Bed and Breakfast

The Martyn House is a unique Bed and Breakfast where our guests stay in luxury sleeping tents from India.  We are an adult only facility (18 and over). Reservations require a minimum two night stay ( we however recommend three to have enough time to truly unwind). Each tent is $220 per night plus tax (double occupancy). There is a 1 night non refundable deposit required at the time you book your reservation. Our tents are desert tents (100% cotton) and therefore are quite comfortable in the hottest summer days. Or you can have complete exclusivity for the entire property for $2500 plus tax and gratuity. (sleeps 10)

The Martyn House closes December 1st and reopens April 1st except for ‘The Studio’ which is open year round.  Reservations do fill up fast and we book up to a year in advance!

Reservations for our tents can be made by clicking on either of the two buttons below.
Only use one. Try the one that works best for you.

Glamping…as we fondly call it is  unique in that it you stay in four 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 on those cooler nights, and we have  fans for those warm summer nights to keep you comfortable. They each have their own 6 x 12 private bath with on demand hot showers and composting toilets. The entrance 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 or tea

The Studio

Our artists studio on the property can be reserved year round.  We think winter is the perfect time to enjoy the Studio and the solitude of the property. You will be the only guest on the property so you have the place to yourself. Relax in a creatively designed art studio with views of nature in every direction. A fire pit is right outside the studio for evening bonfires. The interior is colorful with a small kitchen, full size bed and twin, bathroom with glass shower and an outdoor bathroom complete with a claw foot tub!
