When you plan a vacation with Georgia Mountain Rentals, there is absolutely no reason to leave your best four-legged friend behind. With over fifteen pet-friendly cabins from which to choose, you can load the dog, the crate, and head for the mountains. The GMR Team loves animals of all kinds and understands how it feels to leave our furry friends behind. That’s why we offer Pet-Friendly Cabin Rentals!11058732_933261253401102_6103825638822893284_o
From studio-style one-bed cabins to 4-bedroom chalets, Georgia Mountain Rentals has pet-friendly properties of all sizes. There are even several cabins with fenced backyards: Laurel Ridge & Pawsibilities. The fenced areas are the perfect sniffing ground for the dog(s) to enjoy, giving you peace of mind knowing they are secure. Some vacation rental properties also feature screened-in pooch porches!


Our most popular pet-friendly cabin has always been Pawsibilities.  Located only minutes from Alpine Helen, this 2-bedroom cabin is perfect for couples, families with children, and most of all the pets. A privacy fence surrounds the backyard and creates the perfect mountain retreat.

Pawsibilities is located within walking distance of a community lake, where many a four-legged furry guest has taken a dip! Swimming and fishing are permitted, at your own risk, of course.


We ask that you bring a crate with you for those times you must leave Fido in the cabin alone. The crate not only keeps him safe, but the property and furnishings as well. If you would rather not leave the pooch alone, but can’t take him to your favorite dining spot, there’s always the option of leaving him a few hours with a dog-sitter.

We highly recommend Moon Doggies, a doggy day care and boarding facility located just opposite the Georgia Mountain Rentals office. Jackie is passionate about animals and would be happy to discuss taking care of your furry friends when you just can’t take them with you.


If you forget to pack the essentials or just want a souvenir toy from the mountains, there are several small pet shops, feed stores, and grocery stores located close to Helen. There are also a great number of veterinarians accessible for any emergencies that might occur during your visit. We would be happy to send you an email with a list of pet stores, groomers, and veterinarians upon request.

When booking a pet-friendly cabin,  tell your GMR Reservation Agent how many pets are in the family, along with their weight. With this, you will receive a guaranteed quote that includes a one time pet fee for each according to size.

So what are you waiting for? Pack the doggie duffle and load ’em up for a memorable stay in the mountains. We are all waiting!
