Shellmont Inn is a very nice bed and breakfast located in a good area of midtown, easy walking to many sites and restaurants. The inn is decorated in a Victorian style, a little dark, but it is very clean and pleasant. I am happy we stayed in this area instead of downtown. Not recommended for children or teenagers.

Very convenient location within walking distance from CNN, Coca-C etc. Friendly family caring and nursing around you. Very old place but kept in full working condition. Not suitable for kids gives it an extra surplus when you want 'adult-time' (especially appreciated after a visit to Coca Cola).

The Shellmont is a meticulously restored and majestic 19th-century mansion that now serves as a first-rate bed and breakfast. It retains its Victorian character without seeming fusty. The innkeepers, Debbie and Ed McCord, maintain the Shellmont with impressive attention to detail: everything you might want is provided, and they keep the inn spotless. Breakfasts are varied and delicious. The Shellmont... More

I was late booking a room for a conference, and though above our budget, my wife and I decided to stay at the Shellmont and walk to the downtown. Excellent decision!
