Brad Spencer, Owner/CEO
“We pride ourselves in offering a rental company that is trustworthy, caring, and always strives to do what is necessary to serve the best interests of each aspect of the triad: GUESTS – OWNERS – EMPLOYEES .” This statement from Brad is a simple yet powerful statement of the ideal of Blue Sky Cabin Rentals. From the beginning, Brad had a vision of service and leadership when he established Blue Sky in 2004. Through this vision, he has grown the company from just a few cabins to more than 150 properties around the Ellijay and Blue Ridge area. Brad’s goal is to show that we are a secure partner with some of the highest standards in the cabin rental industry. “We appreciate your continued partnership and we look forward to many more years together in the future.”
