    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...

    Dissatisfied guests

    Cancellation, What would you do?

    We live in a small non-tourist town and most of my guests stay for a single night. I don't typically have a 2 night minimum. We do have an event coming up the second weekend in June that I put a 2 night minimum because of the high demand. I've had a waiting list for months, and now the...

    "Fun" Surprises

    We just bought this Inn less than a month ago. Most of the rooms are full with out of state contractors working at a local nuclear plant. We have one open room so DH and I decided to sleep there last Friday night and get to know the quirks of the room. The mattress is awful! It was so firm...
