity was lacking in the pretty apartment, especially the kitchen.
It was beautifully and creatively furnished, the king bed was very comfortable and the owners were friendly and accommodating. I cannot say enough nice things about this pretty place! My summary is reserve this spot and then rest secure knowing you will be delighted also.

Great Repeat Stay

  • 5 out of 5
I recently completed another stay at this very nice place. Once again the owners went out of their way to make it the most pleasant experience possible. I lacked for nothing and the comfort was excellent.
