Todd / Dean,
I would like to thank both of you for a great experience in the purchase of my log cabin. Todd was great letting me bug him with all the questions down to electric receptacles and up to the loft. The cabin was delivered in perfect condition, which given the road we live on was not very easy. We had a couple of minor issues with the cabin and I got a call from Dean and it was taken care of in a couple of days. I have had contractors over and they are all very impressed with the workmanship of the cabin. Thanks again for a great job.

To Todd and all the folks at GRC,

We are extremely pleased with our new cabin, the overall quality and craftsmanship has exceeded our expectations.
It was a pleasure dealing with Todd in the sales dept., he was very informative , flexible, and patient with us during the planning through completion process. We visited the factory a few times and always felt welcome as we browsed around the production line. The craftsman were more than willing to answer my questions and offer suggestions. Many people have stopped by to tour our “cabin on the lake” and were surprised to find out how reasonably priced our custom RV cabin was. After researching several other cabin manufacturers, we are certain we made the right decision by choosing Green River Cabins.

On behalf of my wife & myself, I wanted to drop you a word of thanks for your superior service and craftsmanship on our recent cabin purchase from your company. Starting with your patience and working with us on the initial customizing designs, you never indicated to us a sense of urgency or rush to get the design completed. You were ever so tuned into details and follow up on our request, even down to which end to mount the tongue of the cabin.

During the building process, you always welcomed us into your facility to check on our cabin and during that time, even allowing us to make changes that we wanted along the way. The completion of our cabin was right on schedule as you had promised. The delivery was flawless and the delivery crew was most courteous and knowledgeable and right on time as you had said! One area in which I was most impressed was upon our “hook-up” of all our utilities, we discovered a few minute items that needed attention. Upon your receiving my e mail about these areas needing attention, you had a crew drive to Chapin, SC to correct these items the very next day!! In the day & age of which we live in, where the customer is taken for granted, it is extremely satisfying to work with a company that stands up to everything they had promised, even after the sale! We would never consider working with any other company again on future needs of a cabin! Judy & I wish you, your company & employees a bright & prosperous future!

I recently purchased one of your Green River Cabins with a custom floor plan through a great dealer.
I appreciate your willingness to customize my cabin and take the time to turn it into my perfect log cabin studio. The workmanship and attention to detail is also evident – it’s wonderful to know that there are still people doing business who take pride in their work and care about their product – it is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for making my log cabin dream come true

We, like most people, hardly ever (how about never?) take the time to praise a company or product. The workmanship and level of service at Green River Cabins, however, compels us to sing their praises in print. We are typical customers, in that we built from afar with plans to transport our cabin even farther. Dean and his crew were entirely accessible for questions throughout the process via phone, e-mail and during our trips on site. Distance is not an issue when your builder takes pictures along the way as you need to see how something looks.

We asked for a LOT of custom changes to our interior, some of which GRC had never built/installed before. EVERY TIME, they took our request as a challenge to solve. Although their business could easily take the assembly line get it in/get it out as quickly as possible approach, it is so obvious that they take pride in making each cabin a unique home that meets the needs of the owner. A perfect example: we were picky about a custom floor color. When the product didn’t stain as dark as we wanted, Dean didn’t just say I’m sorry, but it is what it is. Instead, he brought in a stain expert that figured out which product we needed that would stain through the poly coat. That’s above & beyond.
As for quality of work, we came face to face with GRC’s workmanship – literally. We decided to stain the interior of our cabin so, we got a close-up view of every square inch, floor to ceiling, which revealed absolutely nothing but superb construction. To get a head start, we actually spent several weekends staining the interior while still on the Campobello lot. GRC offered power, lights, restrooms, (even sanders when we klutzily spilled dark brown beam stain all over the walls at 1 a.m.!) – anything and everything to make it convenient for US.
As two very pleased customers, we would be glad to talk to anyone contemplating going thru this process. We know choosing GRC as our builder was the best decision we could have made.

Dean,
It has officially been one year we started our vacation cabin rental business using Green River Cabins and we couldn’t be happier. We’re making money as expected.

You and your crew at Green River Cabins have been nothing short of exceptional.From the initial start up consultation through the cabin production, product support, and business advice, you have been a source of continuing education and support.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that a significant factor in our success has been the product itself. The cabins are a perfect marriage of detailed engineering and excellent craftsmanship. Everything about the cabins, from their outstanding construction to their effective utilization of space consistently results in rave reviews by our guests.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for a job well done.

