I have yet to have the good luck to set foot in Atlanta, but when I do, I'm hoping to book a stay at Stonehurst Place. This gorgeous art-filled 19th century mansion in Atlanta's historic Midtown neighborhood offers everything I love in a travel destination. From luxurious linens to beautiful décor, and from eco-modern features to delicious meals, this bed and breakfast may make you reconsider everything you previously thought about B&Bs. Owned by generations of the same family for years, the inn beautifully melds period details such as lion's head moldings with high-end electronics and modern furniture. Featuring five rooms and suites boasting an elegant, chic appeal and rooms and hallways dotted with artwork including original Andy Warhols, this is a truly special place.
What's more, Stonehurst Place is also an eco pioneer in travel lodging. In 2008, it won the prestigious EarthCraft Home and Southface 2008 Renovation Project of the Year award for features including a modern rainwater harvesting system, 10 solar thermal panels that heat hot water used throughout the inn, and a greywater recycling system, among many other green features. Take a tour of this beautiful property, and then book your stay at Stonehurst Place for your next trip to Atlanta!
