Establishing Set-up

Hi there! I am in the process of converting my circa 1840s home to a B&B. I have two guest rooms to rent and can lodge up to five guests. I have a queen bed in the smaller guest room and am wondering what would be best for the larger (master) guest room. Currently there is a king bed there, but I am considering replacing it with two twins (which would also allow room for a rollaway). I live in a small village with plenty of attractions for nature lovers and antique shopping so I am planning on targeting mostly couples and 'gals weekenders". Do any of you have any advice about king beds vs two twins?

Thank you, everyone. Your input is most helpful. I'm glad to be a part of your community. I was hesitant to go with the two twins and will see if I can somehow manage to keep a queen and another bed in the same room. Makes much more sense. Glad I asked before I bought mattresses and box springs.

Seems to be a diabolical problem there. 

As for me, there is no place for a twin bed in a B&B. Give it two queens (for couples or girlfriend getaways) or a king. That is what I would do, if there is no room for two, then make it a king. Smiling Welcome to the forum!

another way to go (you say no room for king + twin) is what we have in one room.  A queen size bed and a day bed.  very cozy for a couple and easy for friends traveling together or for the kids with parents down the hall.

We have two rooms that are the most popular - the one with the king bed and the one with two separate beds.  So I guess I'm not much help. 

If the two twins can be joined to be a king, you get more versatility out of that.

 

And welcome!
