The Stone Mountain Inn opened to the public on May 5, 1965, with 100 seasonal employees and room rates that started at just $16.50 per night. At that time, it was owned by the Berlo Division - operated Inn and managed by Gladieuxite Harry Grindle.  The carving on the side of Stone Mountain was just getting underway as a memorial for those who served in the Civil War. Throughout its evolution, this architectural gem has retained its’ original exterior structure together with the impressive grand spiral staircase, which still adorns the main lobby today and continues to draw sighs from those passing by. 

The writers of Southern Living Magazine recently named Stone Mountain Park as one of their favorite “see a sunset” spots in the South. The 3,200-acre park showcases an abundance of recreational and leisure activities such as the Mountaintop Skylift, giving passengers an 825-foot climb to the top of the mountain, offering a panoramic view of the Georgia Landscape and a stone carving larger than Mt. Rushmore; Crossroads, the 1870’s replica of a Southern town, where families can meet fascinating characters, crafters and the townspeople who still work the old trades and dress in styles of the past; and a range of kids’ favorites including Treehouse Challenge, The Great Barn, or a Huck Finn adventure on the “Scarlett O’Hara” authentic riverboat.  Four waterslides including the Mountain Screamer and the Southern Pipeline make for cool summer fun for the entire family. 

Stone Mountain Inn is an ideal setting for a quiet vacation, or an important executive meeting. Play on one of two championship golf courses or take a swing at the world-class 16-court tennis complex that served as the venue for the 1996 Summer Olympics.
