This is a B&B in the most traditional sense. The rooms are in the upstairs of the owners home. My husband and I were guests in one of two rooms (shared bath with the other room which makes it best for couples traveling together - we were the only guests at the time.) We were looking for a small B&B outside Atlanta that was inexpensive and friendly. Blue and Gray fit the bill perfectly. It is the best B&B bargain we have seen in years ($78 per night - the other room which is a little larger was only $10 more). The room was spotless and cozy (small but not claustrophobic, but next time we would choose the larger room. There was additional window AC to supplement central which was great as this was the hottest summer in Atlanta for many years.
Our host and hostess were friendly, helpful, but not intrusive. We had breakfast on a lovely screened deck overlooking a wooded hillside with dozens of birdfeeders for birdwatchers. The breakfasts were excellent - good portions, tasty, perfect start to the day. We were allowed to use their fridge for wine or other beverages.
The location was perfect - you are very close to the city and to several nearby towns like Kennesaw (home to a gem of a national park and Civil War Museum). You had the feeling of being in the country but the convenience of nearby shopping etc... The town square of Marietta is lovely and old-fashioned with great little shops and restaurants and a lovely fountain.
We would definitely return!
