Bed and Breakfast inns for real

Opposed to what you see on Tori and Dean's show "Inn Love", running a bed and breakfast is hard work, and many of us do that work ourselves. We do not have someone to run it for us, nor do we call someone or give up at the first sign of trouble.

Rita and I have painted several of the rooms in the inn ourselves, in addition to the decorating, cooking, cleaning, furnishing, gardening, etc. only leaving the wiring, and exterior painting to professionals. It we had a one story house, we might have even done that ourselves.

There is not "someone else" taking reservations, staying up to greet late arrivals, or making breakfast, shopping, etc. It is us--and Lily helps too.

While it is most certainly work, doing what you love, innkeeping is a passion as well.
