“The Total B&B Experience @ Stonehurst – Exceptional!”

Pin It

Good friends advised us to stay within walking distance of Piedmont Park during our recent visit to the Dogwood Festival. As well connected Atlanta natives, they recommended 3 places to stay, and we were exceptionally fortunate to stay at their first choice, Stonehurst Place. This is the total B&B package, and sets the standard – for grace, elegance, comfort, friendliness, and unbelievably good food – to which other B&B’s aspire.

My wife and I have travelled widely domestically and overseas. There are less than a handful of places that made such a consistently positive experience from crossing the threshold to our reluctant departure. Stonehurst was a marvelous experience.

Assume for the sake of this review that we had a better stay than the other reviewers. I could go on about the white chocolate apricot scone, the quiche . . . the snacks, cookies and pecan pie left on the sideboard throughout the day. There were books, magazines, movies, and welcome spaces in which to relax, both inside and out. But, there was one thing that we learned that was quite unusual – the owners were away for the week. However, they had retained professional backup innkeepers – Susan & Jim – in their absence. It is one thing for owner’s careful touch to drive the experience, as you appreciate small touches of elegance throughout the day, but, it is quite another when you realize that the owners had such obvious care in selecting their ‘second team’ when they are away. No wonder Stonehurst receives such positive reviews. We will stay nowhere else when visiting Atlanta in the future.

“Fabulous!”

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast in a great part of Atlanta. A park and restaurants are within walking distance. The rooms are clean, clean, spacious and extremely comfortable. There was a sunny front porch, pretty gardens and many treats available. Lori and Paul were most welcoming and gracious. Breakfast was scrumptious. There is nothing not to like here!

“Perfect Property”

Pin It

I could not find a single thing that was lacking…and I tried. The extra touches are what separate the good places from the really outstanding places and this one is really outstanding. The house is beautiful and you are made to feel very welcome and comfortable. There are a couple of nice common areas that allow you to mingle with other guests and/or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine. Delicious baked goodies are available around the clock and breakfast was fantastic. I doubt if a “hotel” will be in my future when staying in Atlanta, it would be difficult to pass up another chance to stay here.

“Business at its Best!!!”

I have been going to Atlanta from Los Angeles, on business, for several years, and Stonehurst Place is my only choice! Nothing compares! I have also traveled to mainy other cities, and continuously look for a similar property. I still haven’t found anything that compares!

“It’s all true”

This is a really first class B&B that delivers as advertised. For me it was the extras that set it apart. Coffee and tea in the sun room, complimentary wine, cookies and cake plus a wonderful breakfast and exceptionally clean accommodations make for a wonderful place to stay. Forget the overpriced hotels of Atlanta, here’s where I’ll be staying from now on.

“Truly Exceptional!”

Pin It

We were delighted in every way with our stay at Stonehurst and it goes right to the top tier of our favorite b&b’s. The inn is absolutely beautifully decorated and the amenities outstanding. Laurie and Paul provided the most gracious and welcoming hospitality. As innkeepers ourselves we were especially grateful for the opportunity to talk “shop” with them. We were fortunate that we happened to be there when the inn wasn’t full so were able to see the other rooms – all gorgeous. Congratulations, Barbara, on setting such a high standard for your b&b and for your well deserved top ranking.

Room Tip: We stayed in the first floor suite which was gorgeous with a luxurious bathroom

Green Features: It’s very impressive that Stonehurst goes to great lengths to be “green” with water conservation measures including glass-bottled water with glasses set on an elegant tray in the guest rooms

“Beautiful B&B”

Pin It

Wonderful hospitality, delicious food and comfy bed made for a pleasant stay. Free onsite parking allowed for us to conveniently park, but with everything nearby, we chose to walk. Breakfast was phenomenal, from the brûléed grapefruit to the brioche French toast with salted caramel banana sauce made by Lori. We only had the opportunity to stay one night, but we look forward to coming back, again.
