Unbelievable

My husband came home for R&R from Afghanistan and he flew in to Atlanta so I decided to book a room at a Bed and Breakfast. I did a search and came across this beautiful B&B and fell in love with it. Upon our arrival, I was greeted by a wonderful staff who was helpful and very friendly. I took a tour of the B&B and every room was to perfection. We booked the Hinman Suite and words can not describe how beautiful it was decorated. The bedding was beautiful and the sheets were the softest I have every felt. It was like sleeping on a bed of cotton and I had to purchase a set to take home with me and the price was so reasonable I was in shock. The bathroom was incredible and was everything they described. My husband and I will definitely return to Stonehurst.

Awesome one kind of bed~n~breakfast

I surprised my husband by reserving Gable suite at Stonehurst Place for our 16th anniversity getaway. The cat really got his tongue. We fell in love with that place! Very relaxing! The shower was one of a kind! Bed was great..slept like a baby! Their breakfast was just perfect. It's close by to Atlantic Station and Piedmont Park. You could see the city of Atlanta from the window where we stayed.

A Romantic Engagement to Remember

I had planned on asking my girlfriend to marry me for a while. After looking at a LOT of B&Bs and other places in Atlanta, I decided on Stonehurst Place. I made the right decision. Once we got to the inn, I was immediately greeted by Rebecca (who was on innkeeper duty at the time) and shown around the house (luckily for us, no one else was checked in at the time so we got to see all of the rooms). We were offered cake and beverages, shown the amenities, and finally led to our room (The Gables). We looked around at the beautiful leaded glass windows in the sitting room and collapsed on the bed... which was DEFINITELY one of the most comfortable beds that I have ever been on. I didn't want to leave it! The shower was also really cool (I've never been in a three-headed shower before) and the whole place was quiet and above all relaxing. After I popped the question (in front of the big window in the sitting room of our suite) we slept well. Breakfast the next day was great, too... the perfect amount of food. A delicious quiche, parfait, biscuit,, and bit of sausage served with coffee and juice. All in all, I can't wait to go back! This was one of the best lodging experiences I've had in my life!

Beautiful rooms with fireplaces, and spacious & luxurious bathrooms. Ideal place to appreciate relaxing in a beautiful & artistic atmosphere. Every detail is taken care of and thought of. Very close to Piedmont park and the city museums

Best of the Best - Luxurious!

We have stayed at some of the best bed and breakfasts in the country, and Stonehurst is the one by which we compare them all. We loved the shower with multiple heads, the big bath tub, heated floors, soft robes, and comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious and presented beautifully. The whole place is worth spending time walking around and enjoying the way it has been decorated - a unique place that is perfect for someone who wants to stay in a luxurious setting and enjoy great service. So many bed and breakfasts look like grandma's house... which is fine, but not Stonehurst - the elegance of Stonehurst combines such lovely design aspects, both modern and vintage, that both of us felt very comfortable and pampered. This would be a great place to get married! The location is great - in a safe and pretty neighborhood, just off the main drag, so it feels "tucked away" but it is really right in the middle of anywhere you'd want to be in the Atlanta area. As far as bed and breakfasts go, this is our favorite. We love that is has eco-friendly, green aspects, too. There are also cute hidden treasures like a collection of pop up books and amazing original artwork everywhere. For the price, Stonehurst is a great deal. We've stayed at more expensive places that don't compare in the least. This is really the best of the best!

Beautiful!

This was the first time my husband and I had ever stayed in a B&B. I'm a little nervous to stay at another after spending the night at Stonehurst. I'm afraid anywhere else would be just a trip to grandma's house. The house is decorated beautifully. It's contemporary but it has all the character of a home from the late 1800's. The room we stayed in (Hinman Suite) was incredible. The curtains, the bedding, the fireplace, the furnishings, the bathroom (oh the bathroom!) were all beautiful, stylish and romantic. The suite was very well furnished - ipod docking station, heated floors in the bathroom, robes, towel warmer, huge tub, enormous shower...the list goes on and on. The breakfast prepared by Trenell was so good. It was exactly what I'd hoped for! I will certainly recommend this place for any friends or family who are coming to town.

An Absolute Must Stay in Atlanta!!

I have lived in Atlanta for 25 years, and travel extensively all across the world. I never thought I could stay in the city I live in and feel like I am in a different place. Stonehurst Place is truly a magical getaway that will provide the rest and relaxation you need, as well as unparalleled accomodations and generous hospitality. The historic home bodes both charm and comfort while the amazing upgrades exude modern luxury. We stayed in the Hinman suite which offered a quaint space with authentic hardwoods, a plush canopy bed, a fire place, and a bathroom to kill for. The all marble and Corian bathroom featured heated floors, a large spa tub, double sinks, and a never seen before all white Corian shower with 6, yes 6 shower heads. Fresh flowers were located in the shower and bath and wonderful bath products were offered as well. At check in, Trenell, the inn keeper, greeted us and later treated us to a home cooked breakfast of pancakes and maple syrup, sausage, fresh fruit, and fresh juices and coffee. All around the inn you can find private settings with TV's, books, cocktails, etc. The front and back porch are perfect intimate settings for relaxing or sipping on a cocktail. We were fortunate enough to spend the evening with the owner who has designed almost every aspect of the environmentally green, and incredibly chic B&B. We are so thankful that we found the Stonehurst Inn, even though we only live 20 minutes away from midtown Atlanta. This truly is one of the most precious places I have stayed in all of my extensive travels and it couldn't have been a better place to spend my husband's 30th birthday. We will be back and will cherish our memories there.

