Hi again all,

We bought our property in West Seattle. It was run as a B and B for 25 years. We are doing MAJOR remodeling/rehabbing before we try to launch. It was the Wildwood Bed & Breakfast. And it will be again! We thought about rebranding but so many people we talk to about it here have positive associations and memories.So why push the river? It occurs to me that the prior owner (now deceased) might have been on here or been known to some of you. If so I'd love to hear about her.  

Major wallpaper peeling going on now! New siding, roof, windows, boiler/furnace, electrical system. 

If anyone is interested we're at facebook.com/wildwoodbnb

Looking forward to lots of advice and opinions from those in the know!

Do you by any chance still have the 1920s windows?

Welcome Tom, and good luck with your venture. To me, the beginning was exciting, then the more difficult periods as we learn through our struggles, now after many years, hopefully more highs than lows, wish I could have done this at a younger age as to me it is a great life.

To me a name is just a name, we rebrand or reinvent ourselves by how we operate our business, slower perhaps, but lasts longer. I'm not the same as I was 25 years back, we and the world around us continue to change, hopefully in a positive direction.

Welcome to the club. After six+ years of doing this, can't imagine doing anything else. Envy you the excitement you must be feeling -- but not the hard work ahead! Smiling
