"Onward and Upward"⁣

December is often crunch-time. I have to finish all the accounting from the season, get the rates ready for the upcoming season, organize my files so that I am ready to start fresh in 2022. I have to get in any room-blocks we need for the season before reservations explode in January, and make sure the website is up to date and ready for the traffic. Its always a little bit scary this time of year - what will next season bring? Will I be ready? But amazingly, no matter how ready-or-not I am, it all happens smootly and every season is great. ⁣
