After 5 years of owning and operating one of the most popular cabin rentals in Ellijay we purchased Buck Valley Lodge early in 2015. We have spent most of our free time enjoying the mountains with our 4 children. In July of 2011 we decided to share our cabin home, Bearadise Retreat with others and listed it with a local property management company. We quickly saw the downfalls in using such a service, both for the owners and the guests. We saw so many things we could do to improve our guests experience. We now enjoy handling the entire process ourselves. Our favorite part is talking to and meeting our guests from all over the country and overseas.
