We saw a 26% increase in quality traffic to the site and a 35% increase in actual bookings over the previous 2014 year.

Day-to-day guest operations are made easier for homeowners, as our professionals handle all questions, we collect and process bookings, check guests in/out, etc. We, also offer concierge services, which makes a rental more marketable – think exclusive perks like a private chef, in-home spa treatments, local area guides with maps, grocery delivery options, discounts on activities, etc.

Trained housekeepers keep managers’ vacation rental homes cleaned to hospitality industry standards. Inspectors are often deployed to each property before and after every guest, ensuring consistency and quality.
It’s standard for professionals to oversee services like lawn care, pest control, pool care, A/C service, etc. They maintain relationships with reliable vendors, and offer guests plans to cover accidental breakages."Going with a pro” also assures homeowners that there are "eyes and ears” for their second home, versus a property sitting empty without being checked or maintained.

"I'm thankful to you and the team for making this a financially positive experience, but more importantly for taking such good care of the cabin! For this reason, it's a special place for me and one that you have earned my trust to take care of. Thank You for everything you do. I appreciate the business relationship and friendship."Fran G, Waterfalls
"When Georgia Mountain Cabin Rental took over our property from the previous management company we saw a positive change. Our occupancy rate increased and rental income improved due – in part – to seasonal rental pricing. The website is very functional, user-friendly and has great reporting capabilities. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and responsive to our questions and concerns.
We’re happy to recommend Georgia Mountain Cabin Rental to cabin owners thinking of entering the rental market."Nancy & Al Karnavicius
"Almost nine years ago, we purchased our cabin from Paul Gribble from Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals. We also placed it into the rental program at the same time. It was a great decision on our part because the revenue helped pay our mortgage and some months pay all the bills too! We have had very few problems during the past nine years and when there was a problem, Paul and his staff were right there to fix any issues. We appreciate the southern hospitality that Amber exhibits on the phone as our guest call into Georgia Mountain to make a reservation for our cabin. Not only is she sweet and beautiful but extremely friendly and helpful when the guest arrives at the office in Blue Ridge. We feel truly blessed to be a part of the Georgia Mountain family and we look forward to another great year with them!
It would be our pleasure to speak with other families wishing to place their cabin with Georgia Mountain Cabin Rental."Demetri & Tom Martinez
" Seven years ago I began using Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals as the company to rent out my second home. Over the years and hundreds of rentals, Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals has always been there when I needed help with my cabin. My wife and I currently live in Florida and are not able to handle the day to day maintenance and repair of our mountain home, much less able to work with and find vacation renters. Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals stepped up and has relieved those headaches for us time and time again. The owner and manager Mr. Paul Gribble has assisted us on countless projects and his staff has maintained our cabin to a standard that would be hard to match. As I read the comments from the renters who have used our home for their own vacations or special occasions over the years it becomes very clear that the company does there job extremely well. If you’re ever considering using a company for your property management or if you’re just looking for a good place to stay where you can trust that you’re going to get your money’s worth, then I would highly recommend that you seek out Georgia Mountain Cabin Rentals for your future needs. Thank you."Bill Simmons, Owner Linwood Lodge
