Interaction with guests
We have been renting since 1993 and have a guest book on another website with more than 50 five star reviews. ( Sorry,but we have chosen NOT to offer a fire pit, but we have a propane barbecue.) Over the years, we have had many returnees. One couple came 17 summers in a row, and a couple of our ski families stayed 5 to 7 successive years.(We have a huge sliding hill in one nearby field.) I like to interact with guests before they arrive, and am available for questions while they are at the house. I use both email and phone. Our caretakers live very nearby and can usually be available for emergencies.
