Taking It All In & Applying It!
For the most part, I believe I have covered most of the basics for those of you out there looking to book your next romantic or relaxing getaway at a bed and breakfast. Depending on what you are looking to get out of your trip and who you are going with will help steer you in the right direction in regards to picking the perfect home away from home!
Don’t Overlook the Basics
Remember what I have talked about in the most detail so far here at The Happy Guest. If you are feeling uncertain about the home owners or if they seem hesitant to provide you with proof of pretty much anything that is applicable to running a bed and breakfast, than you most likely have better options out there waiting for you.
Once all of the main concerns are checked off of the list then you can start looking at the aesthetics and general feels from each respective home and go from there.
If you want romance, choose the home that is further away from the downtown bar scene and is more focused on the house and property.
If you want to have a weekend to let loose and throw a few back, go with the house closest to the “happening” areas and you can focus less on the details of the actual home.
Apply To Your Own Life!
Don’t be afraid to take some of what I have talked about on here and use it in your own everyday lives. Now that my husband and I own our own home, we only go through contractors that are licensed & insured for repairs and maintenance. With the possibility of running a bed and breakfast again, we make sure to only go through contractors that are licensed & insured and have even became good friends with proroofersco.com – Owasso roofing and now have someone we can trust for all of our needs.
By taking the time to go over things in detail and only going through licensed & insured contractors for the upkeep and maintenance of your home will help you avoid major headaches down the road.
