About Deborah Johnson

I moved from Paris after 20 years to the Atlanta area to be close to my family after my children went off to universities around the World. I own an apartment in Paris (Paris For A While!) that I renovated and manage as a short-term luxury stay. Enjoying it so much I wanted to do the same with a French Country Cottage in Atlanta. I began looking at Real Estate and after a year and viewing over a hundred properties, I found this perfect cottage. It has been an immense pleasure decorating it in the French-style that I grew accustomed to and love. I live nearby, work as a Chef Instructor (privately and for Sur La Table), as well as have a small business making French Macarons for orders, markets and events. I blog and write, sharing the passion for everything French.

I am sure that you will enjoy this little “French Cottage” as much as I do!

Deborah Johnson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Deborah Johnson chose Buckhead

I love Buckhead, for all it has to offer, it's upscale living, culture, shopping and restaurants. City living at it's best. But, I wanted a story-book cottage with a French or European feel. I found it all with this Cottage and fell in love all over again.

Perfect! Planning to stay again.

  • 5 of 5

As we begin to plan a return visit this autumn, we realized we had not yet reviewed our stay last November.

The French Country Cottage is located in a very nice wooded neighborhood, convenient to Midtown and Buckhead. It felt like home from the moment we pulled in the driveway! We were welcomed with beautiful fresh flowers in the kitchen on our arrival. Everything was exactly as pictured and described in the listing. Very comfortable living areas, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated throughout. Well-equipped kitchen. Very comfortable beds with high quality linens. Nice selection of coffee capsules provided for the Nespresso coffee machine. It is so peaceful having morning coffee at the kitchen table looking out on the beautiful back yard greenery. Deborah was great to work with – very nice from booking through departure. We’re ready to move in permanently! Highly recommended.

So great, I hate to share the info! 😀

  • 5 of 5

As previous reviewers have said, the cottage is absolutely wonderful. Situated perfectly - and to have off-street parking was great. The cottage is spacious and well appointed - having 2 bedrooms + bathrooms was wonderful! 2 couples could stay comfortably without getting on each other's nerves!

Upon inquiring about renting, Deborah got back to us quickly. In addition, all the info we received was in a timely manner including easy and thorough instructions about the use of the cottage. She'd also left a lovely bouquet of roses for our arrival. :)

We SO enjoyed our stay at Deborah's place. We would ABSOLUTELY stay there again. And we hope you give it a try also -- you will not be disappointed.

A Charming House for Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled to Atlanta for our son to attend a school function, I was in search for a comfortable place to stay and came upon this cottage as it had everything we were looking for. Our first take was of the great patio/garden area in the back, very serene and although it was too hot for us to enjoy at the time, we could appreciate what it had to offer. In entering the house, you appreciate the Parisian décor throughout the house, it felt we were very much at home, comfortable and not on vacation. The cottage was impeccably clean and had everything that we needed from a full equipped kitchen to linens for each of the bathrooms. We definitely put the kitchen to use for breakfasts and dinners and was able to find everything that we needed. The beds were extremely comfortable and loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Deborah was very accommodating and made sure our check in was smooth and provided in great detail for check out with no problems. We will certainly be back in Atlanta and will be always check for availability when we come to visit. Thank you for allowing us to stay in the cottage and having my family feel right at home!

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter (26) and I stayed here when we visited my son last Thanksgiving. He has a one room apartment less than a mile away.

This was a charming house right from the get go. As we parked in the back our first view was of the great outdoor patio/dining area. Very welcoming. As we entered the house we were greeted with a nice bouquet of fresh flowers. The house was very clean and had everything we needed (and so much more). The beds were comfortable and it was nice that each bedroom had it's own bath. The Paris theme is carried throughout the house and there is lots of room to spread out.

A few of our local friends (we used to live in Atlanta) dropped in and also loved the place. The kitchen was equipped with about every type dish/glass you could want. Everything we needed to serve full dinners to a fun wine and cheese party.

We enjoyed the neighborhood feel of this home and enjoyed walking around the area many mornings or early evening. Yet within a short distance there is a grocery store, target, coffee shop and some cute little stores. We spent some time in Piedmont Park which was beautiful. We enjoyed a service at Passion City Church - just up the road. We tried our first gun range in Buckhead and I learned I'm a pretty good shot.

Deborah was a gracious but un-intruding hostess and it was a joy to work with her. Will always be checking availability every time we visit Atlanta.
