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 nice stay- bring extra TP

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was well kept and had a wonderful large couch to hold everyone. Stairs to go down to the river and "explore" along the banks. We enjoyed the pool table and fire pit outside. The themed animal print rooms were fun. We would have liked a few more extra towels and toilet paper rolls. We did have a little trouble getting a response back immediately prior to our stay, and we had to call and ask about the deposit being refunded. Other than that, it was a perfect trip.

A great place to stay if you're visiting Ellijay or Blue Ridge.

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving at this house in East Ellijay. The house has everything you could think of and more. When we arrived we were not able to access the stairs to the river (due to some not being sturdy) but I emailed the owner and on Thanksgiving Day workers arrived early and worked all day and the next day fixing the steps. There are several good places to eat in Ellijay or you can easily stay at the house and cook because it is well equipped. There is a hot tub and fire pit in the back screen in back yard. We tried fishing the river but did not catch any fish but also didn't catch any at the other locations we tried so maybe the wrong time of the year and we aren't experience at fly fishing. The house boasts lots of room so several families could share the house. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Blue Ridge. We found a neat store called North Georgia Mountain Outfitters that we frequented and bought several Christmas gifts. We did our Black Friday shopping at a great outlet mall in Dawsonville Georgia which is about 40 minutes from the house. It is worth the drive. I did it twice.

Great cabin and stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at the cabin. FYI... the stairs going to river need some work. There is a hole on the last platform and I almost went through....also there is a board that is loose and when someone steps on it it lifts up and I almost fell. I have pretty good balance but would hate for someone to get hurt. Simple fixes if you know about them. Overall great stay and nice cabin. Thanks for sharing.

The cabin was wonderful. It had enough space for everybody, there were lots of things to do and it was in a beautiful area. I will definitely rent this cabin again.

Our group of 3 couples and their toddlers spent the weekend here for a quick getaway. We had THE BEST time!! The cabin was absolutely beautiful and well taken care of. The owners have literally thought of everything you may need (they even had baby gates available so we could block out the top of the steps). We spent one morning out but the rest of the stay we kept busy letting the kids play in the creek, roast smores, collect acorns and just run around the yard. The room setup was perfect because each family got their own bedroom and own bathroom. The kitchen was very well stocked with any utensil or serving dish you may need. We will definitely come back in the future!

Peaceful and relaxing! Beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely and spacious home. My family enjoyed spreading out and relaxing. The kitchen was well-stocked and plenty of storage there. The screened porch with the sofa was my favorite place to curl up with a book or for a nap ;-) The kids were well-entertained with the pool table and other amenities. Getting down to the river was a little tricky but so pretty and fun to splash in. Loved that our little dog was welcomed and they provide a pet bed and a little pen for him. Be sure and bring your own toiletries, but the bathrooms were great. Comfy furniture and realllllly great, comfy beds. The little neighborhood is quiet and great for walking or riding bikes. Very convenient to town and the apple orchards. We will definitely be back!!