Romantic Luxury

We attended a wedding at Stonehurst. The location was wonderfully convenient – only a few blocks from the Fox Theatre, Downtown restaurants and night life. The location was surprisingly quiet for downtown. After check-in and a tour of the home, the Innkeeper provided us with a glass of wine and settled us on the screened porch to relax among the trees, flowers and water feature creating a calming and serene environment before our evening out. Our luxurious room was a treasure of artwork, stylish décor, wonderful bedding and fluffy pillows and mattress you wanted to sink in to and stay. Attentive service was so unlike our previous B&B experiences -- NO sense of staying in grandma’s house with hovering owners. The Stonehurst staff strikes a perfect balance between the comfort and coziness of a B&B with the luxury and services of a fine hotel: Wifi, concierge services to find downtown attractions and ticketing information, breakfast tailored to our preferences. The nice touches such as the Innkeeper’s attentativness in switching the lovely china coffee cups for large stoneware mugs to accommodate our breakfast preferences made the experience delightful. The walk in two person shower adds an extra element of fun to the stay.

Marvelous Stay at Stonehurst Place

This past October (2008) my wife and I had our wedding and reception at Stonehurst Place, as well as our rehearsal party the preceding evening. I could not have asked for a better location, nor for a better experience. The location is absolutely beautiful, from the gardens outside where we held our ceremony, to each and every room in the house. The decor and art are unique and wonderful, and the substantial group of interior designers on our guest list very much enjoyed going from room to room to take it all in. The gardens around the house provided the perfect spot for us to have our ceremony. The accommodations, from bedrooms to bath, were luxurious. And the innkeeper and staff went above and beyond to make sure that we and our guests, both those staying with us over the weekend at the house as well as those coming for the events over the course of the weekend, were well taken care of, well fed, and that everything with our ceremony and reception went smoothly. It was tremendous for us to have our celebration in such a beautiful, historic establishment, being taken care of as well as we were.

A MUST STAY Bed and Breakfast!

Stonehurst Place is fabulous! From the moment we walked in, we knew we had arrived at a very special inn. The décor is a feast for the eyes and the soul…beauty and comfort everywhere we looked. We were greeted by the innkeeper, Trenell, who is so warm and friendly, yet knows when to give you your space. Drinks were served every evening with delightful little goodies to eat and then in the morning, more delicious food for breakfast served on lovely china place settings beside the dining room fireplace. And our room was amazing! We stayed in the Master Suite, warmed ourselves by the fire, played in the water (in our bathroom with HUGE shower, multiple shower heads and spa tub), and went to sleep between luxurious sheets on a mattress that felt incredible. I wanted to stay forever!This inn is a MUST STAY place. Give yourself a treat the next time you‘re in Atlanta. I know I’ll be back as much as possible.

Eco conscious romance

Review of Stonehurst Inn, Atlanta, Georgia Tucked in a delightful neighborhood, surrounded by wonderful restaurants, this restored bed and breakfast is enchanting! We do not often go intown for romantic adventures, but our evening at Stonehurst Inn may change that habit. This Inn is remarkable in many ways but most notably because it was restored with modern energy saving techniques. As we enjoyed the six headed shower, we laughed that even in drought stricken Georgia, we did not need to feel guilty. This is because the water is reclaimed rainwater that has been treated to be crystal fresh. The water was heated by solar panels too! Our room was cozy with incredible linens and a superbly comfortable bed. We awoke to a tasty breakfast and truly enjoyed our stay.

16th Anniversary

We didn’t get there until 8:00 after depositing the boys for the evening but it was great. We walked to dinner at Nikimotos which was fabulous as always. Seeing the skyline of Atlanta as we walked was almost surreal. It is such a pedestrian friendly neighborhood. The Master Suite is luxurious but then we love all of Stonehurst. The things you have done has created such a warm feeling. And the bed – My wife and I agree is the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. The sheets, the pillows, the blankets were delightful. We watched the movie “August Rush” which if you haven’t seen, please do. Saturday morning we actually felt slightly guilty in the enormous shower but only because not many have the opportunity to shower in treated rainwater heated by the sun. The breakfast was fantastic and beautifully served. You and all of your support people have done a great job restoring this wonderful place which we will continually recommend. And Tree is the most warm and gracious hostess/innkeeper you could have ever found. She really explained all of the Solar water heating, greywater recycling, rain harvesting and water filtration features of Stonehurst like an expert. It really shows that she cares deeply about you and Stonehurst. We have a niece getting married in Piedmont Park around memorial day. Stonehurst will be a perfect place for out of town guests before the wedding and possibly for a honeymoon night for our niece and her betroth. We will be in touch with Tree. Warmest regards,
