Bed and Breakfasts
Passion and Lifestyle
As an owner operator of a bed and breakfast property, you will enjoy connecting with your guests on a personal level.
A special togetherness of like-minded people who share and enjoy stories from the kitchen, to events about the business, the wedding parties, the birthday celebrations and more.
It is not uncommon to form lasting friendships with the guests, and this type of guest usually becomes a frequent repeat visitor and serves as a major source of referrals for other guests.
The people who stay at bed and breakfasts are not ordinary travelers. They are looking for quality accommodation and service in a unique environment.
Selecting the correct type of Bed and Breakfast to suit your lifestyle will ensure your business reflects who you are.
Types of Bed and Breakfast properties:
This is the traditional Bed and Breakfast format with typically a 3 or 4 bedroom home with some character or point of difference.
The owners resides on the premise and breakfast is served and included in the cost.
This is typically a larger establishment with a minimum of 4 guest rooms and upwards of 12 rooms maximum.
These properties have a separate guest dining quarters and individual guest retreat. Breakfast is tradionally served and the owners are in residence.
These are the same in size as a Type B class property, with the difference in the guest quarters located in detached cabins or retreat huts.
This is an increasing trend with new properties as this provides both the owner and guest with added privacy.
The detached cabins are generally self contained though these properties can be operated with meal service or as fully self contained quarters.
