    Inn the news Oct 26, 2014

    It is so silly - was on our news since it is the next County up. His B&B is a strange design that he built - kind of a hippy-ish setup. Not my style to be sure. And that County is nowhere as strict as ours is.

    Inn the news Oct 26, 2014

    With all the hoops we had to jump through to get our license, how is this guy RENTING ROOMS without a permit, and being ALLOWED to operate until the end of the month until being closed?????? Not only operating without a permit, he built in an area that was not ZONED for a B&B and didn't bother...

    Maybe she left a sinking ship.

    Innkeeper Magazine

    I took a quick look and the magazine reminds me of PAII conferences. Great for the aspiring, but nothing new to me. Especially with articles promoting printed advertising, and direct mail. It would be good for aspiring innkeepers collecting information though.

    Owner responses to reviews

    The only thing I heard that is awful is that if you decide to quit their program they leave your property up saying that there is no availability. This leads people to think you are booked. It has taken some people ages to get them to remove the property after they leave.

    LivingSocial any one here doing this ?

    I got one too Mary. They are like Groupon and there is no way I'm going to discount for them. I don't discount for me! Don't need them to book.

    Observations from the weekend

    You're lucky. My last group of 6 professional older ladies were nice, but left one bathroom door off the hinges (why hang your heavy suitcase there and not in the closet??) broken glasses, and two heated towel racks pulled off the wall. Not a word about it either except for a complaint that the...

    Non B&B Guests

    When we get guests who make a mess of good towels I replace them with old towels that I don't think are good enough for guests but still okay. This way I get the stains out of good towels, and don't care what they do to the old ones for the rest of the stay.

    Requesting Proof of Funds

    Good for you! Was it the one that came with their family or the one that would not submit financials??

    Differences according to location

    I would be interested in checking airbnb to see how many bookings are in your area. Then I'd love to hear what the authorities have to say as to why you have to jump through so many hoops and they do not. And why you should not just junk the idea of opening a legal business and just go with...

    Colbert Report Ai rBB

    That's nice, but here in the USA and I know in England, should the host be driving a guest and have an accident, they will not be covered EVEN IF THEY DON'T CHARGE FOR THE RIDE. This is because the guest is paying to stay at the property. I don't know about the continent.

    Hi gang, I never went anywhere just been busy! We are back up now so if anyone else is with them I want to point out the great customer service and communication with Availability compared to what I hear is offered from the "big guys"!!

    Anyone else on Availability Online for reservations?

    For anyone on Availability: They just emailed me and called me. They are having problems with their server which is not affecting all of their clients - for instance they can access up where they are in Vermont. They are working on it but it's not something they can control. You can bet they are...

    Anyone else on Availability Online for reservations?

    is anyone else using Availability Online for reservations? I'm having trouble and I'm trying to see if it's me or them. They are looking and will be getting back to me. This is the first time in 4 years I've had trouble. If anyone else uses them can you check and see if you are working? Thanks!

    How to get the best start - What to do to help a new Inn book well?

    Hi there, We support ourselves (2 of us) on a four room B&B. We also do wine tasting tours which is $250 per couple so the income is more like a 6-8 room B&B except the wine tours have no overhead other than our time, gas and a cheese plate and bottled water. We support ourselves because we did...