Your help, support and friendship have made a lasting impression on me and my family. That kind of impact should not go unnoticed. We hope to continue our relationship with you and your company and to order more cabins in the not so distant future.

Take care and God bless,

Eric HuberCold Mountain Cabins

Integrity and flexibility, the two words that come to mind about working with Green River Cabins. Living up to responsibilities, listening to their client and trying new ideas allowed me to create a cabin that was perfect for its need. This cabin design also had never been built before. I recommend and commend that them for that.

I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of the hard work that was put into our cabin.

After seeing one of your cabins on your lot we could tell that you put a lot of quality into building them. Then after touring your facility and meeting you for the first time we knew that we wanted one.

As a state licensed electrician I can appreciate the quality and neatness of the wiring, as well as the carpentry and plumbing.

The items used in the cabin are high quality.

You were a great pleasure to work with by you making sure we got exactly what we wanted. We got our cabin delivered ahead of our scheduled date and have had no complaints what so ever.

We have had lots of comments that people could not believe it was not stick built on our land and not on a frame with axles. The quality is unheard of. This is something that will last. I would greatly recommend your company to build a cabin for anyone.

Sincerely,

James Brooks

We purchased 7 of Green River’s luxury park models a month prior to opening, and the only complaint we have is we don’t have enough of them! With minimal marketing we have been able to book over 100 cabin nights in a month of operation. We get compliments daily on the craftsmanship and the beauty of our cabins. We are thrilled with our purchase!

Green River Cabins was recommended to us by two independent sources, both of whom rated the company very highly. Our experience was perfectly in line with their reputation.

Middleton Place is a National Historic Landmark which includes America’s oldest Landscaped Gardens, a House Museum that was the home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence and Plantation Stableyards. We have exacting standards for function, quality, and aesthetics. Dean took the time to come to the property, understand what we needed to accomplish, and custom designed 2 cabins for us.

The security cabin sits at the very front of our property where over 100,000 guests see it. We wanted the cabin to be functional and add to the beauty of the property while being affordable. Unbeknownst to us, Dean went so far as to research and test three different paint systems that would give us our particular color, longevity, and mildew resistance. We got exactly what we needed.

The cabins are very functional, extremely well built, and meet every aesthetic criteria that we considered. And, the process was terribly easy for us, the customer. We authorized the design and then the cabins were built on time and on budget. We were even able to watch the cabins being built over the internet.

When it came time, Dean and his crew integrated seamlessly with my staff to deliver and install the cabins. So within days of completion, we were “open for business.”

It was a pleasure working with the folks at Green River Cabins. Each member of the staff was professional, polite, and competent. It was clear to us that we came first. It is somewhat rare and very much appreciated when we are able to work with folks that commit to us and deliver exactly as promised.

Sincerely,

Charles Duall, President

Hello from Dick and Pat at Baileyton RV Park. Just wanted to let you know how things are going here.

Race weekend went well. The cabins worked out great! And as we thought, EVERYONE loved them as much as we do. So much in fact that SEVERAL of them asked about how to get their name on a list for August. Fortunately though, for us, UNFORTUNATELY for them, they are already rented.

Our dilemma is how we are going to handle the rental of them, we may have to do a lottery or an auction –THEY WERE A HUGE HIT! Many of the people asking – probably at least a dozen stated that they would leave their rigs at home and use the “fuel money” to pay for renting one of the cabins. We are VERY happy with the product, have had nothing but RAVE reviews, comments etc. and are so glad we went with your cabins. You can go to our website baileytonrvpark.com and see them if you’d like.

We have reservations from Indiana, Florida, and Virginia so far. So the word is getting around and your name will be well known. We have given LOTS of people your info and website address so your “hits” should be increasing.

I couldn’t be more pleased.

The structure is as advertised and feels as I hoped it would.

As to comments on the staff and the buying experience, overall it would be in the top 5% of all purchases, and the top one half of one percent of anything related to housing or construction.

Best to Julie.

Dear Dean,

I wanted to write this letter to let you know how please I am with my new unit. Also, I would like to let you know that I did a lot of research before I selected Green River, and I am extremely glad I did.

