We met 2 other couples for a friend reunion at The Martyn House. It was an amazing experience. First off, JoAnn and Rick are wonderful! They are incredibly hard-working and try very hard to make your stay extra special and fun. The tents are so beautiful and completely outfitted for your comfort. I especially enjoyed the mornings. It was so nice to wake up to a cool morning (even in July!) and sit out on our porch drinking french press coffee and listening to the still quiet of the woods. So refreshing! We planned our trip for one of the weekends that they were hosting a Farm to Table dinner. The dinner was amazing! The food was so good and JoAnn explained where the food had come from, locally and how it was prepared. We also had wine pairings with the dinner which were very good. It was fun eating and getting to know our fellow dinner guests. And it was especially nice that we were staying on the property, so all we had to do, after eating a fabulous meal and drinking lots of good wine was to make our way back to our tents and fall into our comfy beds to the sound of the cicadas in the woods. It was such a great time to get together with friends and experience this together. We laughed and laughed and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!! And it was just the right amount of "roughing it" for this spoiled city girl. We would definitely go back!
