The importance of understanding human relationships in rental management.

I just read the latest blog post from Barefoot Technologies and it rang so true with me. The article speaks about the rapidly changing face of vacation rental management & how technology has transformed the industry in the past few years. There has been an online explosion of vacation rental options that can overwhelm guests when searching for a place to stay. We often get calls from guests saying “I’ve been searching for days, I can’t look online anymore, just tell me what to book!”. I’ve experienced this myself when searching for vacation rental properties online – a great “research” experience, by the way, for anyone who works in the industry. I was quickly reminded of some fairly simple, yet crucial virtues when searching for a place to stay – managers who answer quickly, make their response personal & seem genuinely interested in helping you find a place to stay that is also a goof fit. In fact, I will happily pay more for a property where the management appears to care. I love the last sentence of the post as it sums it up so beautifully: More than ever, ultimately what will make or break our companies is how well we understand human relationships and whether we are smart enough to heed the golden rule.”

At Lodging In Telluride, human relationships is what we are all about. We want each & every guest to feel as if we care about their Telluride stay, because we genuinely do. In fact, many of our guests become our friends. Telluride is not only the place we call home, but it is a place that we want our guests to love as much as we do. For your Telluride lodging needs, call us on 888-998-6471. You can also check out our vacation rental condos by visiting our website.

At Barefoot, we love to get the perspective of the people that work in the vacation rental management trenches every day. Below, you will find the current musings of someone who works in a long standing, high end, vacation rental company. I think you will all understand the perspective that is offered…

“When someone asks me how things are changing I can barely catch my breath.   To say the world of vacation management has changed rapidly since the advent of internet technology is a major understatement.  By the time I finish this article, things will have changed even more.   The fact is that the way that anyone over 15 has learned to communicate (never mind write) has become out dated.   Look at the text messages of any 13 year old – where an entire new world of shorthand is quickly unfolding – where words like great have become gr8.  Who has time to spell? 

What’s relevant in all of this – in the evolution of the vacation management industry?    In all of this there’s a paradox of needs emerging. –   A counter-intuitive relationship of sorts – where this rapid transit trip through the valley of the internet seems to be spewing out people who are desperate for some type of human connection.

Hence, enter the 2014 customer.   Whether it’s a baby boomer or a generation Y, there’s little divide.  They, all of them, still want to be heard.   They may be well versed in the internet, and how to search, but after several forays into the vast cosmos of web sites, they get burned out.  

In fact, experience seems to suggest that our guests end up overwhelming themselves – whether it be the baby boomers who started out in their early years using pencils, paper and even learning cursive – to the other end of the spectrum – the generation y kids – born in a more rapid era and helicoptered into reliance.

Bottom line, almost no one who calls wants to know anything more about web sites.   By the time they’ve called you, they want you to talk to them, nurture them, coddle them, peer under the covers of their lives, talk to them about their kids, or not, love their dogs, disparage pet lovers and, finally, walk them to the door of their dream vacation home.   And by then, you had best know enough about them to put them in the cleanest house in the program, or the most luxurious, or the one with the best views, or the most beat up one – the one that reminds them of their childhood visits to the rustic, romantic beach cottages devoid of air conditioning and television but full of memories of childhoods past. Because vacation homes, like slippers, need to be the right fit.

 And if they call to complain because things didn’t go all that right, they want the same connection, empathy, a sincere apology, and the time it takes to listen, and let them know they’ve been heard.  If they don’t get that, we all know where they go.  Right past go, to those dreaded social media sites where they find a welcoming platform and hundreds of “someones” who will listen to them.

In the end, if you look at the vacation industry data in terms of bookings, nothing much changes there.   Same highs, same lows, same spikes for everyone.  So much so that It seems like the collective world of vacationers reverberates on some sort of psychic, conspiratorial plane – ignoring all of the algorithms and data that managers agonize over from year to year.  If you have trouble believing this, just take a look at the stock market.

What’s my conclusion in all of this for 2014?   More than ever, ultimately what will make or break our companies is how well we understand human relationships and whether we are smart enough to heed the golden rule.”

The Ten Ski Towns You Absolutely Must Visit This Winter

Want to plan a ski vacation this winter but don’t know where to go? Look no further than the ski-town obsessed staff here at Curbed Ski, where we live and breathe all things snow. After traveling extensively to ski towns big and small, we’ve carefully curated the definitive list of the top 10 ski towns you should visit this winter. All of the spots on this list have more than just amazing skiing. You can also expect awesome food, a laid-back vibe, and pedestrian-friendly downtowns. These are our favorite spots in ski country, right now.

