Family Reunions

July 20th, 2015 by Janet Wolf

A good friend sent me a wonderful essay about family reunions. It struck a chord with me because we will be departing for a family reunion in California in just a few days. Since I was a child our family has gathered in just one location. There is much to say about traditions, especially when […]

T is for Trust…Especially Between an Inn Seller and Buyer

January 11th, 2012 by Scott Bushnell

Just yesterday I received a call from an innkeeper with whom I have had a relationship who was considering selling his inn, a 7 room bed and breakfast inn in a nearby state.  Just what we do!  Thanks for the call!   We opened up a dialog about the inn, its size, its location, discussed the process, […]

C is for Cost of Doing Business

September 27th, 2011 by Janet Wolf

Jay Karen’s Video Blog and the following posts on the PAII Forum got my brain a racin’. Like Jay we at The B&B Team visit many Inns and are also a witness to the good, the great and the not so terrific.  On the subject of hangers let me first reveal a story from my […]

Is Living Social or Groupon Confusing Your Performance Indicators?

July 27th, 2011 by Scott Bushnell

Countless inns are participating in the Living Social and Groupon craze (not sure if I should use the word “fad” there, which implies a short-term shelf life) and, as seen in previous postings from Janet and me, there are a number of “rules of thumb” that can make participation worthwhile.

Vintage Ohio

July 22nd, 2010 by Janet Wolf

From a quaint New England village to an island paradise in Hawaii, all of the inns in the small lodging industry have great locations to share with guests.

Mystery of Mattresses Uncovered

June 28th, 2010 by Janet Wolf

As an innkeeper and homemaker I have always been baffled by the mattress industry. Did you ever have a mattress salesperson give you a straight answer? The more you shopped, the more confused you got. Recently Rick and I ventured out to buy a new mattress. Just by chance we stopped in at America’s Mattress […]

A Good Table

June 17th, 2010 by Rick Wolf

After Peter’s recent posting about the simple joys of sitting on the porch and the numerous comments it elicited, I thought I would share a brief ‘reading’ with you…one I wished I had written, but will be pleased to share with you instead. A couple of weeks ago, Jan and I went to the wedding […]

Green Luxury
