    How many seasons do you have?

    More often then not, our no frills room (a queen bed, no hot tub, no jacuzzi, etc) is the last to go. It goes last minute at a 20% discount to give us a full house.

    BBOnline: Yay or Nay?

    If I try to find mine on there, I come up in numerous different places as a "near" place, so even if they don't click on your city, you have the potential to still get viewed. To each their own, but to me, 55 cents a day is worth it. Even a one night stay (although we don't allow them) would...

    BBOnline: Yay or Nay?

    Seems decent to me... Google Page Rank: Page Six Daily Views: 63,400 Comes out to 55 cents a day if you go with the basic $199 package. Pretty good marketing dollars for the amount of potential guests. *I thought I was editing my other post with the above, but it didn't work out that...

    Reasons why YOU don't choose to stay at a B&B

    I think the big difference betweem me and most of you is that I dont live AT the Inn....nobody does. The owners live off site, the Innkeeper off site, the workers off site....it's the guests and the guests only at night.

    Reasons why YOU don't choose to stay at a B&B

    When I am looking for a b and b, I look for what I offer because I want to experience the other side :D Seriously, the B and B I manage is how I want to experience my home away from home...because truly, isn't that what we are trying to convey to our guests? Make yourself at home? I want: 1...

    Breakfast at 8am

    I serve a breakfast in bed maybe three times a month. Our view entices them out of bed most mornings Like I said, its a better hassle for me to bring them their breakfast then it is to wait on them. With twelve seats that turn over, I can't wait on people.

    Breakfast at 8am

    Some of you are a lot nicer then me! It is "Be seated between 8:30 and 9:00. If we don't see you by 9am, we'll bring a tray to your room." No ifs ands or buts about it. I have had guests ask for earlier because they are leaving early (usually white water rafting, where they have to leave at...

    "thank You" letter

    I send thank you 'emails' After I thank them for their visit and tell them how much I enjoyed meeting them, I tell them that the best form of advertising comes from my guests and include a link to the Inn on TA. It reads something like this: It is free and easy to register on TA, only a couple...
