Property Management

Smoky Mountain Stays is a full-service property management company focused on vacation rentals as well as specializing in short-term rental real estate purchases. Our streamlined approach allows us to have less overhead and be more efficient; usually resulting in lower fees. The experience gained from our personally owned vacation rentals gives us a unique approach in the industry.


Brian and Sarah are locals in the Bryson City area. We have passion in sharing the Great Smoky Mountains of Western NC with our friends and guests alike. It’s why we chose Bryson City the place to start our family and our business. From hiking and exploring waterfalls to having a family meal at a cozy cabin; it’s all apart of the Smoky Mountain life!


From housekeeping to guest communications, we have a set of standards that we are not willing to compromise. Our philosophy is to treat the properties we manage the same as the ones we own. We have seen results in how this affects the total guest experience when they book with us. Although there will always be “bad guests” in the short term rental industry, we see that most of our guests will treat your property with respect which in turn minimizes issues. This all starts with standards.


We have great housekeepers. Our housekeepers are held to a high standard with a detailed checklist that includes photos of exactly how we want a property setup. This is all apart of the guest experience and consistency standards we desire for each and every property. Our goal with housekeepers is to be as streamlined and efficient as possible resulting in a more consistent experience for our guests.
