“Really nice place to stay in Atlanta”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room and the house interior are beautiful. The gardens are well maintained and the animals are cute, except the turkeys I never realized how ugly they are until I got to see them close up at the B and B.

Breakfast was fantastic both days. The pancakes were really nice on the first day and on the second we had french toast. I am normally not a fan but this was delicious.

My husband really liked the cats especially Monkey who if you let him will come and hang out with you in your room.

In regards to location it was not too far from downtown. The owner even drove us to the closest train (Marta) station so we could use public transport. We got the bus back and it stops a street away.

Overall a really nice place to stay.

We stayed at the Social Goat while in Atlanta for the night on our way to NC for our honeymoon. Kristy was great! She left us a key and allowed us to leave our luggage in the house while we checked out some sights. We stayed in the Master Suite and it was perfect! I knew my husband wouldn't go for sharing a bathroom with other guests on our honeymoon and the jacuzzi tub was an added bonus!! The ceiling fan and ac weren't working in the room, but the weather was so nice outside we just opened the windows and Kristy gave us a portable fan. Breakfast was delicious! I found out later my husband had wanted done of the fresh eggs, but I'm sure if he had asked she would have gladly made him some! As we were leaving I was impressed when she discounted our room for the ac!

Frankly, the name put me off initially - but that was quickly dispelled. This is a fine B&B in Atlanta. We were there only one night and did not have time to look around the area, but it seemed pretty convenient to a number of places. It is set well back from the road and was quiet. Yes, there are goats, and turkeys and various other beasts - all pets to the owner - but it was not off-putting at all; kind of charming, in fact. Big house, big rooms, enormous bath with a big shower, all excellent. Owner was very helpful in pinpointing good places to eat within reasonable distance. Breakfast was very good, with plenty to eat; excellent pancakes with at least 6 different syrups from which to choose. Very convenient to Atlanta Airport as well. Not the cheapest place you'll find, but was great for our requirements. Recommended.

We were traveling to Atlanta with our baby for a last minute trip to meet up with some friends. We called The Social Goat in route to Atlanta and Kristy suggested the Carriage House. When we arrived we found the property was beautifully laid out and unique. The Carriage House was very clean and roomy. The pictures on the website are accurate. The bed was super comfortable and we all slept great! She even offered a pack-n-play to us but we brought one. Breakfast the next morning was very tasty! Kristy is a great cook! While visiting we got to interact with the animals and our baby loved it. All the animals are friendly and so fun to watch.
The Social Goat is very close to the Zoo and many other attractions in Atlanta. Many are within walking distance. Kristy also has a wealth of knowledge about attractions and restaurants if you need suggestions.
We will be coming back to The Social Goat the next time we stay in Atlanta!

We stayed here at the suggestion of an Atlanta couple recommending lodging for their wedding party and close friends, and they were spot on. The owner's took exceptional pride and care in restoring and rebuilding an old home ravaged by a wind storm and termites. Their attention to detail in the reconstruction is worth a visit all by itself. On the first floor in the main house are several sitting rooms where you can relax along with a large dining room, and kitchen. As we were there over the holidays, one of the sitting rooms was beautifully decorated. Breakfasts were quite good. The grounds were most interesting with, yes goats and turkeys and chickens and several outdoor sitting areas.

We stayed in The Master Suite which was huge, but a bit pricey at $240/night. You could hold a dance in our suite without any difficulty. And an added benefit were ladybugs high up in the corners of a few ceilings.

A really wonderful inn. The house is immaculately kept. The breakfast (made from newly laid eggs produced by the inn's own hens) delicious -- and Kristy is a kind and thoughtful host. Besides the hens, there are goats, varicolored turkeys and 3 charming cats, so it's a welcoming place, full of life, comfort, and amusement. We will be back.

Beautiful property and friendly critters! Kristy was very helpful and kind! My husband and I enjoyed a quick stop into the city for the weekend. Great location! Very easy to get to all areas of Atlanta from this B&B but way better than staying in an expensive hotel. This venue also accommodates small weddings.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Yellow Room which has a pretty little balcony overlooking the farm :-)
