The weekend session is our premier and most in-depth future innkeeper program and allows for more face time and interaction with your instructors. The weekend seminar package includes group instruction, workbooks, personalized follow-up consultation, meals, breaks, and wine and cheese reception. Dinner our first evening together is fun and casual; Saturday night is a more upscale yet relaxed affair, and you are the guests of The B&B Team for both, plus your lunch on Saturday. The cost of your lodging during the seminar is additional, and we have negotiated a preferred rate for our seminar attendees.
In addition to the seminar on starting a bed and breakfast itself, as a graduate, you will be eligible for a personal, half-day planning session with one of us at our office or over the phone.
Attendees for the weekend seminars should plan on checking in as close to 3:00 PM as possible as the Opening Session will begin at 4:00 PM Friday afternoon. Please plan on departing after 2:30 PM on Sunday if you participate in the local inn tours or around 12:30 if you can’t join us, or we are not conducting a local tour.
