Eggs Benedict with a Southern Twist

Today at Stonehurst Place we’re serving Eggs Benedict with a Southern twist! Swap the English muffin for a crispy cornmeal-battered cheesy grits cake, tuck in some spicy chicken sausage crumbles, then add a fresh, broiled tomato on the side. We had a lot of Clean-Plate-Club members this morning!

Are you some one who wonders ‘WHAT is a Grit?”

We get a lot of you if you’re not from the South (of the US, obviously! ;) … here is a definition, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Grits refers to a ground-corn food of Native American origin, that is common in the Southern United States and eaten mainly at breakfast. Modern grits are commonly made of alkali-treated corn known as hominy.

Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world such as polenta. “Instant grits” have been processed to speed cooking.

The word “grits” derives from the Old English word “grytt,” meaning coarse meal.[1] This word originally referred to wheat and other porridges now known as groats in parts of the UK. Maizeunknown in Europe in the Middle Ages, is a food derived from corn (a New World plant) and “corn” had been used to describe wheat products in many European regions.”

“Excellent B&B”

Pin It

Stonehurst has a nice, relaxing atmosphere.

After considering some of the bigger hotels in town, my husband and I decided to stay here for the first two nights of our honeymoon and it was the best decision we could have made. The B&B itself is beautiful and has a nice, relaxing atmosphere. The owners are very friendly, personable, and easy to work with (they had no issue with our 10:00 arrival time from our wedding). The room we chose (the Gables suite) was absolutely spectacular and was every bit as nice and luxurious if not nicer than rooms I have stayed in at 5 star hotels. The food there was outstanding. Each day we were served a two course breakfast and my husband and I agreed that they were the best breakfasts we had ever had. They also had homemade baked goodies and water available all day long. I truly cannot recommend this place enough! My husband and I greatly look forward to returning for our 1 year anniversary!

“A little piece of home in Atlanta”

Stonehurst Place, a lovely “home” like environment!

It was honestly the best place my fiance and I have stayed in a very long time. It was such a lovely “home” like environment which is really invaluable when you’re traveling. After a hectic day we came back to homemade brownies waiting and I was able to have a cup of tea and take a bath in a gorgeous spa tub with a heated towel rack – perfect. Also, the breakfast was amazing and the staff was so accomidating. Will definately be back!

“There is a reason this is B&B is #1!”

Pin It

Stonehurst Place is number one for a reason.

My husband and I noticed the high reviews and decided to book The Eaves, the smallest but definitely most unique room in the house. The room houses the large arched windows and has been beautifully decorated. It is a small room but the owner did a wonderful job using the space and the daybed is a great space saver. I would recommend another larger room if you are staying more than a couple nights or need a lot of counter space. We really enjoyed how charming and cozy the room was.

The location was very convenient for us. We were able to walk to the Vortex, the High museum of Art and the Art of touch spa. The only time we drove was to meet up with friends in another area of town. The free parking was a life saver in this area. Im glad we didn’t have to worry about parking or security.

We didn’t get to spend much time lounging around the house but we easily could have. The restoration of the property is immaculate. The owner definitely found a way to keep the house historically accurate yet updated. It is beautifully furnished and decorated while showcasing the artistic and unique features of the home. I also liked that they took the opportunity to make the property greener by recycling, composting, using solar energy and updating plumbing to conserve water usage.

Sarah was our innkeeper but was just visiting while the other innkeepers were away. She was phenomenal and obviously adored the house just as we did. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the home and its restoration efforts over the past few years. She was very friendly and chatted with us whenever she had a chance, she is great. It didn’t hurt that she made us amazing meals each morning ;)

Overall, this place surpassed my expectations. It is number one for a reason. You don’t get such a high rating unless you consistently give each of your guests a great experience. This place has it figured out. I only hope we can make it back in a few years for another great stay.

“I dare you to find one negative about this place”

Pin It

I stayed in the newer room called the Eaves for a business conference. Stonehurst has a rich history and is a trend setter in sustainability practices. I dare anyone to find one negative about this place overall. Parking a strong maybe, but still a stretch. This was not just a regular B&B, but an experience to be had. And could the staff be any nicer and accommodating? I submit that they cannot. The amenities were great. The breakfast was delicious. The room was immaculate. The company and service were amicable and delightful. The location was a walking distance away for most things. This is a first-class experience, and I am glad that I found a great deal online. Paul and Laurie, bravo on making this one of, if not, the best B&B in the South. What are you waiting for people? Stay here for at least a night already!

Green Features: Absolutely amazing. The management of this facility is trend-setting and they hold sustainability as a core value. Please read the info on their sustainable practices.

“The best place when in Atlanta for business or pleasure”

Pin It

We Loved staying at the inn. We came for 4 day conference at Georgia World Conference center and glad we chose this place instead of a hotel. They offer complimentary wifi, parking, breakfast, and added complimentary amenities such as coffee, tea, sodas, wine, fresh baked goods and fruit 24 hours a day. Very relaxing place with several common areas for resting, visiting or working. The staff as very accommodating and friendly. They made us feel like family and offered all the comforts of home. Rooms were private and quiet, never heard other guests at night even with a full inn while we were here. Highly recommend for business or pleasure, one night or more!
