Golden Stone – Our New Hospitality Property

Once hospitality is in your blood, it never leaves….

On April 15th, 2013, we sold our business, Lopstick Lodge and Cabins. Our plan was to create Savard Hospitality Consulting and no longer own a hospitality property. Well, that was our plan anyway! On April 15th, 2014 we went right back into the vacation rental business by purchasing a neighboring vacation property.

The challenges were many. The cabin had previously been a rental with weak rental history. We need to turn that around and quickly. The cabin needs many improvements. Renovations began and we set about creating the website Using inviting images and content, we created the website. Next we created a web presence for the cabin on Yelp!, TripAdvisor, Google+, Facebook and listed the website on search engines. Employing search engine optimization strategies to increase organic rank, website traffic on the site increased.

We utilized Checkfront Reservation System to manage reservations, payments, and state lodging taxes. Guest can make reservations, make payments and check availability through this system. Online reservations are expected from today’s travelers. The reservation process should be simple and straightforward with the least possible clicks reach reservation confirmation.
