“Isaac's course on Experiential Hospitality is a game-changer. From in-depth case studies to invaluable assets, every detail is meticulously covered. It transformed myperspective, shifting me from a place of uncertainty to a roadmap filled with confidence and actionable strategy. For anyone considering venturing into the hospitalitysector, this is the compass you've been searching for.”

“If you've ever thought about creating an upscale retreat, boutique resort or vacation rental community, then Issac French's Experiential Hospitality Masterclass will provide you with the necessary tools to accomplish your goals! I was uncertain about joining this Masterclass, but after the first few lessons, I knew that I made the right choice. Issac has first-hand experience of how to successfully find, design, build, market and operate a 1st class hospitality destination. Don't think twice like I did, do it now!"

—Mason Orradre

“The Experiential Hospitality is one of a kind. If you are serious about working on a project in this space, then this would be the perfect starting place. Is it cheap? No. Is it worth the money? Definitely! Isaac took months, maybe years (for some), studying and working to condense his knowledge into the perfect resource. You will not only learn a ton, but you will be equipped with a clear roadmap and resources. I have never done any projects like this in my life and yet I was talking with a professional real estate developer yesterday and they were impressed with one of the tools I had used from Isaac's masterclass. This masterclass was worth every penny!"

—Tanner Cummings

Experiential Hospitality™ Member

“I had been considering an experiential hospitality project for a little over a year when I found your masterclass. What I needed was to get insight from someone with verifiable success in such a project, who could help usher me through the entire process. Your masterclass was full of useful information about the planning, building and running of a property like this. It also had so many tips and ideas on better utilizing resources and increasing revenue. (Just one of these ideas could pay for the masterclass!) I'm thrilled with what I've learned and how it will help our team create the vacation experience our patrons want. If you're on the fence as to whether you should purchase this masterclass or not ... just do it.  You'll be glad you did."

Hey! I'm Isaac - Founder of Live Oak Lake.

From stumbling upon a piece of land on Zillow to opening our doors in January 2022, Live Oak Lake's journey has been quite a ride.

In just our first year, from a modest seven doors, we did $1M in bookings, netting nearly $600K with 80%+ direct booking rates. Our audience exploded, amassing over 160,000 dedicated followers worldwide. After successfully exiting Live Oak Lake in the fall of 2023, I was inundated with the question: "How did you do this?"

As demand for consulting grew, my calendar filled up quickly. I realized there was a need for a course that could provide comprehensive guidance based on my own experiences.

I'm excited to unveil a comprehensive, focused, and incredibly valuable educational and community experience, tailored to inspire the future of hospitality.

I found Isaac's first property right when he got it going and thought "Man, I have to call this guy."

At the end of the call I said, “Whatever you do next, can I please invest?” Since that call I've gotten incredibly close with him. The guy's a visionary. He's honest and ambitious, a visionary who sweats the details. He’s into the numbers but still an artist. This man masters a skill, puts it into action, and get results better than most anyone I've seen...and I've met a ton of super successful entrepreneurs.

“Isaac is an expert in using technology to efficiently run his vacation rental properties. He has a keen eye for design and creates choices that not only look awesome but are also functional.

—Levi Kelly, Cabin Tours Creator - 580K+ Subscribers on Youtube

A man in a suit and tie smiling at the camera.
“I’ve interviewed over 100 hospitality entrepreneurs on my podcast, Behind the Stays, and I’ve never met someone in this industry so committed to excellence in ALL he does. Isaac is humble, smart, and has zero tolerance for ‘just OK.’ What he’s built at Live Oak Lake is truly extraordinary and I for one can’t wait to see what he does next. A few decades ago, a young entrepreneur named Issy from Canada had a simple vision for creating exceptional experiences…that vision became Four Seasons. If I was a betting man, I’d bet that the creator of the “next generation” Four Seasons might come from Waco, Texas…and chances are his name will be Isaac.”

—Zach Busekrus, Founder, Behind The Stays Podcast
