When deciding on a cabin, be sure to understand that each house is very different and each rental management company is very different. Carefully review the rental terms to make sure you understand the specifics and all charges applicable to your rental.

    • Can it be used any time of year?
    • Are seasoned firewood and firestarters included?
  • Does the unit have an outdoor hot tub / jacuzzi?
  • Are there scenic long-range views (preferably facing West to see sunset)?
  • Which floor is the master bedroom on?
  • How many bedrooms / bathrooms?
  • How challenging is the drive (one lane road, paved road, unmarked roads, etc)?
    • Is it generally driveable if it snows?
  • Will there be cell phone reception (which providers)?
  • What are check-in / check-out times and procedures?
  • Can GPS / google maps generally navigate to the cabin?
  • Is it pet friendly?

    The offer of cabin rentals in the Georgia Mountains is really diversified and extensive. I like to spend holidays in nature by renting a cabin. I like the options by the lake, where you can rent a boat.
    I took a look at the pictures from the Beary Kozy rental cabin and this cabin is really beautiful, very spacious, nicely decorated, has everything you need and more.
    Thanks for a great presentation!

      Hi Nina, I have really special memories of a vacation at the Beary Kozy cabin with extended family (4 generations!). It was a great space to hold so many loved ones and create lasting memories of times together playing games, cooking meals, sitting around the campfire, and enjoying the beautiful mountain views. I can’t recommend these beautiful cabin rentals enough!

    I cannot even begin to express the love I feel for the mountains. There are a good number of reminders in this article for what to look for in a rental cabin. I don’t often think about just renting a space, but this is a good checklist of things to look out for if I ever I do choose to find a place. It’s not likely that I would have thought to check for these things on my own, so having that is really nice!

    This is an informative and interesting article on cabin rentals in the Georgia mountains. The images show clearly why someone looking for some peace and serenity would want to rent one of these, and the prices are not unreasonable either. The checklist that you have provided is helpful, there are a couple of items that I would have missed otherwise when looking for a suitable place to stay.

    It is a great idea to go with a group too. These cabins are large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably and the more the merrier is what I like to say. It would be a different experience for some of my friends and I know they would enjoy it. Is there a particular time of year when these are cheaper? The extensive list of providers is helpful too. Thanks for the heads up on these cabins and the opportunities for a different kind of vacation!

      Hi Dave, The time of year that I have found to be the most affordable is during the Winter. The holiday weekends may be an exception, but even so, you can still get a lot for your money with a Georgia mountain cabin rental!
