We only stayed one night at this beautiful B&B, but we will definitely return for a longer stay very soon. This gorgeous and beautifully maintained property is in a lovely neighborhood in Midtown Atlanta. Walking distance to restaurants, bars, etc. but on a quiet block amidst historic homes. We stayed in the Master Suite which was incredible and had all the amenities one would need or hope for! The 3 course breakfast was delicious and overall hospitality top notch. This one checks all the boxes for a luxurious and relaxing getaway. Looking forward to our next stay already!
We spent one night at Stonehurst and loved everything about it! I wish we could have stayed longer. From the moment that John greeted us and we were shown to our stylish room in the carriage house, we knew we had made a great choice. The grounds that surround the house are carefully tended, and once you enter the house, you are drawn in by the tasteful furnishings and impressive art collection. You feel like you are staying in a good friend's home (if that friend is an interior designer with impeccable taste and a world class art collection). We stayed in the Fowler Suite, and had a relaxing, restful night. Highlights: -Checking in to our room and finding cookies and a personalized note welcoming us -Incredibly comfortable bed -A luxurious soaking tub in the midst of an elegant and modern bathroom -Friendly and knowledgeable general manager, John Cardona -Delicious breakfast -Wonderful conversation with other guests, the inn owner, and inn manager at breakfast -Easy walk to High Museum of Art and Piedmont Park We are already talking about another stay at Stonehurst. We visit family in Georgia regularly, and fly in to Atlanta. This is the perfect place for us to relax before or after these visits. Forget large and impersonal hotels. Stay in this unique and gorgeous spot and you'll wish you could move in!…
This is my fifth time here at Stonehurst Place and it doesn’t disappoint. Service is top notch and professional and consistent. John and Grace are amazing. This isn’t their first rodeo. The amazing service you get comes with over 50 years of experience in hospitality. Super down to earth people who love what they do. Whether you are rolling solo (which I did this trip) or with someone (which I typically do with my wife), it is a perfect in town bed and breakfast to get away for a time. Although it is in the heart of Atlanta, it definitely does not feel like it. It is quiet but very accessible to all the amazing restaurants and experiences Atlanta had to offer. Now, let’s talk about the 3-course breakfast……Wow!!!! This is the only time I’ve had 3-course breakfasts. Simply amazing! Fresh homemade courses that will change your life. :) See pics below. Can’t say enough about this place. We will be back very soon!…
My friend and I spent 2 nights at this beautiful home. It is located in Midtown Atlanta on a street of older charming homes that was within walking distance of several decent restaurants from which we felt safe walking back from after dinner. The place itself sits on beautiful grounds with well attended garden beds. There is a wonderful front porch as well as a screened in porch in the back of the house. The decor is sophisticated and warm and inviting. As soon as we walked in,we could tell it was a good choice. My room was on the main floor. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean. I actually slept unusually well both nights. There is a delightful common space on the second floor where someone could relax as well as a wonderful living space on the main floor with amazing artwork and lighting fixtures! I was really appreciative of many of the pieces in the home. The place is done in really good taste (just my opinion of course). While we were there, the innkeepers referred to this as a boutique hotel but I don't really agree with that description. I think it is more of a sophisticated B&B. We were there during the week and we knew that our breakfast was going to be a 2 course gourmet breakfast as opposed to the the 3 courses they serve on the weekends. While the food we had was very well prepared and delicious , the portion size was small, almost meager. My friend and I are not big eaters but I think we both expected more heartiness to the meal especially since we were in the South. I think we both could have used that 3rd course if we were there over the a weekend. The innkeepers who manage the property were very helpful via email with recommendations prior to our arrival. We were greeted by Grace and shown around. She is informative and precise but over the course of the 2 days we were there, I got the sense she may suffering a bit from burn out. She was kind and polite but it was not coming from her heart. My friend and I both hoped we didn't need to call her for anything because she seemed eager to get the job done and go home. But she is an excellent cook and an even better baker as she provides a delicious baked good in your room each afternoon. My suggestion is to offer that baked good with the breakfast. Overall, this place is better than any other B&B I have stayed at in terms of accommodations and the food was very good. There's just not enough of it especially if you are a big eater. But I would definitely rebook the place if I ever find myself headed back to Atlanta.…
I love to stay at nice hotels but this Bed and Breakfast exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were large, extremely comfortable, and well appointed. The bathroom soaking tub was extravagant enough but then there was an amazing multi head shower. The grounds and garden was a nice private oasis in the middle of the city. There are great restaurants within walking distance or even a short drive. But the highlight was definitely John and Grace. Their hospitality, knowledge, and breakfast offerings were worth the trip alone. I feel I have made new friends in Atlanta and can't wait to stay with them again. And although I feel this way they also gave us plenty of space for privacy. It was the perfect weekend!
Lovely property and great Southern hospitality from John and Grace. Really enjoyed our stay. Ideal location for local amenities and transport into downtown. Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance.
Beautifully maintained retreat with history and character. Centrally located with the gardens, beltwalk and market close by. Johnny and Grace have a wonderful attention to detail and hospitality. We would return to Atlanta just to stay here again.
We had high expectations for Stonehurst Place and these expectations were easily met and surpassed. Warm welcomes and gracious hospitality. John and Grace Cardona are the epitomes of innkeepers at the peak of their profession. Grace is an extraordinary chef and baker. John is a welcoming and delightful host. We appreciated their terrific restaurant recommendations and ideas for other places to visit in Atlanta. Highly recommended!
We stayed at Stonehurst Place last week for a reunion with our long time military friends and had the most wonderful experience there. This was the perfect place to stay. We had room to visit in the living rooms, screen porch and the front porch. The bedrooms were immaculate, nicely furnished with every convenience and amenity. John and Grace are the epitome of hospitality. The gourmet breakfasts were delicious. I can't think of a need or want that wasn't met. If you're going to Atlanta this is the place to stay!
Everywhere you look, attention to detail is evident in this beautifully decorated and lovingly maintained historic home. The hosts, John and Grace, are warm and attentive without being intrusive. The gourmet breakfast is a highlight. The food is amazing and the presentation is excellent. The historic house dates to 1896 and is elegant without being pretentious. The porches (front and rear) are welcoming so bring your Kindle and spend some time enjoying the fresh air. The grounds are immaculately maintained. Easy walking distance to dozens of restaurants and Piedmont Park.
