Management Services for Cabin Owners and Guests

We are looking to add Mountain View and Waterfront Cabins in the Blue Ridge and Ocoee River areas.
 

Don't confuse property management with property marketing.  
There are larger companies out there who market your cabin but have no idea what is going on at your cabin or have time to talk to you personally.

 

Service to our cabin owners and guests are our ONLY concern.

We aren't in the business of buying and selling real estate. 

 We aren't in the construction/development business. 

Managing, Marketing and Maintaining your cabin is ALL that we do!

We believe the key to our success is in the personal relationships that we have developed over
the years with owners and guests.
 With over 17 years of property management experience, you can expect a personal business relationship with Bryan and Erica.  As a cabin owner on our program, you will deal directly with us and not some "manager of the day". We also have no plans to manage more than 40 cabins so you won't feel like you are just a number.
Not only will your property be listed our website but on other travel websites as well like Airbnb, Homeaway, Booking.com, Expedia, Hometogo and more.
We are the first rental agency in our area to offer it's guests free activities such as rafting, zipline, pedego electric bike rental, Escape Room admissions, horseback riding and tubing and more to come.  This gives added value to each property's rental as they can take advantage of over $100 worth of activities each day of their stay at no cost to the owner and no additional expense to the guests.     
                                                   
Owner references are available to you upon request.

Mountain Escapes Vacation Property Management Program

Serving Blue Ridge, Ocoee River, and surrounding North Georgia areas.

Mountain Escapes is a family owned business, located in Ducktown, TN.  We're just a few miles from the GA/TN/NC border. We were vacation cabin rental owners before we moved here from the Metro Atlanta area.  After some frustration with our property management company, we decided to sell our cabin and start our own cabin rental business.  Our main goal was to treat both cabin owners and guests the way we would like to be treated.  Twelve years later, Mountain Escapes is the oldest management company in Polk County TN and the fourth oldest in Fannin County, GA.

As a cabin owner on our program, you deal directly with Bryan McMillian, President of Mountain Escapes, not some "manager of the week".  He has personally handpicked all of the service related personnel.  This includes cleaning crews, exterminator, lawn maintenance, satellite tech, and repair/ maintenance contractors.  This means when we send someone to your property for whatever reason, they know what we expect.

One of the main objectives of our cabin rental program is to market your vacation rental property effectively.  This is accomplished through Area Chambers of Commerce (not just one but 3) along with several forms of media, event sponsorship, and print advertising.  We have excellent working relationships with other vacation activity businesses in the area, and we receive a significant number of referrals from these businesses.   But internet marketing is our primary method.  We place some of our North Georgia cabin rentals on numerous vacation rental websites, but our main focus for advertising is through this website. 

Our most recent search engine rankings (according to Google) has Mountain Escapes in the Top 5 for the following search phrases:

Ocoee River Cabin Rental, Ocoee River Cabin Rentals, Ocoee Cabin Rentals, Ocoee Cabin Rental, plus many other relative search terms. 

 

The Vacation Cabin Rental Program also includes the following:

-Cleaning of the Cabin after the guests at the renter's expense.
-PreCheck visits to inspect your cabin before guests checking in
-Supply paper products, trash bags, haul off trash, guest soaps, dish soaps, etc.
-Supply a list of recommended service personnel  (exterminator, lawn maintenance, maintenance specialists, etc.).
-Schedule service personnel around guests stay (exterminator, lawn maintenance, maintenance specialists, etc.).
-Credit card fees are deducted of our commission.
-Collect and forward any and all sales tax collected to proper agencies.
-Provide Cabin Owner with a monthly statement of income and expense along with a payout of rental income received and 1099 for tax purposes.  (We try to have these statements along with checks mailed out by the 10 of the following month, which is faster than most other cabin rental companies).
- We don't nickel and dime you with petty chargebacks (ie: gift baskets) and unnecessary trip charges or maintenance fees (ie: tighten a doorknob)
 

We are interested in all shapes and sizes of cabins for our property management, but being as we are paid on commission, we have to be selective with the rental cabins we allow on our vacation rental management program.  But we would be happy to talk to you about your cabin, and it's potential for our program.  We currently need to increase our inventory of waterfront cabins, mountain view cabins, and luxury cabins.  Hot tubs and fireplaces are a must; game tables are a plus.  Give us a call!
 

 Cabin Check Program 

We have a program for those who want someone to go by and check on your cabin, but you aren't interested in renting your cabin out?  We have a plan for that as well.  It is effortless; We'll check on your cabin once a month for $45 or twice for $75.  We will walk through and make a visual inspection and notify you if any issues need to be addressed and take any necessary actions to minimize damage (i.e. turn off the water if pipe bursts).  We can even recommend some of our repair personnel to help as well.  We will also make special trips upon your request as well.

 

Owner's comments:

Mackinaw Owner- I did want to let you know, I am very pleased with the condition of the interior. Your cleaning staff is doing a wonderful job. Very well organized and the beds look great.

Very much improved from what the (previous management) was doing. Your billing/payment system is great. Paying in a timely manner. All that you promised.!

 Black Bear Lodge Owner- Bryan, I have to say that with all of the management companies that I have dealt with, you have been very available and accessible.  Whenever we have had an issue, you have dealt with it promptly and professionally.  Thank you!
