I wanted a special place for a "staycation" birthday surprise for my girlfriend. We only had one night and I wanted it to be special. Boy did Stonehurst Place deliver. And more. From being greeted at the door by the innkeepers, to an hour of quiet reading a tea on the Sleeping porch before walking to a great mid-town restaurant for birthday dinner, Stonehurst Place continued to amaze both of us. The pearlescent wall color in our room and having the fireplace lit for our return made the night magical. No detail seemed too small, cookies and toffee on the sideboard and breakfronts stock with bottle water and wine ready for the enjoyment. Breakfast is cooked to order and includes a pot of press coffee and fresh fruit. We both looked at each other and said we felt as refreshed as if we'd spent a week. A true treasure for both it's guests and Atlanta. Gary & Peggy
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary weekend away at Maison Lavigne! Eileen is a fabulous, fun, and thoughtful hostess! Foodies, this is the B & B for you!! Delicious breakfast and culinary tips started our mornings! She even taught us the proper, French, way to prepare French press coffee...we've prepared it that way every day since we've been home! We stayed in the Bordeaux suite & it was lovely and romantic. The attention to detail and comfort is superb! By far, the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in away from home! We really loved lounging on the big, comfy, quiet porch with good wine both evenings. I would challenge any guest that hears Eileen's laugh drifting through the house to not laugh as well! I am sure we will be back!!
Came in late after my wedding and Eileen answered promptly to take us to our beautiful suite! Chose this location because it was close to the airport and it meant we would not have to travel much prior to our international honeymoon flight. It was a quick cab ride from the house to the airport and Eileen even offered for our car to stay at her house but we had someone take us to the B and B so we did not have a car! The house and grounds are quaint and charming! Eileen's culinary skills are fantastic and we had a delicious breakfast. We will return here anytime we have an early morning flight from the ATL airport. We will also return for a romantic weekend and to eat Eileen's cooking again!
I don't like big hotels so we were so happy to find this quaint place inside the city. Excellent parking, beautiful and clean rooms. We enjoyed our functioning fireplace in the room and the service was impeccable. Breakfast was lovely as well and we will definitely be back!
I had a business trip to Georgia recently and invited my wife to travel with me. It was around her birthday, so I arranged several little surprises for her; one was a stay at the Twelve Oaks. She loves Gone with the Wind, so was very excited about being at the B&B and staying in the Frankly Scarlett room. The breakfast was excellent. We arrived late, and the instructions for entering was clear and concise. The owners were very accommodating.
The charming Stonehurst Inn is in a convenient, midtown location, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and Piedmont Park. The attention to detail is amazing, the innkeepers very nice, welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable and the amenities are wonderful. Afternoon wine and snacks are lovely and breakfast always delicious and the presentation beautiful. Can't wait to go back!!
Awesome. My first stay definitely will not be my last. Room was cozy and romantic. Hostess is adorable and made me feel at home. We weren't rushed to leave and the food was great. I will definitely be going back and staying longer. Darrin......an oversatisfied guest
Stayed here only one night on a quick anniversary trip. We had booked the Eaves, adorable little room on the upper story with great windows and awesome decor. The entire inn is filled with wonderful little touches everywhere you look. Breakfast was very good as were the chocolate chip cookies that were available any time. Highly recommend Stonehurst Place!
My husband and I stayed for just one night for our anniversary and it was fabulous. The house was beautiful and the owners were wonderful. We will definitely stay again, we are even talking about making it a tradition for our anniversary. I have told all my friends and family about it and have recommended them stay.
I booked this B&B for my son and daughter in law's honeymoon. They were overwhelmed and loved every minute of it - from the beautiful room to the delicious food and the outstanding service. This was a great experience for them and they look forward to more visits to the area... Thank you, Eileen- it made their honeymoon really special!!!!!
We stayed at the Social Goat for two nights after an all day road trip from NJ for a wedding. Kristy could not have been kinder or more welcoming. Our 10 year old daughter loved the animals and breakfast was delicious. We can't wait to stay here again!
