“Comfy, convenient, peaceful amidst city life”

Pin It

We really enjoyed our stay at Stonehurst. When you pull into the driveway and up to the home it’s hard to believe it’s in the middle of bustling Midtown. The home has been beautifully restored/renovated with a modern look that is still true to it’s original personality. The amenities exceeded my expectations. There is a heated towel rack in the bathroom (stayed in the bottom floor queen suite on the left) and treats on the night stand. They do a full tun down service in the evenings which is so wonderful to climb into after a long day/night. I cannot say enough about the owners! They are so pleasant and hospitable which although is often a main reason to stay at a B&B is sometimes lost. They take care of you like family and provide little extras like honey for your coffee or meal from their bee hive! As a plant/landscaping enthusiast I appreciated the big, immaculate yards and fountain area. The entire place teems with life because of the extra special care they take. We also loved that the shaded walk to Piedmont Park and the Botanical Garden were so nice. We’ll be back here, for sure!

Room Tip: All rooms have nice views of garden/greenery

This beautiful home is comfortably located in the heart of Atlanta’s midtown district in walking distance to Piedmont Park and multiple restaurants. But, you may not want to leave this elegant, historical house nestled in a neighborhood on Piedmont Avenue. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and modernized just enough while maintaining the home’s important past. There are several rooms for lounging and inviting porches for outdoor privacy and the gardens are beautiful. And if that’s not enough, the host and hostess are superb and represent Southern Hospitality at its best The food is outstanding!
We look forward to our return!

Dear Rebecca,

Thank you so much for you lovely comments on your Stonehurst Place stay! I love that you felt torn in leaving Stonehurst to see Atlanta’s many sights and of course the nearby and oh-so-walkable Piedmont Park and Atlanta Beltline! I have to confess I feel the same way at Stonehurst … I just want to grab a book and curl up on a sofa in the Music Room or Sleeping porch to read and relax. Paul and Lori sure make relaxing easy with their Southern Hospitality, one of our hallmarks and the reason we get up every day and work at Stonehurst … to provide a superior guest experience! I hope you signed up for our Stash Hotel Rewards program to start earning points when you stay with us and other Stash distinctive properties; soon you’ll have enough points for a complimentary night!

Thank you also for taking the time out of what is probably an action-packed schedule to shout out about your Stonehurst Place experience; it means the world to us.

Hope to host you again soon! Until then, many thanks and warm regards,

Barb

Exploring England Through Castles

Tourism Through Castles and Historical Monuments

As I mentioned before, I lived in London for a while. My partner and I loved exploring the historical monuments, especially all the castles. We had two large dogs and I was enrolled in interiors and garden design school, and as a result exploring the beautiful countryside of England was the ideal getaway. One of the best vacations I have ever taken was during this idyllic time in England.

The UK is a place rich with history. Walking through an unknown town seemingly in the middle of nowhere, you’ll come across house foundations older than any in the United States, and roads from Roman times. I always loved this rich historical aspect, and as a result was enchanted by the suggestion of a friend. He told me that the Landmark Trust was a UK-based building conservation charity, founded in 1965 by Sir John and Lady Smith, that rescues buildings of historic interest. It then rents them out for vacations. And they are wonderful. So obviously, my partner and I decided to stay in a property owned by the Landmark Trust.

We stayed in a beautiful small castle off the coast in Devon that slept 4.kingwear castle, castles Kingswear Castle was built in 1502. That’s only 10 years after Columbus’s first voyage across the Atlantic! The castle is a small defensive castle part of a pair, which represent the most advanced military design of their day. It did not, however, last long. Once military weaponry improved, Kingswear Castle became redundant. It was left to decay in the 1650s, but then rescued and turned into a summer residence in 1855 by Charles Seale Hayne. The Landmark Trust bought it in the 1950s, and now its an incredibly comfortable castle right on the ocean. The castle is fitted with all the important modern amenities, but I loved its remoteness, which meant that my partner and I could enjoy the beautiful countryside with our dogs in tow.

The thing that I love about Landmark Trust accommodations is the same thing that I am trying to achieve with Stonehurst Place; they are authentic buildings which allow you to enjoy the local culture in ways a hotel stay never can.

