Welcome! I've had my Inn (8 bedroom B&B) for the last 5 years and it's been the best thing ever.
I managed restaurants for over 20 years before we purchased the Inn, wanting to wait until our children were adults. I have upgraded the 1925 house and loved every moment!
My advise would be to contact a B&B owner and ask to work with them and walk in their shoes for a week. We went to Colorado and did an Aspiring Inn Keeper class. Also go to a B&B convention full of information and so many fellow owners to talk with.
Best advise I ever got is to hire great housekeepers, you can't do it all.
Good luck with your research!

Hello there! I'm an aspiring innkeeper looking at eventually owning a B&B in Maine. I'm just starting my research phase right now, reading books, putting together a business plan, etc. Excited to be part of the INNspiring community :)

My Wife and I own a 13 room Inn in upstate NY - oakvalleyinngeneseo.com (Western Finger Lakes region). Running a B&B/Inn is a Lifestyle not a Job! Having a Partner you get along with is crucial to us as you're together all the time taking care of a multitude of responsibilities. We are actually looking for some help with our Inn with a purchase option for the right person or couple. No experience necessary - just a willingness to learn and an upbeat personality. Feel free to call or message us back. 585-243-5570. All the best, J

Good morning! Not sure I’m in the right place. I am a super host Innkeeper.I am looking for an Innkeeping position. I would even like to lease a business. I see on here that leasing to someone is a bad idea. Well if there not experienced and don’t have 5 star ratings , it may be someone looking for a place to live . Not the case for me . I love the business !
Anyway thanks much.

Thanks! I will check it out!
Bella are you doing this on your own, My husband and I have running our 6 cottages for the last 7 years in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and it is a love for sure, but also it's work 30-40 hours a week each. But we love it however we are moving on since my mom that lives with us has dementia and sun downers and doesn't want to be here anymore.
