“Simply Beautiful”

Pin It

This B&B is sublime. The property itself is stunning with perfectly manicured gardens, cut stone walkways and an imposing southern exterior nestled into one of the safest and most convenient nooks in the city possible. Several trendy nearby restaurants and coffee shops were easily reached by foot on welcoming neighborhood sidewalks frequented by locals walking their beloved pets or out for a morning/evening jog. The interior of the house is all that you would hope for. Stunning, welcoming, clean, quintessentially Southern and stocked with everything one could ever possibly need. From chilling wine in the parlor where you can sit and sip next to a grand piano listening to soft jazz to a bright shared upstairs sitting room with a coffee and tea maker and a printer and complimentary laptop to boot. Did I mention they have WiFi? I stayed in the room named The Eaves and it was more beautiful than the pictures had given it credit for. I was traveling alone and this room provided me with all of the comfort, space and ambiance that I desired. It was, in a word, atmospheric. I would highly recommend it for couples. Beyond the space itself the innkeepers were the very exemplars of southern hospitality; both preparing me a wonderful home cooked breakfast (which I missed because I overslept due to the time difference) and then laughing nonchalantly at my scheduling mishap such that I did not feel remotely chagrined at missing the no doubt fantastic meal that had been prepared for me. There is nothing but a comforting charm in this beautiful manor, both of the architectural and human variety. Luckily the innkeepers keep home baked sweet treats in the dining room all day long which one is able to nibble on at one’s leisure. My grandmother, bless her soul, did just the same thing. CNN was available in my room and a taxi was lovingly arranged for me upon my departure and there ends a purely and completely satisfying experience at Stonehurst Place. Don’t think about it. Just book a room.
