All Seasons celebrates two decades posted on 08/02/2022

Carol Burk moved to Rhododendron in 1997, and quickly established her already-existing company, Carol’s Complete Cleaning, in the mountain communities. After receiving encouragement from customers who owned vacation rentals in need of management, Carol started All Seasons Vacation Rental (ASVR) in Welches in 2002.

“It started strictly organically,” Burk said. “A lot of customers I had from cleaning asked if I wanted to manage their properties and it grew from there.”

Fast-forward 20 years and All Seasons is the last locally owned, boots on the ground vacation rental management company in the community.

Now Burk manages 32 properties in the Mount Hood area and has accommodated travelers from around the globe who choose to plan their stay on the mountain with her company.

ASVR currently has 13 employees, 11 of which are local residents, with the other two residing nearby in Sandy.

Burk stated her business has the highest number of employees to properties managed in the region as part of her company’s philosophy of providing prompt and attentive service to both guests and property owners.

In addition to providing local jobs, All Seasons strives to foster business relationships in the community.

“I try to do as much business with local vendors as possible,” Burk said.

All Seasons provides 24 hour a day, seven day a week customer service for visitors and property owners. The company website states that ASVR also “provides full-service property management including Marketing, Lead Management, Bookings, Property Cleaning, and light Maintenance for our owners.”

Throughout the 20 years running the business Burk has garnered most of her clients from word of mouth and referrals. As part of the company’s focus on providing the best service for guests and homeowners employees attend conferences and training seminars during the year to stay abreast with changes in the vacation rental industry.

Looking ahead Burk plans on increasing the number of houses the company manages to 50. Burk stated the company had been understaffed due to the pandemic but had recently hired two more staff members and were poised to increase the operation.

ASVR’s office is located at 23804 E Greenwood Avenue, Welches and can be contacted by phone at 503-622-1142 or online at https://www.mthoodrent.com.
