Stonehurst Place - Atlanta, USA
About this Chic Retreat
Stonehurst Place is a small boutique hotel in midtown Atlanta, a few minutes from the Georgia Aquarium, the World Congress Centre and the Georgia Dome. Built in 1896, the house was passed down through the generations - finally passing into the hands of interior designer-owner Barb Shadomy who spent 14 months renovating the property to its former glory. Now a luxury bed & breakfast inn, this hidden gem has just 5 spacious rooms & suites, each with a classy mix of traditional and modern design and a great collection of art works and furnishings including some Warhol paintings and an original 1960's Eames chair. Stonehurst Place is a fully-certified EarthCraft inn and has been renovated as a green lodging using rainwater reclamation, purification, water recycling and solar energy throughout. This is a romantic hideaway in the city, the perfect place to relax in this vibrant metropolis.
There are 5 wonderfully-appointed rooms & suites at Stonehurst Place, each individually decorated, blending original features with stylish contemporary furnishings. The Farnsworth has a 1940s Hollywood sophistication, while the Gables Suite - formerly the nanny's room - has a contemporary style and all rooms have a luxurious and inviting finish. Rooms have either king or queen-size beds fitted with luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding and the Hinman Suite - named after the original owners who once slept there - has a four-poster king-size bed with a glamourous silk canopy. The Gables Suite can accommodate up to 4 guests with a sofa bed in the living room.
All rooms are en-suite and the Piedmont and Farnsworth rooms still have their original bath / showers. The Gables, Hinman and Master suite bathrooms have marble vanities and flooring, walk-in multi-head showers and heated bath floors and in addition, the Master and Hinman suites have romantic 2-person spa tubs. Two of the suites have separate sitting rooms and many of the rooms have open fireplaces where guests can relax in their smoking-style bath robes after a long soak. All the mod-cons are here too, with flat screen TVs with built-in DVD/CD players, complimentary WiFi, iPod docking stations and multi-device recharging station and the Master Suite has an integrated in-suite sound system. Further, all rooms have natural, biodegradable bath products, individual temperature controls, a carafe of purified water and art works that would be well-placed in a museum or gallery.
Stonehurst Place has beautifully manicured gardens, inspired by an English style, great to come back to after a day exploring the city. Garden enthusiasts can visit the nearby Atlanta Botanical Garden situated at the edge of Piedmont Park. This chic retreat is just minutes from the High Museum of Art, World of Coca Cola and the CNN Studios, so perfect for exploring Atlanta's highlights. Gone With the Wind fans can visit the apartment where Margaret Mitchell wrote her most famous novel. The famous Bobby Jones golf course is a short drive away and is open to the public and there are tennis courts close to Piedmont Park. Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza malls offer high-end shopping, just 15 minutes away and there are some lovely shops and galleries in Midtown. This chic retreat is also in easy reach of the theatres and concert halls and Caroline Holder, the Atlanta-native host, will help with anything you may wish to do.
Guests will be spoilt for choice at breakfast with berries & cream, organic honey, buttered cinnamon toast and frittatas among the treats on the menu, which varies day to day and season to season and uses the best organic produce, meats and dairy in the area. Everything is made-to-order with a menu of the day which can be modified to suit any preferences or needs, and breakfast is served in the dining room, in-room, or in the summer, out on the screened porch. Stonehurst Place serves snacks at any time, anywhere and a platter of appetisers is laid out every evening in the lounge, with cheese, crackers, hors d'oeuvres, freshly baked treats and fruit. Guests can help themselves to a hot drink at any time at the Sleeping Porch Coffee Bar. There are a great many restaurants in the area which your host will be happy to recommend.
