Truth – listing on Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com and Expedia isn't enough…

Are you self managing your vacation rental? Are you mainly relying on Airbnb and VRBO for your bookings? Is your Property Manager just pushing your property out to these channels without augmenting with their own marketing? In our saturated market VRBO and Airbnb aren’t enough and their exorbitant guest fees are eating your margin. And with guests gravitating to the lowest price and most lenient cancel policies you are leaving lots of your rate and the huge risk of last minute cancels on the table. In our model the channels are a much smaller piece of the booking equation resulting in higher margin bookings and less cancellations. We mitigate your revenue risk with our forward thinking and aggressive marketing at highly competitive management fees – and all without a dependence on Airbnb and VRBO. Yes, we list on these sites but mostly to help build our base of guests for future remarketing and repeat high margin visits.

A Forward Thinking Approach to Marketing and Managing Your Important Asset

Post Pandemic Performance Matters!  During the pandemic the Smoky Mountains experienced a mass influx of visitors resulting in epic rental performance that may never again be matched.  These performance levels set the bar at peak levels for property owner expectations.   We worked closely with owners to realistically set expectations while returning back to normal demand with a higher level of cabin inventory in the market.  We engaged a unique mix of aggressive outbound marketing strategies and dynamic pricing and guest incentive models to mitigate the expected decrease in performance due to a return to normal visitor traffic and an increase in competition in the market place.  We successfully limited the performance reduction for our property owners and avoided the massive price competition engaged in the channel marketplaces such as VRBO and Airbnb.  We set and exceed realistic expectations and won’t make false revenue performance estimates to earn your business.

We establish long term relationships with property owners who are looking for peak performance out of their rental property. We are forward thinking and pro-active when it comes to methods and procedures to keep operating costs low, while employing aggressive and truthful marketing strategies to market our premium properties. Most importantly, we average less than 1 cabin leaving our rental program per year with current cabin owners under management adding new properties each year!  We don’t openly market our services,  yet based on current cabin owner new cabin acquisitions and word of mouth are adding complimentary cabins to our rental program each year.

Providing pro-active maintenance to minimize long term operating costs coupled with a fee structure that provides more bottom line value to cabin owners is our main operational objective. The owners in our program appreciate the extra value. But superior customer service and quality drives repeat visitors and better overall performance. We’re ranked in the top 10 in Gatlinburg by visitors for providing such service. We work hard for our owners AND for our guests. These efforts have a positive effect to the bottom line for our owners who are a critical part of our success.

While the pandemic provided amazing returns, returning to normal our year over year performance has increased in each of the non pandemic years – including in 2023.

That’s right! Our cabins have outperformed the prior non pandemic year in each of the last 5 years, even during the tough economic downturn and national expansion and local consolidation of rental management companies. We are more efficient which translates into cost savings, and we have a great reputation as well as strong marketing programs. This combination has delivered for both our owners and our guests looking for the top rated cabins.

What Owners Are Saying About Our Services

“What a breath of fresh air getting our owner statement on time and without a bunch of petty charges for replacing wine glasses, brooms and bottle openers. It’s also nice not to be nickel and dimed on linens, trip charges and other aggravating items. I only wish I had made the decision several years ago to switch to Elk Springs now that I see what your marketing machine can do.”
-E.W. (recent cabin owner who entered the program after 4.5 years with another management company)

I just wanted to say thank you for doing an incredible job renting our cabin! Please thank all of your staff as well – they’ve been great to interact with in the few times I’ve contacted them. All I’ve gotta say is you have exceeded my expectations. Great customer service and great rental income so far! I hope it keeps up in the “off season”. I’m beginning to think there is no off season with Elk Springs. The cabin is already booked excellent in September.
-J.F. (new owner who entered the program after 3 years with another management company)

To follow up with you about how sincere about my happiness with your company I wanted to let you know I received the May rental check today and I believe it is my largest so far! I am happy. We are definitely going in the right direction.
