To our Partners,
Welcome to 2021, the year of opportunity. Now we are in stride to return to the path we were forced to stray from last year.
With plenty of hurdles cleared along the way, the vacation rental program remained a focus for us. As I have transitioned into leadership of this program, it has been my goal to smooth the edges, instill standard procedures, and build efficiencies for all parties involved. The most critical move was welcoming Tara Carrubba to manage the program, whom most of you have had a chance to work with and get to know. Her attention to detail, communication, and problem solving has brought additional clarity to an already strong team.
Once we reopened our properties after 80 days of closure, our guests were eager for an escape. Vacation rentals became the focus of traveler’s demand offering privacy, space, a reputation of cleanliness, and the Woodloch experience and spirit. However, we faced some big challenges with our state’s restrictive measures, in particular forcing us to significantly reduce the amount of guests we could host.
Today we are still faced with governmental restrictions, though waning, but we feel cautiously optimistic as we approach summer that they will be alleviated. We now feel the demand starting to grow, glinting signs of progress. While we still have challenges and unforeseen hurdles to overcome, the Woodloch experience remains a strong beacon for travel, and our region. We are a bright light of respite for families looking to reconnect and just be together.
We look forward to getting back to some normalcy and working through it all together, with you.
