Overworked? Overtired? Or do you just want to escape to the serenity of north Georgia, with its breathtaking views of the mountains, lake and streams?
A call to Joy Lyle with Stressbuster Cabin Rentals Ellijay Ga will find you a real, live person answering at the other end or a prompt e-mail reply written by the same real, live person. As Joy says, “No switchboard, no being put on hold, no office help, just me.”
Prospective renters will find their specific wants for cabin size, number of bedrooms, pet friendly needs, handicapped accessibility, dates desired, even a cabin with a pool table if that’s your desire– whatever you’re looking for– from one source: Joy. She’s available 24/7– even when she’s on vacation. Her laptop, calendar, and cell phone are with her; she does it all from any place. This assures you that you and your wants aren’t lost in the shuffle, “That cuts down with a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation,” she assures. It also means that if any problems or emergencies occur that she’ll be right on top of it.
Stressbuster Cabin Rentals aim is to provide memorable getaways with lasting memories, “We’ve had proposals, weddings, anniversaries, reunions, and family vacations. We also have guests who come to the same cabin repeatedly—or some who want to try all our other locations and cabins.” The main question is what do the guests want?
Many renters want nothing to do—just sit and enjoy the peace, while others desire a fully-stacked list of things to do. The area is abundant with a variety of choices: golfing, boat rentals, trout fishing, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, tubing, zip lining, vineyards, scenic railway, horseback riding, cycling, state parks, and more. The annual festivals are big draws but reservations need to be made well in advance to expect to find a cabin during those events. As well, festival dates require a three-day minimum stay. In addition, the nearby quaint towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge offer outstanding shopping and dining experiences.
The cabins, whether a cozy nook for two or a mountain-lodge for a large family or group of friends, are well appointed and squeaky clean. “We offer ‘hot deals’ throughout the year,” Joy says. Returning guests find the special deals as enticing incentives to again enjoy another de-stressed experience in north Georgia, just 75 miles from Atlanta on Highway 515, but far removed from asphalt jungles.
Stressbuster Cabin Rentals is a family-owned business since 1995. The business started, “When we bought one cabin. Guests that stayed with us bought their own cabins and asked me to rent out the cabins for them. That’s how we grew, mostly from word of mouth. We kept growing until it became a full-time job.” Joy notes that outside the office duties, which are hers, her current other-task oriented staff members have worked with the business for 10 years. As for the one-on-one relationship with the renters, she says, it means that there’s always help available and your questions will always be answered. “I’m here to answer all your questions, to book cabins—and even give directions to lost guests. That sets us apart from large companies. I’ve had people call at night and when I answer it shocks them, as they expected to get an answering machine.”
Joy points out that when a prospective guest decides to rent one of their cabins and make a deposit, she mails an information packet with the many things to see and do in the area. And then she emphasizes that when you arrive, “You are now entering a stress-free zone.”
