“Lovely stay in Atlanta”

Pin It

We had a lovely stay at Stonehurst Place. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and the house is truly beautiful. The interior was fitted out to an immaculate level and we loved that it was a “green” hotel. Also, the two-course breakfast we had was delicious!

“A true home away from home experience.”

Pin It

We absolutely loved our stay at the Stonehurst. From the impeccably appointed rooms, to the warm and caring staff, to the great breakfasts this is now on our list of favourite spots to stay. The house has been beautifully restored with interesting art pieces throughout. There were many spots to sit and have a drink or read a book. Our favourite was the front covered patio followed closely by the back screened in porch.

We stayed in the Eaves suite and found it very comfortable. The beds were excellent and the heated floors in the washroom and multi-head shower were a wonderful luxury.

Lori and Paul took great care of us and had a knack for appearing when we needed something but did not hover or impose. There were always snacks and drinks available. The other guest we met were respectful and very friendly.

We like to eat our way through a trip and there were no shortage of great restaurants within a short walk of the Inn. The Lawrence, Lure, and Savy for a quick sandwich were our favorites.

Virgin Atlantic Guide: Atlanta

Pin It

Stonehurst Place is recommended in Virgin Atlantic’s new in-flight travel guide of Atlanta

Virgin Atlantic Destination Guide: Atlanta

Virgin Atlantic Destination Guide spotlights top Atlanta accommodation, Stonehurst Place.

Virgin Atlantic creates in-flight videos that act as miniature guidebooks of the cities to which they fly. Their recently released Atlanta video is well worth a watch, and I’m not just saying this because we’re featured in the video!  The piece lists Stonehurst Place as one of Atlanta’s top eco-friendly resorts, and spotlights our wonderful qualities including spacious suites, delicious breakfasts, and stylish interiors.  It also mentions our art collection that includes a spectacular piece by British artist Nina Mae Fowler, that I discussed in a recent blogpost.  The video is set up as a multi-media guidebook, which begins with a brilliant introduction to Atlanta. It describes Atlanta as a rough and sprawling mass of urban greenery that is “an in demand 21st Century City.” Citing Georgia as the gateway to the South, the video goes so far as to describe Atlanta as the “beating heart” of it. Then it quickly runs through Atlanta’s geographic makeup, describing Atlanta’s five boroughs in short soundbites. The video’s cheerful and excited description of Atlanta isn’t without it’s irony, however. The narrator points out that “the city planners took the peach association very seriously” as the camera flicks through some of the 71 street signs in Atlanta with a variant of “Peachtree” in their name.

Honest Advice for a local, authentic Atlanta stay

This travel guide gives not only a brilliant introduction to Atlanta but also honest advice on traveling through Atlanta, pointing out for example that hailing a taxi in Atlanta is unheard of. Instead, Atlantans rely on calling cabs or using Uber. The video then gives tips for non-locals on how they can navigate the city. Moreover, the video shows a wonderful, authentic side of Atlanta. Rather than focusing on the commercial elements of the Georgia state capital, the video focuses on the authentic and local aspects of Atlanta that lends the town a unique flavor. Promoting unique stores that many locals frequent such as The Junkman’s Daughter and Beehive Jewelry Boutiques, the video takes time to focus on the colorful customers by zooming in on their excitement. Moreover, food the video concentrates on really captures the Atlanta flavor. Virgin Atlantic’s recommended restaurants include some of my favorite, such as Fox Bros. BBQ, my go-to for great ribs, and Mary Mac’s Tea Room, serving classic Southern food just blocks from Stonehurst Place — and for me, an Atlanta dining staple since my youth.

Stonehurst Place

Virgin Atlantic in-flight video features Stonehurst Place innkeepers Lori & Paul Worrell.

Stonehurst Place is spotlighted first in this video and we’re thrilled!  The narrator states “a stay at Stonehurst Place is like being given the keys to your very own Midtown home, complete with two innkeepers on hand to ensure you have the best place possible.” Breakfasts are described as “a delight to wake up to, and among the best you will find in the city,” a huge compliment to Stonehurst Place innkeepers Lori and Paul Worrell who truly make breakfast a treat for our guests.

So, whether you’re coming to Atlanta because of a Gone with the Wind exhibit, the trendy nightclubs of Edgewood Avenue or the Atlanta Movie tour, this video has great recommendations for you.  Watch the full version of the ‘Virgin Atlantic Destination Guide: Atlanta’ and you’re sure to get inspiration for your next Atlanta outing!

“Elegantly preserved past in the city”

Pin It

This beautiful home is comfortably located in the heart of Atlanta’s midtown district in walking distance to Piedmont Park and multiple restaurants. But, you may not want to leave this elegant, historical house nestled in a neighborhood on Piedmont Avenue. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and modernized just enough while maintaining the home’s important past. There are several rooms for lounging and inviting porches for outdoor privacy and the gardens are beautiful. And if that’s not enough, the host and hostess are superb and represent Southern Hospitality at its best The food is outstanding!
We look forward to our return!

“Comfy, convenient, peaceful amidst city life”

Pin It

We really enjoyed our stay at Stonehurst. When you pull into the driveway and up to the home it’s hard to believe it’s in the middle of bustling Midtown. The home has been beautifully restored/renovated with a modern look that is still true to it’s original personality. The amenities exceeded my expectations. There is a heated towel rack in the bathroom (stayed in the bottom floor queen suite on the left) and treats on the night stand. They do a full tun down service in the evenings which is so wonderful to climb into after a long day/night. I cannot say enough about the owners! They are so pleasant and hospitable which although is often a main reason to stay at a B&B is sometimes lost. They take care of you like family and provide little extras like honey for your coffee or meal from their bee hive! As a plant/landscaping enthusiast I appreciated the big, immaculate yards and fountain area. The entire place teems with life because of the extra special care they take. We also loved that the shaded walk to Piedmont Park and the Botanical Garden were so nice. We’ll be back here, for sure!

Dear Rebecca,

Thank you so much for you lovely comments on your Stonehurst Place stay! I love that you felt torn in leaving Stonehurst to see Atlanta’s many sights and of course the nearby and oh-so-walkable Piedmont Park and Atlanta Beltline! I have to confess I feel the same way at Stonehurst … I just want to grab a book and curl up on a sofa in the Music Room or Sleeping porch to read and relax. Paul and Lori sure make relaxing easy with their Southern Hospitality, one of our hallmarks and the reason we get up every day and work at Stonehurst … to provide a superior guest experience! I hope you signed up for our Stash Hotel Rewards program to start earning points when you stay with us and other Stash distinctive properties; soon you’ll have enough points for a complimentary night!

Thank you also for taking the time out of what is probably an action-packed schedule to shout out about your Stonehurst Place experience; it means the world to us.

Hope to host you again soon! Until then, many thanks and warm regards,

Barb
