A food replicator from Star Trek that can be programmed by the guest for whatever food allergy or diet fad of the moment

Being able to twitch a nose and have the whole house clean
the Power Company calling to tell me they were going to cut down my blue spruce whether I like it or not!
Both have an equal chance of happening.

I love love love these, and just ordered more. Melts an innkeepers heart to find these.

Keeping the A/C turned to 77F when it's almost 100F degrees outside. (And the electric bill that is less than half of what it was when we had guests!)

The self filling soap dispenser.
Rooms that resembled a Tardis, small on the outside, giant on the inside. Preferably self-cleaning.
A special garbage can that had a retractable brim that would expand every time they throw things at it, so they get inside the bin rather than around it.
Bath mats that returned to their storage positions 30 minutes later.

Whoa, never saw those! Sounds like they must really work if you are ordering more?

A magic reservations calender, that would change the game, now I decide who stays and when....
So I would have a weekly list of potential guests (all pre-screened to be great, interesting and otherwise good B&B people
) that I can select from. Of course, I can assign these guests the room they want, their length of stay and their arrival time. Every monday I will fill my reservations agenda with a nice mix of guests and some personal time for the week to come.............

A magnificent bathroom of my own that I wouldn't have to clean.

normal bulbs for normal lighting fixtures throughout the house that don't blow up and trips the breaker (right now our parlor chandelier has the whole house held hostage and we have a cupboard full of dozens of sizes of different light bulbs)
