Welcome to GMR Properties
The Northeast Georgia Mountains, only a two hour drive from Atlanta, have become the city's rural playground. The perfect place to rent a lodge, cabin, or home.
The cool waters of Lake Burton, Lake Rabun, Lake Seed and Tugalo offer wonderful fishing, boating, swimming and water-skiing opportunities. The wonderful waterfalls, over 50 in our area, make a great goal for any hike; and with Rabun County being 80% National Forest and Parks, our hiking routes are endless. Since we are completely pet-friendly - the dog can come too! The Chattooga River, one of seven national whitewater rivers, not only offers incredible rafting and kayaking, but is stocked with trout for fly-fishing. The banks along this majestic beauty yield a perfect picnic or hike. Horseback riding abounds here, either bring your own horse or take a hack with the Dillard House Stables -- it's mountain magic all the way. Our National Parks such as Black Rock Mountain State Park, Tallulah Gorge, Warwoman Dell and Terrora to mention a few, hook up to the famous Appalachian Trail and William Bartrum Trail. Rabun's golfing community has boomed, with Kingwood, Sky Valley and Waterfall Golf Courses; not to mention the expansion of our local Rabun County Golf Course.
All seasons are special here: Spring brings blooming dogwood, laurel and rare wild flowers and orchids - and the fastest whitewater; Summer - "where spring spends the summer" (Rabun's County tag line) - says it all, and Floridians have summered here for generations. The higher elevations bring breezes on the porch while the rhododendron strut their glory; Autumn in the mountains is breathtaking, from the reds of the maples, to the purple of the dogwoods - the yellows of the oaks and green of the magnolias -- the "leaf-season" brings out "leaf-lookers" in droves. Long winter views are the best, crisp days are perfect hiking weather (or snuggling by a log-fire with hot cider weather!).
With such a wealth of beauty and real opportunities to be touched by nature, it is small wonder Rabun County has become such a popular spot.
Here, at GMR Properties, some mountain home owners are offering their personal retreats for rent, and for you, the would-be escapee, this is a real bonus. Here's why… These homes are not commercial rental units - not purpose built tourist "cabins", or crowded roadside rentals specializing in housing tourists. They are private homes, with room, space and freedom to "live" in the mountains for a weekend, week or more. Equipped as a home with linens, cooking facilities, sundries - all you wish for. The mountain welcome is pretty special too - so jump into our website, take your pick of one of our beautiful properties, and make your own mountain memories.
We offer weekend rentals (Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday), week rentals and mid-week sprecials for three night stays any week nights. We also offer short-term longer stays at special prices for those who need to be in the area on business or other reasons for a month or two or evern three.
We are pet friendly and open to your bringing your "babies" with you. We simply ask you observe proper pest control measures and keep your pets off the furniture (unless, of course, they are on your lap!!)
