We had a nice stay here and stayed in one of the tents. That was actually an adventure. Overall the property is very pretty and left to it's natural state. We enjoyed meeting the other couples staying there; especially talking around the fire pit. The dogs greeted us just like their website says. Hank followed me every where and even... More

Visiting with friends in the North Georgia Mountains we went to The Martyn House for a cup of coffee and ended up with a magnificent Latte, a delicious Strawberry Mango Smoothie and a fantastic Four Berry Smoothie. Yum! When reading all the selections available on the menu wallboard we made a command decision to return soon for delicious (and healthy)... More

Martyn House is nice place to go to have a good cup of coffee, sandwich, or desert. They have fixed the restaurant to be very user friendly and a great place to simply meet friends for lunch. The staff also bring warmth to your stay. Highly recommend a visit to The Martyn House while you are in Ellijay.

The farm and views are so pretty. Tents are accommodating - comfortable beds with down comforters, bathroom, and front porch. Neat "glamping" experience. Rick and Joann are effusively helpful. Rick brews his own beer and his stout was amazing. The breakfasts they prepare each morning (fritattas, scones, eggs, smoothies, etc.) were delicious. We went in November and I bet summer... More

My friend and I get together once a year for a long weekend and thought glamping at the Martyn House would be different and fun. Fiirst I'd like to say that Rick, Joann and all the critters were great hosts. The food was good and we enjoyed the fire pit and conversation with the other guests. However, our tent was... More

Thank you for sharing. Rick and I realized early on that cotton desert tents in North Georgia would be a challenge.These tents are very expensive to replace every year and using harsh chemicals on them would destroy the water resistance and fabric as well as the environment. We came to the conclusion that as long as they did not leak... More

My husband and I were looking for a getaway for our 6 year wedding anniversary and somehow I stumbled upon The Martyn House. It was everything and much more than we expected. We stayed in the Bohemian Bungalow and couldn't have been more pleased with our Glamping tent. Rick and JoAnn were amazing hosts. Rick's home brewed beer is amazing... More

We just returned from a 2-night anniversary trip at The Martyn House. If you're trying to decide whether to try it, please note that the only 2 negative reviews were left by people who clearly were not used to larger dogs. If you're not a big dog person, perhaps this isn't for you. But for everyone else, don't hesitate to... More

If you love spending time with your loved one surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors with a rustic and natural vibe but all the pampering you expect from a luxury hotel then the Martyn House is a great option. Gourmet food, home grown veggies, fruits and treats from the Martyn House garden provided a special flavor with the delicious... More

This was such a wonderful experience. We took a family trip to The Martyn House, and we didn't really know what to expect from glamping. Upon arrival, we all knew that we were going to have an amazing time. The property is gorgeous, the tents are super cool, and JoAnn and Rick are just the sweetest people. The three dogs,... More

Seriously one of the best vacations we've ever been on. Calming, relaxing, beautiful, and lovely. We simply cannot say enough about our hosts, Joanne, Rick, and all the dogs, cats, and chickens. They are so welcoming and hospitable. You'll be in awe of their warmth. Wish we could have taken Hank (the golden retriever) home with us, but oh well;... More
