Best back-to-the-farm B&B

Staff Pick

When you make a reservation on the Social Goat's website, there's a place to indicate the reason for your stay: to visit friends or family, for business or pleasure, or simply goats. Yup. Goats. Built in 1900, the three-story Victorian home originally was a working farm, and in 2005, owner/operator Kristy Smith bought the property and eventually returned it to its rustic roots in miniature form. Besides the two Nigerian dwarf goats — Sherman and Tallulah — the Social Goat is home to three turkeys and a dozen chickens, which means fresh eggs in the morning for guests. The house itself has been beautifully restored after basically being taken down to the studs, and consists of two smaller rooms and two suites, all of which are charming and affordable: The huge third-floor suite is just $140 a night. Across the courtyard, replete with fountain, there's also a newly constructed carriage house that's often used for families with children. Best of all (well, besides the dwarf goats): It's located in Grant Park, a stone's throw from Zoo Atlanta, the Cyclorama and downtown. 548 Robinson Ave. 404-626-4830.
