Located at 917 Piedmont Avenue, 30309, on the most beautiful street in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, our home sits above the street on the corner of Piedmont and 8th Street with sweeping views of the Midtown skyline. It is a meticulously restored and elegantly furnished Victorian with 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. In addition, there is a carriage house that rents separately, and a two-car garage for off-street parking.
The main house has a large relaxing front porch with a comfortable furniture grouping, The first floor contains a welcoming central foyer with grand chandelier, a living room with baby grand piano and 60' flat screen TV, a full-size dining room that seats 10 with another gorgeous chandelier and fireplace, a full library with a Murphy bed that allows this room to be turned into another bedroom on the main level for those who need easy access, a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including a side-by-side double refrigerator with ice and water in the door; a professional 4-burner gas stove; a heavy duty dishwasher and a Keurig coffeemaker with supplies provided for your use during your stay, a 1/2 bath/ powder room with exposed brick wall, and a mudroom for shoes/boots, coats when entering the home as well as extra storage. Double glass doors open to a private porch and large back yard that is completely fence for privacy and professionally landscaped around a 3-tier marble fountain. There are 8 original coal fireplaces throughout the home, all restored .
Upstairs there is a central hall with a striking chandelier, three large bedrooms, two with king beds and one with a queen bed, a sitting room with a double-size sleep sofa, and three full baths. The sitting room is attached to the master and has no doors so it is not totally private; however, a small hallway separates it from the master bedroom and bath. It is comfortable for one adult or two children though 2 adults can use it. The master bath is marble throughout with double sinks, a glass stand alone shower, and jetted tub. There are 50" flat screen TVs in every bedroom. WiFi is provided as are premium TV channels. The house can accommodate 9-10 based on double occupancy.
The carriage house was built three years ago and is a one-bedroom studio with partial kitchen, dining area, and king bed plus a separate full bath. It can accommodate 2 adults based on double occupancy. It is open and bright and has a more contemporary decor. It rents for $250/night if rented alone or $200/night in conjunction with the main house.
Under the carriage house is a two-car garage, a valuable commodity in this area of town where parking is scarce and towing strictly enforced. One or both spaces in the garage are included with either the main house or the carriage house rental.
We can also help you obtain daily maid service, a personal chef, meal service, catering, concierge, shopper, and driver. Please let us know what you desire.
Several movie studios have filmed scenes inside our home, and several well-known stars have stayed there. The movie/TV industry is a big business in Atlanta, with filming frequently taking place around town.
The house is also available for events. To use it for events, there is a separate fee in addition to the nightly rental or a daily rate if only renting it for the event.
Staying at this beautiful southern home with so much charm was the perfect place to welcome friends and family to Atlanta. The home is spacious and location is perfect in walking distance to great coffee shops and restaurants. The gracious old southern home is full of beautiful treasures and one feels they are staying in a lovely B & B rather than a rental home. We had a wonderful weekend and highly recommend this beautiful home.
Great location. Comfortable and the house lends itself to catch up with your friends. Hope to come back soon.
The house was amazing, Victorian furnishings and all. The proximity to things in midtown was second to none, the park, botanical gardens and plenty of great restaurants. Karen was very helpful and attentive to all of our needs/questions/etc. Downtown was walkable but easier to take a short Uber or Lyft. I would absolutely recommend this charming property and I hope we get to return sooner than later!! :)
The home was very accommodating, fully furnished and conveniently located centrally to all activities and entertainment. I would have given it 5 stars but the housekeeper could do a better job with the housekeeping and exterminating. The ants are bad in the kitchen. But overall it is a great place to stay.
It was a Great location!
Our family celebrated my parent's 50th anniversary here. What a special long weekend! The house is elegant, unique, with so many thoughtful touches and space for a large family (8 adults and 1 infant). We especially loved sitting outside on the porch, chatting, listening to the fountain and looking at the trees and skyline. It's residential yet everything in midtown is so convenient. We walked to Piedmont Park everyday. This is a wonderful property that will leave you with great memories of Atlanta.
Our family truly enjoyed the stay at this lovely midtown home! There was room for all of us to be together and relax. We especially loved the front porch and the library, where many chess battles took place! Karen was wonderful to work with and made so many special accommodations for us during our stay there. This was a very memorable time for our family in this beautiful home!
