Our Home & Location
We live in a one story 1600 sq. ft. home that we call the "cottage" in Decatur, Georgia, USA. We take great pride in having created a peaceful oasis for ourselves with a front lawn and ample back garden where we now have turned into a living “farm” full of fruit trees, fruit plants, and veggies! You are welcome to all ripe produce. Organic and NONGMO.

Home, (you get a private one-bedroom) right off a gorgeous sunroom encircled with windows. Patio deck has a tin roof and wonderful seating, perfect for listening to the rain or people watching. For the nature lovers we have a Front garden and backyard filled with edible plants as well as pretty flowers.
So much to do with time off as there is a park nearby, hiking trails, local farmers markets, within a few hours or less you can be at lakes or in the mountains. It’s the perfect balance of city and country life.
