Seminar FAQ’s

Q: Why should I (we) take a seminar?

A: People who take our seminar for aspiring innkeepers are more informed about the acquisition process, the Innkeeping lifestyle, the capital requirements for financing, current marketing trends, and best practices for being a successful innkeeper. The success rate for seminar graduates is far higher than for those who go out on their own.

Q: Why should I take The B&B Team’s seminar?

A: As a team, our combined experience as successful innkeepers, consultants and advisors, and brokers amounting to over 100 years allows you to learn from the most diversified and accomplished instructors in our industry. And, we have a lot of fun! You will work hard and play hard with us!

Q: What happens after I take your seminar?

A: We will work with you to design a custom strategy for searching for your inn and guiding you through the complex process of assessing, negotiating and acquiring the inn of your dreams. We will answer all your questions and work with you side by side. You shouldn’t be alone in this process, and with us, you won’t be.

Q: What is the cost and what is included?

A: The cost for our weekend seminars is $375.00 for a single person or $495.00 for a couple for our weekend seminars. This includes all instruction materials and follow up time with The B&B Team, two dinners at our local favorite restaurants, lunch on Saturday at our host inn, wine and cheese reception with innkeepers. You will receive a preferred rate at our host inn, which are some of the best B&B’s in the country. Many times you will have the opportunity to tour area inns behind the scenes. Our one day workshop fee is $99.00 for one person or $175.00 for two and includes instruction materials, follow up time with The B&B Team, and lunch the day of the workshop.

Q: Why do I see a wide range of fees for other seminars?

A: Some seminars are priced ala carte, and you will buy your meals separately. Others include the price of your lodging. Because we hold our seminars in a variety of different inns in destination locations, we keep the lodging separate but you enjoy a preferred rate. We feel it is very important that you have the time especially at dinners to enjoy the company of your peers and to have casual time to talk with us. This provides a memorable experience for you.

Q: Will there be time to address my questions and concerns?

A: Emphatically YES! We keep our seminars small so that there is ample time to personalize our program to allow us to cover the essentials while focusing on your individual wants and needs.

Q: When should I take your seminar?

A: Our seminars and workshops are offered 8-10 times a year in a variety of locations. You should take our seminar if you are seriously thinking about Innkeeping. Some people actually decide that Innkeeping isn’t for them, which is a good outcome for them. Others gain a focus which allows them to proceed more efficiently and knowledgeably. You may take your seminar or workshop based on a convenient date or location, but you shouldn’t be visiting inns for sale until you know what you are looking at, looking for, and why. Call us for more information on visiting inns before your seminar.
