Hi all and thank you for allowing me into your group.
I'm looking for some help I own 6 cottages and a main home in TwinMountain, NH and I need to find a Innkeeper to run our property for at least 3 months but would prefer longer. My mom lives with us and has dementia and sun downers and can no longer be onsite. We have thought about selling but we truly love the property and can't imagine finding someone that would love it like we have.
Anyways we are hoping maybe you can direct us on where to find a lovely couple to run it like we do.
Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions
