1976 Northside Drive NW Atlanta, GA 30318 (near Collier Road)
Located in the historic Buckhead area, known for luxury shopping, beautiful homes, and Southern charm, “The Lustron” is the most unique lodging in all of Atlanta. Part of a famous housing movement of the 1950s, every single piece of material used to assemble this treasure is made of metal. If you want to stay in a building sought out by history buffs and architects alike, keep reading, checking out the photos, and getting psyched for your visit!
I enjoyed my brief stay in this little bungalow. It is an adorable kit house from the 1950's and the owner had done an excellent job keeping it in nice shape. Good bedding, good towels, good pillows. Only suggestion is that it was dark when I arrived and there were no motion detector lights. Thanks!
What a charming place to stay in Atlanta! I highly recommend staying here during your visit. The place is charming, a perfect size for my party, and very clean. Sarah Kathryn, the owner, makes it so easy to stay here and was such a pleasure to talk to. I would recommend to any of my friends.
What a fabulous location! We arrive and were right at home. Sarah Kathryn, the owner, was very helpful and accomodating. The bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms were all clean and ready for us when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in the city!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this cozy home in Atlanta. I stayed for a few days, and this was the perfect location in the city. The owner, Sarah Kathryn, was so easy to communicate with and so accommodating. This home was well decorated, cozy, and felt like home. I will definitely be staying here again, when I'm back in the Atlanta area. I would recommend this place to a friend for sure.
Chose this location to be close to my daughter's apartment on Collier Street. Great neighborhood, walked to my daughter's and walked to Tanyard Creek Park several times using pedestrian crosswalks and sidewalks. Beautiful location and landscaped very nice. House was musty and missing bathroom door which was broken, curtain was used in place of a door. Refrigerator was filthy which we brought to the owner's attention. She checked it out, apologized and compensated us for the issue but did not clean it. Parking was tight but we were able to deal with it. Owner responded to my late evening text when we arrived and answered my home access and parking questions - which we appreciated. Basically a great neighborhood location but house cleanliness was below average.
Super cute cottage that has all the conveniences of home! Fully functional kitchen, private parking, TV, W/D, etc. Close to all destinations in Atlanta plus great food and shopping. Owner was extremely accommodating during our stay and even made entertainment suggestions! Highly recommend and plan to stay again!
Rustic vintage, but in the most fun way. Good communication with owner. Really great bedding, towels, and decor!
This is the perfect place for a long stay. The host is always there when you need her. The house feels like home! Great location, everything you need is close by. I recommend this house to everyone!
we rented this property for a long 3 week stay to set up and attend a trade show in Atlanta. Sarah, the owner was very responsive and easy to communicate with. The bungalow is old but tastefully dated and decorated to match the period in which the house was built which is what gives it it's charm and designation as a historical landmark. Sarah takes pride in that and has done a great job of maintaining the integrity of it's unique character. It was very clean! The wifi was fine, nice patio areas to relax in front and back of house, ample parking. super convenient location to many areas of Atlanta (just a few exits from downtown). It is set back on a busy street and although a very safe neighborhood, nothing to walk to for food and drink. It fit our needs perfectly. we would recommend this property.
Charming has some issues but have to remember this is an older home on a very very busy and loud street. Owner very nice and personable
I stayed in this house for an internship with a roommate for two months where I commuted to downtown Atlanta each day and it was perfect! 12-15 minute commute, couldn't have worked out better. The location was more than awesome, easy uber ride to Buckhead and anywhere else on the weekends. The Lustron is awesome, it was decorated adorably and felt very homey! There was everything in there that we could have needed. The side porch was a bonus, loved siting outside and enjoying the oddly warm Atlanta winter. Even with someone staying in the loft above the garage in the back of the driveway, there was more than enough room for parking. Only downsides: The house is on a busy road right off of I-75, so road noise can be loud during the day and at night and did wake me up once or twice. Also, due to the unique metal style/composition of the house, most of the interior doors are pocket (sliding) doors which can fall off their tracks and become difficult to maneuver. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I think it was an awesome place to stay long term, but I could also see this house being perfect for a fun weekend in Atlanta. Sarah Kathryn was so welcoming and helpful, she really made this place special. Would definitely come back!
I had a wonderful 4 month stay at this Carriage House in Buckhead. It was the perfect spot for me to commute to my internship at Westminster Schools. The yard was well maintained and the landlord (Sarah) was responsive to all issues. I had a lot of lightbulbs burn out all at once and the ceiling was too tall for me to reach. I highly recommend this adorable rental!
The house location was perfect for our downtown seminar. We enjoyed the books in the house about the history of the home as it is all made of metal. Sarah was great to work with, accessible and made sure we had every thing we needed when we got there.
My family and I had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful little house in September. My two daughters absolutley loved it - the house is a historic "Lustron" and it has metal walls - and the neighborhood was fantastic. It's cute and very well decorated, and the owner has added many personal touches that make it feel like a special home. She also went out of her way to make sure we got settled and were well taken care of. I was in town on business and needed a good location - it was very centrally located to everything in Atlanta. We all wished we had more time to stay. We will be back next time we're in town!
Loved my time at the Lustron! Sarah Kathryn was so very accommodating as a hostess and has done an excellent job creating a comfortable, attractive 1950's oasis in the heart of Atlanta. Loved the side porch for coffee in the morning and will miss the the Lustron and its charm, karma and convenience!!!
Fabulous location. The house is quaint but needs to be updated. New bath sink and clean out the drawers to make it look neater, get the doors to close and put curtains on the main bedroom window. The neighbor can see right in. Good for the price. Regards, George I I
We had an amazing three-month stay in this architectural landmark - a 1949 all-metal house known as a Lustron. It has been restored so well, and is chic and totally comfortable and user-friendly. The owner is incredibly generous and accommodating, intent on her guests having a great stay. The location is ideal - a few minutes from some of Atlanta's best restaurants, walking distance from banks and a grocery story, and a four minute drive from downtown while also just a hop skip and a jump from Buckhead. We were making a film while in town, and staying in a hotel after working long hours wouldn't have been nearly as worthwhile as having this house to come home to. I was nervous about what it would feel like living in a metal house, but I shouldn't have been. It's a perfect cozy retreat. No negatives whatsoever.
Fun and unique home of the past with several authentic mid-century touches and details -- great for architectural and design enthusiasts! Charming decor and perfect dimensions for my needs. Excellent in-town location with easy accessibility to highways.
I rented this lovely property to spend Thanksgiving holiday with family. The property is gorgeous and perfectly decorated to period. We did not have any amenities missing. Can't say enough about the location... everything is extremely close and easy access to anything from shopping to tourist venues in the Atlanta area. Sarah was attentive and a terrific host checking periodically with me to ensure we did not need anything during our stay. Would highly recommend this property for any stay in the area. I will definitely be staying here in my future travels to Atlanta.