Your capabilities of building a unit with different configurations was very impressive, but the three things I appreciate most are service, quality, and price. I am sure that I cannot find anyone that could measure up to your standards. As far as your personnel, they are the tops.

I enjoyed working with you, and if the opportunity ever arises, I would definitely recommend Green River Cabins.

Again, Thanks!

Dear Dean,

Now that we are spending every get away weekend in our new cabin , we wanted to take this opportunity to tell you first hand what a quality organization you have. We love the cabin; we spend all our free time in it and wanted you to know how blessed and thankful we are. We can’t say enough positive about it. So, it is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for Green River Cabins.

From the beginning, Green River Cabins was a wonderful experience. Dean spent lots of time with us as a perspective buyer- showing us plans and explaining our options. You were very helpful and informative. At no time did we feel rushed or pressured to spend more than what we were comfortable with.

“Thank You” for the effort that went into putting a room and porch addition on our cabin. As well as, storage building with the same look as the cabin. Your project manager, Derek, is a one-of-a-kind professional, patient, and experienced man. Green River Cabins definitely strives for customer satisfaction. We appreciate the good craftsman ship and function ability found within our cabin.

Dean, you are a man of your word – You delivered our cabin and addition on time as promised.

Once again, thank you for your hard work and dedication to our cabin. We hope to work with you again in the future. We are excited about our cabin – the cabin of our dreams.

Sincerely,

Dean,

With over a month now passed since taking delivery of our Green River Cabin, I felt compelled to drop you a note to let you know, not only how pleased we are with the finished product, but also to say a sincere “Thank You” to you and your staff for a job well done in the execution and completion of our cabin. Our cabin truly is perfect in its ability to meet and serve our housing needs.

We still get excited when we think over the past 4 months, and the host of major changes that have so rapidly taken place. From the serendipity of finding GRC, to the ease of the design and construction phases, and through the delivery and set up, we are amazed and thankful to have found a product that met-all of our needs and wishes in style, options, design flexibility, and price point. Thanks, Too, for your Patience, knowledge helpfulness, and all around courtesy to us from the project start, to cabin completion, to the assistance after the sale. The cabin truly feels like home already, and has proven to function and feel far more spacious than either of us would have thought possible, even with the space filled with furniture.

In closing, please accept our continued thanks and appreciation for creating beautiful, high quality product that has proven to be an ideal space for us. Looking forward already to can number 2!

Sincerely,

Johnathan E. Mayes & Bryan K. Jones

Dean and the good folks at Green River Cabins,

Well, it has been a little over a month since our cabin was built, delivered, setup, and Derrick’s crew came to build our porch. On our first visit to your plant, Dean spent several hours explaining the construction details and answering our many questions. Thanks for your patience. Before we left, we knew that we were going to get our cabin from GRC.

Dean helped us get our custom plans finalized and the construction date set to meet our wishes. The folks at GRC didn’t have to, but they worked with us to get the information needed to get our permits and other local details straightened out. GRC scheduled the porch building the day after our cabin was set on our property. And, three days later we had our cabin and porch ready to enjoy. Derrick and his crew came to our location on a Tuesday and worked professionally and expertly until the porch was completed on Thursday. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of our finished cabin retreat.

The pleasure we are having living in and showing off our cabin home is hard to put into words. The many friends and strangers at our resort have stopped by to look and give a “Wow!”. One fellow for the resort said the only thing wrong with our cabin was that it wasn’t on his lot. We are looking forward to years of relaxation in our Green River Cabin.

Thanks again to Dean, Derrick, and everyone at Green River Cabins for making it all possible and almost pain free.

Mr. Dean J. Garritson, President,

Having refurbished and built many homes over the last 30 years, we have come to appreciate the fine qualities that you and your staff at Green River Log Homes exhibited throughout the planning, construction and execution process of the cabin you built for us. We have always looked for quality, value, competence, accommodation, and most of all a timely finish with closure. It was a lucky day when we met you Dean Garritson!!

What we really appreciated about you from our first meeting (which by the way ended in a firm contract) was your confidence in the quality of your product, your research and careful selection of state of the art construction materials, your personal attention to the importance of all those critical construction details that one can’t see but will surely affect the end experience, and your ability to articulate the many ways you could accommodate any special features we were looking for in our log cabin.

