About Lenora Fernandez

Lenora & David Haydon live in Marietta, GA. They are dog lovers, avid bridge players, and fitness enthusiasts. They own property around Marietta, as well as in Destin, Florida. They love to enjoy these properties with their large extended family, as well as their furbabies.

Why Lenora Fernandez chose North Georgia Mountains

It has always been a dream of ours to own a cabin in North Georgia - the beautiful weather, scenery, and fun festivals drew us to rent in this area for a few years, until we decided to buy. Our family lives in Marietta, so it is a short 65 minutes drive to our mountainous get-away. We wanted something the whole family could enjoy, so we designed the cabin for optimal comfort and to allow for games and activities.

What makes this cabin unique

When we had previously rented cabins in Ellijay, we found that the unpaved roads can be hazardous to drive at night or in inclement weather, so we wanted a property that was easily accessible year round. It is a beautiful area to take a walk, and in addition to having our own private dock over the water, there is a dock at the end of the neighborhood, a pretty 15 minute stroll. Being centrally located in East Ellijay makes it easy to be a quick drive from restaurants, the downtown area, and the shopping areas.

Very impressed and had a blast!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well this was our first time renting a cabin and it was awesome. The cabin was clean and the rooms were very comfortable and well themed. We enjoyed the hot tub and relaxing on the main patio. The fire pit was a big hit our last night there and after this stay we decided to make it a family tradition and visit the cabin once a year from now on. Kudos to the owners!

Girl's Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time at Safari on the River. It was easy to find with a great location on the Cartecay River and not too far from Ellijay to take in some local shopping. There were a few hiccups such as the fire not starting Friday night in the gas fireplace but one phone call quickly took care of that and we enjoyed the warmth of a fire for the uncommonly cold May weather. The accommodations were very nice with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and a nice big sectional in the living room to relax on. We enjoyed catching up with each other, playing games and just unwinding and Safari on the River was the perfect place to do this! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home!

Very nice location, Peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, we were more than impressed. The initial look is amazing. Both interior and exterior. Hot Tub was nicely sized and had lighting.

Only loses star for the miscellaneous broken things throughout the home (cracked microwave bezel, etc. Nothing major), bees and damaged game room amenities.

Nonetheless, loved it and would go back. Bees and all. Beds were amazingly comfy.