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that there were issues with 3 of the bathrooms. No hot water in one, a leak in the other that came through the downstairs ceiling and a faucet that came off in another a spray water all over. Other than that, the place was wonderful. I loved the front porch and the back yard with the fountain. Would rent again if the bathroom issues are addressed. Perfect location!
This property was absolutely gorgeous. Excellent location! Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, etc!! We will definitely be back!!!
This is a beautiful home and it was perfect for our family gathering. We especially loved all of the different areas, inside and out, to hang out together. Thanks, Karen
This was the perfect house for my wedding weekend. Plenty of space, beautiful decor and walking distance to so many restaurants and of course piedmont park. We've already talked about wanting to rent again in the future!
We have stayed at this property numerous time over the past few years and it is always wonderful. The house is amazing and we love the area!!
My family and I were in town for my son's GATech graduation. Karen's house was the perfect place for us. We were close to campus and many of the activities that we planned for the weekend. The house was roomy enough for 9 of us and a great place to gather with additional family that came in town for the weekend. Karen made check in and check out very easy and even accommodated us when we arrived in town early on check in day.
We were in town for the Sweetwater 420 Music fest. The home is in a perfect location and worked for our group great. Loved the front porch. We lived like Kings for three days.
Couldn't have had a better experience, our family enjoyed the stay using both the main house and the carriage house. We walked to local restaurants and took all of the kids to the park. The owners are so hospitable and let us check in early after our flight plans changed. We highly recommend this property, worth every penny!!
Awesome house and location!!
We had the pleasure of staying here over the New Years weekend with a few friends. It was the perfect location that had easy access to getting around the city with plenty to do within walking distance. For anyone that is looking to stay in one place with a large number of people this is the place for you! Thanks
I rented this house my wedding weekend to use as a place to get ready near the venue and it was the perfect setting for the occasion. I was so blown away by the character of the home that my fiance and I decided to do our first look there in the main foyer before heading to the ceremony. It is in a great location and we did not have any difficulty finding a parking spot near the home on 8th Street. I would highly recommend renting this house.
Would recommend this place to anyone looking to travel with a group. It is incredibly spacious and everything flows well for a larger group.
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. The house was fabulous and location could not have been more convenient.
My family and I traveled to Atlanta for a wedding and we were thrilled to stay in this beautiful home. Everything was perfect - from the comfortable beds to the spacious (and lovely) rooms. Pictures don't do it justice! Karen was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. We had a wonderful time and hope to stay here again during a future trip to Atlanta.
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful historic home. The location was perfect and within walking distance of restaurants and entertainment. Kitchen had everything you could need and more. By far the courtyard and front porch were our favorite place to relax. We certainly felt like royalty while we were there, and hope to stay again soon.
This house was everything we wanted from our experience in Atlanta. There were 7 of us who stayed there, as we were in town for a wedding. There was plenty of space for all of us and we weren't stepping all over each other. The guys had a great time playing chess in the den! So close to great restaurants and we enjoying running through Peidmont Park. I would love to stay here again if I visit Atalanta sometime soon :)
Stayed in mid August 2015. House is a classic southern home. Having the garage was very handy. Great location, 5 minutes drive to downtown, 15-20 to Buckhead. Lots to do within a short walk. They were pouring concrete in the back while there so a little inconvenient but will be beautiful back yard when done. Something cool sitting about on the large front porch during a thunderstorm. Lots of room for everyone, clean and great contact and follow up with Karen,and welcome book thorough. A+ property and fairly priced for what you get. Highly recommended.
A very comfortable stay for two couples. The Master suite is a good bit more spacious and luxurious than the second and third bedrooms which share a hall bath. The house is beautifully furnished and the front porch is a great spot for morning coffee and happy hour wine. Easy walk to nearby restaurants. We walked to a concert at the Botanical Gardens too. Karen was a pleasure and very accommodating.
We had a guys weekend in Atlanta and rented this amazing house and the carriage house. It is extremely spacious and beautifully decorated. There was more than enough room for all of us. It is centrally located, walkable to all the restaurants, bars, and sights in Midtown. If we needed to drive to other areas outside of downtown we could and not worry about parking as the house also has a 2 car garage. Karen was extremely welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommend to those coming to Atlanta and want to stay in a beautiful house in the downtown area walkable to everything!
