20 Summer Fun Ideas in the North Georgia Mountains – #18

the-martyn-houseI’m getting towards the end of my summer fun idea series and I have to say that this #18 is a totally awesome place to visit.  Several of you may not like the idea of rustic camping, but how about glamorous camping…also known as Glamping!  You must put it on your summer bucket list to visit The Martyn House in Ellijay!   The inspiration from artists like JoAnn and Rick that own this fine establishment is amazing!  Who would have thought “Glamping”, would be such a hit!

Located on 18 acres, The Martyn House was built in the mid 30’s.  When Rick and JoAnn first saw this home they had a vision like none other I have heard.  They quickly went to work rennovating!  After a visit to India, JoAnn became inspired to import “canvas chic” tents and create multiple beautiful Luxury tents on site at The Martyn House to give their visitors a unique, glamorous and upscale type of camping experience.   Each tent can hold 2 per tent.  This is fabulous for 4 couples coming to get away or girls that would enjoy a ladies weekend retreat.  They also have farm to table dinners and just so happen to have one on July 20th!

There is also a large luxury tent that hosts events such as wedding and reunions.  On site you can also enjoy Rick’s photography studio and JoAnn’s studio that consists of a variety of clay pieces, collages and homemade bath products.   Check out their website for pricing and read of all the activites to enjoy at The Martyn House as well as the surrounding mountain area.   Reservations book quickly so it is time to reserve your  summer glamping experience now!   While you enjoy your visit, contact The Mountain Life Team to show you a variety of beautiful homes and cabins to be your own in the Ellijay area.