You came to the table with ideas that took our preferences to a whole new “this is how we can do that” level. Not only did you listen and comprehend, you took the time to design, engineer and execute with a passion as if you were building your own! You were a one stop shop with all the answers on the spot and a “Whatever you want, we can do it” attitude.

The wood selection in our cabin is extraordinary. Every board looks like it was hand selected and precision cut to dove-tail into the boards on either side.

Your turn key approach with recommendations for the selection and installation of plumbing fixtures, appliances, air conditioning, lighting, and utilities saved us countless weeks of searching and having to deal with an endless list of vendors and contractors. Your concept should be a model for all cabin builders to follow.

The outside of the cabin is just as beautiful as the inside. We are not even thinking about hanging anything on these gorgeous wood walls. The natural knotty pine color palette moves from creamy yellow pine, to a redwood/cedar, to chocolate in the knot holes. The wood grain patterning is much more interesting than anything man-made. The exterior logs were properly cured and have very few cracks. Your staining job was flawless. And by the way, if you don’t let Dean Garritson build you a porch, you left the dessert on the table.

This is where we spend our quality time, and the low maintenance is very important to us. I spend more time admiring the oversized porch timber posts, log railings, and even the porch ceiling than I do the gorgeous vista we have off our porch. When it comes to a log cabin, it is all about the WOOD!

If I had any message for a prospective log cabin buyer it would be this: Once you visit with Dean Garritson and Green River Log Cabins, STOP HERE – It doesn’t get any better than this. Don’t screw up by going anywhere else. You will have no regrets and it will be the best purchase decision you ever made.

How many times can one truthfully say about a purchase, “It was so much better than I ever expected.” Well, here’s a First for us! We can’t thank you enough, Dean. Please share our sincere thanks and appreciation with each and every person that worked on our cabin.

With much appreciation,

Karen C. Combs & Anthony R. CombsCharlotte, NC

Hello Dean,

We have been spending so much time in our new cabin that I’ve let all my email correspondence slip.

The cabin is exactly what we wanted and turned out to be more than we expected.

When we first decided to look for a cabin, we explored other companies that produced park model cabins. After investigating a number of them, it became clear that your product was exactly what we wanted. While the others looked like log cabins, yours WAS a log cabin.

The floor plans you offer, provide an excellent starting point. We were able to find a basic design that would work for us and then customize it to suit our needs perfectly. The entire process we very easy and fun. We were able to stay in touch with you throughout the entire process and have all our questions answered as we went along.

After we finalized our plans, it was so nice to actually watch our cabin being built over the Internet. We saw the entire process..from the floor being laid and the log walls going up to the roll out of the factory for delivery. The manufacturing was really amazing to watch.

When we took delivery of our cabin we couldn’t have been happier with the final product. It was everything we expected and more. The interior of the cabin is beautiful and cozy with the natural wood grains adding a warmth that no other park model we looked at had. The construction was solid and well done. Rustic but at the same time, refined. It was exactly what we had hoped for.

Everyone we have shown our cabin to is so impressed with quality and craftsmanship.

I’ll email you a picture or two of the inside….we are just too happy with it to put into words.

Best Regards to you and Julie

Dennis and Sandy

Dean,

I just wanted to say thanks again for the nice job you did on our cabin. It’s been a pleasure doing business with Green River Cabins.

Prior to choosing Green River Cabins, I looked at many “log cabin on wheels” assemblies. For instance, there are two on display at US Highway 11 and Interstate 85 at the South Carolina-Georgia state line.

As I called various vendors, I discovered that most were fixed floor plan designs that came with one or two options at most. Prices often started in the mid 40’s. Customization was difficult to come by, and I generally found myself talking to a retailer rather than the manufacturer.

Then I got a tip from a fellow named George Schmitt. A mutual acquaintance had seen one of your cabins that George owned. He pointed me to your website.

Three things impressed me about Green River Cabins: First, the quality of wood and the quality of woodwork in the units. Second, the ability to customize. Third, the price advantage of dealing with the manufacturer.

Regarding the wood, I am very pleased with both the wood and the attention to detail that is evident in the construction of the cabin. Everyone who sees the cabin is equally impressed.

Regarding customization, you were kind enough to do not one custom design for me, but two. That allowed me to pick the one that worked best, and that best fit both my budget and my cabin site. You also helped to save me cost – for example by putting a transom window in the sleeping loft rather than a gable. I really appreciate being able to select – to the foot – the length of the cabin, as well as being able to select the features. I got a cabin that was within budget and is perfect for the site.

