Whether you’ve owned a vacation home for decades or are considering buying, renting your Blue Ridge vacation home is a great way to make some extra income.
Travelers love to rent Blue Ridge vacation homes, which is no surprise to those lucky enough to live here. Situated in a stunning section of the Appalachian Mountain Range, Blue Ridge is near Lake Blue Ridge and the Toccoa River, cementing Blue Ridge as the trout fishing capital of Georgia. In the fall, tourists flock to see the changing colors of the gorgeous hills and to take a bite out of the Georgia Apple Festival.
Navigating rental requirements can be complicated. First, you’ll need a business license and short term rental certificate. Vacation rental taxes in Blue Ridge include a 5 percent lodging tax, a 7 percent county tax, and a potential per-night booking fee (depending on the length of the stay). Among other regulations like parking requirements, fire and safety regulations, and noise restrictions, 24/7 local response team requirements, and HOA/CC&R regulations (if applicable), new short term rentals may only be established in commercial zones.
Taking all this together, you’d be smart to consider working with a full-service Blue Ridge vacation rental management company. We’re in the area and available 24/7 for guest-related maintenance emergencies, late-night phone calls, and regularly scheduled housekeeping. We’ll also handle booking, marketing, and customer service, allowing you to sit back, relax, and use your home when you want.

In 2009, after assuming responsibility for his wife's family vacation home, our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager capable of providing quality care and a satisfying financial return. This is how Vacasa began—with a vision to deliver a seamless experience for vacation home owners, through innovative technology and local staff, wherever guests want to travel.
