    What's Your Forecast for End of Year?

    We had a great Sept and November but we've decided to do full house rentals only for now. We have 2 bookings through the holidays, then a miracle private rental mid January through mid May.

    Our Seasons Of Discontent... or Why I Wanted To Quit Today

    We allow children of all ages and have never (in 4 years) had a major issue. All our beds have waterproof mattress covers under our nice thick mattress pads. Most parents are smart enough to handle their kids. Other couples always seem delighted when there's a baby at breakfast!

    Celebrity Guests

    We've had quite a few. Olivia Wilde stayed here a month, Donald Sutherland, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant used the house for two weeks as their "green room" while shooting a movie on our corner, Patricia Clarkson, Vampire Weekend, writer Jonathan Safran Foer. All were gracious and polite, and...

    Where can I buy good top sheets to do triple sheeting?

    Just use a good quality top sheet. Wamsutta makes a 500 thread count cotton sheet that's nice and hefty. BTW, we also just put our duvet covers on top of the duvet, like a top sheet.

    I was recently told by a B&B broker that the price should generally be 5x annual revenue.

    Dividing Personal and Professional With Guests

    I find that I truly enjoy talking with our guests and I don't mind if they get personal. Many people are curious about how we end up as innkeepers. I think we have had a lot of repeat visitors because people feel as though we are a kind of friend. And several customers have become real...

    We were featured in vogue.com!

    Thank you all so much for your warm good wishes. The editor and photog were lovely, and not demanding at all. We were recommended by one of the stores in the article; a place I frequent and ALWAYS buy a little something to be a good neighbor. I find this has paid off tremendously in referrals...

    Favorite or most popular recipe and how you plate or present it

    I serve a three course breakfast. I started out doing a buffet but I didn't really like. I enjoy people sitting around a beautifully set table, getting to know each other and feeling pampered. I love to serve shakshuka as a main course. Try the NYTimes Cooking recipe. So easy, so different...

    Thanks very much! I don't scare off that easily. If I did, I wouldn't be in this business!

    Resorts and Lodges

    Kindness is always welcome though; I felt like I was getting yelled at for being stupid. It's not the first time I have felt this way on this site, so I thought it might be helpful to mention it. Seems like it was an unwelcome observation.

    Resorts and Lodges

    Well now, that brought some strong opinions! Let's be kind to each other, ok? Otherwise, we might start feeling uncomfortable asking each other for advice.

    Advice on switching to a new online reservation system

    If you are somewhat tech savvy, take a look at beds24. It is rather cumbersome to set up, but I think it works well and is quite inexpensive (cost based on usage). It has an easy to implement channel manager as well.
