My name is Tom and I am currently retired, living with my beautiful wife of over 30 years. We have many years in running a bed and breakfast and have seen every sort of guest that you could imagine. There is a lot that goes into running a successful business and there are a lot of things that can be make or break deals as far as your guests satisfaction.
It is important to read your guests and understand what they want to get out of the experience. Some guests may want 0 interaction from their hosts and would prefer to use their time to themselves. Then there are others who love the interaction from locals and appreciate any sort of advice or recommendations that you give them. Both cases are very common and you never know who you are going to get.
I hope to help anyone out there who might be thinking about running a bed and breakfast or even visiting one to have a deeper understanding and appreciation as to what actually goes into everything. I loved my times of running our bed and breakfast and hope I can help others do the same.
