2015 Vacation Rentals on the Rise in NH Lakes Region

With more American travelers expected to choose vacation rentals this summer, 2015 is expected to be a record-breaking year for Preferred Vacation Rentals.

According to a 2014 survey conducted by TripAdvisor, more than half of the responders said they’d prefer renting a home, where they can share time with loved ones in a comfortable, home-like setting, to staying in a hotel. Fifty-two percent of those U.S. travelers said they were planning a rental stay, compared to 44 percent in 2013. In addition, 94 percent of Americans who’d recently stayed in a vacation rental were reportedly satisfied with the experience.

Those trends are consistent with those in the Lakes Region. Just days into spring, Mark Borrin, owner of Preferred Vacation Rentals, reports that the 2015 summer season is already off to a promising start. In March, Borrin said that he’s already seen a 17 percent increase in bookings over this time last year, indicating that the demand for quality rental options will continue to rise.

Fortunately Borrin and his staff have been planning ahead. Striving to meet growing demands, Preferred Vacation Rentals opened a second office in Wolfeboro this past December. The family-owned company, founded by Borrin’s parents, Mel and Tina, in 1978, now operates out of two locations in the heart of the Lakes Region: its flagship site at 34 Whittier Hwy and its newer office, located at 25 N. Main St. in Wolfeboro.

Borrin and his team are actively seeking additional rental properties to ensure all clients can enjoy their dream Lakes Region vacation. “It’s a great way for a homeowner to capture some additional income,” he said, noting that Lakes Region vacation rental rates average over $2,600 per week.

With well over 200 vacation properties in its listings, ranging from quaint wooded cottages to sprawling island estates, Preferred Vacation Rentals is the place where Lakes Region summer fun has begun for several generations of vacationers, while putting property owners’ cares to rest. “It’s not just about renting properties,” Borrin said. “Our team is dedicated to helping every visitor have the very best experiences possible in the Lakes Region. We consider ourselves the finest vacation rental company in the region, as we strive to provide exceptional service to both our homeowners and our guests.”
