Virginia Highland Bed & Breakfast

630 Orme Cir. NE (Monroe Dr.) Atlanta GA

A comfortable Craftsman bungalow saved by a neighborhood activist.

Virginia Highland Bed & Breakfast

Neighborhood activist, Master Gardener, enthusiastic preservationist, mother and grandmother, Chicago native Adele Northrup reared her two children in this 1920 Craftsman bungalow. After a 1996 fire, she restored it completely and opened a bed-and-breakfast inn. The gardens, especially in spring and summer, are the major draw, and in 2006 were designated an Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. The backyard hosts a labyrinth, and to the side is a particularly fine sculpture by the late Atlanta artist Christine Sibley. Rooms are comfortable, homey and furnished with twentieth-century antiques. The two-bedroom "Getaway" suite offers a full kitchen for self-catering guests; children are welcome to stay with parents in this space, which has its own entrance. Breakfast, which is a full, cooked affair and not continental, is not included for guests who stay in this particular room. Some rooms have balconies and private entrances. A garden-enthusiast's retreat, the Virginia Highland captures the renewed charm of its classic Atlanta neighborhood. It is handy to Piedmont Park and other attractions.
