More Xplor!e Fun

Xplorie just got better with new fun filled activities for Georgia Mountain Rentals’ guests. Here, I would like to give you more details to help make your selection easier.

As you know, most all of the Georgia Mountain Rental properties include exclusive Xplor!e Activities, arranged with local business owners. This arrangement is exclusive to Georgia Mountain Rentals and our guests. For each paid night at Georgia Mountain Rentals, the selected cabins, chalets and lodges offer one free adult admission for one activity of your choosing.

I decided to split the activities as follows…

Extreme Speed Dominator Go-Karts

Call of Duty Black Ops style Extreme Laser Tag

Outpost Gold and Gem


Nacoochee Adventures: Yonah Quest Adventure Park

Sunburst Stables: Zip Line Adventures
Nacoochee Adventures: Moonshine Canopy Tour





Alpine Miniature Golf & Scoop de Scoop Ice Cream

North Georgia Zoo and Farm


Southeaster Expedition: Chattooga River Rafting on Section III

Trout Fishing the Hooch

Through Helen, North Georgia’s Alpine tourist town, the Chattahoochee gets heavy doses of hatchery trout on a regular basis. Access is good through most of Helen, with anglers fishing right through downtown. The river has already reached a decent size in this area and leaves plenty of open area for casting. The river bottom drops just enough to create good holding areas for trout. Just remember that in the summer, fishing in Helen has the added sport of dodging the recreational floaters in hot pink tubes.


The Sign Said…

A fun picture post of all the cabin signs I could find. Life is better at the cabin with Georgia Mountain Rentals! For your amusement….


G·M·R Cus·tom·er Serv·ice (noun)

cus·tom·er serv·ice noun. The assistance and advice provided by a company to those people who buy or use its products or services.

At Georgia Mountain Rentals, we make it a priority! We stand out with our customer service. Reviews prove it. Each GMR family member is proud of it. We just wouldn’t have it any other way! (more…)

Studio Cabins for Two

We have several studio-style cabins at Georgia Mountain Rentals. A studio cabin consists of one single room plus a bathroom. The single room of the cabin functions as the kitchen, living room and bedroom. The kitchen area or “kitchenette” is sometimes divided from the main living area, or may simply be a counter and cabinets along one wall.


The Twelve Days of Christmas

We have all heard, most of us sang, the famous song The Twelve Days of Christmas. I grew up really thinking that this True Love offered a gift for the twelve days following Christmas, starting on December 25th. What a sweet, romantic thing to do.

What’s for Breakfast in the Mountains?

While you may still want to brew a pot of coffee in the cabin this morning, breakfast is waiting for you at one of several restaurants in area. I can smell Cimmi’s biscuits and gravy, now! And then there’s Hofer’s Alpine French Toast with an order of Apfelküchle. (more…)
