    I need to check a date?

    I get this all the time too. I don't mind so much as I can get a feel for the guests personality over the phone and sometimes they want to get a feel for mine as well. It drives my husband batty though.

    "That's the same price as a hotel!"

    I've never had anyone use this tactic on me. I would have to try hard not to laugh in their faces if they did. Why wouldn't a B&B be more expensive than a hotel? I did have one guest try and tell me after they stayed that my prices were a bit high. I told her that I was comparable to the...

    Need Breakfast Ideas

    Thankfully no dietary restrictions to work around!! This booking is going to give us our best month ever, which makes me happy happy happy. :)

    Need Breakfast Ideas

    Luckily they're not all bringing spouses so I will only have 7 guests. Although now that I think about it I should double check with my husband. He took the reservation for my 2 bedroom and I don't know if he thought to ask how many would be coming. If they bring spouses I'd have 9 guests.

    Need Breakfast Ideas

    Our town scored the amateur disc golf world championships. So I have a house full of disc golfers for the next week. I've never had the whole house full for a whole week with the same people. So I need large breakfast ideas. I have a couple but not a whole weeks worth. We're set up a little...

    Pic Monkey

    My Sister In Law is helping me market my Inn online. She runs several fan sites for TV shows and is experienced with FB, twitter, etc. She introduced me to an online photo editing site called Pic Monkey. It's free and super easy to use (you don't even have to register). I had some...

    Interesting. I might have to try and see how it goes over.

    Blog Idea: 8 things you should never do in a hotel

    I would be interested in writing a counter article if had a platform. Maybe once my blog is up. It is definitely a different experience at a b&b. I am not a germ-a-phobe what so ever. I clean my rooms well but when I'm at a hotel or any public place I don't worry about germs. (I work in a...

    Do You Have a Signature Dish?

    Cheesecake is my absolute favorite food. When I have it in the house I totally have it with coffee for breakfast. I don't think it's what guests expect though. lol I have thought about creating a picnic package just so I can highlight my cheesecake.

    Do You Have a Signature Dish?

    I don't have a signature dish. The previous owners had some kind of coffee cake as their signature dish, I found the recipe and wasn't impressed. I do kind of wish I had something but I haven't quite figured it out yet. Now if I could figure out how to make my cheesecake my signature dish...

    Noise, Noise, Everywhere

    I have a tripadvisor review that "is a 4 but would have been a 5" except the guests above her were noisy. Sigh. It's an old house, it's not sound proof and I certainly can't control other guests (much as I would like to sometimes).

    Sorry, the person in charge doesn't take phone calls...

    I love when my husband takes those calls. He insists that this line is for reservations only, "Would you like to make a reservation"? He said he had one poor sales guy almost frustrated to tears. lol

    How was February?

    I so wish I could. We've got a similar event here in April and I look forward to it all year long.

    Talk some sense into me

    This is honestly what I wouldn't want to do. We bought our current inn as is, it was already a b&b, fully furnished and done. It's nice but it's not how I would have done it. I've changed things here and there and made it a little more "me" but it's an inn someone else built. The house next...

    Talk some sense into me

    We are in the very beginning of fact finding here so I don't know the answers to a lot of your questions, yet. My husband and I, as he puts it, have a house porn problem. lol We have both dreamed of fixing up old houses, we're young and we do have the stamina. It's hard to say how long it's...

    Talk some sense into me

    I already own one bed and breakfast. I enjoy owning a bed and breakfast. I looove old houses. I have been in love with a particular house since I was a child. Anyone ever see the Casper movie with Christina Ricci? The old mansion they move into is what this house looks like. Growing up it...
