Hummingbird Haven is green and white striped and sits nestled in the woods overlooking a meadow. Many mornings as you sit on your covered veranda sipping your coffee, tea or hot chocolate you may see deer grazing. The inside of Hummingbird Haven is spacious and custom designed with traditional Indian block print ceiling in soft salmon, cream and green pin-striped. The tent has a private bath with an antique washstand sink from Eastern Europe, on demand hot shower and compost toilet. Robes are provided and the queen size bed has luxurious bedding. Sleeps 2.
Our property has three beautifully decorated Gypsy Faire Luxury Sleeping Tents. Don't let the word "tent" fool you, as each tent is beautiful inside with all the comforts of home while being environmentally friendly. All tents are heated and will keep you toasty warm. Each tent has its own 6 x 12 private bath with on demand hot showers and composting toilets. Each tent has a large 6 x 12 covered front porch with tables and chairs overlooking the woods or meadow. The bedrooms are 12 x 12 (double occupancy) with a small sitting area. The beds have luxurious bedding. Hot water may be heated for coffee, our own Martyn House special tea blend or hot chocolate. Reservations require a minimum two night stay (double occupancy) that includes a hearty breakfast for $180 per night.
You may also reserve the entire property to share with friends. This includes all three sleeping tents, which sleep up to 6 individuals or 3 couples and 18 acres of woods, meadows, trails and pond. We start by serving you a welcoming supper the first evening you arrive (after 3). Later that evening relax with friends which may include board games, croquet, bocci ball, horse shoes, bon fire and music.
The next morning starts with a hearty breakfast on the veranda. The days activities can be as adventurous or relaxing as you wish. We can pack a picnic or have a gourmet lunch by the pond. If you let us know in advance we can arrange a wide variety of adventures. These include mountain or road biking, hiking, fly fishing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, or canoeing.
We can also arrange for a variety of activities here at The Martyn House including a massage, yoga session or art class among others. You may have private lessons with Rick in photography or play with JoAnn in her art studio. Let us design the perfect retreat for you! The cost of all these activities and adventures is extra.
That evening after your activities and you have relaxed and freshened up in your luxurious tent, we gather for a candlelight dinner. On the final day you will be treated to a hearty brunch.
The entire property may be reserved for $1500 for the weekend (or any weekday - two night / three day stay) inclusive of meals and lodging only.You may also want to stay longer so make sure to ask about our other retreat/adventure packages!
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
It all started when Rick and JoAnn first laid their eyes on the property they now call "The Martyn House". The Martyn House is an 18 acre private haven just a little over an hour north of Atlanta Georgia. The homestead was built in the mid 30's, where the original family (Orlando and Essie Martin) cultivated the land and raised their children. The Martyn House is steeped in history and one feels the nostalgic quaintness the minute they step out of their car.
