    Charlottesville Virginia is 90% Democrat. We have a city council that is 100% Democrat. Our County Board of Supervisors is 100% Democrat. I am the local chair of the Democratic Party. The difference is we are a highly academic community due to the University of Virginia being located here...

    Sorry, due to our insurance companies covid policies which have not been lifted, we can't have anyone on the property that is not a registered guest. I was friends with the former owners of Arcady, it is a wonderful bnb and vineyard.

    Only related in an ancillary way.... My best friend Raj is a strict vegan for religious reasons. He visits our Inn with his family regularly and will come down to the kitchen early if I am cooking bacon and he always says "I know I would go to hell if I ate pork but the smell of bacon tempts...

    Hello! New Innkeepeers here!

    Grew up in a family that owned Boulder Lodge Resort in Hayward WI so I know a place in the UP means you are young, energetic and hearty enough to shovel the roof all winter so you'll do fine!

    That's why we have a lawyer. Here is the actual verbiage from the ADA act. The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) provides certain protections for those with disabilities to provide an equal opportunity to access, like for people without disabilities. For business owners, it is important...

    Packaged soaps or liquids?

    Our local health department made us remove dispensers as a condition of fully reopening last June. We probably won't ever put them back as I think they are perceived as dirty

    How to antagonize Guests in 5 minutes flat

    What state are you in? We have rental property in Virginia and North Carolina and the contract our Realtor and attorney use specifically does not allow any animals of any type for short or long term rentals. I don't know if I would be able to be a landlord in your state. Sounds like a recipe...
