My place is close to just about any activity you can think of... skiing, ice skating, water sports, waterpark, zipline, skating park, arts and crafts, golf, tennis, swimming, hiking, etc. etc.
Non-peak dates when most kids are in school are only $440 for an entire week. Other than AirBNB's fee, there are NO additional charges. (The resort charged $250-$300 for a single night in the summer of 2015)
I am a student. My parents have an active rental business and I am slowly learning about it to earn extra income for my studies. They often help me. I have lots of reservations already scheduled in 2017, so I am in the process of building a strong base of supporters with positive feedback.
