About Lost Trails ATV Adventures
After struggling to find a safe and legal space to ride their ATVs, Leslie Novak and her family decided to create one. Open since 2011, Lost Trails ATV Adventuresis a 2,000+ acre park near Scranton with a variety of trail-riding terrain. “There’s a huge subculture of ATV enthusiasts in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania region, but it’s very rare to find a legal area to ride. We provide a safe space for the community to enjoy their passion.”
Visitors of the park are welcome to bring their own ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes, or rent from Lost Trails. Novak and her family also offer guided ATV trail tours.
Novak did not have an online booking partner before Peek. Instead, she accepted walk-in and phone reservations. However, the influx of phone calls, voicemails and walk-ins proved to be overwhelming. “I would return voicemails late into the night during our off days,” she said. “I also had to hire an extra assistant to help four days a week with reservations and check-in. Sometimes she’d be on the phone for 10 minutes while people waited in line.”
Novak wanted an online booking partner to streamline her business operations, and save her time and money. Opportunity came when a Peek representative reached out to Novak. “We were already established within our community, but we wanted to take the next step.”
With Peek, Novak saves 200 hours annually from taking phone and walk-in reservations, a significant amount of time for a small, eight-person company. Now, 90% of her bookings come from online. Novak also saves $13k a year–the cost of an entire employee–thanks to the convenience of online booking and Peek’s optimized booking flow.
In addition to the time and money she’s saved, Novak is impressed by the friendliness and expertise of Peek’s staff. “The entire onboarding process was seamless. I really clicked with Alex [a Peek Account Executive] who sold me on Peek,” she said. “I worked with Eric during the installation process and he was phenomenal! I didn’t know what I wanted exactly, but Eric helped us find what we needed.”
Her favorite Peek feature is Clone Bookings. “I love Clone Bookings! If a customer wants an ATV rental or Wildcat rental, I can clone the original booking instead of entering the same information all over again.” She also uses Peek’s custom questions tool to protect her business from potential legal disputes.
Overall, Novak is extremely happy she partnered with Peek because it gives her business the opportunity to grow. “You want the right people on your team when you market your business. Partnering with Peek was the biggest step we took as business owners.”
