New Beginnings…About Us

Family Business

It all began with an unexpected detour along the picturesque roads of Hico. Having spent their formative years immersed in the hospitality industry with their parents and grandparents managing numerous oceanfront hotels in Maine, Brian and Kara understood the significance of offering a delightful and adaptable destination where guests could savor unique experiences. From their earliest days, they eagerly served juice to visitors exploring the enchanting Maine coast and provided weather updates. Their passion lay in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere, enabling guests to truly savor a VACATION YOUR WAY!

As Kara and Brian realized the pull to return to their roots….they remembered their great grandmother, Mimi, used to say, “It’s a wonderful day when we are Happily Filled. Come back and join us again sometime!”

He decided to invest in real estate a few years ago and realized tiny homes were the opportunity of a lifetime to create cash flow. Brian’s creative entrepreneurial spirit has expanded the family to business to short term rentals of big and tiny homes, storage facilities, Equipment rentals and an RV park!

Aminda Daviduk

Aminda Daviduk (Zuzolo) moved to the United States with her family in 1955 from Tufo, Italy. Settling in the northeast where she would eventually marry her husband, she led a long and successful career in nursing and raised a family of three boys. She had always dreamed of owning her own business and, when Aminda decided it was time to step away from nursing in the late 1980s, she purchased her first Dunkin’ Donuts franchise in New Hampshire.

Over the years, with her oldest son Alan Jr. working with her, she continued to expand her properties to include 5 Dunkin’ Donuts locations, 3 Pizza shops, a 14-unit shopping mall, a convenience store, and residential complexes in 3 states. Now Alan Jr. has his own successful business and continues raising a family of 8 children.  Her patience, tenacity, and dedication always did and continues to inspire Brian and Kara to push forward in their business ventures.Aminda is an invaluable mentor to the siblings and a direct contributor to the success of Vacation Your Way..