Regarding price, even when the design was for a 36′, dual sleeping loft unit, it was still well below the prices retailers were quoting. I was really happy to be able to save money while customizing my unit.

Keep up the good work!

Regards,

Philip

We have 4 luxurious Green River Cabins on site and they are all renting well.

If every company serviced its customers like they do at Green River Cabins, the world would be a better place. Every time we ask for anything, they are prompt, courteous, and just wonderful to deal with. We have turned to them for great cabins, advice, good support services in the way of insurance and web design, and service after the sale. It has been absolutely clear to me that all they care about is me and my business. I know when I call them I’ll get exactly what I want and if they have to charge me, I know it’ll be a good value. Love being a customer, they’re tops.

Dear Dean,

We want to let you know how much we appreciate all the efforts made by you and your employees in building and locating our dream cabin in the trees. It is better than we could ever imagine.

Our story with Green River Cabins began upon noticing your company’s sign in Campobello on a trip to Bat Cave, North Carolina. From our first meeting with you and seeing the quality of workmanship that went into the cabins on the lot, we were convinced this is what we wanted. The dovetailed corners, exposed timber beam ceilings, beautiful knotty pine wood interior, gable window options, and general layout impressed us no end. You were involved in every step of the process, always available and willing to answer questions, make changes to the floor plan, and offer suggestions and invaluable input. You always handled our many change orders with patience and a “no detail is too small” attitude. We became more excited as we watched the progress of the cabin on the cabin cams and were greeted by the industrious shop crew on the occasional visit (whose work on the cabin was done quickly, expertly, and with much attention to detail), and we were thrilled to see the completed product on the lot. The hauler you commissioned had to navigate steep mountain roads with switchbacks, and against great odds he expertly situated the cabin next to the foundation prior to craning.

The location of our property above 3,000 feet presented certain challenges because of 110-mph wind zone requirements, and since we wanted space for a workshop/garage, we used a crane to set the cabin on a block foundation. You were happy to interface with our site engineer to ensure everything was where it needed to be in a project such as this, and because of your concern for the critical details, the setting of the cabin was executed flawlessly, saving us considerable time and money we could have incurred had things gone awry.

All of the contractors referred by you, from grading and septic to masonry and electrical, were exceedingly professional and timely. When we had our kitchen addition built on site, the roofing crew did a terrific job of making the transition seamless. Your cabinet builder is also to be commended. Bill did a beautiful job on our kitchen cabinets and provided other custom items at our request to make efficient use of space. Our clean-air Fujitsu heating and cooling system, which you recommended for our particular application, has provided us with unsurpassed comfort (and kudos to Joe for a great job on installation!).

Most of all, the on-site construction crew, led by Derek, built our kitchen and spacious decks, working long hours at an astonishing pace. To say they were phenomenal is an understatement. It isn’t often that contractors become like friends (or in this case, family), but Derek, Steve, and Charles were so much fun we hated to see them go. They took pride in their work and went out of their way to make sure every finished detail was accomplished to our satisfaction. Much of our time is spent on the front deck enjoying the natural surroundings, and we are in constant admiration of the work that went into its completion.

Now that we have been in our cabin for four months, we cannot say enough about how beautiful, comfortable, and cozy it is, how it offers spectacular views from every window and porch, and how it has opened up a new world to us for being one with nature. We have received overwhelmingly complimentary comments from friends and family and recommend your company to anyone considering something similar. Green River Cabins is “beyond all” when it comes to value, quality, and customer service. One of the qualities that most impressed us about you is that your commitment to customer service doesn’t end when the cabin is complete. Case in point: During a lunch meeting two months after we moved into our cabin, you pulled out a pad of paper and inquired, “How can we improve on our product and what were our lessons learned?” To us this suggests a true professional who is dedicated to getting it right.

We are currently in the planning stages of adding one of your super-loft studio cabins to a covered breezeway connected to our primary cabin and eagerly anticipate working with you and your construction crew once more.

Thanks again,

Dave and Claudia

Dear Dean,

We are so happy!

Our cabin at The Promised Land is finished, and we are really enjoying it. It has exceeded our expectations for space utilization and for comfort.
Working with Green River has been a pleasure, and now we have a superior product at a competitive price of which we are very proud.

