South X Southeast PhotoGallery B&B

 

Located one hour south of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport South x Southeast PhotoGallery and BnB sits on a 30-acre, 4th generation farm outside the small town of Molena. Not only does the 1930 barn serve as a photogallery for emerging and established fine art photographers, it is also a B&B loved by many guests! Come stay with us in the quiet countryside and enjoy fine art, walks in the woods, a fireplace out back and an upstairs loft with a view of the fields and farm.

 

 

 

 

The upstairs loft is our guest quarters with a double bed, seating, and a writing table. A queen-sized air mattress is available for the 3rd guest.

 

The back of the loft has big, comfy lounge chairs with ottomans, and overlooks the five acre field backed by 30+ acres of woodlands. The original tin roof and rafters serve as the upstairs ceiling with a new tin roof over that – it’s the one vacation spot where you’ll hope it rains while you’re here! There are books, magazines, and board games available, along with lots of quiet space in which to enjoy them.

 

Downstairs is your kitchen complete with microwave oven, toaster oven, hot plate, full refrigerator, coffee and tea accompaniments. There is a bar where you may sit and enjoy your meals, or you’re welcome to use the long table in the gallery space. An extra large bathroom with a camp shower completes the downstairs.

 

Downstairs also houses the photo gallery, with exhibitions changing every 6-8 weeks.

 

And there is also a small wood-burning stove if you prefer wood to central heat.

 

 

The breezeway entrance was originally where my grandfather kept his tractor. But now it’s our screened porch dining and relaxing area. The big daybed is a great place to fall asleep reading a book or to curl up in the evenings with a glass of wine. The dining table seats 8 and offers you a space to spread out for dinners or writing, or catching up on the computer.

 

And out back is the patio and raised fireplace – the perfect height to prop your feet up on the hearth and keep them warm in front of a roaring fire.
