We're not booking events at our properties right now, and we wanted to explain why.
We book our properties through Airbnb. They have been a great partner to booking both accommodation and events, providing us with a great way to reach a large number of guests, take payments, protections for our properties and for the guests. It's been a great solution for the start of Old Haigler Inn.
We are one of a small number of Airbnb hosts that have properties that ideal for events. Most Airbnb properties are only meant for overnight accommodations and not events or gatherings, even though we have heard that "house parties" happen from time to time.
We have previously booked BOTH events and accommodations through Airbnb, but last month, Airbnb announced a global party ban for all Airbnb properties. You can read about the ban and why they instituted the ban here.
We are working with Airbnb to find a solution for properties like ours that are perfect for events, and we hope to have a solution for that in the coming weeks.
For now, we're not booking events at our properties, but you are more than welcome to look at The Lodge, Carriker Cottage, or The Rooney Residence for events in late 2020 and beyond. And stay tuned for more properties that will be opening up from us in the next 6 months. We're excited to share more details with you as they're available.
As always, you are welcome to book overnight accommodations at any of our properties and enjoy a welcoming environment and the amenities we have to offer.
