Those of us who have ventured into a restaurant lately have quickly learned to use our smart phones to review menu items. It’s as simple as opening your camera app and focusing on the black and white squares to connect to a webpage. No paper to touch and instant information at your finger tips. Smart Safety in the times of COVID.
QR Codes and the Vacation Rental Industry
QR codes have experienced a rebirth with our 2020 restrictions. We at Red Barn Vacations have embraced this technology and discovered innovative ways to use it to support our homeowners. In neighborhoods that allow signage, we have not only added our unique branding, but a qr code to every sign. The qr code directly leads potential guests to a deeper knowledge of the home that they are standing directly in front of!
How Does it Work?
If you find yourself driving past one of our elite vacation homes, stop and open up the camera app on your phone. Point it at the black and white box and you will notice that the qr code will be framed in yellow. A prompt will appear at the top of your screen, suggesting that you open up the webpage in your browser. Click on it and dive into the property description, interior photographs, floor plans, reviews, and availability. Easy Peasy.
You can even book the home directly from your smart phone! Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Opportunity to Update
There’s a common thread among our new Red Barn Vacations rental homeowners at Deep Creek Lake. They are committed to the quality of their homes, but have been buried in the murky depths of the two big vacation rental offerings for too long. They knew that investing in their homes was dicey. Neither large local company had the ability to protect those hard-earned investments. The excitement of a small, elite, and ‘Different by Design’ hospitality vs lodging company was just what they were looking for.
Best of Both Worlds is the perfect example! After signing with us, the owners of this perfectly placed lakefront home at the foot of Wisp hit the internet in search of a fresh and clean new look. The boxes quickly arrived, filling our farm with crispy new pillows for every bed, new boxspring and mattress covers, and even a replacement king size bed for the queen in the main floor master bedroom.
Our team spent days in the home, replacing artwork and light fixtures, patching drywall and changing out linens. It paid dividends with a number of fantastic reviews such as this one:
