This month we visit Serenbe, a sustainable community near Palmetto that began as the Nygren family’s bed-and-breakfast inn. Surrounded by woods and preserved green space, you can walk a trail, explore the shops, cozy up at the Inn, eat a farm-fresh meal, roast marshmallows—or simply relax and read a book. Writer Deborah Geering gives us the inside scoop on Serenbe’s offerings; see “A weekend in the country,” page 22, and then whet your appetite with our Georgia Cooks section, “Serenbe’s ‘super supper,’” page 42, featuring recipes from The Hil, the Blue Eyed Daisy Bakeshop and The Farmhouse restaurants, found in the heart of Serenbe. If the mountains are more your speed, Forrest Hills Mountain Resort, in Dahlonega, with its adorable cottages and cabins, provides another great getaway. Read about it on page 28. And, for a little wind-down music, check out country musician Billy Currington’s latest hits. A Rincon native, this Southern boy with Georgia roots is on the rise to stardom, touring this month with Kenny Chesney. See “A country boy rolls,” page 18. Happy new year! Here’s to a great—and relaxing—2011! Jennifer J.
