The 12 Coolest Airbnbs in Atlanta, Georgia

The Big Peach, the New York of the South, Hotlanta — whatever you call it,  Atlanta, Georgia, has a lot to offer travelers.

Luxury travelers will find fine dining (and not just the southern-inspired fare you might expect) and high-end shopping. Family travelers will find loads of educational, entertaining activities for the kids. History buffs have a bevy of museums to choose from, sports lovers can cheer for multiple major sports teams, and nature fans can find world-class parks. Heck, there’s even the Coca-Cola museum. There’s truly something for everyone.

Whatever you plan to do while in Atlanta, though, you’ll need a great place to stay. Luckily, there are great airbnbs in Atlanta with as much variety as the city. Here are a few of the best to book before they get snatched up.

1. Archimedes’ Nest at the Emu Ranch

Why you should stay: Lux getaway that feels a world away from the rest of Georgia.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $295/night

Enjoy the vibrant buzz of Atlanta during the day but retreat to your own private oasis hidden in the trees at night. This small yet luxurious space feels far removed from the city, but, in reality, you’re only a short walk away from East Atlanta Village.

One of the coolest features? The “nest” is surrounded by a lush garden filled with artwork, swans, peafowl, turkeys, and — yes — emus. The decor even brings the outdoors in with unique wood and stone accents and furnishings that will inspire you to channel your own inner Greek scientist.

2. Beltline Loft

Why you should stay: An airy loft in a great location

  • Sleeps: 3
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $225/night

If you have a tendency to feel cramped in most hotel rooms or Airbnb rentals, the Beltline Loft is for you, as this loft is anything but cramped. Housed in a 1900’s cotton warehouse, it boasts soaring ceilings nearly 20 feet high and tons of natural light. It’ll be one of your favorite airbnbs in Atlanta if you’re a fan of the city’s industrial, historical past.

If you can bear to leave the gorgeous, sunny space with its minimalistic decor, you’ll find a convenient location on Atlanta’s BeltLine, a former railway corridor revitalized as a walking trail. Along the way, you’ll find public art, tours, fitness classes and more, as well as tons of shopping and dining. It’s akin to New York City’s Highline, but everything is a bit cheaper.

Why you should stay: A dreamy treehouse in a 400-year-old oak tree.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $371/night

This treehouse airbnb is a far cry from the treehouses of your youth. With high vaulted ceilings and a chic, boho vibe, you’ll have everything you need to kick back and relax in style like a full-fledged grown-up.

But beyond the all-important air conditioning and Wi-Fi, more luxurious amenities are also available when you book this Atlanta airbnb, such as private chef, mixology services, and on-site massages. The treehouse’s location in the suburbs of Atlanta makes for quieter nights and stellar stargazing.

Why you should stay: A mini-mansion for you and a huge group of your besties or family.

  • Sleeps: 16
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $332/night

New, new, new — that’s the theme in this oversized airbnb. No expense was spared to ensure guests would be able to have access to all the best and latest amenities. And it’s all set against a clean, neutral color scheme. The entire home looks like an open-house-ready model home, and better still, it’s one of the cheaper airbnbs in Atlanta if you divide the cost by the number of guests it can hold (though more guests does raise the price a bit.)

You may just decide you want to move in permanently, especially after you take advantage of the home’s proximity to Atlanta’s most famous green space: Piedmont Park. There, you’ll have great views of the Atlanta skyline, a range of outdoor activities and sporting facilities, and even a spot of fishing, if that’s your thing.

Why you should stay: Fun and funky industrial loft within walking distance to the BeltLine.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $235/night

Farmhouse meets industrial in this unique farmhouse-style airbnb with a loft near the BeltLine, in Atlanta’s Reynoldstown neighborhood. Rough reclaimed wood features abound, as do sleek concrete floors. Plush couches and bedding add a soft touch to balance it out. This is technically a pet-friendly rental, but they’re not allowed on the furniture, so think twice about bringing your dogs used to snuggling up with you.

A porch swing provides an outdoor space to relax on the bottom floor while a ceiling fan-equipped balcony with a fire bowl provides even more space off the second floor. Everyone gets space to spread out, but when it’s time to come together in the big eat-in kitchen or in the living area (maybe to project a movie, theater-style?), no one will feel crowded.
