We have been going to Atlanta for years but never stayed downtown. This historic inn was just what we were looking for. Perfectly located within walking distance to the park, Coke, and Aquarium. The owners were very very nice and knowledgeable. There were so many special touches to the rooms, it would be hard to list them all. Turn down... More

My husband and I chose the Shellmont Inn on our vacation to Atlanta. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Debbie and Ed were the perfect hosts. Debbie remembered my husband did not like eggs and without asking she prepared an alternate breakfast for him. Their recommendations for tours and meals were excellent. The Shellmont Inn is perfectly located, within... More

My husband and I don't get too many romantic getaways. So when we do I like to find something that is truly unique and also more adult oriented. What better place than a historic Inn in Atlanta. I actually didn't know how fantastic of an place this was going to be, until we were already there and greeted by Debbie,... More

Knowing i'd be spending 12 hour days at a tradeshow i wanted somewhere i could "come home" to each evening and Ed & Debbie at The Shellmot exceeded my expectation. Between the overall ambiance (this isn't some dusty, old house), delicious breakfasts, wonderful conversation and delightful turn-down service, Debbie went above and beyond by accommodating my schedule. She provided me... More

My wife and I stayed at the Shellmont Inn for our anniversary. The inn is a beautifully decorated Victorian home with marvelous landscaping and plenty of places to sit and relax. It is located conveniently in the middle of Atlanta, but in a quiet neighborhood that is very peaceful. The rooms are nicely decorated. The bathrooms have modern fixtures while... More

The Shellmont is an interesting Victorian building in a location that is perfect for walking to various good nearby restaurants. The room was spacious, dark and comfortable with reading lights on each side of the bed, TV, water bottles, a modern bath with a whirlpool and a substantial shower. Coffee available at the first floor landing nook just outside the... More

I always enjoy assisting our guest in creating that Perfect Birthday Getaway. It was fun each day hearing what was your favorite attraction, activity or restaurant from the day before. We are looking forward to your return when the temperatures are a little warmer and the gardens are in bloom. Thank you for the lovely comments. More

Beautiful old mansion well restored. Elegant and well appointed rooms. Gracious and personable inkeepers. Delicious homemade breakfast every morning; something different every day. Right in the middle of the city and close to everything. Safe environment on the streets in this area. No trouble parking.
