I thought about that. We are hoping to be ready the weekend before and have some friends stay to give us a dry run.another trial by fire. i had a whole house booking very early in the game ... but not the first guests. just remember that whole house bookings are different than the norm. they might stress you to the max. read up on the threads about whole house bookings so you can be prepared.
exciting to start!! yes, you can easily put off opening your doors if you're not forced into a date. good luck..
