We designed this retreat to be everything you need to escape the hassle of your extended stay here in beautiful north Atlanta (for a month or longer). 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.

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 55" flat-screen hi-def TV with DVD player and 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. :)

Additionally, I am a multi-million dollar REALTOR who works in the North Atlanta and Cobb County area,.,. on multiple occasions, it has been ultra-convenient for our guests who are moving here to also let me help them find their perfect metro-area residence!

Dawn Barrs purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Dawn Barrs chose Metro Atlanta

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. 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. 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.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

As a traveling Radiologic Technologist I have the great privilege of exploring and staying at many places around the country. I have been in some nice and not so nice places before. I must say, hands down this is one of the best if not the best experience I've had. Dawn is completely wonderful and the apartment was wonderful just the same. I had everything I needed and if I needed anything I knew Dawn was only a call away and she was extremely helpful. This is a nice, quiet neighborhood that is close and convenient to everything. I have already recommended this place to many of my friends, family, and co-workers. The next time I am in the Atlanta area for work or play, I definitely plan to return.

One of the best places I've stayed

  • 5 of 5

This is truly one of the best places that I have stayed. The home was set up so nicely and so private. Everything I needed was there for me and if any issues came up Dawn responded right away. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

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.
