This historic building, walking distance to the Marietta Square, dates back to the early 1900s and has been a grocery store, mechanic, and one-room hotel.
You'll be staying in the former one-room hotel (full circle!) in a renovated mini-suite.
Welcome to the Watermelon Compound!
This building was built over a hundred years ago and has has physically grown as it became a mechanic, doll socks accessory store, grocery, one-room hotel, unregistered bar, and now a multi-space residence.
For those of you that saw "doll socks" and immediately thought HAUNTED, don't worry, that building is behind the one you'll be staying in and probably isn't haunted by barefoot porcelain dolls.
The suite has an exterior door entrance and is closed off from the rest of the building, keeping it completely private. Check out the photo descriptions for a mini-tour of the suite.
After each guest, this room is professionally cleaned by Klennerly, with a guarantee of your satisfaction!
With multiple spaces, we ask that guests be respectful of the other parts of the property, including the private garden areas, carriage house, and grocery store which is now a residence. This suite is separate from the rest of the house, with its own exterior entrance, but does share a wall with a space that occasionally occupied.
Either I or the other resident, Jesse, will be present at the property. We both work odd hours, so may not be around when you arrive.
I like to give guests their privacy, but am happy to answer questions about the area and give suggestions or where to eat and what to do.
The Watermelon Compound is an ongoing renovation project. Your suite was one of the first parts to be updated, but don't be surprised it you see somebody on the roof!
There is a small senior dog on the property, but she will only be in the other residences and fenced-in back yard.
Pets must be under 25 lbs. The space is too small to comfortably fit a medium/large dogs, as much as we love them! There is a dog park a block away at Lewis Park and I highly recommend a walk down the bike path to the park for your pup to get some outside time.
Smokers cannot smoke or vape inside the suite, but there are chairs directly outside where they are welcome to lounge and smoke/vape as long as any associated trash is taken care of and door to inside is shut.
I am an arts professional that loves visiting and living in historic spaces! I enjoy uniquely functional and comfortable spaces with character. I also love to read and share stories.
I spend a lot of time in my home town of Marietta, Georgia as well as the lovely city of Nashville, Tennessee.
