Ideas for packages

Ahem, 'experiences'. Not packages, I'm organizing experiences. So, some of the experiences I've got on the website are pretty popular. Some things we tell guests to try I cannot partner with the group because they don't know how to sell tickets in advance.

New ideas include: pottery classes, painting classes, photography classes, handcrafts like spinning and weaving. All of these can be arranged for groups or as private lessons for 2-4 guests.

We don't do well with groups booking for an inn house event, so I'm going to pitch these as private lessons for 2. I've talked with the professionals and as long as it fits in their schedule they said go ahead. I'd need about 2 weeks' advance notice.

Anything strike you something you might want to try if you actually got to work with professionals? Maybe not something you would come here specifically to do, but as an interesting 'side' trip?

  Pottery.  I already do photography and know how to weave.  Painting and Pottery could be too messy.  Just my thoughts.

They won't be doing any of it here. They'll go to the studios. Pick up their finished works later or pay to have them shipped home.

   That's a good plan!

Baskets? They make a basket to take home and say, Look what I did!

Good one, but I don't know anyone who does that. Maybe I should think about it along the lines of summer camp!

Kayaking, hand crafts, hiking, sailing. Hmmmm. Have to ponder this one as a lot of our guests came here for summer camp eons ago.
