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!