To be able to conceptualize what we wanted, to deliver it as we requested, and to make improvements in the design that we did not think of, is remarkable. Thanks to Dean, the inside crew, and the outside crew for everything!

Dear Dean,

This is better than we expected! We’ve owned 2 Green River Cabins but this was out first modular cabin.

I am extremely impressed with the absolute flexibility of your design. Our cabin looks out on a waterfall exactly as we had planned. We planned the front of the cabin around that view. It was clear during the design process that all you wanted was for us to get what we wanted. Thank you.

Debra and I have been in the cabin for several months now and we are very impressed with the quality of the cabin. The worksmanship is fabulous. Each member of the GRC team has been a perfect gentleman whether in the plant or on site. We had crews of up to 8 of your folks here and to a man, they were wonderful to be around. I just can’t say that about most construction crews.

Last but certainly not least, we appreciate the value we have in this cabin. Our appraisal is much more than we paid and that’s a rarity in the current market.

Very well done. Thank you for your commitment to us and your customers.

All the best,

Representative Mike Barnes and Debra BarnesDillard, GA

Our cabin is just exactly what we had hoped for. It is comfortable, attractive, and practical. Friends who have visited have been amazed at the engineering and planning. It lives so much bigger than it is.

You guys went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything worked as it was supposed to, and we really appreciate it.

Because our land is prominently visible from a state park and a conservation area popular for hiking, we wanted our cabin to be hidden as much as possible from the hikers, yet provide us great views of these peaks. Remarkably, we got the great views we wanted, and yet still have a hard time finding our cabin from on top of Snake Mountain. The brown roof and natural exterior really do make the cabin seem “hidden” in the woods. Attached is a picture we took a few weeks ago from the top of Snake Mountain looking at our land. If you look at the “Southerland Valley” picture, there is a small peak right in the center of the picture. Our property is just above and to the left of that peak, and has about 4 acres in pasture. You can see two apple trees in the middle of the pasture, but not the cabin in the upper left hand corner of the pasture area.

For years we enjoyed camping on our mountain property, but as the kids grew up and I grew older, the idea of plumbing, electricity, and climate control grew more appealing. With the cabin, we feel like we get all the benefits of camping in terms of being in close quarters with the kids in a beautiful place, but with all the luxuries we want such as warm air, plumbing, refrigerators, and hot water.

Thanks to all the folks at Green River Cabins for their commitment to quality. A neighbor came by the other day who is a builder and said he had never seen a moveable unit built as well as ours. He marveled at the engineering and craftsmanship. He noted that our cabin would be around for a long, long time into the future.

The cabin has been wonderful to have this fall, and we have already made some great memories. It is just what we hoped for. And as I said before, everyone we worked with really was first class in all communications and work on the cabin.

Sincerely,

Jason A. Walser, Executive DirectorThe Land Trust for Central NC

Dear Dean,

We just wanted to thank you and the entire Green River Cabins staff for the outstanding job you did on our new cabin.

It’s really rare nowadays to find anyone that takes such pride in their work and it shows in the quality of our cabin. From our first visit with you all the way through the process until our cabin was delivered and completely set up we were impressed with the way everyone who worked on it seemed to care that we were really pleased.

Thanks again for everything.

Vernon and Sheila Rogers, GRC 606Bishopville, SC

Dean, it is with a great deal of pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for Green River Cabins. When we started this venture for our farm…..it was you and your organization that really made it all happen. The quality and construction of our cabin exceeds anything we ever imagined.

How you worked with us to design just exactly what we envisioned was quiet the task, but you, Dean Garritson did it all and then some. The new window design for our front rooms made our little cabin come alive. In this setting, these windows and the front porch, you made it the most delightful get away we ever dreamed, and the total look of the cabin on this property has stimulated many questions from friends and local neighbors as to our builder.

The most incredible part of dealing with your organization was the attention given to Terry and me after the sale as we watched you and your people in building our home to perfection. After moving into the cabin, we could only rejoice in what a smooth and pleasant building experience this whole endeavor was for us living 400 miles away.

YOU all are the ‘best’ of the best when it comes to professionalism.

We just want to add…..when doing business so many times you come away just glad that it is over but in this experience……we are happy to say we come away having gained a very special friend. God Bless you and your company for years to come

Sincerely,

Brenda and Terry CaldwellCooley Springs, SC

Dear Dean,

Alice and I would like to let the Green River Cabin Construction Team know how happy we are with not just our Green River cabin but also with the process of getting there.
Everything we asked for your team was able to provide.

