once a dairy farm, now a bed & breakfast

cows at Mileybright Farmhouse

Mileybright Farmhouse was originally built in 1900 by Judge John S. Candler as his country gentleman’s farmhouse and dairy farm. This historic bed and breakfast offers a country feeling in an urban setting.

The farm was the boyhood home of Tom Forkner, co-founder of Waffle House restaurants. In 1926, 425 acres of the farm became part of historic Avondale Estates. The farmhouse has been sensitively renovated to reflect the bygone era. Six fireplaces, original architectural features, covered verandas and terrace add special charm.

We no longer have cows and chickens, but there is a kitchen garden out back. Guests are welcome to use the comfortable veranda and enjoy the expansive lawn shaded by magnificent trees. A grand magnolia is more than 100 years old.
