She is an avid Real Estate Investor owning a double-digit portfolio of short and medium-term rentals.

It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing Dunraven River House 😍

This unique property is located in the Catskills and there is so much that we love about it!

They have a private creek and swimming hole on two acres, and an old, rustic barn that can be used for dining and events. We don’t think we’ve ever seen a property like this! They could have taken an old barn and just gotten rid of it, but instead, they have built an entire experience around that old barn!

Go to their feed and see all the things they’ve done with this beautiful barn and this historic home. We also love that they are female owned and run (girl power!). Well done, Mary!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!

Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
