Marietta restaurant featured in Robert Redford film for sale for $1 million

The rustic restaurant near Kennesaw Mountain where Robert Redford and Nick Nolte filmed scenes for "A Walk in the Woods" is on the market.

Louise's could be yours for $1 million. According to its real estate listing the structure is 3,686 square feet and sits on a little less than an acre.

Redford and Nolte played Bill Bryson and Stephen Katz, longtime buddies who tackle physical and emotional challenges during their time on the Appalachian Trail, in the 2015 film.

Redford enjoyed his time in metro Atlanta so much during the filming that afterward, he sent a statement via his publicist to bid us a fond farewell:

"As we bring the filming of 'A Walk in the Woods' to a close, I want to give a salute of thanks to the city and its people. My stay here has brought me face-to-face with the expression 'Southern Hospitality.' It is true. And appreciated. The preface of 'Sir' when addressing others, the laid-back warmth and desire to have a good day stands in stark contrast to cities. Even the cars here are polite. Thank you and please stay the course."
