    "I count my blessings"

    I took a reservation this evening from a woman who had called a couple of times talking about booking a weekend January 20-21 with a girlfriend, but she wasn't sure which room. Wasn't sure the girlfriend would actually be coming. Didn't want to wait too long to get a good room. Etc. Etc...

    emailing offline?

    I was thinking there is a way to email an innmate offline, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Maybe the coffee hasn't kicked in yet---but anyone have advice for me?

    It's finally happened

    I've been reading this site for a couple of years, and contributing a bit for what, 18 months? Secretly I sometimes wonder where some of you FIND the extra-special people who you seem to attract. Okay, so you've finally sent some toward me. I got an online reservation made late last evening...

    Two night minimums

    Help! I decided to be very firm about two-night minimums for weekends for the rest of the summer and through the Fall. It only makes sense to me NOT to take the onesies if I can sell the twosies. I LOVE when we feel like we sort of have a night off on Saturday because we don't have any...

    Anyone else get this one?

    I can't figure out why they need 7 rooms for 5 folks, can you? I have a group of 5 coming to stay for 2weeks. Kindly let me know if I can 7 separate single rooms in your care. The guests will check inn 5th August and check out 19th August. Waiting to hear back from you as soon as possible with...

    I just LOVE when this happens.....

    I'm continually amazed by the coincidences that happen around here. They certainly make it interesting to have a B&B. This weekend we have lots of folks here in our inn in our smallish midwest city from NYC for not one but two different weddings. This morning at breakfast, two men recognize...

    Oat Bran

    A repeat offender presented me with a huge bag of oat bran this morning. I have never used the stuff. Any ideas of something simple and delicious I can do with it while he's here?

    Tell it like it is!

    I'm doing some research on B&B's in Switzerland, and I've come across this page on one of the B&B sites. I love it! Talk about making sure, in advance, that people know what to expect. This is all under the heading: Important Information to our Visitors from Overseas: We put a lot of photos...

    I swear I don't make these up...

    After a busy weekend full of Valentiners, we only had two young couples in our two best rooms on Valentines Day itself. One of the young men had come a couple of weeks ago to pay cash because he didn't want his significant other seeing money coming out of the account. Nice guy. He showed up...

    "Do you take cash...."

    "and will you take extra to kick the people out of (the room I want for Valentines) by telling them something's broken?" Really?? Are you kidding??

    I'm SO excited!

    I just got an email telling me that I'm the perfect inn for 4 newly-ordained priests from Greece, staying for a whole week in April!! These guys really get around, don't they?

    Need advice from all you bakers out there....

    Love to cook....don't particularly love to bake. Largely because if I want it for breakfast I don't want to have to get up and start mixing batters early in the morning. So here are some questions: If you're making banana bread or that luscious cranberry cake that was posted the other day (or...

    Can I get an Amen??

    Four check-outs yesterday and a decent weekend ahead, but NOBODY in the house last night. When DH returned a bit early from his "other" job, we took a long soak in one of our large tubs, followed by a nap. Heaven. Went out do dinner like normal people and had (moatly) regular conversaton about...

    She slept in her car!

    We've all got stories about innkeeping that we'll be telling when we're in our rockers in the nursing home. Here's a new one of ours: Young gal checks in last evening. She's beginning a business trip that doesn't even require her to be in our town but she's going to meet an old friend at a...

    Google rankings vary by computer??

    Perhaps some of you web-savvy folks can explain this. I was just checking to see where I come up on google listings for my city, so I googled 'my city' followed by search terms like hotels, accommodations, lodging, bed breakfast. It seemed like I had slipped a bit on the results that weren't...

    Remembering guests.....or forgetting....

    I wonder if this rings a bell with anyone else.... Got a reservation yesterday for a couple with odd names. My first thought "Oh, I remember that name. They were here once. Maybe 6 months ago..." I looked them up on my res system and was APPALLED to realize they were here for one night just...

    Sticky fingers

    The "Inn the News" about stealing towels makes me want to ask.....what's your experience with theft? When we bought the house (over 3 years ago), we asked the PO's about their experiences with theft. They said they never had anything taken.....and to be truthful, we didn't really believe them...
