Outstanding B&B

Pin It

My wife chose this B&B after all the hotels were booked in downtown and midtown Atlanta for Labor Day weekend. If you are driving, the entrance is tricky. When driving north on Piedmont, it is the second house on the right past 8th St. The driveway is just past the house. Don’t feel bad if you miss it. Most everyone the first time there. Once you make the right turn into the driveway, there are a couple of parking places at the front driveway and more on up the driveway behind the house.

The front door is normally locked. Ring the doorbell and let whoever answers know you are there to check in. Otherwise, they’ll think you’re there to tour the place.

But if you are a guest checking in, be prepared for a tour of the house. It is a historic house built in the late 19th century that has been refurbished with modern amenities. The tour takes a while so if you’re tired from a long trip you may want to tell them to postpone the house tour until later.

We stayed in the Master Suite. It has a huge walk-in shower, tub, separate toilet room and a walk-in closet. The bedroom and living area is one large room with a separate room for a work desk near the entrance to the suite.

The bed is very comfortable with high count sheets. I usually don’t sleep when I’m traveling but I wanted to sleep late in this bed. i just couldn’t wake up!

The TV has a mix of high def channels and standard def channels. WiFi speed is very good. The code is on a card on the desk.

Breakfast is wonderful. Prepare to be well fed. We normally delayed lunch or had an early dinner after eating breakfast. It is served around a gorgeous dining room table with other guests. You will be quizzed on your previous day or what you will be doing after breakfast. You will also get some great recommendations from the hosts, if you need some.

Noise from Piedmont is very minimal, considering the location. They have done a great job soundproofing the house.

Concert Night

This was about our 5-6th B and B stay and by FAR the nicest. Many of our stays have been New England/New Hampshire,or the Low Country of SC, but none came close to the Stonehurst Inn. Beautiful furniture, nice and private common areas, every detail Thought out beforehand. Exqusite beds, quiet bedrooms, and nice late Night dessert goodies. Our room was TheGable, large,comfortable with a fabulous shower. Think we will find an excuse just to come back and stay here to recuperate from too much time flying the friendly skies

“Stonehurst is kind of amazing…”

Beautifully transformed and maintained. Owned by a designer (it shows) who lives offshore and leaves it in the hands of the friendly and helpful innkeepers, Paul and Lorrie. Price was less than the nearby Hyatt midweek for the smallest room (I got an upgrade)…throw in the great breakfast and free parking (no valet, no in-and-out charges) and it was a bargain.

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.”

Stonehurst Place gives you a peaceful, sirene environment

What can I say but simply amazing and beautiful property!!! We fell in love at first site from our initial viewing online but we were breathless when we arrived on site. The pictures are pheonomal online and are a true depiction of what you see is what you get. The pictures do serve their purpose but you can’t capture all that beauty in a photo! The scenery is breathtaking! Stonehurst place is comfortably placed in Midtown Atlanta that gives you a peaceful, sirene environment from the busy Atlanta atmosphere. The innkeepers, Paul and Lori, strive to ensure your stay is comfortable and they truly cater to your every need. We loved their sprit of service!
I’m glad I found this place for my elopement wedding ceremony through the Google search engine. It was beyond perfect or what I could have ever imagined thanks to Stonehurst place….I would have to write a book to describe all the perfect little details!!! But if you need any help deciding on staying here…think no more and stay…You will not be disappointed…I promise. We are already making plans to return on our 1 year anniversary and I’m so exicited!!!

“Excellent B&B!”

Pin It

Stonehurst Place 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!
