Stonehurst Place was owned by generations of the same Atlanta family for almost 100 years, and the fine bones of the original structure now house jewel-box pretty rooms and design treats like a vintage Hermès handbag collection. Owner Barb Shadomy’s sophisticated art collection is on display throughout the inn: look for works by Picasso, Candida Hoefer and Andy Warhol.
Interior designer Barb Shadomy’s artistic influence is everywhere. Each room has its own character: one recalls 1940’s Hollywood with quilted-satin bed covers, another is tucked into the eaves, with leaded glass windows, subway tiles and eye-popping nighttime views of Atlanta's cityscape.
Southern hospitality begins the minute you arrive: the innkeepers greet you with a refreshing drink.
The innkeeper whips up a gourmet breakfast every morning: green chili egg puffs, peach crêpes, and fresh sconces make regular appearances on the menu. Tea and coffee, fresh fruit and goodies like homemade chocolate cake and caramel shortbread bars are available all day, free of charge.
Stonehurst Place earns awards for environmental consciousness thanks in part to a full renovation with eco-friendly enhancements like solar thermal and potable water systems.
