Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Head Lake - Charming suburban retreat

Open-concept full-furnished 1-bdrm apt. w/carport in quiet suburb, extended-stay

We designed this retreat to be everything you need to escape for a few months or longer (no daily or weekly rentals). Whether you are on a long business trip, internship, house-hunting, etc., this is a charming and convenient location for staying the northern part of Atlanta. (This is available for one person only and allows for only one car.)

About the apartment:

Paint, carpet, heat & air, and appliances are all new and fresh. Open-concept den and kitchen have eight sunny windows, while the king-sized bedroom has four windows.

This is a really charmingly private 850-sq.-ft. suburban retreat, nestled discreetly on the terrace level (8.5' ceilings) of a large home in the quiet suburbs of northern Atlanta (Roswell). In addition to a comfortable den and comfortable king-sized bedroom with uber-comfortable pillow-top mattress, it ultra-modern new kitchen with marble countertops, and stainless appliances ... and a washer/dryer. It has double French doors opening to a private tree-draped carport/patio that is really private. It has a travertine shower and spa-like master bath and also has a half bath. There are six closets. It has its own private entrance and separate HVAC controls.

It also has:

--A 48" flat-screen hi-def TV with DVD player and cull Comcast Xfinity (150+ channels).

--High speed Internet with 50 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload speeds inside the suite and on the deck (shared with other members of the household).

--All appliances are full-sized and, of course, there is a Keurig coffee maker and toaster.

--The bedroom and den both have lighted ceiling fans great for summer evenings with the French doors open to the fresh outdoors.

--It has a stainless Weber grill and chair/table set.

--no one lives above your apartment so it is uber quiet and even more private!

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.

--bike and walk/jogging trails are at the end of the street and go for miles and miles in each direction.

--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.

NOTE: This is single-family home and, because of this, should you need it, you have unfettered access to the core portions of the main home... but you control the deadbolt that separates your space from the upper levels. This is a very, very quiet home... children are grown and gone and there are not pets.

About Dawn Barrs

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. :)

Dawn Barrs purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Dawn Barrs 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 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 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 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 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.