10. Park City, Utah: We debated putting Park City on this list at all, what with the ongoing legal battle between Park City Mountain Resort and Talisker Land Holdings. And while PCMR’s future is definitely still up in the air, we can’t deny that Park City is one of our most favorite ski towns. You have a walkable downtown, delicious whiskey, tons of dining options (just check out our list), and three world-class ski areas all within a few minutes drive. Get your shit together, PCMR, and you just might top this list next year.

9. Stowe, Vermont: As the most picturesque ski town in the northeast, we love Stowe for its old world charm and modern-day amenities. There are also gorgeous ski lodges that will cater to your any need, just check out Top Notch Resort & Spa or Stowe Mountain Lodge.


From the Taos Ski Valley Chamber of Commerce

8. Taos, New Mexico: Although 18 miles from its namesake town, Taos Ski Valley makes this year’s list because of the brand new lift up Kachina Peak, set to debut this season. New owner and billionaire Louis Bacon is pumping loads of money into the ski area, starting with a new triple chair that will eliminate the grueling hike to the top of Kachina Peak. Plus, Taos Ski Valley can get pounded with storms when the rest of the west is dry.

7. Bozeman/Big Sky, Montana: The Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport just might be the easiest (and cutest!) mountain airport in the country, with fireplaces galore. But we also love Bozeman for its laid-back, walkable town, its breweries, and for a restaurant scene that’s on the up-and-up. You can’t beat the skiing at nearby Bridger Bowl, but its still worth the 50 minute trip to Big Sky Resort. Catch a powder day on the Lone Peak Tram and we guarantee you’ll never want to leave.

6. Crested Butte, Colorado: Despite the fact that the town may soon betransformed into a Bud Light fantasy town, we just can’t get enough of this Colorado ski town. Crested Butte is a real town with everything you could ask for: kickass food (try Django’s, the Secret Stash, or Teocalli Tamale), awesome drinks (don’t miss Montanya Rum), and some of the best skiing around. It’s also one of the most reasonable ski towns you could stay in, with lodging costs less than many other resorts.
Aspen, Colorado via Aspen Snowmass

5. Aspen, Colorado: No best-of list would be complete without Aspen, the crème de la crème of ski towns everywhere. Yes, it can be pricey, but it also has one of the best downtowns in the high country, with delicious eats (see our full list here) and lots of fun bars. Don’t miss après ski at Ajax Tavern, a hike up the notorious (and amazing!) Highlands Bowl, and family-friendly skiing just down the road at Snowmass. This year or next, Aspen just doesn’t get old.

4. Sun Valley, Idaho: We have to be honest, Sun Valley was a revelation to us last winter. Even with a below-average snow pack, we caught a great powder day on Bald Mountain and couldn’t get over how much fun the mountain is to ski or snowboard. In town, Ketchum charms with a thriving local art scene, loads of activities and some of the best ski town food we’ve tried. Don’t miss Rickshaw, an insider hot-spot serving top-notch Asian street food. The well-appointed Knob Hill Innis your best bet for lodging.
Jackson, WY via Jackson Hole For Sale

3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming: In the summer, hoards of people visit Jackson on their way to the nearby National Parks. But come winter, if you’re in Jackson Hole you are probably there to ski. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has some of the best vertical in North America; you can expect long, sustained, steep runs that will have you grinning ear to ear. If you’re looking for ski-in/ski-out lodging, you can’t do better than the Four Seasons located just steps from the Bridger Gondola. In town, don’t forget to make a few black runs at Snow King Mountain before grabbing a beers at Snake River Brewing. This past winter Jackson Hole got hammered with snow, so here’s hoping you can score some epic powder days this year too.

2. Whistler, British Columbia: Anyone who has had a good day skiing Whistler Blackcomb knows that it doesn’t get much better than this. You can ski for miles down sustained vertical and some of the longest runs on the planet. Sure, this past season was a bit rough in terms of snow, but when Whistler has snow you won’t want to be anywhere else. After skiing, head to Araxi Restaurant + Bar or try your hand at champagne sabering at the Bearfoot Bistro. We love the Four Seasonsor the Fairmont Chateau for luxurious lodging not far from the slopes.

1. Telluride, Colorado: How do we pick our favorite ski town? First, we look for a place where we can park the car and never look back. Second, there needs to be a legit town with locals, restaurants, and jaw-dropping scenery doesn’t hurt. And of course there’s the skiing.Telluride fulfills all these requirements and more. It takes a bit longer to get to this spot in the San Juan Mountains, but once you’re there you’ll be hooked. Telluride’s free gondolas allow visitors to easily navigate between town and mountain, the skiing is great for families and for adrenaline-addicted powder junkies, and did we mention it’s beautiful? Check out the Inn at Lost Creek, the Lumiere, or the New Sheridan Hotel for lodging, and don’t miss drinks at There or a dinner at Siam, easily one of the best restaurants in town.
