Just a nice little woohoo and a thank you for being a nice place to chat, rant and cry.

We have managed to surpass our $ totals for all of last year already. I'm glad that after several suggestions around here that I...

  1. Raised my rates in the summer.
  2. Stopped discounting single days.
  3. Changed my online booking discount.
  4. Stopped taking all telephone reservations.
  5. Started offering some flexible pricing that allows people to pre-pay their stay for an extra discount.

PS: 16 days before our vacation... 16 days... 16 days.. I must hold on for 16 days...

That is wonderful news. It is a good way to end the year. a toast to you both .

 

I know For us we increased by 12% this year so far. Winter I imagine will close down to a snail pace as the mountain will stop most from travaling through such high  pass.

This prompted me to do a compare to last year. I was startled to see that adding the 4 nights on the books for Oct (and that could be more with a phone call or e-mail), we will be $40 ahead of the end of Oct 2010- AND that is with being closed up for 6 weeks!!

We're doing the happy dance also. We're up more than 10% from last year!

May it continue for all of us. It goes around to make the economy work. They pay us, we buy supplies, (collect & pay the taxes), etc, etc... And mine is with all the discounts (military and reduced rates with funerals) & freebies I give the City and the nights I had to pass along because I was going somewhere for the City. I gave away a 2-nighter last night because the couple in the shared bath really did not want to share (I had told her I did not expect to have another request). Glad I passed because DH wants to do a photo shoot day tomorrow if weather cooperates.
