Shedding aside, real Christmas trees hold a place in our hearts, like handmade ornaments and tattered stockings. The ritual of picking one out every year feels new each time–regardless of age.
Owners of North Carolina vacation rentals, listen up: The time is ripe for marketing properties near Christmas tree farms. Not only should those key words be advertised prominently on your profile page, but you should have the pictures to prove it. Get festive. Unleash your inner Santa.
Such material is super time-sensitive and needs to be up ASAP.
The above property–a five-bedroom cabin in Banner Elk, N.C.–mentions the Choose and Cut Christmas tree farm with which it occupies land. Think of the possibilities. People come to cut down their Douglas Fir, then make a night of it in the cabin–complete with egg nog, Christmas carols by the fire and a multiple screenings of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
Any tradition that involves family time is a celebration worth sharing. So go ahead and orchestrate your Christmas tree packages now. Your renters will thank you for it.
