Our Message


Almost 20 years ago, our founder had a vision to share his love of the Great Smoky Mountains with people all over the world. After a successful tenure as a local real estate agent, he jumped at the chance to open Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals in 2005.

From humble beginnings with a handful of properties to now managing a portfolio of over over 185 vacation rentals, Colonial Properties has grown into the largest locally-owned and operated vacation rental company in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge market.

From 2005 to now, Colonial Properties has built a reputation for exceptional guest services, operational excellence, innovation through technology, and community involvement. The unwavering commitment to be the very best to our vacationing guests, property owners, employees, and vendors is truly what sets us apart from other lodging options.

"We treat all of our guests and property owners like members of our extended family. We cherish the relationships that we build with each and every one of our customers. When you interact with a representative at Colonial Properties, you're doing so with someone who lives, works, and plays in the Smoky Mountains. There's nothing better than sharing our love of the Smokies with you," said founder Ben Hughes.
