Lennon, the proprietor of the Kennebunkport Inn in Maine, is more of a professional hospitality manager than a frazzled bed-and-breakfast owner. ...

She states clearly that she owns a hotel. I resent being called a 'frazzled B&B owner,' tho. Again, someone has taken a pot shot at a substantial portion of lodging owners in this state.

No byline, I can't even complain to a person.

I LOVED OUR GUESTS TODAY! That is the difference, we make a difference, we are not just a hotel room.

Well I answered it. I said I was sorry she cringes at being called a title I am proud of - Innkeeper. Also said I have never felt frazzled as an innkeeper. (My frazzle comes from dealing with DH)

Well, hell's bells she sure ought to cringe at the thought of being called an innkeeper since she's not one. She employs quite a few, it seems, and I'm wondering if she thinks all of her employees are frazzled.
As for assuming the rest of us are all frazzled because of a TV show from the 80s, please. How rude.
What is wrong with people that they think they have to insult their colleagues to show that they're worthy?
Really sad article all around, IMHO. Why would anyone want to own an inn if they have contempt for innkeepers?

that is a hotel to call it anything else is rubbish. I thought that all the comments were well written especially the first. That person is a credit to us all.

All the comment so far are spot on. I wonder how many more offended, non frazzled Innkeepers will post.
