First Things First…
This one might be obvious to those who have never had any experience in either running or being guests of a professionally run Bed and Breakfast like yours truly, but I want this page to be for those who fall right into that category and don’t have much experience at all so bear with me on some of what I decide to cover here on The Happy Guest.
There are a lot of people out there who like to take advantage of unsuspecting guests without any real knowledge on what to look for in a bed and breakfast but don’t worry my friends, there are a few things you can do to make sure that you don’t fall as the next victim!
For one thing, if it isn’t too far out of your way you can always request to see the house first and do your own little investigation work to check out and make sure that everything is in working order and up to code. Those who run a proper and professional bed and breakfast have to abide by a certain and designed set of standards and codes to technically even be able to offer their home for random guests.
If anyone is at all hesitant to show you their home and allow you to take your own little tour around their place then this is an immediate red flag and you should start looking elsewhere. Someone who has nothing to hide and is proud of what they are offering will never be afraid to show off what they have to offer and should welcome an inspection with open arms!
