Dear Valued Guests:

We realize there is a lot of concern right now about the Coronavirus and that you most likely have some questions about Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals efforts to manage it. We want you to be assured that the safety of our guests and staff is always our top priority.

Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals is also taking a number of stringent precautionary measures at all of our properties to address the Coronavirus concerns and help ensure the health, safety and well-being of all of our guests and employees.

WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT CLEANING

We want you to feel confident in visiting our properties.  The health and safety of our staff and visitors are a top priorrity.  Please be aware that we have stepped up our already high cleanliness standards at each of our beautiful cabins. We are also:
  • Sanitizing each property with the highest grade product available: Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride, and Citric Acid.
  • Encouraging increased hand washing and sanitation efforts by all of our staff members
  • Asking all employees and incoming guests who have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath to stay home
  • We are continuing to wipe and disinfect things like door knobs, push button key pads, and handles, along with the disinfecting we are doing in the entire property as well.
WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT CANCELLATIONS, RESCHEDULING, AND REFUNDS
 

We all understand that the current situation and is constantly changing dynamics make it hard on everyone so we are being flexible in this situation.

Bookings within 30 days until 48 hours of arrival may opt to take a credit or reschedule for a new arrival date anytime through 2020.
We ask that all guests arriving between today and 4/30/2020 make this decision as soon as possible.

As we know that your travel plans have changed and that may affect your future travel plans.  Once you have recieved a gift certificate for a future stay the amount of the certificate may be applied to a new reservation. You do not have to book the same property that you had originally booked.  You will be booked at what the rate of any property is based on the dates and times you choose to come.  Your new dates may be in a more peak season, or a less peak season.  If you book and the rates are higher you will be responsible for payment of those rates.  If you book and the rates are lower you would recieve a credit back, based on the amount of your gift certificate.

If the area that you live in has been placed in a new order of non travel, please let us know as soon as you can so we can help you with the gift certificate. 
 
Currently, any booking that is beyond April 30, 2020 will fall under the original and standard "Cancellation Policy" of Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals.  However, this is subject to change based on travel restrictions as they arise from local, state, or federal governments.

We certainly appreciate your business and we are committed to following the recommendations from health authorities to give you peace of mind as you visit our properties. For the most up-to-date information about our response to the CDC’s guidelines for this situation visit:
