My husband and I are on our 8th year of being "permanent" Innkeepers. We started in 2006 with our own B & B ran it for 4 years then the economy tanked and you can fill in the blanks. Unemployment was rampant and so we decided to inquire about Innkeeping jobs, that said our first innkeeping job was in Arkansas for a year and a half, we've been at this post now going on our third year. We are going back home in May I am returning to school, I have been taking classes at the community college going on my second semester will be transferring to the university back home.

This is my question, since I will have summers off and going to school full time throughout fall and winter-do any of you think that I could make enough $$ to finish my degree? I would work from middle of May through middle of August.

Thanks in advance...

I will keep you apprised of anything I hear that is available during those months.  Are you willing to travel outside of AR?

Hello,

We are currently in NJ-was in Arkansas (always have that damn state wrong when I abbreviate, sorry). We are moving back to WV by May-early June. My school ends here in mid May. Hoping that we can stay busy though the summer, perhaps longer-husband could do it while I was in school.

Yes, we are willing to travel to Washington DC, Virginia, West Virginia and perhaps Ohio-depending on where it is...let me know. I would like to do this every summer while I am at the University-going to Concord, this would eliminate me finding employment when school ends, and of course there are the holidays between classes as well. Just thought it would keep the $$ rolling in. But if anyone has a summer gig for us let us know.

Thank you for spreading the word.

If you contact BBAV, the Bed and Breakfast Association of Virginia, you can maybe list on their website or let them know you are an innsitter. I know in my area we use them a lot. I have mine locked up for now, but others are still looking. They are having their yearly convention right now, so if you want to email me privately your contact information, or mail me business cards, I can put them out at the convention which is February 23.
