Looking for a relaxing getaway from your busy life in Atlanta, but don’t want to travel far? You should definitely put Serenbe on your radar. At a mere 40 minutes south of downtown Atlanta, the wide open spaces of this bucolic getaway offer a chance to breathe fresh air, connect with nature and ease your mind.  

If you haven’t heard of it before, Serenbe is a sustainably built community of houses and businesses nestled inside acres of preserved forests and meadows in rural Chattahoochee Hill Country. Steve and Marie Nygren bought the property decades ago for their own family use and have since cultivated an award-winning eco-oasis where dozens of families live, work and learn.   

Serenbe welcomes visitors as well, either to browse the community for a day trip or to stay at one of the inns. Featuring a 25-acre organic farm, a seasonal farmers market, three farm-to-table restaurants, horseback riding, a spa, outdoor theater from Serenbe Playhouse, culinary events, festivals, shops and more, there is plenty to help you unwind and enjoy a relaxing mini-break.     

The first house at Serenbe broke ground in 2004 and today the community is home to more than 420 residents and has won numerous awards, including the Urban Land Institute inaugural “Sustainability Award,” Atlanta Regional Commission “Development of Excellence” and, as one of the first EarthCraft Communities, Serenbe was named “Development of the Year.”
