Dear Brad,

 

NEWS FLASH

 

Monique Polak, travel writer for the Montreal Gazette, featured us on January 24 in a travel article centered on St. Albans. Thank you Monique.

This article followed on the heals of a New York Times piece on September 21.

TRAVEL AGENTS- THANK YOU

We are delighted that a number of travel agents around the country have "discovered" us and have made us their prime recommendation to clients traveling to Vermont. We are most appreciative and grateful.

To those agents and the ones new to our newsletter, a reminder that we are "agent friendly" and honor, with thanks, (as well as promptness), your commission statements.

REMINDER

Between Feb 1 and March 31 we're offering a 3 for 2. Stay 3 nights and pay only for 2. That's a pretty good deal. Of course we can't combine it with AAA, Canadian at par, or other discounts and since this offer is limited only to folks on our mailing list, we ask that when reserving you please let us know that you're coming on the special.

Brad and Jacquie

ISHAM'S CORNER
.

Happy almost spring everyone.

Am I really that special ? Do I really deserve all of this ?

First Mom and Dad adopted me and gave me a great home, with lots of friends, guests and animal visitors.

Then they let me write a monthly column to all of you and are always hearing that "Isham's Corner" is their favorite part of the newsletter.

Next they had me reunited with my brother Gizmo.

Now, of all things, they've created an Isham travel mug which they sell to guests in addition to their fabulous ceramic mug. Well, it's not really an Isham mug. It's an Isham and Gizmo mug but no one has yet told Gizmo.

Almost every guest says they want to take me home. Now they can - with their own Isham (and Gizmo) travel mug and look at me whenever they sip their coffee while in the car. Actually they're pretty cool - Gizmo even has his tongue hanging out.

So come, visit, and take me home.

LOVE ISHAM

P.S. Hannah---I miss you........

FRIENDS OF BUCK HOLLOW REWARDS PROGRAM!

For some time now,  Jacquie and I have wondered how we could create a program which could accomplish a number of marketing goals.  These include

1)   A way of encouraging past guests to return (BESIDES having had a great time while here)
2)   A way of encouraging these past guests to recommend us to others
3)   An additional way of thanking past guests for their recommendations.

We think we've found an answer with a program which does all of these things,  and provides a little fun as well.  

So here goes.

Our rewards program will provide any past guests a 10% discount on their next visit for any new guest who visits us as a result of the past's guest's recommendation.  This is cumulative for each referral.  Refer 10 guests who stay here and your next visit is free etc.  Since I have a "history" of each guest in my computer,  it is easy to keep track.  

So how will we know of the recommendation ?  Two ways.  The new guest can tell us that he/she was referred by you or you can print the little form on the new "rewards" link on our web site, ,  and ask your friend to give it to us when he/she arrives.  It's that simple.  We'll do the rest.

We've done a little test marketing of the idea on a number of recent visitors and they loved the idea,  so let's see how it goes.  The plan is in effect as of now,  so we look forward to seeing how this develops.

If you see any wrinkles in the plan or have additional ideas,  please feel free to let us know.

Brad and Jacquie
