Circa 1891. This grand Victorian showplace derives its name from two distinctions: the shell motif embossed on the exterior bay and portico and its prominent location on Piedmont Avenue. Architect W.T. Downing further carried out the shell theme with carved wooden shells, bows and garlands. Five panels of stained glass two-stories high accentuate the foyer and are thought to have been designed by Tiffany & Co. Victorian wallpapers and appropriate antiques add to the inn's romantic ambience. It is in the National Register and is a City of Atlanta Landmark building.Publicity and Awards: North Georgia Living, June 2010 Issue Selected as Victorian Magazine Christmas Issue "Favorite Things", November/December 2009 Atlanta Journal Constitution, CNN Travel Channel Film Location for Movies Publix July 4th TV Commercial, HBO Movie - Traveling Man with John Lithgow HBO Movie - Leader of the Band.Location: City/Urban and Midtown/Downtown Atlanta.
