The term interim innkeeping means –a person who works as an innkeeper for a period of time while the owner is not at the property.

Rest Assured seminars offer an overview of information and important skills that one needs to acquire and develop. Each workshop will help guide you into setting up your business, market yourself, and show you how to manage and operate a variety of wonderful and different sized bed & breakfasts and inns.

The following are some of the items discussed in my two-day seminar:

Introduction to the Interim Innkeeping Business

  • Marketing Yourself
  • Stress on the Job
  • How to Handle Emergencies
  • Insurance and Taxes
  • Setting your Fees
  • Reports and Invoices
  • Tricks of the Trade

The cost of the two-day seminar is $200. per person, $375. per couple. Included in this charge are several handouts, my thorough Innkeepers Checklist (that every Interim Innkeeper needs before going on the job), copies of contracts/agreements, coffee breaks and lunches.

The seminars will be held in a variety of sites. Guest rooms will be made available and rates will be determined by where the seminar is being held.
The next seminar will be held:

April 17 & 18, 2004
Amerscot House Bed and Breakfast, Stow, MA.

I love the business and want to share it with others. After working as an interim innkeeping and in hotels for a number of years, I realized that I have something to offer other people who want to get into the business but don’t know where to start. I have developed a program to guide you.
