Our beautiful guesthouse is located just an hour west of downtown Atlanta within our 57 acre equestrian farm (THE WELCOME FARM).
THE HOUSE HAS TWO LEVELS - SLEEPS 6 OR 8 (SEE INFO BELOW) and sits across a small creek in a wonderful quiet area, surrounded by shady trees and the beauty of nature. It's a real treat and the perfect port for your family and holiday vacation, romantic getaway, family re-union and even business people. The front and back porch area provide splendid views of the surrounding nature. The fresh and cozy furnishings add to the atmosphere of rest and relaxation. You will love the quiet privacy of this vacation home!
The main floor (sleeps 6) of the house is designed in an open living concept with a very spacious living/kitchen/dining area including an open fireplace. On the same floor you will find the large master bedroom with a luxury en-suite bathroom including dual sinks, shower and a large garden jet tub. Two queen bedrooms with a shared full bathroom complete this level.The lower level floor can be booked for an additional cost and offers a 4th bedroom (sleeps 2), another large/full bathroom and a roomy entertaining area with TV and kitchenette (see rates for details).
You will have access to a beautiful year round open salt-water pool, which is located only a short walk across the creek at the main house. A jump from the diving board or just a refreshing swim will help you replenish after a long day at work. Or trot on by the barn and take a riding lesson to free your mind, body and soul!Sometimes a good night out is a good night in. Carrollton has some of the best restaurants around but dining out all the time can be costly. The full kitchen offers you an alternative. Stock the fridge with your favorite food and drink and enjoy an evening to yourself. Better yet! Enjoy a fabulous dinner and don't worry about what to do with left overs. Bring them back here to your house for later.
Book a riding lesson on one of our beautiful horses or take a walk or jog across our scenic trails, which are located behind the barn.
Downtown Atlanta, Georgia walkable attractions loop is where you can see the world of coca-cola, Georgia aquarium, inside CNN Atlanta and imagine it! The children's museum of Atlanta, all circling centennial Olympic park. Atlanta attractions will help you get back to nature at zoo Atlanta, fern bank museum of natural history and stone mountain park. Find famous atlantans at the martin Luther king, Jr. National historic site, Margaret Mitchell house and jimmy carter library & museum. Georgia's “little grand canyon” is a testament to the power of man's influence on the land. Massive gullies as deep as 150 feet were caused simply by poor farming practices during the 1800s, yet today they make some of the prettiest photographs within the state. It's located just 90 minutes from the guest house south of Columbus.
We have just left this amazing farmhouse after a 4 night stay. We are a family of five and have very young children. The farmhouse was perfect. Katharina and Klaus were so welcoming and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us and when we arrived the house was set up with fresh flowers and fresh fruit. The house has everything we needed and is in such a beautiful relaxing setting. We took a day trip to Atlanta to visit the aquarium and it was a very easy drive. I would highly recommend this farmhouse. My children didn't want to leave and are saying they miss the house already!
Although me and the family did not spend a lot of time at the rental house; the service was great. Mrs. Kathy came by and introduced herself to the family and offered the kids a fun time in their Pool. The kids did have a chance to swim and of course play with Buddy(Mrs. Kathy's dog). The Horses and Donkey were great to see up close. And finally getting away from the city life was excellent. So if you and your family decides to get away for a week or so; The Perfect Atlanta Guesthouse is ThE wAy To Go. Knight Family
From the moment we opened the doors, we fell in love with The Welcome Farm! The house is imacculate and there was enough room to house our troop of 7. The grounds are also well kept and beautiful. Our children had more than enough space to run and play, there is an outdoor deck and grill plus a lower level patio, both are furnished nicely. The home was quite comfy; a home away from home for us. But most memerable of all was Katherina's warmth and kindness, she was so very accommodating, showing care and concern at every turn without ever infringing on our privacy! The Welcome Farm is quite appropriately named :)
My boyfriend and I stayed over Valentine's Day weekend and were welcomed by Katharina when we arrived. And since it was Valentine's Day, she had taken the time to provide fresh flowers, chocholates and a Valentine balloon which we are saving as a keepsake. The house was immaculate and quiet which is just what we were looking for. There are plenty of things to do around the area including zip lining and visiting nearby small towns. Plus, there is plenty of rolling hills to wander about for a walk and enjoy all the four legged friends on the property. If you visit the atalanta Georgia area and don't mind an hours drive from atlanta to stay here, The Welcome Farm is the place to be! All my thanks and best wishes to Katharina and her family. We hope to see you soon!
