The Importance of Maintaining a Standard Inventory

We’re shedding light on why we, at CottageLINK Rental Management (CLRM), prioritize maintaining a minimum standard inventory across our properties and how it significantly contributes to the overall satisfaction of our guests’ experience, whether they’re staying at an economic 2-bedroom traditional cottage, or a large 8 bedroom lakeside mansion.

Why We Require Our Registered Property Owners to Maintain a Minimum Standard Inventory

At CLRM, ensuring a consistent and high-quality experience for our guests is paramount. It’s all about enhancing the guests’ experience. We want your guests to love their cottage vacation and want to return again and again, the maintenance of a minimum standard inventory helps ensure your guests’ vacation goes off without a hitch! Therefore, we have established a set of guidelines that all registered property owners must adhere to, including the maintenance of a minimum standard inventory. This practice serves several purposes:

Why Some Items Are Negotiable and Some Aren’t

However, items related to safety, comfort, and basic functionality are non-negotiable to ensure the quality and integrity of the guest experience.

It reflects our commitment to excellence and enhances the overall guest experience, making their vacation truly Five-Stars!
