short term rental sign
The City of Sky Valley Short Term Rental Ordinance is in full effect. All property owners who are currently operating or plan to operate a short term rental within the City are required to obtain an annual STR license. The City thanks those short term renter operators that have already obtained their STR license.
The city  is partnering with Granicus, an online STR monitoring site. As Granicus is in progress of developing its monitoring platform for the City, they are beginning to discover active short term rentals to include those that have yet to obtain their STR license. As such and to avoid any citations, the City is asking all short term rental operators to obtain a short term rental license as quickly as possible.
The fee is $300 per rental unit.

Sky Valley, GA

Nestled in the southern tip of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, Rabun County is strategically located in the center of many major metropolitan areas. Knoxville, Charlotte, Augusta and Macon, are all under a 3 hour drive and Atlanta, Greenville, Asheville, and Chattanooga are all within 1 to 2 hours.

The highest point in Rabun County and the second highest in Georgia is Rabun Bald at 4,696 feet with surrounding mountains ranging in height from 2,500 to 4,500 feet. In late May and June, laurel blooms along the creek banks, in coves, on cliffs and on hilltops, and rhododendron blooms in July. In October, the mountains take on a profusion of color as the leaves begin to change for autumn.

Make sure to put Sky Valley on your list of places to see while visiting the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina. You will not be disappointed.
