Surrounded by family heirlooms and splendid period furniture, visitors at The McKinnon House can indulge in the graciousness of a by-gone era. Situated in the heart of historic Old Town Brunswick, this Victorian house was completed in 1902 as the residence of lumber magnate L.T. McKinnon and since 1993 has been the home of the innkeeper, Jo Miller. Visitors follow the white Georgia marble steps onto the front porch, to find a pair of double doors featuring delicate etching and stained glass. These authentic details have made McKinnon House one of the most photographed houses in Brunswick and earned it a role in the movie "Conrack".

Stonehurst Place
923 Piedmont Avenue NE
Atlanta, GA 30309

Built in 1896 by George Burch Hinman for his growing family, Stonehurst belonged to the same family for over 100 years and so retains much of the original layout, features and hardware. A contractor and entrepreneur during the late 19th century, Hinman built textile mills throughout the Southeast and owned cotton gin and furniture factories in Atlanta. Purchased from the family estate after the youngest daughter Ruth's death at Stonehurst in 1996, the home was a bed and breakfast for some years. Barb Shadomy purchased Stonehurst in 2007 after discovering it while in England studying interior and garden design. For 17 months Barb and her team of architects and contractors, specialists in historic and eco-friendly systems, renovated and restored the home and its gardens to standards set by the US National Park Service, the GA State Historic Preservation Office, Southface and EarthCraft House. Stonehurst Place is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

MAKE IT AN HISTORIC STAY is a human-curated, invitation only presentation of select historic lodging accommodations, including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges in the United States.

Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably significant to world history with respect to their architecture, engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging, excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.

Sadly, countless historically significant structures have been (and continue to be) lost forever.

Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.

When you travel, use to discover Historic Stays in and around your destination(s).
