Hi @Snapdragon1 👋


I hope you don't mind, I added your links to your listings, as well as a photo of all 3 and edited the title a little bit. Hopefully, this will get some more Hosts to your thread, and they'll be easily able to access your listings too! (It makes it so much easier for them when all the information is there!) 


I'll keep and eye on the thread and tag some Hosts in if they don't come along soon! 🤗

HI! I love your Maine house. It's what grandma's lake house feels like for me. 😊I am a marketing expert working on building this listing optimization skill for my clients (I'm newer to the listing improvements) but would love to help if I can. 


- I would change your header to reflect the type of house people are looking for summarized in a succinct 4 -5 word phrase (50 character count max), something like:  2 Cabin Retreat Meant for Big Family Memories, or Lo-Fi Wooded Oasis Perfect for Reunions.


- If you shift your photos around and put the shot of both houses at the top of the hill first that would convey how much space is available for large groups. Then the deck photo (although maybe add more furniture) and one of each of the main spaces after that and then pics of the outdoor spaces. At the end add the pictures of the activities together so it tells the story of what can you do here all in one group of visuals. Think of it like storytelling. Set the scene, explore the place, do the fun things. 


- If you get to choose what is shown first on the list of three amenities (I don't know if you do) I wonder why you choose to put dedicated workspace first. Do people often come to work at your house? If they don't, then maybe choose another way to share that you have Wi-Fi because that will still be important information for travelers to know right away. 


-  Your description is large blocks of text that look intimidating to read. If you used more bullets and tried to condense what you are trying to say that might be helpful. I put it into AI with a custom prompt and here is what it gave me:
