Meet the GMCR Team
Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals has been in business since 2004, providing excellent vacations and relaxing getaways for thousands of guests. However, our experience with the mountains and Blue Ridge Cabin Rentals did not begin in 2004. Prior to this, our family had four years of experience with the opening of another North Georgia Cabin Rental Company, and working with the guests and homeowners alike.
We pride ourselves on being born and raised in these beautiful mountains and strive for the advancement of our serene mountain town. Some of our accomplishments have been, being elected to serve on numerous Board of Directors for organizations in our area, working with children's shelters, working with Empty Stocking Fund for children, Snack in a Back Pack, Fannin County Fire and Rescue, and many other community programs and organizations.
Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rentals is an excellent place to call your home away from home. Our area's door is wide open for you to come and enjoy our beautiful area on what you call your vacation, but we call it our home.
GMCR is run by our amazing team. Learn more about the people who call this beautiful place home!
