When you book with us and return the signed rental agreement, all we ask for is your credit card number to hold the reservation. No deposit is ever billed. Once your stay is complete and the provisions of the rental agreement have been met, there is no other transaction required. If for some reason, some of the provisions are not met, the maximum that would be charged to your card to cover the cost is $200 (the standard deposit amount required). Payment for the rental cost is split into two payments...50% is due 30 days prior to arrival and the final 50% is due 10 days prior to arrival.
If you don't like to use credit cards for your rental transactions, just put a $200 check in the mail along with your signed rental agreement. I will hold the check until your stay is complete. Again, if the provisions of the agreement have been met, I will either return or destroy your check, whichever you prefer.
If you decide to use online booking and payments, 50% of the rental amount will be due at booking while the final 50% and the $200 damage deposit will be due 10 days prior to arrival. Once your stay is complete and there are no damaged or missing items, the damage deposit will be credited to your credit card.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We live about 30 miles east of Atlanta in the historic city of Covington. We purchased our first vacation rental home in Big Canoe in 2007 and now have a total of three properties in Big Canoe.
Why the Owner Chose Jasper, GA, USA:
This is our second vacation rental in Big Canoe. We purchased our first home in 2007 and have had great success with the rental business. We love the mountains and it's so close to Atlanta. Many mountain communities are several hours from Atlanta, but Big Canoe is only one hour. It's a short drive but you feel so much more relaxed at Big Canoe, away from the hustle and bustle.
