“Great Stay”

Pin It

Had a wonderful 2night stay at Stonehurst Place. Lovely home, gracious hosts, Paul and Laurie. The setting is very relaxing while being conveniently located in Midtown, Atlanta. Delicious breakfast and lots of drinks and snacks for occasional eating during the day.
Would stay again if we find ourselves in Atlanta.

“A wonderful first anniversary”

Pin It

My wife and I stayed here for two nights celebrating our first anniversary of marriage together and we could not have picked a better place! The hosts Paul and Lori were absolutely the best people you can find and the home is gorgeous. A lot of care to detail has been taken in about every aspect from the room (Hinman Suite) to the different sitting areas. Plus, it is right beside Midtown so everything is easily accessible but yet quite enough where you feel as though you are out in a more rural area. Overall a great experience for a first anniversary.

“A Wonderful Place”

Pin It

My husband and I stayed in the beautiful Hinman Suite after our wedding in Atlanta. It was the perfect place to start married life together! Stonehurst Place is both quiet and relaxing. We had breakfast the morning before we left…which consisted of biscuits and fruit with an entree of pecan waffles with peppered bacon. Yum. Paul, the innkeeper, was so personable making conversation with all of the guests and even taking pictures of us to help document our stay. I have grown up in Atlanta and would recommend Stonehurst Place as the number one place to stay in-town. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

Dream Cars at Atlanta High Museum

Pin It

High Museum Dream Cars logoDream Cars

Do you have a dream car? Is there a car you’ve wanted for as long as you can remember? Is it vintage, or maybe still on the showroom floor? Are you looking for speed, or is it all about appearance?  A visit to the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA could be just what you need to rev those fantasies back to life.  And getting there?  It’s just a quick five-minute drive from our art-filled bed and breakfast in Atlanta, Stonehurst Place.

Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas

Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas” is the latest exhibit at the High Museum, and it runs until September 7, 2014. The exhibition features 17 concept cars by Ferrari, Bugatti, General Motors, and Porsche.  According to the museum’s webpage, “Dream Cars will feature cars from the early 1930s to the 21st century that pushed the limits of imagination and foreshadowed the future of design. The exhibition will pair conceptual drawings, patents and scale models with realized cars, demonstrating how their experimental designs advanced ideas of progress and changed the automobile from an object of function to a symbol of future possibilities. “

Atlanta’s Stonehurst Place

Stonehurst Place Innkeeper Paul Worrell puts it more simply. “There’s a WOW factor that’s indescribable for anyone who has an appreciation of cars.”  When guests inquire about sites to see in Atlanta, Paul is quick to point them to the Dream Cars exhibit.

Paul’s favorite, the Chrysler (Ghia) Streamline X ‘Gilda’, caught his eye because it was designed and built in the year he was born. For this car, Chrysler partnered with Italian firm CarrozzeriaGhia and designer Giovanni Savonuzzi, who nicknamed it “Gilda” after actress Rita Hayworth’s character in the famous 1946 film.  (Fun fact, an original silver gelatin Columbia Pictures publicity still of Rita Hayworth as ‘Gilda’ hangs in the Farnsworth bedroom at Stonehurst Place!)

But 16 others cars battle for being a favorite with Paul, including the 1942 L’Œuf électrique (Electric Egg), the 33-inch tall 1970 Lancia (Bertone) Stratos HF Zero, and the 2010 Porsche 918 Spyder Concept Car.

Getting to Dream Cars

Tickets to the Dream Cars exhibit can be purchased here, after booking a dreamy night in Atlanta at Stonehurst Place Bed & Breakfast.

“Charming”

Pin It

It’s a very nice set-up in a location that leaves a little to be desired. Something tells me the location will evolve very positively in coming years to complete the locale. Enjoy the Stonehurst while you can. It’s on its way up.

“The BEST B&B in the ATL!”

Pin It

There really are no words for the beauty contained within Stonehurst Place. Though nestled right in the heart of Midtown, stepping through the doors feels like an immediate escape from the sounds and business of the city. Stonehurst is the epitome of city luxury at its finest. Lori and Paul are two of the most outstanding hosts one could ask for. The rooms are BEAUTIFUL. The food is DELICIOUS. What more could one ask for? We will definitely be back soon!

B&B Gem near Piedmont Park

Pin It

Everything about this little gem was magical. It’s definitely not your typical B&B. The whole style of the place is incredibly cool and artistic. Paul and Lori who run it are amazing. The food, the tour, the attention to detail is impeccable. Tons of space for lounging with interesting books and art everywhere. The master suite is to die for. And Piedmont Park right down the street is breathtaking. Bring your running shoes!
