Operator Benefits

Through our Member Benefit program, our accommodation operators will receive premiere marketing and operations opportunities to drive guests to their properties. Member Operators will gain access to various marketing programs, including a custom webpage on the Vermont Huts website, as well advertising opportunities and social media mentions. As a Member, you will also receive expert advice for operational matters, such as maintaining permitting requirements, best management practices, and improving guest experiences.

We offer these extensive opportunities because we believe we can change the way everyone recreates in Vermont. Your hut, cabin, or yurt can provide the opportunities we need to enjoy nature to it’s fullest. As a nonprofit organization, we’re able to help generate greater awareness for Vermont recreational opportunities, grow appreciation for the outdoors, and boost our state’s rural economy by supporting and growing our hut network. If you have other specific needs, please give us a shout – we’re happy to work with you to enhance recreation in the Green Mountains.