Realizing the dream of having a log cabin on a nice mountain property for average working folks without breaking the bank is a challenge. After considering several conventional log cabin companies and Green River we decided to go with Green River. Looking back now we are so glad we did; even though we are not done, our cabin is comfortable and we can go there and relax.

If we had bought a conventionally constructed cabin it would be considerable time and money yet before we could enjoy the cabin.

In our case, adding the additional multipurpose room is a clear winner. We are looking forward to making many memories there.

Pictures attached but look forward to updates as we add a porch, landscaping and hopefully a runway out front to land a plane.

Thanks so much,

Hugh & Alice O’HandleyPelzer, SC and Rogersville, Tn.

Dear Dean,

Five years before you bought the company, we knew that we could rent cabins and do well.
At the moment, we have 5 Green River Cabins and we are making money – more than what we’re used to.

Before we rented cabins for a living, we built houses. We know how to build and we recognize quality. Green River Cabins produces a great rental cabin that our guests just can’t break.

Thanks for being so helpful. We have gotten a lot of good advice from you, on taxes and other issues that have helped us a lot. It’s great to get a good product at a fair price and then get more than we expected.

Thanks for the work you have done for us and for standing behind a great product.

We wish you the best and we’ll be back for more

Dear Dean,

We didn’t think we could design exactly what we wanted and get it so easily.
Our land has been in Doris’ family for generations, and this cabin replaced an old termite-ridden cabin that held a lot of special memories but was beyond repair.

When we worked with you, it was clear that you wanted us to design the cabin exactly how we wanted it. In fact, I think we designed 3 different footprints and made renderings of more than a handful. You were very willing to build whatever we wanted, any way we wanted, to fit our situation. One example was that we have free natural gas on our site, so you put your company to work making sure that we could choose whatever we needed to in order to take advantage of this opportunity.

We ended up with just what we wanted – at a very reasonable price – on time and within budget with no surprises.

Our cabin will probably “grow” some over the years, and we’re glad to know that we can depend on you and your company to figure a way to add exactly what we need.

Doris and I decided to order a cabin from you guys because everyone we met there was so darn friendly. We like the way that the guys who are building the cabin cared so much about what they were making. It has made a difference in the final product.

Derek and the on-site crew are the most efficient, best builders and most well mannered folks that we could hope for. Everything from design to on site work was effortless and right on the money.

I worked with field construction crews for years in my business, and I know how challenging it can be. You make it look easy. It was amazing seeing how quickly and how well everything came together.

Thank you. We love what you have done for us and will recommend you whenever we can.

Dear Dean and GRC staff,

I want to thank you for building us such a lovely cabin. You, Matt, and the staff made the whole experience a painless time. Thank you for your patience – I know we had lots of requests but you were also so kind. I was a joy working with you all and I LOVE the end result. We are pretty much all settled in and enjoying showing the cabin to others.

The cabin is very well insulated. We are at the end of May and haven’t had to turn on the Air Conditioning yet, while others have had to run their A/C frequently.

Come see us when you’re in Hiawasee.

Thank you again,

Jo and Ralph BishopBlairsville, GA

Dear Dean,

Mick and I are delighted with our cabin! It’s been a pleasure working with you and your team. I think I hold the record for the most revisions prior to actually building the cabin but thanks to your patience and support we have exactly the cabin we’d hoped for at a price we could afford.

We happily recommend you to everyone who is thinking of building a log structure and would do business with you again in a heartbeat! Thank you for making it all so easy for us.

Warmest regards,

Mick and Nilda Burke

Dean,

I’d like to express the thanks of my Dad, Mom, and me to everyone at Green River Cabins.

The cabin is absolutely beautiful and many people comment favorably when they see it. The construction is solid and durable.

The insulating properties and energy efficient appliances cause the utility bills to be significantly lower than the neighbors’!

Thank you most of all for your patience, flexibility, and dedication. I know that you spent many hours working with my Mom on the phone in order to meet the exact specifications that she desired. You did your utmost to reduce the cost of the cabin while maintaining the quality.

You showed you flexibility when it came to scheduling the transport of the cabin from your production facility to my property in West (By God) Virginia.

