I’m Chris Bainbridge… inviting you to take a ride with me. This is an amazing place to find adventure in all shapes and sizes. Ingles has sent me on a mission to bring you the very best of what our beautiful home has to offer – food, fun, nature, music, and more… all affordable, and all out of the ordinary. This is The Ingles Open Road.
As the great John Denver put it, life on the farm is kind of laid back. And today we’ve found the farm where laid back is the main event. This is Julep Farms, and if you’re ready for some relaxation, rejuvenation, and maybe a little area recreation, then this is the place for you.
Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia near the town of Dillard, Julep Farms
sits of 22 acres of glory. Picturesque pasture, stunning mountain views, and soaring white oak and persimmon trees frame this modern farm resort.
Julep Farms features four gorgeous cottages where you can come and escape the everyday. The Boat House, the Derby Cottage, the Magnolia Cottage, and the Sweet Tea each bring a special kind of comfortable elegance, with a bright, airy feel that immediately puts you at ease.
This place is the perfect spot for a family reunion or just a quick solo escape to the country. With all the comforts of home, and a setting that will transport you, these cottages will melt your cares away.
Guests can pop into the Julep Coffee and Sweets Bar for a delicious beverage for any time of day… an assortment of treats to satisfy that sweet tooth… or a grab and go lunch for setting out on a local adventure.
Julep Farms is just up the road from another Ingles Open Road favorite, Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center. And is centrally located near some stunning outdoor attractions and the beautiful town of Highlands.
When you return from your expedition, Julep Kitchen awaits. This place is what I like to call down-home gourmet, serving brunch, lunch, and dinner – along with an all-important kids’ menu. And the restaurant is open to guests and visitors alike.
When you’re ready for something to wet your whistle, the Julep Bar has your drink order. Locally crafted beer, wine, and champagne are waiting for you, along with creative
cocktails with the classic Mint Julep taking the front seat.
Julep Farms is a mountain retreat unlike anything else. It’s a family operation where you feel like family – ponies, Pyrenees and all. There’s an Ingles just up the road in Franklin where you can stock up and fuel up for the ride home. But I’m pretty sure you won’t want to leave. Your weekend is waiting on the Ingles Open Road.
