"Stoasis" is a 12-acre horse farm, surrounded by forest, adjacent to parks and minutes from the Windward business and shopping districts. You'll love the bed, the pool, the location, the farm atmosphere and especially the privacy--an oasis of tranquility in the center of Alpharetta!
The Guest Suite is comprised of a 1st floor bedroom with its own entrance, a mini kitchen, laundry, coffee bar, private bathroom with direct access to the pool, and a private porch to enjoy your morning coffee overlooking the pool, pastures and forest.
This suite works well for singles, for couples and for business travelers requiring short-term, peaceful and private accommodations.
We enjoyed our stay at Stoasis. Found the “mini”apartment very well maintained and comfortable. George added a wonderful breakfast for our first morning - excellent! Our accommodations were within 5 miles of our family - truly convenient. We spent most of our time in Georgia with family, but did take a walk to visit the horses - a truly beautiful setting. We would definately stay there again. Matt and Sylvia S.
Best breakfast ever
I had a terrific stay at Stoasis. The place is well-maintained, clean and hospitable. I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy a peaceful walk along the pathway to the barn. The horses greeted me as I strolled. The room is quiet and had everything needed. George is a terrific host and provided 1st morning breakfast to help with the travel transition. I travel for business to Alpharetta and will really enjoy staying at Stoasis frequently. Morning coffee on the patio while watching the horses graze is the best! Stoasis is quite simply summed up as "easy comfort".
George has a beautiful suite & everything you need. He is so kind & caring for his guest. Great weekend of relaxation, beautiful property & home. Watching the horses in the pasture while having my morning coffee was such a treat! George goes over and beyond for his guest!!! Thank you for a special weekend.
Despite the two of us arriving after 11pm on check-in day, George was happy to greet us and give us a quick tour of the accommodations. Throughout the weekend, he was there when we needed him, and not there when we didn't...an excellent host. We had everything we needed, and knew that George was just a phone call or text message away if we ran out of anything, or needed help with something. The fridge had condiments and water and some goodies in it, and there were supplies of everything we needed in the kitchen. Shower supplies and clean towels were in the bathroom. It seems like our host thought of everything-including a visual diagram for how to use the remote controls. I asked about a map of the property when we checked-in, and the next morning received an email with four different maps, labeled with highlights/features on each! Thank you, George! Even though we did not take any walks during our stay, we did take a short stroll to the fence to meet and pet the beautiful horses, Willow and Bella. The property is serene and beautiful, and belies its "metro Atlanta" designation. It is close to all of the places we drove to during our stay, and is kept very neat and clean. I am looking forward to visiting again!
Couldn’t ask for more of relaxation and great host. This place is very peaceful and quiet, with an attentive host. Thank you.
Absolutely beautiful property, a truly special place. Great location close to everything but incredibly peaceful and relaxing. A completely different experience than staying in the typical hotel. George was terrific, friendly, yet gave us our space. My wife mentioned candles when the power went out and that she liked the horses. He showed up with candles and carrots a little while later. The suite is very nicely done and spotless. Could not have asked for a better place to spend a few nights.
This place is beautiful. It is obvious there was a lot of attention put into the decor and design. The owner, George, is a terrific host. We enjoyed the short walk across the property and visiting with the resident horses. Bella and Willa are the sweetest horses. The place comes with all the comforts of home - kitchen, laundry machines, swimming pool, television, DVD player, and Google Home. It is secluded with lots of trees. It is close to the city, but just far enough away for some peace and relaxation. We only stayed a couple of days, but wish we could have stayed longer.
An incredible place. The owner has thought of everything. The welcome breakfast was incredible made from scratch. Everything was at our fingertips. You are only minutes from making it to local restaurants. Enjoy the walk along the trails at the edge of the property. It was staying on your own private estate at less cost than staying at a hotel. Thank you George for a wonderful visit!
Wonderful secluded peaceful living unit attached to a beautiful home. The setting from the private back porch is a large nice landscaped area with a pool and views of the acreage down to the horse pastures. Lots of surrounding trees and occasional deer. A refuge from the most times hectic traffic in the Alpharetta/Roswell area. George is a very nice landlord. We will be back!
This is a beautiful property, very relaxing setting. We enjoyed breakfast on the back porch, an afternoon around the pool, petting the horses and daily walks to the nearby park. George is a great host.
George was so kind, sweet, and extremely attentive. He truly understands how to make your stay feel complete. It literally felt like hotel service. Always had trash taken, fresh warm towels, and coffee at hand. And had so many little items we forgot like shampoo, and kitchen condiments available. Beautiful little room. Will definitely return for a weekend out in alpharetta area.
