You can usually find a crowd at the popular Cantaberry Restaurant located in the downtown area of Ellijay. Known for their awesome sandwiches and soups, Owners Case and Jessica Bruner stay busy for sure with locals and tourists alike!
The adorably decorated artsy type cafe is a friendly and quaint atmosphere with fabulous food. I have always found the service to be outstanding even on days when they are very busy. Case is the Chef that knows how to cook up some amazing soups! One of my favorites is the Tomato-basil soup that is incredible. I also had some of their chicken salad and can’t say if I remember ever having a better sandwich! Jessica was there both times I visited and is a very friendly face that wants to make sure her customers are happy and full when they leave.
Sometimes home values can undergo abrupt changes. One way that can happen is through the ‘Surprise Remodel’ phenomenon. That’s when you wake up one morning to find that your Blairsville Georgia house grew larger…overnight!
If you are one of the many Blairsville GA residents whose children have left for school, the Surprise Remodel is what happened the moment you realized that that you were, in fact, suddenly in possession of an extra room.
Sometimes it takes a few months, but as soon as you conclude that the sentimental value of leaving the high school memorabilia in place is outweighed by the value of transforming the room into more useful space, you have a number of ways to proceed:
Transforming the former kid room into an exercise area is one foolproof way Blairsville Georgia home values can be increased. Remove carpeting and add flooring as needed; place a floor-to-wall mirror to one side; then add any exercise equipment you choose (garage sales can be excellent sources).

When real estate occupies most of your day (as it certainly does mine), you find yourself receiving no end of information. Some summarize points of view that are available elsewhere; some provide original information that isn’t particularly relevant to our local market.
One piece that gets more than the usual quick-scan-then-into-the-recycle-bin treatment is the HPI Data Report. It comes in once each month from the demographers at CoreLogic ®. This group knows what they are talking about: among other things, they collect the most comprehensive property database in the U.S.
Last week was relatively quiet on the news front, so when they checked in, I was able to give their report a thorough going-over. What I found:
Holy smoke! Prices of homes for sale nationwide made the biggest year-over-year increase in seven years!

Being in the North Georgia Mountains is so exciting and I get a thrill out of learning about all the unique places to stay, dine and visit. The Martyn House in Ellijay is no exception! The inspiration from artists like JoAnn and Rick that own this fine establishment is amazing! Who would have thought “Glamping”, also known as glamorous tent camping would be such a hit!
Located on 18 acres, The Martyn House was built in the mid 30′s. When Rick and JoAnn first saw this home they had a vision like none other I have heard. They quickly went to work rennovating! After a visit to India, JoAnn became inspired to import “canvas chic” tents and create multiple beautiful Luxury tents on site at The Martyn House to give their visitors a unique, glamorous and upscale type of camping experience. Each tent can hold 2 per tent. This is fabulous for 4 couples coming to get away or girls that would enjoy a ladies weekend retreat.
