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
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,
