Bed and Breakfast Etiquette

Choosing a B&B as a repeated or first time guest is a great experience.
Visiting for a getaway by yourself or romantic partner is one we hope will be comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable. Your host wants you to return and to tell your family and friends what a wonderful visit you had and how you can hardly wait to return. Most innkeeper will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable experience filled with precious memories.
Tell host/ reservationist  if you have any allergy or diet restrictions when you make your reservation to less complicate your meals. Check their web site for policies. This is the same respect you would want to inform someone visiting you. If they only make reservations from 9 am to 7 pm respect this rule. If you are going to be late for check in please notify them. Arrive for breakfast, lunch or dinner on time not minutes before they close the kitchen. Be reasonably quiet with the tv. Do not take robes or towels home with you. This would be wrong in any situation even a large hotel. If you have fallen in love with certain items ask if they are for sale. They may only have a limited supply so do not be upset if they cannot provide this for you but you may just get lucky and they will sell it to you at a reasonable price or at least tell you where you may purchase what you want. You may have the opportunity to meet other guest who like exchanging information but be careful not to intrude on their getaway it may not be appreciated but on the other hand they may enjoy your company. Be respectful to your host. This is their home and they want to please you. Your host is a great source of local information, places to visit and dine. Many Bed and Breakfast Inns offer an afternoon tea or an after evening drinks. Make sure you do not  drink too much and make sure if you smoke you abide by their rules. Some allow outside in smoking areas and some do not allow smoking on their property at all. Check for their policy. Respect their rules. We cannot say this enough.
Choosing a Bed and Breakfast Inn can be a wonderful experience. Clean, cozy and comfortable and the wonderful hospitality of your host, breakfast and evening get together is a relaxing.
There are Bed and Breakfast Inns for almost every experience. Ask about coupons they may offer for area attractions. Many B&B Inns will rent the whole inn for Weddings or Events. Since many B&B Inns are owned by professional chefs your in for the best possible breakfast or dinner.
Your pet. Ask what their policy.
Children. Again ask their policy.
Business Stays…Ask about short or long term stays. Those midweek days are usually less expensive and provide not only the best prices but an enjoyable experience.
Leaving a tip. A tip is always greatly appreciated.
Don’t forget is a great source of recommending Bed and Breakfast Inn.
We wish you a wonderful visit to a Bed and Breakfast Inn that you will want to return to again and again.

Aspiring Innkeepers Class

Summer is ending and maybe your are looking for a change in your career.
Are you in the market to purchase a B&B/Inn as a new career? The main focus of this blog is to inform you, it is to your advantage to attend an Innkeeping Seminar. We know that you will want to make changes to the property to design your own unique decor and that will be a substantial cost.  Maybe you will have to modernize the B&B/Inn to an updated and modernize the style but also still keeping with the tradition of the overall look. The Aspiring Innkeeping classes should be not only for new innkeepers but also for those who have been in business for several years to be informed as to what is new in the B&B/Inn business. Aspiring Innkeeping classes are offered those who have an eye for details and want to improve their skills the ability to make the right changes or improve what they are doing now. Since every Bed and Breakfast Inn is different and the personality of each innkeeper is also different social networking is a must.  Just working out the details where to purchase, purchasing price, any loans you will need, we always suggest discussing with Rick Newman any financial needs or renovation financial needs you may have, how you are going to change the B&B/Inn and put your own touch on the property, is the property turn key or do you need to close and reopen with the new changes, marketing (should you have the web site redone and most of the time our team recommends this to put your own signature on the business). The cost of a new web site is small compared to the business return. Ask your designer for advise on what to advertise on your new web site amenities the previous owners may not be doing now. This is one of the many reasons you purchased the business was to take the business to a higher level. These are just a few of the ideas you will be discussing during your Aspiring Innkeepers class. Know that being an innkeeper is not to be taken lightly there is a lot of decisions to be made.  It is truly an undertaking that one should be in business with someone they trust. Going it alone can be overwhelming.
