Aspiring Innkeepers

If you long to run and inn or take over a bed and breakfast, do your homework first. Talk to innkeepers, as many as you can. Offer to stay, take them to dinner, whatever they want so you can "pick their brains"...it will be well worth it in the end...afterall, what if you decide that you don't really like getting up to make breakfast, or that chatting with strangers is not your favorite thing...better to learn that BEFORE you commit to changing your lifestyle and purchasing a new home (B&B).

Attend a conference, like the one at the end of the month in Santa Rosa, put on by CABBI and get to know some of the inns and outs of really running a bed and breakfast before you make the change.
