About This Episode

Meet Jami Jenkins — the creator of The Carpenter’s Cabin — a top-rated, luxe cabin stay in Southeastern Ohio's Scenic Wonderland - Hocking Hills.

Jami has always had a knack for the creative. She remembers drawing up floor plans of beach cottages in elementary school and building furniture for her Barbies. 

A graphic designer and event planner by trade, Jami loves using design as a way to communicate the story behind a space, an idea, or an experience. 

So, when it was time to build the first cabin on the 32 acre plot that Jami and her husband Scott had purchased, Jami knew she wanted an eco-friendly escape that was truly special — that had a soul if you will. 

And that’s when the idea of building a space to honor the memory and legacy of her father, a lifelong carpenter, was sparked.

This week's episode of Behind the Stays is brought to you by Ping — the secret tool the best Airbnb hosts use to maximize bookings.

Ping makes it easy for guests to be notified when their favorite Airbnbs become available. 

Ping is a simple widget that lives on your website (or direct booking site) and allows your fans and followers to sign up to be notified if their preferred dates become available.  

Here’s how it works. 

Jimmy sees that you’re booked the whole month of October, but he wants to be notified if any 3-night window in the month becomes available.

Jen is a returning guest and wants to be notified if any week in June, July, or August becomes available. 

In a matter of seconds, Jimmy and Jen fill out the simple form and will be Pinged if their requested dates become available. 

And as a host, you will immediately get pinged via email with Jimmy and Jen’s contact information and requested dates enabling you to build up your own database of guest email addresses.

Ping — it's what the best Airbnb hosts use to maximize bookings.
