Meet Jason and Monique — the founders of The Vermont A-Frame…one of the OG instagram famous A-Frames in New England. 

Jason grew up vacationing in Vermont, but it wasn’t until he took Monique up from Jersey for a weekend that the couple realized how special this part of the country really was. 

Soon after that trip, Jason and Monique began dreaming about how they might own a vacation home in the area that they could escape to on long weekends and perhaps rent out to others on occasion.

Tune in to hear the story of how the couple found the perfect A-Frame (after visiting more than 20 others!) and transformed it into one of the most desirable vacation homes in the Green Mountain State.

In this episode, I chat with Jason and Monique about:

  • What it was like owning a unique stay back in 2017 and how their business has been impacted since the covid boom
  • The best and worst experiences they’ve had with creators and influencers
  • Why they often ignore their dynamic pricing tools in favor of attracting the core guest avatar
  • And so much more.