“Love all there is to look at here!”

Pin It

The history of the place and the “current story” are interesting and inspiring. The place is charming, colorful and comfortable. The breakfast was to die for! And I helped myself to a glass of wine after checking in and a few sweets after returning from a night out. Before checkout the next morning, I found a great spot upstairs to do a little work, on the “sleeping porch.”

Green Features: Great to know Stonehurst has its own rain water collection and filtering system.

Successful Business: Power Positive Words

Stonehurst Place: Sensationally Successful

Facebook and Pinterest often recommend to me power positive words and advice, ways to help me be successful, but often I find the topics don’t really appeal to me.  Posts showing me how to be a tidier person or helping manage my time don’t grab my attention. But recently, an image on Pinterest entitled “10 Ways to Be Sensationally Successful at Your Job” from the American Express #Passion Project struck me. It didn’t only appeal to me because I love charts and diagrams, but mostly because I realized almost all the points on the chart were covered by how we manage Stonehurst Place.  How we manage Stonehurst Place is directly related to our guests’ satisfaction and to our success.

Sensationally Successful

To me, one of the most important thoughts on this image is number two, “See your manager as a person you help, not a person who tells you what you do.” As a manager, I love this. It is exactly my style and work ethos.  I also immediately thought about Stonehurst Place innkeepers Paul and Lori, who are sensationally successful at their jobs. As wonderful hosts and team leaders, Paul and Lori are always in step with me. Whether they are reminding me to do managerial tasks like renew my business license, or I am reminding them to give each room a “What-Would-Barb-See Inspection” before they leave, we are a team. That’s what makes Stonehurst Place work so well. In the end, my design of the new Stonehurst Place Carriage House is vetted by and done in conjunction with Paul, while my designs of the interior areas are always in conversation with Lori.

What also adds to how “sensationally succesful” Stonehurst Place is that we, like number five, “Spot the high performers and mimic them.” Stonehurst Place opened in the October 2008, and by January 2009 we were TripAdvisor’s #1 Atlanta inn.  This catapult success was not only because we work tirelessly to ensure the highest quality and standards at Stonehurst Place, but also because we are observant.  Every chance we get to evaluate another property’s success and adapt it to our own guest experience to make it that much more perfect, every time we ourselves are inn or hotel guests – we take in everything and bring back the best to Stonehurst Place.

My favorite is number seven: “Find a way to stand out.”

We did.

Lovely surprise in Midtown Atlanta!

Pin It

Pros: Everything.

Cons: None that I noted.
Location: Great restaurants located within walking distance of Stonehurst.
Made a reservation for an overnight stay here after being a little dissatisfied with a chain hotel a week earlier. This was a delightful surprise, arriving at 6pm,relaxing for a while on the covered deck with a glass of wine provided by the Inn itself. We were directed to the most excellent Italian restaurant within minutes walk of Stonehurst so all in all a delightful stay. Breakfast was quite tasty, a delicious frittata with extras, pressed coffee etc., Great!!

“Purely Excellent B&B”

Pin It

We recently stayed here for a two day business trip. We were really looking forward to our stay! Upon arriving the first evening, we rang the bell and were promptly greeted. Upon the inn keeper coming to the door we realized that we had made a terrible mistake and did not have a reservation for the right dates. Swiftly they welcomed us to the one room they had available that evening. They did inform us that they were booked full the following night. No problem we thought, we were just so grateful that they had a room, a spectacular one at that, for our first night. The next morning while having an excellent breakfast they told us there was a possibility of one of their guest needing to leave early. If so, we would have to move rooms but could stay. In the mean time they let me stay in our room past check out time until they found out if the guest would be checking out early. Lucky for us they did and we were moved to an equally lovely room upstairs.
Highlights -Great service and so accommodating
-Comfortable beds and linens-Comphy sheets are the best!
-Beautifully resorted and decorated.
-Breakfast was excellent and plentiful
-Inn Keepers are top notch
-Location Is excellent-Neighborhood has great restaurants and good access to the interstate.
-Cold and hot beverages available all day long with great snacks!
This property is gorgeous and has a great history. It is by far our favorite place to stay now in Atlanta!
