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:
I get to meet the most awesome people.
I love people and have so many opportunities to express that love.
I enjoy watching people unwind, relax and mellow each day they are with us.
Sometimes I feel I was born to serve people, so innkeeping makes me feel
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.
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
I love to cook simple, normal breakfast food and I have no place to put the
accolades I get for that.
It blows me away that people just want to sit and chat for hours...I listen
to their stories and tell mine.
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.
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!
