Our experience "glamping" here was mediocre at best. While the location and tents were beautiful, the interior left much to be desired. The edge of the bottom of our tent had about a half inch of mildew and the whole tent had that same faint moldy smell during our stay. We were also disappointed by the plastic wine glasses that...

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... More

We signed up for the romance package as a 50th birthday gift for my wife. We are a happily married couple, but sometimes with our busy lives, children, jobs, family and other interests, there is a tendency to lose touch with the most important person in our lives. This was the perfect place to re-connect. Technically, it is camping but... More

This business now has an espresso bar and bistro with excellent coffee and charming atmosphere located right in downtown Ellijay. Order from blackboard when you arrive and food is delivered to your table. Green and blue Mason jars if you'd like to serve yourself lemon water from the dispenser. Did I mention that the coffee was very good!

This past weekend my mother and I stayed at The Martyn House for a mother/daughter weekend getaway. The "tents" are perfect for two. There is a large front porch for you to sit and enjoy the beautiful views. It was quite a cold weekend during our stay, but we were kept warm under the luxurious sheets and comforters that Joann...

I received a gift certificate as an anniversary gift, and I'll admit that I had doubts. If you're going to sleep on a fantastic bed and eat fantastic foo and enjoy peace and quiet, why not just go to a hotel? Answer: because this is so much cooler. And cozier. We went midweek and had the entire place to ourselves-... More

Truly one of the most unique and relaxing experiences of my life. Book a tent, pack a bag, and be prepared for a restful, insightful, peaceful weekend. We met some really cool folks and had a great time getting to know Rick and Joanne. Truly incredible people. I was really nervous, wondering if we would feel comfortable but no worries... More
