I was in Atlanta for a one week training course. I am on a restricted diet, so I was searching for a place that would cater to my needs. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and thought “This place cannot be as good as everyone says.” Well, it was. I was impressed from the moment I walked in and saw the photos of the house as it was 100 years ago. Gary showed me my room, the Farnsworth, which has a newly renovated bathroom. The breakfasts were fantastic and met my taste and dietary needs. There was wine and cheese or cheese straws every evening; homemade pies, cookies, candy, soft drinks, coffee and tea available 24 hours. Gary and Caroline knew the best places to eat, and the conversation was wonderful. The owners are apparently very environmentally conscious, even to the point of using grey water in the toilet! The inn is located near the Mid-town area, but very close to Virginia Highlands, the Arts Center, and Georgia Tech. Piedmont Park is 3 blocks away. It is very quiet in the evenings. The inn offers per diem rates for government employees traveling on business. Stonehurst is great option if you are on business or traveling for pleasure in Atlanta. And, after nearly 50 reviews, I believe this is the first 5 star review I have ever given.
