Ever wondered what kind of photos are most effective on a tiny MOBILE website for a Inn or hotel??It's a different set of criteria than a 17" display. In this post we explore the science behind effective/enticing imagery on a mobile site. http://jumpingrocks.com/2015/07/mobile-website-photography-hotels-resorts/

nnovative, interesting and clever pet-friendly room design is what we found during our last shoot in Nantucket at Brass Lantern Inn. We have some great before/after shots and 10 tips on how they pulled this off

Practicality dictated that most of our upstairs trim be painted. We are ALWAYS touching it up! Ugh.  I'm pleased to get around to staining and finishing much of our original, hand crafted quarter sawn white oak downstairs. I much prefer it!

We stumbled upon some really amazing room makeovers - and some SCARY "befores" in prep for our presentation at the +Hospitality Marketing Summit  in Colorado next week. Some great ideas and tips in this post from some very smart innkeepers. Lots more of this in Denver

What makes a photo go VIRAL ??- What food photo drove over 15,000 unique visits to a blog post last year? Why?? Think beyond Facebook and Twitter. We explore all this in a new post:

It was interesting shooting this Ashiatsu treatment this week at Lake Opechee Inn & Spa in the New Hampshire lakes district area - this is not your average run of the mill hotel spa for sure

Save money! Make guests VERY happy! Make your own toasting bread. In this post we share a recipe from Maine's  Inn at Sunrise Point and some pictures from our last shoot. I love this no-knead whole grain recipe - less than 90 minutes from start to finish including rising. When you toast it up  it's insanely good

Check out this closet at an Airbnb I'm staying at in Charleston- this is why I love inspected properties like bbcom diamond collection, select registry, etc. It's all in the details!

Why would you stay at an "Airbnb" at all?

Question for the group - - we are speaking at the HMS in Denver next week on " Taking Your Rooms from Yesterday Today" highlighting some of the smart ideas and trends we have seen in the 150 inns and 10 years we have been shooting in this industry. 

Question is what room, paint color sells the BEST? Pale blue, rich red, yellow, neutral, etc?? I have an idea but wanted to get the groups opinion. Thanks!

Hope to see some of you guys there!

+Matthew Lovette I so wish I could go. Will have to wait to see you and Mark until Rehoboth, I hope.
You know our inn and we are still stuck in the 80s a bit (I promise to tackle some of wallpaper this winter) but I think it's the amenities that rule most decisions. Forget the whirlpool tubs, we have 6, and we hardly get a request for them anymore. It's breakfast and king beds and updated large bathrooms with fancy showers and/or soaking tubs and the fireplaces.
Maybe I'm totally wrong.

We recently returned from a food shoot at a long-time client's inn and Mark was compelled to write an open love letter - check it out along with pictures from the shoot
