Come relax in our charming 1904 apartment in Demorest. It's been beautifully decorated while maintaining several of it's historic features. Spend the day in the GA mountains & stay cozy warm at night. Wake to coffee of your choice & have a homemade treat or some fresh eggs from my chickens. You'll love being so close to waterfall hikes, wineries, Tallulah Gorge, Appalachian Trail, Piedmont College, Helen, etc

The space
The Tomlin House is right in the center of Demorest with Sweet Breads restaurant just off the front porch and Temperance House Coffee just around the corner. This 1 bedroom apartment is on the main floor, front entrance of the house. This space was originally a printing press and then became a grocery store in the 1920s. This historic property has been completely modernized with a Daikin heating and air system. While original elements such as heart pine doors and floors have been lovingly restored. The apartment has a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom with a walk in closet, and laundry room. The apartment is great for couples, solo adventurers, young families, business travelers, and dogs. Although this is truly a space that you can live in it's also perfectly suited to anyone wanting a comfy rest at the end of a day of hiking, visiting wineries or just enjoying the mountains.
At the Tomlin House we strive to make each guest feel like they are the first to stay in our bnb. After each guest, the wood floors are vacuumed, steamed and polished. The tile floors are vacuumed and steamed or bleached. The carpets are vacuumed and steamed. All sheets, pillow cases, blankets and duvet cover are washed in hot water with the best detergents (bleached where applicable) and softeners. The upholstery is vacuumed and steamed as well. We've always employeed these cleaning techniques of cleaning with steam and disinfecting to keep a sparkling clean space.

Guest access
This house was built in 1904 and has always had 2 completely separate apartments that are not connected by any internal staircases or doorways. The main level where you will be staying was originally a printing press and then in the 1920s became a grocery store. You'll even see black ink in the original wood floors. This is a 650 sq.ft bright and clean apartment from the slip-covered furniture to the hypoallergenic covers for the boxspring, mattress and all the pillows. All of this is topped with flax linen or 1200tc cotton sheets, down pillows and a down comforter. If down allergies are a concern, please let me know in advance and down-alternative pillows and comforter can be used for your stay.
There's cable TV and 50Mbps internet service for the business traveler. There's sitting space on the front porch. Another private sitting space on the outdoor patio with a small firepit/grill. Firewood is pre-cut and waiting for you. And a third area out back on the property, a large fire pit with a view of the town and college campus. Firewood is waiting at this location as well.

Sweet Breads restaurant is just steps from the front porch. Temperance House Coffee is just around the corner. The house is right in the middle of an old fashioned walk around town and directly across from the Chapel at Piedmont College and the commuter parking lot. Demorest Springs Park is within 75 yards of the house. It has playground equipment for children and is a nice walk for dogs.

I'm from North GA. I've lived in Germany and Scotland at different times in my life, but have returned to the North GA that I love. I spend my free time restoring old houses, trout fishing, keeping a mobile chicken coop (so there will be fresh eggs in the fridge at all times), and rabbit hunting with house beagles.
