My husband and I stayed overnight at the Social Goat this past summer - I picked this B&B over all the other places in Atlanta because of the promise of a goat farm in the backyard. I was not disappointed - Kirstie, the owner, allowed me to "meet and greet" the resident 2 goats, the 3 turkeys, and a bunch of chickens. For this experience alone I would recommend the Social Goat!
This B&B has only been open for a year, though, and having stayed in many B&Bs, it shows - for starters, there was no one there when we arrived, and we had to wait outside for 10-15 minutes for someone to let us in. The street the Inn is on isn't the most inviting (though the neighborhood, on further inspection, is lovely) so this wasn't great. We were also never given a wireless password, and there didn't seem to be anyone around after we got back from dinner to ask for it. Though having said that, Kirstie and her husband had given us a ride to dinner, which was great. Plus, our room (double, with its own balcony and with a shared bathroom) was beautiful - though I would remind travellers to bring their own shampoo and soap!
The other guests staying at the B&B told us that they are putting in an ampitheatre in the back to deal with all the wedding requests they are getting - I'd definitely come back in the future to see how it turns out.
