Hosting Hotline: Building Nostalgia Into Your Unique STR Property

Welcome to another Ask Me Anything (Ask Us Anything?) episode! Each week we’ll answer your questions on STR, real estate, OTAs, and everything in between.

Jennifer from @PepinForestRetreat asks:

Building unique properties that aren’t typically “houses” is my passion, but we’ve found that funding and building codes and other restrictions can be really difficult to get for something that isn’t a traditional building. Do you have any experience with (or any podcast guests that have talked about) building something out of the norm?

(Thanks to Mike from @wanderchatt & @findyourrepurpose for the guest answer!)

Helen from @BrookledgeNY asks:

I own an old girls camp, and one of the things that’s unique about the property is the cabins don’t come with bathrooms because the campers used to use shared bathhouses; how can I make this a unique feature on my listing instead of an inconvenience? Also, what should I include as a welcome gift or unique amenity in the cabin, as we’re trying to tap into the nostalgia of summer camp for our guests?
