Thanks for your reply.
We were pretty full occupancy since May 1, monthly stays. then dropped off suddenly. We already are in the process of updating dedscription anyway, figuring it was time to do that. We have the $99 per night, Air BnB suggestion was to lower the price to $84. Go lower, and get the bottom feeders, true. January, Feb, hardly any guests over the 5 years we had this. This is a pattern.March bookings start up, and continue through the summer. This December hardly any views, even. The $84 by Air BnB puts us lower, maybe go back to the $99.00 however, I think that the guests are paying a large occupancy tax by Buncumbe / Asheville. Most of our guests this year came from 300 miles away this year.
A note: we cannot put a microwave on the counter as the heavy duty plugs are not there. We did have a Cuisinart tabletop oven, and experimented but that cooking was a disaster. no more. Just the microwave. We even put in a fan to remove cooking odors, but no one used it or could even understand how it worked. All one had to do was pull the chain, that opened up the and turned the fan onl During the Covid era, people did thank us for the UV filter unit, evidently now they don't care as they unplug the thing, so much for that. And yes, we do need to update the pictures. .
