Bed and Breakfast Inns have come a long way in that they are not only offering great amenities and beautiful decor but in the way guests are treated. An Innkeeper treats their guest with great privacy and you will not have to interact with other guests if you do not want to. Respecting your guests wishes is of up most importance. Innkeepers often leave a key for guests to enter if they have had an evening out.
Breakfasts can be served at a long dining room table or a small one in which other guests are being served. Should you not want to interact just let your innkeeper know and other arrangements can be made. Should you have special dietary needs be sure to tell your Innkeeper when making your reservation so he or she can accomodate you.
An Innkeeper who has more than 10 rooms cannot be at the front desk 24/7 as there is a lot to do such as shopping for tomorrows breakfast, checking the rooms after the maid has been there to clean and keeping up with day to day operations. As a guest, try to arrive on time or at least call and make sure your Innkeeper knows how late you will be.