This is a beautiful house in a wonderful neighborhood. There was zero to worry about parking because the property had a two car garage. The area is very pedestrian friendly. The morning walks were scenic with the other wonderful homes and park near by. It was nice to have so many eating options to walk to. There were many other options that were short driving distances. The home had a welcome book with things to do and places to eat if we didn't come prepared for the weekend. There were four of us and the spacing was great. I often pick a 'favorite' part of the house, however the entire house was my favorite. The front patio space was even more inviting when we showed up, more so than the photo. The home was super clean and had everything we thought we needed and what we didn't think we needed. The host was amazing to work with when securing the property and checking with us during the stay. I look forward to making another trip to this home.
What an awesome home to stay in!!! This home is beautiful, big, clean. The area is very nice and the owners are wonderful people!! This is the second time we've stayed here and we plan on staying at this property twice each year as long as they will have us. Thank you for always making us feel so welcome and comfortable.
House is welcoming, spacious and owners responsive. Our favorite spot is the front porch - even on a hot day there was a beautiful breeze and it was a great gathering place. Walk-ability is terrific - we found good restaurants, a good nail salon and beautiful Piedmont park minutes away. When we arrived the garage door opener was missing and it was delivered later that evening. When the garage door broke the owners had it repaired within hours. The two king bedrooms upstairs are connected by a sitting room without doors which is good to know if privacy is a priority. Also, two full baths but only one hairdryer so if you have a house of women who are dressing for evenings out bring your own!
I recently rented this house for my wedding. We had a very small (30 people) ceremony in the backyard followed by a cocktail reception in the home. It was absolutely gorgeous. Everyone remarked about the beauty of the home. The pictures are spot on. Everything is lovely! The home owners were also very flexible and easy to work with. We were under a lot of pressure and stress at the time and they helped us make sure the day was perfect. We also put our parents and siblings in the house for the weekend. They loved it, especially the master suite upstairs! I highly recommend this property for a special event or weekend getaway. One other note: the house is located within walking distance to midtown. Lots of bars, restaurants and happenings are in the area. It's a convenient location, particularly if you don't have a car. The guest house in the backyard is also nice because it has a kitchenette. So there's some privacy there if you need it. Enjoy!
House is in great location!!! Clean great porch!!
I normally just right short sweet nice reviews....BUT this home FAR exceeded my expectations! Pictures don't do this home justice. Because of how IMPRESSED I was, I must let everyone know too in a very detailed description! I chose this home due to Karen being so wonderful & helpful & also the location was AWESOME! have stayed in many rental homes, hotels, cabins etc...But this home is AMAZING! Karen was very informative and helpful making this trip so much easier. I have to say right when I walked into her beautiful home it was love at first sight! When you enter the house from the garage you're greeted with a must have mudroom for guests shoes & hang your jacket. Then I took just a few steps forward and was completely amazed by quality and comfort of all the furnishings...it was UNBELIEVABLE! All the cookware was top of the line , most beautiful dishes/silverware, etc...& if that wasn't enough every bedroom has to die for sheets, and cloud 9 bed & pillows to match! I never slept so good! All the applicances are stainless steel and loved using every single one of them. I loved waking up every morning walk down that beautiful staircase to the kitchen before my kids woke up and just sit down and enjoy my coffee and think to myself what an awesome decision I made choosing this home!! All the detailed little things you would forget to bring, is already here...including laundry detergent, fabric softner (which made my families clothes smell SO GOOD)...You name it, this home has it!!! She thought of EVERYTHING! All you need to bring is your toothbrush and a change of clothes! This home is in the most beautiful location. The front porch view of downtown was nothing short of breath taking! Without a doubt will be staying here again! Thank you Karen for allowing us to stay in your home. And even though it was for a weekend....walking down the grand staircase made us feel like royalty!!!
Absolutely love it... This place is even better in person. The owner is a pleasure to work with and the location is ideal.
