This big house was built in 1918 by the Southern Railway as an upscale boarding house where Northern railroad execs could bring their families and over-winter at what was then the terminus of the rail-line. So it was built as a quad, which means a few things, each apt has a good layout, not chopped up from a once-primary-residence, it's got high ceilings, leaded glass, plaster walls a foot thick, and it's across the street from the old railyard, which is now part of the Beltline. It's a well-put-together space yet welcomes you to settle in. Plenty of walking-to destinations; walk to MARTA train (either Edgewood or Candler Park). Walk to 6 unique restaurants, 2 coffee shops, a local market, some retail. Get a growler from Candler Park Market and pull up a chair and watch what we call 'chicken TV' in backyard. The beehives are safely enclosed in the chicken run. See what's growing, pull some weeds...
My coop has been on the Urban Coop Tour lots (and lately, too).

Margot (10th grader) helps me with most aspects of this endeavor . 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 1990
It was a huge project, but i wanted the land because of gardening/chickens/bees potential, which, you'll see, worked out great!
It's really INtown. Not out in the burbs.
Funky neighborhood is kinda Austin wierd, that's a good thing.
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".
We really want to maintain our flexible policy on check-in and check-out times. I will do everything I can to accommodate your times. 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... If you want to check out at 5pm and no one is coming that night, no problem!! We'll see as we get closer. But, we do have a space where you can store bags. Otherwise, here is what the HOUSE MANUAL (in your Itinerary) will say-- Check-in will be anytime after 3 pm and Check-out will be anytime before 11am UNLESS YOU REQUEST flexibility with some notice.
FULL DISCLOSURE -- this is my urban working farmlet, so from time to time there will be beehive frames for repair in the yard, or mushroom logs to innoculate on the porch, or wheelbarrows or implements of gardening strewn about. This big, old, demanding mistress requires regular attention from me and my trunkful of tools!!
The inside pictures are exactly "as is". Promise. My farm does not extend to your very clean, orderly, tidy apartment
Rented due to description of having honeybees & chickens outback...cool for kids, & the whole natural living even in a big city thing. But, the outdoor area around house is so cluttered with crap & trash that it lost the whole bohemian lifestyle enjoyment. It was worn but clean inside; but outside needs serious clean up.
Scott was great with communication and the house was cute and clean. We were a group of five, and were pretty squeezed in -- I'd say the house would be more comfortable with fewer people. But we were looking to save money and everything couldn't have gone smoother logistically. Thanks, Scott & Margot!
Scott and Margot were gracious hosts. Their apartment is in an awesome location, and Scott gave us a lot of good information. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
The house is cute and Scott was very nice. The location is great, very convenient right next to lake Claire. Would and will repeat.
We have a family of five and really enjoyed our stay! There was plenty of room for all of us. Scott was very nice and made us feel welcome! Would definitely stay here again!
Great stay at the 1918 apartment/home. It was very clean when we arrived, and Scott was very accessible. Didn't need a thing while we were there! Enjoyed cooking in the cute little kitchen, nice amount of offstreet parking, and just a great space in general with lots of light and fans for keeping cool in the hot Atlanta summer!