We would definitely recommend The Social Goat to those looking for a special place to stay in Atlanta! Kristy and Paul were very friendly and the house with all of its antiques was gorgeous. We loved waking up to the kitties every morning and being greeted by the goats, chickens and turkeys every time we pulled in to the driveway. And the fresh eggs from their chickens were a special treat in the mornings.
The description and pictures advertised were true to the experience. David was a great host. He made a hearty delicious breakfast. He was prompt and accommodating in responding to my requests. The neighborhood was quiet and convenient.The accomodations were charming and comfortable and clean. The bonus of a living room space was ideal for us to relax and we even enjoyed playing a good round of scrabble found on the bookshelf. For those who want to visit the city of Atlanta but don't want the big city high rise feel, this is the place! It felt like home away from home with perks. First on my list to stay when I return to Atlanta.
I had a great time staying at the Greenwood Bed and Breakfast. The location was perfect. I had easy access to the Atlanta Beltway Line, which is a fantastic paved path for biking and walking (both of which I did!). Though it is convenient to many wonderful shops and restaurants, it is on a very quiet street. I can't say enough about the hospitality I received from the Owner, David. He was very friendly and accommodating. He even made sure to cook me vegan breakfasts (which were delicious!). This place is a real gem and I would highly recommend it to people looking for comfort, style, convenience, and peace and quiet in one of Atlanta's best areas!
The breakfast was amazing each morning. It was fresh, homemade food. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are available to help you find things to do, share about the history of the home, or anything else you need. Each evening there is a turn down service while you enjoy some wine and cheese. It was a very relaxing stay and we enjoyed all of it.
Descubre la fascinante historia de Atlanta
Atlanta es la capital del estado de Georgia, en los Estados Unidos, y también la ciudad más poblada del mismo. Fundada en el año 1837 en la intersección de dos líneas de ferrocarril, a día de hoy es una de las ciudades más visitadas de los Estados Unidos, recibiendo más de 35 millones de visitantes cada año. La industria turística de esta ciudad es muy diversa y hay numerosas atracciones tanto al aire libre como cubiertas. Para disfrutar de todas ellas, nada mejor que alojarse en un económico bed and breakfast en Atlanta, para estar cerca del centro de la ciudad, o en una casa rural en Atlanta, situada más a las afueras, lo que te dará la oportunidad de contemplar en tus trayectos el espectacular paisaje urbano de la ciudad.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Atlanta
Al contrario de lo que ocurre con otras ciudades del Sur de los Estados Unidos, Atlanta decidió en su día no mantener el antiguo estilo arquitectónico sureño, por lo que en la actualidad se puede contemplar aquí un panorama urbano con grandes edificios de estilo moderno y postmoderno.
Especialidades culinarias en Atlanta
Como ocurre en muchas otras ciudades capitales, la gastronomía está formada más por “tendencias” y por la cocina propia de otros países o regiones que por platos típicos locales. Aún así, en esta ciudad se pueden degustar algunos de los platos más tradicionales de la cocina del Sur de los Estados Unidos, como el pollo frito, los guisantes secos, el puré de patatas, el pan de maíz, lo tomates verdes fritos o el julepe de menta.
Eventos destacados en Atlanta
En Atlanta se celebran eventos y festivales durante todo el año, especialmente durante la primavera y el otoño. Destacan especialmente el Festival Dogwood de Atlanta, un festival de artes y artesanía que se celebra cada mes de abril en el parque Piedmont, y el Festival de Cine de Atlanta, que se celebra también durante este mes. En el mes de septiembre, comenzando con la fiesta del Día del Trabajo en septiembre, se celebran una serie de eventos entre los que se encuentran festivales de música al aire libre.
El clima en Atlanta
El clima en Atlanta es subtropical húmedo, con estaciones muy bien definidas: veranos calurosos y húmedos (con una temperatura mínima de 22 °C durante el mes de julio) e inviernos suaves (con mínimas por encima de 0 °C en el mes de enero, el mes más frío). Con un aire urbano que podría recordar al de Houston, a pesar de tener un paisaje muy distinto al que podría esperarse, la hospitalidad sureña de esta ciudad, formada por una diversa mezcla de culturas, se hará notar desde el primer instante, y te sentirás bien recibido en todo momento.
