We recently stayed at the Shellmont for our 42nd anniversary. What a treat. The Inn is a gorgeous Victorian house restored by the owners. The scenery from the Veranda makes it hard to believe you're in the Heart of Atlanta. The location is perfect - walking distance to many restaurants, bars and entertainment. The Inn Keepers are delightful...very personable and... More

I stayed at the place with two of my friends while we were visiting Atlanta and we were there for about three nights and it turned out to be a really pleasant experience. The location is pretty good being in a nice little neighbourhood with enough options for bars and restaurants. The place itself serves a pretty nice breakfast enough... More

My husband and I stayed in the Tiffany room for 4 nights. The room was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the owners were very accommodating. The updated bathroom was luxurious while the bedroom retained the beauty of the past with antiques and tasteful decor. Access to the porch was another plus. We spent several hours enjoying coffee in the... More

I spent a week at the Shellmont Inn as I attended a conference in Atlanta in late June. I received a warm welcome and settled in pretty quickly. Once you get over the feeling of living in someone else's house - while they are there- you fit into the rhythm of the place. The Inn runs to the owners schedule... More

I would recommend the Shellmont Inn to anyone! We stayed in the Carriage House on our wedding night (back in 2011) and the night after before leaving for our honeymoon. We purchased the romance package and were extremely pleased with the presentation. We had wine by our Jacuzzi tub, rose petals spread down the path to the carriage house, a... More

I have always wanted just a small, family only intimate wedding. When I started looking for a place, I quickly found myself very frustrated in finding a venue that could be special and within my budget for a small ceremony until I found Shellmont Inn. I live in Atlanta, so trust me when I say the location is perfect. You... More

My daughter, a friend and her daughter, and I recently stayed at the Shellmont Inn for three nights. It was wonderful. Ed and Debbie made us feel like home - wonderful beds and showers, delicious breakfasts, scrumptuous chocolate covered strawberries, great recommendations for site seeing and restaurants. Sitting in a rocking chair on the veranda with my dearest friend could... More

What a find! This historic hotel with just a few rooms is situated in a leafy street just a couple of blocks away from the busy streets of midtown Atlanta. The rooms have been updated and were spacious and very well equipped. The owners were very helpful and advised us on what to do for our one day stay before... More

Debbie and Ed were amazing hosts and offered a wonderful place to stay and great recommendations of things to do and see during our visit to Atlanta. The breakfasts were delicious and filling and the ability have coffee upstairs right when we woke up was delightful, as were the dark chocolate covered strawberries every evening. We loved our stay and... More

We stayed three nights at this B&B. Debbie and Ed were wonderful hosts providing dining recommendations and local sites to visit. The breakfasts were very tasty and served on lovely china in the dining room. The afternoon snacks were very much appreciated. The evening chocolate covered strawberries were an extra special treat!
