Philip's Top 10 Reasons why he loves Innkeeping!

This came about through a contest at BedandBreakfast.com.
As a winning entry, our Top 10 was published in the April Issue of their monthly newsletter.
“I submitted this in March of 2004......it’s now several years later and I wouldn’t change a word. I just continue to have the time of my life.” -- Philip

Top Ten Reasons why I love being an Innkeeper:

  1. I get to meet the most awesome people.

  2. I love people and have so many opportunities to express that love.

  3. I enjoy watching people unwind, relax and mellow each day they are with us.

  4. Sometimes I feel I was born to serve people, so innkeeping makes me feel
    personally fulfilled.

  5. I had a restaurant (now that was a hate thing).....and the only part of that
    business that I really enjoyed...was serving people, talking with people and
    giving them a wonderful experience.

  6. I can't tell you what reading the comments in our guest books does for me
    emotionally. I turn to mush, not really believing it could have been that great
    an experience.

  7.  I love to cook simple, normal breakfast food and I have no place to put the
    accolades I get for that.

  8. It blows me away that people just want to sit and chat for hours...I listen
    to their stories and tell mine.

  9. To feel their gratitude because I waited up late and welcomed them to the inn
    after traffic problems, endless drives, airport delays, snow storms, etc., etc.,
    .....what a blessing that is to me.

  10. I still can't believe (after five years of innkeeping) I can make a living
    doing something that is so much fun! I am one happy innkeeper!
