The Martyn House--'Arabian Nights' in Ellijay

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 In the Mountains

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a great piece today on The Martyn House in Ellijay, about a 20-minute drive The Martyn Housefrom Blue Ridge. It brought to mind the wonderful time I recently had at one of their amazing farm-to-table meals. The hosts -- Joann Adams and Rick Lucas -- couldn't have been more warm and welcoming, the food more divine, or the surroundings more enchanting.

I went on a balmy summer evening, and shared a table under the stars with about 50 other folks, a varied group that included local artists, gallery owners, civic leaders...and me (I could make out the whispers, "Who invited HER???"). Our food was cooked in front of us over a fire, and the menu included foods grown in the local community or in Georgia. We feasted on Gypsy Faire Sleeping Tentsbutternut squash soup, mixed greens, shrimp & grits, and strawberry shortcake. The long table was lit by candleabras, and candle chandeliers hung from tree limbs. Through the trees you could see the colorful Gypsy Faire Sleeping Tents lit up, inviting you to go visit them in all their 'Arabian Nights' splendor.

It was truly a magical evening, and I most certainly plan on continuing my visits to The Martyn House. Hope to meet you there!
