Cabin Rental Management by Tin Star & Co.

Cabin Rental Management

Kernek Property Management LLC , DBA Tin Star & Co., is a boutique-style property management service in the Hochatown / Broken Bow, Oklahoma area.  We employ a boutique business model as we focus on superior service, quality and uniqueness of the properties, and leaving a distinct impression on property owners and guests with each interaction. The details truly set Tin Star & Co. apart.

Courtney & Aaron Kernek, owners of Tin Star & Co., thoroughly understand the needs of the property owner, as well as the guest through their experiences as owners and renters themselves. The Kernek’s bring a hands-on approach to cabin rental management, which is often missing in the vacation rental market.

Courtney started her career as broadcaster before returning to university to complete her doctorate. Courtney teaches marketing at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, designs cabins inside and out, and occasionally pops in at the Food Network to compete on baking championships! Aaron earned a degree in marketing and finance at Austin College before playing two seasons in the NFL. After an injury sidelined him he opened Tin Star Furniture in Denison, Texas, much before they know that they would be dabbling in cabin rental management. Along with furniture he began Kernek Construction and also built residential properties. After many years of providing furniture for cabins in the Hochatown area, the two decided it was time to build some cabins of their own. In 2016, Courtney and Aaron began their Hochatown adventure purchasing the lot where they would build their dream cabin- the Rust Bucket. At the time, neither had plans of starting a property management company, but they found so much enjoyment and passion in renting their own vacation properties that the business literally found them!

While Courtney and Aaron weren’t thinking of renting other property owners’ cabins they began receiving requests from construction and furniture clients in reference to cabin rental management.  After some deliberation and coffee LOL they decided why not! The two are very hands-on in the management with Aaron overseeing the properties. Meanwhile, Courtney focuses on the bookings, website, management platforms, and marketing.

They have been married almost 15 years and have one son, Grayson. Grayson is involved in the business (or dragged along) every step of the way! He is an expert towel folder and innovator of creations not yet implemented LOL! He loves to offer tips on “upgrades” that can be made whether it’s cabin building or marketing!

Tin Star & Co. has focused on combining their talents in construction, home furnishings, and property management to create a value for their clients that sets them apart. They run the day-to-day operations and oversee that every hand-selected property is cared for like they do their own. Further, they use a curated mix of modern marketing techniques to ensure maximum exposure in the vacation rental marketplace. The goal has never been and will never be to be the biggest cabin rental management company in Hochatown, but it is to be the BEST! Our goal is to offer over-the-top, award-winning, exceptional service to our property owners and renters, while providing owners with the most income their property is capable of generating.
