    Cleaning out the fridge

    They are sweating the small stuff. Don’t buy in. You did nothing wrong. My current attitude....oh well..... So many difficulties in the world and our lives that a misunderstanding over someone’s leftovers is easily dismissed.

    Noticing a trend

    I’m seeing the very earlies are the one nighters. Stretching their short stay to as long as they can.

    New one and well done

    Update - just noticed the car is still here! Had he asked, we would have said he could leave the car, but he didn’t ask.

    New one and well done

    Checked in super early. One guy. I asked, are you one or two adults? Two, my wife is in the car. I wanted to make sure we could check in early. Can we take breakfast to the room? I said yes because people are sensitive to covid in different degrees. He turned in his key at 11 and...

    Crazy guests

    Amazingly rude and self centered. How do they think no one can hear them?

    Crazy guests

    Covid makes every interaction scary. We can’t see our grandkids cuz we have strangers in the house. We can’t go out to dinner. We can’t enjoy our guests. Every one of them is suspect! As is the bagger at the market and they guy who takes your money at the gas station. We’re under...

    Noticing a trend

    We’ve never charged for early check ins, but, like you said, maybe now is the time. We’ve always treated early check ins as a way for us to enjoy cocktail hour without worry and waiting. But it’s feeling different this year. (I guess everything is.).

    Noticing a trend

    We are noticing that the one nighters always seem to want to check in early. In this covid time, people are venturing out but somewhat close to home. They just want a change of scenery. So is it ok if they get here at 11? They want to enjoy their one day as long as they possibly can.

    I am clueless - guest mentions they are on KETO diet

    That would be a hard, NO from me.

    I am clueless - guest mentions they are on KETO diet

    Hahahahahahahaha. I looked it up. Now I’m even more confused! FODMAP = Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols I’d have to respond, “I don’t know what that means, you will have to give me a list.”

    What the ever loving &@!* is FODMAPS?

    Didn’t I see you with someone else yesterday?

    I once won a vacation cabin for a week in a fundraiser raffle. I was single at the time. I invited a few friends to come visit. All male. None romantic. AT ALL. Three different friends came for an overnight visit, separate bedrooms, just friends, each one at a time. Every morning...

    legal cannabis

    Seems to me the issues are the same or similar. Second hand smoke, smelly rooms, risk of fire from careless disposal, offending the snowflake types. No smoking means no smoking. Tobacco or pot or cloves....take it to the designated smoking area or off the property.

    Hi Inn Owners!

    Search Seven South Street, Rockport, MA. They are for sale. 9 rooms, but if I owned it, I would take a couple for myself and open with six rooms. Very good reputation. Known for their four course breakfast. Also search Linden Tree Rockport, MA. Also for sale. They are targeting...

    To carpet or not to carpet . . .

    We carpeted all our guest rooms except the one on the first floor. Three had painted wood floors and two had beautiful, restored, antique hardwood. But they are noisy. And cold. We also carpeted the stairs. The carpet guy tried to talk us out of it because they were beautiful. But...

    What does your check in look like now?

    A question: If you are on hand to wipe down serving utensils after each guest, why not simply be the server? In other words, only one person touches the serving utensils. You.

    Favorite fall breakfasts?

    The applesauce and gingerbread together was a big hit. I’ll have to look for baked pears. Sounds awesome.

    Favorite fall breakfasts?

    Do you switch the menu for fall? I love fall flavors. Tomorrow we are serving homemade applesauce and a slice of gingerbread as our starter followed by zucchini quiche (but we call it baked veggie omelette). 🤣 I’m planning to make apple cider doughnuts for next weekend. I bought...

    What does your check in look like now?

    Conversing, not arguing. We present each guest with our state’s travel advisory. But we do not ask for proof that they have complied. I see Silverspoon is asking for proof of compliance. I know at least one innkeeper in my town asks for proof of compliance. Is anyone else? Have...

    What does your check in look like now?

    It’s not nearly as warm and friendly, but most people are happy to see we are being serious and careful.
