It’s time for a special Christmas #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing The Brook House VT! 😍 What a perfect, cozy spot to share today! 🎄

We want to commend Danielle and Ben. They just bought this property this year and are new to hosting. If you go through their feed, they have a lot of before and after pictures. Every bedroom in this beautiful ski home had bunk beds and some sort of twin or queen bed… literally every room in the house had a minimum of 3 beds. Now every room has just ONE bed. No more cramming as many people into this house as possible!

They’ve done an amazing job renovating this property and getting rid of all of those extra beds. We are very anti heads-in-beds, and we make that pretty clear.

As a sidebar, we had a pretty good laugh last week where we were staying as we tried to make bunk beds. It’s no joke! Whoever was turning over this property before Danielle and Ben renovated it probably had a hell of a time making all those bunk beds!

Oh, and they have a pretty cute dog too. Their property is BYOB- bring your own ball. Pets are welcome!

Go visit their account, check out their gorgeous space, and give them some love!

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.
