The Martyn House

Reviewed 4 November 2011

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and treated very well through out our stay. It was very relaxing. It was very cold in fact the coldest it has been since they opened but we were kept warm in the tent by the heater and outside by the warm fire pit. The breakfast's were unbelievable, very fresh, tasty and felt like it was gourmet and plenty of it both mornings. We did not do the dinners since we were out and about but the other guest said we really missed out on some great food. Next time we hope to do dinner. Enjoyed meeting other people and sitting around the firepit and having a great time. The time of year was beautiful with the fall colors, very nice.

We had the best time Glamping. The "tents" are comfortable and homey. We went in late October when it was fairly chilly at night, and the heaters in the tents were more than adequate to keep us toasty warm. JoAnn and Rick are amazing people, talented artists, and remarkable hosts. We went during a Farm to Table dinner and that was awesome as well. The other Glampers were great people and we made new friends. The surrounding area was great for shopping, horseback riding, and just relaxing. We are already planning our next trip!

Room Tip: There are 4 spectacular "glamping" tents. They are all wonderful.

The Martyn House was a perfect weekend getaway for celebrating our anniversary. It's just a delightful place with wonderful hosts who have set up the most charming place in the woods of North GA. We loved our glamour tent with king-size bed and feather quilt, bathroom and front porch. There was a nice campfire at night where we sat and got to know the other couples staying there. A good homemade breakfast and a really great farm to table dinner on Saturday. It was a perfect weekend and one that I highly recommend.

Room Tip: All four tents are wonderful.

This was our 41st wedding anniversary, we'll never forget it, it was great! Our hosts were warm and personable, and great cooks, to boot. Our fellow glampers were equally friendly, resulting in amiable social interaction. I would recommend the Martyn House to thinks out of the box.

There's no other way to describe our stay at the Martyn House other than magical! It was almost hypnotizing...the atmosphere, music, lighting, food, and company. I could've stayed for weeks on end! It was renewing, calming, and just what we needed on a quiet weekend away together! Wonderful experience...we'll definitely be back!

Truly a unique experience...the "tent rooms" are as comfortable as any hotel...with bathrooms, sitting area, comfortable beds...run by two wonderful, warm, fun hosts who are also working artists. The tents have their own porch and are decorated in fun fabrics.
The food was wonderful. The setting is open, peaceful and beautiful. And the tents were cool with just a fan in spite of the high temps. The whole experience was wonderful...
