Sustainable is not a great marketing term. Green seems better, but still not great. For me, these words trigger questions and sometimes negative feelings of guilt, sacrifice and often, distrust and confusion. Is this green thing really better? Will it help protect and preserve the planet for future generations? Or, am I being duped? And this leads to fleeting thoughts of vague bigger questions: What do my choices say about what kind of person I am? What do I value and what do I really seek in this life?
Do you get these feelings too? Do you get flashes of fleeting questions? Wondering what you’re really seeking? Is it possible that green and sustainable things could lead to feeling more alive, learning new and exciting things, new connections and possibilities? Often those fleeting, nagging questions and the mildest impulses they trigger is the doorway to the really important questions and the deepest satisfactions. These doorways, metaphorical and literal are places in time and circumstance opened by just the right people. That’s how Michele and I got here at the Timber House Resort and why we want to share it with you.
Our mildest impulses led to buying a classic 1970’s-era family campground many years ago. One thing led to another, and we’ve been building an exciting new kind of hotel on the bones of that retro trailer park. Our customers love it and we want to share it with you.
Introducing the Timber House Waterfront: Retro-vibe, sand beach, wind, water and connection to nature. Where tourists meet local people and enrich one another through their interactions. A fun, meaningful, sustainable, green tourism experience, without the negatives. It may just point the way to a better world.
