We are getting bookings into 2019 already!  Mostly people celebrating a wedding, etc.   We were full this past weekend.  We have a room filled tonight.  We just got two more new bookings tonight (one for tomorrow night and the other for 2 nights in August) 

So fun to see all the hard work starting to pay off!    Just had to share!!!!

I usually meet with the groom a day or two before the wedding. He signs in, I give him the code to the front door keypad, show him where the room is and ask when they want breakfast. It really works well. I don’t wait up, they don’t worry about having a curfew. 

Front door keypads are the way to go.

We've had both rooms booked every weekend.  Not Friday and Saturday always but at least 1 night every weekend we have both rooms booked.  We're happy with that and not needing to be busier.

Tonight I had to stay up until 11:30pm to welcome newlyweds.  We've been really popular with newlyweds!  Last weekend we had a bridal party in both rooms.

In the last 2 weeks I've had three 2 night bookings for May?

Yes, we do tend to get a few, usually for special occasions. Couple checked out this morning, here for his 50th... booked last Oct. Weddings is another one.

Also long stays, couple here last week for 7 days, they booked last July.

Thanks!  I had to laugh because the AirBNB app makes a special sound when you get a booking.  The wife and I were in the kitchen when we heard THAT sound. I actually went, "Oh no!" as I thought we got another booking and we were both feeling a little stressed.  Turned out it was just a message.  LOL

Yes, it's a great feeling in the beginning, and after several years, I still feel great every single time a new one comes in.

I will soon have my 22nd anniversary - opened July 3, 1996 - and I still whoop! when a reservation comes in. Shinnston is a small city just 7 miles west of the Interstate, but we may as well be in Timbuktu as far as being a tourism destination (except for what I do re marketing of course).
