Our three unit guest house is full this weekend. All of these bookings were done in short notice.
Our place is the hypothetical perfect place we wrote about in the above blog post complete with board games.
Two of our guests are on weeklong work assignments in the area. A family of three escaping the zombies is arriving on Friday.
We’ve been working on a “retreat strategy”. This could be writers or artists. Could also be someone that needs a little isolation.
If you need to be locked down somewhere you don’t really want it to be at the Hampton Inn along with 300 coneheads.
These bookings were short notice. Our planned April bookings were cancelled, but we are optimistic they may be replaced by this type of guest.
This strategy is not for everybody but there may be a way to carve out a market niche.
