About Scott H. Thompson

Decatur Native attorney married to Atlanta native attorney, 3 kids, urban gardener with about 750,000 bees (not on this property!) and exactly 26 laying hens (not here either). Youth coach, Rotarian, Mountain Biker, Birder, Geek.

I couldn't have imagined what an incredible business experience this has been for a young lady. Letting her convert a few of our apartments into short-term rentals has given her first-hand business experiences that babysitting just doesn't cover!!

Scott H. Thompson purchased this house in 1995

Why Scott H. Thompson chose Georgia

When i retire, i'm going to build a Frank-Lloyd-Wright ish house on this creek, it's an amazing piece of property

What makes this house unique

Decatur! Don't get me started.....

It's a $5 uber ride to the train station

Great dog walking. Great patio for hanging out.

It's a side-by-side duplex but you only share ONE wall, and it's a hallway. You share no space at all, separate entrance, everything

Late check-ins are never a problem since we'll assign you a door code, and you don't need to meet for your 'key". Early check-in and late checkout depend on both your requests and the preceding/ following guests', then me negotiating something reasonable. If the night before you is not booked (and we won't know until that afternoon!) we'd normally be happy for you to check-in at 8am.

My daughter and I made a last minute trip to Atlanta for a dance audition. Scott and Margot gave us a last minute reservation and the house was perfect for our needs. It was very quiet and the beds were extremely comfortable. House was well stocked and maintained! Loved Margot's notes throughout the home! We would definitely stay here again and recommend highly to our friends and family!

Awesome location for any trip to Atlanta

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what we were looking for when we planed our trip to Atlanta. The location was great, the town of Decatur was an awesome town to hang out in and walk around. Its only 15 min from turner field or downtown. Very clean and an awesome place to stay.

Large, quiet and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in Decatur. The house has a nice kitchen with all the basics for cooking, was house was very clean and spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. The house is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac backing into the woods. We didn't hear a sound other than birds in the trees. Scott was very accommodating with our fluctuating arrival times, stayed briefly to show us some basics of the house, and responded quickly when we had questions. Decatur is a up and coming suburb and we had a great time checking out the restaurants and breweries. Overall the experience was better than we expected.

Perfect Location for our Purpose

  • 5 of 5

I needed to be close to my son's summer camp experience on Emory's campus so this was an ideal location and much less expensive than area hotels. Plus, I had access to way more space, a kitchen, and a washer/dryer. The place is in a cozy little neighborhood. Scott provides good details so you know where to go and how to find things in the house. The kitchen is spacious. Lots of room for people to sleep. It was really a very good experience.
