What is a “Destination Retreat” Rental?

picture of farmhouse with mountain behind itWith the new regulation trend eliminating most short-term rentals, the Farmhouse is now the perfect location for a “destination retreat”. This type of rental includes a residential lease for a legal 31 days, with the option of using a property for a little, a lot, or all of this exclusive-use rental period. There are few properties like the Farmhouse where the location is so special, and in an area with so many fun activities to enjoy, that people will travel from far and wide to come for a longer vacation, a most special private gathering, or combination of the two. Visit the “Nearby Activities” page for ideas how to make a Farmhouse rental an exciting value for however long you stay or come-and-go during your exclusive-use period.
