When you need to be away from the Inn and decide to close for those days, you not only lose revenue from rooms that would have been rented, you miss the opportunity for those guests to return and also refer their friends and family to you. So the impact is greater than just those initial room nights. And those guests who wanted to stay at your Inn but couldn't because you were closed, will stay at another area Inn and if they love their stay, they may never opt to stay with you in the future.

Our Process ... How We Work
We realize that finding the right interim innkeepers to fill in for you is personal - and it has to be that right "fit." For that reason we are happy to meet with you, at no cost, to further discuss your needs and to give you peace of mind that we will provide the right experience for your guests We gladly will meet with properties that are within 90 minutes from our location in New Hampshire. For locations that exceed that distance, we are available to meet with you via video chat at your convenience.
After meeting with us, if we all agree to proceed, prior to arrival we will:
thoroughly review your website to fully understand your unique property, amenities and services;
research the area to obtain a listing of top restaurants, popular attractions and area activities;
read all your online guest reviews to have a better appreciation for what your guests value most when staying at your inn.
1. up to a half day of on-site for orientation; 2. lodging & light meals (lodging typically in one of your guest rooms or in your owners quarters); 3. payment by check or cash, up to 50% with a signed Agreement and the balance upon departure.`
Our daily rate varies based on the assignment, size of property, duration, services provided and also takes into account your property's average daily room rate. Compensation also includes time* and mileage traveling to and from your property as well as the orientation period.
*When traveling to a property within two hours from our location in Newfields, NH, travel time is not charged and the only travel expense is the IRS mileage rate of .585 per mile round trip. If your property is located more than two hours from our location, then travel time is charged after that at the rate of $25 per hour.
No Surprises Once we talk through all the specifics of your assignment, agree upon the appropriate rate, we will prepare a detailed Agreement, outlining the mutually agreed upon expectations and compensation for the assignment. The Agreement will be emailed to you for your review and signature and needs to be returned with a deposit check to secure the engagement.
