our story

JET's journey began as a real estate development startup, turned premier

real estate investment platform, and multi-brand enterprise, specializing in developing niche brands in emerging demand markets.

 

CEO Jesse Baker grew inspiration from firm belief that social interactions

are an opportunity to cultivate positive and meaningful relationships. Jesse ensures genuine care and personalization to be injected into each and every Guest Experience. 

JET Hospitality has created travel accommodations with an alternative approach. We have taken the good old-time travel days of yore, and

injected it to modern day by providing fun, functional,

and affordable travel to get you outside.

Our properties offer the choice of Bungalow or Lodge Suites, Tiny Homes, Glamping, and traditional RV sites. Additionally, there are fabulous shared amenities, an in-house events and retreats team, great surrounding regional attributes/activities, and Wow-worthy experiences for everyone.

Guests are set to JET and enjoy wonderful domestic travel.

Projected forecasts 

JET Hospitality attracts over 60% direct bookings. Our model allows low-entry point

and rapid growth.  We are driving NOI and corresponding value. 

JET acquires underperforming properties with zoning and inventory. We quickly rehab + rebrand,

and then move into our group marketing model. We have grown from 1 to 5 locations in twelve months.

 First deal created nearly $2MM equity following stabilized appraisal on six months income history.

We believe that we are a helpful resource for alternatives to Airbnb.

Many of us are tired of congested lobbies, worn-out home decor, and the overall hassle of traditional lodgings, so we created a different approach for travel. Remember road trips, airstreams, and of course (the classic) roadside motel? It may not be 1957, but a rebirth of classic Americana adventure is here.

 

We cater to RV goers, with full hookups and easily access slips, but have a range of lodging options at all of our locations so that your non-RV friends and family can join in on the fun too! (Tiny homes, glamping options, and lodge or bungalow accommodations can be found at all of our JET properties.)

 

We've now opened up three properties in the West, with our eyes on location four. Whether you're an adventurous nomad, family of four, or have been bitten by the post-COVID wanderlust bug-- everyone can reset at Jet. Each JET property boasts beautiful natural surroundings, awesome on-site amenities, and one-of-a-kind "welcome home" hospitality. We're also paw-friendly. 

Glamping, tiny homes, bungalows, and even RV options--all of our properties have a wide array of lodging choice. Our personal favorite? GLAMPING. Take a deluxe hotel suite, swap out the walls for canvas, the tacky central air for a cozy wood stove, add some pizazz--and you've got glamping!

 

Each one of our Glamping Tents comes with a deluxe king or queen size frame and comfortable mattress, high-grade hotel linens, plush pillows, a classic Pendleton blanket, bistro table seating, rug, chandelier, USB accessible table-side lamps, bottled water, towels, a cozy woodburning stove, wifi, a spa-like central bathhouse, and the sweet sweet sound of nature to lull you to sleep. Peep the Glamping page for our Pacific Dunes resort location here.
