    I am so happy that I don't have to write this book!

    I have been an Innkeeper and now an Inn Consultant for 15 years. One of the things on my to do list was to put together all of my thoughts and blog articles into a book on Innkeeping which updated all of the prior ones that are no longer available. Now I am just thrilled that Mary White has written the definitive work on Innkeeping, and, of course, now I don't have to do it.We tell our prospective innkeepers in our Seminars on Innkeeping a lot of the information that Mary has compiled, but here it is all in one place and easily accessible to everyone. Nothing left out and a clear understanding that Innkeeping is a 24/7 job with a lot of sacrifices. It is not retirement, and it is not Bob Newhart in a cardigan sweater. Mary lays it all out for the reader, clearly and with all of the downsides, as well as the joys of sharing your lives as innkeepers with some of the greatest guests that you could every hope to meet. We always said that they came as guests and left the... 5/5 Howard J.

The variety of inns and accomodations has been amazing. We have used the book on both coasts and have not been disappointed one time. Even though we are always on a budget, the wonderful 2 for 1 coupon allows us to go places we normally could not afford.My hat off to the publisher, editor, and producer of this very fine listing--the book's ease of use and tremendous value and breadth deserves at least one trial. My family and I look forward to the little "sidetrips" that naturally come with going with something a little different. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 16, 1999

    A Truly Professional Approach

    If you're planning to open a bed and breakfast as a hobby or with the notion that "you're not really running a business, you're just making profits in your free time," this is not the book for you. This book covers almost all potential areas that you'll need to know to run a professional B&B, and the level of detail will quickly dissuade anyone who isn't serious. That having been said, anyone who does want to run a professional bed and breakfast will find the information invaluable. The forms included on the enclosed CD pay for the book themselves--everything from employment applications to inventory forms, invoices, standard recipe cards, and kitchen safety inspection forms. The book covers all stages of the planning and setup process, including business plans, marketing and promotion, safety, and employees. Particularly useful is the section on marketing, something that most B&Bs that I've known tend to ignore.

    Very Helpful

    This book is absolutely great. It offers a realistic look into what it would be like to own a bed and breakfast. I assumed correctly that it would be a labor intensive gig, but the book pointed out so many things that I had never thought about - such as serving breakfast may require special licensing in my state/city.This book is perfect for anyone thinking about owning and operating their own B&B. From room decorating to recipes from other B&B's, "How to Open a Financially Successful Bed and Breakfast or Small Hotel" seems to address everything a new owner would need to know, as well as offers tips on how to renovate and update existing bed and breakfasts. It offers a number of resources to make sure you are in compliance with you state and local codes, as well as tips on how to get financing for buying such a place.There is a comprehensive guide that will tell anyone not current on the etiquette of meal service the appropriate way to set a table, serve... 5/5 Brandi M.

    Five stars because it's perfect for what it is

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer "Extreme Wood Artist" - See all my reviews This review is from: Bed & Breakfast (Amazon Instant Video) Not monumental Gone With the Wind or Schindler's List sort of five stars. More,the quintessential end of a long day, I don't want to think, be preached at, or feel depressed or like committing Harry Karry at the end kind of a movie because the main character sacrificed himself on a pillar of harp seals murdered by the bad guy. Bed and Breakfast gets five stars so you notice it in your movie search for the end of a long crappy day that you want to forget. It's predictable, but so are all romantic comedies. That's why romantic comedies are all about how well the cast mixes. In this case, the cast mix has a live play feel about it with likeable characters that bring a friendly giggle. After the movie, you'll go to bed with your slate clean of the day's cares and worries ready for the next day. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 7, 2013

    Dean Cain at His Romantic Best

    'Bed and Breakfast' has Dean Cain doing what he does so well- showing off his boyish smile and nice guy personality! This is a quality romantic comedy with all the usual elements. Of course, it's predictable; they all are. If you want a fun romance with a bit of conflict between the love interests, quirky but likeable characters, beautiful scenery and a happy ending, here you go.Dean's character is fixing up a huge home that he inherited from a friend. His dream is to open a B&B. He's married and still longs for his good-for-nothing and unfaithful movie star actress/wife who left him high and dry and is now filing for divorce.Now in Brazil, of all places, a sales supervisor(Paes) struggles to support her worthless brother, put up with a fun loving, self-center fiance, and try to keep her job.
