Though I researched B&B's near Midtown and Piedmont Park, Adele's place met all expectations and so much more! "The Victorian" was a lovely room on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the tranquil gardens. The historical home, appointed with antiques and art pieces, was surrounded with an explosion of spring color! Morning coffee on my 'perch' above the backyard foliage was a relaxing start to each day of my six day visit. Morning walks in the neighborhood led to new Atlanta "finds".... Orme Park, which boasted lush woods and a stream, quaint shops on N. Highland Ave., coffee houses, a farmer's market, and Alon's Bakery and Market. The location was superb with plenty of street parking. The Botanical Gardens, the High Museum, the Symphony Hall, Playhouses, Georgia Tech, and numerous top-rated restaurants were all just minutes away. I came to Atlanta to visit my son and Adele's B&B was an "unexpected gem"!
