Innkeepers are a great group of people and when you get meet one who clearly "Gets It", it opens a dialog that is as rewarding as it is enjoyable. Dick Matthews, who along with his wife Pam, are the Innkeepers for The Hummingbird Inn just wrote an article for PAII’s monthly Innkeeping Newsletter that in a word, is Fantastic!
Without trying to paraphrase or embellish upon an already wonderful view of Innkeeping, I offer a tip of the hat to Dick for his insightful views and honesty. If you haven’t read the article yet, you can find it on the PAII site.
I called Dick today to introduce myself and congratulate him on his journalistic prowess, only to find he is a journalist who has found his way into the wonderful world of hospitality. The B&B Team’s upcoming Aspiring Innkeeper’s Seminar begins next week and I can’t think of a better piece to share with our group of Aspirer’s than this article.
You can tell by the image that I’m a gray-beard and I find out that Dick is one too…and that we both have spent some time "trodding the boards" as theatre-folk! Hey Dick, we’ve got a whole new set of stories to share!
Again, Dick, thanks for a great article about The Noblest Occupation.
