    There’s nothing to eat!

    Round 2 of breakfast is eating breakfast now. Two rooms had to be at the airport by 7:30 so they had a 6 AM breakfast. I am proud to say they dug in mightily. Fortunately, I had taken more ham out of the freezer when I knew those folks were coming (City Manager's family) and had 2 crock pots...

    There’s nothing to eat!

    Back in the day I traveled with 5 and then 4 of the 2-legged animals! They fought each other in every State we were in, BUT they knew which side of our front door to be themselves. Once they touched the sidewalk (or we were in Public) they became kind, pleasant, helpful people (I would have...

    Another diet story

    I had a call this afternoon asking if I had a room available that they had motorcycle trouble but might need a room tonight. she would call back one way or the other. Fortunately I did laundry yesterday so had my favorite sheets ready to go. Immediately went up and finished what I started...

    Hotels moving away from daily cleanings...

    My 9-night people brought the trash down. when they left, the few towels were folded neatly in a stack (I have loads of towels on a shelf in that room - they were "green" so used very few).

    Hotels moving away from daily cleanings...

    I never did. I ask (always have) if they need maid service saying I consider that room as your home while you are here and I would not enter your home without permission. My guests have been respectful of my place with one exception - and he was retaliating for me charging him 1 night of a...

    What would you have done?

    Last breakfast coming up. The young man chose venison sausage for tomorrow. I think I am just going to make eggs with dill - and Schwan's has a strawberry cream cheese that I have raising for morning. Everyone has been delightful. My cousin came down with a bad case of bronchitis (tested...

    What would you have done?

    Hate to be the one to point this out, however - you can prior plan til the cows come home, ask when taking the reservation, ask on arrival and they STILL will say nothing until you serve the breakfast. I asked on taking the rez, I spelled out IN the e-mailed Confirmation Letter the response to...

    Message from Copperhead

    Copperhead is still without power and cell service. They have to leave the house - do not know how far they have to go - to get cell. They try to not go any more than absolutely necessary as gas is hard to find right now. We WERE able to get her RezKey disabled - she had no way to acknowledge...

    What would you have done?

    So far, I have done egg bake & maple venison sausage, the power was scheduled to go off at 8 AM so made a Ham, cooked apples, and cornbread egg sandwich to go, scalloped potato roll, pancakes with WV maple syrup and bacon, and today a breakfast burrito. He came down for her coffee this morning...

    What would you have done?

    Since I just have 3 rooms, it IS easier to adjust on the fly, however - the entrée IS cook's choice based in diet info given. Her Hubs mentioned that his wife was diabetic when brining in the luggage Saturday. She says she cheats on vacation. I have been using substitutes up to a point. this...

    What would you have done?

    I have and would have just fried the eggs . I would have asked about the omelet planned for the next day. I probably would have asked at that point if there were any other diet restrictions so we can ensure good breakfasts for you.

    Looking for some help

    People choose a Bed & Breakfast over a hotel BECAUSE: fewer people as guests, quieter (no slamming doors at all hours and no kids running up and down the halls). more personal service, awesome breakfasts instead of "make your own waffles"), GOOD coffee (sometimes even great coffee), and rooms...

    Anti-Vax Guests

    Personally, I have stopped trying to keep up with the CDC statements. There have been so many about faces and latest news etc. They have not had enough time to KNOW anything. The TRUTH - from BOTH sides of the issue - MIGHT be known in 20 years. I will never know what it was because I expect to...

    Sold EZPZ

    I use high school kids for my mowing. My yards are small but I pay them $20 per mow - extra if I have something else I want them to do for me - like clean out the raised bed.

    We’re ‘those people’

    Pappy had one of those in the barn - we sprayed the cows down before we sat down to milk them. Kept us from being #1 - hit in the face by a tail flicking flies away #2 - helped us from being bitten by the horse flies and other visitors the cows brought in from the pasture. Then we took the...

    Sold EZPZ

    Everyone is taking a page from the AIR model of business. No accountability to the government entities that WHAT they are remitting is what is owed, no way to track who is "hosting" to collect fees nd enforce regs. Cash is king. I am legal - I report everything. Sad knowing how many B & Bs have...

    Will you Participate?

    In 2010 we had massive publicity for the Industry with B & Bs For Vets. Web designers AND Directories were telling their clients to list because the site was getting MORE hits than ALL the Directories combined. We are trying to do that again this year, but can only achieve it with the help of...
