Hot Tubs are the #1 requested amenity. 15% of searches include this year round feature, and it is the reason many choose a particular property.

Wifi is a necessity for today’s traveler. It is looked at as a “utility” like electricity. Guests need to stay connected to work, social media and more.

Air Conditioning is also an expectation for many people. If you cannot get central AC, consider split systems or standing units for upper level bedrooms that tend to get hot.

Pool Tables give guests an option for indoor entertainment and are popular with both families and groups of couples staying together.

Private Pools are well worth the investment if you have the space to add one. Indoor pools have an especially good return on investment since they can be used no matter what the weather.

Outdoor firepits/places are a way to expand gathering space and have become sought after. You can go from basic to elaborate – basic will get the rental, elaborate will bring them back.

Community Pools are something to consider if you are buying a home. Communities like Blakeslee, Ski Harbor, Sunplace and DC Highlands are popular because of their pools. Continue reading “Top Tips for Deep Creek Vacation Rental Owners”
