Martin House (formerly Hill House) is a comfortable guest house at Happiness Hills Farm, a farm and retreat center in the Appalachian foothills near historic Berea, Kentucky. It's perfect for couples, families, and groups who want to enjoy each other's company in a beautiful setting. The Martin House is designed to feel like a home, with two private bedrooms, a living-dining room and kitchen, and a "Grandma's Attic" space with six single beds.

The space
When you're sitting on the balcony with a cup of fresh coffee or tea, looking across the sloping lawn toward the hammocks and the bridge across the Red Lick Creek, time seems to stand still and peace washes over you. At least that's what we hear from folks who stay here, and what we experience every morning at our home, just up the hill from the Martin House.

Guest access
The Martin House lodging area on the second and third floors is completely private - you'll have your own door lock code and once you're inside, the space is entirely yours. On the ground floor is a common area that houses laundry facilities, additional bathrooms, and a full kitchen. You might see other visitors and farm residents in that area, which has a separate outdoor entrance. Outside the house, you'll be sharing the wide open spaces with other guests and the Escobar family. You're welcome to enjoy the creek, the lawns, the walking trails, the chapel, the campfire area, and our 10-acre lake, along with the rest of us - we welcome you!

Other things to note
We are committed to a healthy earth, and we want our retreat center to do its part. We ask our guests to join us in separating food waste (we'll compost it for you) and recycling (we'll deliver it to the local center), and we promise to plant a tree on the farm for each booking of five nights or more.

Location

Berea, Kentucky, United States

We're located in the Red Lick Valley, near the foot of Pilot Knob, where legend has it that Daniel Boone was inspired to write, "I had gained the summit of a commanding ridge, and, looking round with astonishing delight, beheld the ample plains, the beauteous tracts below." Farms and small housing developments dot the valley landscape, and the lush Appalachian foothills surround us on all sides.

I'm a musician, dancer, educator, mom, nature girl, Jesus follower, and travel enthusiast, and I'm generally excited about life and the possibilities of each day. My mantra is "choose happiness," and that's what I try to do each and every moment. My husband, Alfredo, is a visual artist whose murals and other paintings can be seen in Berea and other cities throughout the eastern USA. I have recorded 11 albums, several of which can be found on iTunes, and I'm involved with two student folk dance groups: The Berea Festival Dancers (of which our daughters, Lydia and Isabel are members) and The Berea College Country Dancers. We're homeschoolers, and are often called upon to work as arts education consultants through state arts councils and the Kentucky Department of Education. On any given day you may find us doing schoolwork at home, working on the farm or buildings, or out and about in the world doing our arts thing and trying to make life fuller for everyone we meet.
