Denisse Fernandez purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Denisse 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.

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.

AMAZING Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a wonderful weekend at Safari on the River. It is one of the few cabins we have found that actually has three master bedrooms. The description on VRBO of this house is accurate. The home featured a fenced in yard that was a huge hit for my mom’s dog. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious.

Several reviewers commented on the staircase to the river. It is true, there are a lot of stairs. You could always view the river from the covered porch at the top of the staircase, however you would be missing out on the beautiful river. I must mention that once you exit the steps, there is a small embankment you must climb down. You would benefit from bringing a rope to help you get up and down. With that said, the river at this location was perfect for wading and even walking upstream and floating down. Our family spent several hours in the river, just splashing around and having fun. We forgot our river floats, but this would have been a perfect location to use them. In fact, we rented floats from Ellijay River Outfitters that is located about a mile or so from the cabin.

We also took advantage of the game room with darts, pool and ping pong. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of wine glasses, coffee cups, plates, utensils and much more. (I also must mention, there was a Salvador Dali clock that my husband absolutely loved. My son also wanted to try out the “weather rock” that was on display on the bookcase.) All in all, we had a fabulous weekend. This cabin was perfect for our family and we hope to rent again soon.

We rented this fabulous cabin for the girls in the wedding party for our daughter's wedding. Easily accommodated everyone with plenty of room. The pictures are right on! Although we didn't get to spend much time at the cabin because we were at the nearby wedding venue, Deep South Farms, for most of the weekend, the cabin was perfect. Very large bedrooms, huge bathrooms, large closets, comfortable couches, screened porch, large front porch, great washer and dryer, and fully appointed kitchen. The beds were SO comfortable, which was very refreshing after spending hours on our feet :-) Check out the cool headboards, which are designed with built in reading lights, power outlet (to charge phones, etc.), and a little shelf. Such a great feature. Easy to book, great communication with the owner, lovely grounds, paved road and driveway. You won't be disappointed! We look forward to returning to the cabin when we can take full advantage of all it has to offer.
