    Hawley B&B closed

    Would like to travel a little, but not sure where or when. Dh isn't too keen on it. Will fill my time well as I have cut back in other areas over the years so I could do a good job at the B&B and my job. Over time there will be no more B&B's here. One hand has closed all but 2. I don't know what...

    Hawley B&B closed

    Just wanted everyone to know that I have closed the B&B. The city decided I had to put in sprinklers and electrical fire system. With 1 room and 2 suites, it would never pay for itself, even if I opened the last suite. So decided to close and use the large house as our personal residence, at...

    B&B for veterans

    I only had 1 room available because the other 2 are full. If they had not been full, I would have offered all 3 for the night. After it hit the paper here in Lincoln, I got 1 or 2 calls every day.

    Veterans Project Press Template

    I put it on my blog. Haven't sent it out to local papers yet. Might send to Omaha paper as there is a military base there. Will have to ask Carol if she is participating.

    Cable TV a must have?

    In the 5+ years I have been in business, I have only had 2 that asked about a phone because they didn't have a cell phone. But in the second group of sisters, some of them did have a cell phone, just not all 6 of them didn't. I still don't have a phone in the B&B and won't ever do it. I might...

    Something you used to do and now don't?

    I used to have cut flowers in each room from the yard, but no one commented, so now I don't. If I feel they will be appreciated, I will cut flowers for the dining room. I used to have chocolates in the rooms. Again no thanks or comments, so now have a bowl of hard mints individual wrapped in the...

    What do you do when the credit card is refused?

    Have had several problems over the years and only take cc to make a reservation and charge for the entire stay. If they don't want to do that, then no reservation. I will take a check, they can mail to me and I will hold the room 1 week for the check if it is far enough in advance of the stay...

    Goop is great stuff

    Great tip. Also another tip, remember way back when we talked about spots on towels where some color would be missing? Remnjava and hubby came to stay a night this winter and we were sitting at the table talking about this. My long term guest at the time heard us talking about it. She is working...

    Hello from the Higgins House

    I see on your web site you make Ebleskiver. I have watched youtube on making it and purchased the pan, but haven't had a chance to work on it to see if I can make them. How do you serve the lemon curd with the ebelskiver? That would be really interesting.

    Hello from the Higgins House

    Welcome from NE. I have 1 room and 2 suites. Am looking forward to retirement from my full time job next year and just have the B&B. Most of the innkeepers here are younger, I think I was the oldest until now (still close) you told us how old you are. Do you find it hard to keep up sometimes?

    Our Accelerated Schedule

    K, So sorry to hear of your husband was laid off. Hope you can make it in the B&B even though it was earlier than you planned. Like the other K said, maybe he can do some other part time work out of the home. Or help with the B&B to allow you to start another business like catering or lunch...

    Platform beds ?

    The next suite I open will be an asian influence. The bed will be a platform bed. My DH has told me he will make it for me. The large bedroom is large enough to hold a king bed, so am looking forward to doing it. But have to redo bathroom before I can open that. Don't think it will be this...
