After a lot of research and because I liked the name (!) I booked Tea Cakes on the internet for our first ever B&B experience for the first 4 nights of our 15 day trip to Georgia at the end of May 2008.
It looked charming on the website and we weren’t disappointed. Friendly emails were sent before our arrival ensuring we knew how to get there.
It’s a beautiful, well furnished and spotless property located on a quiet, quaint street.
The owner, Karcheik is welcoming, genuinely friendly and knowledgable and you’re encouraged to feel at home. We did! She spent time printing maps, explaining the MARTA and recommended areas to eat which we wouldn’t have discovered on our own (even with the use of our Frommers Guide).
We’d collected a hire car at the airport, but we didn’t need it whilst at Tea Cakes , & left it parked on the drive. With the MARTA just 2 minutes away, we had a 4 day pass (various timescales available which you purchase from a machine down the escalator) and we waited no longer than 6 minutes for a train.
Breakfasts were great with fresh orange juice, tea/coffee and a different speciality breakfast each day. We were invited to help ourselves to drinks from the fridge.
We had the Diamond Hill Room with comfortable mattress, full pillows, bathrobes and plenty of towels and storage. There’s a TV in the bedroom, but you’re also welcome to use the one in the sitting room with access to the computer and internet. I misinterpreted private bathroom as en-suite, but it was just a few steps away and it really wasn’t an issue. Conditioning shampoo and shower gel are provided, with even more fluffy white towels.
We live in the English countryside and we enjoyed the downtown location.
The stay was more than we expected and is fully recommended.