Why would someone need to rent a guesthouse that is only 16 miles from their home? Well, a unique situation required me to think outside the box. My daughter and her husband live in australia and were coming back to the us for Christmas. They were bringing their 3-month-old daughter, who would be making her Georgia debut and lots of people wanted to meet her for the first time. I knew my neighbors would not be happy with all the traffic and I wanted to find a place where my granddaughter could stay and people could just come to her. I was almost in panic mode when I saw a story about this guesthouse. I left a message for the owner, Katharina, and she promptly called me back. Accommodating and outstanding are the best words I can use to describe the help I received from Katharina. From understanding about a flight delay that changed the day we would first need the guesthouse to providing a baby bed and bath tub (she's a mother too and understands these things), to allowing our dog to stay with us instead of having to board him, Katharina was always trying to find ways to help make our stay even better. The house was clean and the layout is great too with plenty of space in every room. And I loved the kitchen because I like to cook for people myself instead of ordering from a restaurant. The entire property is just beautiful and so peaceful. And if you have any horse lovers in your family (I have one who is 13-years-old!) they can walk over a little bridge and spend some time with the horses that are boarded there. So whether you need to find a place where relatives can stay during a visit or special event, such as a wedding, or you just need somewhere to have a relaxing vacation with your family, I would highly recommend that you call Katharina now and let her help you plan the perfect stay at her guesthouse. My husband and I are already talking about renting this place again when our granddaughter (and her parents) come back to see us for Christmas this year!
My family and I stayed here for a week during New Years. We had a wonderful time staying in your vacation rental. The house was so comfortable for all of us. It was convenient to grocery stores and shopping. We enjoyed eating at local places such as American Pie Pizzeria, Little Hawaiian and Max & Henry’s. The hosts were so helpful, thoughtful and gracious. We definitely recommend your guest home rental. Thank you again for a wonderful New Years family experience.
Welcome Farm is aptly named. we arrived for our anniversary celebration and were greeted with fresh flowers, fruit and other thoughtful touches from Katerina which made us feel very much at home. The house is beautifully appointed with every amenity you could wish for and more , while being perfectly situated within easy reach of restaurants, shops and local attractions. The surroundings are peaceful and tranquil with bucolic views from the front porch. We found this to be the perfect place for a romantic weekend!
This is the place if you love a peaceful and quiet environonment as a former corporate executive for many years and having to stay in the most plush locations in the world, I can say that it is the perfect house to be for relaxing after a long day of training or arguing in the board room... The house is spotless,cozy,well decorated,spacious,and most importantly,well taken care off by Katarina an Klaus. Go there, Enjoy It !!!
Wir lieben dieses Anwesen und würden immer wieder kommen. Die Besitzer kümmern sich in jeder freien Minute um Ihre Gäste und geben einem das Gefühl von Geborgenheit als Teil einer großen Familie. Dazu gehören alle großen und kleinen Tiere, die die Farm so lebendig machen und jederzeit für eine kleine Auszeit zum Kuscheln da sind. Für Deutsche ist vor allem die Weitläufigkeit, Luftigkeit und schiere Größe beeindruckend. Vielen Dank an die wunderschönen Zeiten auf diesem wunderbaren Fleck Erde.
We had a blast! The homeowner is so very sweet! The place is just lovely - so clean and nicely appointed. The kitchen is a dream! Have coffee on the front porch and grill out on the back deck. We enjoyed the pool too! Nice place to get away from it all. Family game and movie nights were great too - lots of movies and games to choose from!
We absolutely love this beautiful home located in the rolling hills of West Georgia. The home is spacious, beautifully appointed and clean as a whistle! It is exactly as the pictures on their website.. And outdoors, you are literally surrounded with beautiful pastoral scenes and gorgeous horses. This place is secluded and serene. Yet, you are only an hour from all the fun in Atlanta and also only an hour from beautiful Callaway Gardens.. Also, there are golf courses, riding trails, movies, great places to eat and things to do nearby. For us, the trip was made even more perfect as we brought our horses with us! They were treated like royalty. Best of all is our host and hostess! They are there whenever you need them and willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have a great time. Don't miss out on this wonderful experience. You won't regret it.
This guest house offers all amenities you could even imagine. We stayed during our honeymoon and enjoyed not only the comfort of the house but even more the quietness and beauty of the landscape. Welcomed by the horses every morning and a beautiful view from the porch. The house reflects Katharina´s lovely hospitality as well as the family´s affinity for the farm and their guests. We were offered a lots of recommendations for our day trips and shopping activities. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to do all of them. We would love to come back to this beautiful place asap and can only recommend it to everybody who wants to enjoy a beautiful time together during their holidays!
What a beautiful home ! This home was perfect to accommodate my family & I for our vacation .. The owner were pleasant and was available to answer any questions or concerns we had ..My children loved waking up to see the horses and was able to feed them.. will defiantly be booking again in the near future
Spacious and well maintained guesthouse with everything you need. Clean and cosy. Comes with a fireplace, 3 bathrooms and an outside roofed sitting place.
This was our first stay at the Welcome Farm. We love the location. We love the Guesthouse. And we love Katharina and Klaus and their Kids. Wonderful.
Thanks Katharina and Klaus! We loved this place. We came over from England and the Welcome Guest house was everything we hoped it would be. Set in lush green surroundings you're constantly serenaded by the crickets. Our kids loved playing in the swimming pool with William and Sam (the host children) while my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds flying around. Atlanta is only 45 minutes away and there are loads of things to do in the area. Katharina and Klaus make you feel very welcome and if we're ever in the area again, we'll certainly be coming back.
The Welcome Farm is just that, a welcoming house with lovely owners and sweet animals. I stayed here with my husband, 2 yr old son and my parents. We enjoyed our days walking the grounds, playing with the dogs, feeding the horses and our evenings on the front porch sipping wine. Katharina was gracious and accommodating. We hope to be back! Perfect little get away! Thank you!
Great place, very spacious and open. Very relaxing setting. Owners were accommodating, always responsive, friendly and very helpful. The weather didn’t cooperate for most of the the stay but we all had fun playing board games and the kids really enjoyed the horseback lessons that the owners squeezed in on our last day.
A wonderful house in a great location. It's spacious and very modern. Eyerthing was perfect. We will come back.
The house is simply beautiful. The interior is tastefully furnitured, the beds are the most cozy and comfortable ones we have ever slept in and everything is neat and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped and up to date. When you open the door to that house you not only feel at home immediately, you will moreover feel the love and heart the owner put into everything, the guesthouse as well as the estate on the whole. The lawn on the whole property is cut constantly, the stables and the arena are in very good condition and so are the horses. You can tell at once that they are carefully looked after. Our children, 5 and 7 took their first riding lessons on a daily basis there for 5 days and their "achievements" in such a short time were stunning. They just loved the place, the horses and the riding lessons so much, they did not really want to leave. So, we can only highly recommend a stay at the guesthouse: The owner are outstanding hosts and very open and wonderful people. The riding teacher is calm, encouraging and good to and with the horses. You can tell, that she enjoyed the riding lessons just as much as our kids. The horses themselves are absolutely careful with beginners and we at no point were worried about anything.
Perfect location - located on the same property as my daughter’s horse barn - so I could watch her ride and reconnect with her horse, Rico, and her corgi, Lucy. Beautiful guest house with huge great room, large, open kitchen, well stocked with everyt kind of equipment we could possibly want. Bedrooms were large, bed was very comfortable, heating was easy to regulate. We toured Callaway Gardens and the infantry museum at Ft. Benning, plus walked on the greenway in Carrollton. Easy drive back to Atlanta for flight home.