You and your staff showed dedication when you transported the cabin during some extreme snowy weather to meet our deadlines.

Thank you and Regards,

Walter Cyphers and family

Dear Dean,

Wow, we love the cabins. And we really love them on site.

In fact, after the first one was under construction, we designed a second immediately.

You guys were great to work with. Every night Lisa and I would talk and think about the cabin and every morning I’d call you and make some changes. It was a perfect partnership, we sweated every detail, you implemented every detail!

What didn’t we customize? New loft design – no problem. New kitchen design – no problem. Change appliances – no problem. Stain cabinets, modify internal air flow, install for 9 speaker surround sound, all no problem – and done on the fly while under construction. And very reasonable charges for all this too. We were charged the same thing during construction as if we had planned it on the front end. I’m sure this made it harder but it was clear that you were going to build our cabin(s) the way that we wanted it.

They turned out great and the cabins are on a killer spot that we’ll enjoy for decades to come. We have a great place to play now and some really neat cabins to stay in.

Thank you for all you did for us.

Other customers have expressed very well their experiences with Green River Cabins being flexible, dependable and producing a quality product. But my husband and I can add a powerful emotional sentiment. My mother was a “Tilley” and fifty-six acres of land remotely located off of Tilley Creek Road, in Jackson County, North Carolina found its way to our responsibility. And, as the last Tilley descendent in the area, we wanted a cabin that would not only keep the family legacy alive, but we needed a builder that would not destroy the integrity of the land and wildlife.

We toured log home shows and companies in multiple cities as well as subscribed to many publications featuring different companies and styles. By the time we ran across Green River and met Dean Garritson, we felt we were knowledgeable enough to do a side by side comparison on a number of factors. But, having been in customer service for many years, I knew that professional integrity and the aspects of service could make or break an experience for us, regardless of the construction.

Will and I each had our individual preferences on details both inside and outside. At every request, the answer was “YES”, with no argument and with a fair upgrade price. Green River didn’t just meet our expectations, they exceeded them.

If we are lucky enough to do another cabin on a different site on our land, it will definitely be Green River.

Dear Dean,

Working with Green River Cabins was a delight.

We now have four beautiful new cabins that are also very energy efficient. Dean was able to make a new cabin design that satisfied all our wants and wishes.

Installing 4 cabins at once is not easy. Especially where we put one of them. But, despite that, from start to finish, the project went smoothly. I can’t say enough about how happy we are with Green River Cabins.

Dean/Julie,

We wanted say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone at Green River Cabins. I know we encountered some set backs but all in all we knew that God was in control of entire experience. You were always available when any situation came up that we needed your advice. You showed endless hours of patience and guidance. We LOVE the results and just as important…..our two grandsons (6/4) were just here and loved Grandpa Jack’s and Grammys new cabin.

Again thank you and God’s blessings to your entire staff….

We finally fulfilled our dream and spent the past summer in Colorado in our Green River “get away” cabin. It was everything we had hoped for!

When we first visited your factory, we were totally impressed with your workers and their fine workmanship. Working with you, Dean, designing our cabin was delightful. Prior to finalizing the order, we did request a few minor changes which were received well and graciously implemented. We are completely satisfied with the quality of our Green River cabin and want to take this oportunity to thank you.

It was a pleasure doing business with you and, when asked where we got our adorable little cabin, we never hesitate to tell them!

Very Sincerely,

Don and Marda Hanford

Dean Dean,

You guys are great! And the new cottage is awesome.

We brought you an idea….and you made it into a cottage.

And you did it on time, on budget and built right. Wow! If everyone did this, the building trade would have a better reputation.

The cottage is solid as a rock.

It’ll be a great work and play space for us. It didn’t take us long to embrace your motto, “how would you like it, sir?” We made a lot of interesting modifications to give us the look and function that we wanted. You researched materials and processes to give us exactly what we wanted. I just don’t think we could have found anyone to get things done as rapidly and effectively as you did.

We run a family owned business too and we know what it takes to get things done. Green River Cabins gets it done.

I particularly appreciate the way that you supported us with the local building folks and regs. Thank you for making this easy.

We love the way it looks and are eager to play!

Thank you for a wonderful addition to our beach property. We will enjoy this for years to come. You and Julie come on down!

Wish our best wishes,

Ben and Christine Taylor