Upon our arrival this home was very impressive, quite beautiful. Clearly this was a grand home in the history of Atlanta and the owner has decorated it perfectly. We have rented many homes all over the country from Hawaii to the Hamptons and so there are things you appreciate, nice toilet paper and tissues, clean, new linens and nice towels, comfortable beds and enough furniture/seating to accommodate the amount of people that are able to stay. This home had all of those comforts and it was all perfectly decorated to match the age of the home. The owners were also very accommodating and easy to communicate with. Also having use of the guest house made this home very comfortable for 2 families. However, I was concerned about cleanliness when I found dirty dishes in the drawer of an upstairs bedroom while unpacking. Then we discovered that the same upstairs bedroom also had cockroaches. First we saw a dead one in the closet, then the next day we saw one running on the floor of the same room, then another one in the dresser drawer and then one in our luggage. When we got home we had to quarantine our baggage and clothing. I'm from Colorado, we do not have roaches so this is just too much for me and I would not be able to stay in this home again just for this reason. To be fair we only saw the roaches in one upstairs bedroom. I am not an expert but when you see one, there are usually many. If you are from an area of the country where roaches are common this probably wouldn't bother you, but for us it was alarming and disruptive to our stay.
Everything about this house is what we were looking for. This amazing house is perfectly located in the best part of Atlanta. Its Large, beautifully furnished and very clean. Karen and her family were a joy to be around when they needed to be there and were always an instant text or call away. We will be coming back again when our plans bring us to Atlanta
We rented this home for our annual company Christmas party and it was beyond perfect! Not only was the house amazing, Karen was more than accommodating when the caterer wanted to look at the property ahead of time, that we asked to have third party entertainment brought in and furniture moved and only rent the home for one day. If you are looking for a beautiful atmosphere for an event to go off without a hitch, look no further- this is it!
This was my very first stay in Atlanta and I was so lucky to rent this home. I worried about locations and was happy to find this home is beyong perfectly located, walking distance to coffee shop and places to eat. The home itself is very pretty and in a quiet location. Owner was available when needed, although we did not need assistance from her. Overall I would love to stay again and recommend it to friends and family. Thank you again for letting us use your home ( my daughter did great on her audition for idol ).
The home is gorgeous and well kept. We spent a lot of time in the outdoor space which is also lovely. Only wish we could have stayed longer.
The Royal is an absolutely stunning home. Classic design, yet very modern amenities. Nestled in popular midtown area of Atlanta, this home is in a fantastic location. Close enough to walk to many amazing restaurants, parks, etc., just a short drive from the major attractions (ie acquarium, zoo, etc). The owner, Karen, was phenomenal to work with. We will definitely be staying at the Royal for our next visit to Atlanta. Oh, forgot to mention...parking is a premium in this area...the home has a detached 2 car garage for guest's use!!!!
Our crew came in for the football game and were lucky enough to book Karen's property. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience we all had. Karen's communication throughout the entire process was fantastic and the house was even better. Upon arrival we had very good instructions and were amazed at just how awesome the house truly is. The pictures online are great however they simply do not depict what a beautiful place it truly is. They have done a great job of keeping its vintage look and feel while also providing a spotless, inviting and comfortable place to stay. There are many great restaurants and bars within walking distance and we all felt very safe walking the streets late at night. By the end of the trip everyone joked about just moving in. If you are looking for a cool place to stay and an awesome experience you can't go wrong. A huge THANKS to Karen for providing us New Orleans crew a wonderful experience in spite of us losing the game!! HAHA We can't wait to come stay with you again!
We stayed two nights and hosted an excellent rehearsal party at the the house!! The house was beautiful, clean, and very well maintained. It exceeded our expectations and the owners were great! Highly recommend!!
Our company took 7 people to a trade show in Atlanta. This house worked perfectly for our week stay. Close to everything and so much more fun and relaxing than a small hotel room! The garage for parking was definitely a plus.
We rented the home for a corporate event to host our partners from around the world. The home was absolutely perfect! The home is absolutely beautiful and decorated with perfection. It was large enough to house 6 of our staff comfortably and the kitchen was well equipped with most everything we required. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the home was clean. We hosted about 40 clients and all commented on how beautiful the home was. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. The home is easy to get to and very close to the city, Piedmont Park, etc. We would love to stay here again!
