in the Southeast. yes, I have 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry. I have been in Human Resources for the last ten. Hubs is taking a course on small business ownership. He is very handy and can fix just about anything.
So we are ready and have the backing.
If you know of any near the shore from VA to Florida, please let me know.
Thanks!

Just do a google search, you will find plenty. Or go to bbonline and the inns for sale section. There are plenty out there. You just have to have the $$$ because no one is going to give you a loan these days, unless you have really $$$ down.

Does it have to be near the shore? There are some great properties for sale that are reasonably priced that are not near the ocean but have great access to inland lakes. There is an innkeeper on this forum who has a wonderful property for sale in VA.

Check out http://www.innshopper.com/
Here are the VA listings: http://www.innshopper.com/Virginia.aspx
I know there is one in VA BEACH for sale currently as well. here
Business loans are near impossible to come by, so a huge down payment would be required in this economy. There a re plenty of great B&B's on the market right now, as they say it is a buyer's market!

The one for sale In VA Beach belongs to friends of mine. They have put a lot of work into it and it is only a couple blocks to the beach.

if i had the financial backing, i would buy/run a b&b again in a heartbeat ... it's one of those 'toughest jobs you'll ever love' kind of things. sorry to borrow someone else's phrase, but it's true.
good luck.

Who knows when the bank will put mine on sale ... Www.travelersrestbb.com but it will probably go for a song which makes making a profit a lot easier
