    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.

    0 5/5 Claudine Clarke - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bed & Breakfast (Kindle Edition) This is the kind of book you read curled up with a fire in the winter. I absolutely loved Ricky and Ron and the supporting cast members. There were some areas that I wish were expanded like how Ricky got into IT, and some other stuff, but it by no means detracted from the story. I will truly miss reading new books from this authour, but one must do what one must do for oneself.I highly recommend this book and I wish you all the best G. A.

    a wonderful love story that takes place at a small B&B ...

    This penultimate book by GA is, as usual, a wonderful love story that takes place at a small B&B in Oregon. The owner, Ron, is running this highly successful gay friendly inn by himself, while still grieving the death one year ago of his partner of ten years. Among the guests staying after the season, is a family of four, Rickey, a gorgeous 21 year old gay man, his obnoxious sister, his right wing father who is a pastor in South Carolina, and his clueless mother. Rickey quickly is attracted to Ron and aggressively tries to have sex with him. Ron is also very attracted to Rickey who is quite beautiful but is almost 20 years younger than Ron and is staying at the inn with his family. Nevertheless, Ron does give in and the two of them spend a good part of the weekend having a secret and sexually hot series of encounters. This is a lovely and simple love story that the reader should be able to sit back and enjoy; unlike many of the books that are being written lately in the M/M... 5/5 Richard F.

At the time I didn't realize it was a romance between an older and younger man. Reminds me of myself. I'm 42 and my boyfriend is 25.Reading this story makes me want to own a bed and breakfast now. It was so sweet. And I know what Ricky feels like in the story. He and his family were from South Carolina and there is not much in this state for gay men. I am from there too. I'd love to live in the Pacific Northwest myself. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 27, 2014
