ATLANTA - April 18, 2019 - PRLog -- Stonehurst Place wins coveted Number One Inn spot when iconic Southern Living magazine surveys readers determine the best destinations in the region.

"We're thrilled to be recognized as the South's top inn by the true experts – travelers who shared their experience by voting in Southern Living magazine's Best of the South survey," said Barb Shadomy, interior designer and owner of Stonehurst Place. "We owe a deep gratitude to our treasured guests for their votes that confirm Stonehurst Place's appeal to travelers is our unique combination of contemporary interiors set against the backdrop of this renovated historic mansion house, combined with sumptuous gourmet breakfasts and the thoughtful service of our incredible staff who help guests enjoy an authentic, local experience."

The reader survey was developed by the editors at Southern Living in association with a third-party research firm, GBH Insights, and was made available online from July to October 2018.  The more than 65,000 responses included votes for Inns, Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, Bars, Barbecue Joints, Chefs, Cities, Food Cities, Food Towns and Small Towns.

Stonehurst Place, member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection, was home base for Michael Dubin, famed Dollar Shave Club founder, and his family during their 2018 Atlanta visit for his commencement speech at alma mater, Emory University.

"I stay at Stonehurst Place because innkeeper Grace Cardona's breakfast is outstanding, the property is incredible, and the rooms are full of interesting details," said Michael Dubin. "I can see why they were voted the South's Best Inn by Southern Living Magazine."
