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.
For a local vacation rental manager who’s ready to help from apple season in the fall to trout season in the spring, give us a call. We’d love to walk you through what makes Vacasa different.
Guests’ expectations are getting higher, especially when it comes to cleanliness. Our enhanced professional cleaning program, Vacasa Premium Clean, meets or exceeds CDC guidelines, so guests have extra confidence to rent your home.
Once your home is thoroughly cleaned, we treat hard and soft surfaces throughout the home with a hospital-grade, EPA-approved disinfectant, paying special attention to high-touch surfaces.
Employees are provided with personal protective equipment (gloves and face masks) to wear at all times while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose.
Our upgraded cleaning measures and the additional time our housekeepers spend caring for your home all come at no extra cost to you or your guests.
Your listing will be prominently featured everywhere guests are searching, like Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. And our digital marketing specialists ensure Vacasa homes are highly visible across search engines, display advertising, social media, and email marketing.
We obsess over delivering a seamless, stress-free vacation for your guests, from booking the right home to stocking the bathroom toiletries. And if your guests have questions, our Customer Experience team is available around the clock to answer all guest phone calls and emails.
We believe in earning your long-term business, not locking you into an ironclad contract. We don't limit your use of your vacation home—so you can enjoy it whenever you like, and know that it'll be sparkling clean and ready for you when you get there. Your home will always be yours.
