Hi, we are new to this forum.. well any forum really. We just opened our B&B. We only have two rooms to offer right now, but hope to have 4 eventually. I am so glad to find this forum for support, questions and ideas! Yipee!
We have been open for 10 weeks and so far have had 17 couples here. I think this is good. Is this good?

Hi High Street Victorian and welcome to INNspiring.com. Sounds like you are doing well so far. Keep up the good work and ask 'em if you got 'em. I also encourage you to share your experiences as we can all benefit from the conversations.

Welcome!
I think that makes it TWO on the forum from MO now!
Our parking area behind our Victorian is on HIGH STREET! It is also a cemetary.
Glad you could join the fellowship of the inn-mates.

Welcome! Sounds like you are doing pretty well for only being open 2 1/2 months. I hope you enjoy the conversation here

Congrats on opening! Where are you located? Is it 'peak season' there? I think 17 couples in 10 weeks sounds good for a brand new place. But, it really depends on whether or not there are 10 FULL B&B's right around the corner. What's the competition like and how are they doing? THAT'S what you need to measure yourself against.

We are in peak season. We have 3 other B&B's in our town of 8,000. But so far it seems all our guests have come from the Kansas City area, and have found us through our website; with the exception of a few out of staters. We offer upscale Victorian rooms that people seem to love.
One B&B says she busy all the time. One not so much. and the Largest one seems to be doing ok. We are three doors up from a historic hotel and restaurant that just re-opened a year ago. They are busy all the time.
Our home is one of the larger Historic victorian homes on the most toured street in our town.

If you are on a 'most toured' street you may want to do an 'open house' on a semi-regular basis in season. Getting drive-bys to stop in can be great for biz at a later date. If you get a lot of biz from it you could charge admission and donate profits to a local charity. (Then you get THEM promoting the tours as well.)

This also can be used as a PUBLICITY tool. Fo a press release about how this new business in town is already helping XYZ Charity with a house tour....
