On our final day in Atlanta, we went to a place called Serenbe, a culturally rich haven that focuses on four main aspects: arts for inspiration, agriculture for nourishment, health for wellbeing, and education for awareness.
This translates into a gorgeous 25 acre organic farm, some of the most Pinterest worthy homes I’ve ever seen, an adorable town that looks like something from a story book, and delish farm to table restaurants.
Lindsea’s from a farm in New Mexico, and first discovered this place when Robbie took her, to cure her homesickness! Major boyfriend brownie points if you ask me;)
We started out by walking the grounds and ended up at the Farmhouse, a 7 bedroom bed and breakfast that was impeccably decorated.
I think I have a thing for bathroom selfies, especially when the rest room has a massive chandelier and ruby red walls.
The little restaurant in the farmhouse only serves 5 entrees daily, and apparently has an insanely good Sunday fried chicken lunch.
The homey store inside boasts hand poured soy wax candles, hand stamped coasters, and fresh jam including fig and hot pepper.
The boys weren’t too interested in the farmhouse so they shot a few hoops while they waited. Next up, the farm to meet all the animals!
It was seriously like a fairytale being there. You walk up a yellow brick road with beautiful engravings to meet all the animals. There was everything from fluffy bunnies, to weeks-old pigs, to sheep, and (Zack’s favorite) donkeys!
We then went on to the town that connects to the farm and explored the bake shop and boutiques. They have adorable trinkets like hand made candles, jewelry, books, furniture, etc.
^^^look at this handsome little man!
I may have screamed when I saw Smitten Kitchen’s cookbook on one of the tables in a boutique; she’s one of the best bloggers out there and her recipes are to die for. She’s responsible for those apple cider caramels I’m obsessed with!
There are all too many people I want to gift this book to!
We took a final walk around the town before our stomachs got the best of us.
How amazing does this swinging bed that was on someone’s porch look??
I met a friend! Zack named him Garfield, and don’t tell Mittens but I think he was much more friendly!
Last stop? Dinner at The Hil, a small family owned restaurant that uses produce from the Serenbe farm.
We ordered a few rounds of spicy jalepeno margaritas and gin and grapefruit cocktails, and moved on to the main event.
Robbie and I got the chicken pot pie which I was sadly disappointed with. The broth lacked flavor and the pastry was dry.
However, Zack’s burger and Lindsea’s chicken were incredible. His burger was draped with mushrooms and those fries where amazingly crisp.
We left Serenbe full and happy and uplifted in a way that only nature can do. I would have loved to stay here for a few nights and have gotten to experience the town the way the locals do, but our quick affair here was exactly what we needed!