We had a wonderful stay at this amazing secluded retreat. It felt as if we were entering into a dream from the moment we turned up the winding driveway surrounded by woods. We stayed in the apartment on the south end of the large home, with parking right at our doorstep. The grandeur of the home was equalled by the sprawling immaculately manicured grounds overlooking paddocks with horses and modern outbuildings. The entire property is within the woods, with walking trails and a park nearby. We found a stream and meditation area and enjoyed the serenity and seclusion. The location was perfect - only a few miles from Alpharetta in one direction, and close to a shopping area in the other, where we found a gym and supermarket. It was an easy drive to the Marta station and other surrounding towns. There were plenty of activities to enjoy and places to visit. The apartment had everything we needed - from a functional kitchen to a roomy bathroom with separate toilet area, to a bedroom with a lovely view and wifi including a google speaker. The interior is clean and new, constructed with modern upscale fixtures and tile and tastefully decorated. There is a patio area accessible through the doors off the bathroom, where you can sit and eat, have morning coffee, or just enjoy the view. The bird songs were a perfect background for the setting, away from all the traffic and city noise. George took the time to visit with us, he lives right next door and was thorough in explaining all we needed to know about the apartment and the area. He was quick to attend to our requests, yet otherwise remained unseen and gave us our space. We cooked all of our own meals, so a regular stove/oven would have been handy, however the portable, plug-in, double burner electric hob was sufficient and would be all that most people would need. We got a bit chilly a few of the nights, but we understand the weather was unseasonably cool while we were there. There was a large washer and dryer in the kitchen which was great to accommodate a longer stay. When we visit the area again, George’s place will be our first choice. We are frequent travelers of various countries, and have stayed in many different types of homes, and rate this one at the top of the list.
I live and work in the area but needed to stay somewhere for a week and could not have chosen a better place. From the parking spot right outside my door to the back porch where I had my morning coffee, I could not have felt more at home. A very inviting and relaxing atmosphere that is private and secluded. Highly recommended!
Will be back next time we visit relatives n the area. Felt like home.
Ahhhh...with traffic and crowds behind me, my mind and body relaxed as I viewed pastures, horses, and then...this beautiful sanctuary. My cordial host welcomed me and a 5-star visit began. I feel very fortunate to have experienced the understated elegance of the property and the unpretentious, accommodating demeanor of my host.
My wife and I were looking for a quiet, secluded place to spend a long weekend celebrating our anniversary and we could not have found a better place! George is welcoming, friendly, and made us a wonderful breakfast the first morning. The property is absolutely gorgeous. The guest suite is just as described---warm, cozy, clean, and well decorated. We enjoyed walking the grounds and the walking trails behind the property, the restaurants in the area, and golfing. We hope to be back next year!
What a wonderful slice of heaven tucked away in North Georgia. George was a gracious and friendly host, and every need we could think of had already been anticipated. A fairy tale property with beautiful grounds and pool, and enchanting horses. Looking forward to returning. Thanks for the hospitality.
George was awesome enjoyed this day would definitely go back! Love the secluded environment with the fields and the horses!
A hidden gem, every detail covered from well appointed room to teas, great breakfasts and even carrots in the frig to feed the horses. We will be repeat guests when we visit family in the area for sure! Thank you
Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Great setting and the host is very friendly and helpful. I found myself sitting on the porch in the mornings looking out over the pool and rolling hills......fabulous and tranquil. Enjoy.
For starters the property is unbelievable, so beautiful .... 2nd, George, is first class in hospitality!!!! He was so kind and made sure our needs were met. He went above and beyond to make us feel special!! We will definitely be back!!!! Such a lovely place Thank you George for such an enjoyable weekend!!!!
Loved that there were giant carrots for us to feed the horses! Breakfast was great and we loved lounging by the pool. Our host was a gracious host. He seems to have thought of everything for a comfortable stay.
I can't thank George enough for taking such good care of us. We asked for 7 AM breakfast and the knock on the door was at 7 AM sharp. The breakfast for the three mornings of the 4 mornings we were there was like being at a five star hotel. The only bad thing was we didn't want to wake up George for our last morning because we were leaving at 4 AM. He still wanted to do breakfast but we still said no thank you. The accommodations were perfect. We felt like we were home. It was super private. We were in town for our grandson's 1st birthday so all the grand kids were there. I took our 5 year old granddaughter to feed the horses. Oh did I tell you there where 3 horses. She loved it. And so did I. We even saw deer on the ride onto the grounds. I am so glad I got to stay at this wonderful place. It even had Netflix. Oh and the parking was 3 feet from your door. Can't ask for better. Enjoy. Joe And Kathy
I enjoyed my stay very much. Much nicer than being in a hotel. The property is just beautiful, the bed was real comfortable, and the owner, George, was so nice. Would definitely recommend staying here!
This was the most perfectly quiet and quaint retreat I've had in quite a while. George was a most kind and gracious host who went out of his way by making me a scrumptious breakfast complete with coffee on my two mornings there as well as make the bed and provide fresh towels for my second day. The accommodations are as lovely as they appear in the pictures, the horses friendly and playful and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone needing to stay in the Atlanta area for a quick retreat. Thank you for everything George!
This cozy homestay was delightful. The area was quiet and beautiful. George was the perfect host. And what can we say about breakfast - just absolutely yummy. The service was amazing, we wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you George for allowing us to stay at your place. We would highly recommend to family and friends back home in New Zealand and to all others viewing online for a home away from home.
A wonderful stay! The owner was very kind and hospitable. Beautiful property, very peaceful. Overall a great experience.
I could not have asked for a better night! The room was not so much a room as a guest house. Our host was incredibly nice and very flexible--even when our arrival was unexpectedly delayed until the middle of the night. The accommodations were just beautiful. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. The property was lovely. The kitchenette was fully stocked. And in the morning we were served a lovely breakfast, delivered right to our door! Nice touch!
The owner, Mr Stough, goes the extra mile to provide you with everything that you need to make your stay a comfortable and peaceful experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the stay there and I was always treated with friendliness. The setting is peaceful with both horses and wildlife on the property. It is also a beautiful property and is quite a place to come home to after a day at work. The swimming pool is also available to soak away the stresses of a work day. I will definitely recommend a stay here. Mr Stough is always ready to help with anything.
